A new management agreement between Hyatt Hotels Corporation and CES Pirie Hotel (SA) Pty Ltd will see the return of the Hyatt name to the South Australian capital in the form of the Hyatt Regency Adelaide.

Announced late last week, construction on the new 295-room hotel will begin early next year with a view to opening three years later. CES Pirie Hotel is an entity wholly-owned by Chip Eng Seng Corporation Limited.

To be located on Pirie Street, the hotel will also offer a Market Café, a Regency Club, swimming pool, fitness facilities, a rooftop bar and 750 square metres of event space.

Hyatt Asia-Pacific Vice President of Real Estate and Development, Monika Dubaj, said the new hotel will fill a key gap in Hyatt’s domestic Australian network.

“The hotel is part of our strategy to provide more offerings to travellers as we expand in Australia, with new destinations such as Adelaide and Brisbane that will complement our current portfolio of seven hotels in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Canberra.”

Hyatt Group President Asia-Pacific, David Udell, said he was looking forward to bringing the Hyatt Regency brand back to Adelaide for the first time since its previous presence on North Terrace was sold in 2008. This hotel eventually became what is now InterContinental Adelaide.

“We are grateful to work with CES Pirie Hotel on the opening of the new Hyatt Regency Adelaide and are excited to bring the Hyatt Regency brand, which has a strong legacy and following, back to this vibrant city.

“Located in Adelaide’s city centre, the hotel will provide guests with the tools to stay connected and benefit from the hotel’s intuitive and personalized service,” Udell added.
