Hyatt promotes world-class courses


REGIONAL golfing enthusiasts can enjoy the benefits of playing world-class and award-winning courses across the Mena while also experiencing luxury world-class accommodation.

Kapil Aggarwal director of sales and marketing for Hyatt International Southwest Asia said: 'Golf is a hugely popular sport in the Mena region and enthusiasts often look for courses close to home, perfect for weekend breaks.' Hyatt offers some luxurious options for these golfing enthusiasts with its local properties.

Voted one of the world’s top golf courses is Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club, located on the shores of the creek and adjacent to the Park Hyatt Dubai. This Dubai golf academy, which offers a nine-hole par three course, is perfect for both beginners looking to learn and experienced players wanting to practice their short game skills.

The neighbouring Hyatt property, boasting 225 luxury rooms and suites, also houses the serene Amara Spa.

For those with a longing for sun, sea and mountains, Taba Heights Resort in Egypt (pictured) is set among 368 hectares of landscaped gardens and lagoons spread out along five km of beautiful, roving coastline. The Taba Heights’ championship 18-hole golf course was designed by John Sanford, a member of the American Society of Golf Course Architects, and overlooks Saudi Arabia, Jordan and the azure waters of the Red Sea. Guests can also take advantage of local attractions such as Red Sea diving and special spa treatments.

Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel and Villas, scheduled to open later this year, will be an exclusive sanctuary of contemporary luxury located on the much-talked about Saadiyat Island. Blessed with nine km of environmentally-protected coastline, the hotel offers unobstructed views of the waterfront from most of its rooms. Guests will have access to neighbouring 18-hole, Gary Player-designed championship Saadiyat Beach Golf Club.
