Hyatt offers choices that are closer to home

Swaying palms and white sands await guests at the Grand Hyatt Goa

TRAVELLERS from the Middle East seeking Eid getaways are choosing destinations within a four- to five-hour flight, according to leading global hotelier Hyatt. With Eid breaks tending to last no longer than a week, holiday makers are still choosing to travel but stay within a short flight from their home cities, maximising their time away as much as possible.

“Travellers from the Middle East tend to want to stay close to home when holidaying, especially for short breaks. With the upcoming Eid Al Fitr holiday, we foresee a large number of travellers looking for a holiday experience which provides luxury and style, but within a short distance from home to maximize their time away,” said Thierry Bertin, vice president World Wide Sales, Hyatt International – South West Asia.

Grand Hyatt Goa, the first Hyatt hotel to be located in vibrant North Goa, is a contemporary resort and spa built in the architectural style of a 17th century Indo-Portuguese palace. Located on the calm and inviting waters of Bambolim Bay, this enchanting destination resort and spa is situated just over four miles (7 km) from the capital city of Panaji and is located 20 minutes from the airport by car. Grand Hyatt Goa joins Park Hyatt Goa Resort and Spa, located in South Goa, in one of India’s top resort destinations. Spread across 28 acres of lush tropical gardens and rolling, green lawns, the hotel has 314 guestrooms and suites and a Royal Villa, seven restaurants and bars, an extensive outdoor pool complex and an indoor swimming pool.

For more adventurous travellers, Nepal is a unique travel destination with diverse offerings for travellers. 

Hyatt Regency Kathmandu is a luxury five-star city resort hotel situated 10 km from the city centre on the road to Boudhanath Stupa – the most holy of Tibetan Buddhist shrines outside Tibet. Another short flight from the region is stunning Istanbul, the largest city in Turkey, with an incredible long and rich heritage dating back to ancient times. Ideally located in the fashionable Nişantaşı residential and shopping district, Park Hyatt Istanbul-Maçka Palas encompasses 90 generously sized deluxe rooms including 20 residential spa rooms and 10 suites as well as the finest outlets in town. Housing the existing Emporio Armani and Gucci boutiques, the hotel is also within walking distance to many other upscale designer fashion houses, as well as ultra-trendy bars and restaurants.
