flooring, “oversized wet rooms clad in local fossalised limestone”, separate
vanity and dressing area, flatscreen TVs, DVD players, iPod docking stations,

relaxation areas, as well as a fitness centre.
Park Hyatt recently opened two new properties
in the Chinese cities of Shanghai and Beijing, and has properties in Hyderabad,
Jeddah and Ningbo (northeastern China) all due to open in 2009.
