The property will be located in the city’s Baixa district on the pedestrianised Rua Augusta, and will offer a rooftop restaurant and bar, a spa and fitness centre, and signature Andaz Studio events spaces.

Hyatt to open first Portuguese property

The first Andaz hotel opened in 2007 in London, housed within the former Great Eastern Hotel, and there are currently 25 Andaz properties globally, but European expansion has been relatively slow.

Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht followed in 2012, followed by Andaz Vienna Am Belvedere and Andaz Munich Schwabinger Tor last year. A Prague property is also set to open in 2022.

Of the brand Hyatt says “Global in scale while local in perspective, the Andaz brand of luxury lifestyle hotels weaves the sights, sounds, and tastes of each property’s surroundings for a distinctively local experience”.

Commenting on the news Nuno Galvão Pinto, regional vice president development Europe, Hyatt, said:

“As we continue to prioritize thoughtful growth in places that matter most to our guests, World of Hyatt members and customers, we look forward to introducing the Andaz brand to Lisbon and expanding our brand footprint in Portugal.

“We are pleased to be collaborating with Feuring to expand the Andaz brand across Europe and meet a much desired demand for luxury lifestyle accommodations in Lisbon.”
