Hyatt has partnered with The Wharf (Holdings) Limited to open a new Park Hyatt hotel in Changsha, the capital of China’s Hunan province.

The Park Hyatt Changsha is slated to open in 2023, and will be the brand’s first property in Central China. It will be located on levels 54-63 of Tower 2 at Changsha IFS, a mixed-use commercial complex in the city.

It will be directly connected to two subway lines, and a 40-minute drive from Changsha International airport.

The hotel’s design is focused on “contemporary art and high-end luxury fashion”. It will feature 230 rooms, dining and wellness outlets, and meeting and events space.

Stephen Ho, president of Growth and Operations, Asia Pacific, Hyatt, commented:

“We are delighted to work with The Wharf to introduce the legendary Park Hyatt brand in Changsha. We look forward to this inaugural collaboration with a high-quality, experienced owner who shares our vision to bring guests an immersive luxury experience in this vibrant city. The project further emphasizes Hyatt’s commitment to expand its luxury and lifestyle portfolio in Greater China and will enable us to create purposeful long-term growth in the region.”

Stephen Ng, Chairman and Managing Director of The Wharf, added:

“We are excited to bring the Park Hyatt brand to Changsha IFS. ‘Building for Tomorrow,’ we have already invested over RMB20 billion (over USD3 billion) and introduced the world’s top luxury brands to make Changsha IFS a sparkling diamond in Central China. The new Park Hyatt hotel will be in excellent company as more coveted brands are coming on board.”
