The 408-room Grand Hyatt Rio de Janeiro will join Hyatt’s Sao Paulo property as the group’s second hotel in Brazil.
The ocean front property will be located in the upmarket Barra da Tijuca, a district which enjoys nearly 30km of beaches and which is often known as the Brazilian Miami. The area will host much of the city’s Olympic Games in 2016.
The hotel will feature two restaurants, a lounge / bar, pool bar, patisserie, fitness centre, spa, a 900sqm ballroom and a further 1,300sqm of meeting and function space.
