Hyatt Hotels Corporation says a Hyatt affiliate has entered into a franchise agreement with Bay Street Holdings Limited to develop the first Hyatt-branded hotel in Malta. The 153-room resort, located on the coastal destination of St. Julian’s, is slated to launch in 2021.

Hyatt says Malta’s tourist numbers have doubled since 2010 due to the destination’s increased popularity among leisure guests and high-end business travelers. Because of its proximity to shopping, restaurants and entertainment, more and more visitors are staying at the coastal destination of St. Julian’s. Hyatt Regency Malta will be a short walk away from the beach and marina, and less than 20 minutes from Malta’s international airport and the UNESCO World Heritage City of Valletta.

Services and amenities include notable culinary experiences, flexible spaces to work, collaborate or relax, and tools to stay connected for meetings and events. The hotel will offer event spaces and a five-story underground car park, ideal for corporate events, social gatherings and weddings.
