Five New and Noteworthy Additions to Hyatt Privé

The latest additions to our luxury travel program include many exciting “firsts” alongside welcome returns to familiar destinations. Rediscover your favorite or find something new to love with an insider tip from those in the know at each locale.

Alila Kothaifaru Maldives

The Alila brand returns to the Maldives with this year’s opening of Alila Kothaifaru Maldives. Located in the Raa Atoll and reached via a scenic 45-minute seaplane journey from Malé, a stunning house reef surrounds this private island retreat. Explore the area’s rich marine life with abundant snorkeling and diving options, plus excursions to the Hanifaru Bay UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.

The island’s lush, natural landscape leads the resort design – restaurants and bars are mostly open to the sea, while the spa’s treatment rooms are elevated to the treetops, where the leafy canopy provides the utmost privacy. Enjoy spectacular sunrise or sunset views from one of the 80 pool villas, of which 44 are beachfront and 36 are perched over water with direct access to the sea.


Discover “The Art of the Coconut” and learn how the coconut is used in everyday Maldivian life, whether in food, creating art, or making coir ropes. This unique experience includes cooking and mixology classes, a spa treatment, and more.

Hôtel du Palais Biarritz

New to the Unbound Collection and Hyatt Privé, Hôtel du Palais Biarritz has reopened after an extensive interior renovation. The crown jewel of France’s Basque Country coast was built in 1855 by Napoléon III for his wife, Princess Eugénie de Montijo. This imperial residence is now an alluring luxury hotel, attracting elite travelers seeking the ultimate royal treatment.

From its prominent position overlooking the ocean’s edge, Hôtel du Palais Biarritz invites an indulgent stay with refined French design, exquisite dining, and rare artwork throughout.


When in Biarritz, head to central Rue des Halles to browse high-end boutiques and local market stalls. The most popular wares include handmade espadrilles, chili pepper products, woven bags, and Basque linen fabrics.

Hotel La Compañia

The first hotel in Central America to be part of the exclusive Unbound Collection by Hyatt, Hotel La Compañía spans an entire city block in the heart of Casco Antiguo, Panama’s colorful historic district. Originally built as a Jesuit convent in 1688 and beautifully restored to the height of contemporary luxury. The hotel’s 88 guestrooms are divided into three wings, where three significant eras of Panama’s history – French Colonial, Spanish Colonial, and American Beaux-Arts – come to life through distinctive design and architecture.

Hotel La Compañia’s multiple restaurants and bars draw on the same historic inspiration. El Santuario’s ornate stone interior is reminiscent of an old Spanish church, while the old-school wood and brass finishings of the American Bazaar pay homage to the original building, a men’s department store built in 1905. For the ideal vantage point of the surrounding Casco Antiguo neighborhood, the rooftop pool and bar provide sweeping views of the city, Ancon Hill, and the Pacific Ocean.


Considered a UNESCO Cultural World Heritage Site, the Casco Antiguo district is best explored on foot. Follow the cobblestone streets past the nesting herons at the Presidential Palace, the French obelisk at the Plaza de Francia, and the iconic Metropolitan Archcathedral Basilica.

7Pines Resort Sardinia

Another exciting first, the opening of 7Pines Resort Sardinia represents the first hotel in Italy to join the Destination by Hyatt portfolio, and the first Hyatt-affiliated hotel in Sardinia. Cradled by the natural contours of Baja Sardinia, this stunning resort invites guests to wander through its sprawling, fragrant gardens to discover secluded, unspoiled beaches and wild coves.

7Pines Resort Sardinia is a true reflection of its Costa Smeralda locale. The hotel’s 76 guestrooms and suites feature locally crafted materials unique to Sardinia, with immersive views of the resort’s lush gardens, tranquil Laguna pool, or private beaches. Three restaurants offer an authentic taste of local flavors and the Pure Seven Spa, set to open in summer of 2023, will feature holistic treatments inspired by Sardinia’s uplifting scenery and culture.


For the best view in town, head to the Cone Club just before sunset. Sip Champagne, signature cocktails, or handpicked wines as the sun slips behind the dramatic Costa Smeralda coastline.

Grand Hyatt Shenzhen

Another exciting addition to Hyatt Privé is Grand Hyatt Shenzhen, located at the center of Shenzhen’s dynamic business and entertainment district, Luohu. This prestigious address is steps away from the popular shopping avenue, Dongmen, and well-connected to numerous art galleries, museums, and botanical gardens.

Grand Hyatt Shenzhen is a destination in itself, featuring eight distinctive restaurants and bars, a resort-style spa, and a heated outdoor swimming pool with sun deck. 471 luxurious rooms and suites offer spectacular views of the city skyline or Hong Kong mountains, all with floor-to-ceiling windows and contemporary, high-end design.


Tucked among the Shenzhen sprawl, Lizhi Park (or Lychee Park) is one of the city’s oldest green spaces. Stroll the walking path around the central pond, past a forest of lychee trees and over an impressive arched footbridge.
