Top 10 Best Park Hyatt Hotels In The World

Tips : Accommodation

Park Hyatt hotels are the most luxurious brand within the Hyatt hotel group. I love luxury Park Hyatt hotels because of their blend of elegant design, local flavour, sophistication and gracious service. They are in a class apart. Guests enjoy beautiful surroundings, renowned art and exceptional food and wine at Park Hyatt hotels.

Park Hyatt hotels tend to be found in major city locations such as Milan, Paris and Zurich in Europe, as well as
cities across America (North and South), throughout Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

There are some also Park Hyatt Resorts which sit outside major cities, many in beachside locations. These include the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort, Golf Club & Spa in California, Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour, Park Hyatt Mallorca, Park Hyatt Zanzibar, Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa and the ski resort of Park Hyatt Beaver Creek in Colorado.

I absolutely love Park Hyatt hotels. All Park Hyatt hotels are great but we have selected those which we think are the best in the world below, so in no particular order, here is our selection of the best Park Hyatt hotels in the world:

1. Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi Hotel and Villas

Abu Dhabi is an amalgamation of old world charm and new age culture with trendy nightspots and the brimming cultural districts of the capital. All of this lies in close proximity to the award-winning Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi, which provides its guests with the best of both worlds: the ability to relax and unwind on the most pristine shores of Saadiyat, whilst also being able to get the adrenaline pumping with adventures on the sun-kissed sands of the Arabian desert.

The Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi is one of three Hyatt hotels in Abu Dhabi. There is also an Andaz and a Grand Hyatt and we have investigated which is best: Park Hyatt Vs Andaz vs Grand Hyatt Abu Dhabi.

At Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi you can lose yourself in the luxury of an island sanctuary and enjoy stunning views of the Arabian Sea, landscaped gardens, and pool from your private balcony or terrace.

This stunning hotel features 306 generously sized and luxuriously appointed rooms, suites, and villas, some with private open-air plunge pools. These are the best rooms to pick. Sea View Rooms are large with floor to ceiling windows and delightful, chic Arabian cultural touches. The stunning views of the Arabian Sea, Saadiyat Beach and the soothing pools of the hotel can also be enjoyed from the private balcony. Luxury extras include mp3 player docking stations, Nespresso coffee maker and an open-plan marble bathroom with dual vanity sinks, Hans Grohe walk-in rain shower a deep soaking stand-alone Toto bathtub and Le Labo signature bath products.

2. Park Hyatt Zanzibar

Zanzibar has always sounded like a mystical island to me. Perhaps I read too many storybooks when I was a child, about shipwrecks and treasures on these distant spice islands? But it’s not these stories that attract the luxury traveler to Zanzibar. It’s the stunning and unspoilt white-sand beaches that are better than those in the Caribbean, largely because of the lack of crowds.

The Zanzibar Archipelago is located off the eastern coast of Africa, in the Indian Ocean. There are more than 40 islands within this archipelago to explore. White-sand beaches are backed by thick green jungle and deep blue mangrove swamps, and inland you can explore vanilla, nutmeg and black pepper plantations.

Zanzibar City is the island’s capital and Stone Town is the old quarter, which is rich culture, heritage and history and dates back to the 1st century. The entire district’s been made a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In the heart of Stone Town, placed majestically on the beachfront, you will find the Park Hyatt Zanzibar, a quintessential five-star hotel from which to experience the idyllic East African island of Zanzibar.

The hotel is set amidst Stone Town’s labyrinth of winding alleys, bustling markets, mosques, and famed Zanzibari doors that feature magnificently ornate wooden carvings. The town’s attractions are easily accessible by foot from the hotel and include: Forodhani Gardens, the Old Fort, the Old Dispensary, the Peace Memorial Museum, the Palace Museum, and the House of Wonders.

The hotel itself features 67 luxuriously appointed guestrooms and suites that offer understated elegance, with a hint of Indian, brass-studded chests and large bathrooms with standalone tubs plus twin basins and monsoon showers and lemony Laura Tonatto toiletries and Voss water. The highlight of the rooms are the spectacular views of dhow harbours and the Indian Ocean.

Other facilities include: an 18m oceanfront infinity pool facing the beach which is pictured above; a fully-equipped fitness center, gift shop, jewelry shop, hair salon and a range of business, meeting and event facilities.

The Spa provides the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of Stone Town, featuring three large spa suites, a couple’s spa suite and a private, outdoor relaxation centre as well as a wide selection of body treatments and massages.

In terms of dining, guests can enjoy a selection of four elegant restaurants showcasing both authentic cuisine and more casual fare, all with oceanfront terraces overlooking the local beach and the sparkling Indian Ocean.

This wonderful Park Hyatt has direct access to a white-sand beach and the Indian Ocean offering understated luxury and terraces and infinity pool overlooking the beach.

Park Premium King Rooms are some of the best rooms each with their own traditional Turkish bath! All rooms are extremely well designed and well furnished with a clever blend of luxury but they remain fairly minimalistic rather than sumptuous or decadent. Even the Park King Room with king bed, work desk, and French balcony with city views.

They have made some really good choices in the art and photography (photos are by Ara Guler ) in the bedrooms. Park King room facilities include a walk-in shower, Turkish bath, separate work area and Complimentary wi-fi.

Most have a comfy mustard lounger, patterned carpet and lots of dark woods and browns on the walls, but it works brilliantly. Bathrooms are also large with Blaise Mautin toiletries.

The rooms differ greatly in terms of the view. Some rooms face the street or the courtyard, but the best suites which sit at the top of the building have the best views. Pick the Winter Garden suites which have glass walls and rooftop terraces (also with views).

Moreover, the hotel offers Moscow’s fine dining restaurants and bars.

9. Park Hyatt Mendoza

Located in Mendoza, Argentina, the prestigious five-star Park Hyatt Mendoza Hotel, Casino & Spa is one of the best luxury hotels in Mendoza. Located in one of the Great Wine Capitals of the World, the hotel is situated in the main business district in the centre of Mendoza, in front of Plaza Independencia. Compared to other Park Hyatt hotels, the Park Hyatt Mendoza offers inexpensive points rates. This means that using points is just one great excuse to stay in this beautiful hotel.

Alternatively, the concierge can recommend local Mendoza restaurants if you wish to explore local cuisine.

10. Park Hyatt Vienna

To be honest, ALL the European Park Hyatt hotels are incredible, so much so that we feature the best European Park Hyatt hotels separately. One of our favourites in the smorgasbord of of wonderful European Park Hyatt hotels.

Vienna is a city of music, city of dreams and the second largest “German City” in the world. Once capital of the mightiest empire in Europe, still the EU’s seventh largest. Half a Millennium older than London and much of it a Unesco World Heritage Site.

Park Hyatt Vienna offers the perfect ambience for a romantic and decadent retreat. The hotel opened in June 2014 following the unbelievably tasteful conversion of the headquarters of an Austrian Hungarian Monarchy Bank, right in the heart of The Golden Quarter.

Everything from The Opera to The Spanish Riding School, museums, cafés and the best designer label shops (including Vuitton, Burberry, Hermes) is within easy strolling range of this palace of good taste.

The conversion retains many features of the 100-year-old Neo-classical building including marble staircases polished by the leather of countless bank clerks’ scurrying brogues. The shape and size of the guest rooms and suites was determined by the layout of the offices and here there were some very important customers, so the proportions are generous.

Rooms are generously proportioned with comfortable seating and impressive bathrooms with luxurious underfloor heating, enormous rain-shower, twin sinks and temperature-controlled bath. Top-notch toiletries are by Blaise Mautin.

The judicious use of mirrors emphasises the sense of space created by very high ceilings and catches the light from the spectacular crystal chandeliers. From the vast quartz marble backdrop to the bath to the hardwood door-frames, no expense has been spared in furnishing the rooms and suites.

One of our favourite aspects of this hotel is the swimming pool, situated under the barrel ceiling of the old bank vault. The original vault door (think one-foot thick plate steel like a James Bond movie) is still in place though you now access the pool via a different route. The pool itself is lined with golden tiles in the shape of gold bricks and with calming piped music under the water, the pool is both warm enough for relaxing and large enough for exercise.

A plethora of relaxation areas are also available, from dark cosy corners for two to single loungers that are so comfortable, I wish airlines would use them in first class. Segregated saunas and steam rooms are available in the changing rooms.

Bank restaurant is a glorious space, with 8m high ceilings and opulent decor. The breakfast offering is of very high quality with many locally sourced ingredients. The restaurant has a completely different ambience in the evening with lower lighting and the backlit stained glass panels in the roof.

If you fancy a relaxing weekend away with a few shows or museum visits, Vienna is the perfect choice. This Park Hyatt provides a great base to explore and, perhaps more importantly, the perfect hideaway to return to.
