The group now has an outpost in the state of Uttarakhand, along with Delhi’s first Hyatt Centric.
World of Hyatt members considering a post-pandemic holiday in India have an ever-growing number of options; the past few days alone have seen Hyatt launch not one but two new properties in the country’s northern regions. Marking the Hyatt Centric brand’s debut in the national capital, Hyatt Centric Janakpuri New Delhi (doubles from US$106) features 224 newly refurbished rooms with a playful juxtaposition of colors, textures, and handpicked bric-a-brac that reflect the city’s vibrancy. Locally made organic bath amenities with notes of Indian neroli and bergamot are provided too.
Downstairs, the all-day restaurant Kitchen District specializes in regional Indian fare with a modern twist, while the lobby lounge offers a curated selection of local chai, coffee, and mocktails, as well as house-baked pastries. Under the same roof, an impressive 4,830 square meters of flexible meeting and event spaces can host up to 2,500 guests at any one time.
The Hyatt Centric’s location adjacent to the Janakpuri West metro station will suit late-night arrivals, those on shorter stopovers, or travelers who need to catch an early-morning flight, as the hotel enjoys direct metro connectivity to the airport. In the other direction, Connaught Place is just a 30-minute train ride away. The hotel has partnered with local travel operator Unzip Delhi to give guests the chance to delve into the city’s rich heritage via its guided walking tours.
Hyatt has also opened its first-ever property in the mountain state of Uttarakhand. Spread across an area of roughly 1.7 hectares, Hyatt Regency Dehradun (doubles from US$276) is located less than an hour’s drive from Mussoorie, a hill station long favored as an escape from the summer heat or a snowy winter getaway. Travelers can unwind here in five-star comfort while taking in sweeping views of the protected Malsi Forest to the south and east. Designed as an urban resort, the hotel features 263 guestrooms, including 24 suites, across six categories. Guests staying in the Club & Suite rooms will enjoy complimentary access to the Regency Club lounge on the rooftop.
Hyatt’s commitment to caring for local communities and the environment comes to the fore in the hotel’s culinary lineup. Artisanal products from nearby small businesses will be sold at The Market, the in-house deli, while rooftop restaurant Beyul presents sharing plates that spotlight North Indian and Tibetan classics. Right next door, Sky Pool Bar & Deck offers grilled delights, refreshing cocktails, and “teppanyaki” ice creams; the lobby-level Malt Bar features a handpicked selection of whiskies and a global drinks list. All-day dining venue Range is styled as a “food gallery” where guests can take their pick from regional mountain specials and a variety of cuisines.
Recreational facilities here include StayFit Studio — a gym where guests can sign up for wellness activities like outdoor yoga sessions against a mountain backdrop — plus a spa equipped with six treatment rooms as well as a salon. Hyatt’s signature kids’ program, Camp Hyatt, delights children with a personalized check-in experience, along with craft projects, pottery making, treasure hunts, and more. Hyatt Regency Dehradun also offers immersive local experiences beyond the boundaries of the property, ranging from sightseeing excursions and food tours to adventure sports and guided hikes.
