According to Hyatt, “Since its original opening in 1986, the hotel has been known as a hideaway for jet setters and royalty alike”.

“The iconic blue and white building will be restored as a luxury resort reflecting memories from a golden age of travel, attracting independent-minded guests seeking a sophisticated yet unscripted experience.”

The hotel is expected to reopen in 2022, and will join existing Hyatt-branded properties in Spain including Hyatt Centric Grand Vía Madrid, Hyatt Regency Hesperia Madrid, Hyatt Regency Barcelona Tower, and Hotel Sofia Barcelona, which joined  The Unbound Collection in 2019.
