October 1, 2012: Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced the opening of Park Hyatt Chennai, marking the 30th hotel in the Park Hyatt collection and the first Park Hyatt hotel in the city of Chennai, India.
Designed for business travellers, Park Hyatt Chennai is located next to the prestigious Governor’s residence and is also adjacent to the thriving green area of the Guindy National Park. It is a short 15-minute drive from the city’s domestic and international airport. Mr Yann Gillet, General Manager, Park Hyatt Chennai, said, “The hotel is truly a reflection of this great city, with the art and design thoughtfully encompassing Indian heritage and culture.”

Rich travertine marble floors and plush hand-tufted rugs are luxuries found in every guestroom, along with polished marble bathrooms with deep-soak bathtubs. In addition, all suites feature exquisite, relaxing stone plunge tubs.
The hotel embraces the serenity of the surrounding Guindy National Park with flowing landscapes and relaxing interiors, complemented by a graceful Lily Pond dotting the heart of the inner courtyard of the hotel. The hotel also showcases beautiful, custom-made art installations that have been curated around the concept of Indian textiles and heritage.
Park Hyatt Chennai offers an array of epicurean tastes and experiences in a wonderfully sublime setting at The Dining Room where guests can enjoy all-day dining, featuring traditional South Indian cuisine alongside European bistro favourites.
