Hyatt to Open Hotel Complex in Moscow Region

Hyatt Hotels Corporation will open its first luxury hotel complex in the Moscow region in 2017, Vedomosti reported Thursday.

Hyatt has signed a special agreement with Alexander Klyachin's Gleden Invest Group.

Klyachin is a major property developer and one of the Moscow region's largest landowners. His real estate development company, Vector Investments, manages about 7,000 hectares in the region.

He also owns Azimut Hotels, which operates 20 hotels, including the Metropol and Renaissance Moscow Olympic in central Moscow.

The new 5-star hotel, the Hyatt Regency Moscow Istra Resort, will be the first of its kind built by a big hotel chain in the Moscow region.

The hotel complex will be built by 2017 in Istra, a small town 40 kilometers west of Moscow. Its facilities will include 168 rooms, 52 apartments for longer term rent, a conference-room, a fitness-club with two swimming pools, a spa, and a restaurant and bar.

Investment in the project is estimated at about $150-160 million. Experts say it will break even in 10 to 12 years.  

Moscow currently has only one Hyatt brand hotel — the Ararat Park Hyatt on Neglinnaya street, within walking distance of the Kremlin. Another one, Hyatt Regency Moscow Petrovsky Park near the city's Dynamo stadium,  is due to open in 2015.  

Hyatt has an addition 3 projects  under construction in the regions — in Rostov, Sochi and Vladivostok.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
