Drawing inspiration from traditional Indian architecture, the design for the Park Hyatt Hyderabad was conceived as a microcosm focused around an interior courtyard with terraced gardens, descending into a reflecting pool. The result is a modern-day oasis – a place of cool, calm serenity and tranquility – a refuge from the intense traffic, hot climate, and parched landscape outside.
The project built by Gayatri Heritage Hotels, a Gayatri Group company, with an investment of Rs.700 crore, has joined the select group of Park Hyatt hotels in the world.
Modern Facilities and AmenitiesThe sleek and modern eight-story structure is clad in natural Madurai granite from South India and features expansive glass windows. In addition to the indigenous granite, the façade elements acknowledge India's intense sun with the use of metal sunscreens, low E insulated glass and architectural accents.
This 5-star super deluxe Park Hyatt hotel features 185 guestrooms and 24 suites, in addition to 42 fully-serviced apartments. This building has a lobby and mezzanine levels, plus four floors of guest rooms topped by two floors of high-end serviced apartments. An atrium rises through all eight floors.
The lobby features an original John Portman sculpture that was commissioned by the owners. The sculpture is a twenty-seven foot high (8.23 meter) undulating form in a matte white finish prominently positioned at the end of a 131 foot long (40 meter) linear reflecting pool that runs the length of the lobby. Serving as a contemplative counterpoint to the dramatic atrium space, it is mounted on a thin reflective stainless steel platform that creates the impression that the sculpture floats just above the surface of the water.
The hotel includes a business center/board room, health club/spa, swimming pool, dining and other related amenities. The lobby offers the hotel´s registration area with controlled access to the guest rooms and serviced apartments. A ballroom, meeting rooms and pre-function areas are located off of the lobby. The conference center is located one level below the ballroom.
