The 141-room upscale, select service hotel is the first ocean-front Hyatt Place hotel in Latin America, in the Brazilian state of Rio de Janeiro
Elandis today announced the opening of Hyatt Place Macaé, a smartly designed, high-tech and contemporary hotel in the Brazilian state of Rio de Janeiro. Hyatt Place Macaé is the first oceanfront Hyatt Place hotel in Latin America and the second Hyatt Place hotel in Brazil, joining Hyatt Place São José do Rio Preto, which opened in November 2016. The hotel is part of a larger master development agreement between Elandis and Hyatt affiliates to develop a number of Hyatt Place hotels across Brazil.
Elandis led the design, planning and construction of the property with Hyatt employing more than 40 associates to manage and operate the hotel.
The 10-story, 141-roomed hotel, centrally located in the Cavaleiros neighbourhood, offers casual hospitality and purposeful service to meet the needs of today’s business and leisure travellers and features flexible meeting and event spaces, a lobby lounge, a restaurant, and a business centre. The hotel also offers a fitness centre with a pool and a deck area on the top floor with views over the ocean.
Located 110 miles northeast of Rio de Janeiro, Macaé is known as the “National Petroleum Capital” of Brazil and maintains a robust offshore oil industry that brings executives from around the country and globe to the city for business purposes. The city also recently received an ‘A’ rating by Brazil’s Minister of Tourism (MTur), placing it amongst the top-rated cities for tourism in the country. The thoughtful service offered at Hyatt Place Macaé will provide both business and leisure travellers with an optimal choice while visiting the city.
“We are excited to see this hotel becoming a reality under our joint venture with Hyatt and looking forward to seeing Macaé grow as a business and leisure tourism destination,” said Alexandros Kallantzis, Head of Brazil, Elandis. “We are proud of having successfully delivered the project on schedule and on budget.”
