Hyatt Hotels Corporation has confirmed it has entered into a deal with a franchise partner for a new Destination Hotel - The Banyan Cay Resort & Golf in Palm Beach County, Florida which is expected to open for business late 2021.
With 150 guestrooms, Banyan Cay Resort & Golf will offer independent-minded travellers a 5,000 square-foot spa and fitness centre, tennis pavilion, swimming pools, and three food and beverage venues, including signature restaurants and golf clubhouse dining. Banyan Cay Resort & Golf will be situated just six miles from pristine beaches and conveniently located near West Palm Beach International Airport.
Resort guestrooms and suites will provide an oasis of peace, quiet and privacy, designed in a refined and modern Palm Beach aesthetic. Situated by the resort’s tropical pool and offering scenic views of Banyan Lake, Banyan Cay Resort & Golf will also offer 22 private resort villas, including bell service, daily housekeeping, room service, private kitchens and spacious living and dining areas.
The hotel will also have more than 10,000 square feet of indoor meeting and events spaces, making it ideal to host weddings, functions and conferences.
“At Hyatt, we prioritize thoughtful growth in locations that matter most to our guests, World of Hyatt members and customers, and we are excited to introduce Hyatt’s high-quality and distinct experiences to West Palm Beach,” said David Tarr, senior vice president, development, Americas, Hyatt. “We look forward to collaborating with Banyan Cay Development to expand the Destination Hotels brand footprint and provide travellers with a unique, upscale resort option.”
Banyan Cay Resort & Golf is home to a 130-acre Jack Nicklaus signature golf course and clubhouse, which is currently open and operating. The golf course offers 18-holes of thoughtful play with gently rolling fairways, landforms, various water features, and sod-wall bunkers that provide both aesthetics and complexity. To date, multiple events, charity tournaments and qualifiers for major PGA sanctioned tournaments, including the Honda Classic and the US Open, have been hosted on the Banyan Cay Golf Course. Not only has the Banyan Cay Golf Course been selected to host prestigious PGA events, but it is expected to host many more events of similar calibre in the future.
