Hyatt is set to become the first international renowned hotel chain to open a luxury establishment in Iraq. The news comes as the war-torn nation fights its way back to stability. A sign of this newfound prosperity is the fact that the new Hyatt Regency Sulaymaniyah will not fall short of the Hyatt brand name tradition, neither on features or grandiose.

This magnificent new development will be equipped with 210 guestrooms, an all-day open restaurant, over 17,500 square feet (1,660 square meters) of meetings space for corporate events.

As you may expect, the hotel will offer a complete quality of life infrastructure including a fitness center, five spa rooms, and 3 swimming pools.

The Hyatt Regency Sulaymaniyah will be the single hotel in Hawary Shar Park, a 240 acres leisure and entertainment park currently under development. The new region will also offer a shopping mall, a golf course and zoological gardens. Sulaymaniyah is located at 210 miles northeast of Baghdad.

“Bringing the Hyatt brand to Iraq is one of the most exciting projects we have in development. Kurdistan is a stable and prosperous area of Iraq, and as a result, the economy is growing and demand for lodging accommodations is rising,” said Peter Norman, senior vice president, real estate and development, for Hyatt Hotels & Resorts in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. “There is great potential for growth in Iraq and throughout the Middle East, and we look forward to introducing the Hyatt brand to guests visiting the region. Hyatt Regency Sulaymaniyah will offer a full range of services, amenities and dining options to meet the needs of both business and leisure travelers.”
