Some exciting news from Hyatt — the major hotel chain has just announced the opening of a new Park Hyatt property in Marrakech, Morocco.

Let’s take a look at this new hotel!

Park Hyatt Marrakech Now Open, Marking Second Park Hyatt Hotel in Africa

Originally set to open in early 2024, the Park Hyatt Marrakech has already opened with 130 guest rooms and suites designed in traditional Moroccan fare. The hotel has 3 dining options, a 23,000-square-foot spa, a fitness center, meeting spaces, and 2 pools. Additionally, the hotel is adjacent to the 18-course Al Maaden Golf Resort.

Park Hyatt is one of Hyatt’s most upscale brands and emphasizes thoughtfully designed details and world-class dining. You’ll find nearly 50 Park Hyatt hotels globally in some of the world’s most sought-after destinations like Abu Dhabi, the Maldives, and Tokyo.

Hyatt said the Park Hyatt Marrakech is a “highly anticipated addition” to the chain’s portfolio in Morocco, which is experiencing an influx of tourism.

“Offering a wealth of new experiences across the arts, culture, and gastronomy, alongside the area’s historic and ancient treasures, Park Hyatt Marrakech provides guests an enviable opportunity to discover the beauty of the Red City through this modern sanctuary of timeless luxury,” said Javier Águila, group president, EAME at Hyatt. 

Bottom Line:

This is the second Park Hyatt on the African continent after the Park Hyatt Zanzibar. The Park Hyatt brand will also debut in Johannesburg in 2025.

Booking the Park Hyatt Marrakech With Points

The Park Hyatt Marrakech is now open for guests and is part of the World of Hyatt loyalty program. You’ll be able to redeem and earn World of Hyatt points during your stay.

The property is a Category 6 hotel, which means award stays start at 21,000 points per night. That’s a steal, especially considering other Park Hyatt properties in cities like New York or Paris are typically Category 7 or 8 hotels. Cash rates are also available for around $700 per night for dates in April.

Earning World of Hyatt points is not easy, but they are incredibly valuable, especially in Europe, Africa, and Asia. Aside from earning points through 1 of Hyatt’s co-branded credit cards, you can transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards or Bilt Rewards points to the chain at a 1:1 ratio.

Final Thoughts

This is fantastic news for World of Hyatt loyalists that a second Park Hyatt hotel has opened on the African continent. Given that award nights start at just 21,000 points per night for off-peak dates, the Park Hyatt Marrakech might be the newest sweet spot for Hyatt redemptions in Africa!
