by James Wilkinson

Caribbean Park has announced that a new Hyatt Place hotel will take pride of place at the award-winning business hub in Melbourne’s Southeast, which is expected to open in 2021.

Construction on the state-of-the-art development will commence in Q4 2019 and will be located on Caribbean Park’s Eastlink frontage.

Hyatt Place Melbourne Caribbean Park will feature 170 spacious rooms, a café, grab-and-go food market, bar, lobby lounge, and fitness centre.

The Hyatt Place brand is founded in extensive consumer insights indicating that guests seek stylish, comfortable, seamless experiences that accommodate their lifestyles and familiar routines. To embody this, the brand offers casual hospitality and purposeful service in a smartly designed, high-tech and contemporary environment.

The new Hyatt Place hotel will take Caribbean Park’s business offering to an even higher market benchmark, reaffirming Caribbean Park’s position as Australia’s premier business park destination.

A comprehensive masterplan continues to deliver new office buildings, expansive parklands, integrated landscaping, new retail areas and lifestyle facilities. The curated business address is set in wifi-enabled parklands and is home to market leading, contemporary smart buildings designed for the future.

Caribbean Park is now ‘the’ choice business destination outside of the CBD and boasts an impressive stable of first class organisations. This appeal will only be further enhanced with the debut of Hyatt Place Melbourne Caribbean Park in 2021.

The new Hyatt Place hotel in Caribbean Park will also provide a convenient option for visitors to Melbourne’s burgeoning Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Valley.

A major coup for businesses within the City of Knox, Hyatt Place Melbourne Caribbean Park is being designed by respected and award-winning architect Peter Ryan, in collaboration with SJB interiors.

“We’re all incredibly proud of what the Caribbean Park team has achieved over many decades with their talent and passion,” aid Caribbean Park Director Ben Spooner.

“Three generations of my family have been unrelenting in their dedication to making Caribbean Park a benchmark for others to follow. A bold and courageous vision has guided each of us and it’s incredibly satisfying to see our masterplan being brought to life.

“We’re committed to delivering the finest office accommodation and amenities available in the country for our tenants and the new Hyatt Place hotel is expected to be a shining example of this as we continue to deliver on this commitment,” Spooner said.

Hyatt Group President Asia-Pacific, David Udell, added: “We are excited to work with the Spooner family for the first time to bring the Hyatt Place brand into a world-class precinct such as Caribbean Park.

“Surrounded by open green spaces and leisure amenities and with easy access to major business districts, Hyatt Place Melbourne Caribbean Park will cater to high-energy professionals who seek work-life balance when on the road,” Udell said.
