Hyatt marks a new milestone in Portugal with the introduction of its Hyatt Regency brand. The Hyatt Regency Lisbon is expected to open in 2020 with 200 guestrooms and apartments. The waterfront location on Tejo River, situated between Rea Guerra Junqueiro and Avenida da India, is just a short drive from the historic city center and near many popular attractions, such as Lisbon’s two UNESCO World Heritage sites, Belém Tower and Jéronimos Monastery.

Plans include a spa, swimming pool, rooftop bar with river views, courtyard and garden.

“We are delighted by the announcement of plans for the first Hyatt hotel in Portugal as Lisbon is one of Europe’s leading cities in overnight stays and has quickly established itself as a prime destination not only for leisure travelers, but also for larger conventions and events,” said Nuno Galvão-Pinto, regional vice president development, Hyatt. “We look forward to working with United Investments Portugal on this exciting project in Lisbon. This is an important step for Hyatt as we look to expand our brand presence throughout Portugal.”

“We are thrilled to be working with Hyatt on our first development in Lisbon in a premier riverside location in one of the world’s leading cities. With its warm climate, culture, history, gastronomy and beaches, Lisbon truly has it all,” added Carlos Leal, general manager, United Investments Portugal.

By Land and Sea

CRUISING HAS CHANGED DRAMATICALLY over the past century, first providing travelers with a means of transportation and then ushering in a new era that attracted leisure travelers looking for variety in the midnight buffets and activity on the shuffleboard courts. The new generation of cruisers takes cruising to an entirely new realm, where passengers split their time on and off the boat for an equal mix of time on the water and on the shore.

The Island of the Knights

Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
