Hyatt Hotels Corporation, in conjunction with Interlink and Vivo Beach Club, has announced intentions to open Puerto Rico’s first Hyatt Centric branded hotel. The Hyatt Centric San Juan Isla Verde will be located in the popular Isla Verde district, just one block from Isla Verde Beach and within walking distance of restaurants, shopping, historical attractions, and nightlife.

The hotel is now undertaking a $25 million renovation project to rebuild all guestrooms, suites, and public spaces, which will be inspired by Puerto Rico’s enchanted scenery and incorporate a fusion of the island’s compelling land and water components.

Camilo Bolaños, senior vice president of development, Latin America & the Caribbean, Hyatt said, “We’re excited to work with Interlink and Vivo Beach Club to bring the Hyatt Centric lifestyle brand to Puerto Rico and expand Hyatt’s brand presence in a thriving market. Hyatt Centric San Juan Isla Verde will be situated in the heart of the Isla Verde neighborhood, allowing guests to truly experience the locale but also discover other nearby beaches and at­tractions that spark curiosity and connection.”

Once open, the Hyatt Centric San Juan Isla Verde will have 223 guestrooms in a prime location less than a block from the award-winning Isla Verde Beach. The hotel will have a common space that will serve as the hotel’s social hub, complete with a distinctive restaurant and bar, an open-air beer garden, and a coffee shop with a local flair. The hotel will also have a modern fitness facility, more than 16,000 square feet of conference space, a resort-style pool deck surrounded by tropical foliage, and a regionally inspired restaurant and pool bar. To supplement the local lifestyle experience, guests will have complimentary access to Vivo Beach Club, an oceanfront private beach club designed for people of all ages that includes a free form pool, three restaurants, four bars, an outdoor concert stage with seating capacity for 3,500 people, 12,000 square feet of meeting space, and the award-winning Ocean Lab Brewing Co. micro-brewery.

Federico J. Sánchez Ortiz, President and CEO of Interlink, and Luis and Matías Fernández, co-owners of Vivo Beach Club, commented: “We are filled with pride to collaborate with Hyatt to bring the Hyatt Centric lifestyle brand to the renowned Isla Verde neighborhood. Puerto Rico has a lot to offer, and soon, guests and World of Hyatt members will be able to experience a new hotel that serves as an authentic home base to explore the magical island of Puerto Rico.”

“Today’s announcement that we will soon have a Hyatt Centric hotel in Isla Verde demonstrates once again the current success and potential of Puerto Rico’s tourism sector. Our beautiful island has become a top-of-mind destination for tourists looking to have an unforgettable experience in the heart of the Caribbean. I welcome Hyatt Centric San Juan Isla Verde and wish the team the best in this new milestone in Puerto Rico and thank Interlink and Vivo Beach Club for their contribution to Puerto Rico’s sustainable economic development,” stated Governor Pedro R. Pierluisi.

“We are excited to extend a warm welcome to the first Hyatt Centric branded hotel in the vibrant Isla Verde tourist zone, providing both business and leisure travelers a new hotel option. This forthcoming addition emphasizes our hospitality industry commitment to improving our offerings and supporting the ongoing growth of our tourism sector,” said Carlos Mercado, Executive Director of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company.

The Hyatt Centric San Juan Isla Verde will be managed by Highgate Hotels, an industry-leading hotel management company with a wide portfolio of hotels in North America, the Caribbean, Latin America, and Europe, including three other Puerto Rican properties.

Hyatt Centric San Juan Isla Verde will be the sixth Hyatt hotel in Puerto Rico, after Hyatt Place & Hyatt House San Juan, Hyatt Place Bayamon, Hyatt Place Manati, and Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve Puerto Rico.
