An affiliate of the US-based hospitality firm Hyatt Hotels and Banyan Cay Development (BCD) have signed a franchise agreement for the development of Banyan Cay Resort & Golf, a Destination Hotel-branded hotel in Florida, US.

Slated to be opened in late next year, the new hotel will mark the entry of the Destination Hotels brand into Florida.

To be located near West Palm Beach International Airport, Banyan Cay Resort & Golf will include 150 guestrooms, a 5,000ft2 spa and a fitness centre.

It will also include tennis pavilion, swimming pools, and three food and beverage venues, including signature restaurants and golf clubhouse dining.

Hyatt Americas development senior vice-president David Tarr said: “At Hyatt, we prioritise thoughtful growth in locations that matter most to our guests, World of Hyatt members and customers, and we are excited to introduce Hyatt’s high-quality and distinct experiences to West Palm Beach.

“We look forward to collaborating with Banyan Cay Development to expand the Destination Hotels brand footprint and provide travellers with a unique, upscale resort option.”

The new Destination Hotel-branded location will also comprise more than 10,000ft2 of planned indoor meeting and events spaces. It will also have space to host private functions, conferences, and gatherings.

The new Banyan Cay Resort & Golf will offer 22 private resort villas, 130-acre Jack Nicklaus signature golf course and clubhouse that is now open and operating.

Banyan Cay Development founder Domenic Gatto said: “We are thrilled to collaborate with Hyatt on plans to introduce the first golf resort in the city of West Palm Beach and provide guests with an elevated stay experience that embodies the laid-back elegance and spirit of southern Florida.

“With its longstanding reputation in stand-out resort offerings, the Destination Hotels brand is perfectly suited to help guests discover all that the resort will offer.”
