Hyatt Regency Jaipur Mansarovar and Bhopal’s Noor-Us-Sabah Palace are the latest additions to Hyatt Hotels Corporation’s portfolio in India.

Hyatt Regency Jaipur Manasarovar (shown above), which opened this summer, is the second Hyatt property in Rajasthan, one of India’s most popular tourist destinations. Spread across five acres, the 245-room property is near the renowned ISKCON temple as well as iconic landmarks and shopping attractions such as Hawa Mahal and World Trade Park.

The hotel offers a variety of room categories, including suites, in its two wings – the Royal Wing and the Tower Wing. The Royal Wing has 65 Royal rooms, 41 Regency Club rooms, nine Royal Deluxe rooms, and four categories of suites (Royal Majestic, Royal Prestige, Royal Diplomat and the Presidential Suite). These spacious rooms feature traditional projecting stone windows, known in India as jharokas, that provide guests with a bird’s eye view of the central courtyard. The Tower Wing offers 96 Standard Rooms and eight Regency Executive Suites.

Other amenities at the property include more than 53,000 square feet of function/event space, both indoors and outdoors; a 24-hour fitness studio; a spa offering Indian and contemporary therapies and treatments; an outdoor swimming pool; and three distinct dining options – Shrot (locally-sourced, regional dishes), The North Club (food influenced by India’s traders and colonizers), and The Royal Bakery and Bar.

Hyatt also recently announced plans for the debut of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand in India with the signing of a management agreement for the Noor-Us-Sabah Palace, one of Bhopal’s oldest and most sought-after properties.

Originally built as a royal residence in the 1920s, it was converted into a hotel in 1998. Now, it will undergo an extensive refurbishment to join the brand as a 60-room heritage hotel in 2025.

“At Hyatt, we are focused on thoughtful growth based on locations that matter most to our guests, World of Hyatt members and customers, and introducing Hyatt’s brands across India has been a priority for us,” said Dhruva Rathore, vice-president of development India & Southwest Asia, Hyatt. “Bhopal’s history and the Noor-Us-Sabah Palace’s rich Nawabi heritage make it a perfect addition to The Unbound Collection by Hyatt portfolio. This collection of independent hotels has seen great momentum across the globe, as each property invites guests to experience distinct culture and history, and we look forward to expanding The Unbound Collection by Hyatt footprint throughout the sub-continent.”
