Park Hyatt Zanzibar – Market Opportunity

Park Hyatt-Zanzibar

The recently opened Park Hyatt Zanzibar is setting a new standard for luxury on Zanzibar.‭ ‬The beachfront Park Hyatt Zanzibar in the UNESCO Heritage site of Stone Town reflects the elegance of the Park Hyatt brand while embracing the rich local culture,‭ ‬heritage and historical significance of Zanzibar.‭ ‬In an Interview with MICExchange,‭ ‬Ms.‭ ‬Herrendoerfer,‭ ‬General Manager of the Park Hyatt Zanzibar‭ ‬commented,‭ “‬The Park Hyatt brand is committed to creating rare,‭ ‬intimate and unforgettable experiences,‭ ‬and we are thrilled to have our doors open and welcome guests from around the world to this very special location.‭”

Ms.‭ ‬Herrendoerfer,‭ ‬spoke of the reasoning behind the‭ ‬new addition to the Park Hyatt portfolio‭ ‬.‭  “‬We brought the Park Hyatt brand for the first time to Sub-Saharan Africa,‭ ‬and Stone Town on Zanzibar was chosen for many reasons‭ ‬-‭ ‬we believe there is a very diverse market we can bring to the island‭ ‬-‭ [‬we‭] ‬are looking at both the leisure and the corporate MICE sector.‭”

Indeed,‭ ‬the location and facilities make the hotel a very combinable option when considering the corporate meetings and incentive market combined with the Tanzanian mainland.‭  ‬With modern spacious meeting facilities,‭ ‬the appeal of authentic culture and its magnificent beaches and nearby islands for excursions,‭ ‬the Park Hyatt Zanzibar offers a stunning option.

‭“‬Dar es Salaam is a growing market and is becoming a very important hub for the meetings and incentives sector‭ ‬-‭ ‬ there is a lot of interest from leisure and the corporate sector‭ ‬for combining corporate sector meetings in Dar es Salaam with extensions to their‭ ‬stay by coming over to Zanzibar.‭”

Ms.‭ ‬Herrendoerfer went on to say,‭ “‬We are not restricting ourselves to a certain market as Zanzibar is so globally connected‭ – ‬We already have all countries coming to visit the mainland and the island,‭ ‬whether it’s on leisure or business.‭”

The hotel offers‭ ‬67‭ ‬rooms in a setting that is intimate with an emphasis on luxurious quality.‭ ‬Ms.‭ ‬Herrendoerfer commented,‭ “‬We are lucky enough to be in a building that has big historical significance here in Stone Town.‭  ‬We worked closely with UNESCO to restore this beautiful building,‭ ‬where our guests experience actually starts as they come into our lobby.‭” ‬She speaks of how the hotel fits into the rich island culture and authentic surroundings of Stone Town just a short walk to its myriad winding streets and alleyways,‭ ‬jostling traders and locals,‭ ‬where Zanzibar looses none of its authenticity.
