In hotel news from Armenia, a new Hyatt property is slated to open in 2015. The Hyatt Jermuk will reportedly be an 88-room new-build hotel in the center of Jermuk Resort.
A mountain paradise, Jermuk is famous for its hot springs and health spa accommodations in the alpine part of Vayots Dzor province. Local artificial lakes, walking trails, health and wellness and even an international Chess center highlight this Armenian resort area.
When completed, the property will offer some 170 square meters of meeting spaces, contain an open market with made-to-order meals and snacks around the clock, an all-day dining restaurant, a fitness centre, and indoor and outdoor swimming pools.
Hyatt Place Jermuk will mark the second Hyatt-branded hotel in Armenia, joining the recently opened Hyatt Place Yerevan.
The hotel will also be an ideal base for guests to explore the natural beauty and cultural heritage sites of Armenia, including the mountains of Vayots Dzor and the 1,000-year old Gndevank Monastery. Less than three hours away from the Armenian capital Yerevan, Jermuk regularly hosts international chess events, including the World Chess Federation Grand Prix tournaments.
