India: Park Hyatt Hyderabad
park hyatt hyderabad

Opened: March 2012
Go for: The lobby

Located 15 minutes from central Hyderabad, India's high-tech hub, this new Park Hyatt outpost blends India's ancient heritage with the modern innovation the region is known for. Starting at 485 square feet, the 185 guest rooms are the largest in the city, with hand-inlaid walnut floors and marble bathrooms with freestanding oversize tubs and rain showers. The hotel features Hyatt's residential-style meeting concept, the Manor, with facilities designed to reflect the entertainment spaces of private homes. It's also the first hotel in town to offer fully serviced luxury apartments for extended stays. Memorable touches include large indoor gardens -- designed to maintain air quality -- that nod to India's exotic and enduring allure, and the hotel's dramatic lobby, a light-filled atrium with a 27-foot sculpture that seems to float just above the surface of a reflecting pool.

From $165
