More details have emerged on Hyatt’s first-ever Hyatt Centric hotel in the Caribbean.

The new Hyatt Centric Barbados project is slated to debut in 2020, Barbados Tourism Marketing Inc officials said at a media briefing this week during the Caribbean Tourism Organization’s State of the Industry conference in Nassau.

The Hyatt Centric, which will be located in the heart of historic Bridgetown, will consist of a pair of 12-story towers with a total of 190 rooms.

It will also include a portfolio of penthouse suites.

Hyatt Centric, a new sub-brand that Hyatt launched in 2015, is one of the company’s fastest-growing hotel marques; it’s focused on “millennial minded guests in the upper-upscale lifestyle segment,” according to Hyatt.

The new project is being designed by SB Architects, who have designed a host of hotels in the Caribbean, with interior design helmed by DAS Concepts.

The project was first announced in 2016.
