International hotel group Hyatt is introducing an extended stay brand, Hyatt House, to Africa - with the first to be located in Sandton.

The Hyatt House brand will have apartment-style suites, fully equipped kitchens and separate living and sleeping areas for guests who want to maintain their work and personal routines while staying at the hotel for longer periods of time.

One of Hyatt's affiliates entered into a management agreement with an affiliate of Millat Properties for Hyatt House Johannesburg Sandton. This will also be the third Hyatt-branded hotel in SA and is set to open in October this year. The other two Hyatt hotels in SA are the Hyatt Regency Johannesburg and Hyatt Regency Cape Town. The group also has seven hotels operating in the rest of Africa.

Hyatt House Johannesburg Sandton will have 43 studio guestrooms and 19 apartment-style suites. Additional amenities will include alternative dining options and an outdoor swimming pool.

Hamza Farooqui, CEO of Millat Group said in a statement that the aim is to collaborate with Hyatt on more hotels in the future. 

"We have every confidence in the resilience of the tourism sector in South Africa. it is a significant growth driver for the economy, which generates jobs and drives local development," he added.
