Hyatt Expands Resort Portfolio With New Mexico Opening

Hyatt Hotels Corporation has expanded its resorts portfolio with the recent opening of the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa in New Mexico. The 350-room destination resort is a cooperative venture between Hyatt Hotels Corporation and the Santa Ana Pueblo.

Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa, the largest resort ever developed on Native American land, is located on more than 500 acres just 20 miles north of Albuquerque and 40 minutes south of Santa Fe. The full service resort is situated along the Rio Grande and embraces the area`s natural beauty with breathtaking views of the Sandia Mountains and the “Bosque,” the native cottonwood forest indigenous to the Rio Grande. The rich history of the Santa Ana Pueblo and New Mexico are reflected throughout the property, which features Pueblo-inspired décor and architecture, superior spa services and world-class amenities in a relaxed, luxurious one-of-a-kind New Mexico-style setting.

“The blending of the Santa Ana Pueblo culture with Hyatt`s world class amenities makes this a truly unique resort experience,” said Scott Miller, president, Hyatt Hotels Corporation. “We know that our business and leisure guests will leave Tamaya with a new appreciation for the beauty of New Mexico and the history of its people.”

Each of the resort`s guestrooms, including 23 suites, open to a private patio or balcony overlooking the scenic mountains and native cottonwoods. Standard in-room amenities include two-line telephones and data ports, hair dryers, plush bathrobes, coffee makers, irons and ironing boards, refrigerators, desks, vanities, and quality toiletry items. Suites offer the added luxury and convenience of a separate parlor to accommodate small business meetings or intimate gatherings.
Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa caters to meetings, conferences and special events in 20,000 square feet of indoor function space, including an elegant 12,000 square-foot grand ballroom that can be divided into eight separate meetings areas. Multiple open-air courtyards, gardens, an amphitheater and a 10,000 square-foot open-air ballroom located in the cottonwoods on the Rio Grande provide ideal space for outdoor events.

A 16,000 square-foot full-service spa and fitness center features an array of services that will delight the most savvy spa vacationer. Spa services range from massages and facials to seaweed and herbal wraps. Product ingredients used in the treatments are indigenous to the area and resonate with the Southwest people and landscape. The resort`s fitness center features a wide range of fitness activities ranging from aerobics classes to weight equipment.
The resort offers guests a variety of recreational activities including three swimming pools, hot air balloon rides, horseback riding, nature walks and tennis as well as a variety of cultural activities including arts and crafts, bread making, and story re-telling. To enhance the cultural experience and share the flavor of old New Mexico, the Santa Ana Tribal Cultural Center “Shipapuh,” a museum dedicated to the history, culture and art of the Santa Ana Pueblo, is located on the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa property.

The name Tamaya is derived from the native language of the Santa Ana Pueblo and means “The Place.” The Santa Ana Pueblo settled on the fertile soil along the Rio Grande and Sandia Mountains more than a thousand years ago and have endured through the centuries by maintaining their traditional cultural and spiritual ways and their strong connection to the natural world. Today, they continue to own the pueblo community and property on which Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa is located.
