Hyatt plans first ski resort in the French Alps

Hyatt Hotels & Resorts has revealed plans for Hyatt Centric La Rosière, the first Hyatt Centric hotel in France and Hyatt’s first ski resort in the region.

Hyatt has entered into a franchise agreement with La Rosière Gestion SARL to be managed by Sophos Hotels.

The 71-room hotel is expected to open by the 2017-18 winter season.
Hyatt Centric La Rosière will feature a hotel bar, H40 Bistro Bar, and the fashionable all day dining restaurant, La Tavola.

Located in the centre of ‘Franco-Italian’ La Rosière, the hotel will operate seasonally, opening in December to April and again from June to September.

“Hyatt Centric La Rosière is an extremely important and exciting development for the Hyatt Centric brand.


“The deal marks the expansion of the Hyatt Centric brand into a new continent, as well as our first ski resort in the region, which we regard as a remarkable milestone,” said Peter Norman, senior vice president, acquisition and development Europe, Africa, Middle East and south-west Asia for Hyatt.

“We look forward to the growth of Hyatt Centric hotels in the region, meeting demand from popular resorts that will put guests right at the heart of the action.”

The property will join 13 other Hyatt Centric hotels currently open across the globe.

Launched in 2015, the Hyatt Centric brand includes hotels in Chicago, Houston, New York City, New Orleans, Waikiki, Hawaii, Arlington, Virginia, Park City, Utah, Miami and Key West in Florida, Long Beach, Santa Barbara and San Francisco in California and Montevideo, Uruguay and even more in the pipeline with properties planned for Barbados and Ginza Tokyo.

“We are looking forward to working on our first project with Hyatt to help introduce the Centric Brand to Europe,” said Fernand Donnet, chief executive, Sophos Hotels.

“Hyatt Centric La Rosière will offer guests a unique experience, combining an unbeatable location with superb facilities, a combination that has made the Hyatt Centric brand such a success.”
