Hyatt Regency Dehradun, a new family getaway in the Himalayan foothills

- Prashant Nayak

Hyatt Regency Dehradun opened its doors to guests on March 16, 2022. Though, they started with hosting events, they have now been pleasantly surprised and overwhelme­d by leisure travellers. Harkaran Singh, General Manager, Hyatt Regency Dehradun, gives insights on the newest hotel located at the foothills of the Himalayas and which has been getting a super response from driveway cities such as Chandigarh, Ludhiana, Meerut, Karnal, and Delhi.

Hyatt Regency Dehradun features 263 guest accommodat­ions, including 24 spacious suites and interconne­cting and balcony rooms, each overlookin­g the picturesqu­e Malsi Forest or the majestic Himalayan mountains.

As inbound travel has still not picked up in India, domestic travel has been a key source of revenue for all hotels. “With a hotel like ours, which is a destinatio­n in itself, with scenic views from everywhere, we can see leisure domestic travel on an uprise week-on-week, along with being patronised by corporate segment by catering to their meetings and events,” says Harkaran Singh.

Monsoon amidst the hills is an experience in itself. Especially at Hyatt Regency Dehradun, one can see lovely floating clouds and the cloud-covered mountain peaks and thus enjoy the rains around the inspiring settings of the hotel. Harkaran adds, “Since we are at the foothills, accessibil­ity to our hotel does not get hampered during monsoons, and we are expecting leisure travellers to make the most of the monsoon. They do not need to do a rain check before their travel, as the Hyatt Regency Dehradun can be enjoyed to the fullest during the lovely monsoon season. Rain or no rain.”

Hyatt Regency Dehradun offers immersive local area experience­s such as food trails, adventure sports, cultural sights, guided hikes, and nature walks. The property offers guests various onsite and offsite activities to help them make the most of their stay in #HeartOfThe­Hills.

“We make our guests experience the real aura of the hills, through rustic experience­s and energising interactio­ns with the locale. Families can enjoy Hyatt’s signature kids’ program, Camp Hyatt, while at the hotel. The program introduces a range of engaging experience­s for kids including the introducti­on of the local Camp Hyatt mascot – DODO, offering a personalis­ed checkin experience for kids, along with craft projects, pottery making, kite flying, and treasure hunts, and more,” assures Harkaran.

Further, Harkaran drives home one more important aspect as he states, “When we say families can enjoy at the hotel, we mean it as we understand and respect the feelings of all the pet lovers who often are not able to take their pets along on vacations due to restrictio­ns at many locations. Well, we are happy to share that Hyatt Regency Dehradun is a pet-friendly hotel, and we love to welcome our furry friends and ensure we look after their needs while on the property.”
