MANILA, Philippines - A Hyatt hotel will open at the $1.3-billion casino, hotel and entertainment complex City of Dreams Manila later this year.

Melco Crown Philippines and an affiliate of Hyatt Hotels & Resorts have signed a management agreement for Hyatt City of Dreams Manila, which will have two towers with 365 bedrooms.

"Hyatt City of Dreams Manila will represent an important milestone for us as we look to further build brand loyalty in locations where our guests are frequently traveling. Through our strong relationship with Melco Crown Entertainment Limited, Hyatt is able to develop a world-class business and leisure offering in Manila," Ratnesh Verma, senior vice president, real estate and development, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, Asia Pacific, said in a statement.

Melco Crown Philippines chairman and president Clarence Chung said the new Hyatt hotel will further boost City of Dreams Manila as a destination with various accommodation options from luxury to business and leisure.

"Given the strong Hyatt brand name and the hotel’s ideal location, we believe Hyatt City of Dreams Manila will attract both business leisure travelers, as well as meeting and incentive groups, from across the region," Chung said.

The Hyatt hotel will have two dining areas, a fitness center, VIP lounge, and outdoor swimming pool. It will also have direct access to three distinctive entertainment venues, including a family entertainment center, a live performance lounge and a nightclub in the unique "Fortune Egg" structure.

City of Dreams Manila, located in Entertainment City, is a resort complex with casino, hotels, retail and entertainment establishments.

Aside from Hyatt, City of Dreams Manila will also host the Crown Towers hotel and the first luxury Nobu Hotel in Asia.
