The Hyatt group of hotels always define their properties as a way of living. With the basic philosophy of keeping things simple and classy works very well when it comes to customer experience. We spent a weekend there 🙂

Pune has been the education hub of Maharashtra and in the last decade has also evolved as an IT hub. Almost all IT giants have their office space in Pune and the infrastructure and reality business of the city is on an exponential boom. With the increasing existence of corporate hubs in the city, there is an obvious rise in demand of business hotels.
Hyatt Regency Pune not just fits but exceeds the demand with a huge property comprising of hotel as well as contemporary apartments.
Hyatt Regency Pune is a 222 room property located at the Weikfied IT Park, offset Nagar Road in Viman Nagar. Nagar Road being one of the busiest in Pune, it seemed traffic might interfere with our stay but moment we crossed the entrance gate, all the clamor was left behind and it felt calm and placid.
The driveway to valet and check in area is surrounded by trees which felt very pleasant. There is a mini pool fountain decorated with shrubs and beautiful lamps adding to aesthetics of the entrance.

After the 4 hour long drive from Mumbai, I felt very relaxed to enter the hotel.
We entered the lobby to witness a very modern and strikingly huge chandelier Despite its size and heavy weight this piece of art can be adjusted in height.
We collected the room keys and headed straight to our club suite – Room No 730. We highly recommend to ask for this particular room whenever you are at Hyatt Regency. Just have a look at it!
What we were most fascinated with, was the lavish royal bathroom. With glass doors et all, this bathroom is built for the royal look and features. Marble flooring immediately sets mood for some pampering. Especially because inside is a little surprise that will sweep you off your feet.
The bathtub is placed in the shower room (and I call it room, because it is a room). With a sky shower in a corner and the bathtub next to a giant window, you are bound to feel like a king/queen.
Oh, and there is Forest Essentials too.
After relaxing for a while, we took a quick shower and ordered coffee, finger chips and pancakes. The in room dining service was not the quickest (takes 25-30 minutes) but they did inform so while ordering.
Nevertheless the wait was worth it as Coffee and Pancakes were appetizing. The French Fries portion size was pretty huge and so was the coffee mug.
We brunched at The Cafe later that morning.
Post lunch we had a quick property tour. With bulging stomachs after the buffet, it turned out to be a good idea 🙂
Right in front of the entrance there are two diners ‘The Cafe’ & ‘La Terrazza’ and a standalone bar ‘The Single Malt & Co.’
All three share a common open air space which is also used to host DJ nights and other music events. The two restaurants and bar are adjacent to each other and interconnected as well, allowing the guests to hop in and out from one place to another.
‘The Cafe’ serves regular breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet along with Al a Carte too.
Timings: 6:30 am to 12 midnight.
‘La Terrazza’ is an Italian restaurant which is converted into a club on weekends.
Timings: 7 pm to 11 pm(weekdays) and 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm(Sat & Sun).
The Single Malt & Co. is a 24 hr open bar which also serves breads and starters.
Left from the entrance you will come across ‘Gourmet Avenue’, a small cafe with a bakery serving deserts and breads. Timings: 8 am to 8 pm
The property hosts a beautiful wedding room where couples and families can come for consultation about hosting their wedding at Hyatt Regency, Pune. Look how cute it is.
Hyatt Regency, Pune along with the regular hotel also hosts apartments within its premises. There are 81 service apartments which have a separate entry and access to the hotel’s facilities. The apartments are adorable too. Perfect for someone who is looking to spend some time in Pune.
The hotel also has a very cool Indoor Swimming pool which is temperature controlled. Awesome no?
And the very soothing Arogya Spa which we got to experience. Read about it here.
What we loved about the Hotel?
The Regency Club is a newly introduced facility at the hotel. If you are staying at any of the suites, you can access the Regency Club where cocktails, coffee, snacks etc. are served in the evening and is an exclusive area for you.
Next, day we had breakfast at The Cafe which was a simple but a scrumptious spread.
Ask the chef for ‘Podi Dosa’, and the special chutney with it.
We also attended the DJ Night at ‘La Terrazza’ which happens on Friday and Saturday nights.
Oh and we almost forgot, there is an in built ATM within a wall at the hotel too.
We did have a super fantastic time. If you are in Pune make it a point to stay at Hyatt Regency Pune and we are sure you will love it as much as we did.
