Thursday Travels! Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa
Our first featured venue is The Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa. This venue is still under construction (Opening December 2009), however, Jennifer Payne, the Catering Sales Manager invited us over to take a sneak peek. Last Wednesday, we travelled down to Clearwater for our visit. I went down with my colleague and 'gab' pal, Evelyn Duran. We met up with the ever fabulous Carrie Wildes to go on an excursion of sorts and visit the new Hyatt. With our hard hats and glasses (safety first!) we went on our tour. Three words to describe the new Hyatt Regency: FABULOUS, BREATHTAKING and MEMORABLE.
This is a view of the hotel as it is now under construction. It is amazing!
If cool, chic and a contemporary style describes you, this is your venue for your next event. They will be able to host intimate weddings on the beach as well as great events in their ballroom, or the many beautiful terraces on property. Jennifer and her staff are designing menus that everyone will be able to customize.
Here are a few facts you may find interesting:

Here are a few of the construction site photos:

Looking across at another private terrace. The terrace is large enough to hold a great private party and the chef can even come up to your suite and prepare your food!
Saved this photo for last! I had a blast with these ladies. We are working hard!
We can't wait for the grand opening in December. They have begun to book weddings and special events. Yes, the brides are booking based on what they've seen so far. The Hyatt Regency Clearwater beach is beautiful, swanky and super chic!
Until next time,
