Stays at Hyatt Regency Trinidad don’t have to end when the meetings, conferences, and business gatherings do.

With a full service spa, rooftop infinity pool, fully equipped fitness centre and central location in the bustling capital city of Port of Spain, the Hyatt Regency Trinidad challenges its guests to make the most of what they have to offer and go beyond the meeting room.

MEET - With 428 guestrooms and 43,000 square feet (approx. 3,995 square metres) of meeting space, Hyatt Regency Trinidad offers the largest meeting space in the English-speaking Caribbean. An expert team of conference coordinators, food and beverage managers, entertainment and event planners enables the hotel to customise gatherings for 25 to 1,700 people. From state-of-the-art equipment and outstanding service to stunning waterfront views, there is no better place to take care of business.

“Our hotel is recognised as one of the top business and meetings facilities in the Caribbean,” said Russell George, general manger of Hyatt Regency Trinidad. “We want to encourage our guests to stay a little longer, have some fun and enjoy our beautiful island after the business portion of their visit is complete.”

PLAY- Once business is taken care of, guests can take advantage of the hotel’s amenities, including its exclusive rooftop infinity pool and bar, overlooking the Gulf of Paria, spa treatments with indigenous ingredients at the hotel’s Spa Esencia, the 24-hour StayFitTM fitness centre and the lobby sushi bar. Excursions around the island include a visit to Maracas Beach, the most famous beach in the north of Trinidad, about a 45-minute drive from the hotel. Approximately 1 ¼ miles long, this beach is home to stands selling the famous Bake and Shark sandwiches.

Golf enthusiasts can play a round at one of Trinidad's premier golf courses, for example, the St. Andrew's Golf Club (also called 'Moka'), located in the hills to the north of Port of Spain. This championship quality, 18-hole course also offers visitors a restaurant, pro shop and swimming pool. A new addition to the island’s offerings is the Millennium Lakes Golf & Country Club, with panoramic views of the Trinidadian Northern Mountain Range. This is an 18-hole, par 71 championship golf course situated along the Arouca river. On Tobago, golfers can visit The Mount Irvine Bay Hotel & Golf Club course, the island’s original and most established course, offering stunning views of the Caribbean Sea from every hole.

Another popular option is a trip to the Asa Wright Nature Centre, the oldest - and one of the largest - nature preserve in the Caribbean, with some 108 mammals and 400 birds. Formerly a cocoa and coffee plantation, most of the 197 acres is covered by tropical rainforest.

Of course there’s always the option to take the short flight over to sister island Tobago for a day of lounging on the beautiful beaches, a variety of water sports such as windsurfing and diving, bird watching or a visit to a working cocoa plantation.
