Hyatt Will Operate Sapphire Bay Resort/Conference Center
Sapphire Bay, the new $1 billion master-planned mixed-use development project on the shore of Lake Ray Hubbard, has a multi-phase opening beginning in 2022. The Sapphire Bay development is expected to draw more than 6 million visitors each year.
Hyatt will operate the Sapphire Bay Resort & Conference Center on behalf of a public-private partnership with the city of Rowlett. Located on the Sapphire Bay Peninsula and expected to open in fall 2023, the resort will join Hyatt’s Destination Hotels brand and showcase more than 500 guestrooms, suites and villas, each with waterfront views overlooking Lake Ray Hubbard and the 7-acre man-made Sapphire Bay Lagoon.
Construction of the resort will begin in fall 2021 and is anticipated to be complete for a grand opening in fall 2023.
The lead architect for the resort is 5G Studio Collaborative. Brian Bridgewater with Manhard Consulting is the project’s civil engineer, and Lifescapes International will design the landscaping and tropical garden environments. DuWest Realty will handle project leasing. Cleartide Management Group is the operational design/programming consultant and management for the Sapphire Bay Surf Village.
