Meet At Hyatt Regency Trinidad

Caribbean hotel offers easy access, flexible space and up-to-the-minute meetings technology

Hyatt Regency Trinidad, the Caribbean’s premier international hub for corporate travel, invites planners to take advantage of the luxury hotel’s accessibility from the world’s major cities. From expansive meeting space and state-of-the-art equipment to an expert team of meeting professionals, Hyatt Regency Trinidad offers meeting planners a one-stop shopping experience for the next corporate gathering.

Conveniently situated in Port of Spain’s waterfront development adjacent to the island’s main seaport, the 22-story hotel offers 43,000 sq. ft. of flexible event space including two ballrooms, an executive boardroom, a private conference room and 12 meeting rooms. The Regency Ballroom Foyer boasts floor to ceiling windows overlooking the Gulf of Paria. Guests wishing to take advantage of the temperate weather (an annual average temperature of 79 degrees Fahrenheit) can enjoy cocktail receptions and other gatherings in the hotel’s spacious meeting spaces or outdoor patios. In line with the ample event space, planners will find high-speed wired and wireless Internet available in all meeting rooms, public areas and guestrooms. Translation facilities for international meetings, a full-service business center and trained, professional meeting and event planners are on staff and ready to assist at a moment’s notice.

While a central location, flexible event space and sophisticated technology are important aspects of any meeting, Hyatt Regency Trinidad enhances guests’ experiences with delectable dining options and chances to relax and unwind at both the infinity pool and Spa Esencia. The uniquely designed spa experience maintains the festive environment of Trinidad and infuses the theme of celebration with pampering treatments to prepare, indulge, detox and retreat the body, mind and spirit. The hotel also offers a 24-hour StayFit gym, offering guests the opportunity to stay healthy despite the day’s busy schedule. Guests can also venture out to explore Trinidad and even take a day trip to enjoy the beautiful beaches and eco attractions on sister island Tobago.

Whether hosting a relaxed morning meeting or a formal evening event, the inventive catering team can present it all: themed pre-meeting breakfasts, from Caribbean and Continental to bountiful international buffets with omelet stations and bagel bars; "pick-me-up" breaks, offering everything from favorite childhood treats with local flavors to sliced fruit or health bars; and full deli buffets or lighter fare such as vegetarian wraps with fresh berry tarts for lunch. Hyatt Regency Trinidad’s culinary offerings also include an impressive range of hors d'oeuvres with a mix of hot and cold choices in a variety of ethnic themes for both lunch and dinner: classic buffets, featuring carving stations, seafood, cheese, local delicacies and more, as well as plated banquets or personal preference table side choices.
