Sapphire Bay, the new $1 billion master-planned mixed-use development project on the shore of Lake Ray Hubbard with a multiphase opening beginning in 2022, announced today that Hyatt will operate the new Sapphire Bay Resort & Conference Center on behalf of a public-private partnership with the City of Rowlett. Set to be 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 seven-acre man-made Sapphire Bay Lagoon.
Sapphire Bay Resort will offer luxurious amenities, a full-service spa, state-of-the-art fitness center, six pools and tropical gardens. The property will feature more than 100,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space including two grand ballrooms, multiple-sized breakout boardrooms, pre-function areas, event lawns, and a special event island nestled along the eastern shore of the Sapphire Bay Lagoon.
The Sapphire Bay development is expected to draw more than six million visitors each year and the Destination Hotels brand, known for its standout resort offerings, will help guests discover all that Sapphire Bay has to offer including unrivaled views of The Fountains at Sapphire Bay. The Fountains' theatrical entertainment will feature nightly performances of choreographed water effects and animated lighting designed by the team of Martin Brinkerhoff and Associates, who has produced award-winning entertainment spectacles for the Walt Disney Company. Additionally, resort guests will receive complimentary access to the Sapphire Bay Surf Village, a captivating attraction featuring white sand beaches, resort style pools, a lazy river, swim-up bars, and a one-of-a-kind 600-foot-long surf lagoon serving seven-foot barrels to advanced surfers and smaller waves to beginners.
Offering more than a night's stay, the Sapphire Bay Resort will become Texas's premier meeting and event venue with a wealth of accommodations for conferences, special events, weddings, corporate functions and social gatherings of every size.
Sapphire Bay Resort will be conveniently located 35 minutes away from both DFW Airport and Love Field Airport and just 17 miles east of downtown Dallas, near the intersection of Interstate Hwy 30 and the President George Bush Tollway.
