Hyatt Regency Irvine Unveils New Pool and Outdoor Spaces in a Lavish $55 Million Renovation

A Dive into Sophistication: The New Pool Experience

Designed by GREC Architects, the newly unveiled pool area at Hyatt Regency Irvine is a masterpiece of relaxation and entertainment. It features a zero-entry pool, ideal for families, and is complemented by a splash area and a soothing whirlpool spa. For those looking to enjoy a more exhilarating experience, the pool area includes two exclusive hotel waterslides, a rarity in the Irvine area.

Guests can indulge in the luxury of upscale cabanas, which are thoughtfully equipped with cozy firepits and a dining table for six, perfect for al fresco meals. The pool deck, surrounded by lush palm trees and native plants, is lined with chic pool chairs, offering a tranquil escape under the California sun. A dedicated bar serves poolside favorites, ensuring that guests’ cravings are satisfied without ever having to leave the water’s edge.

Adding to the entertainment, a large 24 by 17-foot LED screen lights up the deck, displaying live sports, evening films, and more, making the outdoor pool deck a year-round destination for fun and relaxation.

Warehouse 72 Restaurant & Bar

Slated to open in mid-July, the property will also feature Warehouse 72 Restaurant & Bar, which will present a menu that captures the essence of Orange County. Under the guidance of local culinary expert Doug Pak and executed by Executive Chef Jaime Salazar, the restaurant will offer a blend of innovative and traditional American fare. The modern design will deliver an elevated ambiance that extends to an outdoor terrace overlooking the courtyard and pool.
