The Hyatt Regency Newport Hotel and Spa has undergone $35 million worth of renovations to maximize the seaside property’s fantastic views. The updated rooms mirror the ocean with relaxing beachy hues, and the theme continues throughout the hotel with watery spirals echoed in the spa and pool windows and the hotel’s lighting and carpeting.  From years past to years ahead, the Hyatt Regency Newport Hotel and Spa continues its annual clambake for guests.  The annual feast features Executive Chef Martin Quinn unveiling wooden trays of lobster, corn, potatoes, steamers and mussels amid a distinctively smoky, salty scented whirl of steam.  The strong fragrance of the seafood and the earthy aroma of baked rock seaweed fill the air as the traditional Wampanoag Indian clambake is disassembled, of which is a true New England experience.  New England lobster bake originated with the Wampanoag Indian tribe in the 1700s. The three-hour long process started with rocks heated for an hour and half over burning wood. As the embers of the wood burn away, the rocks are covered with wet rock seaweed, which gives up its moisture as the pods burst on the sizzling hot rocks.  Non-seafood lovers also have several options that are served along with the clambake including steaks, grilled chicken, grilled veggies and others.  The feast is capped off with peach cobbler served with vanilla ice cream.    

Although the clambake is only available to groups this summer, the Windward Restaurant, one of three dining venues at the hotel that are open to the public, offers a complete New England style seafood menu, including the Aquidneck clam chowder, which won second place at 2010’s chowder festival in Newport, RI.  Also, the Windward offers a traditional New England seafood feast featuring a sweet 1 1/4-lb lobster with drawn butter, steamers, shrimp, haddock and cod.  The tapas menu also features several seafood options such as the calamari, grilled artichoke and crab potato pancakes, Atlantic lobster medallions and Malpaque oysters.  Other restaurants include; the newly created Five33 Lounge, adjacent to the lobby and outdoor deck offers signature drinks and lighter fare, and the Bay restaurant, serving-up summertime specialty drinks.     

Other resort notables:

The Stillwater Spa was completely redesigned and offers spa treatments on the deck overlooking Newport harbor.   An old parking area at the back of the property was demolished in order to create a lush, green-lawn where volleyball and yoga are common activities. A gas fireplace on the patio also offers families plenty of cooking options over the cozy seaside fire.   
For guests who prefer to spend more time on the property enjoying the island hotel’s salt-water outdoor pool and other amenities, a recently hired activities director is continously arranging activities such as watercolor painting classes, outdoor yoga and movie nights on the great lawn.

The Hyatt Regency Newport Hotel and Spa is pet friendly.

There are two Hyatt resorts in Newport area serving as many as 75 clambakes a year starting in April and ending as Autumn begins to yield to winter in early November.
