Hyatt is making a huge move in the very popular all-inclusive resort space by rolling out over 100 such properties, in phases. These resorts will all be bookable with points via their own all-inclusive award chart. Here is more about this big move.
Hyatt’s Big Move with All-Inclusive Resorts
All-inclusive resorts can be amazing – or they can be not so great. It all depends on the brand that you are booking with and Hyatt has achieved a great reputation with travelers around the world so this is certainly exciting to see.
These seven brands are Zoëtry Wellness Spa & Resorts, Secrets Resorts & Spas, Breathless Resorts & Spas, Dreams Resorts & Spas, Vivid Hotels & Resorts, Alua Hotels & Resorts, Sunscape Resorts & Spas.
While enjoying local fare at your destination can always be an exciting part of the adventure, every all-inclusive resort we have been to offers that same kind of local fare plus more right where you are staying. This helps take the guess work out of the best places to experience your destination – and you are getting it all right in with your nightly rate!
Hyatt is making this big move with seven brands within the AMR collection and they are starting with six resorts as of yesterday, all in the Cancun area of Mexico. Those properties are:
- Secrets Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort
- Secrets The Vine Cancun
- Dreams Natura Resort & Spa
- Dreams Sapphire Resort & Spa
- Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort
- Zoëtry Paraiso de la Bonita Riviera Maya
But, Hyatt promises that this is just the beginning with over 50 Americas resorts joining the loyalty program on May 9.
We know for sure that there will be more of these resorts opening in Mexico as well as Greece and Spain. This is truly exciting news since both of these locations offer some amazing food choices anyway as well as very desirable vacation destinations.
New Hyatt Award Chart for All-Inclusive Resorts
Hyatt is not going to be slotting these resorts into the current Category 1 – 8 award chart. Instead, they are going with a Category A – F chart. This will include Standard Room, Standard Suite, and Premium Suite award redemptions.
Here is what that looks like:
You can view the rest of the award chart at this link here. There you will find Club, Standard Suite, Premium Suite, and the cost for additional people beyond 2. There is a maximum of 4 people per room.
So, the all-inclusive Hyatt resorts will range from 12,000 points per night at a Category A during off-peak all the way up to 115,000 points for a Category F during peak times. And there are a lot of points in the middle!
Hyatt used to be dismissed for having a small global footprint. While they still cannot compete with Marriott or IHG, they have made strategic moves over the past few years that have given their members even more choices of unique destinations and properties. I love the options they provide and look forward to seeing the rest of these resorts!
