My Favorite Ways To Redeem Hyatt Points (Asia & Australia)

by Anna

Just like airlines, hotel award charts also have their sweet spots. I love Hyatt hotels because of their very reasonable redemption rates.

The award chart is simple and straightforward, and there are no peak and off peak rates (I am looking at you, Marriott). And unlike Hilton, they don’t hide the award chart and don’t have dynamic pricing.

I previously covered Hyatt sweet spots in North America, Caribbean, Central America, and South America along with Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. Now, let’s take a look at some awesome redemptions in Asia and Australia.

The Hyatt Sweet Spots To Take Advantage Of

I found a few really exceptional Hyatt redemptions or “sweet spots” in different regions of the world. This list is by no means exhaustive, but are just some of my favorites.

You can stay at expensive cities like Seattle and Vancouver for as little as 12,000 points per night. In London, where pretty much all decent hotels are either expensive or very expensive, it’s possible to find a room at the fabulous Andaz London Liverpool Street for 20,000 points per night (cash rates go up to $700/night). And Hyatt all-inclusive resorts are only 20,000-25,000 points per night.

When you redeem Hyatt points, you don’t need to pay taxes and resort fees. If you are paying cash, these extra charges can add $50 or more to the cost of your hotel room.

And the program keeps getting better and better. With the addition of Small Luxury Hotels, Thompson Hotels, Alila, and Joie de Vivre brands, there are even more great ways to redeem your World of Hyatt points.

How To Earn Hyatt Points

It’s fairly easy to earn Hyatt points. A new World of Hyatt Credit Card comes with a generous 50,000 bonus points, enough  to cover a few nights at some really great hotels. The card also comes with a free night each card anniversary that can be used at Hyatt properties up to Category 4.

Chase Ultimate Rewards points, earned through cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred and Chase Sapphire Reserve, transfer instantly to World of Hyatt.

Redeem Hyatt Points: Asia Sweet Spots

China

  • Park Hyatt Hangzhou – Category 4 (15,000 points)

Vietnam

  • Park Hyatt Saigon, Ho Chi Minh City – Category 4 (15,000 points).
    The cash rates at this beautiful property start around $350, so this is an incredible redemption. Park Hyatt is Hyatt’s top brand, you can’t get a better experience than at Park Hyatt. I stayed at this beautiful hotel and the rooms, service, and pool were amazing. Point Me contributor Shelli also stayed in a suite.

Cambodia

  • Park Hyatt Siem Reap – Category 3 (12,000 points). Great place to spend a couple of nights on your way to Angkor Wat.

Singapore

  • Grand Hyatt Singapore –  Category 5 (20,000 points)
    Considering that rates at this hotel hover around $300 to 400 per night, this is a great redemption. In general, hotels in Singapore aren’t cheap, so this might be a good option if you prefer to stay at Hyatt hotels. Point Me contributor Shelli stayed at a suite at this property.

Bali

  • Grand Hyatt Bali – Category 2 (8,000 points).
    Bali has many beautiful resorts, and Grand Hyatt Bali is definitely one them.
  • Hyatt Regency Bali – Category 2 (8,000 points).

Best Hyatt points redemptions Park Hyatt

Park Hyatt Hyderabad

  • Park Hyatt Hyderabad – Category 2 (8,000 points).
    This has to be one of the best overall values for Hyatt’s top-line hotels. Bask in 5-star luxury for the price of an airport Hyatt.
  • Park Hyatt Chennai – Category 1 (5,000 points).

Kuala Lumpur

Nepal

  • Hyatt Regency Kathmandu – Category 1 (5,000 points). Five star luxury for 5,000 points sounds too good to be true, but it’s not. This property gets consistently good reviews, and doesn’t this building look absolutely majestic?

Japan

  • Park Hyatt Tokyo – Category 7 (30,000 points).
    I hesitated a bit about putting this hotel on the list of “sweet spots.” 30,000 points a night is a lot of points but cash rates at this hotel fluctuate between $300 and $650, so it might be considered a “sweet spot” during high season. And of course there’s Lost in Translation movie.

  • Hyatt Regency Seragaki Island, Okinawa Category 4 – 15,000 points.
    I’ve stayed at this hotel recently on my around the world trip, and I couldn’t believe it’s “just” a Regency, it felt like Park Hyatt. Luxurious, modern, excellent service — and all for 15,000 points.

  • Park Hyatt Sydney – Category 7 (30,000 points)
    It’s definitely not a points bargain but the cash rates for Park Hyatt Sydney hover at around $1000/night. I’ve stayed at this hotel and the location, the service, the rooms, and the view were exceptional.

Not a single hotel in Thailand? When the Eragon Hyatt in Bangkok is a Class 3 and you are listing Class 7 as sweet spots? Guess you pick up Hyatt points in bigger amounts than me.
