Hyatt all-inclusive resorts using points can be a great redemption. Whether you are booking with points earned from one of the Hyatt credit cards or a Chase card that earns Ultimate Rewards, you are bound to get good value.
There are two Hyatt credit cards, the personal World of Hyatt Credit Card and also the World of Hyatt Business Credit Card.
Several Chase credit cards earn Ultimate Rewards. These include:
You can transfer your Chase Ultimate Rewards to select partners, and Hyatt is one of them. It is one of our favorite ways to use those points because your points can go far with Hyatt and its low-priced award chart. We loved the Hyatt Ziva Cancun and Hyatt Zilara Cancun, but there are others. Let’s go over them.
Note: These were the points redemptions at the time of posting. Redemptions fluctuate so your mileage may vary.
The Hyatt Ziva Resorts are for people of all ages. We loved the Ziva Cancun so much that we are taking Alex’s children next June. Even though we went for our first time without children, it is a great place for adults-only too. You can certainly get plenty of quiet time even if you are at a family-oriented place.
Locations of Ziva resorts include:
The Cabo and Puerto Vallarta Ziva resorts will cost 20K points per night at standard pricing. The other Ziva resorts will cost you 25K points a night. This includes food and drinks for two people. Each additional person is 10K/12.5K points a night, respectively. You also have the option to pay cash for your extra person instead of points- contact the hotel for details on that.
Zilara resorts are Hyatt’s adults-only resorts. We stayed at the Cancun Zilara, and we actually preferred the Ziva. The Jamaica and Dominican Republic Ziva and Zilara resorts are right next to each other, so as an adult, you can go back and forth between the two properties. The Cancun locations are not right next to each other, so you can’t bounce back and forth.
Locations of Zilara resorts include:
These resorts will cost you 25,000 Hyatt points a night during standard pricing- that is for two people.
Not only are meals included at the Zilara and Ziva resorts but also daily activities, nightly entertainment, and great fitness facilities.
Hyatt Miraval Resorts are all all-inclusive resorts that can be booked with Hyatt points. But you will not be booking them for 25,000 points a night. They are more expensive. They are high-end spa-like resorts that are dedicated to wellness and balance. Located in three different cities, they are true experiences, and the people who go there talk about them forever. These are the three Miraval Resorts by Hyatt:
The best time to book a stay at one of these resorts is when they have a BOGO promotion. These are for award stays. Typically, an award stay for one person is 45,000 Hyatt points a night and 20,000 points for another person in the same room. If you can catch a BOGO, it makes it so much more affordable. Another thing to note- you will need to call to book this; it can’t be done online.
Your meals and many activities are included with your stay. Award stays also come with a $175 per person per night credit on normal award stays. With the BOGO stays, it only applies to the night that isn’t free. Those credits can be used for massages, private classes, and select activities that aren’t complimentary.
This is definitely on my radar. I plan to use some of my Hyatt points to check out this zen-like experience at Miraval.
This group of new all-inclusive hotels was added in 2022. There are 50 great new additions to this collection that, include Breathless Resorts and Spas, Dreams Resorts and Spas, Secrets Resorts and Spas, Sunscape Resorts and Spas, and Zoetry Resorts and Spas. I love the fact that these five brands increase the ability to earn a Hyatt Brand Explorer Award. I look forward to trying some of these.
Hyatt has a line of some pretty amazing all-inclusive resorts. Being able to use Chase Ultimate Rewards to transfer to Hyatt makes it so much easier to stay at several of them. I can’t wait to go to some more of them because the Hyatt all-inclusive resorts using points that I stayed at were worth every cent, I mean points!
