It’s been a little over a year since Hyatt announced its partnership with Small Luxury Hotels of the World, and after waves of integration in December, January, February and May, the programme is back with a fifth round of additions.

Starting 9 October, World of Hyatt members can earn and redeem Hyatt points at an additional 50 SLH properties, bringing the total number of new resorts added to 260 (and this doesn’t include the eight Thompson Hotels added in March). This, combined with Hyatt’s newest partnership with expedition company Lindblad, makes for a pretty compelling year for Hyatt.

Here are the some of the countries where Hyatt now has a presence (or a greatly-enhanced presence) with this new set of resorts:

All of these newly integrated properties will follow the same earning and redemption scheme as those that have already been added to the World of Hyatt programme. You’ll earn 5 points per dollar spent on paid stays, and if you hold Hyatt elite status, your standard bonuses will apply. However, all World of Hyatt members will enjoy daily complimentary continental breakfast for two, a space-available, one-category upgrade at check-in, and early check-in/late checkout (subject to availability). You can find a full list of the all integrated properties at this link.

Here’s a breakdown of where the new properties fall in Hyatt’s award chart:

  • Category 3 (12,000 points per night): Four hotels
  • Category 4 (15,000 points): Four hotels
  • Category 5 (20,000 points): Nine hotels
  • Category 6 (25,000): 16 hotels
  • Category 7 (30,000 points): 11 hotels
  • Category 8 (40,000 points): Five hotels

Finally, World of Hyatt shared an updated list of the most popular cities for World of Hyatt member bookings at SLH hotels. This time the list is largely the same, though London has once again taken over the top spot.

  1. Rome, Italy (previously London)
  2. London, England (previously Rome)
  3. Venice, Italy (no change)
  4. Shanghai, China (no change)
  5. Santorini, Greece (no change)

Bottom line

Hyatt has really upped its game this year, making strides to compete with much larger chains like Hilton and Marriott across the globe. This newest round of additions adds some fantastic hotels to the portfolio of Hyatt-redeemable properties. Combined with other moves like the purchase of Two Roads Hospitality in 2018, Hyatt is expanding its footprint in a big way.
