World of Hyatt is taking its expansion into the all-inclusive space very seriously.

Last November, Hyatt completed its acquisition of Apple Leisure Group. This acquisition includes Apple’s AMR Collection of luxury all-inclusive properties, spanning brands like Secrets, Dreams and Sunscape, among others.

Starting yesterday (4 April), six AMR Collection properties in Cancun are bookable with World of Hyatt points, and members can earn points on paid stays at these properties. Hyatt told TPG that the remaining 50-plus AMR Collection properties in the Americas will join Word of Hyatt on 9 May, 2022, while European AMR properties will join World of Hyatt in the coming months.

In addition, Hyatt has unveiled a new award chart for all-inclusive properties. Let’s look at these changes and what they mean for Hyatt loyalists.

Six AMR Collection properties in Cancun will join World of Hyatt today. These include:

  • 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.

At these properties, you can earn and redeem World of Hyatt points like you would at any other Hyatt property. The same will go for other AMR Collection properties once they are added to World of Hyatt, giving members more options for leisure travel around the globe. As mentioned, the remaining AMR Collection properties in the Americas will join World of Hyatt on 9 May, while European properties will join later in the year.

Including Hyatt’s existing Ziva and Zilara brands, World of Hyatt members will soon have nine all-inclusive brands to choose from. AMR Collection brands include Secrets Resorts & Spas, Dreams Resorts & Spas, Breathless Resorts & Spas, Zoëtry Wellness & Spa Resorts, Alua Hotels & Resorts, Sunscape Resorts & Spas as well as the upcoming Vivid Hotel & Resorts. There are more than 100 AMR Collection all-inclusive properties globally.

With so many new all-inclusive properties joining World of Hyatt, the loyalty program has unveiled a new all-inclusive award chart.

Previously, the program priced all Ziva and Zilara properties individually. Now, all-inclusive properties will be assigned a Category from A to F.

Category A standard rooms start at 12,000 points per night on off-peak dates and Category F properties top out at 58,000 points per night on peak dates. These prices include single or double occupancy, with more guests requiring more points.

Here’s a look at Hyatt’s new all-inclusive award chart:

This new all-inclusive award chart roughly aligns with Hyatt’s standard award chart. Pricing for Category A to E all-inclusive properties is identical to Category 4 to 8 properties. However, Category F is the highest we’ve seen for any Hyatt award, with standard rates clocking in at 50,000 points per night. We hope Category F is reserved only for the highest-end AMR Collection properties.

The just-added Cancun properties will price as follows:

  • Secrets Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort – Category C.
  • Secrets The Vine Cancun – Category C.
  • Dreams Natura Resort & Spa – Category B.
  • Dreams Sapphire Resort & Spa – Category B.
  • Dreams Playa Mujeres Golf & Spa Resort – Category C.
  • Zoëtry Paraiso de la Bonita Riviera Maya – Category C.

All existing Ziva and Zilara properties will remain in their current pricing bands, except for one. The Ziva Puerto Vallarta previously cost 20,000 points per night on standard nights. However, it now shows as a Category C property, with rates standard nights pricing at 25,000 points.

This leaves the Ziva Los Cabos as the only Category B property in the Ziva family. TPG has reached out to Hyatt to confirm this change.

Bottom line

It’s great to see Hyatt’s acquisition of Apple Leisure Group move forward with the first batch of AMR Collection properties joining World of Hyatt. We’re also happy to see Hyatt keep standard award charts for all-inclusive properties, especially as other loyalty programs move toward dynamic pricing.

We’ll keep you posted as more AMR properties join World of Hyatt over the coming months, including when we have a date for European AMR properties to join the World of Hyatt portfolio.
