Hyatt is a favorite hotel chain among many travelers for a reason. It doesn’t matter what your vacation style is, whether you prefer mountains or beaches, there’s a Hyatt property for every taste and budget.
There are a bunch of brands under the Hyatt umbrella, from city escapes to all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean to boutique beachfront hotels on the exotic island of Mauritius.
Let’s take a look at 10 Hyatt properties that will make for an amazing beach getaway.
We don’t have to travel to a foreign country to enjoy a beautiful beach at one of many beachfront Hyatt properties. The islands of Hawaii offer a much-needed break from the mundane. You can enjoy amazing beaches, stunning volcanoes and unforgettable Hawaiian culture. So go and have some fun in the sun without breaking out the passport.
Hawaii is also a notoriously expensive destination, so using points instead of cash is a great way to save on your dream vacation.
Andaz Maui at Wailea Resort, Wailea, Hawaii
Andaz Maui is a luxury hotel set on 15 beachfront acres. You can enjoy farm-to-table dining, direct access to Mokapu Beach and spacious rooms with tropical views. Maui is one of the most beautiful islands in the world where you can bike down the Haleakala volcano after seeing the sunrise and enjoy a surfing lesson in the afternoon, all on the same day.
This resort is a category 7 property and costs 30,000 points/night. Cash rates are sky-high and usually start at $650/night.
Hyatt Hotels – Mexico
Want a quick getaway, a chance to play in the waves and enjoy a beautiful beach without spending too much time planning your trip? Then one of Hyatt’s all-inclusive resorts in Mexico might be just what you need.
Hyatt has three great all-inclusive properties in Mexico, each offering a different experience. Hyatt’s all-inclusive Zilara adults-only resorts are perfect for a couples getaway, and the Ziva family-friendly properties have something for the whole family.
Hyatt Ziva Cancun and Hyatt Zilara Cancun, Cancun, Mexico
Both the Ziva and the Zilara have multiple restaurants, bars and lounges that offer everything from craft cocktails to international cuisine. A lot of different activities are also included, so all you need to do is relax and enjoy the beautiful weather and the beauty of the Caribbean Sea.
Both properties cost 25,000 points for two people and that includes everything, all food, drinks and activities. The cash prices start at over $300 and go as high as $700 during the peak season.
Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta
Puerto Vallarta has an international airport with a decent number of non-stop flights from the U.S. and Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta is about a 20-minute cab ride from the airport. The natural beauty of Mexico’s west coast will surprise you, with its juxtaposition of lush, green mountains and the Pacific Ocean creating stunning scenery.
All food, drinks and activities at this all-inclusive resort are included, so all you need to do is show up. I stayed at this resort a couple of years ago and successfully ate my weight in fresh guacamole. I guarantee you, after spending even just a couple of days there, you’ll feel refreshed, re-energized and absolutely in love with the food and the stunning scenery.
All of this fun and food for just 20,000 points for two people when cash rates can be $400+ in high season. What’s not to love?
Hyatt Hotels – The Caribbean
Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa and Casino, Palm Beach, Aruba
This beachfront resort on the sunny island of Aruba has a new adults-only pool, beautiful spa and is minutes away from shopping and dining. You can spend time on the famous Palm Beach, partake in many water sports activities, take a jeep tour of Aruba’s majestic Arikok National Park or play a round of golf.
This is a category 6 hotel that you can book with 25,000 points. The cash rates in high season, i.e. when it’s cold and snowing in most of North America, approach $600.
French Coco, Tartane, Martinique
Martinique is a tiny exquisite (and exclusive) island located just north of Saint Lucia. It doesn’t have any of the big chain hotels but lucky for us there’s a Small Luxury Hotels (SLH) property. French Coco is a boutique hotel with just 17 suites located on the border with the nature reserve of the Caravelle Peninsula.
Martinique is really one of a kind. This lush tropical island with a French flair offers privacy – there are no major tourist attractions, no crowded mega-resorts and no cruise ship passengers. It’s just you, lush green tropics and the crystal clear blue waters of the Caribbean.
This elegant and exclusive property is a category 7 hotel that can be booked with 30,000 points. Cash prices hover in the $600 range.
Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, Nassau, The Bahamas
The Bahamas need no introduction, as the islands are practically synonymous with crystal clear blue water, white sand beaches and beautiful weather. Grand Hyatt Baha Mar is a beachfront resort with access to a stunning golf course, tennis facilities, six pools, water sports like snorkeling and kayaking, and a unique wildlife sanctuary.
There’s also a water park for kids and shopping and a casino for the parents. Keep in mind that this is a mega-resort, which could be a plus or a minus, depending on your preferred vacation style.
As an award category 5, this resort will set you back 20,000 points/night. The cash price during high season can be as high as $600, so using points could be a great deal!
Costa Rica needs no introduction. There are so many activities for the whole family to enjoy, from hiking volcanoes to horseback riding to surfing. Do you like coffee? Some of the world’s best coffee varieties grow in Costa Rica, so you can enjoy a visit to a coffee growing plantation and many great cups of joe.
Andaz Costa Rica Resort at Peninsula Papagayo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica
This Andaz resort has three beaches, world-class golf, an extensive activity program and great food within a pristine 1,400-acre private peninsula. This is one of the most popular properties for the Hyatt loyalists, so award space might be tough to find. But if you have any flexibility with your travel dates and you book early, you’ll be able to book this great resort with points.
This is a category 5 hotel and you’ll need 20,000 points a night. Cash rates in high season start at $500 and up.
Mauritius is a tiny island in the Indian Ocean, about 1,200 miles off the coast of Africa. The island is an embodiment of a tropical paradise with a lush green interior and miles of palm-fringed white sand beaches. The crystal clear blue waters are perfect for diving, snorkeling and swimming. It’s not an easy place to get to, but this is definitely a very special, once in a lifetime trip.
Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Wellness Resort, Bel Ombre, Mauritius
For a taste of an exotic and something truly unique, head over to Heritage Le Telfair resort. A converted 19th-century colonial mansion, the resort is located on a protected nature reserve. The plantation-style hotel offers guided nature walks and access to an 18-hole championship golf course.
If lounging on the beach all day isn’t enough, the hotel offers a wide array of activities, such as flower arranging, cooking, fitness, wellness, and waterspouts. And there’s of course the pristine private golf course.
This is a category 6 hotel and you’ll need 25,000 points for your room in paradise. Cash rates in high season top $1000, so if you are trying to escape the cold, grey winters of the northern hemisphere, this is a great deal.
Continuing with our theme of exotic and out of the way places, Perth and the west coast of Australia aren’t well-known destinations among American travelers. It’s hard to compete with Sydney and the Great Barrier Reef, but Australia’s striking west coast is definitely worth exploring.
Smiths Beach Resort, Yallingup, Western Australia
Smith Beach Resort is the ultimate beachside escape on the edge of the Australian continent. This eco-friendly resort is located in the national park on the stunning coastline, just a short distance away from spectacular caves and tall-tree forest. You’ll feel the world away but you are just a short drive away from many world-class boutique wineries and breweries.
Perfect for a family or couples vacation, this category 6 property can be booked with 25,000 points. Award space could be tough to find but with cash rates that start at $1,200, it’s well worth the effort.
