Here are all the ways to earn Hyatt points.

You can transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Hyatt at a 1:1 ratio if you have the Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase Ink Plus, or (no longer offered) Chase Ink Bold card.

If you have the Chase Freedom or Chase Ink Cash cards, you can combine your points and transfer them to Hyatt as long as you have 1 of the other cards!

And the Chase Freedom has rotating 5X points categories that include everyday purchases at department stores or dining out.  And through December 31, 2015, you can earn up to 15,000 bonus Chase Ultimate Rewards points shopping at Amazon.

Here’s my review of the Chase Sapphire Preferred.  It’s the #1 card I recommend for folks to new to our miles & points hobby.  And here’s why Chase Ultimate Rewards points are my favorite type of points!

The bonus of 50,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points is nearly enough for 2 to 4 award nights at Hyatt’s top hotels (easily worth $1,000 or more)!

Another way to stay at these top Hyatt hotels is to use the 2 free night certificates that come with the Chase Hyatt card.

5 Luxurious Hyatt Hotels in Asia and Australia That Make Great Award Stays

Hyatt hotels include AndazGrand HyattHyatt, Hyatt CentricHyatt PlaceHyatt RegencyHyatt ResortsHyatt House, and Park Hyatt brand hotels.

I use Hotel Hustle to find hotels because it shows you how many points you’ll need for your specific travel dates, and if award nights are available!

AwardMapper is another handy tool.

I’ve personally stayed at 3 of these 5 hotels, but the other 2 are on my list!  Let me know if you’ve had an experience with any of them!

Note:  The prices in these examples are based on travel in April 2016.

1.   Park Hyatt Goa Resort and Spa

Emily and I had a great time relaxing at the 5-star Park Hyatt Goa Resort and Spa in India.  And folks on TripAdvisor like the beach, views, and ambiance of this hotel, too!

Rates here start at ~$172 with taxes or 15,000 Hyatt points per night.

There are several restaurants to enjoy, including a few with Indian cuisine (the spicier the better!).  And there’s Camp Hyatt with lots of activities for the kids.

The grounds are spread out over 45 acres, so there’s plenty to see and explore, including lagoons and lots of gorgeous tropical scenery.

When you meet the minimum spending requirements on the Chase Sapphire Preferred card, you’ll have at least 54,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points.  And, you can earn 5,000 more points when you add an authorized user, for a total of 59,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points.

That’s almost enough for 4 nights here, which saves you close to $800.  Park Hyatt hotels are Hyatt’s top luxury brand, so this is a good deal!

2.   Grand Hyatt Macau

The Grand Hyatt Macau is located in South China in the “City of Dreams” complex, which is a bit like Las Vegas!  Emily and I stayed here and enjoyed the interesting sights and shopping, and of course the food!

Shop, Try Your Luck, or Relax by the Pool That’s Heated Year-Round

You can stay inside the complex to swim in the heated pool or gamble, or head out to hike along the beach at nearby Coloane Island.

Nights here cost ~$343 after taxes and fees, or 20,000 Hyatt points per night.

Again, you’ll earn 54,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after you complete the minimum spending and another 5,000 points for adding an authorized user.  59,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points is nearly enough for 3 nights here, which is worth ~$1,029!

3.   Grand Hyatt Shanghai

Nights at the Grand Hyatt Shanghai cost ~$244 after taxes or 15,000 Hyatt points per night.  Save ~$732 on 3 nights here with the sign-up bonus from the Chase Sapphire Preferred and have 5,000 points left over for more Big Travel with Small Money.  In fact, it’s enough for an award night at a Hyatt Category 1 hotel!

This hotel is on my dream list!

4.   Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills

Nightly rates at the Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills start at ~$810 or 25,000 Hyatt points per night.  So the sign-up bonus from the Chase Sapphire Preferred or Chase Hyatt card would be worth over ~$1,600 if you used your points or award certificates here for 2 nights!

  1. $810 a night for the Andaz? Must be a mistake.

  2. I’ve been looking at the Andaz Tokyo for a trip coming up in January and the nightly rates are only $328 right now and $400 normally. less than half of what you listed in the post.

  3. @Anthony @swong – I picked random dates for the post, but checked again to be sure.

    The nights of April 8th and April 15th are $653 as a Standard Rate, and the total is over $800 with taxes, fees, and service charges.

    Prices can vary a lot based on the season. April is in the middle of Japan’s cherry blossom season, so perhaps that’s why.

    As always, run the numbers to make sure you’re getting the best deal when you redeem your points!

    Thanks to you both for reading and commenting!

  4. Thanks for clarifying. Yes, that would surely make the difference! 😉

    Your post actually reminded me of the Andaz for a trip during that time of year for which I had booked a few nights at the Park Hyatt and a night at the Grand Hyatt. I called to see if the free night certificate I was using for the GH could be used at the Andaz and apparently those certificates won’t work, even if there are standard rooms available using points. Is this normal for properties to issue a certain number of rooms for use with the free night awards vs points redemptions?

    Either way, a free night at either location is nothing to cry over.

  5. @Anthony – In my experience, if Standard Rooms are available with points, you should be able to book them with your free night certificates.

    Maybe you can try to call back again to double-check? I haven’t heard of anything like this before.

    Good luck getting your award nights! Let me know how it goes!

  6. Brilliant. I called back and spoke with another rep. She informed me that anniversary reward nights are not bookable at Category 6 hotels, but that the free night certificates for the Chase Hyatt signup bonus can be used as long as there is a standard room available. She made the switch. I guess the first rep I spoke with might have thought I was trying to use an anniversary night, which would only work on a Cat 1-4 Hyatt. Pays to hang up and call back sometimes. Thanks for your help!!

  7. @Anthony – Yay! I’m excited for you, and glad it worked out!

    It definitely helps to speak with a different agent sometimes.

    Enjoy Tokyo, and thanks again for reading!
