Top 5 Expensive Hyatt Hotels
Link: Hyatt Award Chart
Staying at a luxurious (and otherwise expensive!) hotel can be a fun way to splurge for a lifelong memory or a special occasion. And it can also be fun to set a travel goal, then collect enough points for free nights.
That said, if you want to make the most of your credit card rewards, here are suggestions about how to get a LOT of value with your Hyatt points or Hyatt free night certificates from cards like the Chase Hyatt card.
If you’re looking at a Hyatt hotel that costs over $500 per night, it is in the top 20 most expensive Hyatt hotels around the world. And if it’s at least over $300 a night, it’s more expensive than 90% of Hyatt hotels.
1. Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa
The Maldives is on a lot of folks’ dream vacation list, and for good reason! With the crystal blue waters and white sand beaches, what more could you ask for? Emily and I certainly enjoyed our vacation there a few years ago with our families!
It gets almost 5 stars on TripAdvisor. Reviewers love the hotel’s great service and food, and the fact that it’s surrounded by pristine water that’s great for diving and snorkeling!
Nights here in April 2017, cost ~$1,270 NOT including taxes and resort fees, that add up to ~$301. Or 25,000 Hyatt points. And you will NOT have to pay any taxes or resort fees when using Hyatt points.
But be aware, because this exclusive hotel is located on a private island, you’ll have to pay a ~$520 fee for a flight and boat ride to access the island!
2. Park Hyatt New York
I found nights at the Hyatt Category 7 hotel in April 2017, for ~$1,122. So a 2-night weekend stay would cost you well over ~$2,000!
Or you could use 60,000 Hyatt points (30,000 Hyatt points per night X 2) or the free night certificates from the Chase Hyatt card, and save lots of money.
Million Mile Secrets team member Jasmin stayed here last spring, and highly recommends the breakfast. Especially the duck confit hash!
3. Park Hyatt St. Kitts
The Park Hyatt St. Kitts is set to open in the Spring of 2017, and they’re taking reservations for dates after March 1, 2017. So if you want to plan and save for a luxurious vacation in the Caribbean, this hotel would be a fantastic option!
I found rooms at this beautiful Hyatt Category 7 hotel in July 2017, from ~$450 plus $100 in taxes and service charges per night up to ~$1,300 per night. So using 30,000 Hyatt points for a free night (or two!) would definitely be worth it! Especially because your Hyatt points cover the cost of the room AND any taxes and service charges.
4. Park Hyatt Paris – Vendôme
Emily and I enjoyed the large Park Suite and the hotel’s central location. And other reviewers rave about the hotel’s knowledgeable concierge, great restaurants, and friendly staff.
I found rooms in April 2017, for ~$856+ per night. And rooms will often go for ~$1,000+ per night!
But instead of paying cash, you could use 30,000 Hyatt points for a free night and save hundreds (or thousands!) of dollars.
5. Park Hyatt Sydney
I stayed at the beautiful Park Hyatt Sydney during a trip to Australia for my mom’s birthday and loved it! It has fantastic views of the famous Sydney Opera House and I enjoyed the breakfast there too.
It also gets great reviews on TripAdvisor for its fantastic location and friendly, helpful staff.
Nights here in April 2017, cost ~$755 or 30,000 Hyatt points. And I’m certainly happy to use 30,000 Hyatt points to save over $750! Because that’s definitely getting Big Travel with Small Money. 😉
All of these hotels cost over $500 per night and would be a great use of points for a once in a lifetime experience!

With the Chase Hyatt card, you’ll earn 2 free night certificates after spending $2,000 within 3 months of account opening. And 5,000 bonus Hyatt points when you add an authorized user and make a purchase within the same timeframe.
This card can save you lots of money, because you can use the 2 free nights at expensive Hyatt hotels, like those on this list, that would otherwise cost hundreds of dollars.
Or you could earn Chase Ultimate Rewards points with cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred, Sapphire Reserve, Ink Business Preferred, or Ink Plus (no longer available). Then transfer those points to Hyatt points at a 1:1 ratio.
The Chase Sapphire Reserve, for example, has a 100,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards point sign-up bonus after meeting minimum spending requirements. That’s enough for 3 free nights at any of the hotels on this list!
You can use points and free night certificates at the most expensive Hyatt hotels in the world. And save ~$1,200+ per night, depending on the hotel you choose!
It can be fun to set a travel goal and save enough points or earn free night certificates for stays at luxurious hotels. Especially if you’re planning a trip for a special occasion. 😉
With the Chase Hyatt card, you’ll earn 2 free nights at ANY Hyatt hotel, and save thousands! Or you can transfer the Chase Ultimate Rewards points you earn from cards like the Chase Sapphire Reserve or Sapphire Preferred to Hyatt points at a 1:1 ratio.
