Because Southwest will soon begin flying to Hawaii, I’ve been researching some of the best hotels I can stay in using points.  Luckily, there are many great hotel credit cards that can help you earn points toward free stays too!  Most of us on the Million Mile Secrets team stay for free at hotels just by redeeming points!  

Hyatt, which is my favorite hotel chain, has quite a few hotels in Hawaii!  I love how I can easily transfer my Chase Ultimate Rewards points directly to Hyatt to book a free stay.  I also love earning Hyatt points directly with The World of Hyatt Credit Card.

I Love Being on Island Time and Using Chase Ultimate Rewards Points to Book Free Hyatt Hotel Stays in Hawaii!

Here are 3 amazing Hyatt hotels in Hawaii you can stay at for free by transferring Chase Ultimate Rewards points to your Hyatt account!  Don’t forget, you NEVER pay resort fees when using Hyatt points for an award stay! 

1.   Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa

I stayed at this hotel several years ago and had an amazing time!  The Hyatt Regency Maui Resort and Spa has plenty of other 5-star reviews from their guests.  Folks love having 40+ acres on renowned Ka’anapali Beach.  We attended a luau that is held at the resort.

You Can Transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards Points to Hyatt for a Stay at the Hyatt Regency Maui, Like I Did!

The hotel is a short walk toWhalers Village, where you can do some shopping or eat dinner while watching the sunset.  With beaches and pools galore, this hotel is truly an island getaway.

Rooms here can go for ~$450 a night or you could pay 20,000 Hyatt points per night.  

The Ink Business Preferred℠ Credit Card is a great card to get free nights at this hotel.  When you sign-up for this card, you can earn 80,000 Chase Ultimate Rewards points after spending $5,000 on purchases in the first 3 months from account opening.  This means you can use your points to stay at the Hyatt Regency Maui for four nights.

2.   Hyatt Place Waikiki Beach

The Hyatt Place Waikiki Beach is within walking distance of the beach and the Honolulu Zoo.  It’s just a short drive away from the North Shore and Kualoa Ranch, where we went zip lining and saw where Jurassic Park was filmed!

A View From a Room at the Hyatt Place Waikiki. Earning the Sign-Up Bonus on The World of Hyatt Credit Card Can Get You Enough Points for 5 Free Nights at This Hotel!

This hotel is the cheapest on this list because you only need 12,000 points per night to stay!

When you use The World of Hyatt Credit Card, you can earn up to 60,000 bonus Hyatt points after meeting tiered minimum spending requirements.  You’ll earn:

  • 40,000 bonus Hyatt points after you spend $3,000 on purchases in the first 3 months of opening your account
  • Another 20,000 bonus Hyatt points after you spend an additional $3,000 on purchases within the first 6 months of opening your account

3.   Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa

Kauai is the most underrated island of Hawaii.  It’s also the most rustic of the 3 islands that I’ve been to (Oahu, Maui, and Kauai).  This island has everything the other islands have, including white sand beaches, and plenty of hiking and exploring in the forests!  Plus, Kauai is generally less crowded!  

The Grand Hyatt Kauai Is an Impressive Hotel With Stunning Views!

Rooms at this hotel can run for as much as ~$850 a night!  But you can stay completely free with 25,000 Hyatt points a night instead.

This resort has a lot of 5-star reviews.  Folks love the pools, grounds, and ambiance.  With The World of Hyatt Credit Cardyou can get two nights using the sign-up bonus points!

Grand Hyatt Kauai is extremely nice. The Hyatt Place Waikiki is a dump. It’s definitely not up to the standard of the Hyatt Place brand… (PS: Waikiki is a terrible representation of Hawaii. I’d recommend staying elsewhere if you’re looking for nice beaches and relaxation)

Author

Thanks for the tips!

Just booked the Hyatt resort on Maui last week free for a week thanks to your earlier tips for signing up for the Chase ink card. Love that card and it’s benefits. I didn’t realize I shouldn’t have to pay a resort fee so now im off to research that. Thanks!

Author

That’s great to hear! I have the Chase Ink card as well. Have a great trip!

Agree that the Hyatt Regency Maui is a few miles from Lahaina town center.

Stayed at the Hyatt Place Waikiki in 2017. Nice hotel for the points but it isn’t on the water.

Probably the best use of Hyatt points would be at the Hyatt Residences on Maui, next door to the Regency. Stayed there last year in a 1-BR oceanfront condo for 30K points per night. Very limited availability but those rooms would be about $1200 per night with taxes and fees.

Thanks for the tips! The Hyatt Residences sound amazing. I love 1 bedroom hotel rooms since having my daughter (she goes to bed early).

Love the Hyatt in Kauai. Beautiful facilities including a saltwater lagoon that you can lounge in or around. The pool has a long meandering lazy river that is very popular, but I preferred the lagoon. And, of course, the beach is right there. I would definitely love to stay there again! With hyatt points, definitely worthwhile going back.

Lahaina is no where close to being a short walk from Hyatt Regency Maui. You should stay there sometime if you are going to blog “with knowledge” about it.

Agree, Lahaina is not a short walk from Hyatt Regency Maui. They might be confused with Whalers Village which is walkable and also offers some nice shopping, dining and sunsets

Author

Yes, that’s right! I was thinking of Whaler’s Village. 🙂

Sorry, but I believe the view you cite as being from the Hyatt Place Waikiki is really from the Hyatt Regency Waikiki. I stayed at the Hyatt Place earlier this year. Nice property at a great award level, but it’s not along the water like the Regency is.

I see that you changed the pic for the Hyatt Place. So, my comment no longer applies.
