INSIDER SECRET: If you don’t have enough Hyatt points for the award stay you want to book, you can instantly transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Hyatt at a 1:1 ratio.

If you’ve been itching for a tropical all-inclusive resort vacation, you’ll be able to earn double elite night credits at Hyatt Ziva & Zilara locations from August 1 to November 23, 2019 — and this deal can be stacked with other Hyatt promotions.

Hyatt Promotions

Double Elite Night Credits at Ziva & Zilara

Promotion dates: August 1 to November 23, 2019

Promotion terms:

  • Must register by October 31, 2019
  • Bonus nights will not be considered promotion so they’ll count toward unlocking rewards tied to elite night requirements like free night certificates and club lounge passes
  • Award stays count
  • Only the room occupied by the member will qualify for the bonus

Good deal or not?

Hyatt Ziva and Zilara are Hyatt’s all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico. Zilara is adults-only and Ziva is more family-friendly. There are locations in:

  • Cancun, Mexico (Ziva & Zilara)
  • Cap Cana, Dominican Republic (Ziva & Zilara) – Opening soon
  • Los Cabos, Mexico (Ziva)
  • Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (Ziva)
  • Rose Hall, Jamaica (Ziva & Zilara)

The award chart for Hyatt’s all-inclusive resorts is a bit different than its standard award chart:

You’ll pay 20,000-25,000 points per night for the first two people and an additional 10,000-12,500 points per person for up to four people per room. If you were already looking for an all-inclusive resort, these are reasonable prices. And if you can earn double elite night credits and possibly stack the deal for the 10% rebate for cardholders (if your travel dates fall into the dates where both promotions are valid) it becomes even more enticing.

Both Ziva & Zilara resort stays will count toward earning a category 1-4 free night certificate through Hyatt’s ongoing brand explorer promotion, where you can earn a free night for every five different Hyatt brands you visit.

Hyatt Cardholders 10% Points Rebate

Under this promotion, eligible Hyatt cardholders will get 10% of their points back on the following Hyatt points redemptions:

  • Free nights
  • Points + cash nights
  • Room upgrades
  • Dining and spa services
  • FIND experiences
  • Exhale classes or spa treatments

Hyatt points redeemed for Avis car rental certificates or points transferred to airline partners are not eligible for the 10% back. To qualify, you need to register by July 15, 2019. If you redeem points for a stay, the stay must be completed by September 2, 2019 in order to receive the rebate.

One nice thing is that the rebate will apply to existing reservations. According to the terms, the points rebate will be automatically deposited into your Hyatt account within six to eight weeks after your points redemption has been completed (although my guess is that your rebate will show up in your account much sooner than that).

This deal works nicely with a current promotion for Hyatt’s Miraval resorts in Arizona and Austin. For points stays at these resorts through August 31, 2019 you’ll get a 50% points rebate. For two people it normally costs 65,000 Hyatt points per night, so with that deal you’d get 32,500 points back per night after completing the stay.

Because you pay the full price up front, however, you will get an additional 10% rebate on that price (6,500 more points back instead of only 3,250 points back). That means your stay will only cost 26,000 Hyatt points a night out of pocket after the rebates. Hyatt has confirmed with me that the 10% rebate will apply to the full price and not the discounted price.

That’s an excellent deal when you consider that each person will also get $175 in resort credits per day (even on points bookings) and Miraval is essentially an upscale all-inclusive resort (with all food and beverages included except alcohol). The resort credit can be used for classes, excursions and spa treatments (lots of classes are free, too).

If you’ve had a bad experience with sub-par food at other all-inclusive resorts you can erase that from your memory. Miraval resorts are not like the others. Each meal is an upscale dining experience. You won’t find a better deal for these resorts than 26,000 points for two people + $350 in resort credits per day ($175 per person). The downside to this deal is that you need to have the full amount of points to book the stay, so for a two-night stay for two people you’d need 130,000 Hyatt points on hand — even though you could get up to 78,000 of those points back.

You can register for the promotion here. If you don’t currently have a Hyatt credit card, you can apply for The World Of Hyatt Credit Card and — as long as you register for the promotion by July 15, 2019 — get the 10% rebate on all stays from July 1 to September 2, 2019. This promotion makes it a good time to get the card because the 10% rebate is a great supplement to the card’s intro bonus of up to 50,000 Hyatt points, which you can earn after spending $6,000 total in the first six months.

Rebates I presume are only for America’s….not good for anywhere else…..which is where I mostly am!

The 10% rebate applies to all the points redemptions mentioned in the post and isn’t limited geographically, but you do need a Hyatt credit card to qualify.

Check the temperature before booking.

Author
Jason Stauffer

yeah, that’s the biggest drawback.

Any tips for booking? Do you have to call to book? The Hyatt website redirects to Miraval, Miraval basically has nothing or redirects back to the Hyatt site…

Author
Jason Stauffer

Yes, you have to call in to book Miraval stays.

My stay is from June30 to July2. Will I still get points back?

Author
Jason Stauffer

Terms aren’t 100% clear on that, but my guess is that you will because your checkout date falls within the promotion. Just be sure to register and to be okay if you don’t get the rebate.
