Back in October, we told you about Hyatt Adding Homes. Then, in March Hyatt announced that you would be able to earn and burn Hyatt points at Oasis Properties. This was an interesting option for Hyatt fans. While, I hadn’t had a chance to book anything yet I was still excited to have the option.
Bummer! Hyatt Sells Oasis Home Rentals Partnership
Per a note from Hyatt, I have the following to report:
Vacasa, the largest vacation rental management company in North America, has purchased the Oasis Collections business. As a result, effective immediately, Oasis Collections is no longer affiliated with The Unbound Collection by Hyatt or the World of Hyatt loyalty program.
We recognize that customer demand for the alternative accommodations offering remains strong for occasions when travelers seek more space or a longer stay, and we will continue to evolve our approach as to how we might best serve that need, which may include discussions with Vacasa.
Hyatt is in the process of reaching out to World of Hyatt members to assure them that Vacasa plans to honor World of Hyatt member reservations confirmed before October 2, and World of Hyatt will award World of Hyatt points and tier night credits that members expected to earn for those reservations.
This information will soon be posted on Hyatt.com here: https://unboundcollection.hyatt.com/en/unbound/home-rentals.html
Looking for Hyatt Points?
For families, having larger properties to rent for vacation is a plus! I still like this idea and wonder if Hyatt will pursue another option similar to this one in the future.
