World of Hyatt has 8 hotel categories, which range in price from 5,000 points- 40,000 points per night for standard rooms. Additionally, you have the option to redeem for club rooms and standard and premium suites depending on the property. Additionally, Points + Cash is an option, which requires 50% of the points required for a free night and 50% of the standard rate.

Looking at an example, we searched for Costa Rica, and the Andaz Costa Rica Resort at Peninsula Papagayo showed up.

As this is a World of Hyatt category 5 property, if you wanted to redeem points, it would be at a rate of 20,000 World of Hyatt points per night for either 1 King Bed or 2 Double Beds.


Alternatively, you choose the Points + Cash tab, and see that you could redeem for 10,000 points plus $180 per night if you were to go this route. 

Bottom Line:

When redeeming World of Hyatt points for free night awards, always be sure to check the paid rate vs. the points option to make sure you’re getting a good deal. The same is true when looking at the Points + Cash option.

There’s some tremendous value to be had with redeeming World of Hyatt points at high end properties such as the Park Hyatt MaldivesPark Hyatt Paris-Vendôme, and the Andaz Maui at Wailea.
