Recently Hyatt made an announcement sharing news Hyatt is expanding their ongoing alliance with Small Luxury Hotels (SLH). If you’ve ever wondered how to use points for hotel in Anguilla, this will be good news for you.
Hyatt has been aggressively expanding their alliance this year. In fact, it was not long ago that Hyatt and SLH reached 200 participating hotels earlier this year. With this latest announcement, Hyatt now has over 300 participating SLH hotels and resorts around the world.
Hyatt’s Latest Announced SLH Hotels
What does this mean for the World of Hyatt members?
Well, take just one look at the new locations Hyatt added from SLH’s luxury boutique hotels and I’m confident you’ll see a property that catches your eye.
World of Hyatt members now have access to more than 300 of SLH’s luxury boutique hotels that offer new locations across growth markets for Hyatt, including:
- The Reef by CuisinArt, a luxury beach resort in Anguilla nestled on the southerly shores of Merrywing Bay overlooking the beautiful coastline
- Le Refuge de la Traye, a mountain retreat in the French Alps with newly renovated eco-luxury chalets set between lake and mountain in Les 3 Vallées ski region
- Arima Hotel, a boutique hideaway in the Basque region of San Sebastián, Spain with leading authority in eco-friendly lodging that offers majestic views of the Miramón forest
- Vista Palazzo Lago di Como, a 19th century Venetian-style Palazzo offering 18 palatial rooms and suites, known for its glamour and panoramic views of world-famous Lake Como
- Ksar Char-Bagh in Morocco, a stunning Moorish palace in a Marrakech palm grove oozing opulence and tranquility with its Persian-style gardens and plunge pools
- French CoCo, an all-suite Caribbean escape set on the beautiful island of Tartane, Martinique
Points Redemption In Anguilla
The latest Hyatt announcement adds a hotel redemption option on Anguilla with The Reef by CuisinArt at Merrywing Bay overlooking St Martin. This hotel is relatively new to the island having been opened in November of 2016.
This hotel sits on Rendezvous Bay and the old site of the St Regis Temenos Anguilla and Temenos Villas. The property was purchased in 2010 out of receivership by the Cypress Equities Group.
A true story from Mr & Mrs. Weekly Flyer. We were in Anguilla in 2009 minding our own business enjoying a lunch at the Trattoria Tramonto restaurant on the West End Shoal Bay West Beach when we over heard a banker / island manager discussing the deal over the phone. The discussion went something like the old Temenos was going bankrupt, they couldn’t afford the golf course, and at a minimum the Cuisinart should buy the golf course and add it as a benefit to guests. Pretty cool to see 10 years later I can finally redeem points at the SLH boutique hotel near the golf course.
How To Use Points For Hotel In Anguilla
World of Hyatt hotel point redemption at The Reef Anguilla starts at 25,000 World of Hyatt Points. This redemption is for a Golf View Junior Suite. The room has about 700 square feet to stretch out.
Look out onto the golf course from the panoramic windows in this 700-square-foot suite. The space offers a king or twin beds, seating area, and stylish bathroom with a twin vanity and free-standing bathtub
Hotel Benefits Offered In Anguilla
It’s important to note that not all World of Hyatt benefits are offered yet with stays at SLH properties. Each booking comes with the notice below which seems to indicate benefits such as complimentary parking on award nights, club lounge access, complimentary bottled water, waived resort fees and other benefits. I’ve reached out to Hyatt and will update this post with any clarification.
PLEASE NOTE: Standard World of Hyatt benefits are not included with stays at Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH). This includes complimentary parking on free night awards, club lounge access, complimentary bottled water, waived Resort or Facility fees and more. Award Bookings at SLH properties are for 2 adults and additional adults or children may be charged an additional fee by the property. World of Hyatt points are awarded on room rates only, services such as dining and spa are not eligible for earning points.
