Just seven months after adding it to World of Hyatt, the Oasis home rental group has been dropped as a partner.

Oasis is a collection of:

….. over 2,000 personally vetted homes in prime neighborhoods worldwide like Rome, Barcelona and Punta del Este (Uruguay). Enjoy the authentic feel of a residence with the hotel-like amenities you are accustomed to like in person check-in and checkout, fresh linens, luxury toiletries, internet and a personal concierge. Whether you’re traveling with your family, have a longer stay in mind or need a little more space, consider Oasis home rentals to meet your travel occasion needs.

World of Hyatt members would earn 5 points per $1 spent at Oasis plus late check-out benefits.  Nights also counted towards Hyatt status.  You could also redeem Hyatt points for Oasis stay credit.

Hyatt launched this partnership after buying a minority stake in Oasis.  The company has now been taken over and Hyatt sold its stake at part of this process.  All ties with World of Hyatt were broken immediately although benefits will be honoured on existing bookings.

Coincidentally, Marriott Rewards has just announced that it is increasing its foray into home rentals.  The initial trial with Hostmaker to offer London rentals (we wrote about it here) seems to have been a success and the partnership is expanding into Paris, Rome and Lisbon.  Stays earn Marriott Rewards points and stay credit.  You can find out more here.
