Hyatt is gearing up to open its first hotel in Malta.
Hyatt Regency Malta is due to open on 10th October. Situated in St Julian’s, it is a new-build with 151 rooms, three restaurants, an indoor pool and an outdoor rooftop pool. It overlooks St George’s Bay.
Malta is open to UK visitors and no proof of a coronavirus test is required as far as I can tell. You will, however, be required to quarantine for two weeks on your return to the UK.
You can find out more about the hotel on the Hyatt website here and a photo is above.
As a World of Hyatt redemption it is a Category 2, which is 8,000 points per night.
Given my 1p per point valuation for World of Hyatt points, this makes it good value even at the depressed €99 November rates.
For Summer 2021, when I can see cash rates as high as €200 per night, it is excellent value for points.
It’s worth noting that you can currently buy World of Hyatt points with a 25% discount until 30th September, which would represent a big saving on Summer rates.
