World of Hyatt partnered with Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) back in 2018. The tie-up allows World of Hyatt members to book SLH properties via hyatt.com, and get exclusive benefits for doing so, and redeem their World of Hyatt points with SLH.
A further batch of SLH hotels was added this week. These are:
In the UK:
- The Dunstane Houses in Edinburgh
Elsewhere Hyatt has added:
- Auberge de Cassagne Spa in Le Pontent Avignon, France
- Bergwelt Grindelwald – Alpine Design Resort in Grindelwald, Switzerland
- Breidenbacher Hof in Dusseldorf
- Ca’ di Dio in Venice
- Gaia Riverlodge in Cayo District, Belize
- Hotel La Roya in Saint-Florent, France
- Hotel Raphael in Paris
- Itzana Resort & Residences in Placencia, Belize
- La Torre del Canonigo in Ibiza
- Les Bories in Gordes en Provence
- Le Domaine d’Ablon in Ablon, France
- L’Escale Resort Marina & Spa in Mahé, Seychelles
- Matachica Resort & Spa in Ambergris Caye, Belize
- M/Y Kontiki Wayra – Kontiki Expeditions in Manta, Ecuador
- The American Colony Hotel in Jerusalem
- The Grady in Louisville, Kentucky
- Villa Soligo in Farra di Soligo, Trevosi, Italy
- White Coast Pool Suites in Milos, Greece
- Wilder Townhouse in Dublin, Ireland
As well as being able to redeem your World of Hyatt points at these properties, you will get special benefits when staying at a Small Luxury Hotels property. When – and only when – you book via hyatt.com you will get:
- Complimentary continental breakfast
- Complimentary Wi-Fi
- Early check-in 12:00pm (based on availability)
- Late check-out 2:00pm (based on availability)
- Room upgrade to the next category up (based on availability)
Interestingly, having status in World of Hyatt isn’t worth anything at SLH hotels except for a status bonus on the points you earn. The benefits are fixed. You will earn 5 base World of Hyatt points for every $1 spent.
It’s just a shame that World of Hyatt points are so difficult to earn if you live in the UK. There are only a modest number of Hyatt properties in major business cities in Europe, there is no UK credit card and they are not an American Express Membership Rewards partner.
Don’t forget your American Express cashback
American Express is currently offering £100 cashback on a £300 spend at selected Small Luxury Hotel properties before 30th September.
Nothing stops you booking via the Hyatt website, to get the benefits above, as long as you book a ‘pay on departure’ rate. Not all of the hotels above are taking part in the offer, so check the list on the American Express website if you are targetted for the deal.
