The last time we noticed Hyatt adding more Small Luxury Hotels (SLH) to the World of Hyatt program was, unsurprisingly, before the pandemic brought the world to a standstill. Now, a recent announcement from Hyatt indicates that 12 more SLH properties were added to its loyalty program back in April (who knew?) and that a further 22 SLH properties/experiences were added just yesterday.

Here’s what you need to know about the latest additions to the World of Hyatt:

  • 31 new properties and a new experience are joining the World of Hyatt
  • The properties are spread across 16 countries
  • The properties will be joining the World of Hyatt in categories 3 through 8
    • 1 x Category 3
    • 4 x Category 4
    • 8 x Category 5
    • 14 x Category 6

*The M/Y Kontiki Wayra – Kontiki Expeditions in Manta has not been assigned a World of Hyatt category because it is not available for World of Hyatt points redemptions. This is an “experience” rather than a SLH property and guests will still earn points for bookings made through Hyatt.

WoH earnings at SLH properties

  • World of Hyatt members earn five Base Points per $1 USD spent on eligible room revenue
  • World of Hyatt members receive their standard tier Bonus Points on eligible room revenue spend:
    • Discoverist – 10%
    • Explorist – 20%
    • Globalist – 30%
  • Qualifying nights at SLH hotels count toward earning World of Hyatt elite-tier status
  • All holders of card_name (review) will earn an additional 4 Bonus Points, for a total of 9 World of Hyatt points, per $1 spent at participating SLH properties.

WoH benefits at SLH properties

Participating SLH properties will provide the following on-property benefits to all World of Hyatt members who book through Hyatt, regardless of status:

  • Complimentary Wi-Fi
  • Daily complimentary continental breakfast for two guests
  • Room upgrade (one category at check-in if available)
  • Early check-in (noon, based upon availability at check-in)
  • Late check-out (2:00pm, based upon availability at check-in)

Bottom line

The World of Hyatt continues to be the most compelling of the hotel loyalty programs as it now not only offers one of the best award charts around but it also offers a very large selection of properties that aren’t just the usual cookie-cutter properties and that offer something different.

With well over 300 SLH properties now in the World of Hyatt program, Hyatt’s footprint has expanded significantly in the last few years, with top-tier elite benefits continuing to look more and more attractive in comparison to what we see offered by a number of the other major hotel loyalty programs, and with Hyatt (anecdotally) continuing to treat its guest noticeably better than most of the other big chains, the World of Hyatt has never looked more attractive.
