How To Have a Hyatt Resort All To Yourself

In order to have a Hyatt (or presumably any other) resort all to yourself, just tag along on a work trip that your spouse has in the middle of the week in May.  In about three weeks this resort will be filled to the brim with families on summer break.  But today, it is all ours.  If you like some quiet and have the ability to travel “off-season”, you can have a Hyatt resort all to yourself.

If you don’t believe me, just look.

In the lobby – no people.

Outside the lobby – no people.

At dinner – still no people.

Sunset on the lawn – all to ourselves.

Even Little C was trying to figure out which way to go in order to find the people.  She never succeeded……though she did find the playground.

Also, this will probably only appeal to some, but they had some of the best and healthiest kid’s menu choices that I have seen in a long time.  Here is the kid’s chicken teriyaki bowl.  It also came with a side of fruit and it was only about $6 total.  We had no french fries, no chicken nuggets, and no ketchup (for a change).

Of course, maybe my husband bought out the resort and failed to mention that little fact.  😉  Either way, this was pretty awesome.  Have you had luck in getting great resorts to yourself just by going slightly off-season?

  1. Looks like the Hyatt Hill Country in San Antonio? I was just there 2 weeks ago and it was packed!? Not only with folks from my Company but tons of random families, etc. Must have just lucked out!?

  2. You could have taken those pic at 6AM when no one would be out. 😛

    I’ve in hotels when its packed, as well as being at a hotel when I was the only guest. I agree, its fun, but I find it boring to not have anyone to talk to. I don’t usually travel with family.

  3. We stayed at Conrad Bali the week leading up to Chinese New Year’s Day. That week is the lowest of their low season-Christmas vacation is over and Chinese New Year vacation hasn’t started. The resort wasn’t empty but the few of us staying there loved having the resort to ourselves.

  4. I stayed in a resort in Jamaica during the hurricane season, and the first day we got there, there were no people anywhere! Eventually more people emerged, but it was still a small enough group that everyone knew who everyone was. (By the way, the weather was beautiful 😀 )

  5. @Ari, nope, but I am staying there next month!
    @wijomas, ha ha. They had fries, we just didn’t have fries. 😉
    @Gene, oooooh, I like where you’re head’s at!
    @PointSnob, different resort, but I am excited to try that one out next month.
    @Mark, let me assure you that I will not be found out taking photos at 6AM unless there is a very very very good reason. Ha ha. These were all taken from about 5:30P – 8:00P.
    @Acker, that sounds really nice!
    @Jeanne, sounds perfect!

  6. My 6 year old loves Chicken Teriyaki, you’re right, that’s not usually an option for kids. I love when there are lots of different choices for the little ones as well, other than just Mac and Cheese. Although, my kids will usually still choose the Mac and Cheese 😉

  7. Lost Pines is a really nice property, one of my favorites. I spent a quick two-night stay there last fall and had a blast. Admittedly, the hotel was crowded with 2 large weddings so the bar scene was really enjoyable. Some highlights:

    – Excellent golf course
    – Extensive network of walking trails around the property and along the river
    – Outstanding staff
    – Good breakfast buffet
    – Great pool for kids (waterslide!)

    On the way back to AUS, don’t forget to stop for a pecan pie at Berdoll’s on the north side of 71. Even if it’s after hours, they have a pecan pie machine!

  8. Next time there is break out of sars, avian flu, swine flu, ebola, etc, book a vacation. I assure that you will be the only one there.

  9. Hyatt Huntington Beach for a work trip… it was empty in February and had great CA weather, hung by the pool alone for hours with the lifeguard.

  10. My wife and I stayed at the Westin Playa Conchal in Costa Roca the first/second week of September last year and had the resort completely to ourselves! It was technically rainy season, but locals said it doesn’t usually rain much until late September. We had great weather and a fantastic experience! Also, upgrade to the Royal Beach room. Totally worth it for butler service/privatish pool area.
