Update: After sleeping on it, even though there are several reports of this being true, it just doesn’t seem to make sense. Since there are no confirmed reports of this being true directly from Hyatt, I will file it under rumor until proven otherwise. In other words, I’ll believe it when I see it.
Looks like we might have a chance to use Hyatt points to stay in Jamaica in the near(ish) future, if the rumors are true. The Ritz-Carlton Rose Hall is reported to be re-branding as a Park Hyatt…but now there are conflicting reports on this. It’s no secret that I think Park Hyatts are exceptional hotels, and I have also gotten a huge value from my Hyatt points on those stays. According to this article, some pretty extensive renovations are planned for the former Ritz, and it is expected that the hotel will re-open for the 2013-2014 winter season.
The article also mentions that Hyatt plans to add 100 suites to the property. If that turns out to be the case, that would be great for those who like a little extra room to spread out on their vacations. I have never been to Jamaica, but a Park Hyatt would probably be enough to push me into trying it out – especially on points! Anyone else want to head for some fun in the sun to a Park Hyatt in Jamaica?! If this turns out to be true, of course….
