Update: While the property now displays 15,000 points online it doesn’t seem to actually be bookable…still, yet, who knows. Will keep updating when I know more!
Update #2: The property is bookable on Hyatt points, but it is charging 20,000 points per night instead of the displayed 15,000. Hyatt thus far has been honoring the 15k rate by depositing 5,000 points per night booked back into your account when requested. I suspect they will fix the glitch and display it at 20,000 points per night in the near term.
Great, great news for those who want to use their Hyatt points to stay at the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar. As you may know, after several years of delays, this property is now open via a soft open preview period, and a larger opening is coming soon on May 29th.
The great news out today is that the property is now accepting Hyatt points for reservations starting June 1, 2017 and onwards. Even better, instead of ringing in as a Category 5 property as they have been listed on the award chart, they are pricing as a Category 4 property for 15,000 Hyatt points per night!
When the property first came online for booking years ago (before the bankruptcy of the larger Baha Mar project stalled progress), it was a Category 4, but it jumped to a Category 5 before ever opening. I have no idea how long it will hold now back down to a 4, but that is where it sits today!
If you want to make a booking, it wouldn’t hurt to hustle, just in case. I don’t see the property listed on the award chart at this moment, so I can’t say whether it is intended as a 4 or a 5. I do know that I really want to head to this property sooner rather than later. Are you trying to piece together a Bahamas trip?
