Last year, Hyatt began a partnership with the Miraval Resort and Spa that opened up possibilities to earn and redeem World of Hyatt points while enjoying the wide range of wellness and spa activities at a world-class Miraval resort. The Miraval Arizona Resort & Spa is actually where Josh and I have booked our old Hyatt Credit Card welcome bonus nights to celebrate our upcoming tenth anniversary. The resort, spa, and wellness classes look amazing, and outside of award stays, this resort would firmly be out of our budget, costing thousands of dollars for a weekend stay. For those considering making this a family getaway, know that children are not allowed at Miraval, so file this one under ‘adults-only’.
We had credit card sign-up nights to use to cover our Miraval experience, but if you were to pay using World of Hyatt points, the award price tag is almost as painful as the cash price. The Miraval Arizona Resort & Spa normally costs 45,000 Hyatt points per night for single occupancy and 65,000 points per night for double occupancy in a standard room. The regular World of Hyatt award chart tops out at 30,000 points per night, so this is well beyond the cost of any of their standard hotel rooms around the globe. Of course, this award not only gets you a room with a bed, but also includes your meals, access to many wellness activities and classes, and it provides a $175 credit per person, per night to use as you wish at the spa or on some of the activities that do carry a fee.
Get 50% of Your Hyatt Points Returned on Miraval Arizona Award Stays
If you have been wanting to use your Hyatt points at Miraval Arizona Resort & Spa, but delaying because of the high award cost, this is your lucky day as you can get 50% of your redeemed points back on Miraval award stays from June 1 – August 31, 2018!
This means that if you redeemed 45,000 points per night for a single occupancy award, you would get 22,500 points per night back after your stay. If you booked a standard room with double occupancy, it would cost you 65,000 points per night, with 32,500 per night eventually getting returned after your stay.
Unfortunately, you do need to have all of the points available to book the award upfront, but you will receive half of them back within 6-8 weeks of checkout. Remember, you can transfer points into the World of Hyatt program at a 1:1 ratio from cards such as the Chase Sapphire Preferred. Learn more. Getting to experience a world-class wellness resort and enjoy a $175 credit per night for only 22,500 Hyatt points, sounds like a fantastic opportunity to me…even if it is pretty hot in Arizona during the summer months.
To book these stays, call (866) 792-3395 as Miraval award stays must be booked over the phone. Be aware that the points redeemed for items other than stays (such as Dining, Spa & More Awards) do not qualify for this 50% offer. I can’t wait to experience this resort and then share our experience in the coming months, but in the meantime, you can go ahead and lock in Miraval award stays for trips from June 1 – August 31, 2018, and get 50% of those points back!
