Limited Time: 50% of Your Hyatt Points Returned on Miraval Arizona Award Stays

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.

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!

Thanks to Miles to Memories for spotting this opportunity.

  1. One needs to be careful if booking this offer. Basic room rates when booked through the hotel website are already comparatively low June-August. Most nights the entry rate is less than $400 pp so cash and points probably wouldn’t make sense, although an award stay should eliminate their version of a resort fee. Also, renovations are going on during this period, including the resort’s main dining venue. It’s not entirely clear what arrangements the resort has made to re-accomodate that venue. Still a good deal, just be careful to read the Miraval website closely and weigh all options.

  2. 50% rebate helps but will be hot there during summer months; rather be at another hyatt all-inclusive spot by the beach/ocean

  3. Tucson summer’s are miserable, therefore this ridiculous discount. It would be a very tedious walk around its open air property to get to even indoor, A/C activities in 110 deg temps.

    That said, 32,500 WOH points x .018 value = $585 which does not even begin to cover their 3 GREAT meals/day, unlimited tasty snacks, free outstanding workshops, high resort fees, & $175 daily resort credit/ea/2 ppl. If somebody just wants to try on the experience for a couple of days to determine if they wish to return in the spring or fall (& probably get a nice room upgrade), this is a fantastic opportunity. I would go as soon as possible in June, however.

    Reminds me of when La Quinta resort in Palm Springs basically paid my husband & I to stay there for 3 nights during an August! We didn’t take them up on the unlimited free golf, however.

  4. Does the redemption include the $175 resort credit. I have heard that the resort credit may not get included for the award night?

  5. Looks like the award night does include $175 credit. They initially told me that it did not, but on closer inspection, it does include this. Without it, the redemption probably does not make much sense. Hope that helps others. By the way the weather is very nice here right now!
