Hyatt is coming for the vacation rental market. Its new offering, called “Homes & Hideaways by World of Hyatt,” will be launching in the coming weeks — and you can earn and redeem World of Hyatt points on stays.

Here’s a look at everything you need to know about this exciting new venture from Hyatt.

Homes & Hideaways by World of Hyatt

World of Hyatt members will have direct booking access to a collection of short-term private home rentals across the United States in key travel destinations such as Hawaii and Colorado with options to come around the globe at a later date.

The initial batch of homes will essentially be a rebrand of existing vacation rentals under the “Destination by Hyatt Residences” moniker. This includes properties at The Lodge at Spruce Peak in Vermont and Wild Dunes Resort in South Carolina, among others.

“We are committed to evolving access to the type of accommodations World of Hyatt members are seeking that go beyond our hotels – from a large family who travels together or guests looking to work from anywhere for an extended period of time,” said Amy Weinberg, Senior Vice President, Brand, Loyalty & Data, Hyatt.

“Homes & Hideaways by World of Hyatt brings a unique collection of curated homes which increases Hyatt’s home offerings and expands new ways and new places where we can extend care to members,” she continued.

These properties will participate in the World of Hyatt program, though we don’t know yet how they’ll be classified within existing World of Hyatt award charts — or whether they’ll have their own chart. Considering how Hyatt has fragmented its property groupings, we expect the latter to happen. We also believe it’s safe to assume that these premium properties will be on the expensive side to book — in cash and points.

If you want to get a head start on earning World of Hyatt points, remember that if you have a card that earns Chase Ultimate Rewards or Bilt Rewards points, you can transfer them to the World of Hyatt program at a 1:1 ratio.

Hot Tip:

Hyatt isn’t the first hotel chain to get into the home rental market. Marriott Homes & Villas also offers the ability to earn and redeem points at rental properties around the world.

Final Thoughts

There will soon be another option for World of Hyatt loyalists to earn and redeem World of Hyatt points. For families, reunions, corporate retreats, or anyone else who needs a large space for a getaway, this may become a great option within the Hyatt portfolio.
