Good news and bad news for Hyatt Gold Passport members. The amount of points that you earn as a valued member can go further at some locations now and at others you are going to need to use more to get the same accommodations that you once received before.
At approximately 50 locations the Gold Passport points required to reserve rooms will go down meaning use fewer points and get better rooms. This is amazing, and you will be able to visit locations that you only dreamt about before because now the points will go further than ever before. On the other hand at another 50 or so sites, you will need more points to receive the accommodations you did previously.
Hyatt changed these point policies to even out the usage of points making all of their locations equal on categories of rooms and hotels rather than location. Opening the world up to its members.
Thailand specific changes:
Hyatt Regency Phuket Resort. Changes from category 4 to category 3. This means that a free night now only requires 12,000 points, down from 15,000. A free night in a suite is now 20,000 points, down from 24,000, and Regency Club rooms are now 17,000 GoldPassport Points, down from 21,000.
