Hyatt reduces points needed for free night in 4 Hyatt properties in Thailand

Great news for Hyatt fans traveling to Thailand.

Hyatt announced changes to their award chart this week, with the number of World of Hyatt points required to redeem a free night changing for 259 hotels throughout the world. While there is a pretty even split between the number of hotels that will require more points and hotels that will require less points (130-129), the news is all good for Hyatt fans traveling to Thailand.

Of the Seven Hyatt branded properties in Thailand, 4 are affected by this change in the Award Chart, and all now require less points for a free night due to them moving down a category. This is fantastic news as free nights at the Grand Hyatt Erawan in Bangkok and the Hyatt Regency Hua Hin both now only require 12,000 World of Hyatt points for a free night in a standard room, down from 15,000 points. These two properties will move from award category 4 to award category 3.

Meanwhile, The Hyatt Place Bangkok Sukhumvit, and the Hyatt Place Phuket Patong, both category 2 hotels, will drop to category 1, meaning free nights in a standard room will drop from 8000 points to 5000 points.

It is not just free nights in standard rooms that will become cheaper (pointwise), Regency/Grand Club rooms, as well as Standard and Premium Suites also become a better deal. See the table below for the changes in more detail.

The changes come into effect March 18, 2019
