The Park Hyatt St. Kitts is a property many of us points enthusiasts are excited about, given that it’s a beautiful looking points hotel that doesn’t require 12+ hours of flying from the US to visit.

This Spring, the hotel had an incredible promotion. They were offering a fourth night free, a $300 per person resort credit, and best of all, that was combinable with Hyatt Prive amenities, which include a room upgrade at the time of booking subject to availability, a $100 property credit, daily breakfast, and more.

So in the end people were getting a fourth night free plus a $700 credit for four night bookings when there were two people in a room.

Dozens of you booked this incredible deal, and it was especially a steal when you consider that this is a Category 7 World of Hyatt property, meaning a free night here would cost 30,000 World of Hyatt points, which is significant.

Many of you have asked me if this deal is still around. Unfortunately it’s not — this seemed to be an offer to create buzz around the hotel, and was also for low season stays.

So what’s the current deal at the Park Hyatt St. Kitts, both for this year and next year? It’s worth being aware of, so you can decide if redeeming points or paying cash for a stay is a better value.

Current Park Hyatt St. Kitts offer

If you haven’t yet booked a stay at the Park Hyatt St. Kitts but are interested in going, I figured I’d recap the current deal available.

The hotel is currently offering a fourth night free promotion, valid through the end of the schedule.

For stays through December 23, 2018, the hotel is further offering a $300 resort credit per stay of four nights (not per person). For stays after December 23 (the start of the high season), the hotel is offering a $100 resort credit per stay of four nights.

Combine this with Hyatt Prive perks

Earlier this year the Hyatt Prive program was introduced, which is Hyatt’s special program available to select travel agents. This offers their guests special privileges for stays at select Hyatt hotels. For stays at Park Hyatt hotels, guests booking through Prive receive:

  • A $100 property credit per room per stay
  • A one category room upgrade confirmed within 24 hours of booking, subject to availability (room-to-room or suite-to-suite)
  • Daily full breakfast for two in the hotel’s restaurant
  • Early check-in (as early as 9AM) and late check-out (as late as 4PM), subject to availability
  • A welcome gift and letter

In this case Prive benefits and the promotion are stackable, meaning you can get a fourth night free, daily breakfast, and a $200-400 resort credit, depending on when you’re staying.

How to book

If you want to combine the two promotions, you’ll have to contact a Prive advisor. Ford is a Private advisor and would be happy to help, and can be reached at [email protected] (other Prive advisors are welcome to leave their info below).

I’d recommend first looking up the “4th Night Free With Credit” rate on Hyatt’s website. Note that the rate already factors in the fourth night free, so it’s the averaged rate over four nights.

Then an advisor can verify the rate is the same and help you book (or rebook, if you’ve already made a refundable reservation) and get all the Prive perks, including complimentary breakfast, an additional $100 credit, a room upgrade subject to availability, and more.

Options for redeeming points

Some may prefer to redeem points at the rate of 30,000 World of Hyatt points per night. Personally I value those points at 1.5 cents each, but then you have to factor in the points you’re forgoing by booking an award stay, the value of the credits, breakfast (if not a Globalist), etc.

The good news is that there are lots of opportunity to earn World of Hyatt points. If you want to acquire Hyatt points I’d recommend applying for The World of Hyatt Credit Card, which is offering a welcome bonus of 40,000 World of Hyatt bonus points after spending $3,000 within the first three months, plus another 20,000 bonus points after spending a total of $6,000 within the first six months

World of Hyatt is transfer partners with Chase Ultimate Rewards, so you can transfer over points earned on cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred® CardChase Sapphire Reserve® Card, and Ink Business Preferred℠ Credit Card.

Bottom line

Unfortunately the deal at the Park Hyatt St. Kitts isn’t as good as it was earlier in the year, but that’s to be expected. Still, I think there’s quite a bit of value to be had, especially in the high season, between the fourth night free, $200 credit, room upgrade, daily breakfast, etc.

I’ll be going to the Park Hyatt St. Kitts in November, and will report back!

Comments

  1. We’ve just returned from St.Kitts – this hotel is at the end of a long road on the peninsula with nothing around – keep in mind, if you go here, you will be stuck at the hotel for everything, unless you have a car or a USD50 taxi to anywhere in St.Kitts

  2. Hey Lucky, I see you talked a bit about Prive but the Citi Prestige 4th night free should also work in conjunction with the hotels 4th night free right?

  3. I was one of the lucky ones. No pun intended who took advantage of the $700 resort credit stacked on top of Citi Prestige’s 4th night free perk. We went in August and the hotel was near empty at 10% occupancy. Was a heck of a deal. Citi is no longer allowing the 4th night free perk to be used with this particular Hyatt offer. This was as of August 30th so things may have changed. What stunning property it is. The food at every restaurant at the property was fantastic !

  4. My wife and I took advantage of the $300 per person credit stacked with Hyatt Prive deal and will be going there Nov. 4th for 4 nights. Which days will you be there? Would be cool to run into you!

  5. @Jo, my family of three, me, my wife and 10-year old son will be there on same dates as you. look me up on Facebook at [email protected] and we could meet up to discuss miles/points and St Kitts.

  6. We went in July and didn’t manage to spend the entire $700 credit, its a beautiful place and fantastic staff as well, you will be pushed not to have a good time. Only criticism is the beds were hard, so be sure to get a Mattress topper and extra pillows!

    Also the hotel is a little isolated, so it is worth spending the extra to get a Rental Car, although choose carefully, especially if you arrive late – American’s late flight from MIA arrives around 10pm and there is no on-site rental car place.

    We would return in a heartbeat on this offer, but the problem is lack of seats available for Miles on the dates I am looking at and RT from US Mainland runs around $1K. I feel thats te main problem thats preventing this PH from being successful.
