We’ve decided to make it a routine to stay at a big name hotel our first night off a flight in a brand new city. It’s nice to pick out the word Hyatt or Marriott from the crowd of drivers and hop in and go. No figuring out the bus system or being overwhelmed with where to stay or how to get there. We’ve done it that way too a few times.
The Bali Hyatt is a category one Hyatt, which means that it can be redeemed for the small fare of 5,000 points. Hyatt’s redemption prices make Hyatt a lucrative transfer from Chase or to stay in during a promo. Cheap hotels with the word “inn” at the end of their name will charge 10,000 – 20,000 points and the luxurious Hyatt costs just 5,000 for their category one. A no brainer, right?
Hyatts aren’t just luxurious because of their locations, the tallest buildings and the best views, or their luxurious design and facilities but because of their service too.
The driver called ahead to let them know we were coming and we were met by the staff in traditional Indonesian attire who adorned us in locally picked flowers made into a leigh. We were taken to the priority check-in desk and then escorted to our room.
A little while later a staff member brought us a little cake saying it was a gift. And then after returning from the beach we found the bath filled with water and flowers like a spa. Hyatt is a good program to be a part of.
