Hyatt Residence Club At a Glance
There have been a lot of changes as Hyatt Residence Club continually listens to their owners and the way families want to vacation. Previously, the club was named “Hyatt Vacation Club” upon their introduction to timeshare. Members could own deeded weeks up until the re-brand in 2009, which introduced more of a hybrid system for previous owners using weeks and satisfied the demand for points.
The transition to points brings frequent travelers the Portfolio program, which allows members to exchange their points between resorts within Hyatt’s network. There are currently 16 Hyatt Residence Club resort locations throughout the United States, but Hyatt also offers opportunities to take your vacations to far-off destinations.
We've selected two locations that Hyatt owners love. Consider making them a part of your vacation plans!
Perhaps the most popular resort within the brand’s network, the Hyatt Residence Club Ka’anapali Beach Resort in Maui is a picture-perfect paradise. Sitting on the shores of almost 2,000 feet of pristine beach, this tropical sanctuary will be any ocean-lovers favorite spot. One, two and three-bedroom villas offer guests a range of accommodations for almost any size travel party. Every unit includes a free-standing tub to soak in after those long afternoons lazing in the sunshine, as well as a separate walk-in shower.
On-site the Maui resort is a zero-entry pool, complete with a beautiful backdrop of the Pacific Ocean that surrounds the property. Sip on a refreshing beverage from the poolside bar and relax, or take the little ones over to the kids water play area.
Visit the place where it all started. Hyatt’s very first timeshare resort in Key West, Sunset Harbor provides boutique-style accommodations that Hyatt is known for. Overlooking the Key West Harbor with stunning scenery, guests can enjoy the sparkling water or head out to the historic attractions around Florida’s most famous island town.
There are two other resorts that belong to Hyatt in Key West as well. Hyatt Beach House Resort has even more luxurious accommodations, which are complete with jetted spa tubs, separate bedrooms and screened-in balconies. Enjoy the two on-site dining options, the SHOR American Seafood Grill or Blue Mojito Pool Bar.
Last but not least, Hyatt Windward Pointe Resort sits on the southernmost shores of Key West and has some of the best ocean views. The private balconies even have telescopes, so you can stargaze when the sun goes down.
Transfer Your Hyatt Points
Since the Hyatt Residence Club began to transition to a strictly points-based system, owners can enjoy Club-to-Club Exchange with the Portfolio program. We gave you just a snapshot of four of Hyatt’s amazing resorts, but there are currently 16 Hyatt locations to choose from. Redeem Hyatt points in other destinations like Puerto Rico, Florida, Breckenridge, Lake Tahoe and even more.
Hyatt’s vacation club is also affiliated with Interval International, a reputable exchange program that allows members to trade their timeshare weeks or points at hotels and resorts worldwide. II even has some exclusive discounts on travel services like car rentals or airfare.
Take Advantage of World of Hyatt
Owning a timeshare with Hyatt’s vacation club includes other opportunities that give you the most bang for your buck. World of Hyatt is just like a rewards program, where members earn points from qualifying stays at qualifying resorts or hotels within the Hyatt portfolio.
There are four different tiers of World of Hyatt membership, with elevated rewards at each level. Join for free and work your way up to earn free nights at qualifying hotels or resorts, get club lounge access or suite upgrades. This rewards program is entirely unique to Hyatt and can’t be beat.
How to Buy Hyatt Points
The cheapest way to buy a timeshare is through a timeshare resale. If you’re looking for savings already by purchasing vacation ownership, save even more money when you buy a timeshare on the secondary market, all while enjoying most of the same benefits. If buying Hyatt doesn't seem like an option right now, consider financing your membership.
Fidelity Resales has a healthy inventory of Hyatt timeshare resales. Buy Hyatt points (and learn how to make the most of them) by making an offer on a property listed online. One of our licensed real estate agents can contact you and take care of the rest!
