Hyatt Hotels Corporation is further expanding its existing loyalty alliance with Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH).
The expansion has quadrupled the number of participating SLH properties since the alliance launched in November 2018 and is expected to continue this growth throughout 2019.
“We encourage World of Hyatt members to explore these luxurious destinations around the globe, from Croatia to New Zealand,” said senior vice president, World of Hyatt, Amy Weinberg. “The rapid growth of this strategic loyalty alliance is a testament to our commitment to delivering unique experiences wherever our members travel and continuing to extend the genuine care they have come to expect from Hyatt to more locations around the world.”
World of Hyatt members now have access to more than 200 of SLH’s luxury boutique hotels that offer new locations across growth markets for Hyatt, including Croatia, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Italy, Kenya, Mozambique, New Zealand, Portugal, St. Vincent and The Grenadines and Turks and Caicos and more.
Through this exclusive relationship, World of Hyatt members can explore sought-after destinations such as Monkey Island Estate, an 18th century estate-turned-boutique retreat on a private island on the Thames, Berkshire; Ovolo The Valley Brisbane, a boutique oasis located in the center of Fortitude Valley, Brisbane’s ultra-hip entertainment district; Mykonos Riviera Hotel and Spa, a sun-drenched luxury resort tucked against the rocky backdrop of centuries-old Aegean cliffs; Enso Ango Fuya II, an artful Kyoto escape set across five Zen-inspired buildings; and Hotel Nantipa, a Costa Rican paradise retreat immersed in the surf culture of Santa Teresa.
CEO, SLH, Jean-François Ferret commented: “This alliance has proven to be a perfect match. We are seeing a positive impact on reservations for our hotels from World of Hyatt members. Exposure to more than 16 million World of Hyatt members has not only helped increase reservations, but also allows us to expand our brand awareness while providing more luxury boutique hotels options for World of Hyatt members to choose from on their travel journey.”
