In March of 2022, Hyatt released a separate award chart for the 100 all-inclusive properties that it acquired with the purchase of Apple Leisure Group. These properties are located throughout the world and are slowly becoming integrated into the World of Hyatt rewards program.
This process began with the collection of resorts known as All Moments Resorts (the AMR Collection). While there are locations in the Europe that are being folded into WOH as well, the majority are located within the Americas. These were the first to be brought on board.
There are now 74 all-inclusive properties that are bookable in the Americas with the World of Hyatt program. They are all in Mexico and the Caribbean and, surprisingly enough, only one of them costs more than 29,000 points in peak season.
World of Hyatt’s All-Inclusive Award Chart
Hyatt has an all-inclusive award chart that applies to all of the new AMR properties as well as Hyatt Ziva and Hyatt Zilara. They use letters to denote the categories, as opposed to the numbers used on Hyatt’s traditional award chart.
Below is the award chart for standard rooms. Redemptions start at 12,000 points (equivalent to a normal category 4) and go all the way up to 58,000 points, subject to peak, off-peak and standard pricing.
Effectively, the chart goes from a traditional Category 4 to a new “Category 9” and leaves the US-based Miraval chain in it’s own “Category Bazillion.” There are also other all-inclusive properties, like Greg’s favorite Alila Ventana Big Sur, that remain in the traditional chart.
- Currently, Category 1-7 certificates are not usable for Category E and F.
- Although the all-inclusive chart effectively starts at a traditional Cat 4 (at 15K points standard), the terms say you can’t use a Cat 1-4 cert at an all-inclusive.
- If you do use a Category 1-7 certificate, you won’t be able to pay for more guests beyond two, something you can do with a normal points redemption. So, if you have kids, the all-inclusive chart is effectively out-of-bounds for any certificate redemptions.

As of now, 74 total all-inclusive properties are bookable throughout Mexico and the Caribbean in World of Hyatt’s “Inclusive Collection”. That includes 64 from the AMR collection that have already been added, as well as 10 Zivas and Zilaras. Of those, the breakdown by category is:
- Category A – 10
- Category B – 32
- Category C – 31
- Category F – 1
It’s encouraging that, in the Americas, there’s only one property higher than a category C, or 29,000 points/night in peak season. There’s ten all-inclusive properties bookable for as low as 12-18,000 points. That’s undoubtedly great news for many folks, although the fact that category 1-4 certificates are not able to be used at them is confusing and disappointing…and I hope something that WOH reconsiders in the future.
I’m sure that there will be more D, E and F properties as WOH continues to add many higher-end options worldwide, but the options so far represent surprisingly good value based on current cash prices. Most days that I search show an average of between 1.5-4 cents per point compared to the cash rates.
Dreams and Secrets used to be Choice Privileges partners back in the day. The reviews at the time were mixed and, looking over recent reviews, they continue to be. It’s not terribly surprising to see them at Category A-C. Zoëtry, on the other hand, is well-reviewed and looks like a lovely set of properties. Here’s how reader Deltahater described the differences:
Sunscape is the low-budget family property
Now and Dreams are family properties with Dreams being more sophisticated
Breathless and Secrets are adults-only
Zoetry is more for the elderly among us
I have stayed at Dreams for the last 12 years. They are NOT like Ziva/Zilara. One step below. (Zoetry is probably a notch above Ziva/Zilara)
I have to say, and it may very well show my “elderliness,” the most exciting properties for me are the Zoëtrys…there’s some pretty cool possibilities there. While the vast majority of all of these properties are in Mexico and the Dominican Republic, the various options in Panama, Costa Rica, Curaçao and St. Martin create some intriguing options, like pairing Secrets St. Martin with a trip to Zemi Beach House in Anguilla.
All seven AMC brands count separately towards the Brand Explorer program, which is great. Once the full integration happens, 40% of Hyatt’s total brands will be all-inclusive, a huge change from just a couple of years ago. It’s good to know that elite benefits, including confirmed suite upgrades, will apply at all of these brands. We’ll learn more as folks start to book these properties and the AMR Collection continues to be incorporated into the World of Hyatt.
