Park Hyatt Maldives Arrives April 1, 2011

One of the main gripes people have about Hyatt is their hotel footprint – especially internationally. However, as of April 1st, it looks like Hyatt will be adding a Park Hyatt Maldives to it’s portfolio – an announcement that has me salivating, especially on this rainy/snowy/miserable NYC day.

Apparently, the existing Alila Villas Hadahaa resort will re-brand as the Park Hyatt on April 1, 2011. This was confirmed by a tour company, though I haven’t heard an official annoucement from Hyatt. I did, however, tweet them and their response was, “At this time we have not designated the hotel a point category.” So this confirms the hotel is coming, but I have a feeling they will create a new category for it, though I’m hoping they will introduce it as a Category 6 (22,000 points) at least for the first year.

Overall, I’m pumped. I visited the Seychelles last summer and absolutely loved it and Maldives is on my short list of tropical vacations.

    Agree Mark. Would l0ve to see some coverage in Spain and the Netherlands.

    So any chance this property would be included in Hyatt’s yearly form of faster free nights? Two nights at a hyatt place equals one night in the maldives….SIGN ME UP!

    @Sky- lets not get ahead of ourselves- I’m not even convinced we will see FFN again (though I certainly hope so!).

    With so many free nights from the credit card floating around out there, I’d be surprised to see them open the resort to FFN/credit card nights.

    I predict they will treat each room as a suite (as they are), therby not allowing them to be redeemed with (non-Diamond member’s) credit card nights.

    OMG I stayed at this place last June it is absolutely out of this world. An amazing place. It is in a southern Atoll which has not yet been developed, at the time it was the one and only resort in the whole Atoll. When we were going to dive sites and asked the guides what to expect they were like “don’t know, this is another one we haven’t even tried yet”. Looking forward to see the terms this could sway us to go back this year.
