To The Point

From the adults-only Hyatt all-inclusive resorts in Mexico and Jamaica, the adults-only wellness resort in Arizona, to the Andaz properties in Amsterdam, Costa Rica, Hawaii, and beyond, here are some of the best Hyatt properties for kid-free stays…

This is a family-centric travel site where most of the trips we take and talk about include kiddos, but I’m also all for the kid-free vacation. If you have the luxury of taking some trips without the little ones along for the ride, I think everyone is the better for it. The kids get some time to bond with grandparents, cousins, etc. and the parents get a chance to breathe and be more than just mom or dad for a minute or two. Or perhaps your kids are now at an age when they no longer travel with you all the time and you are aching for a trip where you are less likely to get a cannonball into your mai tai next to the pool. Strange but true alert, if you had an eleven-year-old when this blog started, they are now EIGHTEEN YEARS OLD!

 

There are a million reasons why a traveller who is normally all-in on travel can find themselves hoping for a trip that isn’t dominated by families, so here’s a look at some points-friendly Hyatt properties that would be good for a kid-free trip.

Enjoy some kid-free relaxation!

Adults-Only Hyatt Zilara All-Inclusive Resorts

I’ve visited the adults-only Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall in Jamaica and the family-friendly Hyatt Ziva Cancun and both were top-notch resorts. Obviously, if you want to limit your exposure to kids and families then targeting the Zilara family of resorts that do not allow children is a great way to go. You can find these adults-only resorts in Jamaica and Cancun. The Jamaica resort is adjacent to the family-friendly side, so don’t expect to never see a kiddo, but for the most part, they will stay on their own side and in their own pools while adults have their resort to themselves.

In Cancun, the family-friendly Ziva (which was spectacular), is in a different location from the Zilara resort. While I haven’t stayed at the adults-only location in Cancun, I’ve heard good things, and if it is anything like the family-friendly version, I believe it will be a top-notch experience. Do note that the adults-only Zilara Cancun will be closed for renovations from August 13 – Nov 30, 2018. The Hyatt Ziva Cancun does have adults-only accommodations in their Turquoize suites, though you can’t book that room category with points. However, it could be worth making a regular points reservation at the Ziva Cancun and then contacting the hotel directly to see if you could ‘upgrade’ to the adults-only side of things.

These all-inclusive resorts are a great place to use Hyatt points as it is just 25,000 Hyatt points per night for double-occupancy and that includes not only your room, but also your meals, drinks, and activities!

All-Inclusive Wellness Retreat at Miraval

If you want a kid-free retreat available using (a lot) of Hyatt points, then the Miraval Resort in Arizona may be the perfect match. This Oprah-worthy retreat costs 45,000 Hyatt points for single occupancy and 65,000 points per night for double occupancy. That is a ton of points, though it does also include a $175 resort credit per person per day (hello spa!), and all guests at the resort enjoy unlimited meals, snacks, smoothies, and over 120 wellness activities and classes each week.

If you still have some of those Hyatt credit card nights from the old version of the Hyatt card, this is a fantastic way to use the nights if you are seeking luxurious “wellness and balance”.

Park Hyatt Maldives and Park Hyatt St. Kitts

The Park Hyatt Resort properties do host some families, but in my experience, the majority of guests are adults looking for a high-end getaway. This is especially true of the Park Hyatt Resorts that are located in harder to get to places such as The Maldives. The Park Hyatt Maldives will cost you 25,000 Hyatt points per night and then Park Hyatt St. Kitts is 30,000 Hyatt points per night.

Park Hyatt Maldives

On our trip to the Park Hyatt Maldives we didn’t encounter many other families at all, and I expect on our upcoming trip to the Park Hyatt St. Kitts we will have much the same experience. At the Park Hyatt Maldives some of the land villas have their own private pools, so between enjoying your own villa, your own private pool, and the ocean itself, you don’t really need to see anyone else anyway!

Relax at an Andaz

There are currently no other adults-only Hyatt properties beyond those already mentioned, but after staying in more than my fair share of Hyatts around the world, I can tell you that the Andaz brand is by far the one where you encounter the fewest families and have the highest chance of an adult-oriented stay. This is especially true if you are traveling outside of traditional school breaks.

Andaz Maui

Some of the Andaz properties that we have already enjoyed or that have my eye for an adult-oriented getaway are Andaz Maui, Andaz Mayakoba in Mexico, Andaz Papagayo in Costa RicaAndaz Amsterdam, Andaz Napa, Andaz Palm Springs (slated to open in 2019).

From a points perspective, the Andaz in Costa Rica is the best value at just 15,000 Hyatt points per night as a Category 4 Hyatt property and the Andaz Maui is the toughest of the bunch as it is 25,000 Hyatt points per night but the property is notoriously stingy about releasing award rooms.

Have you used your Hyatt points for a kid-free getaway? If so, I’d love to hear about your favorite Hyatt properties to enjoy for a relaxing kid-free stay!
