If you’ve been considering booking a trip to the Asia/Pacific region, you may want to accelerate your planning process.

Hyatt is out with a deal that could significantly reduce your spending on a hotel or resort stay, and you don’t have to be a top-tier member or have a haul of points available to tap into some huge savings.

You’ll need to act quickly, though.

Sign up for our daily newsletter

Between now and July 28, Hyatt is offering a third free night for every two booked at a select list of Asia/Pacific properties.

We’re talking resorts in Bali, the Maldives, Thailand and elsewhere. It appears 19 properties are eligible, some of which have nightly rates north of $1,000, with others much more affordable.

The promotion applies to stays between Monday, July 18, 2022, and Mar. 31, 2023. This means you can take advantage of the savings if you’re thinking of traveling around the holidays or for a March spring break getaway.

A key provision, here: Be sure to enter the promotion code RESORT when you book, though if you go through the promotion page it may auto-populate for you. I found that the code was already entered when I went to select my room.

Yes, this particular promotion does mean you’ll book with cash, not points, but it could be a great way to earn a nice haul of points you can then use on a future trip.

One of the eligible properties is Hyatt’s brand new Alila Kothaifaru Maldives, which opened earlier this year. It has 80 villas, 36 of which are overwater villas. A night at this resort isn’t cheap — it was $1,750 per night for the stay I checked out in January.

Because this promotion allows you a third night free for every two nights you stay, however, I plugged in six nights, giving me two nights free. While the base rate would have come to $10,500, with the promotion it only comes to $7,000 – a savings of one-third.

Also eligible: the Andaz Bali. It's in the southeast part of the island, a resort with lots of authentic, regional touches, pools and greenery. It's also within 30 minutes of Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS).

The nightly rate at the property comes to $430. If you really wanted to take advantage of the deal here, you could make this an extended stay of nine nights, getting three of them free.

In the end, you’re paying for less than a week’s worth of nights. Again, make sure to enter the code RESORT.

Instead of the original $3,870 total for the base rate, the total base rate comes to $2,580.

Act even sooner for bonus points

You can stack benefits if you’re willing to both reserve your stay and embark on your trip in the very near future. In addition to the third night free, Hyatt is also offering 1,000 bonus points for every two qualifying nights at the same eligible Hyatt properties in the Asia/Pacific region.

You’re capped at a maximum of 15,000 bonus points.

The catch here is that, instead of having until the end of next March to use this promotion, as you do with the third-night free offer, you must complete your stay by Sept. 2, 2022.

Bottom line

While World of Hyatt members who act especially quickly can tap into some big-time bonus points, you’ll have far more time to take advantage of this third-night free benefit.

Be sure to enter the RESORT promo code and book by July 28. If you do this at an eligible property, you could stay six nights while paying for only four, nine nights while paying for only six, and so on.

This could be an opportune moment to get a head start on booking fall or early 2023 travel.

Add in access to Citi Entertainment plus a $100 hotel credit for any single-stay hotel booking that exceeds $500 or more, excluding taxes and fees, booked through the Citi travel website, there are few reasons why the Citi Premier should not be in every traveler’s wallet.
