As reported by View From The Wing, Hyatt has added 12 new partner properties to its portfolio in April. No official announcement was made at the time these properties were added.

These properties were added to Hyatt’s partnership with Small Luxury Hotels (SLH) and span numerous countries, many of which have reopened to American tourists.

Through this partnership, World of Hyatt members can book paid and award rates at SLH properties. That said, Hyatt elites are not eligible for standard elite status benefits like free breakfast.

Let’s take a closer look at the new partner properties.

Intriguing new Hyatt redemption options

There are some interesting new additions to Hyatt and SLH’s partnership that expand the World of Hyatt footprint to smaller cities around the world.

One of my favorite new additions is Keswick Hall near Charlottesville, Virginia. The property focuses on food with three on-site restaurants, one of which is designed by chef Jean-Georges. You’ll also find on-site golfing, tennis and a beautiful pool.

The Amani Boutique Hotel in Zanzibar, Tanzania is another interesting option. This beachfront hotel has just 14 rooms and various on-site amenities, including a beach-front bar and restaurant.

If you’re headed to a recently-reopened Italy, you can use World of Hyatt points to cover a stay at the Donna Carmela near the Ionian Sea. You’ll find posh rooms (some with a private hot tub), an on-site spa and nearby wine tours.
