Hyatt is out there pushing their business in India. They have done a couple of 50% off sales last year, and another promotion is now active to promote the Gold Passport program across the country.

For all stays that are materialised between December 1, 2014 and March 31, 2015, which have the offer code India at the time of booking, you get a 2500 point bonus from Hyatt Gold Passport. Here are the details of the promotion as per Hyatt.


The offer code is valid for all the 21 Hyatt properties around India.

Last month, when the promotion was announced, I was under the false impression that the application of this promocode would inflate the rates for the stay. However, that is not the case, when I saw it again on closer inspection.

If you’re considering staying at a Hyatt property in India, here are my reviews on the ones I’ve stayed at so far:

I am also waiting for a global Hyatt promotion coming up January 15, 2015 to make my decision on how to maximise this promotion.

Last week, there were some targeted promotions sent out via email to members of the Starwood SPG and Hyatt Gold Passport programs, which should be of interest to some of you. These would have quietly landed up in your inbox and you need to look for them and register to be able to make use of the offer.

Hyatt has sent out offers to various members, which I believe would be targeted for activation or comeback of members. The offers range from:

  • 1 free category 1-4 night for one eligible stay
  • 1000 points for one eligible stay
  • 5000 points for five eligible stay
  • 5000 points for three eligible stays
  • 5000 points for one eligible stay
  • 5000 points for four eligible stays
  • 2000 points for one eligible stay

The T&C state the following definition for an eligible stay:

An “Eligible Stay” is defined in the complete Terms and Conditions of the Hyatt Gold Passport program, except that stays at M life resorts do not count as Eligible Stays under this promotion. Award nights shall not constitute an eligible night.

Personally, I was targeted for the 1000 points for 1 eligible stay between May 1 and July 31, 2014 promotion. Emails were sent out on April 22, 2014.


Also, a couple of days later, Starwood launched a similar targeted promotion towards some members who may have been dormant, called Exclusive Rewards. Offers were as follows:

  • 5 Elite Qualifying Nights after 1 stay, another 5 after the second stay
  • Cat 1-6 stay certificates
  • 1500 SPG points after 1 stay and another 2500 after the second stay

Of course, if you’re a Starwood regular, you won’t get these promotions because these are targeted at dormant accounts. You should look up the accounts to see if any one gets a promotion.


Do share your offers in the comments section below.
