Park Hyatt hotels are the most luxurious brand within the Hyatt hotel group and are some of the best Hyatt hotels in the world. I love luxury Park Hyatt hotels because of their blend of elegant design, local flavor, sophistication, and gracious service. Park Hyatt hotels cater to luxury travelers around the world, from city centers to airports, from Europe, across America through to Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. But which is the cheapest Park Hyatt in the world, and where can you find the best Hyatt discount?

We have outlined the best Park Hyatt hotels, the best Andaz hotels, the best Grand Hyatt hotels, the best Hyatt Regency hotels and the best Hyatt Centric hotels.

While the Park Hyatt brand is luxurious and does not include the cheapest Hyatt hotels, some are cheaper than others. Regardless of the price, the immense level of luxury they offer is retained across the portfolio. They are all great! In this review, we focus on the cheapest luxury Park Hyatt hotels.
There are some clever ways to get your Park Hyatt hotel booking even cheaper, whichever hotel you choose. If you travel outside the high season, you may well be able to buy a packaged-up break with free nights or discounts. Equally, if you book on unpopular nights, such as weekends in cities or on Sunday nights, you often get the very cheapest room rates.
Here is my pick of the cheapest Park Hyatt hotels in the world. It is not a definitive list, as rates change all the time, and new Hyatt hotels are popping up everywhere, but I hope my choices will inspire you to fly away. Even luxury hotels are affordable if you know how to play the game!

There is only one Park Hyatt hotel you can book and redeem for 5,000 World of Hyatt loyalty points per night, and that is the Park Hyatt Chennai, 10 minutes from Guindy National Park and 15 km to the airport. It is also cheap, both in points and in cash, at around $80 USD per night.
There are a number of reasons why you might be searching around for a cheap Park Hyatt. Park Hyatts tend to be great hotels, so maybe you just want a vacation. Equally, maybe you are looking to earn some world of Hyatt points or hit a target by staying 60 nights to achieve Globalist status or retain Globalist loyalty status. If you want a cheap Park Hyatt to stay in for 60 nights, this is it!
This contemporary business hotel has fabulous views of the Guindy National Park, just head up to the infinity pool, and you will see what I mean. It also has friendly staff and a theatrical restaurant, the Flying Elephant. Here, at 9:00 pm each evening, all the waiters dance to Gangnam Style, before returning to serving.
The nicest thing about the hotel beyond the views and the rooftop pool. The hotel designer also used natural materials bringing the outside in, and there is a pretty lily pond and courtyard.
201 understated and stylish rooms and 20 chic suites have marble floors, an oversized work desk, and custom-made art installations. The bathrooms are large and have tubs and showers.
This may not be your first choice for a holiday destination, but this Park Hyatt maintains luxury whilst being the very cheapest hotel in this luxury hotel brand, pretty much whenever you visit.

4. Park Hyatt Ningbo Resort and Spa
Park Hyatt Ningbo Resort and Spa also costs 12,000 World of Hyatt points per night. Admittedly, other Park Hyatt hotels are easier to get to, this one is a picturesque two-hour train journey from Shanghai to Ningbo with a brief stop in Hangzhou. We already have reviewed the best club lounges in Hangzhou, but if you are in this area of the world, don’t miss out on the Park Hyatt Ningbo Resort and Spa.
You can take a taxi from the station past a lake to the hotel. It takes about 45 minutes and costs less than $30 USD.
The hotel is more like a Chinese village that sits on the banks of a placid lake set amongst rolling hills. Traditional tile roofs, and bridges are offset by waterways that meander through this five-star resort.
Infinity pools seem to disappear into the lake, and you can cruise the lake or rent your own boat to explore.
Globalist members can use suite upgrades to score a Park Executive Suite, which is enormous with huge windows that overlook the beautiful grounds and down to the lake. breakfast here is also great with Western Japanese and Chinese breakfast items.

5. Park Hyatt Siem Reap
Park Hyatt Siem Reap is your other cheap Asian Park Hyatt and also comes in at 12,000 World of Hyatt points per night.
Park Hyatt Siem Reap is an elegant oasis of sophistication amid the hustle and bustle of downtown Siem Reap. Small birds hop to and fro, pecking for ants around the pool, while a huge Banyan Tree shades the resort from the blazing sunshine. Little touches, such as the elevator being scented with a bowl of fresh jasmine flowers, make this hotel special.
If you’re a European or North American, Siem Reap is definitely otherworldly. Most people who come here do so for one purpose. To visit the largest religious site ever constructed by mankind. Just 15 minutes from the hotel by motorcycle tuk-tuk, Angkor was, in the 11th century, the world’s largest city. One in a thousand of all human beings alive lived here then. It was the capital of a mighty kingdom unknown to the Western world until French archaeologist Mouhot started to map it and cut back the forests which had overgrown its beautiful temples. Over a thousand temples have since been identified.
There is much more to Siem Reap than temples, though. Wonderful restaurants, the most amazing, intimate circus troupe, vibrant markets, and even a crazy golf course.
If you want to get to know this crazy, hurly-burly town with a big smile but have a quiet, luxurious hotel to retreat to, you couldn’t do better than the Park Hyatt. Slap bang in the middle of town, within walking distance from everything, including the famous (infamous?) Pub Street but hidden within plain white walls concealing a haven of tranquillity and elegance.
The smallest room is 35 sqm and beautifully furnished in a modern take on Khmer style. All rooms are very well appointed with Nespresso machines, effective aircon, marble bathrooms, Wi-Fi, large screen TV, and everything else that spells luxury.
View rooms have a view of the courtyard and are quieter than the outward-facing rooms. Suites range from the 71sqm Park Suite King to the Presidential Suite. Our favorite, though, is the Park Executive Suite – there are only four, and one of them has two bedrooms. Each has its own courtyard and private plunge pool, which is exactly what you need when you have survived the humidity at the temples.
There is just one restaurant for the 104 guest rooms, but it is a very good one, and a three-course dinner can be as little as $25 USD per person. There are always special offers on wine (including Champagne), and dinner is accompanied by a very tasteful display of traditional Khmer dance and music three times per week.
The lounge is a beautiful and cool place for cocktails or meetings, and the hotel shop displays some truly fantastic Khmer artworks to admire or purchase. They support a local art charity too.
This hotel is so good it’s hard to believe that it is also one of the cheapest Park Hyatts in the world, with rates from around $140 USD per night. Don’t miss out!

The most expensive Andaz is probably the Andaz Maui which is one of the best Hyatts in Hawaii, with the Hawaiian Grand and the Regency also some of the most expensive within these brands. Even the Waikiki Hyatts are eyewatering, although these Hawaii Hyatts are cheapest, but then, Hawaii is paradise. You get what you pay for!
Cheaper Status In World Of Hyatt Loyalty Scheme
You may be wondering about the advantage of booking a cheap Hyatt at all. One of the reasons is to book into a cheap Hyatt is to boost your status in the World Of Hyatt loyalty scheme. Whether you are a Hyatt Discoverist, Hyatt Explorist, or an elite Hyatt Globalist, you will want to hit the next level of loyalty, and sometimes a mattress run at a cheap Hyatt will help you hit your targets.
Globalist status is the top tier, which is typically earned after 60 nights or 100,000 base points ($20,000 USD in spending), so if you can complete your 60 nights at a really cheap Hyatt, this will make achieving Globalist status cheaper.
Hyatt Globalists get many valuable perks, including complimentary breakfast at properties like the Andaz Maui. Of course, if you book the Andaz Maui via our luxury travel concierge you will also get daily full breakfast for 2 per room as well as other Globalist perks like a welcome amenity, $100 USD property credit per stay. Early check-in / late check-out and room upgrade are available on request (subject to availability), so you don’t need any status at all to get these benefits if you book your stay with us.
But there are some perks that Globalists get that we can’t match. These include a 30% points bonus on stays, giving you an additional 1.5 points per dollar spent. One of the Globalist members’ favorite perks is the Suite Upgrade Awards. You earn two of these at 50 elite-qualifying nights (or 80,000 base points) and another two upon reaching 60 nights (or 100,000 base points) and earning Globalist status. Rather than hoping for an upgrade at check-in, these certificates give you suite confirmation at the time of booking for up to seven nights. These suite upgrade awards can be used on paid stays and standard award stays (including Points + Cash reservations).
Another favorite perk for the Globalist member is free club lounge access and/or free breakfast, which includes complimentary full breakfast for each registered guest (up to 2 adults and 2 children) in the hotel’s restaurant, and club lounge also with free breakfast, snacks and soft drinks throughout the day plus a light meal in the evening and complimentary alcohol at some American Hyatts and most Hyatts outside America. Having access to one of these club lounges will enable you to make a major saving on your stay as you often don’t need to eat or drink out at all. It is almost like your Hyatt has become an all-inclusive if you have club lounge access.
Globalists also avoid resort fees too, All World of Hyatt members (including those without elite status) don’t have to pay resort fees on award stays. However, the new program waives resort fees for Globalist members on all stays (excluding Residence Club properties and M life resorts). This is a significant saving on vacation destinations like Hawaii or the Caribbean where these fees are very common and expensive.
