The Grand Hyatt Kauai, one of my favorite resorts on one of my favorite places in the world, is having a pretty nice sale.
Daily rates from now through 10/31 are just $299 and from 11/01 through 12/23 are just $279. After that rates go back up to the standard $459 per night.
Tax adds 13.42% and there is also a $25/day resort fee, making the $279 rate become $341.44 all-in. The normal $459 rate is $545.60 all-in, so this is a savings of more than $200 per night.
Of course you can also stay free with no blackout dates, no tax, and no resort fees with award nights by opening a card like Chase Hyatt, which gives 2 free nights worldwide for spending $1 and Platinum elite status which gives you room upgrades and free internet. Plus if you already have Hyatt elite status (or are elite with another chain to match to Hyatt) you also get suite upgrades when you apply for the card.
Of course you can also stay for free with Ultimate Rewards points from Chase cards such as Sapphire Preferred Visa, Sapphire Preferred World Mastercard, Freedom Visa, Freedom Mastercard, Ink Bold, Ink Plus, Ink Classic, or Ink Cash.
The Grand Hyatt Kauai is a top-tier category 6 hotel, and would require 22,000 points per night in a standard room or 33,000 points per night in a suite. Ultimate Rewards points transfer instantly to anyone’s Hyatt account at a 1:1 ratio.
