Our Verdict

The good thing about points bookings is you get a $175 resort credit per person per day and unlimited meals, snacks. The rates are as follows:

Cash rates seem to vary quite a lot. It seems with an award booking you’re basically getting Miraval Unlimited package and that seems to cost around $550+ per night. 22,500 points per night doesn’t seem like a terrible redemption, it’s annoying that the second person has an additional payment of 20,000 (10,000 after rebate). Anybody ever stayed here before? What’s it like? Kathy at Will Run For Miles has more details here.

    Anyone tried to redeem a free night here yet?

    • They only just started accepting bookings but don’t see why you couldn’t use a free night?

        I talked to a rep in reservations yesterday at the resort and they were unclear if we could use award stays. Ultimately they told me no, but did not seem too sure about it. I currently booked on points, but will be looking to cancel 2 of those nights and using award stays if this methodology changes.

        They also confirmed depending on your status, you are eligible for upgrades. They book you in the Native Spirit room, and you will be eligible for any of the other rooms (not suites) if available such as the Dreamcatcher or Sunrise rooms.

      I just booked a night – bc this place looks insane. Unlimited free meals including a 4 course (seated) dinner and bfast/lunch buffets, happy hour snacks, unlimited juice/smoothie bars. Can arrive 10am on check in day and leave 5pm check out day, so basically 1.5 days of amenities. $175 resort credit and a bunch of activities or spa tx to choose.

      Must pay 45,000 hyatt points up front, after check out hyatt will credit back 22,500 back into your hyatt acct.

      Call miraval directly to book the room and speak with agent. Give hyatt number and they can access your acct to pull the points.

      Value? Paid room was $600/night for my dates, so almost 3 cents per point. Plus the $175 given back to you to spend at resort, plus all inclusive with really good food.

    Does anyone see a connection between the Hyatt Card changing to 40k over 2 nights, and the addition of this hotel, which has a standard rate of 45k a night? June 29th, last day to sign up for the card with 2 night bonus… June 29th, emails go out to WOH members (at least for me, around 4pm EST).

    Sees plausible? Whats the Doc think

  3. MontyFC says:

    There is an Amex offer as well specific to this property. Spend $500+ and get $100 back. Valid until 7/31.

    This link still works for me for the hyattt 2 night offer

  5. Greg Z says:

    Can we use the sign-up nights here? With guest?

  6. dan says:

    even with a 50% rebate/discount, 42.5K pts for double occupancy is steep comparing to all-inclusive zilara & ziva in the Caribbean, although it’ll be a different experience; also, if going to hot climate in summer, preference for a place by the ocean or water for some cool down

    • Doubly occupancy would be like 32.5k points after the rebate. You’re also getting $350 in resort credit. I think it’s kind of hard to compare them, I imagine the zilara/siva are better suited towards families than this property?

    • fathiss says:

      I think it is 32,5000 points with double occupancy and not 42,500. 45,000/2 + 20,000/2 = 32,5000. For that you get $175/person/day credit or $350/day. If you value Hyatt points at $0.02/pt then you are paying $650/day in points and receiving $350 in resort credits.
      Not so bad a deal for an all inclusive but still more points than I want to spend.

  7. Adam says:

    The main problem with this offer is the fact that most people don’t have 195,000 Hyatt / UR points sitting around in their accounts for a three night stay. Plenty of people probably could come up with 97,500 though. Giving the points out as a rebate instead of as a straight discount is a good way to limit this offer to a very small subset of rewards members, those that have massive point balances who are willing to spend hundreds of thousands of points on a resort in Arizona. I have about 125k Hyatt points available and will definitely be using them towards Hyatt Ziva / Zilara Cancun over this place. Who wants to be in the middle of Arizona during summer anyways!

  8. Jason says:

    Lived in Tucson for the past 15 years and had no idea this place existed. Rates are insane, especially for the summer, it’s been crazy hot here. The money or points you spend there could get you something at someplace a lot better.

  9. dan says:

    Where do you see the unlimited meals and snack thing?

  10. Mark Jackson says:

    I can confirm that chase nights will work here, but the globalist free night WILL NOT. Ended up redeeming for a one-night stay since I’m scottsdale-based, double occupancy. Resort credit nearly wipes away 10,000 point extra for the second person.

    Wish I could’ve used my free globalist night, though 🙁

  11. I have all the details in my blog post yesterday about which Hyatt free night stays can be used at the Miraval and which ones can’t be use. I got the info directly from Hyatt..

  12. Spencer says:

    Sorry if I am just missing something… A three night double occupancy points stay would be 45k x3 + 20k x3 = 195k points with a rebate of 97.5k points back to the account 8 weeks later. What I am missing is why / how you would earn $175×2 per day resort credit and what would you spend $1050 on property for at an all inclusive? Nevermind, I think I got it, Spa treatments are not included in the all inclusive? If that’s the case, are we talking about $400 for a 1-hr massage?

    • Mike says:

      The $175 per person per day can be combined for the entire stay, so you do not need to redeem the $175 each day. In addition to spa services, you can spend the money on classes, horseback riding, hikes, bee keeper courses, etc. I was only told you can not use it in the store or on alcohol. I just booked my stay and was looking at all the services they offer and I saw a 50 min Swedish massage for $150. I was also told no one is allowed to accept tips and they can be fired for doing so.

  13. This looks like a fabulous property if you want to experience the full “wellness resort/spa” experience (which I never have). If I was going to Arizona (I’d hoped to go this month but family issues necessitated otherwise), I’d be more interested in checking out the Andaz Scottsdale which has amazing summer rates. PS, temps well over 100 degrees this time of year in AZ….

    Pulled the plug and redeemed at the last minute for a three-night award stay. Got a fantastic upgrade to a Sunrise King (in the ideal building with unobstructed views and private outdoor showers). Pleased to discover things have improved since my last visit here 3+ years ago. The last two owners (with no background in lodging or luxury experiences) were focused on cutting costs, reducing services, laying off long-time employees, and adding surcharges for things that were previously free (want a second dessert at the all-inclusive resort? It’ll cost ya!). The food, while always excellent, has definitely been stepped up a notch. They’re also now proactively asking if guests would like a (complimentary) second entree or dessert. (I know you may be thinking: who wants two desserts? Well, the sweets are small portions here by design; and also when there are five options, it’s not uncommon for two people to want to sample at least three of them). Hyatt has hired back most if not all of the workers that had been let go before. Miraval has been open 21 years, and it’s wonderful to see a number of faces that have been here at least half of that time.

    Members of Authentic Circle (Miraval’s loyalty program that kicks in on the fourth stay) also receive an additional $100 resort credit even on award stays. That’s always been true for paid stays, but it’s especially nice to see them continue the tradition on a free visit. Although AC members are provocatively upgraded, it would appear anecdotally that being a Globalist trumps that. There are some AC members who’ve been here dozens of times, booked well in advance, and found themselves in regular rooms while paying full price. Am I ashamed to be in an awesome room for free? Not at all! 🙂

    I did ask when Miraval would be integrated with Hyatt’s reservation system. They’ve been told this will never happen, that they’ll always have their proprietary system and booked separately. It does mean confirming an award stay takes a bit longer, since you have to call Miraval and they have to then call Hyatt to request the reception, but it still happens relatively quickly.

    I’m looking forward to returning in the fall with a friend so I can use my Hyatt Credit Card free night certificates for a double occupancy stay.

    Oh, and as an aside: even though this is the off season because of the typical weather, it’s currently much cooler here than many places around the country, including my home in Atlanta. It’s even rained a bit each day, which just makes the desert landscape that much more beautiful.
