The 23 best Hyatt hotels in the world

16 March 2023

There’s a Hyatt brand and a Hyatt hotel for every budget, from labels like the casual new Caption all the way up to tony Park Hyatt. You might even be surprised to discover some smaller boutique hotels are also connected to the World of Hyatt loyalty network. 

You can find great points deals in the U.S. within Hyatt’s Category 1 tier of hotels. However, you might need to plan ahead to rack up enough points for a stay at some of the company’s more in-demand hotels for award travel.

Whether you’re looking for overwater villas in the Maldives or a fabulous hotel that blends history with elegance in London, or even just a great all-inclusive resort, Hyatt has plenty of stellar offerings across many of its brands to satisfy your interests. It doesn’t hurt that stays at any of them are great ways to earn and redeem World of Hyatt points while you’re at it.

 With all that in mind, here are the 23 best Hyatt hotels in the world.

[roundup-affiliate type=”hotel” capi-id=”8671″ post-id=”1442402″]

Alila Ventana Big Sur is about as aspirational as it gets for Hyatt resorts in North America.

This may not be the first brand you think of when it comes to all-inclusive vacationing, but rates at the Alila Ventana Big Sur, though pricey, include all meals and snacks as well as reusable water bottles (alcoholic beverages are purchased separately).

A stay here is about unplugging, TPG noted back in 2020. The resort is about two-and-a-half hours south of San Francisco, off the Pacific Coast Highway and surrounded by California redwoods. It’s easy to feel secluded here, as there are only 59 guest rooms and suites (plus 15 tented cabins for glamping) spread across 150 acres.

The decor nods to nature with wood paneling and earth tones, as well as leather chairs and working fireplaces (think: a fabulous cabin in the woods).

The Sur House, the resort’s main restaurant, is only available to hotel guests for breakfast and dinner service, offering a more intimate setting to complement the American cuisine and views over the Pacific Ocean.

Head to Spa Alilia for a range of treatments, made all the better by the resort’s outdoor cabanas. A 100-minute massage can only be enhanced by the scent of California redwoods in the air, yes? Alila Ventana Big Sur offers many other activities too, from s’mores by the campfire to a lesson on birds of prey with the resort’s Master Falconer. 

 Rates at Alila Ventana Big Sur currently start at $1,630, or 35,000 World of Hyatt points, per night.

There’s a mix of architectural awe and the pinnacle of downtown coolness by kicking back with a cocktail at The Bar Room at New York City’s The Beekman.

The soaring atrium is bedecked with wrought iron railings and crowned by a skylight casting a romantic patina over the mix of guests and eclectic furnishings below (velvet sofas, a rug-draped check-in desk and bookcases, to name a few).

Apart from the views of Manhattan’s Financial District outside the rooms’ windows, it doesn’t exactly scream Big Apple business district when you’re in one of The Beekman’s 287 guest rooms and suites.

The decor includes distressed leather headboards and wide wood-planked floors. Splurge for a Turret Penthouse for the ultimate city indulgence. These two-story lofts feature beam ceilings, outdoor space and a freestanding soaking tub.

Pop into celebrity chef Tom Colicchio’s Temple Court, a handsome restaurant space on the first floor with leather booths and golden chandeliers. The indulgent tasting menu features dishes such as stuffed quail and pancetta-wrapped venison.

 Rates at The Beekman, a Thompson Hotel, currently start at $300, or 21,000 World of Hyatt points, per night.

[roundup-affiliate type=”hotel” capi-id=”9089″ post-id=”1443513″]

Come for the view and stick around for the overall experience at the Park Hyatt Sydney, one of TPG’s favorite places to redeem World of Hyatt points. Right on Sydney Harbor, the hotel boasts one of the city’s rare rooftop pools and those incredible views of the Sydney Opera House.

Guest rooms come with private balconies and spa-style bathrooms. Hyatt Globalists are even treated to a free full breakfast (eggs Benedict or buttermilk pancakes and fresh berries) for up to two adults and two children in The Dining Room by James Viles at the hotel each morning of their stay.

The Dining Room is also open for lunch and dinner and features Australian-inspired cuisine like Barnsley lamb chops and southern rock lobster.

Those needing a little rest and restoration should check out The Spa at Park Hyatt Sydney, which offers an aromatherapy spa and 90-minute muscular well-being treatments.

Rates at the Park Hyatt Sydney currently start at $970, or 40,000 World of Hyatt points, per night.

[roundup-affiliate type=”hotel” capi-id=”9080″ post-id=”1443520″]

People come to the Maldives for the powdery white sand, uninterrupted (and sometimes overwater) views of the Indian Ocean and, just generally, to be pampered. The Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa easily provides all three.

Villas range from overwater bungalows to those nestled among the trees on Park Hyatt’s island (albeit with convenient beach access). The dark wood of the villas contrasts with airy, indoor-outdoor vibes (bathrooms often lead out to alfresco soaking tubs and showers).

Try to explore beyond your villa, though. The Park Hyatt offers excursions such as diving and boasts amenities like a freshwater pool that overlooks the ocean and a more tranquil swimming area within the property’s Vidhun Spa, which even features massages that incorporate herbs and Maldivian sand to provide both relaxation and restoration.

Rates at the Park Hyatt Maldives Hadahaa currently start at $803, or 35,000 World of Hyatt points, per night.

[roundup-affiliate type=”hotel” capi-id=”8734″ post-id=”1443526″]

It’s hard to find a room without a view at the Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills, which occupies the top floors of an office tower.

The floor-to-ceiling windows and minimalist design give the hotel an extremely sleek atmosphere that still has Japanese touches like paper partitions and panels and circular baths in guest rooms. The expansive windows give many guest rooms and suites views of Tokyo Tower or Tokyo Bay.

Guests who splurge on a suite not only get more living space and an additional powder room, but they also enjoy complimentary breakfast at The Tavern – Grill & Lounge.

The Andaz’s Rooftop Bar on the 52nd floor serves up cocktails in a semi-open-air setting. Other venues include BeBu, an American comfort food restaurant, and The Sushi, an omakase restaurant near the Rooftop Bar.

Rates at the Andaz Tokyo Toranomon Hills currently start at $582, or 25,000 World of Hyatt points, per night.

[roundup-affiliate type=”hotel” capi-id=”8726″ post-id=”1444487″]

There may be 300 rooms spread throughout the Andaz Wailea, but this resort feels more like a surfer-chic boutique getaway, with an open-air lobby, rooms with light-toned and minimalist furniture and a terraced network of pools overlooking the ocean.

The Andaz Wailea has stylish, modern accommodations where guest rooms come with rain showers and private lanais. Live lavishly in one of the oceanfront villas that come with gourmet kitchens, private outdoor spaces and easy access to the beach.

Along with a scrumptious breakfast buffet at Ka’ana Kitchen and poolside fare and Bumbye Beach Bar, the Andaz has many other unique dining options. Book ahead for the luxe Feast at Mopaku Luau, served up on the shores of Mopaku beach and the high-end sushi experience at Morimoto Maui.

Head to the Awli Spa & Salon for a variety of decadent treatments, including a 90-minute exfoliating body scrub or heat relief recovery to get over a little too much fun in the sun. 

Rates at the Andaz Wailea currently start at $842, or 40,000 World of Hyatt points, per night.

[roundup-affiliate type=”hotel” capi-id=”8811″ post-id=”1444541″]

We’ve said it for years now: Points travelers will find the “crown jewel of redemptions” at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa. From the saltwater lagoon and whopping 150-foot waterslide to a wide selection of daily activities, this is one of the smartest points plays you can make when traveling with the whole family.

Rooms are simple and unfussy, and that’s perfectly fine. The draw here is all the amenities outside. Multiple pools (including one geared toward adults, a river pool and one for activities like volleyball), open-air treatment rooms at the Anara Spa and the Camp Hyatt kids club provide something for a wide variety of guests staying at the resort.

On the restaurant front, expect everything from fancy dinners of nouvelle Hawaiian dishes served at Tidepools overlooking a koi pond to the more casual fare at the poolside Hale Nalu. The resort also offers a mix of Hawaiian cultural history and cuisine with the Grand Hyatt Kauai Luau on Wednesday and Saturday evenings.

Rates at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa currently start at $982, or 25,000 World of Hyatt points, per night.

[roundup-affiliate type=”hotel” capi-id=”8674″ post-id=”1444544″]

Check into this architectural stunner and bask in equally stellar service. Overlooking the Indian Ocean from Alila’s infinity pool (and capturing the moment with your smartphone camera) is practically a rite of passage for guests. But put the camera down and enjoy what else the resort has to offer.

The all-villa resort boasts private pools, spacious bathrooms with soaking tubs and outdoor showers. Private butlers are only the tap of a tablet away and ready to tend to requests during your stay.

Alila’s Sunset Cabana Bar perches over a cliff to rival the infinity pool for views while also serving up cocktails and Balinese dishes like babi guling in a bao bun. Fancier fare is found at Cire, a pan-Asian and Mediterranean restaurant that features plates like grilled black cod and pearly barley risotto.

Before heading home, book the ultimate spa day in Alila’s Cliff Edge Spa Cabana. This two-hour treatment includes a foot bath, a Balinese or therapeutic massage, sound healing and an eye ritual. Afterward, hang out on the cabana’s sofa while indulging in snacks to come a little back closer to earth.

Rates at the Alila Uluwatu currently start at $816, or 25,000 World of Hyatt points, per night.

[roundup-affiliate type=”hotel” capi-id=”8666″ post-id=”1444546″]

Privacy is one of the top amenities at Alila Kothaifaru Maldives, where both overwater villas and those on dry land come with private pools and an overall sense of being far removed from the outside world. Alila’s subtle elegance is a study in minimalism, earth tones and an embrace of natural beauty like banyan trees and sandy shores.

Villa guests can unwind in the outdoor showers, gaze out floor-to-ceiling windows and take advantage of the services of a personal host who is able to tend to any needs during your stay. Overwater villas are positioned to best capture either sunrise or sunset, so be sure to take note before making your selection.

At Japanese-inspired Umami, chefs whip up fresh-caught fish in the restaurant’s “teppanyaki theater.” Spa Alila, nestled in the Maldivian treetops, features treatments like the 150-minute Maldives Indulgence consisting of a coconut body scrub, a massage and a mini facial. 

This is more than just a spot for a romantic getaway, though. The Alila also features Play Alila, a dedicated venue where children can go for supervised activities.

Rates at the Alila Kothaifaru Maldives currently start at $1,137, or 35,000 World of Hyatt points, per night.

[roundup-affiliate type=”hotel” capi-id=”9261″ post-id=”1444548″]

You’re a long way from spring break in Cabo when you check into The Cape, a Thompson Hotel.

The rooftop lounge is the trendiest spot in the area for soaking in the sunset over the Pacific with a cocktail, but there’s also the opportunity to have your own private rooftop lounge. Some suites with private balconies even come with their own plunge pools and butler service.

Accommodations feature simple, midcentury modern furniture with a beachy flare and the occasional ranch-inspired flourish, like a leather headboard or pillow. You might even have a freestanding copper-clad tub where you can soak after a long day in the sun. 

Public spaces include two pools and four bars with breathtaking views of the sea. Don’t head home without booking a treatment like a CBD massage at The Cape’s Currents Spa.

Rates at The Cape, a Thompson Hotel, currently start at $589, or 25,000 World of Hyatt points, per night.

[roundup-affiliate type=”hotel” capi-id=”8614″ post-id=”1444563″]

It’s not exactly roughing it in the great outdoors in this luxe resort about three hours southwest of Muscat in the middle of the Al Hajar mountains.

The Alila Jabal Akhdar Oman follows the brand’s careful attention to design and blends seamlessly into natural surroundings. But this is still an ultra-luxurious (and adventurous) way to immerse yourself in the dramatic desert landscape.

The Alila team curates various experiences and activities like hiking to the hidden village of Al Khutaymi or a private dinner under the stars. Of course, the best way to rest and relax is at Spa Alila, which features treatments rooted in Asian healing techniques like lengthy massages and fragrant herbal compresses.

Each of Alila’s 78 suites showcases views of the mountains, while the resort’s two Jabal Villas include a private terrace and pool on top of more living space and two bedrooms for travelers in larger groups.

Rates at the Alila Jabal Akhdar Oman currently start at $486, or 25,000 World of Hyatt points, per night.

[roundup-affiliate type=”hotel” capi-id=”9072″ post-id=”1443942″]

Whether you’re looking for a first-time ski lesson or you’re practically a professional, the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek is a TPG favorite for its location at the base of Beaver Creek mountain — meaning convenient access to both bunny hills and double black diamonds.

Even if skiing isn’t your thing, the resort offers ice skating and plenty of stores and restaurants to accommodate guests who prefer the apres-ski scene.

Things can get pricey if you’re paying a cash rate for a room here, but points redemptions can make this a much more affordable trip — and eliminate the pesky daily resort fee. World of Hyatt Globalist members get the star treatment with free parking, complimentary breakfast and suite upgrades (just don’t bank on that during the peak winter season).

Guest rooms and suites are perfectly comfortable places to sleep and shower — but you’re not here to hang out in your room. The hotel’s main restaurant, 8100’ Mountainside Bar & Grill, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. The Brass Bear Bar will have your preferred apres-ski cocktail waiting for you after your final run of the day.

Rates at the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek currently start at $829, or 35,000 World of Hyatt points, per night.

[roundup-affiliate type=”hotel” capi-id=”9062″ post-id=”1444573″]

Recoleta is one of the poshest neighborhoods in Buenos Aires, and Palacio Duhau – Park Hyatt Buenos Aires has a grand address within this enclave.

You’ll be wowed when you pull up to the palace, originally commissioned as a private home by a prominent family to resemble the Chateau du Marais. Today, it houses a small cluster of guest rooms and suites.

Rooms are spacious (especially in the modern tower addition) with a mix of lighter furniture and pops of dark wood. Bathrooms are spa-like, with separate rain showers and stand-alone soaking tubs.

Be sure to check out the beautiful flower arrangements in the tunnel beneath the back garden that connects the modern tower with the palace.

Staff members are extraordinarily hospitable, and the service carries through to Los Salones del Piano Nobile, which serves afternoon tea, pastries and finger sandwiches (as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner) on the back terraces.

The wood-paneled Oak Bar is an ideal setting for savoring a glass of red wine or whiskey. A more formal meal awaits at Duhau Restaurant & Vinoteca, which serves Argentinian classics. Did anyone say steak and malbec?

Rates at the Palacio Duhau — Park Hyatt Buenos Aires currently start at $450, or 25,000 World of Hyatt points, per night.

[roundup-affiliate type=”hotel” capi-id=”8730″ post-id=”1444590″]

The Andaz Mayakoba Riviera Maya is another TPG favorite, thanks to its various room and villa options. Options include lagoon-view guest rooms and a three-bedroom Presidential Villa with a private pool and views of the Caribbean Sea (plus other amenities like walk-in closets, private hot tubs and more space than you’ll know what to do with).

With 214 rooms and suites, the resort feels small and secluded because of its location within a gated 620-acre expanse shared by other resorts, including a Banyan Tree, Fairmont and Rosewood.

Nonalcoholic drinks and snacks from the minibar are included in the nightly rate, but the Andaz shines with its various bars and restaurants.

Start your day with breakfast at Cocina Milagro, an open venue with standard breakfast staples like omelets and more Mexican-inspired creations, including chilaquiles with chicken. Casa Amate, an upscale Latin American restaurant, is only open for dinner and features refined fare like chicken marinated for three days in Uruguayan grappamiel.

Rates at the Andaz Mayakoba Riviera Maya currently start at $382, or 25,000 World of Hyatt points, per night.

[roundup-affiliate type=”hotel” capi-id=”9090″ post-id=”1444646″]

The Park Hyatt Zanzibar mixes the feel of a luxury resort with proximity to the bustle of Stone Town. The former mansion that houses the Park Hyatt Zanzibar on the white, sandy beaches of Tanzania’s Indian Ocean coast is a mix of old and new. Infinity pools overlook the ocean, and Indian and Arabian design elements evoke this trading post’s past.

Rooms are elegant without being over the top, with ornate wooden furniture, breezy terraces and bathrooms with standalone tubs.

Beach Front, the resort’s waterfront restaurant, serves a variety of paellas and fresh-caught fish. The more formal Dining Room serves Middle Eastern fare, like hearty beef mishkaki, and is a great place to wind down the day. Save a little time to grab a sunset cocktail like the Mango Tree Punch on the outdoor terrace at the Library and Veranda.  

Rates at the Park Hyatt Zanzibar currently start at $522, or 17,000 World of Hyatt points, per night.

The British colonial-inspired design of Hemingways Nairobi harkens back to a time when its namesake author explored East Africa in the early 1930s. The resort is spread across a main mansion and other buildings that pepper the hilly grounds. Outdoor seating areas are a prime spot to watch the sunset, and lights twinkle to life within the many trees dotting Hemingways Nairobi’s grounds.

Each of the resort’s 45 suites has a mix of dark wooden furniture (including four-poster beds with mosquito netting) and earth tones that make these relaxing spots to retreat after a day of exploring. Marble bathrooms are spacious, with freestanding tubs, separate walk-in showers and dual sinks and vanities. Balconies in each suite offer garden views.

The Brasserie is the resort’s main venue for breakfast, lunch and dinner and features a wide-ranging menu from sushi to house-made pastas. Hemingways Bar is notable for its cocktail list inspired by Ernest Hemingway — cranberry kiwi mojito, anyone?

Rates at the Hemingways Nairobi currently start at $416, or 30,000 World of Hyatt points, per night.

Thanks to Hyatt’s partnership with Small Luxury Hotels of the World, you can earn and redeem World of Hyatt points at this glitzy Auberge collection resort in the South Pacific.

Nanuku Resort Fiji is an aspirational hotel with luxurious private villas and an open-air spa. But luxury doesn’t come at the expense of soul, as the staff here provides attentive, warm service from check-in to checkout.

Accommodations range from roomy suites with a range of features from beachfront access to hot tubs and private pools. Beachfront residences can be a real indulgence with as many as six bedrooms in one, while newer Nanuku Villas offer views of the Beqa Lagoon and their own private pools.

Fresh seafood reigns on the menu at Kanavata Restaurant and Lounge, the resort’s Pacific Rim restaurant. A more romantic experience can be arranged with a private treetop dining experience in the fragrant foliage of a 70-year-old Dilo tree, commonly known as the “beauty leaf.” You can decide what you’ll dine on after consulting a private chef.

Carve out time for self-care at the Spa at Nanuku, which proffers treatments either in private suites or also on the Dilo tree’s private platform — allowing a sea breeze and expert massage to simultaneously lull you into bliss.

Rates at the Nanuku Resort currently start at $568, or 35,000 World of Hyatt points, per night.

[roundup-affiliate type=”hotel” capi-id=”8851″ post-id=”1444680″]

There are a few hotels around the world that have successfully upgraded jails and police headquarters into upscale places to stay. However, Great Scotland Yard Hotel might be one of the best examples. 

Named after the street where London’s Metropolitan Police headquarters was once located, the property sits on the site where Jack the Ripper was interrogated. Try not to dwell too long on that one before bed, as the point is to get a good night’s sleep and enjoy the hotel’s prime location near Covent Garden.

Beyond its history, Great Scotland Yard Hotel comprises 151 rooms and suites, each with unique layouts that feel more like the muted but gorgeous homes found in “Architectural Digest” magazine rather than a site that once housed law enforcement. Splurge for a suite and enjoy extras like a fireplace or opt for a two-bedroom townhouse, which offers the ultimate residential feel across five stories.

Ekstedt at the Yard is the hotel’s top restaurant and features Nordic dishes such as hay-smoked goose breast served a la carte or as part of three- or nine-course tasting menus.

Rates at the Grand Scotland Yard Hotel currently start at $423, or 25,000 World of Hyatt points, per night.

[roundup-affiliate type=”hotel” capi-id=”8954″ post-id=”1443853″]

Hyatt’s all-inclusive expansion has been swift and extensive over the past years, but one of TPG’s favorite Hyatt all-inclusive resorts has long been part of the company’s portfolio. 

Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall is an upscale redoubt right on the beach that feels surprisingly private despite being only 15 minutes from Montego’s Sangster International Airport (MBJ) and sharing a complex with the family-friendly Hyatt Ziva.

Service is attentive, and rooms have a youthful feel with lighter wood accented with splashes of navy blue. Marble bathrooms are spacious, and in-room tablets offer information on everything from daily activities to restaurant recommendations.

The Hyatt Zilara has a wide variety of activities — swimming in the resort’s three-level pool, kayaking and surfing. Hyatt Zilara also has a spa for facials,  massages and other treatments (guests can also access the neighboring Ziva’s spa and salon for additional treatments). Zilara and Ziva also share a massive, two-story fitness center.

Zilara even delivers on the food and beverage front, typically not the most exciting part of an all-inclusive property. Petit Pariz is the resort’s fine French restaurant that serves classics like steak tartare and French onion soup. FuZion serves Asian fare, including sushi and sriracha honey-glazed chicken. But this is still an all-inclusive resort: Choicez is where guests go for a wide variety of buffet-style meals during their stay.

Rates at Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall currently start at $724 or 21,000 World of Hyatt points per night.

[roundup-affiliate type=”hotel” capi-id=”8917″ post-id=”1442881″]

A wellness retreat doesn’t always mean you have to deprive yourself. Hyatt’s Miraval brand is known for its resorts in stunning, peaceful locations that are all about wellness but still let you indulge in fine food and wine.

Miraval Austin’s muted elegance makes the surrounding Texas hills the showstopper here, adding to the serene ambiance among the 117 guest rooms. Some include vistas of Lake Travis, and all have a great vantage point of the rolling landscapes of Texas Hill Country.

We loved the tranquil vibes of Miraval’s guest rooms when we checked in, including meditation channels on the television, a Himalayan singing bowl and a walk-in shower with Miraval Zents-branded amenities. A private balcony is a great place to unwind after a full day of treatments and activities.

Miraval draws a glitzy wellness crowd, so we strongly recommend that you book treatments and classes well ahead of your arrival. Nobody should be stressed because they couldn’t get into a Miraval stress solutions class during their stay.

Of course, the Miraval Life in Balance Spa is another way to relax beyond meditation classes. We love the 75-minute Abundance body renewal ritual that comes with a Hawaiian noni-and-lime scrub and spirulina body clay — all polished off with oils to really make the body glow.

Miraval is also renowned for its healthy cuisine. Hilltop Crossings is the property’s main restaurant, where you can sample creations like Thai lettuce wraps, hempseed meatballs or sirloin from Texas’ own 44 Farms.

 Rates at Miraval Austin currently start at $1,390, or 57,000 World of Hyatt points, per night (based on double occupancy and includes all meals, snacks and nonalcoholic beverages as well as a $175 nightly resort credit to go toward spa treatments, fee-based activities or sessions with a Miraval wellness specialist).

Whenever you talk to a TPG staff member who has stayed at the Park Hyatt Saigon, they often reply with some version of, “There is exemplary hotel service, and then there is the Park Hyatt Saigon.” 

This tony hotel in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, is within walking distance from some of the city’s most popular attractions like the Reunification Palace and the Opera House. 

However, the outdoor pool on the hotel’s third-floor terrace, decadent Vietnamese clay pot cuisine at Square One or cocktails and live music in the Park Lounge make the Park Hyatt Saigon a destination unto itself.

Hyatt Globalist members (or travelers booking via American Express Fine Hotels + Resorts) get access to free breakfast each morning at Opera, the Park Hyatt’s Italian restaurant, which is considered one of the best breakfast spreads in Asia.

The hotel is immaculate, from the floral arrangements in the lobby and the polished wooden floors to outdoor spaces like the pool nestled among the hotel’s garden. Rooms feature a more classical look than some newer Park Hyatt hotels, but they are nonetheless stunning with crisp sheets, palatial bathrooms and, in larger rooms, private terraces.

Rates at the Park Hyatt Saigon currently start at $245, or 15,000 World of Hyatt points, per night.

It’s highly unlikely Ina Garten will invite any of us to her Hamptons abode for a weekend getaway anytime soon. Topping Rose House is a close alternative, though.

Near Bridgehampton’s galleries, shops and restaurants and with the beach just a bike ride away, this hotel feels like your home away from home for a weekend.

Guest rooms feature cozy decor with earth tones, some with a fireplace and views of the pool or surrounding orchard. If you land in a suite, you might find vaulted ceilings. Book the Small Luxury Hotels of the World property through World of Hyatt since the partnership offers a one-category room upgrade based on availability, though we’ve lucked out with a two-category boost.

The main house might date back to the 19th century, but there’s also a much more recent expansion that features modern rooms akin to what you’d find in any resort area. 

Jean Georges at Topping House is a relaxing spot to sample stellar cuisine in laid-back (albeit chic) Hamptons fashion. Try and snag one of the farm tables outside for alfresco feasting on treats like East Coast oysters or a 28-day, dry-aged ribeye. Topping Rose’s Bar & Lounge is another option for guests looking to kick back with a cocktail — or even a glass of Topping Rose Rosé.

As Ina would say: Isn’t that great?

Rates at Topping Rose House currently start at $1,795, or 35,000 World of Hyatt points, per night in June and rise to $2,495, or 40,000 World of Hyatt points, per night in July and August.

It’s hard to accept you’re leaving Las Vegas after a stay at Aria. No, really.

 The resort, housed in a striking glass tower, is massive, yet it feels like a cozy oasis thanks to highly attentive staff members who tend to guests carefully from check-in to checkout. 

Spacious rooms with incredible views of the Las Vegas Strip await upstairs, and bathrooms boast a hefty amount of elbow room, walk-in showers and luxe finishes. We particularly love how you can power down all the lights in the room with a push of a bedside button — a nice thing to have (on top of the plush bedding) after one of those infamous nights out in Vegas. 

Looking for a wow factor? Book a corner Strip-view suite. It’s double the size of a regular guest room and features a great vantage point of all the action up and down the Las Vegas Strip. 

The casino is smoke-free and adjoins the neighboring Shops at Crystals, a popular shopping complex. There you’ll find brands like Louis Vuitton, Dior and Gucci — a perfect way to spend your jackpot.

As for dining, there are savory steamed dumplings and noodles at Din Tai Fung and Aria’s Taiwanese restaurant, among other options. A massage at the Spa at Aria — another massive facility that somehow feels like an exclusive affair in the middle of Sin City.

Aria’s pool area isn’t as raucous as some of the more pool party-focused venues in Las Vegas. However, it’s still a fun spot to soak in the sun or have poolside cocktail service from the nearby Pool Bar. At night, we’re fond of the French fare at chef Michal Mina’s Bardot Brasserie or Italian at New York favorite Carbone.

Rates at Aria Resort & Casino currently start at $481, or 25,000 World of Hyatt points, per night.
