Hyatt Hotels and Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) are joining hands to allow members of the World of Hyatt loyalty programme to earn and redeem points during stays at participating SLH hotels.
Scheduled for launch at the end of the year, the loyalty alliance will apply only to bookings made via Hyatt channels.
Mark Hoplamazian, president and CEO of Hyatt, said: “Our members will soon be able to earn and redeem World of Hyatt points in more places, including many new locations in Europe and Asia.”
Filip Boyen, CEO of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, foresees the partnership will help boost occupancy at SLH hotels given their exposure to the World of Hyatt programme’s more than 10 million members.
Hyatt has 700 properties worldwide, while SLH’s collection counts over 500 independently owned hotels.
