Optimizing Hotel Stays with Hyatt Prive: How to Get the Elite Experience & Make Yourself a VIP

Ultimate Guide to the Hyatt Prive Program: How to Get the Elite Experience & Make Yourself a VIP 

Hyatt Prive is an exclusive travel advisor only program that was introduced in 2018, enabling select travel agencies to provide unique benefits to their clients who make their Hyatt bookings through them. 

Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa

This program operates similarly to other invitation-only programs such as Marriott STARS, Marriott Luminous, Rosewood Elite Partner, Hilton Impresario, and more. 

Member travel agencies within these programs have the privilege of offering their clients exceptional perks and amenities akin to those enjoyed by travelers with hotel elite status.  And even if you have hotel elite status that unlocks great value-added benefits, Hyatt Prive can still go above and beyond providing special offers and even better value-added benefits (or combine the best of both!).

The Family Travel Guy is a Virtuoso affiliated Travel Advisor and is able to offer Hyatt Prive benefits to clients staying at eligible Hyatt brands.
