A free stay at the famous Miraval Arizona? Yep, here’s how. In January Hyatt acquired the Miraval Group, known worldwide for their wellness resorts. But the marriage (into the World of Hyatt loyalty program) wasn’t official until today. You can now earn and use Hyatt points at Miraval.
I’m pretty excited about this because I’ve always wanted to stay at Miraval Arizona Resort & Spa. When the boys were little I would go on getaway weekends at the Red Mountain Resort and Spa. For a mom with two boys, that was heaven! And Miraval Arizona is so much more luxurious!!
Keep reading to learn everything you need to know about how to earn and use Hyatt points at Miraval.
Earn and Use Hyatt Points at Miraval
After Hyatt bought Miraval it was only a matter of time before Miraval joined the World of Hyatt loyalty program. And today’s the day!
Miraval has two resorts: Miraval Arizona Resort & Spa and Miraval Life and Balance Spa in Monarch Beach Resort. The Miraval Arizona is an adult only resort while the Miraval Monarch Beach is family-friendly.
Starting today the Miraval Arizona Resort & Spa is part of the World of Hyatt loyalty program. So all those Hyatt points you’ve been stocking up for a unique experience now’s your chance.
There’s no word yet when the Monarch Beach Resort joins the World of Hyatt loyalty program.
And when you stay at Miraval Arizona Resort & Spa you’ll earn 5 Hyatt points per dollar spent! But you won’t have to spend much while you’re there. Because you get unlimited meals, snacks, non-alcoholic beverages, over 120 activities and classes. Plus you get free transportation from the airport. Or free valet parking if you drive.
Pro-tip: Stays at Miraval count towards the Category 1 to 4 free night award for staying at 5 different Hyatt brands.
How Many Points Do You Need?
Miraval, a world famous all-inclusive resort, has its own category. You need a lot of Hyatt points to stay at Miraval Arizona Resort & Spa. But you get a $175 resort credit per person per day.
Here’s how many points you’ll need:
- Standard Room: 45,000 points / 65,000 points (single/double occupancy)
- Suite: 75,000 points / 95,000 points (single/double occupancy)
Pro-tip: You can’t redeem Hyatt points towards dining, spa, or more awards at Miraval.
Can 4 People Share a Room?
Some rooms at Miraval can accommodate four people. But, the award chart doesn’t show an option for to have more than two people in a room as it does for the other all-inclusive resorts like Hyatt Ziva. I’m waiting to hear back from Hyatt to confirm if you can use points for up to four people in a room.
Update: Per Hyatt, the maximum occupancy is 2 when using Hyatt points to stay at Miraval.
You can use points+cash to stay at Miraval Arizona Resort & Spa. But Points+Cash is only available for standard rooms and not available for suites.
Standard Room: 22,500 points + $450 / 32,500 points + $550 (single/double occupancy)
Free Night Awards That You Can’t Use at Miraval
While you can use the two free nights from the Hyatt credit card to stay at Miraval, you can’t use:

- Category 1 to 7 free night award for Lifetime Globalists
Elite Benefits & Suite Upgrades
If you’re a Globalist, will you get 4 pm late checkout, early check-in, and suite upgrades? I’m not sure yet. I’m waiting to hear back from Hyatt and the website is unclear.
Update from Hyatt: Most of the elite World of Hyatt benefits apply including 4 pm late checkout (subject to availability) and free upgrades to standard suites (if available).
And yes, you can use a Globalist suite upgrade to upgrade from a standard room to a suite!
Miraval has their own loyalty program, Authentic Circle. Benefits of Authentic Circle include a free one night stay after seven paid nights and a $100 resort credit. You become a member after four qualifying stays or being a Miraval Villa Owner.
Earn Credit in Authentic Circle and Hyatt Points
You can earn credit in Authentic Circle and Hyatt points. This is how it works with Mlife. You earn Hyatt points and Mlife tier credits when you stay at participating Mlife resorts. But I’m waiting for confirmation from Hyatt.
