Hyatt launches The Great Relocate

After a turbulent year of cancelled travel plans, 2021 can be the year it’s possible to see more of the world. Hyatt Hotels has launched ‘The Great Relocate,’ a long-stay package to cater to the pent-up desire amongst consumers for travel and longer stays abroad.

The package provides guests, who can work remotely, with a unique way to see new parts of the world, while working and living in the comfort of a Hyatt hotel. The offer is open to World of Hyatt members, with stays eligible to contribute towards achieving elite member status.

More than 80 per cent of employers are now said to be expanding offers to their employees to work remotely, after the last year proved many people can work effectively across different postcodes and time zones. This combination of a shift in work patterns and consumers’ pent-up desire for travel, after months of quarantines and travel restrictions, means there is an increasing demand for long stay-travel.  

The Great Relocate offers the change of scenery that so many who have been working from home crave. With spacious guestrooms and suites, refreshing pools, twice weekly housekeeping, private work areas, complimentary gym access, high-speed internet and IT concierge on hand, laundry services, airport or train station pickup and 25 per cent off onsite dining, working remotely can be a breeze. When combined with Hyatt’s highest standards of cleanliness, to ensure the health and wellbeing of guests, all stays are as relaxing and seamless as possible.

“We know there is a strong desire for consumers to travel this year, after many plans were put on hold in 2020,” said Geneviève Materne, Senior Vice President, Commercial Services Europe, Middle East, Southwest Asia. “The pandemic has been a major catalyst for the increase in the ‘work from anywhere’ trend and we know it has accelerated significant shifts in the way we live, work and play. That is why we’ve created The Great Relocate.” 

The Great Relocate is perfect for guests who are looking to swap their spare room for working poolside, trade standing lunches for lunches in rooftop restaurants and cosy cafes, sneaking a pamper session in after a morning meeting, or going for an afternoon swim with their family before dinner. 

Geneviève went on to say, “This is the perfect offer for all the Digital Nomads out there and for those, who define luxury as not being tied to one place. We are making it more affordable than ever to take a long stay in one of our hotels, for a similar amount you would pay for the average city-centre rent. We look forward to welcoming guests, whether they want to relocate on their own, bring their partner, their family or even their pet!”

The offer is valid across Hyatt hotels in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Southwest Asia, providing keen travellers with a plethora of options: from sunshine in Cape Town or Dubai; surfing in Taghazout or visiting city destinations such as Venice without the usual crowds. It’s even possible to get away sustainably through a long-stay at an Alila-branded hotel or resort destination which employ a number of measures to protect the Earth’s natural resources and where properties preserve the heritage and ethos of the location, they are in.

The offer, open to World of Hyatt members, or those who enrol to Hyatt’s loyalty programme on the spot, allows guests to book long stays at Hyatt hotels across the region with prices starting at $1,000 per month, depending on hotel brand, location and room category and is valid for any stay longer than 29 nights up until 31st December 2021 when booked by 3rd December 2021. The package enables all World of Hyatt members to earn points and have the nights count towards elite-tier status.

Packages are available for stays through December 31, 2021 with a minimum stay of 29 nights when you book by December 3, 2021. When you book for two months (60+ nights), you can receive a complimentary one room category upgrade. Book for three months (90+ nights) and you can receive a second room category upgrade.
