Hyatt has announced that it has added Oasis, its fully-serviced home rentals platform, to its year-old World of Hyatt loyalty programme, which has more than 10 million active members.
Oasis’ more than 2,000 homes across 20 destinations globally are now available for members to earn and spend loyalty points, making Hyatt the first hotel chain after Wyndham did the same to allow loyalty members access to their vacation rentals. AccorHotels is yet to open its LeClub AccorHotels to its onefinestay properties, while Airbnb is looking to move the other way, creating its Superguest loyalty programme this summer.
Oasis offers accommodations in places where Hyatt’s 719 hotels are underrepresented or non-existent, including popular destinations such as Barcelona, Ibiza and Rome. It is understood Hyatt will be targeting the cosporate market as well as leisure, as more business travellers increasingly seek a home-from-home environment and are looking for a regulated, serviced management rather than random homestay.
