  1. Hi, I’ve booked a stay with my wife n 2 yr old at Grand Hyatt Bali in December at member price for 5 days, this doesn’t include the daily buffet breakfast. As I don’t have any points now, and seems the breakfast is USD29 per pax per day, could I buy Hyatt points to save on the dining? TIA

    Reply
    • Hi, you cannot pay for breakfast using points but you can book a club access room from as little as 5.5k points. this would include breakfast and light dinner.
