World of Hyatt Elevates Luxury Portfolio

The hotelier boosts incentive travel options with Mr & Mrs Smith Collection

Hyatt Hotels Corporation announces that World of Hyatt just expanded its program offerings, adding over 700 unique and luxurious hotels and villas to its portfolio. This exciting development comes through Hyatt’s acquisition of Mr & Mrs Smith, a curated collection of boutique and luxury travel experiences.

Incentive travel programs can incorporate a wider range of destinations and properties. From secluded treehouse retreats in Finland to grand palazzos in new countries like Namibia and Fiji, Mr & Mrs Smith offers unique and personalized experiences that will leave a lasting impression on your high-achieving award winners.

World of Hyatt’s expanded portfolio provides more options to tailor incentive trips to specific award winner preferences.
Unique and Personalized Experiences: Mr & Mrs Smith properties are known for their distinctive character and personalized service, making them ideal for creating truly memorable trips.
Reward Potential: World of Hyatt points allow your clients to further personalize their travel experiences or save towards future adventures.

“Our members truly value World of Hyatt, and we’re always looking for new ways to engage guests, help them get the most out of their travels and reward them for experiencing what the world has to offer – from cozying up in a secluded treehouse in the Arctic Circle, reigning over an English country manor, glamping under starry desert skies or going wild in a jungle villa perched above Pacific waters,” said Amy Weinberg, senior vice president, brand, loyalty and data, Hyatt. “True to our Be More Here platform, the addition of hundreds of hotels and villas, hand-selected by Mr & Mrs Smith, helps Hyatt welcome even more members in new destinations and deliver on our guests’ desires to have truly meaningful experiences when they travel.”

“The integration of so many Mr & Mrs Smith hotels into the World of Hyatt gives us the opportunity to expand our reach to new audiences while sustaining our thoughtful curation standards,” shared Tamara Lohan, co-founder and chief executive officer, Mr & Mrs Smith. “Becoming a part of the Mr & Mrs Smith collection happens by invitation-only and after rigorous, anonymous reviewing, so guests know when they visit a Mr & Mrs Smith property, they will experience something one-of-a-kind with unparalleled design, ambience and understated luxury.”
