There is nothing quite like an all-inclusive vacation, where your room, meals and sometimes even posh spa treatments are all bundled into one flat rate. Nothing better, that is, except for maybe an all-inclusive vacation paid for entirely with points. Fortunately, that can be a reality. Here are six all-inclusives you can book this winter with points.
1. Miraval Austin Resort & Spa, Austin, Texas
This beautiful property on Lake Austin offers the best of both worlds: Complete relaxation during the day and a vibrant music scene if you venture into the city at night. You can kayak on the lake, join in on yoga or meditation sessions, get pampered at the full-service spa, take a culinary class or climb to new heights on the challenge course.
Miraval is an all-inclusive experience, and you can expect credits toward complimentary spa access, a variety of workshops and activities and meals for the price of your stay. These benefits are limited to up to $175 per person.
Standard rooms start at 45,000 points per night for single occupancy. You’ll need 20,000 points for each additional guest. To redeem points, call Hyatt reservations.
2. Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa, Montego Bay, Jamaica
If you want an all-inclusive beachfront vacation, look no further than the Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Drinks, gourmet cuisine and water park access are all included, plus children under 5 stay and eat free.
You can book the Hilton Rose Hall starting at 45,000 points for one adult per room per night and 56,000 points per night for two adults.
