World of Hyatt members dreaming of an escape in the Caribbean region will find lots of exciting properties where they can earn or redeem their points.

The hotel's award chart makes it easy to see how many points you need for your trip, with hotels and resorts organized by category. World of Hyatt’s all-inclusive properties use a separate award chart; although different, its standard base rates prove helpful in guiding a points budget. Plus, when you redeem World of Hyatt points at a participating hotel, resort fees are waived.

Here are eight Hyatt hotels in the Caribbean worth visiting if you want to earn or redeem World of Hyatt points during your next island getaway.
