Hyatt Hotels Corporation has announced an extension of the World of Hyatt loyalty program to the home sharing accommodation market. Members can now earn and redeem World of Hyatt points with Oasis, a global provider of serviced home rental accommodations that offers more than 2,000 personally vetted homes across more than 20 destinations worldwide.

Oasis combines the comfort and authenticity of a home with hotel-like amenities, including in-person check-in, fresh linens, luxury toiletries, WiFi internet and on-demand concierge services. Additionally, Oasis' global operations expands Hyatt's footprint in many markets where Hyatt is currently underrepresented or not yet represented, including Barcelona, Ibiza, Punta del Este (Uruguay), Rome and Trancoso (Brazil).

Oasis home rentals are part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand, which was designed to be a collection of unique experiences worth sharing, not just hotels. Offering upper-upscale and luxury properties that have distinctive characteristics, rich history, exclusive locations, famous architecture, design and more, The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand now includes hand-picked, quality home rentals with the reassurance that comes from Hyatt.

For stays with a checkout date between March 1, 2018 and June 30, 2018, World of Hyatt members also have the ability to earn 1,000 Bonus Points per qualifying night on top of Base Points earned for stays at Oasis.

"Sometimes our members' travel needs go beyond a hotel, whether it's because they're traveling with a larger group, have a longer stay in mind, need more space or want to stay in a local neighborhood," said Amy Weinberg, senior vice president, World of Hyatt. "This Oasis collaboration is an important step in understanding how we can serve our members in new ways and in new places."
