Hyatt Thailand Launches Flash Sale For Their Local Portfolio, Book Between 28 February – 9 March 2022
Hyatt Hotels & Resorts in Thailand have announced a new flash sale with up to 40% off that will be live for bookings from 28 February – 9 March 2022.
Customers will then be able to stay at Hyatt’s Thailand properties from 1 March – 30 September 2022 under these rates which are inclusive of breakfast as well.
Over the past two years there have been online sales of various forms for Hyatt properties in Thailand with some being available directly at the Hyatt website as normal reservations, others you were able to reserve as vouchers sold online and often packages or individual nights offered at travel fairs held in big shopping malls.
The most recent announcement is a Flash Sale for up to 40% off that is going life on February 28, 2022 according to various posts Hyatt and their local hotels posted on social media.
Here is what the most recent announcement promises:
𝐄𝐱𝐩𝐥𝐨𝐫𝐞 𝐓𝐡𝐚𝐢𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐚𝐭 𝐇𝐲𝐚𝐭𝐭 𝐇𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐥𝐬 𝐅𝐥𝐚𝐬𝐡 𝐒𝐚𝐥𝐞 – an exclusive offer designed for you to explore Bangkok, Hua Hin, Phuket or Koh Samui. Stay tuned for more information on this offer.

The problem with such promotions is that the promises are rarely kept. Well, they say “up to” 40% off which could really mean anything, and then there’s the question of what the discount is based on.
It certainly won’t be 40% off the Best Available Rate (BAR) which is most often a prepaid or member rate. During such promotions, advertised discounts are often based on some rate types that regular leisure travelers would never usually buy such as flex package rates or a rack rate.
In the end, there is really no way to tell if this promo is run in an honest way or not but I went through a few dates to see what the hotels sell for right now on specific dates I want to travel.
I’m particularly interested in traveling to Koh Samui and staying a few nights at the new Hyatt Regency Samui. Maybe I’d book the one or another staycation in Bangkok as well if prices are attractive enough.
If member rates or corporate rates (that are usually flexible) are available at a similar price point then it renders such sales pretty much obsolete and this is something I’ve seen across the board, especially in Thailand and not just with Hyatt. Marriott has also been a major offender in promoting faux sales.
Starting February 28th Hyatt Thailand will run a Flash Sale through the regular website / app where promotional rates will be available at up to 40% discount.
At this point, no prices have been revealed and we have to wait until Monday to see what’s actually available to be booked at attractive prices. I’ll write an update as soon as there is a bit more clarity.
