Why is no one talking about the W Retreat & Spa? 30k SPG points per night.

Yeah, I called them before and that's what they say  :( WTH do I care that they don't have standard rooms? Its a cat 7 and they should give me the lowest available room for 30k! Hyatt did not come up with this Kup Shtick...

.....moving on. Looking into the Conrad now, I was not in the mood of doing an AOR now, but hey, it will be just $350 p/ night...

One other option is the Anantara Veli (for 4k all inclusive, OWB with pool) but no one her seems to be exited with that so.....

Probably the most ridiculous thing about the program.

High ADRs compel the 30K price tag. But the rates are high at least partially because it's a "special" property, yet because it's a "special" property, they double the award cost to 60K+. So you pay once for the ADR, and then you pay again for what causes the ADR  :o ::)

Personally, I think you should go with a top hotel and do an AOR for you and DW. Pay for the hotel out of pocket, besides the points go thru a CB website and youll make a few dollards back. At the same time ur AOR points will pay off the hotel and then some. Do 2 SP, 2 UMPE, 2 BA, 4 inks, 2 SPG, 2 BRG, 2 plat.
If you have any questions please search and then ask. PM me for detailed help.
