Are there any kosher options at the  Regatta breakfast? fruit? cereal? yogurts?


Grand Hyatts official response from the general manager:


Our globalist breakfast is only served at Regatta, and Regatta does not have any Kosher meals to its menu due to the Rabbi’s lack of bandwidth at this time. Hope this answer’s your question.”

“Yes the Rabbi is a fantastic person who came to us from The Atlantis and helped us with Cinko and now with Knosh, and weddings. I believe the more comfortable he gets and has the staff we will have more outlets.”

There is fruit and cereal. Not sure about yogurt.
They said bagels were parve, but wouldn't show us packaging.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

And yet - places without a kosher restaurant on property are able to figure it out.

I went this morning. There's pretty much absolutely nothing for us to take. I was able to get iced coffees which are absolutely horrible. I asked for some sort of a to go container to take some fruit with me, but they told me you cannot take anything out of the restaurant except for coffee. Even if they showed me the packaging for the cereal or the bagels, you have nothing to eat it on and the restaurant because everything is on there non kosher ceramic plates. I didn't see any plastic where, so even if they gave you a bagel, you don't have a knife to spread the cream cheese on. Unless you're willing to make a whole scene and speak to the manager and ask for them to at least give you some cereal and milk to go back to your room with, there is no real food benefit for globalist

I add them on to a reservation in my name, or I can book in their name with points from my account?

Awesome!
Any Globalist credit for breakfast there?

"The Globalist breakfast benefit is offered only at Hyatt’s primary full service breakfast location- Regatta Buffet.  Specialty restaurants and non-Hyatt managed restaurants across the Baha Mar resort are not eligible.  There are system and operational limitations in offering more than one restaurant for this benefit.  Regatta was chosen to provide the broadest appeal as it is by far the most popular among our guests for breakfast.
Hoping this information helps!"

i used bahtours. you can arrange through viator (a trip advisor company) but its a little more expensive or can contact direct @ +1 (242) 808-7584 (whats app too)
i prepaid via paypal/amex (lower price direct) with a little hesitation but all worked out. agent was waiting outside with name on sign and vehicle arrived promptly. nothing fancy.
i tried scheduling for return but never got the link to prepay and ended up getting an suv from hyatt concierge.

Does GH have connecting rooms?
Otherwise the alternative is to book two rooms and ask them to provide a suite instead?
