Hyatt Regency Grand Reserve Puerto Rico is a resort that is not within walking distance of anything unless you have a car. Therefore, your only dining option is to eat and drink at the resort.

Regency Club at Hyatt Regency Guam

The Regency Club at Hyatt Regency Guam exceeded my expectations during my stay as a Globalist (review here). Although Guam is a U.S. territory, it’s greatly influenced by Asia, and therefore, you can expect top-notch Asian hospitality inside the Regency Club. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the food quality is very good. The club lounge also has a liquor bar where you can self-serve and make unlimited alcoholic drinks, all complimentary.

  1. Interesting list. For myself, I like lounges in the Grand Hyatt Singapore, the Hyatt Regency TST in Hong Kong (amazing view and much more happening area than the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong IMO), both the Grand Hyatt and Hyatt Regency in Bali, and the Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur. Good to know about Tampa, although it's a shame that the hotel isn't on the beach.

  2. Hyatt lounges in Asia are pretty solid options. Thank you for sharing with us additional best Hyatt lounges in Asia that will be helpful to others.

  3. Great list, thanks! I just became Globalist and ran a search on google. I live in Seoul and the Grand Hyatt Seoul has a really great club lounge as well. We went there for new year's eve this year. I recently uploaded a video about it onto my channel Points for Pleasure on youtube. Thanks again!

  4. My favorite Hyatt club lounges so far (not on this list) are HR Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan) and HR Guadalajara. Be sure to check these two lounges out too when you are in the area! Bishkek is warm and lovely with a fantastic open bar. HR Guadalajara is brand new, sparkly, huge, indoor and outdoor, with a vast food selection.

  5. I stayed at the Grand Club Lounge at Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego at the end of July 2022. Great lounge, there was enough food in the evening to not need to go buy supper. But beer and wine were not free. They had an honor bar and you were to write down your room number and what you took. Nice article!

  6. Thank you for stopping by and providing the latest offering info at the Grand Hyatt in San Diego. I’ll update the article accordingly.

  7. @Melissa, you are correct. I reached out to both Hyatt and the property, they confirmed that the Grand Club unfortunately is closed indefinitely. I’ll update the post accordingly.

  8. Since Covid (and perhaps worsened by staffing concerns?), it looks like the Hyatt Regency Seattle is only offering dried snacks, water and coffee at this point. Kind of disappointing.

  9. Per Grand Hyatt Fukuoka website: Please note Grand Club Lounge has been closed for renovation until further notice.
