Sunjae Sharma, Vice President, Operations, Hyatt India remarked, “Devised after careful research, Hyatt Dining Club is an easy-to-use program, especially crafted for Hyatt guests in India. We understand that guests value benefits that go beyond in-hotel experiences and dining, and as a result Hyatt Dining Club seamlessly weaves restaurants offerings at Hyatt hotels with exclusive lifestyle experiences, through in-hotel services and third-party deals. We are extremely grateful to PVR Cinemas, Xoxoday and Paytm for collaborating with us.”
The research (both qualitative & quantitative) conducted by Coral Research Services and Kantar IMRB indicates that consistency across outlets is an important factor for guests. The survey conducted by Hyatt and Kantar IMRB involved 60+ focus groups and depth interviews across key cities in India and quantitative research with 700+ customers. The research surveyed working men and women aged 26-55, belonging to SECC A1 & A, who are members of airline and hotel programs, and dine out at least twice a month.
The research highlighted that members seek benefits which add value to their complete stay or dining experience, by going beyond restaurant and in-hotel elements. It also found that guests possess a desire for customization, building a relationship and a preference for rewards over discounts. Taking into account these insights, Hyatt Dining Club is crafted to address guest preferences to meet each person’s individual needs.
With an annual fee, members of Hyatt Dining Club can avail various benefits and discounts at all Hyatt hotels across India. The program also provides a free trial that allows members to experience select dining benefits.
