Isn't that just typical resort fees?

3-400/night? Never seen that before.

Resort fees waived for Globalist. There is a mandatory seaplane ride from the airport at $500/head. I paid more to upgrade into an overwater bungalow.

Helpful point about fees, M1! Were you able to use points to upgrade to bungalow or had to pay cash? How many Hyatt points a night are you seeing OP?

It cost 25k points for the basic room, and i think I paid around $500/night to upgrade to the water villa, cannot use points, which is def worth it.
