Wyndham Rewards traditionally had a flat point redemption for 15,000 points per night. On April 3, 2019, Wyndham Rewards introduced a tiered award chart with different points redemptions per night. Let’s take a look at Wyndham Brands, the new award chart and then the list of all the Wyndham Hotels in Dubai and Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) that are redeemable on Points based on the new award chart.
Wyndham Hotels – Brands
Wyndham has a good mix of 19 brands with over 5 of them spread across UAE.
- Wyndham Grand

Wyndham Rewards – New Award Chart
Wyndham introduced 3 award tiers for points redemptions per night:
- 7,500 Points (or 1,500 Points + Cash)
- 15,000 Points (or 3,000 Points + Cash)
- 30,000 Points (or 6,000 Points + Cash)
As of April 2019, The Points Guy values one Wyndham Reward Point at USD 1.1c / point. We, at The Points Habibi, believe a good valuation in UAE would be at 1c/point.
