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 Rewards – New Award Chart

Wyndham introduced 3 award tiers for points redemptions per night:

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.
