Hyatt Gold Passport Diamond members have had a choice of 1000 bonus points or food and beverage amenity (usually cheese plate & bottle of wine) at Hyatt properties in North America. Internationally there has not been a choice, however. You were offered food and beverage amenity that could be as little as three apples or couple of bananas. I wrote last week that this is apparently changing unannounced, as international properties had started to offer the same amenity choice.
Now, Hyatt Gold Passport have made the above announcement on a FlyerTalk post. All international properties must offer a choice between a 1000 bonus points or food and beverage amenity.
