Jaunted opened our eyes last week to the party central that is Trinidad and Tobogo when Carnival rolls into town. The festival, which celebrates several religious and cultural events (in the form of nearly naked dancers), takes place this year on February 25 but Trinidad and Tobogo will actually start kicking off the celebrations in a few weeks.

If the debauchery of Mardi Gras in New Orleans has gotten a bit tiresome for you and you can't quite make it to Rio de Janeiro, then this could be the easiest way to try out Carnival. For a safe, reliable choice in Trinidad and a way to earn up to 20,000 bonus loyalty points, consider the new Hyatt Regency.

The Hyatt Regency Trinidad opened last January in the Port of Spain International Waterfront Development. It has pretty much everything that you would expect from a Hyatt Regency hotel--a full-service restaurant, a lobby bar and lounge, a fitness center and a 9,000 square-foot Spa Esencia. While the hotel is not on the beach, its infinity pool does overlook the Gulf of Paria.

Guestroom categories range from deluxe rooms to double rooms and suites, all designed in typical Hyatt "contemporary" fashion. Each room features bamboo floors, frosted-glass showers, Hyatt Grand Beds, LG flat screen 32” televisions, iHome docking stations and both wired and wireless internet.

Those staying on the top three floors of the hotel can access the Hyatt's Regency Club, a private area on the lobby level of the hotel, for concierge service, continental breakfast and evening hors d’oeuvres and cocktails.

The hotel has some pretty great reviews on TripAdvisor with the hotel's service earning several shout-outs. We're also really digging the newness and the clean design of the hotel. At the end of the day, it's still a Hyatt but after all the stuff you will witness at Carnival maybe something predictable is what you will need.

Rates for Carnival are topping out at $359 for a pre-paid internet rate. The regular rate is $10 more. But forget about cramming six of your friends into these rooms for Carnival. The hotel only allows a maximum of three people per room.

Awesome Hotel

I've stayed at the Hyatt Regency Trinidad twice when it first opened.  It was a welcomed changed from the Hilton and Crowne Plaza in Port of Spain.  The Hyatt is unlike any other hotel in Trinidad.  It is truly a spectacular hotel.  The restaurant is great (albeit pricy) with a lot of contintental and local flare.  The pool is gorgeous with unobstructed ocean views. The rooms are large, comfortable, interesting, and attractive and those showers could teach Thompson a thing or two on how to do peek-a-boo showers right!  They even come with a teak bench.  This hotel is definitly worth a trip to Trinidad!

I enjoyed my stay

I really enjoyed my stay at the Hyatt. I would definitely choose to stay at a Hyatt with every vacation I go on. The last vacation I went on I was able to park for way less at luton parking lot at the air port and was able to stay on vacation for a couple more days.
