Today I saw a tweet from SPG that reminded me about a promotion that I haven’t yet written about that at least deserves a mention. The promotion awards 35% off SPG point redemptions at participating SPG resort properties until March 8, 2016. That sounds amazing, and it is for some people, but I want to warn you up-front that these are properties that are very pricey on points. So, 35% off brings them down from somewhere between insanely pricey and very pricey to very pricey and pricey.
That said, a couple of the properties aren’t that bad per night if you are able to stay five nights and factor in the last award night free on five night award stays. For example, the Naka Island property would drop to a per night price of 20,800 points via the 35% points discount + last award night free on a five night stay. That’s a lot of SPG points, but within the realm of doable for some.
The participating properties are:
- W Retreat Koh Samui, Koh Samui, Thailand
- The Naka Island, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Phuket, Thailand
- Vana Belle, a Luxury Collection Resort, Koh Samui, Thailand
