Stay at these SPG Resorts with Far Fewer Points

SPG Resorts

Link: Paradise is Closer

I have actually not stayed at any of these SPG resorts (the normal high rates being one reason) but I have heard from many who have and they are some very nice properties! Here are the properties that are on sale with points, as well as their normal points cost and sale cost (per night):

  • W Retreat Koh Samui, Koh Samui, Thailand – Regular: 60,000 points | Sale: 39,000 points
  • The Naka Island, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Phuket – Regular: 40,000 points | Sale: 26,000 points
  • Vana Belle, a Luxury Collection Resort, Koh Samui, Thailand – Regular: 40,000 points | Sale: 26,000 points
  • W Retreat and Spa Maldives, Maldives – Regular: 90,000 points | Sale: 58,500 points
  • The St. Regis Bora Bora Resort, French Polynesia – Regular: 60,000 points | Sale: 39,000 points
  • Le Méridien Bora Bora, French Polynesia – Regular: 40,000 points | Sale: 26,000 points
  • Al Maha Desert Resort & Spa, a Luxury Collection Resort, Dubai, UAE – Regular: 60,000 points | Sale: 39,000 points
  • Mystique, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Santorini, Greece – Regular: 60,000 points | Sale: 39,000 points

Yes, those are all per night costs but with a 35% discount, it could be more in your range!

It Gets Better!

None of these properties are in the US, in fact, most of them are far from the US. This means you will most likely not stay for just a night or two. If you stay 5 nights, then the get 1 night free award kicks in on these sale prices making it an even better deal.

For example, if you were to stay at the Mystique on Santorini for 5 nights, it would cost you a total of 156,000 points – or 31,200 points per night. If you were to stay for 5 nights under the regular rate, it would cost you 240,000 points – or 48,000 points per night.

Unfortunately, to take advantage of this deal with the SPG Resorts on sale, you will have to call in. It is not something that can be done online. The number you will call (for the US desk) is 888-625-4988.
