Worlds most exclusive resort soon opens up to loyalty. Save 6500 Eur per night!

Marriott introduces its new rewards pricing tomorrow. Premium top of range properties go up from 60,000 points to 100,000 points per night in peak. As mentioned previously, one can forward book on ‘credit’ needing the full points a week before check in but do take note some properties have been holding fees for award bookings in the future.

Previously on traveloyalty.com we reviewed The most outrageous, phenomenal and biggest hotel suite in the world at one of the worlds most famous hotels which bring us on to our main topic:

The worlds most sought after – royalty worthy – outrageously exclusive resort.

——————————————————————————————————————–

Hello North Island, Seychelles.

Note: (not to be confused with North Sentinel Island in the Indian ocean..)

——————————————————————————————————————–

Breaking news is that its joining Marriott’s Luxury Collection brand portfolio soon. I presume this has been kept until after the category 8 sets in as the standard cash rates at this exclusive island goes for a whopping Euro 6500 – 10,000 per night ( about Zar 105,000 to 160,000 per night!)

This is the Island you may recall that Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton spent their honeymoon at, so did George + Amal Clooney and other holiday makers included Brad Pitt + Angelina Jolie.

Return to the Blue Lagoon memoirs?

I’ve visited Seychelles 3rd largest island affectionately known as Silhouette island that houses Hilton Labriz a few times, it lies just across North Island and to this day remains the most stunning and intriguing islands I’ve been to of all worldwide. No ways? Hear me out: I know I post plenttyyy of Maldives trips on social media especially surfing and many times including foodie.
However unlike Maldives, Silhouette island has a mountain one can hike over for 3 hours +, you could even get lost and will need a search party to find you hence needing permission to wander into the jungle prior. There are Arabian Pirate graveyards on the other end, legend has it there’s heaps of buried / hidden pirate treasure on this island worth billions of dollars, once myself and family adventured into the wilderness and we found some guests with metal detectors scouting the sand on other sides.

Silhouette Island at most parts has that.. how can I say, Johnny Castaway / Robinson Crusoe type feeling, lost in another world, like you the only humans around and this lasts for hours and hours when you explore, this is really hard to find at other places that holds a world class branded hotel group that one can stay for free at by redeeming points (with vip perks).

Personally after spending heaps of time ( scoring free stopover trips) in the Seychelles I’d say Silhouette Island is way better than the more famous and in demand (+whew crowded) La Digue Island as well as Praslin Island, dont get me wrong I agree that these 2 islands have many of the worlds top 10 beaches but the mere over crowd factor doesn’t tick off all the boxes, kind of the same way crowded Antalya vs exclusive Bodrum in Turkey does.

I would assume North Island although much smaller in size( 10x to be exact) to have a similar feel if not better, there are double the amount of staff as guests on this island that has only 10 Presidential villas and 1 exclusive Villa North Island in the category above (yep this is the 10k one in Euro)

Its all inclusive resort:including mini bar and room snacks that has jars and jars of goodies so lets hope they include it in the award pricing and not ping pong about Al Maha style. Speaking of awards, I’m sure there wont be much availability once it loads given the small amount of accommodation.

Getting there: its a very short helicopter flight from Mahe, I have seen boats service the island as well that should take 55 mins from the jetty in Mahe.

Activities: Everything you could expect on a island from hill top picnics to fishing, this ocean stretch has been my favourite to fish in, I’ve caught heaps of Tuna, Job fish, Snapper and many others. Don’t miss doing this.

Seychelles fishing is world class, the first tip is reel in fast or risk half if not more of your catch being bitten off by something bigger !

Between a rock and a hard place: is where most Marriott Bonvoy Elites will be tonight, book at the premium resorts such as St. Regis Vommuli Maldives or St. Regis New York or Luxury Collection Al Maha UAE?? or keep the points in anticipation for scoring North Island with 5th night free for 400,000 Bonvoy points, thats if they don’t decide to pull a “Waldorf Astoria Maldives” redemption on us…

No one around not even a foot print should be your forte in your 2019 travels.

IHG Pointbreaks to May 31st, 2019+ Hilton Apac promo + Hyatt promo + Marriott SA promo

Tip for scoring in travels:

A common tip I use when travelling is using points for free stays (this way there’s no taxes) on the first night or the last night or both at certain destinations especially airport hotels or hotels that offer a free airport shuttle. Airport hotels are often way cheaper using points even if you had to buy them.

If you into scoring premium hotels or the best hotels in your destination you would know it makes zero sense to check in for your full stay if you arriving at night (and subsequently missing the whole day for premium cash rates or even premium points rates that you would or could have otherwise scored with a early check in), the same goes with early morning flights = early morning check outs, similar procedure, check out your premium hotel late and on to your ‘budget hotel’ check in near airport for next days flight.

Some of my favourite savings I’ve had on low points are Hilton Bali Nagurah Rai for 5000 points, Four Points Sheraton Kenya Airport for 17000 points, heaps of Proteas at 7500 points especially for transits, heaps of all brands throughout USA, Crowne Plaza Changi Singapore for 40k points (heavy I know but the cash rates were even more crazy) and Holiday Inn Mauritius scored for 5000 points on pointbreaks previously, usually only 15000 points per night pictured below.

If you followed my road trip through Florida on Instagram last year, you could fly into Orlando and do Disney and all the rest, Nasa Space Centre, Lego Land, Fort Lauderdale and fly out of Miami and make use of the airport hotel on Pointbreaks for 5000 points.

Promos + Business Airfares + taking up the biggest score

1. Marriott Bonvoy Promo.

Marriott’s first promo is set to launch which might include a Megabonus for some.

  • Earn double elite night credit for every 2 nights.
  • Now get even more. Earn:
    • 10,000 bonus points when you stay at 10 brands.
    • 29,000 bonus points when you stay at 29 brands.

Access the offer HERE. / or log into promotion central soon as the promo goes live.

Many have asked me whats the best they can do with the heaps of Marriott points earned from my advice prior to their merger. 

Answer:

almaha.jpg

Rates: 6700 aed per night ++. Al Maha is a ultra luxury Oasis in the desert of the UAE. Using points its only 60,000 per night + 5th night free making it 240k for 5 nights.

AL maha2.jpg

It gets even better: Marriott Rewards have included All Inclusive even on points rate, as well as activities. There was a time when it was $1000 per person.

Previously Rates were:

168AED per person for breakfast

273AED per person for lunch

515AED per person for dinner

270AED per person per activity

AL Maha ( and other premium properties) goes up to Catergory 8 next month needing almost double the amount of points. The best part is book it now prior to the increase on credit and have the points 7 days before check in.

Bottom Line:

This is definitely the biggest score for a free stay to the tune of R130,000 + that was super easily obtainable.

2.  Business Class for R6500.

Kenyan Airways has a really good deal from Johannesburg to Mauritius ( there are other destinations thats higher priced ) for R6500 in Business Class. All other Ota’s are showing economy for a similar fare + Skyscanner and Matrix wont pick this up as per tips below.

KQ2xBC.jpg

Tips:

Use a pc to get on Kenyan Airways website.

Search 2 Adults or 2 Adults+2 Kids at most.

Check the flights on the different days, most will have the new Dreamliner’s B787 Out Jnb with excellent Lie flat.

Update: Out of Cape Town its R6220 however its on the old 737 planes..

3.  Radisson Rewards Travel Further. 120k bonus points.

Ends 31st March, 2019

Access the offer HERE.

4. Hyatt buy points +30% bonus.

Marriott Bonvoy + Hilton promos + IHG promos + Royal Suite Conrad Makkah.

1.  Marriott BONVoY launching.

The new name for the Marriott Rewards program launching on Feb’13th. I’ve advised many a time via social media / newsletters that personally I’ve put 80% of my 2017/2018 stays into the Marriott Rewards/SPG/Ritz Carlton Brands. The results are stellar especially now that Marriott has decided to keep the standard award points until March ( and not Dec 31st 2018 as initially forecasted).

See my recent stays and scores through St. Regis Miami, St. Regis Bangkok, Luxury Collection Bodrum, Sheraton Maldives and more on Instagram.

If you thought 2014 was great and were blown away by the merger in 2017 wait till you taste what lies ahead in 2019-2020..

What does this mean?

Readers can now still use their Platinum Elite Status and Reward points to book all the cream of the crop brands and properties for a mere 48,000 points per night ( incl 5th night free). Some properties needed 270,000 points per night prior! Time to save hundred thousands of bucks in 2019 has just got a lifeline. Take advantage asap.

Also,

One can book bulk of stays ahead without the full points or any points in account as Marriott is the only hotel brand that one can book on credit up to a week of check in using points.

Even better:

These premium all suite properties including the all inclusive ones can be had on the highly discounted points rate.

Still better:

As Marriott (formerly a SPG perk) is the only program that gives a 25% bonus on transfers of points to airline miles, all those premium 1st and business class upgrades you’ve seen on my posts and Instagram are still easier than ever.

Yes it was 270,000 points per night, now we getting it at 48,000 per night.

Access Bonvoy’s update  HERE.

 

2.  Hilton Promos:

2.1  Points Unlimited January 4th – May 5th 2019

The Points Unlimited promotion is back!  Get 2,000 Bonus Points per stay, plus 10,000 Bonus Points every 5 stays or 10 nights (whichever comes first) from January 4 – May 5. Register asap.

points unlimited

2.2  Honors Buy points 100% bonus.

Ends February 26, 2019.

4. The Royal Suite of Conrad Makkah

Comes with its own massage chair. A first.

If you have been following my updates on travels on Instagram you would have seen we have currently done reviews of premium suites that are off the chart. Below is Conrad Makkah.

The size of this pad vs the other neighbouring rooms.

Located at the top of the hotel, at 247 sq. m. This amazing suite features two bedrooms with king and 2 queen-sized beds, as well as a separate lounge and a dining area with kitchen + the family essential = 2 full bathrooms, non of their other suites or rooms have this.

The front door at the end of the passage.

The front door once inside.

 

 

 

As usual in most suites one finds a guest bathroom upon entry.

 

Bedroom 1

The King Bedroom

Bedroom 2

Has 2 Queen beds.

Plenty of seating options.

8 seater dining room.

I think everyone who has visited Conrad Makkah has made good use of the two red leather (actually one now) chairs downstairs in the executive lounge.

Full kitchen.

With just about every tried and tested room and suite inventory in most of the premium hotels in the city, Traveloyalty can advise on every need for most travellers especially families.

IHG Pointbreaks + Book Ramadhaan 2019 free on points+ Trip through Miami’s finest hotels FREE + the most hyped hotel yet.

1. Umrah Ramadhaan on points – Book now.

Points have been open for 2 weeks so for those planning Ramadhaan grab the availability now.

Via my Instagram posts which included screenshots and dates of flying in for R5800 with Turkey in the mix is the best at the moment. Check it out.

Last 10 Nights Ramadhaan bookings are open.

Using points will save you almost Zar 170k thats about the same as our posts have shown each year since 2012. Remember these are room rates that can accommodate most families.
The night by night rate shows a blackout in last 5 nights as usual, however using points from a few days before bypasses this to get the booking confirmation.
Plan to stay in the Kingdom after Eid? The points rates drop more than 50-70% and the cash rates go down 10x less!
Flying in:
Use my previous post to Turkey via Jeddah, Skyscanner app has Multi City now so its easier to check dates, it might even be cheaper doing Turkey later with the Inbound. There could even be more savings, some OTA’s are offering discount codes today. For Business class, cash economy flex tickets + under 40k miles per way with get the upgrade on Middle East airliners.
Using Star Alliance miles via Cai or Add is another saving option.
Also:
Other hotel brands have similar blessings in using points, Sheraton and Marriott ( this one used to be 20k pn on points previous years) are 35k pn (140k with 5th night free). Per night thats still only 12k Starpoints! ( former SPG point currency). #ultimate

 

 

2. Doing Miami’s finest suites in finest hotels free on points.

St. Regis – Ritz Carlton – W South Beach.

 

Access the trip HERE.

In 2017 trips, St. Regis Kuala Lampur grabbed my Suite of the year award. This current year 2019 (thus far) its again St. Regis, located in Miami Bal Harbour.

3. Disney’s Star Wars hotel. The HYPE has begun.

I took this pic below during March 2018 trip ( prior to Miami ) at the Hollywood Studios of Disney World in Orlando Florida, I just knew something astronomically big was about to unfold.

 

When I read about this in the media last year I emailed The Disney Concierge that organised our park tickets and found out that its only coming up in 2019. Sure enough here we are at the end of 2018 and I don’t think I have ever seen such HYPE for a hotel, the last I saw this much excitement would have been Atlantis the Palm, Dubai opening about a decade ago.

This HYPE is so big that USA based travel bloggers have gone to extraordinary lengths to publish plans, engineer permits and project drawings that they obtained from the Florida Municipalities and Departments of Environmental Protection.. I have truly never seen this happen before. 

Its a fairly small hotel with 600 rooms and rates will prob cost as one commentator put it ‘cost a kidney’ however the blessings of miles and points should be able to offset this.

I can vouch the very best theme ride ever experienced was the Disney World Hong Kong’s Hyper Space Mountain one during July/August 2018. I’m sure they will have similar if not better ones at the Disney Galaxy Edge in Orlando.

Check into a Star Wars themed hotel that will take the shape of a different planet far far away complete with droids, light sabers and intergalactic rides.

Disney Hollywood Studios 2019 in your plans yet?

Hilton sale – book now + Hyatt points sale plus my take on changes.

 

1. The Hilton Sale.

Book by January 31st, 2019. Stays to be completed on weekends between November 2nd 2018 and May 29th, 2019

 

Access our Hilton page HERE

 

2. Hyatt buy points. My take and update.

Up to 40% bonus. Ends November 27th, 2018.

This might only make sense for redemption at premium Hyatt properties on points rates alone as Hyatt has devalued their points + cash rates drastically on 1 Nov.

What was the worlds premium and best hotel chain for elites to burn points has suddenly hit a complete 180, however one thing unique is that one can use double the points per night for a confirmed premium suite booking, the type of suite is yet to be clarified from hotel to hotel…

I’ve recently had the opportunity of sitting down with Hyatt’s Vice President of Development and cited these concerns on the back track where other brands are pushing perks forward, he cited what many – a – Hyatt hotel manager has mentioned to me in this year “WOH is all about exclusivity and rewarding its top members”.  I still maintain if Hyatt continued to successfully bid for SPG and kept their previous loyalty program: Gold Passport they would be untouchable.

Remember those not so far aback days we could use a mere 6000 points and confirm a premium suite on booking per 4 nights. Try that now on the new points+cash rate…

Get more rewards sooner. Purchase 10,000 points or more and earn 40% more Bonus Points through November 27. Terms apply.

Worlds most exclusive resort soon opens up to loyalty. Save 6500 Eur per night!

Marriott introduces its new rewards pricing tomorrow. Premium top of range properties go up from 60,000 points to 100,000 points per night in peak. As mentioned previously, one can forward book on ‘credit’ needing the full points a week before check in but do take note some properties have been holding fees for award bookings in the future.

Previously on traveloyalty.com we reviewed The most outrageous, phenomenal and biggest hotel suite in the world at one of the worlds most famous hotels which bring us on to our main topic:

The worlds most sought after – royalty worthy – outrageously exclusive resort.

——————————————————————————————————————–

Hello North Island, Seychelles.

Note: (not to be confused with North Sentinel Island in the Indian ocean..)

——————————————————————————————————————–

Breaking news is that its joining Marriott’s Luxury Collection brand portfolio soon. I presume this has been kept until after the category 8 sets in as the standard cash rates at this exclusive island goes for a whopping Euro 6500 – 10,000 per night ( about Zar 105,000 to 160,000 per night!)

This is the Island you may recall that Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William and Kate Middleton spent their honeymoon at, so did George + Amal Clooney and other holiday makers included Brad Pitt + Angelina Jolie.

Return to the Blue Lagoon memoirs?

I’ve visited Seychelles 3rd largest island affectionately known as Silhouette island that houses Hilton Labriz a few times, it lies just across North Island and to this day remains the most stunning and intriguing islands I’ve been to of all worldwide. No ways? Hear me out: I know I post plenttyyy of Maldives trips on social media especially surfing and many times including foodie.
However unlike Maldives, Silhouette island has a mountain one can hike over for 3 hours +, you could even get lost and will need a search party to find you hence needing permission to wander into the jungle prior. There are Arabian Pirate graveyards on the other end, legend has it there’s heaps of buried / hidden pirate treasure on this island worth billions of dollars, once myself and family adventured into the wilderness and we found some guests with metal detectors scouting the sand on other sides.

Silhouette Island at most parts has that.. how can I say, Johnny Castaway / Robinson Crusoe type feeling, lost in another world, like you the only humans around and this lasts for hours and hours when you explore, this is really hard to find at other places that holds a world class branded hotel group that one can stay for free at by redeeming points (with vip perks).

Personally after spending heaps of time ( scoring free stopover trips) in the Seychelles I’d say Silhouette Island is way better than the more famous and in demand (+whew crowded) La Digue Island as well as Praslin Island, dont get me wrong I agree that these 2 islands have many of the worlds top 10 beaches but the mere over crowd factor doesn’t tick off all the boxes, kind of the same way crowded Antalya vs exclusive Bodrum in Turkey does.

I would assume North Island although much smaller in size( 10x to be exact) to have a similar feel if not better, there are double the amount of staff as guests on this island that has only 10 Presidential villas and 1 exclusive Villa North Island in the category above (yep this is the 10k one in Euro)

Its all inclusive resort:including mini bar and room snacks that has jars and jars of goodies so lets hope they include it in the award pricing and not ping pong about Al Maha style. Speaking of awards, I’m sure there wont be much availability once it loads given the small amount of accommodation.

Getting there: its a very short helicopter flight from Mahe, I have seen boats service the island as well that should take 55 mins from the jetty in Mahe.

Activities: Everything you could expect on a island from hill top picnics to fishing, this ocean stretch has been my favourite to fish in, I’ve caught heaps of Tuna, Job fish, Snapper and many others. Don’t miss doing this.

Seychelles fishing is world class, the first tip is reel in fast or risk half if not more of your catch being bitten off by something bigger !

Between a rock and a hard place: is where most Marriott Bonvoy Elites will be tonight, book at the premium resorts such as St. Regis Vommuli Maldives or St. Regis New York or Luxury Collection Al Maha UAE?? or keep the points in anticipation for scoring North Island with 5th night free for 400,000 Bonvoy points, thats if they don’t decide to pull a “Waldorf Astoria Maldives” redemption on us…

No one around not even a foot print should be your forte in your 2019 travels.

IHG Pointbreaks to May 31st, 2019+ Hilton Apac promo + Hyatt promo + Marriott SA promo

Tip for scoring in travels:

A common tip I use when travelling is using points for free stays (this way there’s no taxes) on the first night or the last night or both at certain destinations especially airport hotels or hotels that offer a free airport shuttle. Airport hotels are often way cheaper using points even if you had to buy them.

If you into scoring premium hotels or the best hotels in your destination you would know it makes zero sense to check in for your full stay if you arriving at night (and subsequently missing the whole day for premium cash rates or even premium points rates that you would or could have otherwise scored with a early check in), the same goes with early morning flights = early morning check outs, similar procedure, check out your premium hotel late and on to your ‘budget hotel’ check in near airport for next days flight.

Some of my favourite savings I’ve had on low points are Hilton Bali Nagurah Rai for 5000 points, Four Points Sheraton Kenya Airport for 17000 points, heaps of Proteas at 7500 points especially for transits, heaps of all brands throughout USA, Crowne Plaza Changi Singapore for 40k points (heavy I know but the cash rates were even more crazy) and Holiday Inn Mauritius scored for 5000 points on pointbreaks previously, usually only 15000 points per night pictured below.

If you followed my road trip through Florida on Instagram last year, you could fly into Orlando and do Disney and all the rest, Nasa Space Centre, Lego Land, Fort Lauderdale and fly out of Miami and make use of the airport hotel on Pointbreaks for 5000 points.

Promos + Business Airfares + taking up the biggest score

1. Marriott Bonvoy Promo.

Marriott’s first promo is set to launch which might include a Megabonus for some.

  • Earn double elite night credit for every 2 nights.
  • Now get even more. Earn:
    • 10,000 bonus points when you stay at 10 brands.
    • 29,000 bonus points when you stay at 29 brands.

Access the offer HERE. / or log into promotion central soon as the promo goes live.

Many have asked me whats the best they can do with the heaps of Marriott points earned from my advice prior to their merger. 

Answer:

almaha.jpg

Rates: 6700 aed per night ++. Al Maha is a ultra luxury Oasis in the desert of the UAE. Using points its only 60,000 per night + 5th night free making it 240k for 5 nights.

AL maha2.jpg

It gets even better: Marriott Rewards have included All Inclusive even on points rate, as well as activities. There was a time when it was $1000 per person.

Previously Rates were:

168AED per person for breakfast

273AED per person for lunch

515AED per person for dinner

270AED per person per activity

AL Maha ( and other premium properties) goes up to Catergory 8 next month needing almost double the amount of points. The best part is book it now prior to the increase on credit and have the points 7 days before check in.

Bottom Line:

This is definitely the biggest score for a free stay to the tune of R130,000 + that was super easily obtainable.

2.  Business Class for R6500.

Kenyan Airways has a really good deal from Johannesburg to Mauritius ( there are other destinations thats higher priced ) for R6500 in Business Class. All other Ota’s are showing economy for a similar fare + Skyscanner and Matrix wont pick this up as per tips below.

KQ2xBC.jpg

Tips:

Use a pc to get on Kenyan Airways website.

Search 2 Adults or 2 Adults+2 Kids at most.

Check the flights on the different days, most will have the new Dreamliner’s B787 Out Jnb with excellent Lie flat.

Update: Out of Cape Town its R6220 however its on the old 737 planes..

3.  Radisson Rewards Travel Further. 120k bonus points.

Ends 31st March, 2019

Access the offer HERE.

4. Hyatt buy points +30% bonus.

Marriott Bonvoy + Hilton promos + IHG promos + Royal Suite Conrad Makkah.

1.  Marriott BONVoY launching.

The new name for the Marriott Rewards program launching on Feb’13th. I’ve advised many a time via social media / newsletters that personally I’ve put 80% of my 2017/2018 stays into the Marriott Rewards/SPG/Ritz Carlton Brands. The results are stellar especially now that Marriott has decided to keep the standard award points until March ( and not Dec 31st 2018 as initially forecasted).

See my recent stays and scores through St. Regis Miami, St. Regis Bangkok, Luxury Collection Bodrum, Sheraton Maldives and more on Instagram.

If you thought 2014 was great and were blown away by the merger in 2017 wait till you taste what lies ahead in 2019-2020..

What does this mean?

Readers can now still use their Platinum Elite Status and Reward points to book all the cream of the crop brands and properties for a mere 48,000 points per night ( incl 5th night free). Some properties needed 270,000 points per night prior! Time to save hundred thousands of bucks in 2019 has just got a lifeline. Take advantage asap.

Also,

One can book bulk of stays ahead without the full points or any points in account as Marriott is the only hotel brand that one can book on credit up to a week of check in using points.

Even better:

These premium all suite properties including the all inclusive ones can be had on the highly discounted points rate.

Still better:

As Marriott (formerly a SPG perk) is the only program that gives a 25% bonus on transfers of points to airline miles, all those premium 1st and business class upgrades you’ve seen on my posts and Instagram are still easier than ever.

Yes it was 270,000 points per night, now we getting it at 48,000 per night.

Access Bonvoy’s update  HERE.

 

2.  Hilton Promos:

2.1  Points Unlimited January 4th – May 5th 2019

The Points Unlimited promotion is back!  Get 2,000 Bonus Points per stay, plus 10,000 Bonus Points every 5 stays or 10 nights (whichever comes first) from January 4 – May 5. Register asap.

points unlimited

2.2  Honors Buy points 100% bonus.

Ends February 26, 2019. 

Picture you here. Buy 10,000+ Points by Feb 26 and get 100% more to get there sooner.

Access our dedicated Hilton page HERE

 

3.  IHG promo’s

3.1 Treat yourself to a break with 30% off.

 

 

3.2  Rewards Nights Faster.

January 15 to April 15. Register now, before March 15.

4. The Royal Suite of Conrad Makkah

Comes with its own massage chair. A first.

If you have been following my updates on travels on Instagram you would have seen we have currently done reviews of premium suites that are off the chart. Below is Conrad Makkah.

The size of this pad vs the other neighbouring rooms.

Located at the top of the hotel, at 247 sq. m. This amazing suite features two bedrooms with king and 2 queen-sized beds, as well as a separate lounge and a dining area with kitchen + the family essential = 2 full bathrooms, non of their other suites or rooms have this.

The front door at the end of the passage.

The front door once inside.

 

 

 

As usual in most suites one finds a guest bathroom upon entry.

 

Bedroom 1

The King Bedroom

Bedroom 2

Has 2 Queen beds.

Plenty of seating options.

8 seater dining room.

I think everyone who has visited Conrad Makkah has made good use of the two red leather (actually one now) chairs downstairs in the executive lounge.

Full kitchen.

With just about every tried and tested room and suite inventory in most of the premium hotels in the city, Traveloyalty can advise on every need for most travellers especially families.

IHG Pointbreaks + Book Ramadhaan 2019 free on points+ Trip through Miami’s finest hotels FREE + the most hyped hotel yet.

1. Umrah Ramadhaan on points – Book now.

Points have been open for 2 weeks so for those planning Ramadhaan grab the availability now.

Via my Instagram posts which included screenshots and dates of flying in for R5800 with Turkey in the mix is the best at the moment. Check it out.

Last 10 Nights Ramadhaan bookings are open.

Using points will save you almost Zar 170k thats about the same as our posts have shown each year since 2012. Remember these are room rates that can accommodate most families.
The night by night rate shows a blackout in last 5 nights as usual, however using points from a few days before bypasses this to get the booking confirmation.
Plan to stay in the Kingdom after Eid? The points rates drop more than 50-70% and the cash rates go down 10x less!
Flying in:
Use my previous post to Turkey via Jeddah, Skyscanner app has Multi City now so its easier to check dates, it might even be cheaper doing Turkey later with the Inbound. There could even be more savings, some OTA’s are offering discount codes today. For Business class, cash economy flex tickets + under 40k miles per way with get the upgrade on Middle East airliners.
Using Star Alliance miles via Cai or Add is another saving option.
Also:
Other hotel brands have similar blessings in using points, Sheraton and Marriott ( this one used to be 20k pn on points previous years) are 35k pn (140k with 5th night free). Per night thats still only 12k Starpoints! ( former SPG point currency). #ultimate

 

 

2. Doing Miami’s finest suites in finest hotels free on points.

St. Regis – Ritz Carlton – W South Beach.

 

Access the trip HERE.

In 2017 trips, St. Regis Kuala Lampur grabbed my Suite of the year award. This current year 2019 (thus far) its again St. Regis, located in Miami Bal Harbour.

TraveLoyalty’s 2017 Best of the Best:

Best trip: Umrah
Longest trip: Umrah

Most motivational: Silicon Valley, San Francisco
Best shopping: Outlets in Mco, Jhb, Honolulu
Best waves: Holiday Inn Resort, Maldives
Best near death experience: Oahu, Hawaii

2018 Best of the Best coming on Instagram in a bit over a month.

3. Disney’s Star Wars hotel. The HYPE has begun.

I took this pic below during March 2018 trip ( prior to Miami ) at the Hollywood Studios of Disney World in Orlando Florida, I just knew something astronomically big was about to unfold.

 

When I read about this in the media last year I emailed The Disney Concierge that organised our park tickets and found out that its only coming up in 2019. Sure enough here we are at the end of 2018 and I don’t think I have ever seen such HYPE for a hotel, the last I saw this much excitement would have been Atlantis the Palm, Dubai opening about a decade ago.

This HYPE is so big that USA based travel bloggers have gone to extraordinary lengths to publish plans, engineer permits and project drawings that they obtained from the Florida Municipalities and Departments of Environmental Protection.. I have truly never seen this happen before. 

Its a fairly small hotel with 600 rooms and rates will prob cost as one commentator put it ‘cost a kidney’ however the blessings of miles and points should be able to offset this.

I can vouch the very best theme ride ever experienced was the Disney World Hong Kong’s Hyper Space Mountain one during July/August 2018. I’m sure they will have similar if not better ones at the Disney Galaxy Edge in Orlando.

Check into a Star Wars themed hotel that will take the shape of a different planet far far away complete with droids, light sabers and intergalactic rides.

Disney Hollywood Studios 2019 in your plans yet?

Hilton sale – book now + Hyatt points sale plus my take on changes.

 

1. The Hilton Sale.

Book by January 31st, 2019. Stays to be completed on weekends between November 2nd 2018 and May 29th, 2019

 

Access our Hilton page HERE

 

2. Hyatt buy points. My take and update.

Up to 40% bonus. Ends November 27th, 2018.

This might only make sense for redemption at premium Hyatt properties on points rates alone as Hyatt has devalued their points + cash rates drastically on 1 Nov.

What was the worlds premium and best hotel chain for elites to burn points has suddenly hit a complete 180, however one thing unique is that one can use double the points per night for a confirmed premium suite booking, the type of suite is yet to be clarified from hotel to hotel…

I’ve recently had the opportunity of sitting down with Hyatt’s Vice President of Development and cited these concerns on the back track where other brands are pushing perks forward, he cited what many – a – Hyatt hotel manager has mentioned to me in this year “WOH is all about exclusivity and rewarding its top members”.  I still maintain if Hyatt continued to successfully bid for SPG and kept their previous loyalty program: Gold Passport they would be untouchable.

Remember those not so far aback days we could use a mere 6000 points and confirm a premium suite on booking per 4 nights. Try that now on the new points+cash rate…

Get more rewards sooner. Purchase 10,000 points or more and earn 40% more Bonus Points through November 27. Terms apply.

8. Hong Kong airfares are set to change.

In November Hong Kong ( HKG) will allow airlines to load YQ / YR taxes. What this means: goodbye to all the lucks of flying premium reward Business class for R1300 return with SAA into and also an increase on departing  First and Business class out of HKG.

One of my favourite 1st class reward flights that will be changing:

I believe this is the longest one can fly for the least amount of money in 1st class.

That’s over 25 hours over 2 flights worth of 1st class for R1060 ( Normal cash price R189,000) + have access to Emirates 1st class lounge in Dubai, see my trip review HERE.

The last part of the lounge with direct boarding gates in the background.

If you planning to max your awards asap before the increase, use my tips posted in my Youtube account HERE.

 

9. Avios is changing… Taxes increasing.

See the update HERE.

 

10. How to find hidden cameras in your room.

For those who frequent Airbnb and self catering places alike there has been plenty spike in reports of hidden cameras found especially after the movie ’13 Cameras’ was released.

I came across this excellent article some days back with plenty of tips for those who are still in the unawares. Do share it.

Personally I’ve been through Airbnb on 3 separate 1 night stays.

The first time was in the snow some years back. The home owner seemed to walk up and down the steps during the night to my upstairs room and tried to open my locked room door on one occasion. It was super creepy.

The second was in Seychelles, needed a place close to harbor jetty, it was expensive, basic, not clean, bathroom had the type of shower you would want to use flip flops in. Charged me half room rate for an extra bed. Left early next day.

Third was in Hawaii, went to look at a place, it was multiple rental rooms with shared kitchen, walked in and walked out. Scored a better deal through Rocketmiles at the North Shore of Oahu’s only hotel.

Access the find hidden cameras read HERE.

IHG Rewards Club Pointbreaks Sep 24th – Nov 30th, 2018

1) IHG. Get Double Points plus more.

16 September to 16 December.

Access the offer HERE

2) IHG Rewards Club Pointbreaks  Sep 24th – Nov 30th, 2018

Rooms from only 5000 or 10,000 or 15000 points per night.

Book HERE. 

IHG (Intercontinental Hotels Group), the worlds largest hotel and loyalty programme has released a full hotel list for booking.

If you are un-familiar on how to stay for free at top end Intercontinental and Crowne Plaza Hotels kindly read on:

What is Pointbreaks ?

Pointbreaks is the hotel industry’s most economical ( un-matched and un-rivalled) promotion as +200 hotels ( out of 4900 +) are available for the redemption of a mere 5000 points ( it has now been changed to allocate better hotels at 10,000 and 15,000 points per night) regardless of what the normal points reward rate is per night.

How do you earn IHG points ?

You can earn points from stays at hotels or taking up their super lucrative challenges every quarter, personally I earn massive points in their on-going quarterly Accelerate promo blended with 100% bonuses as a Spire Elite

see my Instagram @traveloyalty .

If you don’t have points, Traveloyalty can show you how to manufacture points using this method HERE at a rate of $35 per 5000. ( That’s half the rate the website sells them at ). It can now be done at $30 per 5000 and on a good points+cash sale at $22.50 per 5000 points

You can also buy points on sale offers during the year and earn up to 100% bonus on purchases. One just ended on the 22nd Sep.

Off course personally, I would rather spend the money on a stay and collect all the points + bonuses for free.

Remember when you book on points you SAVE ON TAXES.
