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

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?
