Both the hotels usually retail between INR 3,000 to INR 5,000 before taxes, so it does reflect good value if you get them at 5000 points.
Do remember that each member may only book two PointBreaks Reward Nights reservations per hotel, though there is no limit to the number of times one can book via the PointBreaks offer. Also, bookings are open under PointBreaks only for stays till July 31, 2016.
