The 8 participating resorts are:

SPG redemption promo

Redemption nights start at 26,000 Starpoints  in Thailand and French Polynesia and go all way up to 58,500 Starpoints for the W Retreat and Spa in the Maldives. You can also combine the 5th night free offer along with the 35% off which will further bring down the cost by another 20%. Hence a 5 night stay at The Naka Island, Phuket that usually costs 1,60,000 Starpoints can be availed at 1,04,000 Starpoints. That’s a very sweet deal !

Another great thing is that stays under this promotion will qualify as eligible nights or stays required towards earning elite membership status.

Though something to keep in mind is that award nights under this offer cannot be booked online and you will need to call the SPG contact center for reservations and quote the offer.  Also, there is no upper limit on the numbers of times you can use this offer to make award bookings during the promotion period.


If you have been planning on redeeming your Starpoints for a vacation then this is a great promotion to make use of. Also, don’t forget to try your luck in SPG’s daily game promotion which is running until September 12, 2016. Who knows you could be the lucky winner of 50,000 Starpoints and be able to use those points towards a discounted redemption here.

  1. @Shipra,
    Is it possible to earn Starwoods Points in India other than staying in SPG properties or transfer thrugh AMEX cards? I think in India its very hard to earn SPG points.

      • Ajay,

        Globally you can transfer Diners Club Rewards points to SPG but I am not able to figure out how to transfer my HDFC Black Diner Card points to Diners Club rewards points. I tried registering on but it does not recognise my India Card. Its frustrating. If we can do that, we can be a happier lot..!!

        • @Krishnakumar in india Diners Club operates under the tutelage of HDFC BAnk. So, you can’t go direct. Anyways let’s see what will be the new transfer partner list for India, or if there will be one at all!!

          • Ajay,

            Thats true.But you know in June I transferred 1 Lakh points to AAdvantage. I was expecting credit of 1 Lakh AA miles credit. But instead I received 1.2 Lakh AA miles. I checked that was offering 20% transfer Bonus for June on transfer to AA miles and the same was applied to me.

            • @Krishnakumar here is how it works I think, HDFC bank has selected the partners, they take requests and send to DINERS club in the US, who then process the requests. I have also received such bonuses in the past. But the currency is in control of Diners India (HDFC bank)
