This week Fabulous Fridays deals with hotel loyalty programs that grant their elite members great upgrades.
Earlier in the week, I was about to write a rant about the current state of the InterContinental Royal Ambassador program after few less than stellar stays (walked our from the hotels) and will write more general piece sometime next week.
Well. The photo above is from a new’ish villa at the InterContinental Tahiti where I spent couple of nights earlier in the week (was at this hotel few years ago couple of weeks on PointBreaks!) and where I will be back sometime next week.
Right now, I am at the Conrad Bora Bora Nui (former Hilton) where I managed to get one one of over water Bungalows too.
I will upload videos of these two properties to the YouTube channel (access here) sometime in the coming weeks.
Here are some of the more memorable upgrades from this year:
Couldn’t really spend as much time with the hotels unless these upgrades keep coming.
Let’s hope that the hotels never figure out a way to monetize their unsold “suite” inventory and keep giving them out for the elite members.
