SPG Paradise Got Closer 35% Award Discount At 6 Resorts Until March 3, 2015

1 Comment

SPG has extended back Paradise Got Closer award discount promotion at 6 resort properties for stays until March 3, 2015.

SPG Paradise Got Closer Main

You will save 35% off of the usual number of Starpoints required for a free night. It get’s better if you can stay for five nights, because you can combine this offer with the fifth night free award discount.

You can access SPG’s website for this promotion here.

Note that you cannot book this award type online. You must call in.

Here are the participating properties:

W Retreat & Spa Maldives from 90,000 to 58,500 Starpoints per night

Le Meridien Bora Bora, French Polynesia from 60,000 to 39,000 Starpoints per night

Al Maha, a Luxury Collection Desert Resort & Spa, Dubai, UAE from 60,000 to 39,000 Starpoints per night

W Retreat Koh Samui, Thailand from 40,000 to 26,000 Starpoints per night

Pine Cliffs Residence, a Luxury Collection Resort, Albufeira, Portugal from 40,000 to 26,000 Starpoints per night

Vana Belle, a Luxury Collection Resort, Koh Samui, Thailand from 40,000 to 26,000 Starpoints per night


The number of Starpoints required for awards at these properties at the regular level make no sense at all (I need to update the piece I wrote about this topic the other year). If you can combine this 35% discount with the 5th night free (basically another 20% off), it can start to make sense.

Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
