Thailand based Dusit Hotels are running a status match promotion targeted to flyers holding Bangkok Airways FlyerBonus Premier status to receive the hotel chains top tier ‘Gold Elite’ status.
Obtaining the Premier status with Bangkok Airways requires collecting 250 flight qualifying points* or travelling 35 qualifying sectors** within 12 consecutive months. You can find more information about their program on the website (access here).
What is the promotion about? Here the info from the landing page:
Dusit Gold is Dusit International’s guest loyalty programme, designed to reward and enrich your stay at Dusit’s finest participating hotels and resorts worldwide.
As a FlyerBonus Premier member, Dusit International has offered you a pre-approved membership directly to the Dusit Gold Elite tier, the highest and most privileged Dusit Gold membership level. Once enrolled, you will automatically be upgraded to the Elite level where you will be able to enjoy the benefits of your Elite membership from your very first stay onwards.
Sign up now for free by completing your information below. On completion, you will receive your confirmation of registration and your log-in access via email.
Validity period: 25 April – 30 June 2016
Dusit Hotels has opened up the enrollment website for this status match promotion (see here) which requires eligible members to fill in their details into a web form (I assume these will be verified).
Here is the benefit table for Dusit Gold Status members:
The most significant benefits are Late Checkout up to 6pm, Free Room Upgrade, Complimentary Minibar and Complimentary Breakfast. I’m not sure if Dusit Hotels have a lounge but even if so, lounge access is not included in the table of benefits.
If you hold the Bangkok Airways FlyerBonus Premier status then you should definitely apply for this status match promotion since the benefits are decent and all Dusit Hotels I stayed at (3 so far) were in fact very nice properties.
