IHG Rewards Club launched in September an on-going double points promotion for select new hotels in Asia-Pacific and has now extended the dates through May 31, 2020.
Member must book using the Best Flexible Rate to earn the bonus points. The valid hotels with the promo dates are displayed on the IHG’s page.
You can access this offer on IHG’s website here.
Here are the hotels offering double points:
- InterContinental Phuket Resort
- InterContinental Maldives Maamunagau Resort
- Holiday Inn Express Pattaya Central
- Holiday Inn & Suites Saigon Airport
- Staybridge Suites Bangkok Thonglor
You need to keep in mind that double points are only awarded on the BEST FLEXIBLE (read the most expensive) RATE. It likely makes sense to book a reduced discounted rate if available than this double points one.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:

See below example calculation for reference:
Example Stay on Best Flexible Rate with Bonus Points Awarded:
Dates of Qualifying Stay: Friday, August 9, 2019 – Sunday, August 11, 2019
Total Best Flexible Rate amount of hotel stay: US$195
Total IHG® Rewards Club Base Points Earned on Qualifying Stay = 1950 points
Bonus IHG® Rewards Club Points Awarded for Qualifying Stay = 1950 bonus points
Total IHG® Rewards Club Points Earned (base points plus bonus points) = 3900 points
A stay is defined per IHG® Rewards Club Membership Terms and Conditions as one night or consecutive nights at the same hotel, regardless of frequency of check-in/out (“Stay”). Bonus Points are not awarded for no-shows even if the room is paid for in full. Bonus Points are not issued for stays booked through an Online Travel Agency or for bookings on rates other than the Best Flexible Rate. A member enrolled via an Enrolling Stay will earn Bonus Points on his/her next stay at a participating hotel. Only one room per member per stay will be awarded the applicable points. No retroactive bonus points will be awarded for stays booked outside of the Booking Period or if the stays take place more than 3 months after the opening date of a participating hotel. There is no maximum amount of stays that a member can make under this Offer. At the end of the Offer the member can choose to have the bonus points converted into miles by calling the service center as per the IHG Rewards Club Membership Terms and Conditions.
