Shangri-La has launched Double Elite Qualifying Nights offers for stays between May 1 – July 31, 2021.

Golden Circle members need to consume 10 nights (usually 20) to reach Jade and 25 for Diamond (usually 50) during the offer period.

You can access this offer on Shangri La’s website here.

This offer is valid for stays at Shangri-La hotel, resort, Kerry hotel, JEN hotel, or Traders hotels worldwide. The number of elite qualifying nights you can earn towards elite status is uncapped.

Most hotel loyalty programs have either halved the elite qualification requirement, offered bonus nights, or double consumed nights during a set period.

Shangri-La has chosen the last of the three options that members in Asia are well-positioned to take advantage of. Not so for members in the Americas or Europe due to travel bans in place to most countries in Asia where Shangri-La has most of its hotels.

The Diamond status comes with good benefits, as the Club lounge access is included. Jade membership gives you a complimentary breakfast.

Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:

1. Offer is valid for stays from 1 May to 31 July 2021, both dates inclusive, at any participating Shangri-La hotel, resort, Kerry hotel, JEN hotel or Traders hotel.

2. Golden Circle members will earn double Qualifying Nights for room nights under Qualifying Room Rates. Qualifying Nights will count towards qualification for the next higher tier and renewal of the current tier Golden Circle membership status.

3. The number of Qualifying Base Nights required to upgrade or renew Golden Circle Membership tiers within a Membership Year (when double nights are applied) is indicated below:
