GHA Discovery, a program that went through a significant refresh over the past 12 months, has launched a new promotion to get members to stay at their hotels through November 30, 2022.
GHA Discovery members earn D$50 for each different brand they stay at during the offer period for a maximum of four brands and D$200. You must make eligible bookings by October 31.
You can access this offer on GHA Discovery’s website here.
The terms of this offer are unclear. The GHA page states:
Get a bonus D$50 when you stay at a hotel brand you’ve never experienced before.
While the FAQs state:
Book an eligible stay between 16 September and 31 October 2022 at a hotel brand different from the one where you joined the loyalty programme. Stays should be a minimum of two nights.
(For example, if you joined as a member through a Kempinski hotel, you must book a stay at a different hotel brand such as NH Hotels, Anantara Hotels or Capella Hotels, just to name a few. You can find the brand where you joined on your digital membership card under “Membership Details” on our website or on our app.)
At least based on a cursory look at the terms, it is likely that you earn the bonus for trying four different brands during the offer period unless your GHA Discovery is tried to one of the brands when that specific one is excluded from the bonus.

Frequently Asked Questions by GHA:
What are D$?
D$ are the exclusive rewards currency of the GHA DISCOVERY loyalty programme. Earn effortlessly by staying at any hotel in our collection and including your membership number in your reservation. You can spend D$ on stays or add-ons from dining, spa, activities and more — the choice is yours! Simply apply your D$ to your bill at checkout. D$1 equals USD 1, so the value of your rewards is clear.
How do I know which brands I can stay at to receive the bonus D$50?
Sign in to your account here or on the GHA DISCOVERY app. Then navigate to the “Membership Details” webpage or “My Card” on the app. The brand where you joined will be shown on your digital membership card. To earn the bonus D$50, you can stay at any of the other brands in our collection. See all our brands here.
What if my digital membership card only shows the GHA DISCOVERY logo (and no other brand logo)?
Good news — you can choose any of the hotel brands in 100+ destinations in our collection that you haven’t experienced before to earn the D$50 bonus.
What if I already have a stay booked? Can I still earn the bonus D$50?
You must have registered for this promotion before check out from any eligible stays and your booking and stay dates must fall within the booking and stay periods indicated above.
Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:
The GHA DISCOVERY “More To Explore” Cross-brand Promotion (the “Promotion”) applies to eligible Cross-Brand stays at all GHA DISCOVERY hotels by GHA DISCOVERY members who have registered for the Promotion prior to their stay. The Promotion allows members to earn a bonus of fifty Promotional DISCOVERY Dollars (D$50) on completed eligible Cross-Brand stays in addition to the Base DISCOVERY Dollars earned on that completed stay.
To participate in the Promotion, members must register for the Promotion within the promotional opt-in period (16 September 2022 – 31 October 2022) prior to their stay by clicking on the “Register” button on the designated website page. Once they are registered as being opted in, members must then make an eligible Cross-Brand booking of two sequential nights or more during the promotional booking period (16 September 2022 – 31 October 2022) and complete the eligible stay related to that booking within the promotional stay period (17 September 2022 – 30 November 2022). The eligible stay must be completed and the member must be checked out on or before 30 November 2022 for Promotional D$ to be awarded. Ongoing stays with a checkout date after 30 November 2022 will not receive Promotional D$ for that stay.
In respect to this Promotion a “Cross-Brand” stay is a stay at any property that is within a brand that differs from the GHA Member Brand with which the member initially enrolled in the GHA DISCOVERY Programme, subject to the clarifications and conditions below.
For example, if a member has enrolled into the GHA DISCOVERY Programme through Kempinski Hotels and then completes a stay at any property of the other GHA Brands, such as Pan Pacific Hotels and Resorts or NH Hotels, that stay would be considered Cross-Brand and would be rewarded as a result of the Promotion. However, if that same member stays at another Kempinski branded hotel or resort they would not be eligible for the Promotional D$.
For the purposes of the Promotion and for tier status promotion, the following NH Brands are counted as one single GHA Member Brand and are therefore not Cross-Brand for stays by NH DISCOVERY members: NH Hotels, NH Collection, and nhow Hotels. NH DISCOVERY members would not be rewarded Promotional D$ for staying at these properties.
The list of GHA DISCOVERY Brands that are included in this promotion are listed below: Anantara Hotels, Resorts and Spas; Avani Hotels & Resorts; Araiya Hotels & Resorts; Campbell Gray Hotels; Capella Hotels & Resorts; Corinthia Hotels; Divani Collection Hotels; Doyle Collection; Elewana Collection; Fauchon Hospitality; Glo Hotels; JA Resorts & Hotels; Kempinski Hotels; The Leela Palaces, Hotels and Resorts; Lungarno Collection; Marco Polo Hotels; Mysk Hotels; NH Hotel Group (counts as 1 Brand): NH Collection, NH Hotels, nhow Hotels; Niccolo Hotels; Nikki Beach; Nuo Hotels; Oaks Hotels, Resorts and Suites; Outrigger Hotels & Resorts; Pan Pacific Hotels and Resorts; PARKROYAL Hotels & Resorts; PARKROYAL Collection; Patina Hotels & Resorts; The Residences by Cenizaro; The Set Collection; Shaza Hotels; The Sukhothai Hotels& Resorts; Sun International; Swiss Hospitality; Tivoli Hotels & Resorts; Ultratravel Collection; Viceroy Hotels & Resorts
A qualified eligible stay in respect to the Promotion must be an eligible stay with a minimum length of two nights. Bookings that include multiple rooms will be counted and considered as a single stay and rewarded only once. The Promotion can be availed of a maximum of four times during the promotional period.
Promotional D$ are awarded in addition to the Base D$ that are issued as a result of completing the eligible stay. Promotional D$ are subject to a limited expiry term of six (6) months from the date of issuance and are therefore excluded from the Base D$ expiration rules. Any Base D$ earned on a member’s stay will be subject to expiration based on standard tier-based expiration rules.
“Ineligible rates” do not qualify for earning Promotional D$. Stays that take place prior to the member’s registration for the Promotion will not be awarded Promotional D$.
“Ineligible Rates” shall include, without limitation: (1) third party online retailer rates, such as Expedia.com, Booking.com, Hotels.com, Orbitz.com, Priceline, Travelocity.com, etc. (“OTAs”) (2) tours series rates and charter rates (3) room rates for airline staff and crew where rooms are pre-booked and paid for by the airline or directly; (4) travel-industry staff rates; (5) any employee rates, employee family or employee friends discount rates; (6) other discounted rates; (7) any complimentary, free, traded or bartered night stays, or any stays in connection with gift certificates or other awards or vouchers.
This offer is subject to change or withdrawal without notice and is subject to availability.
