HONG KONG - Members of the Asian Hotels Alliance have
moved one step closer by offering reciprocal benefits for
loyal guests at over 60 participating hotels.
Members of the Dusit Gold Card, Landis Card, Meritus
Privilege Card, Marco Polo's Tai Pan Club and the New Otani
Club will be able to enjoy reciprocal benefits, such as
special rates which are extended by the host hotel to its
own members, with immediate effect.
"This is one of our primary objectives in forming this
alliance - and that is to reward our loyal patrons with
added value over and beyond that which one single hotel
group can offer," said Michael Ow, president of Meritus
Hotels & Resorts.
Guests need to make their reservations in advance and
show their membership card when checking in at any
participating hotel to enjoy reciprocal rates and benefits.
They will not be available in conjunction with other
discounts such as group or special contract rates.
AHA, a marketing alliance, was formed last July by Dusit
Hotels & Resorts from Thailand, Landis Hotels and
Resorts from Taiwan, Marco Polo Hotel Group from Hong Kong,
Meritus Hotels & Resorts from Singapore and New Otani
Hotels from Japan.
