Travelling to Thailand? Big savings with the Hilton Premium Club

Reader Ashley got in touch to share the excellent deal he had got on a recent trip to Thailand by joining the Hilton Premium Club.  If you are heading to the country this year then it could be worth a look.

Details of Hilton Premium Club are here.

The membership fee is 7,500 Thai Bhat, so just under £140.

You shouldn’t struggle to get that back in benefits though.

Conrad Koh Samui

Here are the 10 hotels taking part in the scheme:

  • Hilton Millennium Bangkok
  • Hilton Pattaya
  • Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok
  • DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Hotel Phuket Surin Beach
  • Conrad Koh Samui
  • Hilton Hua Hin Resort & Spa
  • Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa
  • DoubleTree by Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok
  • Conrad Bangkok

Here are the main benefits listed by value, as I see it:

One free night in any of the hotels above, plus

Four nights at the Bangkok hotels (exc Sat) at a fixed price of £69 each, plus

Four nights at the beach resorts including the amazing Conrad Koh Samui (photo above) (exc Fri, Sat) at a low fixed price, plus

Two nights at a 50% discount to Best Flexible Rate, plus

Two nights on a ‘buy one at Best Flex and get one free’ basis

We then turn to the food benefits:

A set buffet lunch for two

A set buffet dinner for two

An afternoon tea for two

A free bottle of house wine when dining

Two signature cocktails

And a general 50% discount on food when two people dine together

It looks well worth a look if you are planning a trip to Thailand.  You would struggle not to get your £140 of value out of it, to be honest!

    Thanks to Ashley for highlighting this!! and to you Rob for the blog :)))

    Thanks for posting this Rob! (I’m the Ashley mentioned in the post)

    From looking on the Internet, this membership has been around for a few years, so I wouldn’t rush to buy unless you have a stay coming up soon.
    Saying that, if it disappears don’t blame me!

    A few things to note.

    1) They may try and request you to pick up the membership pack at your first hotel in Thailand, (the website does say no delivery outside Thailand) – But in the end the guy I dealt with was more than happy to do this, I also got another card for my girlfriend.

    2) To book using the vouchers you need to request a price from the Premium club and book through them, the rate will be MORE than the advanced price on the website (minus 50% for example taking it under the advertised price), and like everything else in Thailand will be the net cost + taxes + service charges.

    3)You must take the vouchers with you at check in

    4)It is up to the hotel if they also honour any hotel status, which takes the value out of some of these offers. I.e if you are gold, you may not get free breakfast! However I expect they would, as when the booking is made the hotel still uses your HH Number.

    5) Read the small print, some bars in some hotels do not accept the card for example, while some will offer a lower discount

    Overall I feel I’ve got great value from this, but that would depend on how many of the vouchers you use and if you like to use the hotel restaurants and bars.

      So just for clarity…
      We’re staying in Mai Samui Resort and I could just head down for lunch dinner and a night in the Conrad Koh Samui using this card.

      Almost seems too good to be true lol :)

      • Ashley says:

        The Conrad Koh Samui would cost you 11,250 THB + taxes for your ‘free’ night.
        But the buffets would be included.

        One (1) Voucher for one Complimentary Room (Deluxe Room) for 2 persons with ABF valid in a city hotel (Millennium Hilton Bangkok or Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok or DoubleTree by Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok) or one (1) Complimentary Room (Deluxe Room) excluding ABF at Conrad Bangkok or one (1) night accommodation at THB 3,000 nett (Deluxe Room) with ABF valid in a resort hotel (Hilton Pattaya or Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa or Hilton Hua Hin Resort & Spa or DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Hotel Phuket Surin Beach) or one (1) night accommodation at THB 11,250 nett (Deluxe Villa) with ABF at Conrad Koh Samui (Valid any day in the week) booking based on availability, excluding Public Holidays for resort hotels. Non-Transferable.

        One (1) Voucher for Complimentary Set or Buffet Lunch for two persons (Valid everyday) food only. Valid at Café@2 at Conrad Bangkok, Azure at Conrad Koh Samui, Edge (excluding Sunday Brunch) at Hilton Pattaya, Flow (excluding Sunday Brunch) at Millennium Hilton Bangkok, Sails (excluding Sunday Brunch) at Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa, The Market at Hilton Hua Hin Resort & Spa, Scalini at Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok or Dee Lite at DoubleTree by Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok. Non-Transferable.

        One (1) Voucher for Complimentary Set or Buffet Dinner for two persons (Valid everyday) food only. Valid at Café@2 at Conrad Bangkok, Zest at Conrad Koh Samui, Flare at Hilton Pattaya, Flow at Millennium Hilton Bangkok, Sails Restaurant at Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa, The Market at Hilton Hua Hin Resort & Spa, Scalini at Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok or Dee Lite at DoubleTree by Hilton Sukhumvit Bangkok. Non-Transferable.

        From speaking to the Premium Club manager, you would also be able to use the voucher for the free wine too – But I imagine some hotels might kick up a fuss using too many in one go!.

    Does that mean you can literally get a free night at Conrad Koh Samui using this as well as using the Hilton Credit Card free night? What are the low fixed price for this property?

    • Andrew (@andrewseftel) says:

      Given the ~£140 fee, I think I take issue with your definition of ‘literally…free’

    • It’s on the site – the ‘low fixed prices’ vary by property so I didn’t bother to list them all

  5. Erico1875 says:

    Are the food benefits valid for each day of the total stay, ie stay 5 nights get 5 buffets etc or is it a one off per membership?

  6. James67 says:

    A good deal. I would be tempted if I didn’t already have my own place in BKK and might still be. Readers should just take care with the voucher copayments; sometimes these are just as high as the rates that can usually be attainable at some of the hotels such as in Phuket. However for others such as the Hilton Pattaya (soulless place IMO) they are still good value as rates can be over double. Don’t forget this Thailand so don’t be surprized by creative ways to increase your folio such as Ashley mentions with taxes and service charges.

    • Ashley says:

      Yes, a good example of this (not sure if its a good Hotel, as it gets very mixed reviews) is the Hilton in Karon beach, Phuket.

      1 night in a standard room in November 10,640 THB = £230 including taxes & service
      or maybe
      Millennium Hilton, Bangkok = 5,525 THB = £120 including taxes & service

      • James67 says:

        Not sure what is going on at Arcadia; prices have shot up in last few years. Perhaps it has been refurbished and improved. I still see it sometimes for about 3500 plus tax although there was a time whe you could get 1500ish rates. Anybody wanting to stay in a chain in Patong area would be much better off going to HI Resort, it is a good hotel.
