Heading to Thailand? Consider the Dusit Wine & Dine programme

Back in June I wrote about the Hilton Premium Club.  This is a membership scheme run by the various Hilton Group properties in Thailand.  For a very modest £140 you receive a free night in any Hilton property in Thailand and a huge number of free food and discounted room night benefits.

Reader Alastair dropped me a note to highlight the Dusit Wine & Dine programme which runs on similar lines.

Dusit Thani Bangkok

You can find full details in a PDF here.

Membership of Dusit Wine & Dine costs 6,500 baht, which is currently £127.  It is valid across the following luxury hotels in Thailand:

Dusit Thani Bangkok (pictured above)

Dusit Thani Hua Hin

Dusit Thani Pattaya

Dusit Thani Laguna Phuket

dusitD2 chiangmai

dusitD2 phuket

Dusit Princess Korat

Dusit Princess Srinakarin, Bangkok

Royal Princess Chiang Mai

Dusit Island Resort Chiang Rai

 The most interesting benefits as far as I can see are:

A free night in any of the hotels above

2 x room upgrade certificates

8 x 2-4-1 accommodation certificates

A 500 baht spa voucher

Free bottle of wine when dining

Free sparkling when dining

1 person dines free when 2+ people dine (can be used multiple times)

As with the Hilton scheme, you need to do the maths to see if the scheme works for you.  It is difficult to see how you would not get your money back via the free night certificate and, say, one 2-4-1 stay and that is before you factor in the dining deals.

  1. I used this card and the Hilton card during November and December, It worked very well.
    There is no nonsense about cheapest dish free, the food bill is halved.
    Both Hotel groups had my card waiting for me at the hotel, the hotels were aware and happy with vouchers.

  2. Is anyone aware of something similar in Malaysia or Indonesia?

    I’ve return flights to Kuala Lumpur booked, but still undecided on where to travel on to after seeing the city, so this sort of thing could sway me!

  3. On a slightly different topic we are thinking of going to Thailand with our 2 children just after Christmas for 2 weeks. We are close to east Midlands airport so would not mind doing a small flight to Finland/Germany to get cheaper taxesusing our Avios. Any tips? Also do you have to fly back to FI or DE or can you come straight back to UK airport and not pay the high taxes?

    • We have an ex-OSL US trip booked for March where we return straight to MAN, this was actually cheaper than returning to OSL so play around with different combinations.

    • Try pricing up Frankfurt to Doha on Qatar and then Qatar to Bangkok. The Frankfurt leg is under 3000 miles so only 12,500 Avios in Economy one way plus modest tax. Not sure what Qatar to Bangkok prices at.

      Coming back you could get BA to London as no APD on flights back, albeit you are hit by BA fuel surcharges.
