Hilton is currently running two resort promotions which are worth a look. One covers Europe / Middle East / Africa and the other South East Asia.
What is interesting about these deals is that Hilton is taking a travel agent approach to pricing. Instead of asking for full advance payment, you can secure your room with a 30% deposit.
The Europe / Middle East / Africa offers can be found here. There are 74 resorts in total. Egypt, not surprisingly, is exceptionally good value.
You must book by April 10th for stays at any point in 2014 as long as you book 30 days in advance. The 30% discount is based off the standard Bed & Breakfast rate.
This isn’t too confusing, hopefully. You get a 30% discount, which you can secure with a 30% deposit, as long as you book 30 days in advance.
The Asia offers can be found here. This is limited to just 10 hotels, albeit some well regarded ones:
- Hilton Odawara
- Hilton Tokyo Bay
- Hilton Niseko Village
- Conrad Maldives
- Conrad Bali
- Hilton Phuket Arcadia Resort & Spa
- Hilton Pattaya
- Millennium Hilton Bangkok
- Hilton Hua Hin Resort & Spa
- Conrad Koh Samui
- DoubleTree Resort by Hilton Phuket Surin Beach
- Conrad Koh Samui Residences
- Hilton Namhae
- Batang Ai Longhouse Resort, Managed by Hilton
The same booking rules apply.
