Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Get 1,500 Avios per stay with Small Luxury Hotels of the World

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Small Luxury Hotels of the World, the marketing group behind a number of leading global boutique hotels, is offering a decent deal for stays until the end of September 2014.

As long as you book and stay by September 30th, you will receive 1,500 Avios points for every stay. This is triple the standard rate of 500 Avios.

Full details can be found here.


You will need to join The Club, SLH’s loyalty scheme, in order to take advantage of this. You will want to, though, as membership is free and you receive a free upgrade (subject to availability) on your first stay.

Ensure that your British Airways Executive Club membership number is in your ‘The Club’ profile. You will not be able to receive Avios points by presenting your membership card at the hotel itself.

If you are an American Express Platinum cardholder, you can join The Club at the ‘Loved’ level. This gets you free breakfast for two people on your first stay.  The sign-up page is here. There are also ’3 for 2′ deals available at some properties for Platinum cardholders – that link has more details.

If you are not an Amex Platinum cardholder, you will be promoted to ‘Loved’ status after your first stay and receive an upgrade AND free breakfast from them on.

Do 5 stays and you will receive a free reward night along with other benefits (late check-in and check-out, priority for upgrades), with extra reward nights every further 5 stays you complete.

    Just a word of warning – be very careful that you choose an eligible rate otherwise you won’t earn Avios points. For example, I stayed at the Atlantic in Jersey, choosing ‘the Atlantic Hotel Half Board Rate’ and subsequently found this was in eligible for points. It has to be ‘Best Available, Club or SLH prepaid rate’.

      How is the Atlantic these days? We stayed about 8 years ago, pre kids, just after it had been refurbished. In terms of room quality and staff quality it was among the best I have ever experienced in the UK (let’s not argue whether Jersey is in the UK!) although the rooms were not huge. And you do effectively have that huge beach to yourself.

      • FIRSTclstraveller says:

        Still as good as ever, the rooms have recently been refurbished. The Michelin starred restaurant is exceptional. Perhaps time for a return visit?!

    FWIW, the AXPlat signup link does not ask for AXPlat credentials 🙂

  • amit says:

    I already have a booking to Baros in Maldives for honeymoon – with a loved membership via amex plat am I likely to get an upgrade at such a resort? Do people have good experience with getting upgrades in general with SLH?

  • Mummy55 says:

    Can I click through from the link above for the link above to get the Amex “loved” membership ?
    I cannot find a link on the Amex plat site, but I may just not be looking in the right place!

    • Rob says:

      It isn’t on the Platinum website. You need to use the link above – Amex did send out an email about this ages ago but it may be before you got your card.

      • Mummy55 says:

        Thanks Raffels,will use link. Have had Platinum Amex for 15years but still seem to get more info from HFP than by email from Amex!!!
