Save up to 25% on hotel bookings in Asia Pacific with Hilton – stay by 30th September 2020

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

Hilton has launched a new Asia Pacific sale, with extra discounts for Hilton Honors members. 

This offers good value for anyone planning a trip to Australia, China, India, Maldives and Thailand, amongst other places.

This is in addition to Hilton’s current Winter Sale, which covers stays in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.  You can find out more about the Winter Sale here.

Hilton Hanoi Opera

The Asia Pacific Sale means you can save up to 25% on stays across the region.  We spy some decent discounts in Tokyo, Bangkok and across China.

There is 20% off the recently reviewed Hilton Hanoi Opera, pictured above, which Rhys visited as part of his review series in Vietnam.

For anyone on the lookout for a honeymoon deal, there’s 25% off a number of Maldives Hilton properties.  This includes the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, a superb hotel that a reader reviewed for us back in 2017.  The new Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi is included, image below.  A more affordable taste of Waldorf Astoria can be found at the brand new Waldorf Astoria Bangkok.

Discounts are up to 25% off the Best Available Rate.  This includes an additional discount for logged-in Hilton Honors members, except in China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.

As always with Hilton sales, your room will be non refundable and requires pre-payment.  This means that the discount is not the full 25% because you would usually save 10% anyway by pre-paying.  You should still see an additional saving, however.

Waldorf Astoria Maldives sale

    Thanks for this, Rob.

    My wife and I have a one-night stay at the Conrad Bangkok next week which is our first stay at this property and will rebook for next June if suitable for our requirements. If not, then we’ll give the Waldorf Astoria a try.

    Reading today’s email from a riverside cafe in Phnom Penh, first trip to Cambodia using a 241 to KUL. Really enjoying it here not big hotel points collectors so used SelectiveAsia for tour and small hotels, very impressive so far.

  • Benilyn says:

    OT: So mentioned I stayed in Hilton Cairo Heliopolis (20k p/n redemption, 2 nights), got upgraded to Executive Room. So after Luxor/Aswan Nile Cruise, stayed at 10k redemption Hilton Pyramids Golf as recommended by ankomonkey here (thank you), and we got upgraded to Junior Suite which was great! Also had access to the executive lounge for brek, but wish I hadn’t eaten there, range was so small compared to main breakfast location but didn’t have time to go to both. Did 1 night here, went to see the Giza Pyramids / Dashur / Sakara / Memphis, then checked back into Hilton Cairo Heliopolis, paid in cash c$125 I think after taxes, and got the same room upgrade as before. I tried to get a suite but booked, which I think was a lie as I saw several available on their website but I was too tired to argue. All in all, I can recommend both hotels.

    We had a really good tour guide in Luxor / Aswan so let me know if you need details.

      Benylin – I’m interested, please email me (click on username) after ticking Istanbul off my bucket list I was thinking of equally interesting historic locations. I’ve only ever seen Egypt from a dive boat in the Red Sea.

    • Moktar says:

      Stayed at the Marriot Mena House in Giza and Cairo Zamalek residences this October. Mena House is in the forecourt of the pyramids, can’t beat it’s location for convenience and view! It is steeped in history as well which you can see through photographs hung around the corridors. For the Hilton, got upgraded to a suite when I booked cash on the cheapest rate. The property shows its age though and needs refurbishment.

    • ankomonkey says:

      Glad it worked out well for you 🙂

  • ThinkSquare says:

    When did this Hilton sponsorship week start? I hadn’t noticed anything until today, Thursday.

    Not that I’m complaining. I have a load of hotel stays to book for a forthcoming US road trip, so any deals are very welcome.

    • Rob says:

      They are doing alternate weeks until the New Year. Good result for us because we get a few quid without sacrificing any of our standard ad units. It is more obvious on desktop than mobile.

  • Pablo says:

    OT: I completely missed the end date for the HH buy double points promo (ended last weekish). Given how often it is run, anybody know when we can expect the offer to run again? Need to top up my balance to do 2 * 5 night stays

  • TripRep says:

    Rob, it’s probably worth reminding folks of the significant taxes and resort fees (>20%) at Maldives properties for cash stays that are not charged for points redemptions.

  • TGLoyalty says:

    OT but hotel related. Hyatt start peak and off peak redemptions from March 2020
