If you have $1,500 to spare and want to support coronavirus relief efforts, Leading Hotels of the World has teamed up with some of its hotels to offer unique ‘Stay It Forward’ packages.
Each $1,500 package gets you:
2 nights at the hotel in question in a standard room
a unique experience during your trip
a one year membership of LHW’s Leaders Club (worth $175)
1,500 Leaders Club points (worth $120 off a future booking)
Funds will support either hotel staff who have been left unemployed or local charities.
Here are some which looked particularly interesting:
A Stay It Forward Certificate at The Ritz London includes an exclusive tour of The Ritz Kitchen followed by a four-course meal in Michelin starred The Ritz Restaurant.
In Madrid, you’ll go backstage at the Opera House for a private tour, and follow it up with a dining experience at Palacio De Los Duques’s Montmartre 1889 Restaurant offering a mix of French and Spanish haute cuisines.
On the Greek island of Zakynthos, guests of Lesante Blu Exclusive Beach Resort will embark on a five-hour private island tour from the comfort of a Range Rover limousine.
At The Fontenay Hamburg, you’ll take a boat tour at the beautiful Alster Lake complete with a delicious picnic, and receive three course dinner for two guests including a bottle of wine at the hotel’s Parkview Restaurant.
There are plenty of other opportunities, and not just in Europe. LHW guarantees that the certificates will be valid until at least June 2022, and some properties may choose to offer an even longer window.
