Shangri La Golden Circle redemption sale

Shangri-La Golden Circle launches redemption sale

Shangri-La Golden Circle has launched another of its occasional redemption sales.

88 hotels across the Shangri-La, Kerry, Hotel Jen and Traders brands are current offering up to 50% off reward nights.

(13 hotels are not taking part, but none of these are in Europe. The list of non-participating hotels, and the full rules, are here.)

You must book by 30th October for stays by 31st January.

Golden Circle is not a partner with any major credit card or airline programme, so you can only take advantage of this deal if you already have the points.

Next week we will be reviewing the top suite at Shangri-La’s hotel in The Shard in London as part of our ‘My Favourite Hotel’ series. Sadly I was not the one who stayed there …..
