Sheraton Hotel has introduced a new loyalty program dubbed the “Marriott Bonvoy” which is aimed at providing an experiential platform that enables members to travel more and experience more wherever they go.
According to Stephanie Linnartz, Global Chief Commercial Officer, Marriott International said “The Marriott Bonvoy marks an evolution in travel because it represents more than a loyalty program”. Adding that, “this travel program is designed to bring to life our extraordinary portfolio of global brands in 129 countries and territories, while also providing endless inspiration for members to keep traveling and pursuing their passions.”
With Marriott Bonvoy, members will have access to Marriott’s portfolio of diverse brands including the largest collection of lifestyle and luxury properties. Whether it is sun-soaked overwater bungalows at The St. Regis Maldives Vommuli Resort, mountain-side resorts nestled against ski slopes like at The Westin Resort and Spa Whistler, beachfront properties hugging pristine sands like at The Ritz- Carlton, Bali, to iconic urban towers offering panoramic views like at the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai, or former palatial residences like The Gritti Palace, a Luxury Collection Hotel (Venice), Marriott Bonvoy provides members an unparalleled offering of experiences together with the opportunity to earn desirable member benefits.
Jacqueline Nalubega, the Assistant Director of Sales and Marketing at the Sheraton Kampala Hotel further said that the guests who enroll for the bonvoy loyalty program will achieve elite membership status and will be awarded annual points depending on level of status acquired. “The more members stay and spend, the greater the reward and recognition,” said Miss Nalubega.
“Elite members can earn points on eligible spend when they are staying at our participating hotels; dining at one of our hotel restaurants even without a stay; holding qualified events including meetings, conferences, weddings and making reservations with our travel partners including airlines, car-rental companies and cruise providers.” She added.
Marriott Rewards Moments and SPG Moments will become Marriott Bonvoy Moments, which together with Marriott Moments will feature approximately 120,000 experiences in 1,000 destinations available for purchase or by redeeming points. Also the members will be able to seamlessly book stays and earn and redeem points across the entire portfolio so as to achieve Elite status faster with new Elite tiers.
