Use HoteLux to enjoy complimentary room upgrades and breakfast at luxury hotels like Capella and Raffles
Yes, we might already be in 2021, but staycations are still very much a full-blown reality for the travel-starved. Keeping in mind that our glittering city has a slew of hotels for a clever mirage whenever you're feeling claustrophic in your own home country. And we're completely on board with it, especially when handed a chance to make the most out of it. A new booking app, HoteLux has debuted on our shores — a membership-based luxury hotel reservation app (beyond your Agodas and Bookings.com) to offer enticing benefits by booking a stay via the nifty platform.
With its origins from China, HoteLux decided that Singapore would make the perfect first stop to launch the app — with a healthy dose of travellers as well as with the stability of the situation in light of the pandemic. They are the open gateway to over 4,000 luxury properties worldwide, and as for Singapore, you will spot the likes of Capella, Raffles, Andaz, Shangri-La and more reputable brands.
By booking your hotel accomodations through this app, HoteLux members will be able to enjoy enticing exclusive benefits during your stay, such as complimentary room upgrades, daily breakfasts and up to USD 100 hotel dining or spa credit during your stay. And unlike most third-party systems, your bookings will be recognised under the respective hotel. Meaning you get to accumulate both hotel loyalty program points as well as HoteLux points, with the latter giving you credit in exchange.
Crafted in a clean interface, with rewards and ongoing promotions easily perused, you get to cut back on the cumbersome clicking of links unlike the rest of the booking parties out there. And not to mention, instantaneous replies re enquiries with their very own live chat advisor.
Given current travel restrictions, users are restricted to only booking hotels located in Singapore. But if things were to turnaround, not to fret, the app has already included hotels located overseas that will surely come in handy in the future.
In conjunction with HoteLux's app launch in Singapore, HoteLux will be waiving the annual membership fees for the first two hotel bookings for new users. Though from the third booking onwards, you'll have to pay the annual fee of S$99 — hereby earning the rank of an Elite — to continue enjoying the same benefits. Given that the US$100 (S$132.50) credit in your first stay would more than cover the fee, it really does make a convincing case to join the club.
