Banyan Tree Promo: Save Big When You Pay Now, Travel Later

Banyan Tree Promo: Save Big When You Pay Now, Travel Later

12

Banyan Tree has just launched yet another promotion if you’re willing to pay now for travel later. Banyan Tree offered a similar promotion back in May, though this one is arguably even more lucrative. We’ve seen quite a few hotel groups offer promotions like this given the liquidity bind so many businesses are in, and this could lead to significant savings.

Through September 2, 2020, Banyan Tree is running the “Ultimate Getaways” promotion, advertised as offering up to 80% off future stays.

The way this promotion works (and you’ll want to be sure you check the terms of each package before buying):

  • You’re buying a non-refundable gift certificate that you have to use for a stay by December 20, 2021
  • The gift certificate includes taxes and service charges (which can otherwise be significant)
  • These rates are typically for two nights accommodation
  • Bookings typically include accommodation and daily breakfast for two
  • Advance reservation is required and redemption is subject to hotel’s room availability

This promotion is available at 30 Bayan Tree properties, so it’s significantly more widespread than last time (when it was limited to just a dozen properties). In each case you’re getting three nights accommodations plus some add-ons, ranging from massages, to afternoon tea, to dinner, to club upgrades.

Here are some examples of the rates and add-ons, though you can check the promotion page for all the details:

These really are some exceptional discounts, and given that the gift certificates are valid through December 2021, you’ll have nearly 16 months to actually stay.

While this isn’t a promotion I’ll be taking advantage of, if you were considering going to one of the above Banyan Tree properties anyway or live closer to these properties than I do (ideally in the same country, where border restrictions are less of an issue), then I’d seriously consider this promotion.

However, personally I think there are way too many risks here to speculatively take advantage of this promotion. Not only are you committing yourself to staying at a single property, but it’s anyone’s guess what immigration restrictions will be like in the future.

Is anyone taking advantage of this Banyan Tree promo?

    Cassia Bintan is cheaper this time around.
    Angsana Lang Co is more expensive.
    I didn't save the rest of the rates.

    Yeah, none of these hotels are anywhere even remotely realistic for a US resident to travel to anytime soon, except possibly Mexico or the Bahamas.

    As many Asian countries announce to stay shut until March 2021 and some beyond, with potential further extensions coming up as common sense seems to be still out of stock, I doubt this is a good, usable deal.

    @brian

    Yes..you can...

    I can get a much better Rate at Ritz Carlton in Kuala Lampur and it is refundable!

    The subsidiary of Banyan Tree in Thailand openly supports Uncle Tu, the “elected” dictator, and his top brass minions.

  8. Sean Guest

    Site isn’t working. I can’t purchase.

  9. brian Guest

    Can you use multiple certs consecutively? could i buy 3 (2 night certs) and stay 6 nights in a row?

  10. Alex Guest

    Please note that it is for 3 Days and 2 NIGHTS. Each certificate is only good for 2 nights, not 3 like the post says. Just FYI.

  11. Uwe New Member

    This time the offer is def a little bit more expensive as the previous one offered in May

    In May, I bought 2 vouchers for the Banyan Tree Bangkok and payed in Thai Baht Currency.
    Now they require payment in US Dollar for the same hotel...40 Dollars more....
