Last Updated:

From now till 28 June, get a 30% bonus on Anantara gift cards.

Anantara Resorts is a luxury hotel chain with ~50 properties worldwide. The footprint is mainly concentrated in Thailand, but they have secondary clusters in Indonesia, the Maldives, and the UAE as well.

Anantara also has a more value-oriented sister chain called Avani. Both Anantara and Avani are part of the GHA, which means elite members can enjoy benefits like free breakfast and room upgrades when they stay.

From now till 28 June 2020, Anantara is offering a 30% bonus when you purchase gift cards. These gift cards are valid for stays within 12 months of purchase, but are non-transferable (so only the person whose name is on the gift card can use it).

Gift cards are available in both USD and THB, in the following denominations:

  • US$50, 100, 150, 250, 300, 400, 500, 750, 1,000, 1,500, 2,000, 3,000, 4,000, 5,000
  • THB 1,500, 3,000, 4,500, 6,000, 7,500, 10,000, 15,000, 20,000, 30,000, 45,000, 60,000, 90,000, 120,000, 150,000

These can be used for accommodation charges, spa services and dining.

Unlike other hotel gift cards, Anantara gift cards must be used in a single transaction. In other words, if you purchase a US$500 gift card but your bill is only US$400, you’ll waste US$100 by redeeming the gift card.

Conclusion

Anantara’s 30% bonus on gift cards is potentially attractive, but the T&Cs are more restrictive than most other chains- the entire value must be used in a single transaction, it’s only valid for 12 months and it can’t be transferred.

On the other hand, most other gift card sales we’ve seen have been 20% bonuses, so perhaps that’s the cost of the incremental 10%…
