From now till 16 January 2023, GHA DISCOVERY is offering 2X Discovery Dollars (D$) for all stays at Anantara and Avani hotels worldwide.
While the footprint of these two chains is limited, it does present an excellent opportunity for status running and picking up the brands required to qualify or requalify for GHA Platinum or Titanium.
Earn 2X D$ at Anantara and Avani hotels

GHA DISCOVERY members who book stays at Anantara or Avani hotels between 12-16 January 2023 will enjoy 2X the usual D$.
A few points to note:
- No registration is necessary
- Bookings must be made via the GHA DISCOVERY website, GHA DISCOVERY app, or the Anantara or Avani official websites
- Stays must have a checkout date no later than 30 June 2023
- The promotional D$ awarded under this offer will be valid for six months, as opposed to the usual validity period
Here’s how many D$ you can expect to earn on your stay, depending on your DISCOVERY tier.
|🏨 GHA DISCOVERY D$ Earn Rates|
As a reminder, D$1 = US$1 at GHA properties worldwide. It’s currently only possible to use D$ during a stay, at the front desk of a hotel. You cannot redeem D$ online, nor can you spend them on F&B or spa treatments when not an in-house guest (GHA is planning to add the ability to redeem D$ outside a stay, but there’s no word on when that will happen).
If you want to use D$ to pay for a prepaid rate, I suggest emailing the hotel beforehand to clarify how it’ll work. Anecdotally, I’ve booked “prepaid” rates at the Sindhorn Kempinski and other GHA hotels that weren’t charged until check-in.
For avoidance of doubt, this offer can be stacked with other ongoing GHA offers.
How to maximise this promotion
Anantara and Avani have relatively small global footprints, but could still present an opportunity to requalify for GHA status on the cheap.
As a reminder, you only need to stay at 2 and 3 different GHA brands to qualify for Platinum and Titanium status respectively. There is no minimum length of stay, so finding a cheap rate at an Anantara and Avani hotel would put you two thirds of the way to qualifying for Titanium.
|🏨 GHA DISCOVERY Qualification|
|Platinum||10 nights||2 brands||US$5K|
|Titanium||30 nights||3 brands||US$15K|
For example, I can see rates at the Avani Sukhumvit Bangkok Hotel starting from just S$90++, and if you’re willing to venture outside of Bangkok, the Avani Khon Kaen is starting from just S$64++.
Anantara is positioned slightly higher than Avani, but I can still find the Anantara Hua Hin from S$100++.
Throw in double D$ rebates, and it could be a pretty sweet deal if you happen to be in the neighbourhood.
GHA DISCOVERY is offering 2X D$ for all Anantara and Avani stays booked by 16 January 2023 and stayed by 30 June 2023.
Given the relatively low rates of both hotels, this could be an excellent chance to status run two of the three brands you need to qualify or requalify for GHA Titanium. You could even book speculative refundable stays first, since there’s no restriction on the type of stay that qualifies.
