GHA DISCOVERY offering 3X D$ at Anantara, Avani, NH Hotels and more

From now till 1 September 2024, earn 3X Discovery $ with the Minor Hotels Group, with no cap.

GHA DISCOVERY has launched a new offer for stays at the Minor Hotels Group, which includes brands such as Anantara, Avani and NH Hotels. Registered members will earn 3X DISCOVERY Dollars (D$) on stays till 1 September 2024, without cap. 

What’s great is that GHA DISCOVERY promotions stack, so you can also take advantage of other ongoing offers such as a bonus D$15 for bookings made via the DISCOVERY app, D$150 for completing four stays of at least two nights each, and up to D$5,200 for staying at multiple brands as part of GHA’s 20th anniversary promotion. 

Earn 3X D$ at Minor Hotels

3X D$ offer

GHA Discovery members will earn 3X D$ when they book stays at hotels under the Minor Hotels umbrella, which includes:

  • Anantara
  • Avani
  • NH Hotels
  • NH Collection
  • Nhow
  • Oaks
  • Tivoli

A list of participating properties can be found here. Do note that the Elewana brand, found exclusively within Africa, is not participating. 

Registration is required, and can be done via this link. You must book by 23 June 2024 and complete your stay from 3 June to 1 September 2024. Completion” refers to check-out; if your check-out date is after 1 September, your stay will not qualify for the bonus D$. 

There is no minimum spend or minimum stay length required, and no cap on the maximum times this offer can be enjoyed. 

3X already includes the base 1X D$, so depending on their GHA DISCOVERY tier, members would earn anywhere from a 12-21% rebate.

GHA DISCOVERY 20th anniversary promo

GHA DISCOVERY 20th Anniversary Promo

To mark GHA DISCOVERY’s 20th anniversary, the chain is running a multi-brand promotion that rewards members with up to a bonus D$5,200.

This is valid for stays from 1 May to 30 September 2024, and registration is required. Unfortunately, each stay must be worth at least US$600, which is a hefty minimum spend to meet.

How do D$ work?

D$1= US$1 at GHA properties worldwide. 

D$ can be earned or redeemed on the following expenses:

✅ Eligible Spend to Earn/Redeem D$

Room and add-ons:

  • Room charge/qualified room rate
  • Room upsell
  • Early check-in
  • Late check-out
  • Package
  • Crib/baby cot
  • Extra bed
  • Day use
  • Apartments/ Residences up to 30 days
  • Internet
  • Telecom
  • In-room media

Food and Beverage at eligible outlets:

  • Restaurants
  • Bars, pool bars
  • Lobby cafes
  • Coffee bars
  • Room service
  • Minibar

Other non-room spend at eligible outlets:

  • Spa
  • Golf & Sports
  • Experiences

Only stays booked through the GHA website or official hotel websites/channels will be eligible to earn D$. 

A minimum of D$10 must be spent in a single transaction. It’s currently only possible to use D$ 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 says they are working to add such functionality, but there is no timeline yet as to when it’ll be available.

It is possible to use D$ on prepaid stays however, insofar as the hotel doesn’t actually charge your card at the time of booking (you’d be surprised, many “prepaid stays” aren’t actually charged until check-in). My advice would be to contact the hotel beforehand, let them know you want to book a prepaid rate with D$, and ask them how to proceed.

What cards should you use for hotel bookings?

Here’s the cards you can use for GHA DISCOVERY hotel bookings. Do note that certain cards will only offer their bonus rates if the booking is in foreign currency.
