Members of shared holiday ownership programme Anantara Vacation Club can now convert their Club Points into Thai Airways Royal Orchid Plus Miles.

Diamond, Platinum and Royal Club Points Owners can convert at a rate of 1,000 points to 5,000 miles, with these being available to use eight weeks after conversion.

It’s the club’s aim that offering the conversion will help facilitate travel for its members to destinations where it has properties.

“Thai Airways easily connects our resorts to the rest of the world with service to dozens of destinations throughout Thailand, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East and Europe,” said Maurizio Bisicky, the club’s COO.

There is a catch, however, namely in the form of each conversion coming at a cost of US$50.

Anantara Vacation Club launched in 2010 and currently has a portfolio that comprises eight Club Resorts in Thailand, Indonesia, China and New Zealand.;
