Members of Shangri-La’s loyalty programme, Golden Circle, can get double points when they book at the Shangri-La Hotel, Doha in the Qatari capital.

The offer is valid for stays until May 31 this year, though the hotel has not issued a cut-off date for when bookings need to be made.

In addition to receiving double Golden Circle points, members can also get a 20 per cent discount on the best available rate, and food and beverage. A 50 per cent discount at the hotel’s spa, Chi, is also offered as part of the promotion.

Check-in time can be any time from 10am to 8pm, though a minimum stay of 24 hours is necessary to be eligible. As such, travellers overnighting in Doha as part of a short transit may be unable to make use of the promotion. However, following the Qatari government’s extension of its transit visa programme in September last year to 96 hours (four days) without the need for prior application, travellers with a more flexible schedule may find this a relatively easy way to earn some additional Golden Circle points.

Members should use the promotion code “GCSLDH4” when making their reservation.
