Intercontinental Bora Bora 2 Bedroom Suites for Only 30k Points a Night

Priority Club is in the process of changing the number of points needed to redeem for free nights (read: they are increasing the amount of points needed to book many hotels). 40,000 used to be the maximum amount of points needed for an Intercontinental, but as of today many are now at 50,000.

However, it seems that they’ve decreased the number of points needed to book a free night at both of their Bora Bora properties. One of the best properties, Intercontinental Bora Bora Resort & Thalasso Spa now shows only 30,000 points per night for a 2 bedroom suite.

This will probably change, so get in while you can! The room shown in the screenshot in this post was selling for $935, so those 30,000 points are worth roughly 3.1 cents each – not bad since Priority Club points are usually worth less than a cent a piece. You can also get this using cash & points for 20,000 points and $60 a night.

I generally don’t recommend transferring Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Priority Club at the 1:1 ratio, but it could make sense in this situation.

    Just speculatively booked 5 nights over Christmas. Now to start thinking about flights!

  • Aussieflyer

    Nice that it went down but to go to Bora Bora and stay in a garden villa would be a shame,

  • Julianne

    Mistake is now corrected. Both Bora Bora ICs now show 50K rather than 30K.

    You can easily contact the property ahead of time to arrange for a paid upgrade to OWB. Daraius @ Million Mile Secrets told us exactly how in this post – http://millionmilesecrets.com/2011/07/14/use-points-for-an-overwater-bungalow-at-the-intercontinental-thalasso-in-bora-bora/

    Rats, I tried to snag this, but it was already fixed :(

    The 3 “family suites” at the property are located away from the water and near employee housing. You want to be in one of the over water bungalows. They book points reservations into the “family suites” and then upcharge you $200 for an OWB. Trust me, you want the OWB !

    Some Priority Club deals are just too good for words. I just got a Milan, Italy hotel for three nights later this month that would have cost me $654 a night, for 25,000 points a night. With the current bonus promotion I can buy those miles for $250, i.e. one cent a mile while the value is 2.62c. Great deal!

    40k to 50k is a 25% jump. Thats pretty steep.
