About VOILÀ Hotel Rewards
VOILÀ (www.voilahotels.com) is the world’s number one loyalty program that unites a network of more than 250 four-and five-star independent hotels and luxury brands. The program first launched in 2008 and has developed a reputation among travelers who like to stay in original, up-market independent properties for its compelling promotions, ease of use and simple, quick redemption process.
VOILÀ’s co-branded, fully customized guest loyalty programs support travelers who frequent Starling Hotels, Rosedale Hotel Group, Hotéis Othon, Deville Hotels, St Giles New York, Swissbel Hotels and Resorts, Kayumanis, Nevsky Hotel Grand, Great Hotels Organisation, St. Regis Hotel, Husa Hotels, Amari hotels & resorts, the Lexington Collection of Hotels, Inns and Suites and K+K Hotels Group.
VOILÀ’s points-based frequency guest program provides recognition benefits and room redemption opportunities at participating network hotels. But unlike big chain programs, VOILÀ enables independent hotel groups to stay independent and maintain their unique qualities.
VOILÀ provides hotel- or group-branded solutions for our partner hotels, with VOILÀ acting as the supporting brand (similar to Star Alliance or OneWorld for FFP’s). This allows members to earn and redeem points across a wide variety of hotels and redemption partners in the VOILÀ global network.
From the consumer’s perspective, this means members can enjoy the rich experiences and extraordinary qualities independent hotels offer while earning points and receiving benefits typically tied to big chain loyalty programs. For more information, please visit:
