Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts has unveiled its completely restructured and enhanced signature Golden Circle (GC) recognition and award programme.

Golden Circle is one of the only international loyalty programmes that allows both staying and non-staying guests to earn and redeem Golden Circle Awards Points (GC Awards).

Since its inception in 1997, Golden Circle's 1.7 million members have enjoyed special recognition and benefits during their stays at Shangri-La hotels, resorts and Traders hotels around the world. Now, from 25 October 2010, the revamped programme enables members to also earn and accumulate points that can be redeemed for complimentary room nights, room upgrades, dining, and spa privileges at CHI, The Spa and Airline Miles.

GC members can earn one GC Award Point for every US$1 or local currency equivalent spent. Rewards are available for as little as 500 GC Awards Points and members can share rewards with family members. Golden Circle also regularly invites top members to join exclusive events each year, for example the Eastern & Oriental Express luxury train journey or a Formula 1 Race.

Members earn GC Awards Points by staying at Shangri-La or Traders hotels, dining at participating restaurants or having spa treatments at CHI, The Spa.

"From feedback and surveys, we understand that there is a group of our members who appreciate rewards in addition to personalised service and recognition. With the enhanced features we are raising the bar yet again and provide an even higher level of privileges to all Shangri-La guests," said Ng Wee Kee, director of corporate loyalty and partner marketing. "What makes this programme different is that we recognise and reward our members every time in every Shangri-La hotel, resort or Traders hotel no matter whether they are staying in the hotel or not."

To signify the change, Golden Circle has adopted a new tier system of Gold, Jade and Diamond levels. Transition to the next level is based on qualifying nights or stays per year. Membership to Golden Circle is free and open to anyone over the age of 18.
