A LOYALTY PROGRAMME LIKE NO OTHER
INDEPENDENT LUXURY HOTEL BRANDS
AUTHENTIC LOCAL EXPERIENCES
RICHLY-REWARDING LOYALTY PROGRAMME
Welcome to DISCOVERY, a hotel loyalty programme built for the modern global explorer.
DISCOVERY was founded on the simple principle that the best travel experiences come from true immersion in a destination. We cater to global nomads in search of lodgings far from generic, could-be-anywhere hotels. With recognition across 33 independent luxury hotel brands – all with their own unique character – and more than 550 hotels spread around the globe, DISCOVERY members can experience a property that truly reflects the culture and traditions of its location, while enjoying all the benefits of loyalty, including room upgrades and comfort-enhancing perks.

Receive experiential rewards that are actually rewarding.
DISCOVERY also recognises loyalty differently: We believe that rewarding members with authentic, memorable experiences is more valuable than collecting points. Our members accrue Local Experience awards to redeem for innovative, authentic adventures meant to connect each traveller more deeply with their destination and its people, and make each stay unforgettable. From visits to local markets, followed by personalised cooking lessons in the native cuisine, and spa services wholly grounded in traditional healing techniques, to behind-the-scenes tours of museums, and private shopping excursions, our one-of-a-kind catalogue of experiences caters to global explorers of every persuasion.

Enjoy the exceptionality of individuality, coupled with the benefits of loyalty.
Whether it’s a skyscraper on the bustling streets of Bangkok or a palace along the tranquil shores of the Bosphorus, a fashionable boutique hotel down a narrow Florentine alley or a Georgian manse overlooking a picturesque London park, a chic retreat in New York’s hottest hood or an art-filled property at Melbourne’s most creative crossroads, stay differently with us.
DISCOVERY is more than a membership; it’s your window to the world.

LOCAL EXPERIENCE AWARDS
DISCOVERY hotel benefits are the core of the loyalty programme; Local Experience awards are its true soul.
We believe that the best travel moments come from going beneath the surface of a destination and approaching it through a local lens. Local Experiences awards make this easier by connecting travellers to the people, places, and things that make a destination unique. DISCOVERY members are invited to uncover a world that few get the opportunity to explore.
EARNING A LOCAL EXPERIENCE AWARD
Local Experience awards are complimentary and are rewarded based upon your membership level and activity in the DISCOVERY programme. Awards also vary by membership level – the higher the membership level, the more exciting and exclusive the experience.
• Members receive one Platinum Local Experience award upon reaching Platinum status, and another each year their status is renewed.
• Members receive one Black Local Experience award upon reaching Black status, and another each year their status is renewed.
• Platinum and Black members earn subsequent Local Experience awards every time they stay at a new DISCOVERY hotel brand; the Local Experience award will correspond to your current membership level.
