Looking to go to Koh Samui, Thailand for honey moon. I am platinum premier elite, want to ensure I get a villa. Should I book for villa or a standard room and pray for an upgrade to villa????
The only way to Guarantee a villa is to book the villa. Upgrades are based on availability. You might want to contact the hotel directly and ask them about the availability of Villa's for upgrades from the Standard Room. They might tell you that they only upgrade from Standard Rooms to Deluxe View Rooms or something else like High Floor.
Thanks for the tip. I just got back from my trip. So I went with the renaissance in Phuket, I had booked the R deluxe view with ocean. One level up from the standard room, which they upgraded me to the villa on arrival, additionally accommodated me with bottle of wine service. Then I went to Koh Samui Le Meridian with a boiled reaervation with the pavilion pool villa, which was an awesome villa but I wanted something more spectacular; I wanted the ocean view, but couldn’t get a comp upgrade. I ended up paying the extra for the upgrade for the ocean view. Also the Le Meridian didn’t offer wine on arrival either. But otherwise the hospitality was great.
Sounds like you were well taken care of with your Platinum Premier Elite status. Thank you for the feedback!
