Rotana Rewards Status Match to Highest Tier

Rotana beach resort

This could be an exciting deal for those traveling to the Middle East, Africa, and Turkey from time to time. The hotel chain Rotana with over 100 properties in 25 cities in the area, is offering a status match if you’re currently holding a top tier with another hotel loyalty program. Rotana Rewards will also match you to its highest status. And as a Platinum member, you can even benefit from upgrades to sites!

Rotana publishes a list of loyalty programs that they will match:

You will need to hold at least gold tier with one of the programs mentioned above. Anything below that level will unfortunately not be considered.

How To

Getting your current tier matched is a rather simple process. Just follow these steps, and you should be successful.

  1. Sign up for Rotana Rewards

    If you’re not a member of Rotana’s loyalty program, you will have to sign up first. This link will bring you directly to the landing page.

  2. Get Proof of Your Current Status

    Rotana wants to see evidence that supports your claim of holding status with another hotel program. This could be a screenshot of your online account. Or just a picture of your membership card.

  3. Request the Match

    Now it’s time to actually request the match. Fill out this form and attach the documents that prove your current tier.

  4. Wait for Your Status to be Updated

    Once everything is done, you just have to wait for feedback from Rotana. It typically takes around 7-14 business days for the customer service to reply.

Confirmed Matches

As of now, we did get feedback on the following matches:

  • Hilton Honors Diamond -> Rotana Select Platinum
  • Hilton Honors Gold -> Rotana Select Gold
  • Accor Hotels ALL Platinum -> Rotana Select Platinum
  • IHG Spire Elite -> Rotana Platinum

If you’ve tried to match status with Rotana Rewards and have been successful (or maybe not) we’d be happy t hear from you in the comments section!

Rotana Rewards & Benefits

Rotana Rewards is the loyalty program run by the same-named hotel chain. The company has over 100 hotels in the Middle East as well as in Turkey. In addition to Rotana, the portfolio also includes the brands Centro, Rayhaan, Arjaan, and The Residences. Most of the 4 and 5-star hotels are located in the United Arab Emirates.

The program has three different levels. Each one comes with a set of benefits:

  • Rotana Select
    • 10% discount on room rate as well as food and beverages
    • Late check-out until 2 p.m.
    • Free high-speed WiFi
  • Rotana Select Gold
    • Upgrade to next room category
    • 10% discount on room rate as well as food and beverages
    • Late check-out until 4 p.m.
    • Free high-speed WiFi
    • 10% spa discount
    • 15% bonus points
    • VIP amenities

It is safe to say that the Platinum status is the one with the most impressive benefits. Access to the VIP lounge and around the clock late check out are definitely worth it! But even if you’re currently not holding status with any other loyalty program, you might want to consider signing up for Rotana Rewards. Even the basic Select level will get you some perks.
