    World Class Luxury Hotels Collection

    Al Maha, World Class Luxury Desert Resort & Spa, Dubai

    Sweet desert dreams are made of this ultra-luxury resort hidden among the sand dunes of the Dubai Desert Conservation Reserve. Go camel trekking, horseback riding, or on a desert safari by day and retreat back to your sumptuous, tented Bedouin suite to relax in your private swimming pool at night.

    Select activities plus full board are included in rates, which can be paid for using either cash or points. On a recent search for suites during peak season in March 2020, standard room rates amounted to 5,243AED per night ($1,427) but just 85,000 Marriott Bonvoy points per night.

    Kigali Marriott Hotel, Kigali

    Rwanda is currently one of Africa’s hottest travel destinations—and one of the best places to go in 2020. It’s also one of the most expensive (though truly worth every penny, if you can swing it). A single gorilla trekking permit costs $1,500 and rates at top safari lodges like Singita Kwitonda Lodge begin at $1,495 per person per night.

    One way to save some money in Rwanda is by cashing out points for a stay at the impressive Kigali Marriott Hotel. You’ll have to pass through Kigali, Rwanda’s capital, on your journey both to and from the national parklands and the Marriott there, which opened in 2016, offers a high-end experience that rivals top hotels in major metropolises.

    Guest rooms average $279 per night, but it costs only 17,500 points per night to recharge your batteries before and after trekking. Plus, Kigali is fascinating city in its own right and is not to be missed.

    The Gritti Palace, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Venice

    This circa 1475 palace-turned-luxury hotel overlooking Venice’s Grand Canal is a living piece of Italian history and one of the most enchanting places in all of Italy. Living this Italian Renaissance dream in mid-June 2020 will cost a hefty 1,176 euros per night ($1,310 USD). Priced in points, rooms are just 85,000 Bonvoy points per night.
