To the point

Check out our tips for getting up to 17 free hotel nights in Bali with Marriott Bonvoy points!

Marriott Bonvoy points can save a lot of money for your travel. Depending on the destination, you can get one or more free hotel nights with points.

Here are several tips to know before finding out what these points can offer you in this destination.

Earn Marriott Bonvoy points in Canada

Credit card sign-up bonuses

Marriott Bonvoy partners with American Express in Canada by issuing two Marriott Bonvoy credit cards (one for individuals and one for SMEs).

By applying for either of these credit cards, you can earn a welcome bonus of up to 85,000 Marriott Bonvoy points. If you apply for both credit cards, you can earn up to 170,000 Marriott Bonvoy points.

If you are a couple – or with a travel companion – you can earn between 170,000 and 340,000 Marriott Bonvoy points !

Point transfers

You can also transfer points to Marriott Bonvoy from one of these seven American Express Membership Rewards Cards:

The transfer rate is 1:1.2 (or 5:6). This means that if you transfer 10,000 Membership Rewards points, you will receive 12,000 Marriott Bonvoy points.

Transfer up to 100,000 points per year

Each year, you can transfer up to 100,000 Marriott Bonvoy points for free from one Marriott Bonvoy account to another. It is a convenient method to book hotel nights from a single account to:

  • Combine points earned on a spouse or a travel buddy’s Marriott Bonvoy credit cards.
  • Benefit from a Marriott Bonvoy Elite status
  • Earn Elite nights for renewal of a status
  • Book hotel nights with points by taking advantage of the “Stay 5 nights, Pay for 4” tip.

Stay for 5, Pay for 4

When redeeming your Marriott Bonvoy points, you can benefit from the “Stay for 4, pay for 4” perk.

With this advantage, you save about 20% of your booking price, so you use fewer points for a longer stay!

Bali and Marriott Bonvoy

Now that you know the main tips about earning and redeeming Marriott Bonvoy points, let’s look at the good deals at this destination.

Bali has nearly 30 Marriott Bonvoy properties classified from category 1 to 8. For this article, we will focus on hotels in category 1 to 3.

Four Points by Sheraton Bali, Ungasan 1 5K-10K
Element by Westin Bali Ubud 2 10K-15K
Fairfield by Marriott Bali Kuta Sunset Road 2 10K-15K
Four Points by Sheraton Bali – Kuta 3 15K-20K
Sthala – a Tribute Portfolio Hotel – Ubud Bali 3 15K-20K

Here’s how much a 10-night stay in one of these hotels would cost in points:

  • For category 1 hotels: between 40,000 and 80,000 points.
  • For category 2 hotels: between 80,000 and 120,000 points.
  • For category 3 hotels: between 120 000 and 160 000 points.
  • For category 4 hotels: between 160 000 and 240 000 points

These points are easily earned by signing up for the Marriott Bonvoy™ American Express® Card or the Marriott Bonvoy™ Business American Express® Card.

So, with the welcome bonus of a single credit card , you could get more than 15 free nights in a Category 1 hotel:

Night Points Night Points
1 5 000 9 5 000
2 5 000 10 Free
3 5 000 11 5 000

5 Free 13 5 000
6 5 000 14 5 000
7 5 000 15 Free
8 5 000

15 night stay = from 60,000 points !

If you are a couple or with a friend (OR if you apply for both Marriott Bonvoy credit cards ) that’s over 30 free nights !
