This blogpost is issued in the interest of all the luxury shoppers out there. Big ticket spenders at Mumbai’s plush Palladium Mall now have reason to rejoice thanks to the mall’s new #AssuredRewards programme. A day at the mall shopping for your favourite brands can turn into a complete indulgence, with a host of fringe benefits. Curious to know more?
Let me cut to the chase and tell you what I’m talking about.
If you spend a few hours at Palladium mall, and run up a bill of INR 2 lakh (this applies to any participating Phoenix Marketcity malls), you will receive the following assured benefits
– 3 Day/2 Night stay at The St. Regis Mumbai inclusive of breakfast for 2 adults + 1 child
– Food & Beverage credits of INR 5000 at The St. Regis Mumbai.
– Salon services from Jean Claude Biguine, Palladium worth INR 4,000.
– 25% off at Shizusan, the trendy Asian eatery at High Street Phoenix.
– 15% off on all Food & Beverage outlets at The St. Regis Mumbai.
– 15% off at the Iridium Spa at The St. Regis Mumbai.
– A special rate in case you want to upgrade.
I did a bit of math to figure out if the deal was worth it. I logged into the Starwood Hotels’ website and checked out the prices for the hotel stay. With taxes and extras, the stay itself amounts to INR 30,000. Add to that a INR 5,000 credit for F&B and a Jean Claude Biguine credit of INR 4,000. You are looking at a minimum of INR 50,000 instant rewards for a INR 2 lakh purchase. Well worth it, in my opinion!
I decided to head on over to Palladium Mumbai to have a first-hand experience of the Assured Rewards programme. I was in the company of the stunning blogger Stephanie Timmins from The Feisty Fox Diaries. It was so much fun.
I indulged in some luxury shopping – a blue suit from Paul Smith, a Pliage bag from the newly-launched Longchamp store, some elegant luggage from Tumi and finally I made a brief stop at Burberry to check out their classic trench coats and their new Mr. Burberry Eau de Parfum.
I needed a quick grooming fix so I popped into Jean Claude Biguine and used my salon credits for a quick haircut and manicure. It always feels so good to indulge in some pampering in the middle of the day.
This was followed by a copious late lunch at The St. Regis Mumbai’s Seven Kitchens, multi-cuisine all-day restaurant. I was too late for the buffet lunch so I opted for the a la carte option (their Thai options are awesome)
And finally, the best part, I checked into my plush room at The St. Regis Mumbai (OMG what views!) for my little complementary staycation. Did I mention that any guest at The St. Regis Mumbai enjoys a personal butler service at no extra cost? Don’t forget to witness the hotel’s signature historic “champagne sabering” ritual that takes place in the lobby at sunset.
All you luxury shoppers out there, if you’d like to enjoy these Assured Rewards, the offer still stands at Palladium Mumbai till 15th August 2017.
