I was on a hunt for the perfect birthday present for my husband when my friend suggested the Club ITC Culinaire membership to me, keeping in mind his absolutely irrevocable love for food and all things good in life.
It was his big 50th, I knew the gift had to be special, but a hotel membership is something I was really unsure of only because I had never heard of anything like it before. However, one look at their online brochure was enough for me to make a decision and buy the membership.
ITC has the most beautiful properties across the country. From ITC Maurya nestled in greenery in the heart of Delhi to the very royal ITC Rajputana in Jaipur, each property is worth a visit for the unique experience it has to offer. In addition to beautiful hotels, ITC Hotels are known to create handcrafted signature dining experiences at their iconic restaurants like Bukhara, Dum Pukht, Peshawari and others. The restaurants known for their flavorful excellence offer the finest in food, service, ambience and culinary traditions.
Club ITC Culinaire membership Green Points can be accumulated and redeemed on accommodation and lifestyle at over 100 hotels in 75 locations and 80 Wills Lifestyle stores.
My husband absolutely loved the membership card and soon enough I knew that I had made the right choice. The welcome bonus of 6000 Green Points allowed us to redeem them for a one night stay at ITC Maurya to celebrate my husband’s 50th.
The best part of the evening was that in addition to the 25% Green Points, we earned 50% bonus points on the entire bill as a part of the birthday week redemption and since our total expenditure crossed 25,000, we were credited with another 1,000 Points. On a bill of Rs 30,000 we had earned 12,250 points, which can now be used for 2 room night stays at ITC Maurya itself at 6000 points a room night.
We had invited a few friends for dinner at Bukhara to celebrate the special occasion and enjoyed a very memorable meal as the restaurant never fails to impress. The best part of the evening was that in addition to the 25% Green Points, we earned 50% bonus points on the entire bill as a part of the birthday week redemption and since our total expenditure crossed 25,000, we were credited with another 1,000 Points. On a bill of Rs 30,000 we had earned 12,250 points, which can now be used for 2 room night stays at ITC Maurya itself at 6000 points a room night or at another similar ITC Hotel across India or a visit back to Bukhara for knocking off Rs 12,250 from our next bill.
Even though the membership was a gift for my husband, the complimentary spouse card lets me enjoy the benefits too! Now I use my spouse card to redeem points every time I have a Kitty to attend or go out for a casual lunch or evening with my friends.
Club ITC Culinaire is a combination of a good deal and super experiences at an ITC Hotel. From 25% Green Points on dining, birthday week celebration bonus of 50% points (including the spouse birthday), to 5% earnings on your stay and on expenditure at Wills Lifestyle stores, the membership caters to all aspects of a distinguished lifestyle. Perfect for connoisseurs of good food, fashion and experiences!
