FUEL Weekends by W Hotels: Koh Samui – Thailand

W Hotels are hosting FUEL Weekend Wellness Retreats at some of their newest destinations around the world. “Redefining Revelry for the Modern Jet Set”, these retreats will offer experiences filled with world-class workouts with a team of expert trainers, healthy meals, cocktails, adrenaline rushing adventures, parties and more.

Detox. Retox. Repeat.

Go all in on the detox or full on retox, or balance them both to live that #detoxretoxrepeat life. FUEL Weekend is all about living your best life, so you do you. Whatever you choose from workouts and spa time in the morning to delicious cocktails and beats in the afternoon, we’ll make sure it’s memorable.

W Koh Samui | June 20 – 23, 2019

FUEL Weekend will take place at the W Koh Samui in Thailand from June 20-23, 2019. Situated on a tropical Thai island in the middle of the Gulf of Thailand, each of their 74 villas have private pools and island views. While each W property has their own amazing views, the W Koh Samui might be considered home to their most “iconic” one.

After an action-packed day of celebrity workouts, killer parties and delicious food, you can visit the hotel’s spa, AWAY®, where you will be pampered with locally inspired treatments. Additional activities will include sailing, beach picnics and experiential dinners.

Booking W Koh Samui Fuel Weekend

Marriott’s tech problems are not new. While at least you can now book the package online, unlike past Fuel Weekend packages, they still appear to not offer the ability to book with Marriott Bonvoy points.

That’s a lot of money though, and for three nights you’re looking at close to $1,700 just for your room. Guest rooms at W Hotels are quite nice, but what about using points? As with other FUEL Weekend packages, it appears that there aren’t any real differences in cost between booking separately or as the package. Nor is there any real different between points or cash. Though for this property, they are offering a pointsavers promotion to the tune of 15,000 points off.

If you choose to book and pay with cash, you’ll earn 10 Marriott Bonvoy points per U.S. $1.00 spent on qualifying hotel charges.

You can also score American Airlines AAdvantage miles just by simply activating the AAdvantage eShopping Portal offer.

What’s better than spending 3 days focused on Detox Retox #selfcare? Not paying out of pocket for the rooms! For only 320,000 Marriott Bonvoy points, you can get 5 nights, for the price of 4 with the 5th Night Free Award Redemption Promo. Besides some easy ways to quickly earn Marriott Bonvoy points, there are 40+ transfer partners that allow you to convert your hard earned points and miles into free hotel stays!

Marriott Bonvoy Credit Card Transfer Partners

You can also transfer AMEX Membership Rewards points to Marriott Bonvoy at a 1:1 ratio in amounts of 1,000. Be careful though, because The Points Guy values Membership Rewards at 1.9 cents apiece, but Marriott points at only 0.9 cents each. 

Chase Ultimate Rewards

You can also transfer Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Marriott Bonvoy at a 1:1 ratio in amounts of 1,000. Mind you, transfers are nonrefundable.
