About VOILA Hotel Rewards

VOILA is the world's number one loyalty program that unites a network of more than 250 select independent hotels comprising over 20 select global hotel brands. The program first launched in 2008 and has developed a reputation among travelers who like to stay in original, up-market independent properties for its compelling promotions, ease of use and simple, quick redemption process.

VOILA's co-branded, fully customized guest loyalty programs support travelers who frequent Copley Square Hotel, Details Hotels, HB Hotels, Hoteis Deville, Husa Hotels, Impiana Hotels & Resorts, K + K Hotels, Kayumanis, KC Hotels and Resorts, KeyLime Cove Resort, Lexington Hotels, Mamaison Hotels & Residences, Othon Hotels, Riande Hotels, Ritz Lagoa da Anta, St Giles Hotels – New York, The St. Regis Hotel, Starling Hotels & Resorts, Sutera Harbour Resort, Swiss-Belhotel International, The Media Hotel and Towers, and TIME Hotels.

VOILA's points-based frequency guest program provides recognition benefits and room redemption opportunities at participating network hotels. But unlike big chain programs, VOILA enables independent hotel groups to maintain their branding and unique qualities. To achieve this, VOILA provides hotel- or group-branded solutions for our partner hotels, with VOILA acting as the supporting brand (similar to Star Alliance or OneWorld for frequent flyer programs).

VOILA's global presence allows members to earn and redeem points across a wide variety of hotels and redemption partners in the VOILA global network. A selection of VOILA's current redemption partners include airline programs such as Alaska Airlines Mileage Plan, TrueBlue by JetBlue, Virgin America Elevate Program, Flying Blue (Air France / KLM), Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards, Virgin Atlantic flyingclub, EarlyReturns Hawaiian Miles, LifeMiles, Iceland Air Saga Club, and US Airways Dividend Miles; retail partners such as Amazon.com, American Express, Multiplus Fidelidade, Smiles, Mango, iTunes, Emaar, iFly Dubai, Ski Dubai, and Thanks Again; and charitable causes such as Kula, Worldreader.org, and Kiva.

From the consumer's perspective, this means members can enjoy the rich experiences and extraordinary qualities independent hotels offer while earning points and receiving benefits typically tied to big chain loyalty programs.
