Let’s start by saying that this is one of those deals that sounds way too good to be true. Somehow, it’s not. We recently showed everyone how to gain elite hotel status with breakfast, upgrades and other perks through Small Luxury Hotels (SLH) and now, the company is back with a refer a friend offer that blows every other out of the water. Act fast, this is incredible.

Small Luxury Hotels (SLH) is offering a free complimentary night at any of their properties, including the $600+ a night Viceroy Bali, $1100 a night Velassaru Maldives and countless other luxurious properties in major cities- IF you refer a friend to their program. When your friend (anyone) registers (for free) for the SLH “Invited” program and completes one stay, you’ll receive a free night voucher at any property. As you may have guessed, not all SLH properties are expensive.

Friends always need hotels- and not every SLH hotel is insanely expensive. There are many SLH properties which go for just $100 or less per night, making it entirely feasible for your referred friend to have a great affordable stay somewhere, scoring you a whopper of a deal in the process. There’s no telling how long this generous refer a friend program will go on, so it makes sense to jump in now. This works ridiculously well if you refer your travel companion…

Here’s What You Need To Do Immediately…

If you didn’t see the offer for complimentary SLH elite status, head over here and register for the program. Once registered (and signed in) click this link. From there, be sure to read the T&C’s carefully for the execution of a successful referral. You refer your friend- and when they complete their first stay, you’ll get your unique voucher code emailed to you. Use it anywhere, no matter how expensive! We all like to live a little…

  1. How many times can you use this referral offer?

    And when you say anyone would a girlfriend/ fiancé staying with you in a hotel count as the referrer night if she is the one checking in and on her account? Tia!

  2. You’re posting some of the best content — including breaking stories — on BoardingArea. Keep up the great work! Especially loving your deal and how-to posts.

  3. Do you have any experience with redeeming one of these complimentary nights? After looking through the Terms and Conditions it says “4.5. Hotel availability for the redemption of a Complimentary Night voucher may differ from general online availability. A Member’s voucher is subject to the availability of Complimentary Nights at the respective SLH participating hotel.” and that “4.7. All reservation requests must be made by email only to invitednights@SLH.com;”. This makes me a little hesitant to go ahead with this because there is zero transparency on the award availability.

  4. Hello, since the SLH website has an option to explicitly book for others, can I refer a friend, but have him book a stay for me? Any idea whether that would count for the promotion? Thanks a lot!

      1. Thanks for the reply! Maybe I’ll try it out and I’ll post the result here! Also, there are quite a few European destinations with hotels around 100-150eur/night, so this can definitely pan out to be a very good deal!

  5. Looks like it is no longer possible to enroll. Anyone else experience issues ?

    ‘Hang in there!
    This page may be keeping you out, but you’ll always be INVITED in. While there are some technical difficulties on this page, you can still book our luxury hotels by contacting our 24/7 reservations team on the following numbers’

  6. I was able to enroll this morning.

    I am wondering if you could refer your spouse. Then you both stay in one of their less expensive properties to get the bonus stay…..
