PAL, Alphaland offer mileage rewards
PROPERTY developer Alphaland Corp. has teamed up with Philippine Airlines to launch a mileage rewards program that will allow the flag carrier’s premium flyers to chill in the upscale tropical island resort Balesin.
In a statement, Alphaland said the partnership would enable PAL Mabuhay Miles’ “million milers” and “premier elite” members to use their mileage credit to stay in Balesin Island Club, citing this as the “ultimate” frequent flyer reward.
According to Alphaland, 200,000 Mabuhay Miles are needed to redeem a five-day/four-night stay at Balesin for two, including round-trip airfare from Manila as well as the food and beverage credit per person per day. Further details will be available from PAL starting Monday.
The “premium elite” members of PAL’s Mabuhay Miles program are those who achieve any of the following on eligible tickets every year:
earn 45,000 tier Miles on PAL and code-share flights
fly 50 one-way qualifying flights on any class of service on PAL and code-share flights
fly 25 one-way qualifying flights on business class on PAL and code-share flights
PAL’s “million milers” are those who have flown one million cumulative tier miles on PAL and PAL Express, earning the highest level of privileges in the “premier elite” level for life. These people are given first-priority treatment and dedicated travel assistance.
Balesin—a flagship leisure estate project of Alphaland which is led by businessman Robert V. Ongpin—is a 500-hectare tropical island resort with 7.3 kilometers of pristine white-sand beaches. It is located 21 km southeast of Polillo, Quezon Province and just 60 nautical miles east of Manila, Balesin. It takes about 20 minutes by plane to reach this island from Manila.
Patterned after some of the most luxurious beach side resorts around the world, Balesin has a main clubhouse and destination spa as the centerpiece alongside seven themed villages with numerous villas and suites. The themed villages are: Balesin, Bali, Phuket, Mykonos, St. Tropez, Costa del Sol and Toscana. Each of these is a resort in itself, and is designed and executed authentically, from architecture and interiors to landscaping and cuisine.
In addition, The Balesin Royal Villa offers an ideal venue for large family and social gatherings, weddings, and corporate retreats.
Balesin has also put up “Aegle Wellness Center” which offers world-class diagnostic facilities and medical team. Doris Dumlao-Abadilla
