Sudima Hotels & Resorts are offering triple Airpoints Dollars for bookings made by the 30 June, for stays completed by 31 December.

You will earn 3 Airpoints Dollars per $15 NZD spent, which works out to be an effective 20% return on the cost of your stay.

To be eligible, you must book direct with Sudima online or via phone at 0800 783 462. You must also present your Airpoints card or quote your membership number at check-in.

Full terms and conditions for the offer can be found here.


Sudima Hotels & Resorts are a home-grown hotel chain, with four properties in New Zealand:

  • Sudima Auckland Airport Hotel
  • Sudima Christchurch Airport Hotel
  • Sudima Hamilton
  • Sudima Lake Rotorua

Earning Frequent Flyer Points

The group are partnered with two frequent flyer programs:

  • Air New Zealand Airpoints: 1 APD per $15 NZD eligible spend
  • Qantas Frequent Flyer: 1,000 Qantas Points per stay

To earn points, you must book an ‘eligible stay’, which means a booking made direct with Sudima online or via phone at 0800 783 462.

You must quote your frequent flyer number when booking, and produce your membership card upon check-in.

If booking online, you can enter your frequent flyer number into the following section on the checkout page:


Your points should appear in your account within three months of the stay being made.

Star Card Loyalty Program

You can stack standard points earn with the Star Card ‘10% off best available rate’ benefit.

You’ll also receive the following other benefits as a Star Card member:

  • 15% off all Food & Beverage
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Special Offers

Note that you will not be able to stack Star Card benefits with bonus points promotions – as you can only enter one promo code for each booking.

Payment Options

Sudima Hotels & Resorts accept most major credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Diners). You will incur a 1.5% transaction fee regardless of whether you book a pre-paid rate online, or settle your bill at the hotel.

Paying with a card like the American Express Airpoints Platinum will effectively counteract Sudima’s transaction fee. This is because you’ll earn 1 Airpoints Dollar for every $59 spent, which is an effective 1.69% return on your spend.

Summing Up

For a small chain, Sudima are certainly punching above their weight in terms of loyalty rewards, in a clear move to lock down business travellers.

Watch out for their frequent bonus point promotions, which can provide a healthy offset to the cost of your stay.
