Leela DISCOVERY is our innovative loyalty programme, offered in partnership with Global Hotel Alliance (GHA). One of the first of its kind, the programme focuses on ‘recognition’, ‘special privileges’ and ‘amazing Local Experiences, wherever you travel’, as opposed to the existing model of reward points.

Leela DISCOVERY is about making your stay and travel unforgettable. We believe that rewarding members with authentic, memorable experiences is much more valuable than collecting points. With this in mind, Leela DISCOVERY instead rewards travellers with Local Experiences. Designed by our local experts, these specially curated experiences offer members the access to a large selection of exclusive activities which are not easily available to the general public. As a Leela DISCOVERY member, you are recognised and rewarded across 35+ hotel brands with 570+ hotels in 85 countries, gaining access to a world that only a few travellers get the opportunity to experience.

JOIN NOW  to start your DISCOVERY journey with us. If you are already a member, please log in here.
