A new world of hotels – and even more Avios

Grab your sunnies and swimwear: it’s time to collect bumper Avios on late-summer stays with Avios Hotels

If you’ve not used Avios Hotels before, where have you been? Powered by Expedia, it lays on more than 320,000 carefully vetted hotels, with each one available to book with cash or Avios, and each one landing a stock amount of Avios in your pocket once the stay is complete. And, if you book before 30 June 2024, that amount is dialled up to a whopping 15 Avios per every £1 spent, rather than the usual ten when you pay in full in cash.

This isn’t the only way to collect Avios on hotels, though – you can still boost your Avios balance with trusty British Airways Holidays, where you can not only collect Avios (1 per every £1 spent), but earn double Tier Points and enjoy a host of late deals and special offers.

Ready to start collecting on your hotels? We’ve selected five hotels to begin your Avios Hotels journey and seal the deal on that dreamy late-summer escape (just make sure to have your Executive Club details at the ready – you’ll need them)...

Rome Cavalieri, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel,

For knee-weakening romance…

Where? Rome, Italy
Dust off your proposals and PDAs for Rome Cavalieri, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel, which puts an inimitably Italian spin on romance. Perched on Rome’s highest hilltop, with views of the Eternal City and St Peter’s Dome that would have Fellini reaching for his camera, this seductive city bolthole is ensconced in 15-acre parkland. Delights for couples include La Pergola restaurant, the city’s only three-Michelin-starred eatery, courtesy of Heinz Beck, while Cavalieri Grand Spa Club is a serene setting for pampering treatments, glow-getting facials and VIP hair services fit for Sophia Loren.

Hyatt Grand Central New York

For next-level shopping…

Where? New York, USA
In the city that never sleeps, why should your credit card? Hyatt Grand Central New York is a hop and a skip from Fifth Avenue, a Mecca for shopping-lovers. Bring some Gossip Girl or Wolf of Wall Street swag to your wardrobe, and swing by your notable neighbour, the Empire State Building. As its name suggests, this city slicker provides unique access to New York’s buzziest station, putting the best of the Big Apple on your plate, including world-class dining, art, culture and a vibrant nightlife. Back in your berth, handsome bedrooms reveal an urban-luxe design and impressive skyline vistas. 

NH Collection Amsterdam Barbizon Palace,

For storied culture…

Where? Amsterdam, Netherlands
Rewind time at NH Collection Amsterdam Barbizon Palace, which occupies a series of handsome 17th-century townhouses, with a 15th-century chapel for good measure. Hospitality, however, is entirely modern, with relaxed staff, an urban wellness and fitness centre, a Green Key-certified sustainability approach and sleek rooms to retreat to. The jewel in the crown is Restaurant Vermeer, revealing fine-dining cuisine rustled up by chef tour-de-force Sebastian Baquero Garces. You’re perfectly placed for city pottering, a pearl’s throw from Amsterdam Centraal station and a five-minute stroll from the Royal Palace. It’s just ten minutes to the Van Gogh Museum by tram.

Atlantic The Palm

For outrageously good food…

Where? Dubai, UAE
Dubai doesn’t do things by halves. And when it comes to dining, neither does Atlantis The Palm. Sidestep the world’s largest waterpark, the resident dolphins and the frolicking sea lions, and make a beeline for the resort’s several restaurants. Headline acts for any self-respecting foodie are Michelin-starred Osiano and Hakkasan, alongside Nobu Dubai and Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen. The hotel’s signature restaurants also merit mention, encompassing everything from Lebanese cuisine at Ayamna to juicy cuts at Seafire Steakhouse and South American flavours accompanied by flaming hoop performances, tango dancers and acrobatic tricks (yes, really) at En Fuego. Arriba!

Nobu Hotel Barcelona

For urban Zen…

Where? Barcelona, Spain
Catalonia’s cultured capital has plenty of buzz. In between city adventures, reset at Nobu Hotel Barcelona. Zen-inspired interiors – all neutral-and-pearl hues, sleek lines and minimalist furniture – create a soothing first impression, which continues in the restful rooms and suites. Recharge at the Nobu Spa, where three treatment rooms, a sauna, a steam bath and a fitness centre await. Guests can enjoy complimentary yoga classes or practise with in-room, on-demand digital classes provided by Earth + Sky, backdropped by the Atlas Mountains, the London skyline and other global settings. Last, but assuredly not least, there’s world-famous Japanese dining by a certain superstar chef.
