Luxury hotel in Singapore offers guests free night’s stay if it rains too much | World News


A luxury hotel is offering a free night’s stay to guests if their trip is ruined by too much rain.

The five-star InterContinental in Singapore said its “rain resist bliss” package would act as a form of insurance for holidaymakers thinking of staying in the city state.

However, it is reportedly only available for customers who book one of the hotel’s suites – with prices ranging from £500 to £2,635 a night.

For the offer to be claimed, it must also rain for a total of 120 cumulative minutes within any four-hour period during daylight hours – and the weather must also disrupt at least one of the guest’s planned activities.

The hotel’s general manager, Andreas Kraemer, said he came up with the idea while thinking of new ways to attract big-spending customers.

He told CNN: “​​I was chatting with a group of friends about what’s next in luxury travel and one of them jokingly commented that being able to guarantee good weather would be the next level of ultimate luxury travel.”

Mr Kraemer described the promotion as a form of “guaranteed sunshine” for “discerning clientele”.

Writing on LinkedIn, he added the move would set an “unprecedented standard in luxury hospitality”.

The free night’s stay will come in the form of a voucher, which must be redeemed at the hotel within six months.

Singapore’s meteorological service describes rainfall in the island country as “abundant”.

The former British colony’s tropical climate means it rains an average of 171 days annually.

The worst time of the year for downpours is November and December, when it rains for an average of 19 days each month.
