In Thailand alone, diners can have a choice from 38 participating restaurants from a wide rage of cuisine including Thai, Indian, Italian, buffet, wine bar and grill. These restaurants can be found in 19 of Starwood's hotels and resorts across the country.

Each participating venue will offer three Food and Beverage (F&B) benefits, including a standard venue discount of 15-30% discount.

"Our loyalty program, Starwood Preferred Guest, plays a vital role in prompting our guests to dine at our restaurants," said Martin B. Jones, Vice President of Food & Beverage, Asia Pacific for Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., "We continue to see growth in 'out of stay' F&B expenditure by our SPG members. In fact, we have seen an impressive increase in number of local diners who have joined SPG to enjoy dining benefits in their cities, and they continue to earn Starpoints even when they are not travelling."

"With the launch of Triple Benefits, we believe these benefits will make SPG even more relevant to our members and encourage them to discover the unique and compelling experiences available in our restaurants and bars, and continue to strengthen our robust culinary culture."
