Spend at least PHP 16,000 on a single or on accumulated transactions for a base 307 GC Points x 3 (Triple Points Promotion) = 921 Golden Circle Points and since you get 100 points just for downloading the app, which totals to enough points for a standard room.

How many points for a free night?

You can redeem a night in a standard room for as low as 1,000 Golden Circle Points. There are currently 15 properties under Collection A — 12 of which are in China, 2 in Malaysia, and 1 in the Philippines, which is Hotel Jen Manila.

The best value for your points would be Shangri-La Yiwu and Shangri-La Hefei both hotels opened in the last 2-years, which means they’re built with new generation Shangri-La design present in Shangri-La Fort in Bonifacio Global City. They have an average rate of PHP 7,000 per night and  are conveniently just under 4 hours away from Shanghai by China High-speed Rail (CHR). Hotel Jen Manila is also a good option, if you prefer not travel to redeem outside of Manila.


What to eat at Sage Bespoke Grill?

You can dine à la carte or during the Sunday Brunch Buffet (Until June 24, 2018). They have all the components of a regular buffet with focus on the essentials – the quality, and the service befitting of their brand name. Have a burger made to your liking with full customisation at the burger bar, freshly tossed salad to your specifications to go along with your meat, and the cut of beef to your preferred thickness and finish at the carving station.

The burger and salad station. Go for a double patty or a healthy freshly tossed salad. The chefs on duty are ready to please your cravings.

Cold cuts and salmon are presented along with many other cured meat, sausages and cheeses. A fresh shrimp cocktail is on display and you have the option to send your pickings to the kitchen for cooking. 

They have Livarot my favourite semi-soft cheese along with some Bleu, Emmental, and Gruyère cheese. Fruits and cheese are always a perfect pair. I enjoy figs the most with my rich cheeses.

They have 3-cuts of beef; the seared striploin, prime rib roast, and hanger cut steak with a scoop of their spinach cream siding. They also mashed potato, baked potato, and excellent garlic rice, a good ratio of oil and garlic.


The desserts section is no slouch at Sage with a table loaded of sweet treats such as lemon tarts, cacao squares, and many more. They also have fresh fruits.

The service was excellent throughout my 3-hour with my family. Sunday Brunch at Sage is a must experience, especially when celebrating a special occasion.
