Free to join, iPrefer is the world’s largest guest loyalty program for independent hotels, which extends points redeemable towards free nights and other on-property expenditures, elite status, and other complimentary benefits to guests at more than 600 participating Preferred Hotels & Resorts properties worldwide.

A prime addition to our brand portfolio, The Chedi Mumbai will provide discerning urban travelers with an exciting new experience in this vibrant city. We look forward to working closely with the GHM team as the opening approaches and to paving a road for more collaboration opportunities in the future,” said Saurabh Rai, Executive Vice President, Preferred Hotels & Resorts.

The Chedi Mumbai's collaboration with Preferred Hotels & Resorts will not only leverage this luxury lifestyle concept for Mumbai’s elite, but will also amplify our strategic efforts to reach out to discerning travellers on an international level. We are certainly looking forward to a successful partnership with Preferred Hotels & Resorts,” said Giulio D'Alberto, General Manager of The Chedi Mumbai.
