Marriott & SPG Offering Luxury Safari Tents @ Coachella, Free Drinks/Ferris Wheel for Elite Members

Coachella, the annual music festival held in the desert outside of Indio, California, is taking place this weekend and next. For the first time ever, Marriott has partnered with Coachella to create safari tents where guests can spend the night on the festival grounds. Eight air conditioned tents were built to embody hotel rooms in Marriott’s lifestyle portfolio including the same furniture, amenities, and décor that you’d find in the hotels. All rooms also come with access to an on-site concierge, special viewing area, private bathrooms with showers, golf cart shuttles to the stages and food / snacks. In addition, all Marriott and SPG elite members at the festival will be given vouchers for free drinks and ferris wheel rides.

The tents were available via SPG Moments (starting at 7,500 points) and the Marriott Rewards Experience Marketplace (starting at 22,500 points) for 4 nights (check-in Thursday and check-out Monday). The final prices were not all that bad either for the 4 nights plus access, SPG Moments went for 145,000-175,000 SPG points while the Marriott experiences were a bit lower (considering the SPG to Marriott 1:3 transfer ratio), ending between 377,000-430,000 Marriott points.
