Essentially, these prestigious club rooms allow you to live the high life and rub shoulders with the globetrotting elite, not to mention getting access to all these refreshments, canapés, cocktails and more, all for free!
So if you don’t want to settle into a boring old hotel room, check out these 10 amazing club rooms and be prepared to be treated like royalty.
Note: The prices reflected below are the low season rates, and they exclude tax and service charges. Accommodation rates often change with room availability, and low or high seasons. We recommend double checking for the final prices before confirming your booking.1. Sign up for a royal affair – InterContinental Bali Resort
InterContinental Bali Resort gets lots of kudos for its exclusive club rooms. Needless to say, the resort treats its club-level guests like royalties. And while you’re in for an array of perks like round-the-clock butler service and private pool access, it is their Club InterContinental Lounge that is the masterpiece.

The lounge overlooks the stunning lagoon and operates from 6.30pm to 11pm. It is a hive of activity for club-level guests because of its daily offerings – from the exclusive cocktail bar and kitchens, club guests get to choose from a wide range of complimentary food and beverage options.
You could opt to enjoy your delectable breakfast right at the lounge or at any of the four additional breakfast venues around the resort. But why take your first meal of the day with everyone else when you can indulge far away from the pesky public, right?! 😉

Aside from the Club Lounge treats, you get to enjoy chic palatial rooms that are sprinkled on a private wing of the resort with privacy and intimacy in mind – it is indeed a perfect upgrade to consider if you’re travelling with your special one!
