Oakwood's 50 Nights in 50 Months Competition

Our family loves to travel but our budget limits us to countries within the APEJ region.   A large chunk of that budget is alloted to accomodation.  Its alway a dream to sleep in 4-5 star hotels but lets face it,  you have to pay an arm and a leg for a great location, security,  a decent room and clean sheets.  

For frequent leisure travellers residing in Asia,  the latest contest of Oakwood should be quite exciting.    Entitled “50 Nights in 50 Months”, visitors to the specially designed Oakwood Asia Pacific microsite have a chance to win 50 nights to be used in Oakwood properties across Asia, over 50 months. All that needs to be done on this microsite is to send an e-postcard to friends, describing the meaning of trust.  Each additional e-postcard sent earns an additional chance to win the grand prize. The winner will live the luxe life at Oakwood’s luxurious serviced apartment brands, including the premium Oakwood Premier, designed to cater to the finest of tastes – Oakwood Premier Prestige Bangalore features a functional helipad whereas AZOK, the popular modern Indian roof-top restaurant by Vineet Bhatia, the first Indian chef to be awarded a Michelin star, is housed in Oakwood Premier Mumbai.
