The concept is solely focused on the guest -- it's their extra day to spend exactly as they please," says Nelli Yong, Vice President, Brand Management, Asia Pacific, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc.
From soaking up the charged atmosphere of the bustling Cotai strip at the Sheraton Macao Hotel, Cotai Central to sipping signature cocktails and listening to the crash of the waves by the beach at the unencumbered Sheraton Fiji Resort, 'Your Day' opens up a world of possibility across eight of Starwood's nine compelling and distinctive brands in Asia Pacific, including Sheraton, Westin, Le Meridien, St. Regis, The Luxury Collection, W Hotels, Aloft, and Four Points by Sheraton in the region's most popular destinations.

Whether you are into relaxing resorts amid rich cultural traditions or sophisticated epicurean experiences at the height of urban living, we provide the setting and services that make your day, as our guest, all the more special," adds Ms. Yong.
"We're starting to see a shift in sensibility amongst consumers from a desire to 'own' to a desire to 'experience,' and we're constantly exploring new ways to cater to this," said Nagesh Devata, Head of Acceptance & Merchant Development at MasterCard for Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa. "Partnering with Starwood on this joint promotion is yet another example of MasterCard's commitment to give cardholders Priceless experiences."
