There are resort discounts to be had too. Here’s a selection of nine of them, including cool deals from flash deal websites SniqueAway and Jetsetter. Most of these deal have to be booked before the end of June (if not sooner) but allow of stays throughout the summer.
Here’s are our current favorite deals. Each is good only for the next five days, though rooms can be booked many months in advance.
Live Aqua Cancun All-Inclusive – Cancun
You know a resort is chill when they provide each of their guests with sandals and beach bag. This all-inclusive features eight pools, each kept at a different temperature. Normally $500+ per night, SniqueAway’s current deal is for $325. Pic above.
Palomar – Philadelphia
Kimpton’s boutique property feels more like a resort than an urban hotel. The King Spa Room features a Fuji soak tub; usually $309, now $195.
Serenity Resort & Residences – Phuket, Thailand
Watch your seafood being grilled as you look out over the water at this romantic resort on Phuket Island. Through this deal a Garden Suite is as low as $125.
Jetsetter specializes in more experiential resort experiences, like the summer camp for adults we featured two weeks ago. They also have deals on cool resorts where you can make your own experiences. Such as:
The Calabash Hotel – Grenada, Caribbean
An unassuming, sparsely populated 8-acre resort with one of the best restaurants in the whole of the Caribbean. You can get a suite through Jetsetter for as low as $190 per night (as opposed to the usual $308) but we think it’s worth the extra $70 for a pad with beach views and your own private pool.
The Farm – Batangas, Philippines
No place called “The Farm” has ever been so luxurious. Save $100 off the regular $280 per night rate. Plus, stay five nights and get a $200 towards room service.
The Hotel Alyeska – Girdwood, Alaska
Hike to hanging glaciers and dine at Alaska’s only mountaintop four diamond restaurant. $150 through Jetsetter, down from $239.
As with SniqueAway, you need an invitation to join Jetsetter. Happily for you, Dear Reader, you can get your invite here.
