California’s Mendocino coast, three hours north of San Francisco, is wild and rugged. It’s home to beaches, lighthouses, farm-to-fork cafes, beautiful botanical gardens, and — of course — winery tasting rooms. One seaside property in the area, Little River Inn, is offering rates as low as $159 per night this winter.
If you’ve always thought that Cannes was the exclusive domain of the glitzy elite, think again. A vacation in this posh French community by the sea is now more accessible, thanks to an off-season promotion at the 4.5-star Hotel Majestic Barriere. This offer takes 75 percent off fall and winter stays, lowering rates to $174 per night.
With expanses of blue ocean everywhere, you wouldn’t think that Hawaii would need man-made swimming lagoons. But the ones at Ko Olina, on Oahu’s southwest coast, achieve something improbable on this naturally picture-perfect island: they’re beautiful.
Winter stays in sleek and chic Miami Beach — where the weather is sublime while other parts of the country are freezing — will unsurprisingly cost you a small fortune. But if you can swing a trip during the fall shoulder season, there’s a significant dip in hotel prices that makes a comfortable escape more manageable. Case in point: Special rates as low as $119 per night at Villa Bagatelle, a new French-inspired boutique hotel open since the spring.
Here’s a little secret: Construction often yields price breaks at hotels. That’s the case this month at the 5-star The Resort at Pedregal in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, which is situated on cliffs overlooking the Sea of Cortez. This resort, which is the #2-ranked hotel in Cabo San Lucas on TripAdvisor, is within walking distance of bars and restaurants in downtown Cabo and the Marina. Through September 30, the rate has been slashed by 65 percent. While construction isn’t affecting guests’ ability to use the resort, the threat of occasional noise prompted the hotel to publish this offer. Read more
Ready for a new place to stay in Yosemite National Park? Say hello to Rush Creek Lodge, which debuts in the park area in June. It’ll be the sister property of Evergreen Lodge, which is just a half-mile west of the park’s Highway 120 West entrance, and is the first hotel to open near the park in more than 25 years. Even better: The hotel is already taking reservations for its 2016 opening, and, if you book soon, you’ll be able to apply a $100 credit toward your stay.
As we near the end of summer, there’s one thing we’re looking forward to: lower airfare this fall. And if you’re hoping to hop aboard a plane to far-flung locales, you’re in luck. Cathay Pacific — consistently voted a top airline by Skytrax and other industry experts — is offering round-trip flights in economy to select destinations in India, from $766 per person.
Is it just us or did September fly by? Before you know it, the holidays will be upon us — and, luckily for those looking to spend a few days of the yuletide season in New York City, the four Kimpton hotels there are offering up to 40 percent off. That’s as low as $162 per night, a huge bargain in the spendy city.
Is there anything dreamier than a trip to Hawaii? In case swaying palm trees and soft, sandy beaches aren’t enough to convince you, consider two offers from Maui’s Honua Kai Resort and Spa — offering suite stays for as low as $230 per night this fall.
