It was featured in the spring 2010 issue of ShermansTravel, but it’s such a great deal, we decided to feature it on Daily Deals as well. The summer is the best time to check out luxury Caribbean resorts that are super pricey during the high season, especially because islands like St. Bart’s aren’t unbearably hot thanks to the cool breezes and temperate climate. (Plus the off-season means that the boutiques have great sales and the beaches are less crowded.) Frequented by high society “snow birds” during the winter season, the famed Eden Rock has summer packages with rates that are 42% off the January-April prices. A boutique oceanfront hotel, the Eden Rock’s accommodations range from a charming garden cottage to the new spacious, high-design villas, each with their own unique personality and amenities. It’s the perfect setting for a fairytale beach getaway to one of the Caribbean’s prettiest islands.
THE VALUE: With the 4-day, 3-night Pick Me Up package, rates start at 395 euros or $510 — 42% percent less than high-season rates. Plus, a stay at the Eden Rock is packed with amenities including airport transfers, welcome wine and snack, daily breakfast and free use of a car.
THE CATCH: Book a minimum of three nights for the offer. Cancellations less than 29 days before will result in forfeit of deposit; for cancellations 10 days and less, the total stay will be charged. *The resort is closed August 29-October 16.
THE DETAILS: Check the Eden Rock web site for prices and details. Call 877-563-7105 for reservations.
