As more resorts and hotels up the ante in luxury travel, guests of Hotel Fouquet’s Barriere now have the option to travel like a VIP jetsetter by hopping in a chopper in Paris and landing in Deauville, a beachside town in northwest France.
Rather than renting a car, guests of the ultra-luxe hotel can escape the hustle and bustle of the city by boarding a private helicopter for the a 45-minute ride to Deauville. The town offers visitors boutique shopping, gambling at Casino Barriere, and sunny beachside strolls. After a day at the beach, jet back to Paris for a luxurious night at the five-star hotel.
The offer – valid until December 26, 2012, and priced at about $6,432 for an Executive Room – includes one night in a room or suite at Hotel Fouquet’s Barriere, transfer via car from the hotel to the Paris Heliport, round-trip helicopter transport to Deauville, and a beach picnic prepared by an award-winning chef. A VIP welcome and breakfast at the Hotel Fouquet’s Barriere is also included.
Talk about arriving in style. As a part of the Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana’s Endless Privileges program (which has some sweet perks), guests who book and stay for at least seven nights in a Junior Ocean Front Suite or higher can be transported via helicopter from the airport to the resort. The 20-minute helicopter ride, which detours for a little sightseeing, can accommodate two people and is valued at $520 for a one-way trip.
The resort, which is on the northeast coast of the Dominican Republic, offers a slew of amenities with its Endless Privileges program. Guests can book a 45-minute horseback riding tour (valued at $125/person) on the beach, complete with a guide to teach how to ride. Unlimited premium brand beverages, a 20-minute spa session, daily meals and fresh fruit baskets, and more are provided as a part of the program, for which guests automatically qualify by staying at the resort.
2012 rates start at $284 per person, per night based on doubt occupancy.
