Hotel Deals: TODAY Show + Vacationist
If your New Year's resolution is to travel more, T+L Digital Projects Editor Sarah Spagnolo shares a handful of hotel deals—so you can get there for less.
Hotel Antumalal – up to 40% off
Set in the eastern corner of Chile's glacier-topped Lake District, Pucón was barely a blip on the travelers' map when the Hotel Antumalal set the standard in 1950. More than 60 years later, the Bauhaus-style gem remains one of the iconic places to stay in a destination popular for adventure experiences and its proximity to Chile's southern wine regions. Conceptualized by Chilean architect Jorge Elton, who collaborated with the Czech owners Don Guillermo and Catalina Pollak, the streamlined, cylindrical hotel is set improbably on the edge of a volcanic cliff on the southeastern shore of Lake Villarrica; panoramic windows along the outer edge allow for unobstructed views of the chestnut and pine trees and the deep blue lake. The 16 rooms, complete with log-burning fireplaces, sheepskin rugs, and retro furniture (tree-trunk nightstands; original 1950s tables), may be on the smaller side, but not surprisingly, most travelers spend their time outdoors. More than 12 acres of forest surround the property, and guests take in the nearby waterfalls and gardens from the hotel's stone paths and private terraces. (Sale ends in 4 days.)
Ardanaiseig - up to 44% off
A landmarked Scottish estate originally built as a private home in 1834, this country hotel on beautiful Loch Awe is a popular romantic getaway for couples from Glasgow and Edinburgh. The hotel's name, which means "ferry point" in Gaelic, is a nod to the importance of the lake, which supplies the fresh wild salmon to the property's award-winning restaurant. Many of the 18 guest rooms—all of which are individually decorated in vibrant shades of pink, red, or blue—enjoy magnificent lake views. Adding to the allure is an in-house whiskey expert who oversees tastings of world-renowned local brands. (The hotel is, after all, just 40 minutes from Oban.) The expansive grounds include a "secret" walled garden, and the property outfits guests for fishing right outside its door. (Sale ends in 4 days.)
