Vacationist: French Polynesia, Texas, and Dominican Republic
While Labor Day may serve as a sad reminder that the summer is coming to an end, who cares if the days are about to start getting cooler? Don’t let that stop you from booking a fantastic retreat! With that in mind, we’d like to bring your attention to the three new fab getaways being offered at Vacationist.com:
Moorea Pearl Resort & Spa – up to 42% off
Moorea, French Polynesia
Whether you book the garden pool or overwater bungalow, you won’t be disappointed here. Surrounded by water the richest hue of blue you can imagine, booking a vacation here is booking a vacation in paradise, literally. Spend the days wandering the island’s pineapple plantations, the evenings enjoying fire-dancing demonstrations, and—for the super adventurous—book an appointment with the hotel’s native tattoo artist for a traditional (and permanent) souvenir.
Hotel Valencia Riverwalk – up to 42% off
San Antonio, TX
Situated alongside San Antonio’s picturesque cypress tree–lined Riverwalk, this property exudes both sleekness and warmth in its décor, from the guestrooms’ leather headboards and faux-mink throws, to the cushioned teak chairs and crackling fireplace in the third floor courtyard.
The Palace at Playa Grande – up to 33% off
Rio San Juan, Dominican Republic
Not only is the retreat located on one of the more desirable vacation destinations around, but there are also only 21 rooms available, assuring not only peace and quiet, but ample attention from the hotel’s staff. Try to book the glass-fronted suites that have been carved into a cliff; each faces the ocean and are just steps away from the white sand beach.
