Truth be told, we’ve been obsessing over the Farmhouse Inn—in Sonoma, California’s Russian River Valley—since the property’s renovation in 2009. And now that Vacationist is offering rates of almost 30% off at the 18-room hotel, you may find us at tasting local wines with the property’s master sommelier, or perhaps unwinding after a treatment at the hotel’s rustic spa. Prefer exclusive beach villas to country charm? This week Vacationist brings you Cabo San Lucas and Phuket, as well.

The Farmhouse Inn - up to 29% off
Forestville, California
Northern California's Sonoma County is quickly giving better-branded neighbor Napa a run for its money, even if the region's lodgings lag slightly behind in luxury. Sonoma's Farmhouse Inn is poised to change all that. The place is family-run, friendly, and down-home, but spares no expense in treating guests like visiting royalty. Sure, the two rooms in the converted barn may not sound like much, but throw in modern stone fireplaces, hand-woven fabrics, elegant furniture, four-poster beds, private decks, and Jacuzzi tubs, and you'll feel like you're at a truly unique five-star hotel… (Sale ends in 5 days.)

Villa Las Palmas - up to 20% off
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
The Villa Las Palmas delivers the exclusivity of a grand private residence for up to 20 beachgoers. But the 13,000-square-foot property offers more than just access to Baja's sandy shores and the area's world-class diving. Inside, large bedrooms and common spaces have marble floors, crown moldings, and panoramic windows, and the state-of-the-art kitchen has stainless-steel appliances (including a Viking range)…. (Sale ends in 8 days.)

Outrigger Laguna Phuket Resort and Villas
Phuket, Thailand
With 70 expansive two-, three- and four-bedroom bi-level villas outfitted with lustrous wood furnishings, the lushly landscaped property is a bit like bunking at a second home. Naturally, creature comforts include Wi-Fi, a ceramic cooktop, and a washer—but why waste your days doing laundry? Round-the-clock butler service ensures you'll never lift a pinkie, except to apply suntan lotion as you bask on the spotless four-mile Bang Tao Beach….
