Vacationist Hotel Deals: Places to Wear White All Year

201108-b-miramontejpg

Trying to wear your linen pants and white jeans as much as possible before Labor Day?  There’s no need to cram it all in before Monday: this week, Vacationist is offering a handful of deals to destinations where white jeans—not to mention flip-flops, sun hats, and wispy tunics—are de rigueur all year long. So forget fall fashion. Book your endless summer now.

201108-b-fairmountjpgMiramonte Resort & Spa - up to 56% off
Indian Wells, California

With red-tiled roofs, Moorish archways, and buildings named Villa Capri, Villa Naples, and The Portofino, the Miramonte Resort and Spa will make you think you are in the Mediterranean. But the arid desert breezes, insistent sunshine, and looming rocky outcrops in the distance remind you that you're in southern California's Coachella Valley. The 215 rooms and suites are scattered among two-story villa buildings, with rich brown, gold, and rust interiors and touches like citrus and lavender Italian bath amenities, marble-topped vanities and baths, and overstuffed comforters and pillows. Sun beds, fire pits, and cabanas line the two large pools. The centerpiece of the resort is the $3.5 million, 12,000-square-foot Well Spa with its oil paintings, candles, saltwater pool, and signature treatments like bagno vino (wine baths). (Sale ends in 4 days.)

Marquis Boutique Hotel & Spa - up to 40% off
Anse Marcel, St. Martin

The island of St. Martin/St. Maarten is known for its 36 white-sand beaches and some of the Caribbean's best shopping and restaurants scenes. Those looking for a secluded home base are well served at the Marquis Boutique Hotel and Spa, a hideaway on Pigeon Pea Hill just a five-minute walk to the cove beach of Anse Marcel, one of the island's prettiest stretches of white sand. Here, 17 colorful, Caribbean-style rooms, all with terracotta-tile floors, are furnished with comfortable woven-cane armchairs and pastel throw pillows that complement the abstract paintings by local artist Francis Eck. For cocktails at sunset, every room has a private terrace with a table, café chairs, and a hammock with views of the sparkling Caribbean Sea. (Sale ends in 5 days.)

Fairmont Royal Pavilion - up to 53% off
St. James, Barbados

This Caribbean icon, inspired by nearby plantation houses, reopened on the western shore of Barbados in late 2010 after a two-month renovation that added 24 junior suites, each with a private terrace, Caribbean views, and butler service. All 72 rooms, a mere eight miles from Bridgetown, the island's capital, fuse colonial style with Caribbean cool, with cream-colored walls, rich walnut-wood furnishings, and original commissioned artwork. For half the year the resort is adults and teens only; couples unwind at the spa, dine on fresh-caught seafood at two top-notch restaurants (the blackened seared red snapper with cucumber lemon aioli is a must-try), and snorkel, windsurf, and kayak without the squeals of little ones. From the middle of March through October, however, the Royal Pavilion welcomes families, offering complimentary kid-friendly daily activities such as storytelling and arts and crafts. (Sale ends in 6 days.)
