Vacationist: Greece, Palm Beach, Amalfi Coast, Hot Springs
July may be on its way out the door, but there’s still plenty of time to book a dream getaway before the summer is up! Just hop on over to Vacationist.com, sign up for a membership, and take advantage of the fantastic values offered for luxury hotels around the world!
The Elounda Mare Hotel in Greece, overlooking Crete's turquoise Mirabello Bay, offers spectacular views of the sea and distant mountains. (If you’d like to avoid the energetic beach scene, we suggest opting for one of the roomier Deluxe Bungalows situated farther from the sand—with their own private patios and saltwater pools, it’ll be your own private paradise.)
The Elounda Peninsula All Suite Hotel boasts stunning views of the Bay of Elounda, Mirabello Bay, and the Aegean Sea. (There isn’t a room you can book that doesn’t have waterfront views.) Want to really go all out? Book the Royal Grande Suite and you’ll get your own private elevator and staff quarters!
With nearly 125 years of history under its belt, old meets new at The Breakers Palm Beach (pictured above). The sprawling resort—540 rooms set on 140 acres—is currently undergoing a redesign to keep the look fresh (think white and sand tones), and with five Oceanside pools, nine restaurants, two golf courses, a spa, and luxury shopping—oh, and the beach!—you won’t be wanting for something to do.
Situated some 600 feet above the Tyrrhenian on Italy’s gorgeous Amalfi Coast, Furore Inn Resort’s intimate setting—there are just 22 rooms!—delivers classic Italian style (think upholstered headboards and glazed Vietri tile floors). No matter which room you book, you’ll be facing the water, but the Duplex Suites deliver the best views.
At more than 240 years old, the Homestead Resort (above) in Hot Springs, VA transports you back to a simpler time in Colonial America…but with a modern twist. With outdoor activities like canoeing, nature walks, and even falconry to keep you active during the day, ask for one of the suites with a sun porch or fireplace to really help you relax before bed.
Don’t forget: the deals offered on Vacationist are available for a limited time, so be sure to take advantage right away! (And don’t worry; if you're not looking to get away this summer, you can book your trip for down the road!)
