Newstead Belmont Hills Golf Resort – up to 40% off
On an island known for clear water and posh hotels, this harbor-side Bermuda resort, complete with classic white rooms and breezy terraced pools and pavilions, exudes a sense of unexpected Caribbean cool. It's an intoxicating mix: families return year after year, and that's not just because of the far-reaching views over Hamilton Harbour and the pink-sand bay. Take a few swings at the nearby Algie M. Pulley-designed golf course or laze under the hot Bermuda sun on one of the loungers by the infinity pool. But if after all the golfing, swimming, and tennis (there are two clay courts on-site) you're eager to get out and explore the island, Newstead's complimentary water taxi service will ferry you to nearby Hamilton.

Hotel Punta Islita – up to 40% off
Playa Samara, Costa Rica
This honeymooner favorite—complete with an on-site mango orchard—is set on a sprawling 80-acre hillside that overlooks a remote Pacific beach is. The graceful—and very private—earth-tone rooms have rustic accents (think: hammocks and thatch roofs) but don't skimp on amenities (sumptuous villas come with private plunge pools). Upon arrival, guests are assigned a dedicated concierge, who can arrange everything from tandem massages on the beach to intimate dinners in the privacy of your ocean-view bungalow.
