Sometimes that job just doesn’t work out how you planned, or winter’s coldness still lingers in early spring. Perhaps that wedding day is coming quickly and the maid-of-honor needs to fit in one last wild, bachelorette getaway. Then check out the following destinations and resorts to feed your last-minute travel craving.
CARIBBEAN—Sandals and Beaches Resorts
Sandals and Beaches Resorts have some of the best resorts in the Caribbean, and with so many choices—from the upper crust properties with all-butler and all-ocean view rooms to the family orientated hotels with Sesame Street characters and waterparks—Beaches and Sandals have a getaway perfect for you. They offer excellent incentives close to the travel dates, including free massages, air credit, and reduced room rates. The resorts also provide online check-in up to four days before you arrive to help facilitate your relaxing getaway, and you can book treatments online for the Red Lane Spa up to three days prior to arrival.
LATIN AMERICA—Posadas Resorts
From Cancun to Cabo, Posadas have resorts throughout Mexico to give you that perfect last minute vacation. Looking for a modern, all-inclusive resort on the beach, then look no further than Live Aqua, a Be Yourself Hotel for adults. If you’re traveling with children but still want the luxurious touch of Posadas, then stay at the Fiesta Americana Grand in Los Cabos with traditional Mexico cuisine and a wide range of activities to entertain every member of your travel group. Posadas also offers a wide range of promotions, from up to 50% off room rates to complimentary breakfasts and resort credits to entice the impulsive traveler.
After a $1 billion renovation, the new Fontainebleau Resort is the place to stay on South Beach. Voted the Top Building in Florida, the beachfront resort features breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean in many rooms, plasma TV screens and high speed Internet for all accommodations, and one of the most energetic nightclubs in Miami. For singles and couples, the Fontainebleau is close to all the action of South Beach, but for families, the resort has an interactive waterscape area and more than 30 luxury cabanas. For spontaneous guests, the iconic hotel also provides resort credits and bonus nights.
HAWAII—Waikiki Beach Marriott
This 4.5-star resort is a staple in Waikiki and boasts fantastic views of the Pacific Ocean and Diamond Head. Only steps to the sandy beach and lovely waters of the Pacific Ocean, Waikiki Beach Marriott doesn’t offer last-minute deals. It offers year-round deals including reduced room rates and rates bundled with breakfast, so whenever you feel the urge to travel to Hawaii, there is a package and price right for you. You also can use the Marriott app to check-in to your room early and to receive messages from the front desk about the status of your room and reservation.
