Contrary to the belief of many travellers, luxury need not be expensive because there are destinations like resorts in Hua Hin where you will enjoy a great travel experience without breaking the bank. Mid-range to high-end resorts is affordable even for the budget conscious. Another option is to look for destinations that are not experiencing peak season like the Caribbean.
Every summer, many holidaymakers prefer to have a change of scenery and they head south to the Caribbean to enjoy cool breezes, un-crowded beaches and discounted room rates. Many of the top-notch resorts charge high fees during peak season which is from December to May. Because the hurricane season is from June to November, travel costs are lower and beaches are not so crowded.
In St. Maarten, you will find luxurious 129-suite Sonesta Ocean Point Resort that is right on the beach and close to airport. The newly opened Serenity Spa in the seaside resort is considered a haven for rejuvenation. There are also 3 rooftop bars where you can enjoy fruity margaritas. Adults can enjoy discounted rates on the suites from July to August. There is a 40% savings compared to winter rates.
At St. Martin which is on the French side of the island, you will find Grand Case Beach Club with discounted nightly summer rates that extend to the end of October. The casual but chic beachfront resort comes with the Sunset Café where you can get your fill of freshly baked croissants. The beach resort is your perfect destination if you want to escape the summer heat in your own country.
The summer season is perhaps the only time when you can enjoy luxury in the Caribbean for less. At the Four Seasons Anguilla, you will pay top dollar during the winter season to enjoy resort-view rooms, outdoor sundecks and infinity pools.
Luxury for less can also be experienced at the resorts in Hua Hin. It is also a convenient location for your destination wedding. You can have a classic ballroom experience or a fun BBQ feast at the beach. You also have the option of a garden party where you can dance into the night.
