JS Editors’ Favorite Hotel Deals of the Week
Each week, we're bringing you a curated list of our favorite Flash Sales—luxurious hotels up for grabs that you can score (for a limited time) at a fraction of their original rate.
This week's theme: Five-Star Stays
The neo-Renaissance façade of De L’Europe Amsterdam, an 1896 landmark hotel fronting the Amstel River, is just a prelude to what old-world beauty awaits inside. Included in the 111 rooms (currently up to 49% off) are Dutch Masters suites and artist lofts decorated with blown-up details of Old Master paintings and even a Van Gogh room whose twinkling ceiling echoes Starry Night. There’s lots to see in Amsterdam proper, but it’s worth sticking around for a meal at Michelin-starred Bord’Eau shines with its elegant global cuisine (Norwegian scallops drizzled with yuzu and sesame; venison over Savoy cabbage and bacon), and there's even a dedicated cigar lounge with its own walk-in humidor.
The hotels on Montenegro’s Adriatic Coast rival some of the most luxurious properties in European but have nowhere near the foot traffic (or prices). The five-star Regent Porto Montenegro is one of them, thanks to its enviable address overlooking a yacht-filled marina and its award-winning spa featuring a vitality pool and holistic treatments. After dropping your bags (rooms are up to 44% off right now), it might prove hard to settle on where to head first—the 130-foot infinity pool ringed by palm trees and overlooking the mountains, or the Murano restaurant, where you can choose between the grand dining room (think high ceilings, chandeliers, and Murano-glass artworks) or intimate Italian garden.
If you’re looking for barefoot luxury, head to Santorini. If you’re looking for barefoot luxury and sand, it’s time to book yourself into Nikki Beach Resort & Spa—where you can score as much as 44% off if you book this week. At this brand-new sleep fronting Monolithos beach, you'll be surrounded by views of the Aegean, but there's more to it than just the water. Expect 62 rooms decked out with blonde-wood fixtures and elevated beds, three restaurants, a rooftop bar, a signature Nikki Spa, and, this being Nikki Beach, a buzzy beach club that keeps the energy up even after the sun goes down.
San Diego, CA
If you’re looking for luxury, this five-star, Spanish-Colonial-style Fairmont Grand del Mar on 380 hilly acres near Del Mar is the perfect place to stay. Guest rooms, which you can score for up to 53% off this week, are palatial and old-world with marble bathrooms, silk curtains and hand-stenciled ceilings, while the amenities—a championship golf course, a 20,000-square-foot spa, six dining options including the five-star Addison—keep it at the top of the line. There are no ocean views, but you won’t miss them thanks to the property’s four pools (one is adults only), private stables, and proximity to the Los Peñasquitos Canyon Preserve, where hikers and equestrians can explore hundreds of trails. Still craving those water views? The hotel's car service in a Mercedes or Cadillac is available to whisk guests to the beach.
It's only a matter of time before the crowds descend on Antigua's glittery new Royalton Antigua Resort & Spa—all the more reason to jump on this week's deal. Suites are up to 45% off right now and as luxurious as it gets this side of the Caribbean, with ocean or mountain views and semi-private pools if you splurge on Diamond Club. The beach is secluded and the spa is restorative, but what we love most are the options to indulge our stomachs: no less than seven restaurants are open all day to satisfy whatever craving, be it sirloin steaks, Italian pastas, or Caribbean jerk chicken, you have in between between rum-infused drinks by the pool and snacks at the beachside barbecue.
