November 28, 2022: 35% off on a Safari and 60% off in the Maldives

Would you rather sunbathe on the beach under the canopy of palm trees or chase the Big 5 in the savannas of Africa? Both are experiences of a lifetime, and both are expensive holidays that require a massive budget. But not today!

A Five-Night Safari Holiday in South Africa–Save 35%

Amakhala Game Reserve is an 18,000-acre private reserve. The Big 5 is a major attraction here, but there are also other native African species that will delight you when you’re out on safaris. Birders can get their fill of birds in the reserve, and you can even go on night safaris and river cruises on Bushman’s River for an exploration of the bush beyond the Big 5.

An all-inclusive stay at the five-star Bukela Game Lodge is 35% off right now. You will pay $1,499 for five nights in a luxury tent with an en suite bathroom from May 1-September 30, 2023, and $2,179 from now until April 30, 2023.

A Five-Night Island Getaway to the Maldives-60% Off Ending Soon

Let’s start with this: There’s a 60% discount on this deal, and it ends on Tuesday, November 29, at midnight. So book fast!

Whatever different shades of blue you can imagine, you’ll find in the Maldives. Barefoot luxury comes at a price, and that price can be quite steep in this island country. So, it’s always delightful to find a big discount on stays here. 

Fairmont Maldives is the ultimate luxury address in the Indian Ocean. The resort has a 650-foot pool (the longest in the Maldives), 120 villas (on the beach, overwater, and in the jungle), a spa, and a variety of activities (picnic on a deserted island, diving trip to house reef, and a coral conservation project).

With the 60% discount, you’ll pay $2,999 for five nights in a 3,875-square-foot Sunrise Beach Villa that has a private plunge pool. For an even more lavish experience, book the Water Sunrise Villa (at $3,799) with a private deck and a plunge pool.

Both come with butler service. Plus, daily breakfast and dinner are included; you get 25% off spa services, and 15% off on diving center activities, and Wi-Fi is complimentary. 

The price is inclusive of service charges and local taxes. You can extend your stay for $599 per night, but remember that there are black-out dates and surcharges are applicable on some days.

November 21, 2022: Massive Discounts on Island Holidays in Fiji and the Maldives

There are two archipelagos—one in the Indian Ocean and the other in the South Pacific—where you can find the trip of a lifetime for a reasonable cost.

The Maldives: Save 63%

Staying on a private island on this Indian Ocean archipelago is a joyous gift. Even more so when it’s an exclusive, five-star resort with top-notch hospitality. Very few travel experiences can beat this. But the price tag often matches the luxury of the Maldives, so if you’re getting a discount on resorts, snatch it up.

Right now, Mercure Maldives Kooddoo Resort is offering 63% off on stays for five nights for two guests. You can book a Beach Villa with a private terrace and outdoor shower for $2,889 (the regular price is $7,744), or check into the swanky Sunset Water Pool Villa for $3,849 (regularly $8,730). All meals and drinks (even alcoholic beverages) are included as well as round-trip domestic transfers from Male, an excursion, and an activity. 


The resort only has 68 rooms, so it’s a private sanctuary. Go scuba diving, plan a cruise, play tennis or beach volleyball, or just get massages. Although you can book now and travel until December 23, 2023, there is a surcharge from December 24, 2022, through May 5, 2023. This deal is also refundable for 14 days, and nine-day stays are also available.

Fiji: Save 40% on an Intimate Seven-Night Cruise

By contrast, this is a completely different holiday. In Fiji, with this deal, you will experience the archipelago of over 300 islands on an intimate cruise. Spend seven nights on the MV Reef Endeavour, which accommodates just 130 people. There are two itineraries that you can choose from: Mamanuca & Yasawa Islands Cruise, where you’ll have a marine adventure on glass-bottomed boats; or Remote North Discovery Cruise, which will introduce you to Fiji’s colorful culture and architecture. Both include all meals, excursions, tours, and water activities, and presentations by a resident marine biologist. 

The cost of booking a Porthole Cabin on the lower deck is $1,299 per person—a massive 40% savings. Staterooms are $1,699 per person, and Suites are $2,099 per person. There are set departure dates running from January to September 2023.

November 14, 2022: 50% off in Mexico and Arizona

Travel costs continue to soar. So, chances are you’ll pay more for travel experiences this winter season. Experts have been warning since September to lock in holiday plans because, as they predicted, it’s getting pricey out there.

That’s why you might be a little more motivated to score better deals and discounts. We’ve found two great hotels that are offering 50% off on stays.

Habitas Tulum—Tulum, Mexico—$999 for Four Nights

Habitas Tulum, about 90 minutes from Cancun airport, is a 32-tent resort with pool, jungle, and ocean rooms. It’s sustainable, laid-back, adults-only, and chill; the kind of place where you can listen to local musicians, join a yoga class, and attend mandala workshops. This Caribbean-front pavilion is home to the in-house restaurant Moro, where you will be served fresh Latin dishes with a touch of Middle Eastern influences. Excursions will bring you joy, too—hikes through the Mayan ruins, surfing in the Caribbean, and dives into underwater caves.

You can book a Jungle Room for four nights for $999. Breakfast is complimentary, and you also get a $50 spa credit. You can book now and travel through September 2023. However, the deal isn’t available from December 23, 2022, to January 3, 2023.

Kay El Bar Guest Ranch—Arizona—$965 for Three Nights

For those who may not want to cross the border, there’s a tempting offer from the Grand Canyon state. Arizona is a treasure trove of nature, culture, and history. Plus, the state has top-rated golf courses and high-end resorts. 

To turn back a page of history, stay at the Kay El Bar Guest Ranch in the Sonoran Desert. It is a dude ranch that welcomed its first guest in 1918 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. A boutique property, it can host up to 25 guests, so your experience will be intimate. After a day of horseback riding, hiking in the desert, or riding bikes, you can soothe your muscles in the heated pool. The dining room is the heart of the property, where meals are served family-style, and a social hour brings everyone together in the evening.

You can stay in a Lodge Room for three nights for $965. The price is inclusive of breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and one activity per day. This is a flexible deal, so you can book now and travel through March 1, 2023. Vouchers are refundable for 14 days.

November 7, 2022: A Five-Night Truffle Hunting Holiday in Tuscany is $999.

Tuscany, Italy, is a food lover’s paradise. Fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients form the heart of every culinary experience. From wine tasting to pasta making, gourmet activities will become a part of your holiday. And if you’re a fan of the mighty truffle, then Tuscany will be a delicious bite for you—it is the land of truffles, after all. 

And right now, there’s a deal on a five-night truffle-hunting trip in Tuscany at Cignella Resort, a farm and villa hotel. For $999, you’ll get a two-bedroom apartment with a kitchen and furnished terrace. Included in the price are a private truffle-hunting experience with an expert, a three-course dinner with truffles, a wine tasting and visit to a 700-year-old winery, and daily breakfast. 

All apartments come with a dishwasher, microwave, oven, washing machine, kettle, TV, and coffee machine, and families can also request cots and high chairs for their little ones.

You can travel between December 5, 2022, and December 20, 2023 (check available dates before booking). This price is for two people for a two-bedroom apartment; four guests will cost $1,479. A three-bedroom villa is also available for $1,539 for two guests. 

The Cignella Estate was built as a pig farm 200 years ago. Now renovated with 13 fully-serviced apartments and villas, this countryside escape offers stunning views of the rolling hills. With a sun terrace and swimming pool, landscaped gardens, and geo-thermal heating and cooling systems, it’s a lovely place to spend time in Tuscany. You can celebrate a special occasion or even host a wedding here—the property can accommodate up to 70 guests. 

There are activities, restaurants, and vineyards close to the property, but hiring a car is highly recommended.

Hi! Regarding Conrad Punta De Mita, there is a mistake in this article with significant consecuenses for travelers... it is not within the private gated community it mentions, it is located in the neighboring area. However, it is set on a beautiful beach!
