We all dreamed of having a world-class vacation, whether somewhere near like in a Nasugbu, Batangas beach resort or out of the country, like in Singapore. Sadly, it seems like we can’t just tick it off our bucket list because it’s crazy expensive.
Want to know a secret? Luxury doesn’t have to cost you an arm and leg. It’s all a matter of being prepared and resourceful. Here’s what you have to do to get that dream luxury vacation:
1. Do your destination research.
Smart travelers know that they make the most out of a trip by knowing their destinations first before going there. Research on the general cost of things in the area—food, transportation, accommodations, and nearby attractions. This way you can plan your trip and avoid unnecessary expenses. Look for a good destination, flight deals, and accommodation at least 6 months early.
2. Consider amenities and facilities of the accommodation.
Not all accommodations offer the same services. Before choosing where to stay, make a list of your needs and preferences. Compare the list to your prospective hotel or resort. Want to eat to your heart’s content? Check for buffet restaurants. Need something personalized such as room scents? Look for hotels that offer these. Listing your priorities will help you decide wisely.
3. Book directly on the website.
If you already have an accommodation in mind, the next step is to book. Book as early as you can. If you want to save more, book directly on the hotel or resort’s website. The best available rates and exclusive deals are usually on the websites so check them first before booking.
4. Go for your dream luxury accommodation.
Don’t think much about how expensive your trip will be. Don’t be guilty for splurging a bit for yourself. You deserve this vacation. So, go book in that dream hotel or resort! The Philippines offers a lot of luxury destinations. In Luzon alone, there are plenty of places to go to: splendid hotels in Tagaytay, beach resorts in Nasugbu, and breathtaking views in Batanes.
Just always keep an eye out for great deals and discounts on your desired accommodation. Luxury hotels and resorts are known for exciting promos every now and then.
So, that dream staycation to a five-star hotel in Metro Manila, a luxurious beach resort in Nasugbu, Batangas, or a remote island abroad? Whatever it is, know that it’s within your reach with these tips!
