Snorkel next to turtles during the day and recharge in an oceanfront room during the evening with this $199-per-night special at a luxe Barbados resort.
Visits at The Fairmont Royal Pavilion are regularly $499 per night, but this deal slices prices for May 26 - June 30. Unwind April 29 - May 21; July 1-19; and Aug. 18 - Sept. 9 for $249 per night.
The AAA 4-Diamond resort has two restaurants, in-room spa services and beach butlers that Fodor's says "cater to your every seaside whim." Plus all guests receive these unique free activities: swimming with turtles (guided by a staff member), nonmotorized water sports like kayaks, afternoon tea and snacks, cocktails on Tuesdays and Internet access.
Venture outside the resort to lounge on one of Barbados' 60 beaches, tour centuries-old buildings, or channel its hometown celebrity, Rihanna, by dancing at the weekly festivals.
This offer is prepaid and nonrefundable. The room fits two adults and one child; book connecting rooms for additional guests. The final rate will include 8.75% in taxes and a 10% room service charge, totaling $37 per night on the $199 rate. Guests also pay a $1.98 (3.96 Bajan dollars) per day levy to support Barbados tourism, but can be removed at checkout upon request.
This deal is not available on: May 9-11, June 11-15 (prices will be higher May 22-25 and June 21-22)
