Three-, Four-, or Five-Night Stay for Two with Daily Rental Car at The Westin Dawn Beach Resort & Spa in St. Maarten

4-Star Seaside Hotel in St. Maarten

When U.S. News Travel crafted its list of the Best Islands in the World, it was looking for more than just pristine beaches—staffers sought out spots that had what they referred to as a “magical spark.” They found it on “feisty” St. Maarten, a 37-mile island surrounded by the aquamarine Caribbean Sea and filled with restaurants, nightclubs, and casinos. The Westin Dawn Beach Resort & Spa is nestled between St. Maarten’s French-owned north and Dutch-owned south, atop a serene strip of beach named for its stunning sunrises.

The hotel takes advantage of its prime location on the island’s east coast. A waterfront pool faces sailboats cruising past or being slowly sucked into the horizon, and many of the 310 guest rooms overlook the ocean—and so does the fine-dining steak house, Aura. Play blackjack or slots at the onsite Vegas-style casino, or unwind with massage treatments at Hibiscus Spa before heading down to the pool for drinks at the swim-up bar. Many beaches are located close by, and you can explore the island easily with the rental car included in this getaway.

St. Maarten: Island Paradise with Split Cultural Heritage

Located in the northern Caribbean, the 37-square-mile island of St. Maarten has been peacefully shared by the French and the Dutch for more than 350 years, giving the island two very distinct yet harmonious personalities. On the southern Dutch side, crowds gravitate toward the neon-lit clubs and live-music bars at Simpson Bay. When those establishments close, revelers make their way to the 24-hour casinos. The northern French side, meanwhile, is more secluded and less developed. It has some gorgeous beaches, and the emphasis here is on relaxation.

To get an understanding of St. Maarten’s blend of cultural influences, consider its restaurant scene, which encompasses more than 400 eateries. Many travelers praise the authentic French cuisine and fine wines at Grand Case Beach Club on the French side, known as the Culinary Capital of the Caribbean. Casual barbecue restaurants, known as lolos, are located along the beach and serve up spicy shrimp, ribs, chicken, and heaping helpings of side dishes complemented by guava-berry rum. The quieter Back Street, on the Dutch side, is lined with some authentic—and inexpensive—Chinese eateries.

Both parts of the island boast crystal-clear bays filled with palatial coral structures and tropical fish. Take a guided snorkeling trip to Pinel Island, or to Creole Rock to see reef-ringed boulders. Deep-sea fishing charters send anglers out in search of marlin, blackfin tuna, and wahoo.

$1,772 for a Five-Night Stay and Safari Package in South Africa (Up to $3,109 Value)

Upscale Lodge at South African Game Reserve

Zebras freely roam the grounds of the Royal Kruger Lodge, located on the periphery of South Africa’s Kruger National Park. Comprising several game reserves, the massive park is home to more than 60 mammal species—including lions, rhinos, and leopards—as well as about 500 different types of birds and reptiles. This six-day, five-night adventure from Royal Kruger Lodge gives you a chance to observe these fascinating creatures on three guided excursions.

This Getaway does not include airfare to Royal Kruger Lodge.

On two guided, open-vehicle game drives in Kruger National Park, vehicles weave through shimmering plains and endless acres of native Bushveld on safaris lasting upwards of seven hours. The trip also includes a bush orientation walk—a two- or three-hour guided inspection of the grounds surrounding the lodge of Marloth Park. During these walks, guides point out animal tracks, monkeys occasionally put in an appearance, and yellow-billed hornbills aggressively hawk souvenir T-shirts.

One of 10 air-conditioned, thatched-roof double or twin rooms provides a respite from the wilderness. The en suite baths are fully stocked, though you might want to give the refreshing outdoor shower a try. Three daily meals include traditional boma dinners, wherein four courses of African cuisine are served before a roaring fire and mesmerizing sunset. On off-days, you can grab a drink or take a dip in the pool by the lapa, a cool oasis frequented by birds and zebras looking for a break from the heat.

What You Get

$1,772 for a five-night, six-day stay and safari package for two adults

  • Accommodations in a double or twin room at Royal Kruger Lodge in Marloth Park
  • Full breakfast, light lunch, and four-course dinner each day

One- or Two-Night Stay for Two with a Bottle of Wine at The Carisbrooke Inn in New Jersey

Bed and Breakfast Steps from Atlantic Ocean

Happy hour on the ocean-view front deck of The Carisbrooke Inn is a fittingly festive occasion. Revelers chat and laugh over snacks and drinks, pausing occasionally to take in views of the Atlantic Ocean just 300 feet away. One woman from Philadelphia says she’s a regular, dropping by “every other weekend, at least.” She smiles as she explains why: “This place is a gift.”

The inn offers the late-afternoon refreshments year-round. On days when it’s too chilly to stand out on the deck, they’re served in front of a cozy fireplace. Further evidence of The Carisbrooke’s attention to detail can be found in its helpful concierge services—a boon for those seeking show tickets or dinner reservations in nearby Atlantic City—as well as a daily country breakfast made of fresh fruit, homemade breads, and fresh blueberry pancakes.

The inn’s elegant interior features high ceilings, ornate moldings, and period furniture. A palette of warm colors graces the spacious guest rooms, and bathrooms are outfitted with jetted tubs and steam showers. The inn even has a piano and a guitar to facilitate sing-alongs or the breeding of keytars.

Ventnor City, New Jersey: Historical Seaside Hamlet Near Atlantic City Bustle

The Carisbrooke Inn is located in Ventnor City, minutes away from Atlantic City. The town reportedly derives its name from a seaside resort on the Isle of Wight in the English Channel. Today, Ventnor City remains a small, old-fashioned beach community filled with quaint shops and restaurants, most of which lie within walking distance of the inn. The area provides a quiet alternative to the hustle and bustle of Atlantic City, but it’s still close enough to enjoy all that the Monopoly city has to offer. A good place to start, of course, is the boardwalk, a legendary 6-mile pleasure promenade lined with glitzy casinos, restaurants, and hucksters trying to unload their useless Baltic Avenue holdings.

What You Get

Stay for two in a king room

  • $79 for a one-night stay, valid Sunday–Thursday
  • $125 for a two-night stay, valid for check-in Sunday–Wednesday
  • $189 for a two-night stay, valid for check-in Thursday–SaturdayIncluded in all options:
  • Bottle of Sicilian wine (red or white)

Amenities

  • Daily homemade breakfast

$399 for a Seven-Night Resort Stay from World Resorts International (Up to $1,500 Value)

Weeklong Vacation at One of Hundreds of North American Destinations

Though home is where the heart is, only on vacation do humans find their thrill kidneys and adventure spleens. Complete your pan-global personhood with a getaway from World Resorts International, which boasts hundreds of destinations in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Available inventory varies and is updated regularly. A seven-night stay at a WRI vacation rental has a retail average of around $1,500, and customers can redeem this deal for a stay at any available participating property in the United States, Canada, or Mexico. Purchasers do not need to buy a WRI membership and will not hear any sales pitches about timeshare rentals.

World Resorts International’s vacation destinations are strewn across the continent, and each offers its own luxurious amenities. WRI’s resort menu runs the gamut from Hawaii’s paradise to Mexico’s pristine white-sand beaches to Vermont’s unfathomable maple-syrup grottos. Travelers can frolic among the palm fronds of Maui or set skis swooshing from a base camp in Park City, Utah. Mexican destinations include the some of the world’s premier vacation destinations and chief exporters of cocktail umbrellas.

Typically, properties house four guests (accommodations vary in size), but WRI does not charge extra for any number of guests within the room’s maximum occupancy. All taxes, gratuities, and fees are covered for stays in the continental United States; additional taxes may apply in Mexico and Hawaii. Room reservations can be made starting 60 days from the travel date, and accommodations must be reserved before the expiration date. Aside from brokering exclusive accommodations, World Resorts International ponies up other travel simplifiers for members (not included in this deal) such as rental-car specials, concierge services, and memory-storing fanny packs.

$119 for a One-Night Stay and Drinks for Two at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel Chicago (Up to $199 Value)

When looking at it from a distance, the Aqua building’s façade seems to ripple and cascade; that’s due to its funky, irregularly curved balconies, which jut out in undulating patterns against bluish-green reflective windows. The modern skyscraper, which soars up 82 stories over Lake Michigan, is the tallest woman-designed skyscraper in the world. And inside this landmark tower resides the brand-new Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel Chicago, which rests above famous destinations such as Navy Pier and the Magnificent Mile, steps away from renowned Millennium Park.

A sense for the chic characterizes sleek, pet-friendly city-view guest rooms such as the spa-like Naturally Cool pad, its design scheme featuring light hardwood floors amid splashes of blue décor. There’s a regal feel to the Mansion House room, which dons black slate in the bathroom, dark wood floors, a king bed wrapped in sumptuous linens, and opulent guest-room details. At night, large windows present an unhindered view of Chicago’s glittering lights and disoriented seagulls.

Downstairs in the hip Filini Lounge, guests can sip two signature cocktails as they scan the menu, which presents creatively prepared mini plates of Italian cuisine. An 8,000-square-foot fitness center lays out ample space to stretch, and a 25-meter lap pool, cabanas, and a 1/5-mile running track comprise the 70,000-square-foot outdoor garden behind the hotel.

What You Get

  • One-night stay for two adults and up to two kids in a city-view room
  • Two specialty cocktails at Filini Lounge

Amenities

  • 70,000-square-foot outdoor lifestyle garden with pool, running track, and cabanas
