Two of the excellent, but often exorbitantly priced One&Only Resorts are now easy-to-justify splurges. With discount rates and well-priced airfare available this spring through fall, you can vacation in the lap of luxury without breaking the bank.
One&Only Ocean Club, Bahamas
The Deal: The chic One&Only Ocean Club in the Bahamas—with its terraced Versailles-like gardens, sumptuous rooms, oceanfront suites, and fabulous beachside Dune restaurant—makes A-listers swoon. The pretty columned main house and lobby also served as the backdrop for Daniel Craig's breakout James Bond flick, Casino Royale. Friends and families can save big now through fall with the Ocean Club's golden anniversary offer; reserve one room and receive 50 percent off the second room when staying four nights or more.
The Details: Rates start from $625/night for the first room (Garden View) and $313/night for the second room. The offer is valid for travel May 1 through December 20, excluding November 21-25.
Book It: Call 888/865-6829 and mention the Golden Anniversary Sale.
One&Only Palmilla, Los Cabos
The Deal: The One&Only Palmilla was the first resort built in Los Cabos and remains one of the best, thanks to its romantic ambience and personalized service, phenomenal Jean-Georges Vongerichten-helmed Market restaurant, and 172 gorgeous sea-facing accommodations, all with private verandas (not to mention a Nicklaus golf course and excellent spa). Now through December 18, guests can save 25 percent off the best available rate on one- to three-night stays.
Details: Rates start from $439/night for an Oceanfront Superior Room and include a welcome tequila amenity, fresh fruit daily, and in-room espresso and tea service. This offer is valid for travel through December 21, 2012.
