Everyone has a dream of escaping the seemingly neverending bustle of life. Slumming it on holiday is alright with us (the key point being not working), but you know what, flying out to a foreign country with a luxurious hotel room waiting for you – think rustic copper baths, amenities crafted by the finest artisans, and Michelin-quality dining – sounds way better.

To be fair, everyone has different preferences when it comes to hotels – maybe you’re a fan of quaint properties in small, local neighbourhood, or perhaps you’d rather stay at a popular, brand-name resort by the seaside. Well, we’re just as picky too, so enter Secret Escapes, the online hotel and holiday booking provider for boutique hotels and luxury resorts that offer you guaranteed best deals on the web.

Whichever kind of vacation you’re looking for, they’ve got you covered. The best part? Membership doesn’t cost a single cent, and it never will. Here’s what to expect!

A Curated Collection of Properties

Finolhu Resort, Baa Atoll, Maldives

The folks at Secret Escapes have worked their behinds off to find the most luxurious hotels out there and negotiate a price that’s pretty unbeatable – up to 70% off the price you’d pay when you book anywhere else. Here, you’ll find hotels and holidays that are a cut above the rest – only four and five-star properties need apply. Selected by a team of travel experts, you’re just as likely to see a boutique country house as you will a stunning designer resort for a tropical beach escape.

Flash Sales Galore

At any one time, there are as many as 80 flash sales happening – each lasting around 10 days – allowing you to book your destination days, weeks, or months in advance. Be quick about it; the availability of their lowest advertised rates are often limited. But there’s no need to worry that you’ll miss them; Secret Escapes email members in advance to notify them of new arrivals so just keep your eyes peeled when checking your inbox.

Best Deals and Extra Perks on the web

Not only does Secret Escapes look out for your wallet by working with hotels that provide exclusive rates that aren’t available elsewhere, they’re also constantly negotiating for those additional perks that make you feel extra special, such as welcome gifts, a complimentary bottle of bubbly, room upgrades, spa treatments, massages and the like.

Rest assured that you needn’t shop around once you’ve found your perfect getaway; it’s testament to the confidence of Secret Escapes that they’re letting members hold a room with a $50 deposit in the event they’re not confident about making the commitment straightaway. You’ll get your money back upon making your booking, or have it credited to your Secret Escapes account even if you back out.

Earn Credit by Telling your Friends

Sharing is caring – the adage never rang more true today, with consumers being bombarded with so many options and choices. Receive $10 credit when five of the friends you invite (with your very own referral link) join Secret Escapes; $40 credit when 25 friends join, and $80 more when 50 of your friends join. You’ll also get $40 for each purchase that your friends make. If that’s not enough of an incentive, we don’t know what is.
