Attractive Hotel Deals Comments Off on Attractive Hotel Deals

There seems to be a lot of attractive hotel deals coming to my email this time of the year. I’m looking forward to the four days of break next weekend though I haven’t got anything in plan.

Few weeks ago, I booked a new serviced apartment for a good price at one of the deals site and I’m just thinking if I should make use of it. While searching for some class rings, I came across some more good hotel deals and I think I may be buying too many for stocking up. Some of these hotel deals have validity up to one year so it’s good to keep them when you need it.

Cheap Hotel and Accommodation Rates During School Holidays Comments Off on Cheap Hotel and Accommodation Rates During School Holidays

I’m searching for cheap airfare and accommodation rates to Singapore and Asia since we plan to travel back end of the year.

There are not many promotions at the moment and therefore, it can be costly traveling on regular fares. There are budget airlines that offer better rates but they fly at odd timings and sometimes it can be rather inconvenient if you have little children. But for the savings at budget airlines, you can use your money to do more shopping and I actually use the savings to shop for one of the echo blowers for our house.

I suppose it’s hard to find cheap rates during school holidays since this is the time when everyone is traveling.

Just a short moment ago, my husband told me about some attractive hotel deals in Bangkok and Koh Samui. These are two places which are hard to find top class hotels at cheap accommodation rates so you can imagine how excited I was!

I checked out the hotel websites and I was so impressed! I love the crystal clear waters and the beautiful landscapes in the vicinity – it is nice! Whenever I stay in any hotel, I take note of the furnishings and little touches as those things say alot about the hotel. I told hubby the other day that I like some ceiling fans from lightingtheweb.com as they resemble the ones used in one of my favourite hotels. I couldn’t wait for the promo to be launched so that I can book them!

Let’s see if my close friend, Viki is keen on the cheap accommodation rates to Bangkok and Ko Samui as well. I certainly hope she says yes!

I have been receiving lots of school and easter breaks newsletters from travel sites in the last few weeks. Everyone is promoting cheap accommodation rates and it’s hard to make a decision on where to go.

Shopping and searching for information online has saved me lots of time as I work from home. Sometimes my friend from Singapore will ask me to search health products online for her. There are all kinds of things available from abdominal cuts products to acne skincare products. I use the internet to compare prices first so that I don’t end up paying for more than I should! It can be hard making decisions when you are spoilt for choices!

Well, I’ll be searching for some cheap accommodation rates for Sunshine coast or the Gold Coast. Let’s just hope that the water isn’t too cold for us!

No Cheap Accommodation Rates for Christmas 0

Posted on November 25, 2010 by dorisch

Christmas is just about one month away and many of my friends are already making plans to travel during this period. Well, all I know is you won’t get cheap accommodation rates during this holiday season. Instead you should be prepare to pay extra for room accommodation.

As I strolled down the streets of Orchard road, I saw the christmas trees and all the decorations. They are beautiful. I can see that the lights are up but where are the sales and special Christmas promotions I wonder? I will be spending my Christmas down under and it should be fun. I believe the stores will have lots of gifts and special buys during that period too.

So if you are thinking that cheap accommodation rates is possible during Christmas, you will be disappointed. If possible, travel to places where there are less people and you will not pay through your nose.

Beach resorts are one of the most ideal locations for boutique hotels. The idea of stepping out from your bedroom onto your own private beach area, or staying in an exclusive location just minutesí walk from the sea is an attractive one to many. No chic beach resort is like another, however, so itís worth taking a look at locations and hotels before you decide exactly what type of beach holiday is right for you.

There’s plenty of opportunity for boutique accommodation in the worldís island resorts. While checking out the ATV Parts online, I had the pleasure to check out some of the nice beach boutique resorts. From the Maldives in the Indian Ocean to the always-popular Caribbean islands, the lure of white beaches, blue seas and a laid-back atmosphere attracts visitors from all over the world. Beach boutiques on the islands make the most of the natural environment, using colour and texture to bring the outdoors inside and creating relaxing surroundings that enable you to enjoy your beach holiday to the full. Examples of island boutiques include:

• Ostraco Suites, Mykonos, Greece
• Quilalea Island, Mozambique
• Elysian Bali Villas, Seminyak, Bali
• Montpelier Plantation Inn, St. Kitts & Nevis
• The Lone Star Hotel and Restaurant, Barbados
• Fundu Lagoon, Zanzibar

Best Accommodation Deals for Hanoi 0

Posted on September 21, 2010 by dorisch

I was happy about the best accommodation deals secured for our recent hanoi trip. Months before our vacation, I contacted the hotel and they offered me an attractive package with one night stay in halong bay.

After spending three nights in busy hanoi and one night in Halong Bay, we are back and it brought nice memories when I saw the photos this morning. I took the pleasure of soaking in the jacuzzi during my stay in both places and relaxed with a face mask every night. I purchased the best acne treatment that works before the trip and used it alongside my beauty skincare. I was glad to pamper my skin even in the midst of my busy travels.

Now that I have seen Hanoi, i would like to visit the mountains someday. I heard that it’s nice and when the time comes, I’ll make sure to book early to secure the best accommodation deals again.

Best Accommodation Rates in Hong Kong 0

Posted on September 15, 2010 by dorisch

I believe in finding the best accommodation rates online but sometimes you need to know what you are getting when booking cheap or best deals.

I have been fortunate to get a good deal for our Hong Kong trip and was delighted to stay in a nice suite in Mira Hotel for a 3+1 deal. The entertainment centre in the room was great and my boy could watch his blu ray movies while I relaxed in the big tub. It was a relaxing trip despite having to look after three kids.

The next time when I travel to Hong Kong, I don’t mind staying at the Mira if I can get a similar good deal. Otherwise the rates may be too high in terms of value.

Searching for Best Accommodation Deals Online 0

Posted on August 24, 2010 by dorisch

One of the best ways to find best accommodation deals is to surf the web and make good use of the search engine. I began using online travel booking services few years ago and I enjoy this flexibility.

When you book a hotel or an accommodation online, you need to have an idea of what you want. So the best site to get started is Trip Advisor where you can read reviews and learn more about what travelers say about their experiences with the accommodation. From there, you can then do your own research and find the best accommodation deals to suit your budget.

Whether you are looking for homestay, bed and breakfast or perhaps. Outer Banks homes Trip Advisor presents information that assist travelers in making the best choices. Sometimes, you may need to go to the forum and ask questions if you are unsure of anything and this is one of the best places to get unbiased answers.

Best Accommodation Deals in Hong Kong 0

Posted on August 10, 2010 by dorisch

After searching for some time on cheap accommodation rates to Hong Kong, I have narrowed down to a few choices.

Actually Hong Kong accommodation aren’t cheap to begin with. Most of the hotel rooms are small and if they are cheap, you better be in for a surprise! In fact, some of the five star hotels charge a high price for a small room and this is especially if they are located near a mall or train line. But after much comparison, I have settled down for The Mira in Tsimshatsui for my family. I’m one of those who is concerned about home ventilation so I prefer to have a spacious room and living area. I was glad to get the best accommodation deals for the small suite due to a current promotional package.

So I’m set to visit Hong Kong again this summer end with my loved ones. I am so excited that I can have this wonderful opportunity.
