Groupon Getaways is a great place to find awesome travel deals.  You might only be familiar with using their Groupon deals for merchandise and services but their getaways are something you should know about and keep your eye on.  I do!

This particular deal caught my eye but there are so many great deals weekly.  You should subscribe to receive their weekly deals especially if you are looking to be inspired on where to getaway for your next adventure.  I’ve been dreaming about St. Lucia for years.  Haven’t been but I’m planning to soon.  Here is a great accommodation package is you are ready to jump on it today and travel before 4/13/2013.

The boutique hotel has been an AAA Four Diamond–rated establishment since 2007. Each bay-view room has a balcony or patio from which you can watch yachts, sailboats, and the hotel’s solar-powered ferry sail by. The ferry serves as a complimentary shuttle to various spots around the bay, including restaurants, bars, and Labas Beach, where you can spend the day snorkeling, windsurfing, and kayaking. Aside from its solar-powered ferry, the resort commits to responsible tourism by using locally made paper products and participating in community cleanup days. Such eco-friendly practices helped the hotel earn a nod from National Geographic.

Three pools dot the property: an infinity-edge pool, a lagoon pool with a swim-up bar, and a children’s pool shaded by an awning. There are also three onsite restaurants and bars, including the Boudreau Restaurant, an elegant French establishment named after the bay’s first hotelier. The resort credit that comes with three of this deal’s options can be used at the restaurants or the onsite spa.

Are you ready to go?  I am but I’m off to England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland soon.  Maybe I can get to the Caribbean next year or later in the year.  Anyway, if this deal interests you better jump on it because it last only 22 more hours on Groupon.


BTW:  Remember even if you book at package you can still pay with your points if you have flexible spending points like Chase Ultimate Rewards points or AMEX Membership Rewards points.  Just purchase with your rewards earning card, earn points and then reimburse yourself with your points for the purchase.  For example, if you booked this package you could simply redeem 50,000 Ultimate Rewards points as a cashback credit on your statement to cover your charge.  Not bad for a 4 night stay at a high class 5 star resort in St. Lucia.  That is why my top earning cards are my Chase Sapphire Preferred and my Chase Ink Bold or Ink Plus.
