Top 4 Tips for the Perfect Tropical Getaway

Top 4 Tips for the Perfect Tropical Getaway

By Elegant Resorts and Villas - 05/09/2018

We are just headed into spring. So if you need a pre-summer escape then a tropical getaway is the perfect chance to take in some sun, drink a fruity cocktail, and relax under a palm tree.

But before you pack your bags for your next beach holiday, consider these tips we’ve cultivated to help you have the best holiday possible.

1) Book your airfare with points.

Travel hacking is a great way to start off any holiday. The good news is that while Australia might feel far away from the United States or Europe, it just a hop and a skip from some of the best beaches in the world. It’s possible to fly to exotic, but not too far-flung locales like the Maldives or Fiji for not too many reward points.

Elegant Resorts & Villas, along with our friends from Points Bank, can help you secure the best award seats so you can start off your tropical getaway, the right way.


2) Carve out some time to spend at one of the amazing luxury resorts.

No true tropical getaway is complete without a few days of complete relaxation, including total spa indulgence, artisanal drinks, and picturesque views to take in from the comfort of a day bed or hammock.

One of our top picks for this is the InterContinental Bora Bora Resort and Thalasso Spa. Not only does it have those overwater thatched huts that the South Pacific is famous for, but it also offers unbelievably white sand and blue water on a peaceful lagoon.

Dolphin Island

3) Make a few memories that will last a lifetime.

A tropical getaway can be more than just lazing in the sun on a beautiful beach. You can also do some things you can’t do anywhere else – like swimming with whale sharks at LUX* South Ari Atoll in the Maldives or enjoying a private island all to yourself at Dolphin Island in Fiji.

Bora Bora
