Rack rates at this Asian-inspired beachfront resort start at $1,150 a night for a studio suite with a city view. But if you book at least 30 days in advance you get 15% off the best available rate, thanks to the hotel’s fall/winter Early Booking promotion. Book 60 days in advance and you’ll get 20% off the best available rate.
There is a catch, of course: full deposit is required at the time of booking; no cancellations or refunds are allowed; and blackout dates apply. To reserve a room with the Early Booking rate, you need to call the hotel on 305.520.6110 or email email@example.com at least 30 days prior to your arrival date.
Tempted by the idea of lazing by the Setai’s pool come December, we tried the online booking system today, using a December 11 arrival date. A “Winter Escape” rate of $750 a night for the studio suite with city view was available. Securing the Early Booking discount on this room would bring the rate down to $600 a night. Which isn’t cheap—but is a hell of a lot more palatable than $1,150. And we can put the savings towards a few extra mojitos.Photo from the HotelChatter Flickr pool.
