Travel deals and steals

TRV_JadeMountain_0528

Jade Mountain is home to a number of infinity pools, like this one, which overlooks the Pitons.

The West Coast town of Soufrière in St. Lucia is home to the Pitons, two volcanic plugs deemed a UNESCO World Heritage site, and the Sulphur Springs, where you can take a cleansing bath in actual volcanic mud. It’s also home to Jade Mountain, which “Bachelor” fans may know as the lush spot where Jake proposed to Vienna a few seasons back (before their love affair went over the rails). Book Jade’s Summer Sanctuary package and on a seven night stay in the Sky Jacuzzi suites or Star and Moon infinity pool sanctuaries, receive the fourth and seventh nights free. You can add breakfast, dinner or an all-inclusive food and drinks package if you’re so inclined. Rooms start at $995 per night; book at www.jademountainstlucia.com.

Megabus has just rolled out its Summer Seat Sale, which means a number of $5 and $9 seats have been added on for travel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays for the month of June in 28 cities across the country. Book at http://us.megabus.com/sale.aspx at least seven days out.

We told you last week that the Jersey Shore isn’t gonna let a little rain ruin this year’s summer fun. If you’re thinking about heading down this year, Long Branch’s Ocean Place Resort & Spa is offering a 4-nights-for-the-price-of-3 deal through Sept. 30. The deal comes with four night’s accommodations for two in a room with ocean views, daily breakfast for two and beach access with towel, umbrella and chair service. Rooms start at $209.25 per night and can be booked at www.oceanplace.com.

One hour north of Cabo San Lucas in Mexico is Rancho Pescadero (www.ranchopescadero.com), whose Endless Summer Package promises a fifth night free on a four-night stay June 1-Sept. 30. You’ll get to take advantage of daily complimentary yoga; coffee, pastries and fruit delivered each morning; weekend dinners in the garden, prime surfing conditions and more. Rooms start at $185 per night.

Paris’ right-bank Hotel Edouard 7 and left-bank Hotel Bel Ami are both offering five-night stays for the price of four this summer. Check out the four- and five-star properties, respectively, at www.hoteledouard7-paris.com and www.hotel-bel-ami.co.
