Even if you’re allergic to reality TV, it’s tough to ignore the buzz: Over 8.6 million people tuned in on Sunday to this season’s conclusion of The Bachelorette, watching as Emily Maynard said yes to suitor Jef Holm (and a massive 3.5-carat diamond engagement ring by Neil Lane) on the idyllic Dutch isle of Curaçao. The world will have to wait to see whether their relationship stands the test of time, but you can start vacationing in Bachelorette style right away with Travelzoo’s latest promotion. This sweet deal includes many of the island restaurants and accommodations featured in the show, and is this week’s top pick for a weekend escape.
For vacations now through December 23, the Romantic Bachelorette Package for Two includes five nights in an oceanfront studio at the Sandton Kura Hulanda Lodge & Beach Club, a serene retreat tucked along the cliffs of Curaçao’s West End. The package also includes welcome roses, two dinners for two – one in the resort’s quiet zen garden and another along the beach – plus a moonlit dessert and champagne excursion on the beach, and a snorkel trip to famed Blue Cave. A natural reef fringes the beachfront property, providing excellent snorkeling and diving opportunities just offshore; and a collection of shops and restaurants onsite offer plenty of ways to escape the sun throughout your stay. Guests of the resort also enjoy free shuttle service to the resort’s sister property, the historic Sandton Kura Hulanda Hotel in downtown Willemstad, perfect for an extended day-trip.
The package for two is currently offered at $1,650 double occupancy, exclusive of airfare – a savings of nearly $550 if you were to book all package elements separately. And now during low season, you’ll also find low round-trip fares to Willemstad on a number of domestic and Caribbean airlines, including American Airlines, Continental, Delta, and smaller short-haul carriers such as Liat.
Book the Romantic Bachelorette package on Travelzoo.com through December 23, 2012.
