January’s luxury vacation deal: Life’s a beach in South Beach
By Aimee Heckel
Ava Roxanne Stritt is dreaming of warmth today. Maybe you are, too — especially if your holiday travels were delayed or derailed due to the recent major snowstorms in the Midwest.
On New Year’s Day, Chicago was blasted with 11 inches of snow, grounding more than 600 flights in the busy Chicago O’Hare International Airport. Hundreds more were canceled on Thursday, as the snow continued to fall.
Stritt, who runs the popular luxury and spa travel website, SpaTravelGal.com, was lucky to miss the blizzard — but she says she’s still got her eyes on the beach. Every month, we talk to her about her favorite spa vacation deals and trends, and this month, she has enticed us with the Life’s A Beach Deal in South Beach.
“Miami is quick and easy to get to, and it feels warm,” Stritt says.
In fact, the Weather Channel reported Miami’s high hit 85 on Thursday, while Chicago, two and a half flight hours away, was hiding under frost.
Why fly to Miami this month? Warm temperatures to carry you away from the wintery blues. A way to reset after the holiday rush. And January is never a busy month for travel, so you can score some of the best deals of the year — and travel through some of the least busy airports.
What’s the best deal? Stritt loves the Life’s A Beach package at the Marriott Stanton South Beach. This is a luxury package for $309 per night, in one of the Marriott’s incredible rooms, fitness center access, and it includes two drinks by the pool or beach, two beach chairs, an umbrella, wifi and more. This boutique hotel on Ocean Drive is steps from the sand and ideally located in the middle of the best shopping, nightlife and restaurants.
