I spent all of yesterday afternoon with about 25 sales reps from various Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts all over the world. This is an annual event I attend as part of our Preferred Partner affiliation with the luxury hotel group.
Below are highlights of what I learned. And remember, that you’ll receive exclusive and complimentary benefits for all Four Seasons through booking with us.


– Reconnect with your family considering 50% of connecting rooms
– July/August. Confirmed upgrade at time of booking AND 3rd night free. Exclusive to our partnership.


– Stay 5 nights in a suite and get a minimum $1,000 credit. And at Hualalai it includes complimentary round-trip airport transfers and use of their airport departure lounge.
– New Kings Pond building category at Hualalai.|
– Maui: 50% off wine after 8PM in all restaurants until the end of June. May be extended. Ask me.


Two 3-Star Michelin restaurants — French & Chinese. It’s the only hotel in the world with 2 Michelin starred restaurants.


– Newly opened hotel on Hyde Park
– Pre-arrivals lounge on the rooftop with showers and a light breakfast. So if your flight arrives at 9AM you’ll be good without having to purchase an entire night prior.


Not too far from Heathrow LHR, a good place to get a day room and enjoy the spa in this country retreat.
Perfect for a long layover, for instance before your overnight to Africa.


Re-opened in December 2010
3rd night free plus double upgrade [limited time]
Up to 7 bedroom villas and 40 of the villas have an optional private chef!

– Book your holiday (festive) stay by 5/31 and lock in lower season rates. 5 night minimum from 12/19/12 – 1/3/13

– Daily boat to/from town. It’s complimentary during daylight hours.

-iPad 2 access to room service, valet parking, pillow menu and about everything else


– Golden Triangle: Stay 3 nights in a Tented Camp and get 2 other nights anywhere at a Four Seasons Thailand for free. From 5/1/12 – 9/30/12.
– The 15 tents have copper tubs. And enjoy the fully outdoor and open air jungle spa. No walls.
– Chiang Mai. Authentic Thai design & very unique. Not your typical Four Seasons.


– Chihuly museum of glass opening up May 2012. Take the monorail there from the Four Seasons. It’s an 8 minute walk.
– Summertime bar and grill at the hotel.
– Evian spritz. It’s like being at the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea.
