Traveling means staying in hotels for most of us, and that means looking for any perks possible to get from the hotel for your loyalty to them. This is the new way of looking at the matter according to the experiences of a great deal of people. They want to get a little more for their time at a hotel, and the hotels are starting to step up to the plate to offer it to them. Some of the very best perks out there are not just a nice bed that is comfortable and relieves your back pain, but much more than that.
Try Getting A Private Tour
Tourist attractions are great and tend to be centered around natural wonders and other amazing experiences. These are great, but some of the experience can be zapped up by other tourists. In other words, just being around other people can take away from the travel experience. Those other tourists can be incredibly annoying at times, and they can make seeing something less pleasurable.
Hotels sometimes offer private experiences for their guests. There are exclusive private tours of areas that you want to see. This may be more meaningful and create a better impression for you in the long run. It will certainly be something to tell your friends and family about when you return home, and you don't risk anything by asking a hotel if they can arrange this.
Private Nature Adventures
Plenty of people are drawn to a destination because of some of the wildlife that tend to populate the area. People will pay big money to swim with dolphins or interact with other parts of nature that they don't get to see in their day-to-day existence. However, the wildlife does not always cooperate with your schedule. It is easy to miss out on a life-changing experience simply because the animals are not ready to be around at the same time that you happen to be around. This is exactly why the Four Seasons Resort at Landaa Giraavaru has what they call the “manta on-call” line.
It sounds humorous, but the purpose of this exclusive phone line is to let guests know when the manta rays are nearby. This gives the guests the opportunity to come out and swim with those manta rays as they are in the area.
Many of the top hotels are investing in the bedroom. Expect luxurious curtains, the most high-tech mattresses, and comforters that feel like a dream. The top hotels should offer California King mattresses which can provide plenty of room for a restful sleep. Make sure you ask your hotel what type of mattresses are available and what sizes they have available and ditch a twin bed for something much larger.
Get Transported In Style
Transportation is usually a frustrating experience for nearly everyone. However, it is possible to have a VIP experience when it comes to this with certain hotels. Perks at some hotels include coming to pick up the traveler from the airport and transport them directly to their hotel destination. They aren't just transported, they are moved around in style. They are handed the keys to a 2019 BMW SUV for example. Sometimes they are even picked up directly at the airport in one of these luxury vehicles and offered champagne for their commute over.
It is fun to get carted around as if you are the king, and it is a great way for hotels to attract more guests. The perks offered continued to get more and more creative, and it is a shame if people don't take advantage of those hidden perks.
