The legendary Surf Club was founded in 1930 by Harvey Firestone as a private membership club, but how can guests get the best deal or discount at this iconic Four Seasons resort?
Why Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club?
Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club has joined a growing portfolio of historic and architecturally important Four Seasons hotels, including the landmark Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris; the lavishly restored Palazzo and Giardino della Gherardesca at Four Seasons Hotel Firenze; and the majestic Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace St. Petersburg, housed in a meticulously restored 19th-century palace.
The Surf Club boasts 965 feet (300 meters) of Atlantic oceanfront on a 9-acre (3.6 hectares) site that incorporates the Hotel; two residential towers; a private membership club; two restaurants; four swimming pools; a state-of-the-art spa and fitness center; more than 40 beach cabanas; and an expansive park and oceanside gardens. The Richard Meier Signature Homes and Penthouses, ranging in size from 1400 to almost 8000 square feet (130-750 square meters), will offer residents extraordinary views stretching from the Atlantic to downtown Miami, with interiors and finishes personally selected by Meier. The design for the buildings utilizes his decisive and iconic visual vocabulary — glass walls, capacious volumes of space, a sensitivity to the movement of natural light throughout the day, and sumptuous yet elemental materials.
Using the following tips, we can help you get the best deal at Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club:
1. Get Free Benefits
You can make use of free loyalty style benefits from your first stay at Four Seasons hotels and resorts by booking with a luxury travel agent like our luxury travel concierge. Our rates match those on the Four Seasons website, but by booking with us, you get extra free benefits, including free breakfast, free room upgrade (subject to availability), a welcome gift, and a $100 resort credit. We offer similar free benefits at other luxury hotels in Miami and along Miami’s beaches too. Mandarin Oriental, The Edition, Faena, Loews Miami Beach Hotel, St Regis, Ritz Carlton are all part of our portfolio of luxury hotels where we can offer exclusive and free benefits.
If you want loyalty style VIP benefits without paying more, it’s worth contacting us for a free, no-obligation quote to see what you are missing. There is no cost associated with becoming a client of our luxury travel concierge.
2. Check The Four Seasons Website For Special Offers
Check out the unique special offers pages to get the best discounts which you can combine with the free benefits offered by our luxury travel concierge. I have linked to special offers page Four Seasons Hotel at The Surf Club.
Current special offers include their stay longer, a fourth-night free deal which means that you receive a complimentary fourth night. They also have a Florida residents rate, for locals to book a staycation and an advance purchase deal where you save 20 percent on the room rate.
3. Book Early
Four Seasons hotels and resorts are so popular that they often sell out, so they don’t need to discount their rooms during the high season. Here, the high season is over the winter months January to March when it is cold higher up in North America but balmy in Florida. Hurricane season is at the end of the summer and early in the autumn so hotel rates can be cheap at this time but you risk stormy weather. If you want to book a stay during the winter season, we recommend booking in advance.
As you get closer to the high season, the prices will undoubtedly rise. Rooms will start to sell out, often starting from the bottom room up. So you could conceivably be left paying a premium for a mid-range room with a view that you aren’t that bothered about.
4. Join The Four Seasons Loyalty Scheme
OK, that’s a trick title! Four Seasons doesn’t reward guests with loyalty points. Most Four Seasons hotel room rates start at $500 – $1000 USD per night, and because there isn’t a Four Seasons loyalty program, you will never be able to book a free stay by racking up and redeeming points, or by collecting points on your credit card and spending them on a Four Seasons hotel stay. It can’t be done.
If you are a premium member of a hotel’s loyalty scheme, you get premium benefits, particularly if you are a regular guest. The only way of getting this kind of special treatment and loyalty benefit at a Four Seasons hotel is by booking with a luxury travel agent like our luxury travel concierge.
5. Change Your Holiday Dates
If you can, re-arrange your dates and plan to specifically target certain Four Seasons hotels when they are cheapest and offer the best discounts. If you can travel at other times, try to avoid Christmas and New Year’s Eve. You will pay so much more during the holidays, and you can rarely take advantage of special offers or deals on these dates.
6. Look Out For New Properties
Brilliant new Four Seasons hotels are opening all the time. The nearby Four Seasons Fort Lauderdale is due to open soon, so grab the opening offers when they go on sale, and you can snag an incredible room in paradise for less.
7. Stay Shorter
It sounds obvious when you say out loud, but I would prefer three nights at an expensive Four Seasons rather than a week at a cheap budget resort.
8. Pick The Cheapest Properties
It doesn’t matter how luxurious the Four Seasons brand is. Some parts of the world are cheaper than others. The Four Seasons Casablanca or Marrakech in Morocco will always be cheaper than the Four Seasons Geneva in Switzerland, whatever time of year you decide to visit. The cost of land and staff is not comparable between these two countries, so you can get a stay of the same caliber of Four Seasons hotel cheaper by choosing a Four Seasons hotel in a less expensive country. We have outlined the cheapest Four Seasons hotels in the world to help you choose where to stay. This is not a discount; this is simply using common sense to book your vacation in a cheaper area of the world.
9. Use Corporate Promo Codes
There are special corporate promo discount codes, so if you are an employee of a company like Goldman Sachs, Bank Of America, IBM, or the government, you might be able to take advantage of these discounts. Still, these codes are not widely available to the general public. In addition, the discount may not be as good as the free benefits offered by our luxury travel concierge. We suggest asking for a free quote so you can compare prices and benefits and get the complete picture before booking.
10. Don’t Book With Your Credit Card Travel Agency
Do you want to be at the front of the queue for your free room upgrade? Book your Four Seasons stay via our luxury travel concierge, and we will put you first in line for your free upgrade. You will be placed in front of guests who book via booking services like American Express Finest Hotels & Resorts.
This is because our travel agency is an official partner of Four Seasons hotels, so room upgrades for clients that we book into Four Seasons hotels are put at the front of the queue! You can still use any credit card as payment when you book with our concierge, so you still get your usual loyalty points and rewards from your credit card when you book with us.
