We share how can guests get the best deal, offer or discount at Four Seasons Residence Club Aviara, North San Diego.
Why Choose Four Seasons Santa Barbara?
If you are looking for laid-back sophistication on the Southern California coast, look no further. Four Seasons Santa Barbara is tucked between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountains.
Set within 22 lush acres, woven with secluded courtyards, fountains, and sun-dappled, red-brick pathways lit by gas lanterns, the Spanish Colonial villas and bungalows invoke the same casual glamour that first delighted Hollywood’s power players in the 1930s.
Go for a stroll along Butterfly Beach, spend the day lounging poolside at Coral Casino Beach and Cabana Club, or pay a visit to the award-winning Spa before returning to the Ty Lounge for a cocktail as you recount the day’s adventures from a seat around the fire.
Using the following tips, we can help you get the best deal at Four Seasons Santa Barbara:
1. Free Benefits Are As Good As A Discount
Our rates match those on the Four Seasons website, including discounted and special offer rates, 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 over 1,000 other luxury hotels across the world.
2. Book A Special Offer At Four Seasons Santa Barbara
Usually, offers available on the Four Seasons website include their stay longer and third-night free deals which means that you receive a complimentary third night. Advance purchase deals enable you to take advantage of around a 20 percent discount on the room rate.
3. Book The Cheapest Four Seasons In California
If you’re looking for a resort-style hotel in California, Four Seasons Santa Barbara is a brilliant choice and comes complete with its own beach. There are, however, other Four Seasons resort hotels in California such as Four Seasons Los Angeles at Beverly Hills.
If you are flexible on your destination within California and its surrounds, you can pick the cheapest Four Seasons. You may find this Santa Barbara hotel to be your cheapest resort option, but you may not, so it’s worth checking the other Four Seasons in the area, and beyond. Four Seasons Napa is another great hotel worth considering when looking for a stunning setting and a great resort pool.
4. Book Early At Four Seasons
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. Usually, Sunday nights offer a good deal at some Four Seasons hotels and you should book these in advance for the best rates. The Four Seasons rates tend to come out around a year in advance, and usually, the rates only go up.
At Four Seasons Santa Barbara, try and book out of the main season, away from the holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Eve, 4th July, etc). The summer is also a hugely popular time at this hotel because of the weather. You might find cheaper rates in April and May, and September and October. Our team of advisors in our concierge can look into specific dates and help advise.
5. Join The Four Seasons Loyalty Scheme
This is 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 an alternate 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.
6. Change Your Holiday Dates
Where possible, re-arrange your dates and plan to specifically target the Four Seasons hotel you are planning to visit, when it is cheapest and offers the best discounts. Also when the hotel is full, the check-in team is less likely to find a room in the category above yours to upgrade you to.
7. Stay One Night & Enjoy The Hotel For Two Days
Even if you just book your stay at one of the Four Seasons in Santa Barbara for one night, you can enjoy the facilities and setting on the afternoon of arrival and the day of departure. You can paddle on Butterfly Beach or lounge poolside at Coral Casino Beach and Cabana Club even after checkout.
8. Stay Shorter
It sounds obvious when you say it out loud, but I would prefer three nights at an expensive Four Seasons rather than a week at a cheap budget resort.
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. These codes are not widely available to the general public, and the discount may not be as good as the free benefits offered by our luxury travel concierge. We suggest asking for a free quote from our luxury travel concierge 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.
