Cocktails by the pool and dancing over dinner

When you pick your dates and destination for a hotel, you’ll be presented with the secret hotels with space. For every secret hotel, you’ll be presented with their star rating, a short description including tip-offs as to the location and a section describing the services you can expect. We recommend that you read the description thoroughly, as often it will detail what the resort is known for, for instance audio/visual equipment for those travelling on business or a welcome cocktail perfect for couples. Usually the title of the secret hotel will furthermore reveal a crucial detail.

Secret hotels are beneficial to both the customer and the establishment. Hotels part of the secret hotels collection can make sure guest rooms get booked up without advertising their name publicly, whilst customers can save up to a staggering 35% off the standard room price. As demand grows for this revolutionary concept, additional resorts are joining the collection across the globe and more travel providers, like Hotwire, are providing their take on the opaque bookings notion.
