It may sound peculiar to book a hotel without knowing the name of it, but that’s exactly what thousands of people around the globe are doing every year when they book a secret hotel. It’s not as high-risk as it seems however. For each secret hotel, you’ll be given a detailed passage about it’s facilities, such as whether it has a spa or laundry services, the star rating and pointers as to where it’s situated. Hotwire and Lastminute both utilise Google Maps, so you’ll be able to see a marked district of where the resort is situated. These travel providers also show you the Tripadvisor score (although you can’t see the reviews).
So why are secret hotels so sought after? Well, when you book a secret hotel, you’ll not only get the chance to holiday in a 4 or 5 star opulent hotel but you’ll also save money! How much you economise on is conditional on the travel agent, but with Lastminute you can save around 35% and with Hotwire up to an incredible 50%!
