New Maldives Private Island Vacation, seven nights for two, save 50% — $1,999
When to travel: Through December 23, 2022
Fully refundable: Yes
The Maldives never looked so good as from this private island. You’ll post up at the Fushifaru Maldives, a breathtaking private resort entirely free of distraction from the outside world. Snorkel with schools of technicolor parrotfish, one of the most beautiful species in the Indian Ocean. From your 1,000-square-foot sunset beach villa, step out to the private soaking tub located in a lush garden or proceed straight to the beach — you’ll have direct access from your veranda.
Daily breakfast is included at the onsite Korakali Restaurant (with the option to add daily dinner to the package), and once during your stay, enjoy a complimentary lunch on the overwater floating Handhu platform. The resort’s Raakani Grill, known for its fresh seafood, was voted the best Luxury Beachside Restaurant in the Indian Ocean at the 2020 World Luxury Restaurant Awards.
Also included in this incredible rate is everything you need to get out on the water, including stand-up paddleboards, snorkeling equipment, and all non-motorized water sports. The resort also hosts a free weekly yoga class. This deal will sell out, so grab it now and secure your spot.
Why this deal is unique:
- 20 percent discount on spa treatments and onsite dining, including drinks
- Avoid $439 in local fees and taxes by booking this Travelzoo deal
- Upgrade to an overwater Jacuzzi Villa, $2799 for two

Sophisticated & Sleek New Orleans Hotel near French Quarter — $75
When to travel: Through December 29, 2021
Full refundable: Yes
Le Meridien, an upscale hotel in downtown New Orleans, encapsulates everything you want out of a stay in the Big Easy. It’s luxurious, with a rooftop pool, fine dining, and classic cocktails onsite. It’s also within walking distance to the French Quarter, so you can pop into the action on Bourbon Street and experience Creole cooking at its finest and most authentic. Also within a 15-minute walk is the Museum District and the Mississippi River. Though with the famed Gulf Coast cuisine of LMNO’s and Marché serving everything you need onsite, we wouldn’t blame you if you just wanted to spend time in the room. For $75 — a 57 percent savings — you can’t go wrong with this Travelzoo deal.
