A Free Summer Night in the Alps

Capitalizing on hotel promotions and summer deals is a great way to escape with your partner or spend a bit less on a family vacation. While everyone is hitting the beach and seeking sand and surf, you can take in incredible views of a beloved destination: the Swiss Alps. Empty nesters can fly north for the summer and enjoy a world-class stay at a discounted rate. Take advantage of  the new offer from The Virgin Limited Edition property The Lodge with one night free.

Experience the ultimate mountain retreat to Verbier, Switzerland, and use that extra-night cash for experiences and excursions, or hop on a train to another town after your Alpine visit. This luxury stay comes with all the bells and whistles avid travelers have come to expect from brand boss Sir Richard Branson.

This summer, June to September, guests of The Lodge get one night free when they book a minimum four-night stay. The add-on allows travelers, specifically hard-working adults, to better experience the luxury lodge’s many amenities. Spend the day out and about, hiking, climbing and exploring the stunning landscape, or unwind in the outdoor jacuzzi and take in the incredible Alpine views from the comfort of you chalet.

All meals and drinks are included in your stay, prepared by Michelin-trained chefs and culinary experts in both Swiss and international cuisine.

While The Lodge itself is stunning with more than enough luxury touches to entertain, you’re going to want to get outside and explore. Step into the picturesque surroundings with a variety of active excursions, including canyoning, paragliding and mountain biking, or keep it low-key and leisurely with varied walking trails and hikes.

Unwind back at The Lodge with a lineup of world-class spa treatments. Pay a visit, or two, to the steam room, practice your backstroke in the indoor pool, or just sit back and relax in the Jacuzzi with an unbeatable vantage point of the mountain vistas.

Wake up to the crisp mountain air during a morning yoga session before a day of shopping in downtown Verbier — just a five-minute walk from your room.

There’s something so relaxing about getting away during the summer with a clear itinerary, but with a slew of active fun, local attractions and fine dining to potentially fill it up.

Prices range by exchange rate, but typically begin at $930 a night, per room based on double occupancy.
