How to Enjoy the Perks of a Luxury Resort Without Staying There

Luxury resorts offer plush amenities, and these days they're not just for their overnight guests. Business Insider has the inside scoop on how to get awesome hotel perks without staying for the night. 

Hotels are offering a new kind of luxury staycation. These days, many luxury hotels offer special memberships to the public, giving them free reign of amenities like the pool, spa or gym without ever booking a room.

Too bad the memberships don't come cheap.

Memberships at 
Rosewood Sand Hill Resort in Menlo, Calif run patrons $1,000 per month, reports Andrea Peterson of the Wall Street Journal.


We found that the Trump Chicago has an "exclusive membership" option. While not a beach-side resort, members still get access to the health club and spa, which overlooks Lake Michigan. The members also receive complimentary workout clothes, headphones, and a locker.

The Hotel Casa del Mar has an ocean-side location in Santa Monica, Calif. They offer their members year-round privileges to the pool and fitness center, as well as preferred seating in the restaurant. 

They also give members a series of one-time benefits, like one overnight stay, breakfast in bed, a variety of spa sessions, and a personal trainer or yoga session.

If you want to take advantage of day passes to luxe resorts, ask ahead of time for information on special memberships.
