The ultimate pre-wedding party: Off & Away offers $22,500 bachelor / bachelorette auction
Luxury hotel deal purveyor Off & Away is offering their highest-priced acution to date with the ME Cancun suite apartment that housed The Real World: Cancun's housemates during the 22nd season.
The three-night package includes accommodations in the Real World suite for up to ten people.
Suite amenities include:
- Round-trip airport transfers
- Champagne on arrival
- Personalized en-suite check-in
- Tropical fruit upon arrival
- Buffet breakfast is included for all registered Suite ME guests
- Complimentary non-alcoholic beverages throughout the stay
- Twenty-four hour room service
- One complimentary international newspaper each day
- Personal staff of Aura-Experience manager, housekeeper and chef* (chef available upon request for additional cost)
Valued at $22,500, the auction package is part of their romance themed "Whole Lotta Love" series, combining romantic wedding, engagement, honeymoon and bachelor/bachelorette packages. The auction series will begin on February 11 and run through February 14.
Off & Away operates on a different model than most flash-sale sites. Members buy bids ($1 each) and increase the price of a given room, suite or experience in small increments, 10 to 15 cents at a time. Each bid also adds a few seconds to the countdown clock. The top bidder when the clock reaches zero wins the prize, and unused bids can be applied as a credit towards Off & Away's preferred network of partner hotels. We're big fans of this model, which, while time consuming, can allow users to win luxury hotel experiences at upwards of 90% off, a significantly larger discount than many other flash sale sites.
