About us

Welcome to the worst-kept secret in luxury travel.

At Guardian Escapes, we negotiate exclusive rates for luxury hand-picked hotels and holidays in the UK and abroad. How have we done it? Well, even the most luxurious hotels out there don't like having empty rooms...

For access to our members-only rates, all you have to do is sign up to Guardian Escapes with your email address and nothing else. It doesn't cost a penny, and never will.

In return, we'll give you access to rates for hotels and holidays you'll struggle to find anywhere else.

Our ethos

We only ever feature hotels and holidays that we believe are a cut above the rest and good enough to recommend to our members.

All of the hotels and spas are hand-picked – and offers curated – by our travel experts, and we're as likely to find you a boutique country house hotel as we are to sniff out stunning design hotels, five-star spa breaks and tropical beach escapes.

We only work with hotels that give us exclusive rates – we look after our members and find them prices that you just won't get anywhere else. We're also always on the look-out for those additional perks that make staying at our hotels extra special: complimentary room upgrades, a bottle of bubbly, a massage – that sort of thing.

And so, we look forward to welcoming you when you sign up to the worst-kept secret in luxury travel!

How we work

At Guardian Escapes, we think booking a holiday should be an exciting, enjoyable and stress-free experience, so we decided to create a website where we hand-pick the best hotels and holidays and curate exclusive offers available only to our members.

Every week, we add a whole range of new hotels and holidays to inspire your next escape. So you don't miss out on new offers, we'll email you to let you know what's coming up during the week.

It's worth noting that, the availability of our lowest advertised rates may be limited. Our offers are often available to book days, weeks or months in advance.

By hand-picking hotels and holidays for members, Guardian Escapes acts as an agent for the suppliers, tour operators and hotels featured on the site.
