Celebrating the holidays is definitely going to look different this year. If you and your friends had a socially-distanced backyard "Friendsgiving" on the calendar, Hotels.com might just be able to one up that.
The travel site is offering one group of six friends the chance to stay on a completely private island during the week before Thanksgiving (from November 14 to November 21). Named "Friendsgiving Island" (yes, really!), this vacation home bubble is located off the coast of Marathon, Florida.
The lucky group who secure this booking will stay in a gorgeous 5,000-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bathroom vacation home. Kayaks, paddleboards, a boat dock, and a helicopter launch pad will all be available to use.
Hotels.com has also arranged for a private chef to come in and cook the ultimate Friendsgiving feast for the travelers, "so you can eat, drink and be thankful without having to worry about who will cook the turkey" says the listing.
Sounds pretty sweet, right? Now I'm sure you’re wondering what the cost is. Hotels.com knows that you probably haven't seen your pals as much as you would have liked to this year. While a week-long stay on "Friendsgiving Island" would typically cost $9,800 a week (yes, my eyes widened too!), Hotels.com is doing us a solid. The entire week-long getaway will cost $2,000 flat per the press release "because it’s 2020 and you’re worth it."
While that may sound like a lot, if you split the cost between six friends, over seven nights, your grand total comes to about $286 per person for the whole week, or $47 a night.
Interested? This once-in-a-lifetime stay is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Booking will open on Hotels.com on Tuesday, October 27 at 10 a.m. ET. You can access the listing here at that time to try your luck at securing the reservation.
