The New Year is synonymous with change, but here at Fora, we think the New Year is an invitation for excitement and adventure.

Our New Year’s resolutions involve taking advantage of exclusive deals at hotels and resorts — all of which take the bite out of winter. Consider this your VIP invitation to kick off 2023 with a bang. From snowy alpine escapes to a swanky urban retreat, these are the places we’re booking asap. 

Connect with a Fora Advisor to customize & book your trip today.  

The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch: 15% off with 4+ nights 

Rocky Mountain National Park

Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado

This five-star mountainside getaway in Beaver Creek, Colorado is especially well-suited for families. During the winter, ski-in / ski-out concierge services and the hotel’s prime alpine location make snowy outdoor adventuring seamless. A serene spa offers nature-inspired treatments made with locally-sourced materials, and a range of dining options — from après-ski barbecue to seasonal Colorado cooking — champion a similar locavore approach.

Fora Perks:

  • $100 hotel / resort credit.

  • $70 daily breakfast credit.

  • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

Fine Print: Available for travel now through April 10th 2023.

Viceroy Snowmass: 5th night free 

Viceroy Snowmass

Snowmass, Colorado

This luxe ski-in / ski-out resort at Aspen Snowmass, one of the country’s top ski destinations, boasts a slew of awards and accolades, and for good reason. Guests can enjoy epic skiing across more than 3,000 acres of terrain (and at an elevation of 14,000 feet, no less) before relaxing in the Viceroy’s heated pool. And don’t miss the hotel’s Latin-inspired restaurant, which meticulously sources local ingredients to curate a fantastic dining experience — the perfect reward after an exhausting yet exhilarating day on the slopes. 

Fora Perks:

  • $100 hotel / resort credit.

  • Breakfast daily.

  • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

Stein Eriksen Lodge Deer Valley: $400 resort credit with 3 or 5+ nights, depending on dates 

Stein Erikson

Deer Valley, Utah

Elevate your trip to Utah with a luxury stay at one of the world’s best ski hotels. Stein Eriksen Lodge evokes the cozy style of traditional European ski lodges, and adds its signature five-star touch. After hitting the slopes or shopping around downtown Park City, lounge in a leather chair near the fire, nursing a gourmet hot chocolate, or relax at the hotel’s spa. Later, indulge in a one-of-a-kind meal inside a Stein Aplenglobe, a life-sized (and heated) snow globe of sorts, with views of the surrounding Deer Valley. 

Fora Perks:

  • $100 hotel / resort credit.

  • Breakfast daily.

  • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

Fine Print: Available for travel now through April 13th 2023.

Thurnhers Alpenhof: 4th night free 

Thurners alpenhof

Lech, Austria

Staying at this 38-room boutique hotel is akin to stepping into a real-life winter wonderland. It’s nestled on a ski slope in the idyllic Zürs am Arlberg, in Austria — one of Europe’s top skiing destinations for families and pros alike. But the hyper-personalized attention and supreme hospitality make this exclusive resort truly special. Of course, the glorious spa — complete with a Finnish sauna, steam bath and indoor pool — and gorgeous cuisine help, too. 

Fora Perks:

  • Complimentary 50-minute massage for two.

  • Breakfast daily.

  • Upgrade & extended check-in/out

Fine Print: Available for travel from January 8th 2023 & February 10th 2023, and between March 5th 2023 & March 31st 2023.

The Beekman, a Thompson Hotel: 3rd night free

This handsome historical landmark is an elegant, sophisticated oasis amid New York’s polished Financial District. Vintage pieces (and a personal cocktail bar) add character and class to each sleek room. The hotel’s signature bar, housed beneath a splendid atrium, beckons guests to sip on an expertly crafted drink. And few places can boast such a star-studded culinary program: chefs Tom Colicchio and Daniel Boulud are behind the hotel’s gastronomic options, from five-course dinners to a casual (but no less delicious) Lyonnais meal. The Beekman is Downtown’s it spot for vacationing in style.

Fora Perks:

  • $100 food / beverage credit.

  • Breakfast daily.

  • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

Fine Print: Available for travel from January 3rd 2023 through March 31st 2023.

Chablé Yucatán: $350 resort credit with 3+ nights

This dreamy wellness escape in the heart of the Yucatán jungle feels like a home away from home. And in fact, it's housed on an old hacienda, at the center of which lies a verdant, vine-flanked cenote (the perfect site for a relaxing yoga class accompanied by birdsong). The resort is at once chic and modern — think floor-to-ceiling glass windows, colorful tile and handsome iron beams — while preserving the timeless beauty of many of the hacienda's original structures. The food, most of which is sourced locally or from Chablé's on-site organic garden, celebrates Mexico's bounty and culinary traditions, bursting with flavor and nourishment. And the spa is reason alone to visit: private massage cabins dot the cenote's lush rim. If you're lucky, while enjoying a sumptuous massage or Naturopathica facial, the afternoon rains will roll in, providing the perfect soundscape for a transportive experience.
