Now is the time to book your Easter getaway and take up to 35% off your stay at participating hotels and resorts in Australasia and Japan. Whether you’re getting together with old friends or spending quality time with your family, Easter is one of those truly special times of the year. And it’s even better with up to 35% off your room at your favourite IHG destinations.
If you're not quite sure where to explore, we've got a few suggestions that are sure to grab your attention. Find out about some of the funky, unique and just plain mesmerising IHG hotels ready for you to experience.
Looking Locally? Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley!
If a quick getaway to somewhere easy and accessible, yet peaceful and serine is what you're after, Crown Plaza Hunter Valley sure knows how to serve you ultimate relaxation on a silver platter. Located in the heart of the wine country in the Hunter Valley, it is about a 2 - 2.5 hour drive from Sydney and you'll be exposed to some pretty killer scenery along the way.
While you're there you can enjoy a dip in the heated outdoor pool, treat yourself to a glass of local wine, or set your alarm for an early wake up to experience the incredible rolling hills from a different perspective - flying high in a hot air balloon!
Staying Downunder? Holiday Inn Cairns Harbourside!
If you're in need of some vitamin D, and sun is all you require to brighten up your life - Holiday Inn Cairns Harbourside might be the perfect destination for you. Overlooking the sparkling Trinity Bay, and boasting breathtaking ocean and hinterland views, this Cairns hotel is the ideal spot to clear your mind and reset your body. Known as the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, this is the perfect location for families with plenty to see and do, and your pockets will appreciate Holiday Inn's Kids Stay & Eat Free guarantee, leaving more funds for exciting activities.
Once you're all snorkeled out (or let's face it, completely sunburned), how about a gondola ride over the World Heritage listed rain-forest? There is also some great up-close opportunities for wildlife lovers with a visit to some smiley crocodiles, cuddly koalas or for something a little more dainty there is the Kuranda Butterfly Sanctuary.
Change of Scenery? Queenstown, NZ!
There's nothing like the glowing autumn hues of gold and red hills, in contrast with the deep blue lakes of Queenstown, New Zealand.
With two IHG hotels to choose from and up to 35% off your stay, booking at either Holiday Inn Queenstown or Crowne Plaza Queenstown is a great first step in planning your trip to a truly magical escape. There is endless opportunities for adventure with adrenaline pumping activities like sky-diving, bungy-jumping, the world's biggest swing, zip-lining and more. Or alternatively, if you're not a thrill seeker you may enjoy a visit to the Onsen Hot Pools, a unique cellar door experience in some of the countries best wineries or a simple gondola ride to restaurant with breathtaking panoramic views of the city, mountains and Lake Wakatipu at the Skyline Queenstown attraction.
Also, did someone say "ski trip"? With winter creeping in, get rugged up and embrace the cooler weather - perhaps from the peak of a snowy mountain? The snow season usually begins around mid June, so keep an eye out for updates!
Eager to Explore? Vanuatu!
Say goodbye to all your troubles when you check in to the Holiday Inn Resort Vanuatu. If island life is your calling, you'll immediately feel at home here with incredible resort facilities including two stunning pool areas, kids club, day spa, nine-hole golf course, Verandah Restaurant, Lobby Bar and a Pool Bar featuring their infamous wood-fired pizza oven.
Cultural Change-up? Japan!
The up to 35% sale can even get you jetsetting off to Japan, and when you get there you will be utterly amazed at the beauty of this county. While the cultural aspect of a trip to Japan is an incredible eye-opening experience for a lot of people, it is also worth the visit purely to see some of the magnificent hotels here and the level of hospitality is second to none. We could sit here listing them all day, but be sure to check out Intercontinental Osaka, Intercontinental ANA Tokyo or Intercontinental Manza Beach Resort.
