ResortPass: The Ultimate “Daycation”
Travel entrepreneur Amanda Szabo launched ResortPass in May of 2016 while living in San Diego near several upscale resorts and hotels. One afternoon she found herself pining for the ability to just enjoy the pool, have a drink, and relax at the spa. After caving and uncomfortably sneaking into a hotel pool once, Szabo felt guilty but she also noticed that the hotel pools were empty on weekdays. She quickly realized that the unused inventory was an untapped opportunity, which ultimately sparked the idea for ResortPass, the one-of-a-kind online booking platform that offers the opportunity to access amenities at resorts and hotels without committing to an overnight stay.
Based in Santa Monica, ResortPass is revolutionizing the idea of a daycation and takes the ultimate pool day to the next level. Perfect for a family-friendly day by the pool, bridal shower at the spa, or a personal day to indulge in some much-needed R&R, ResortPass has something to offer for everyone. The innovative platform offers access to pools, spas, fitness centers, and more while being mindful of budget. It also benefits hotels and resorts by providing them with an additional revenue stream.
ResortPass has been met with a lot of enthusiasm from travel experts and daycationers alike. Amanda believes it’s the simple nature of it all, “This is a platform that people wanted. Sneaking into hotels and resorts is not a great solution to enjoying a little bit of luxury!” ResortPass offers a simple and affordable way to make memories and escape for the day. “We launched ResortPass to offer people the opportunity to easily enjoy the resort experience,” said Amanda.
Since inception, ResortPass has grown to include over 80 hotels and resorts in key US cities and several states, including Arizona, California, Florida, Texas, Hawaii, Tennessee, Maryland and New Mexico – with plans to add more cities throughout the year. Some of the best resorts ResortPass offers are right here in San Diego, including the Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa, Harrah’s Resort, and The Park Hyatt Aviara. Day pass prices start at $25 for access to pools, hot tubs, fitness centers and more. Top tier day passes range up to $150 or more for private cabanas, which often include food and drink services too. Each carefully curated hotel or resort has unique packages for locals or visitors to enjoy a sunny San Diego daycation.
To date, over 80,000 people have enjoyed daycation passes through the platform. Amanda and her team are eager to continue expanding ResortPass throughout the country and internationally so that people can take full advantage of the amenities in their community.
