Economical explorer Alice Shapin highlights this week’s traveling deals. This week: Close to the Atlantic City action at Seaview Resort in Galloway, New Jersey
This golf-and-spa resort provides just the right amount of privacy — while still being close to all the fun Atlantic City has to offer:
Where: Seaview Resort, Galloway, N.J. 609-652-1800 or www.dolce-seaview-hotel.com
What’s special: On more than 670 wooded acres, Seaview, a Dolce Resort, is eight miles from Atlantic City and is southern New Jersey’s only golf-and-spa resort. Personally, I liked that you can venture into Atlantic City but you don’t have to stay there. The resort offers 36 championship holes and is home to the ShopRite LPGA Classic. The Donald Ross-designed Bay Course runs along Reeds Bay and has a Scottish feel. The Pines Course, a traditional layout, is set among Jersey pines. An Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa has a full menu of treatments. You can also enjoy indoor and outdoor pools and a state-of-the-art fitness center.
The deal: The Seaview Experience, an offer for Hudson Valley readers, includes two nights’ accommodation, the Friday-night seafood buffet for two, Sunday brunch for two, and one round of golf per person. While the package is worth $975, you can mention “Hudson Valley” to get rates starting at $588 for the two nghts.
When: Valid now through Sept. 15
