The deal
Rarely does a deal this good come across our desks. Antigua's posh St. James's Club & Villas has reduced its rates to $59 a night to coincide with American Airlines' brand-new non-stop service from Miami (which debuted on Saturday). This luxurious Caribbean beach resort normally charges $315 a night, so you'll save 81 percent with this sale. This low price is good for travel through October 26, making for an unbeatableĀ  pre-winter beach vacation. Book it before it expires on September 20.

What to Expect at the S. James's Club and Villas
The St. James Club & Villas is one of Antigua's finest resorts, with amenities that cater to romantics and families alike. It sits on a secluded 100-acre beach-trimmed peninsula, with two superb white-sand beaches, Coco Beach and Marmora Bay, at its doorstep, and superb views from its stunning hillside setting.

The resort's 147 rooms and 41 hillside villas are all decorated in tropical style and feature private en-suite balconies with bay or hillside views. The lush grounds also boast four swimming pools, a spa and salon, six tennis courts, and a fitness center, plus an a complimentary, award-winning Kidz Club (an ideal perk if you're bringing the kids along). Four on-site restaurants round out the offerings, with cuisine ranging from casual to Continental.

The dollars
The low price of $59 a night is offered exclusively through Elite Island Vacations and requires a three-night stay at the posh St. James Clubs and Villas. Good for travel through October 26, the price reflects savings of 81 percent off regular rates of $315. If you'd prefer to visit between October 26 and December 20, the rate increases to just $59 per person per night, which is still great value for a resort of this caliber. All-inclusive plans are also available for just $100 per person per night.

The catch
This offer requires travel on one of American Airlines' new direct flights to Antigua via Miami.

Elite Island Resorts will serve up relevant flights for your preferred dates and departure city. If you've already booked your flights on American, simply provide your flight information when you book the deal.
