We handle all the minutiae so you can be free to kick back & relax.

 

Ever since our inception in December 2012, we at Resort Stay have made it our daily mission to offer amazing value for your vacation, business trip or spontaneous getaway. We’re cutting your costs, not quality. The prime locations we can offer provide all the comforts of home with all the amenities of indulgence.
People can get themselves so worked up during the vacation process that they forget to enjoy themselves. Taking a vacation should be a carefree venture. This is your time to get away from everyday inconveniences and we’d like to help you make it as streamlined as we can. It’s no stretch to say that we’re experts in making sure we get the best discounted rates, but we don’t stop with just saving you money. Any questions you may have will be treated in a personal manner because we want you to enjoy every moment from check-in to check-out.

That’s why we started this business.

Our team is here to assist you with any needs you may encounter, so you should always feel free to reach out to us with any questions or concerns. Here’s a bit more about us so you can put a face to a name:
