Research Six Senses resorts. They’re absolutely incredible. Not 100% sure if you’ll find one for under $500/nt, but that does depend on location and time of year. They are intimate resorts with villa style housing. Amazing.

Second six senses- love them.

I would check out turks and caicos. Lots of boutique style hotels. Good luck!

St Martin french side

Jakes, Treasure Beach, Jamaica. Used to be part of Island Outposts, which if still around has other truly unique hotels.

Look into air b&b lux edition homes- really high end villas, and depending on area you’re searching they usually comes with full staff (daily cleaning, cooks etc) w/ similar amenities as hotels.

In the Amalfi coast area in sorento, there are tons of beautiful little resorts

I’m assuming the card alone will not make you eligible for upgrades, does the united club card do this? The explorer card is pretty cheap annually, but is this even worth it?
