Festival season is flyiiiiing by this year.

  1. UMF in Miami was back in April.
  2. The star-studded Coachella has come and gone
  3. And the electric sky under the Las Vegas Motor Speedway just finished last weekend

 

With Tomorrowland – the finale of music festivals coming up – we figure it be fun to look back at our Belgium trip in giving you guys a brief overview in what it was like to book a hotel package from this festival.

Logistically, Tomorrowland was a difficult trip to plan. With our group being 10+ people traveling from the states, buying a hotel package from Tomorrowland was highly paramount in making the journey as seamless as possible.

 

More importantly, the hotel transformed its whole stay into a festive Tomorrowland theme for all guests.

During check-in, some hotel staffs dressed up in Tomorrowland theme clothes, which made the experience quirky and fun.

Even the welcome drink had the festival’s branding on it.

The welcome package included:

  1. Invite to an exclusive “pre-party” event for hotel package guests
  2. Tomorrowland’s playing cards
  3. Travel diary
  4. Daily Tomorrowland’s news and lineup in a newspaper format
  5. Limited edition Tomorrowland hotel room key

On the first night, all hotel package guests were invited to a pre-party venue to get acquainted with the people and the city.

And was amazed that even the T.V. broadcasted live music and streams in our room.

Similar to AMEX Platinum’s Coachella, there was a makeup service available to get you ready for the festival.

Where’s Paul… he doesn’t want extensions and eyeliners too?

Overall, we had a fantastic experience with our hotel package with Tomorrowland. Though it was priced at a premium at about 50%, it felt like a nice extension to our festival experience that made the logistics of planning this trip a lot easier and stress-free.

 

For international travelers, hotel packages are the way to go. Just don’t book their overpriced eco flight packages…. use miles for First Class instead 😉
