Have you seen the Four Seasons romantic getaway specials offered in their Ignite the Spark promotion? Alan and I can attest to the romance that you’ll find at Four Seasons hotels. Last year, during our stay at the Four Seasons Sydney, we expected luxury and personal service but the view from our junior suite was the icing on the cake. It felt more like a romantic getaway than a prelude to our Seabourn cruise across the South Pacific to Los Angeles.
Would you like to add a little romance to your next boomer trip? You’ll want to start at the Four Seasons page on Facebook. Click on the Ignite the Spark tab to create a countdown to your next romantic getaway. There’s even a quiz to help you determine where to go. But, the best part is the Four Seasons romantic getaway specials promotion offering free nights (at the bottom of the page when you click the link). Here are four of my favorites:
Combine your love of food with a Four Seasons romantic getaway in Maruitius
Twosomes spend the afternoon learning to cook a signature Mauritian dish during a private lesson from a Resort chef. After preparing the meal together, they can enjoy it in either the pastry show kitchen, a Grand Villa or the Presidential Suite.
Experience wine and romance at the Santa Barbara Four Seasons
Enjoy an exclusive once-in-a-lifetime Private Reserve wine tour at Sunstone Winery’s organic vineyards. Following a tour and demonstrations, a farm-to-table style gourmet lunch and wine pairing by local chefs is served in Sunstone’s unique barrel-aging cave. From there, couples will bottle and cork their “Private Reserve” blend, complete with a hand-dipped wax top. (On a tour of the Santa Barbara property in August, I was enchanted by the sprawling grounds and the understated but definitely luxurious accommodations.)
Proclaim your love in Budapest
The romantic Danube is one of historic Budapest’s most famous features. The continent’s second-longest river has inspired composers, artists, writers and filmmakers for centuries. As a pair, Four Seasons guests partake in the small but lovely ritual of releasing a rice paper lamp with their heart’s deepest wish attached, whether it’s from the balcony of their room at the palatial Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace or from a boat on the Danube itself.
Relax on a private beach in Costa Rica
Two people, one secluded beach and countless hours of time alone for snorkeling, surfing and fishing—does it get any better? When couples are whisked away on this Private Cruise Experience, they won’t exactly be roughing it—a gourmet barbecue basket is provided.
