Ready to Get Away? Our Top Picks for a Sun-Soaked Winter Vacation.
When the sun and the heat is calling your name, nothing else will do. Here are a few picks for travel bugs that hit in the dead of the winter.Phoenix/Scottsdale-the Phoenix and Scottsdale area is a haven for spas, museums and nightlife with a scene that parallels Las Vegas. Check out the recently opened Talking Stick resort, located in Scottsdale, featuring golf, a spa, and of course the pool you’re searching for… private cabanas, poolside grill… and views of the Sonoran Desert. The spa resides on the 14th floor of the hotel, overlooking the city and offers treatments that will help warm your body and shed your winter skin. (talkingstickresort.com)
Honolulu-If you typically skip over Honolulu in favor of its ritzier sisters—Kauai and Maui—you’re in for a treat. Book your stay at the Halekulani Hotel located in Waikiki. With a world-renowned spa (designed by Sylvia Sepielli) this hotel begs you to not leave. (halekulani.com)
San Diego-If escaping means an escape for four not two, San Diego is your ticket. A mecca for families, San Diego offers a little bit of everything for everyone. We love Paradise Point Resort & Spa. This island resort is just minutes from downtown and offers beautiful views of the city, a tropical-inspired spa, and of course a plethora of island-infused activities- beach cruisers, a putting green, and nightly bonfires complete with S’mores.
