Spring Break | Luxury Vacations for Adults Only


We all know that the college students converge on certain resort beaches for a break from their studies, but adults have to take a break from their everyday routines for a spring break, too. It’s a much needed necessity for couples to get away from the everyday routines of work, adulthood, housework and chores. And guess what? Suntan.com wants to help you select the perfect place for your Spring Break.




Can you just picture those long romantic strolls along some island’s white sandy shores with your partner? Relaxing at a fabulous resort being pampered with all their amenities is just the thing a couple needs for a getaway. It might be in the Caribbean with their balmy dry weather, gorgeous expansive stretches of sandy beach with swaying palm trees and the waters of the color of aquamarine. Perhaps Mexico at the Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita which is 26 miles from Puerto Vallarta on 26 miles of white sand beaches and blue turquoise waters of the Pacific Ocean.



The Hacienda Encantada Resort and Spa in Los Cabos, Mexico is a wonderful hideaway. The property is surrounded with astonishing vistas. Hawaii is all about marvelous beaches and fabulous resorts to vacation at. The Wailea Resort Hotel & Spa in Maui, Hawaii has the only water elevator in the world that connects with nine pools that drop like steps down to sea level with a rope swing, waterfalls and slides. On the main island of Hawaii at Hilton Waikoloa Village, there are swimming pools with slides, rope bridges, and walk-through waterfalls; also a saltwater lagoon where people snorkel with the sea turtles and dolphins. It is good to keep in mind that resorts will generally offer packages like meals included with your room, rental equipment like snorkeling and sports equipment rental, free access to their fitness club and maybe even comp a massage, so be sure to ask. If you stay at a resort with a casino there are usually special offers like lucky bucks at the 21 table for instance in order to entice you to the casino floor.


For a quiet time away from the more crowded places you might want to check out Amelia Island. It has a quieter atmosphere for biking around the island or just walking the beautiful beaches. It will be a perfectly peaceful place to lie out on the beach and acquire a perfect suntan. The island has many great bed and breakfasts to stay at like the Amelia Oceanfront Bed & Breakfast that is a Victorian-themed inn nestled among the dunes on the shore; and the Elizabeth Pointe Lodge with magnificent views and looks like a mansion on Cape Cod. The Ritz-Carlton with all its Southern charms is a popular resort on the island and is a recipient of the AAA Five Diamond award. Perhaps you might want to check out Amelia Island Plantation which is the state’s AAA Four Diamond winner. This 1340 acre resort is nestled on the Atlanta Ocean beach with the Intracoastal Waterway on the west.




If you are looking for something closer to home there are some wonderful hotels and resorts stateside, too. Only 35 miles from New York City is Fairfield County with its rolling hills, historical homes and sandy beaches. The Condé Nast Traveler called The Delamar at Greenwich Harbor “one of the best new hotels in the world”. The hotel usually offers special getaway packages, like “Romance on the Harbor” or “Rejuvenation Package” has been offered in the past. The Delamar offers a library with complimentary refreshments, Elemis Spa & Relaxation Room, fully-equipped fitness suite, a pet program and room service daily.

The luxurious Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa in the wonderful Santa Rosa Mountains in Indian Wells, California offers so very much. At this resort there are two signature designed championship golf courses, two tennis courts, three heated pools, spa, two whirlpools, a sandy beach with volleyball, fitness center, hiking, bike rental and jogging paths nearby.

The Inn at Lost Creek in Telluride, Colorado offers rooftop whirlpools, spas, horseback riding, fly-fishing, golf, white-water rafting and historic tours.

The infamous Key West, Florida is home to the Westin Key West Resort & Marina Sunset Key Guest Cottages. The resort overlooks the Gulf of Mexico and is styled in the Victorian tradition of old Key West. They have two pools, sandy beaches, two tennis courts, fitness room, massage therapy, boutique shopping and a 37-slip marina with vendors that offer water sports.

The luxurious Beau Rivage Resort & Casino is located in Biloxi, Mississippi. This resort is a AAA Four Diamond resort that has both elegance and Southern charm. Accommodations have views of the Mississippi Gulf or the Back Bay, Grecian marble floors and surfaces, double pillow-top mattresses with triple sheeting, soaking tubs and more. The resort has a spa and salon, pool, golf course, casino, eleven restaurants and four bars.

Another incredible place to stay in the South, and very charming I might add, would be the Charleston Harbor Resort & Marina in Charleston Harbor, South Carolina. The resort has an 18-hole golf course, jogging track, private sandy beach, swimming pool and a 459-slip marina with charter service.

Stoweflake Mountain Resort & Spa in Stowe, Vermont is not just for snow skiing and enjoying the very scenic views. There is a par-3 golf course, indoor and outdoor pools, spa, fitness studio, and biking and hiking. This is a family owned resort and offers 200 rooms, suites and town houses.
