Escape to the Caribbean or a windy city, one way or another, a deal is waiting for you.
The place: Dominican Republic
You know. Beyonce, the Kardashians, J Lo, Cameron Diaz and Carlos Santana can’t be wrong – can they? If you feel like doodling like a headliner, head to La Romana, the Dominican Republic’s southwestern Caribbean coastal city (and the surrounding tropical expanse), where sugar cane peps the grounds and turquoise beaches make your heart beat faster. The jet set is the best of them at Casa del Campo Resort & Villas. This member of the Leading Hotels of the World spans a 7,000-acre retreat with a marina, tennis and riding centers, private beaches, a spa, and numerous boutiques, pools, and three Pete Dye-designed golf courses. Experience golf-buff-style puppy love at the resort’s Teeth of the Dog, number one in the Caribbean. This classic course was named after its dog’s legs and has seven of its 18 holes overlooking the sea. Divers can take a dip just off Catalina Island, just a mile and a half from La Romana, where a healthy coral reef offers unforgettable immersions like the Captain Kidd shipwreck. The Altos de Chavon Village, a folly, was built to reflect in every detail a Mediterranean village from the 16th century. Expect more than planned in the multitude of shops and galleries in its charming entertainment district.
The deal: Take advantage of the breathtaking romantic package Casa Del Campo Resort & Villas. Starting at US $ 299 a night, get luxury accommodations for two gold carts to use during your stay, daily breakfast (including a “breakfast in bed”), and 50-minute couples massage. Valid until December 20th, 2021. Must be booked by March 15th, 2021. Casadecampo.com.do/vacation-packages-offers/romance-in-casa
The place: Chicago
You will be blown away. . . in the windy city. A fantasy of towering skyscrapers, iconic architecture, glamorous shopping, top chefs, bustling festivals and staunch sports teams, Chicago is considered a sexy escape to the city. The Drake Hotel, a historic source of luxury and sophistication, embodies his spirit. A haven for kings and queens loved by movie stars, a hangout for Al Capone (a private outdoor balcony accessed through a hidden door disguised as a bookcase was supposedly his oasis), and a place so eccentrically opulent that Baby alligators Once in its fountain, The Drake knows how to pamper honeymooners. Enjoy the Gesture of Grandeur Package (starting at $ 150,000), which features accommodation in the Hidden Residence (a high-ceilinged apartment on the top floor), flowers from the on-site flower shop, private dance to a personal violin concert, and a decadent seven-course dinner at Candlelight, private breakfast at the booth where Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio carved their initials, private photography on the hotel and much more.
The deal: Consider the cheaper date night package. It can be booked with the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit in Chicago on the Immersive Van Gogh Exhibit website. Get a hotel stay, bottle of champagne, bouquet of flowers, box of chocolate truffles, hotel amenities, and more – plus a private balcony to enjoy the exhibition. In honor of its 100th anniversary, the hotel is offering room rates of $ 100 through April 10th.
