Dig the Long Ball: Enter now to win a golf getaway to Arizona, including a three-night stay for two at The Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa, airfare and two rounds of golf.
Surrounded by white sandy beaches, lush forestation, rivers and waterfalls, Hawaii is far, far away from just about everything. With no distractions, you can focus on chilling out – and revving up the romance in your relationship.
Rest: Fall asleep to waves crashing at the Moana Surfrider, located a stone’s throw from Waikiki beach on the island of Oahu. It’s the perfect home base for adventures – but with rooftop gardens and luxe spas, you may not want to leave. Book your stay using Cash & Points on your Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express and use the savings to pamper yourselves in true Hawaiian style. 2365 Kalakaua Ave., 808-922-3111.
Rejuvenate: The Moana Lani Spa redefines relaxation with its Renewal for Two package: Think private couples massage, spa treatments, and a soak together in a private whirlpool. Gentlemen, you know where this is going. 2365 Kalakaua Ave., 808-237-2535.
Stroll: Hike through Foster’s Botanical Garden, and catch the garden’s 24 “Exceptional Trees,” which are deemed so because they’re really old, really rare or really big. It’s a walk in the park – on steroids. 50 North Vineyard Blvd., 808-522-7060.
Dine: For elegant waterfront dining, The Beachhouse at the Moana can’t be beat. Sit on the terrace and go to town on the Ocean Raw Bar fresh seafood assortment for two. 2365 Kalakaua Ave., 808-921-4600.
Party: What’s a Hawaiian retreat without a Luau? Paradise Cove offers a Hawaiian buffet, traditional live entertainment, and complimentary cocktails, including a Mai Tai – a cocktail whose name comes from the expression “Out of this world!” You’ll surely agree. 92-1089 Alii Nui Drive. 1-800-775-2683.
Rather hit the clubhouse than the Luau? Enter now to win a golf getaway to Arizona, including a three-night stay for two at The Westin La Paloma Resort & Spa, airfare and two rounds of golf.
