Couple-Friendly Spas

Continued (page 2 of 2)

The Activities
Do the classic Napa thing: Float over the valley on a morning hot-air balloon ride, then go wine-tasting at some of the area's 240 vineyards. Or have Auberge pack you a gourmet picnic lunch, and hit the miles of hiking and biking trails nearby.

The Bliss Factor
When pure relaxation beckons, head for Spa du Soleil, built around a tranquil courtyard with private soaking pools. Book the lavish couples' suite with its cozy fireplace and choose a treatment. We suggest the Rendezvous: You apply warm mud to each other—they give you paintbrushes!—then cocoon in a heated wrap before a joint shower and grape-seed oil massage.

The Romance Quotient
Impeccable service is the cherry on this sybaritic sundae. Now all the two of you have to do is lie back, get comfortable, and enjoy.

Castries, St. Lucia

The Setting
What's more relaxing than a Caribbean honeymoon? A Caribbean spa honeymoon. This body-pleasing, all-inclusive resort is tucked into the northern tip of St. Lucia on peaceful Cariblue Bay. The grounds, draped in tropical foliage that hugs two-story white guest buildings, are dotted with a pool, tennis courts, fitness center, and golf course—all an easy stroll from your room.

The Vibe
Like you'd expect from the name, LeSport is designed for active adults (kids under 16 are not allowed) who want to do more than veg on the beach. The 155 colonial-style rooms have four-poster beds with muslin canopies and terraces. There's A/C if you want it, but no televisions to disturb your bliss. Diners have two options: a casual buffet in the breezy Cariblue Pavilion (vegetarian and light entrees are available, but so are desserts like chocolate cake) or the intimate Tao restaurant, featuring East-West fusion cuisine.

The Activities
You get sun and sand (and unlimited tropical drinks), plus dawn-till-dusk fitness activities—all included in the price. Choose from aerobics, tai chi, yoga, golf, scuba diving, kickboxing, and more. When you've had enough, head to the Oasis Spa for a different kind of bodywork. Set high on a hill, Oasis offers facials, wraps, scrubs (ginger and lime is divine), and thalassotherapy (heated seawater baths).

The Bliss Factor
Sign up for the twosome-tailored Honeymoon Massage. A therapist gives you hands-on instruction in Swedish massage, then you get to take your know-how home.

The Romance Quotient
It's St. Lucia, so there are sensational sunsets, sexy reggae and calypso beats, and yummy tropical flavors. If it's stress-free indulgence you're after, you'll find it at LeSport.
