How's THIS for a romantic getaway? Guests of a certain hotel in Miami hop into a private plane for some aerial sightseeing, then jump out of the plane in a tandem skydive. After that it's back to the hotel for an hour-long “couple's massage” before nap time in their luxurious Parlor Suite (complete with its own Roman Tub).
If adrenaline rushes aren't your bag, another of the hotel's romance packages puts the hour-long massage first (this version using a tangerine mimosa essence) then moves on to a “sacred tantric touch connectedness session.” After that you'll be treated to a private “sexy yoga” class right in your room (in this package, you'll stay in the hotel's ultra classy Presidential Suite).
A third romance package puts couples in the hotel's Nocturne Fantasy Suite for two days of erotic treatments and experiences.
The three new packages – debuting just in time for Valentine's Day (Feb. 14) – are the latest additions to a growing number of promotions in the Mayfair Hotel & Spa's year-long “Mayfair Miami Vices” celebration.
What's the hotel got to do with the old TV series? Well, they were both "born" in 1984 – so the Mayfair is holding a dual 30th anniversary fest.
Millions of viewers watched the NBC series (remember its rat-ta-tat-tat opening theme?) each week as James “Sonny” Crockett (played by Don Johnson) and Ricardo “Rico” Tubbs (Philip Michael Thomas) blasted or otherwise put bad guys away against rockin' tunes by The Police, Jackson Browne, Roger Daltrey, Iron Maiden and the era's other heavy metal superstars.
Other chart-toppers from the TV series are being used to promote the three new romance packages: The Pointer Sisters' disco smash “Jump (For My Love)” for the skydiving thriller, Billy Idol's “Flesh for Fantasy” for the experience starting with the tangerine mimosa massage and Shannon's “Do You Wanna Get Away” for the erotic activities in the hotel's Nocturne Fantasy Suite.
“The Mayfair’s new collection of romantic escapes honors Miami Vice's groundbreaking use of pop music...it was the first TV program to broadcast in stereo and to feature current hit songs in every episode,” said the hotel’s General Manager Axel Gasser.
Among other Miami Vice promotions introduced earlier this year, guests can stand in for Sonny, Rico or Detective Saundra “Gina” Santiago in their own Miami Vice video (just itching to be posted on YouTube and the like), zoom back to the 80s in a vintage Ferrari and thunder across Biscayne Bay aboard an original Miami Vice speedboat.
Originally named The Mayfair House Hotel when it opened in 1984, the 179-suite Mayfair Hotel & Spa has been called “an artistic masterpiece blending design elements from Europe, Asia, the Caribbean, Mexico and South America.” It was a mecca for nightlife, glamor, notoriety and the other excesses of the 80s. Its famous nightclub, “Ensign Bitters,” was THE hangout of Miami's glitterati.
