Looking for a Valentine’s spa getaway – with a deal? How about Vieques? Ah, where? Vieques, actually a Puerto Rican island, making it a USA location as well.
The locals pronounced "Bee-eh-kes." Many know it as Isla de Vieques. It is unique. It was a major target practice (bombing range) site for the US Navy for over 60 years, which kept it out of the tourism business until 2003 when the Navy moved on. The US Fish and Wildlife administration now has jurisdiction, making the island largest national refuge in the Caribbean.
Now there's the W Retreat & Spa, which has a Valentine’s special ready for you. The “Sneak Away for a Romantic Rendezvous” package includes a three-course dinner at the newly opened Sorcé restaurant, daily breakfast for two, a one-time $200 credit at AWAY Spa, sunset champagne toasts, and a complimentary 4 p.m. check out with an upgrade to the next room category (based on availability).
A three night minimum length of stay is required, starting as low as $387 per night through February. Book it online at www.wvieques.com/romance by entering the rate code “WWUV1,” or by calling 1-877-822-0000 and mentioning the rate code.
Vieques is a short flight from Puerto Rico and a paradise away from everything. If you go, a must-see is the brightest bioluminescent bay, said to be the brightest in the world.
