New Year Rejuvenation
Exhausted from all your holiday merry making? It’s time to grab your honey for some serious relaxation and head to Serenity by the Sea in Sandestin, Florida.
The holidays are a great time of year. We see family and friends and enjoy the blessings of giving, but after it is all said and done, the truth is, holidays can be quite exhausting. So, what to do before you totally jump into the challenges of the New Year? Invite your special someone to a getaway for two and head for the Serenity by the Sea spa at the Hilton Sandestin Resort in Sandestin, Florida.
Here the two of you can recover from your holiday escapades with spa packages such as the Four-Diamond. This decadent choice includes a 50-minute massage, 30-minute facial, pedicure, and a glass of wine of your choice from the resort’s AAA, fine dining restaurant, Seagar’s.
And if you’re partner is more comfortable outdoors than in, no worries there. Send him to one of the four championship Sandestin golf courses while you enjoy a Seawater Pearl Facial or a Serenity Pedicure. Afterwards, meet back at your room for champagne and chocolate-dipped strawberries. Enjoy the sunset from your balcony and take comfort knowing that you’re recharged and ready for great things in the coming year.
