Carmel, CA (PRWEB) October 19, 2012
Whether it's the need of respite from the frantic pace of daily life, or just a relaxing getaway to the Carmel Valley wine region, Bernardus Lodge is the place to be this winter. The Carmel luxury hotel is offering a very special bed and breakfast package with a complimentary upgrade at booking through Jan. 31 (at a starting price of $335), and is exclusive of resort fees.
The getaway starts with complimentary Bernardus estate wine served to each guest upon arrival at the inviting Carmel boutique hotel. Charming guest rooms will await--each with a cozy fireplace, sumptuous feather bed and oversized bathtubs for two. Fresh-cut flowers and French doors opening onto a spacious balcony or patio with sweeping views of the Santa Lucia Mountains complete the ambiance. Guests may also opt to take part in a wealth of recreational activities and fine spa services available at the property.
Guests can then eat at the newly re-tooled Marinus Restaurant, where California regional cuisine, local organic seasonal produce, regional seafood and artisan-farmed meats are featured. Menu selections can be complemented with wine selected from the Marinus cellar, offering more than 1,575 wine selections and more than 28,000 bottles of wine. Wickets Bistro is more informal and perfect for a light meal, an outdoor beverage, or a lingering lunch or dinner.
The Spa at Bernardus Lodge is a romantic retreat that features steam and sauna rooms, a private outdoor tub and terra cotta walls that reflect the warming pool's shimmering blue images that all lend to its award-winning, rustic charm. The spa nurtures mind, body and spirit with luxurious treatments infused with pure and natural ingredients culled from the ocean, the vineyards and abundant, on-site organic gardens.
