Residents Enjoy Spa, Dining, Aphrodisiac Cooking, Cocktails, and Jazz
The most romantic resort in the desert, Miramonte Resort & Spa is celebrating Valentine’s Day the entire month of February with “28 Days of Love.” Love is not only in the air, but in the restaurant, the spa, the lounge, and throughout the intimate Mediterranean resort.
The first event of the month is a revitalizing Spa Party at the award-winning spa, THE WELL. On Thursday February 7th from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. attendees will experience a sensorial journey of up to six mini-spa treatments featuring Germaine de Capuccini products. The event includes appetizers and a beverage for $50. Great for couples or friends.
The next notable rendezvous involves learning a little “fork-play” on February 9th from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. with Diane Brown Savahge, author of “The Seduction Cookbook.” Ms. Brown teaches a cooking class that explains how to use food to create an all-important sense of romantic anticipation. The hands-on demonstration provides recipes, food sampling and a glass of wine for $25 per person or $45 per couple. Participants depart with a copy of “The Seduction Cookbook,” and receive a 10 percent discount to enjoy Miramonte’s Amoré dinner.
The “Amoré Menu” created by Executive Chef Robert Nyerick is laden with aphrodisiac qualities; giving couples the opportunity to ignite flames of passion. Crafted to entice the taste buds and excite the senses, this menu features Lobster and Shrimp Ravioli with Basil Cream, Duet of Panko Seared Sea Bass and Grilled Filet of Beef with roasted baby Root Vegetables followed by Chocolate Decadence. The “Amoré Menu” is available February 8 through the 17th for $55 per person. Reservations are recommended.
Prior to dinner, or just to cast spells over one another, the Vineyard Lounge offers “Love Potions” such as The Chocolate Kiss, Queen of Hearts, Rose Water Martini, and Adam & Eve cocktails.
Jazz enthusiasts will find Grooves on the Green – produced in partnership by Miramonte and the beautiful Indian Wells Golf Resort (across the highway from the resort) – a perfect setting for romance. The evening under the stars is on Saturday, February 16th starting at 7:30 p.m. featuring world-class musicians Steve Oliver, Paul Jackson, Jr., Phil Perry and Brian Simpson. Ticket prices vary and can be purchased at www.GroovesOnTheGreen.com or by calling (760) 834-3812. Make it a Valentine’s Day “staycation” to remember by booking overnight accommodations at Miramonte that include VIP tickets to Grooves on the Green.
Always a romantic gift or experience, treatments at THE WELL Spa give couples the opportunity to connect and relax together. The exclusive “Pittura Festa” Painting Party treatment begins in a private outdoor cabana with a palette of therapeutic and colorful muds and brushes that couples use to paint one another. In addition to being sexy and fun, the nourishing muds detoxify the body and help soothe the muscles and joints. After rinsing off in the Swiss shower, couples enjoy simultaneous 60-minute Maestro massages. The “Pittura Festa” is $350 per couple.
Exclusively in February 2013 at THE WELL Spa, the Sweetheart Package is an excellent value for couples. Start with a 45-minute side-by-side massage with patchouli and rose Lover’s Blend oil, followed by a 15-minute couple’s soak with champagne and take home a Cupid-approved Kama Sutra romance kit for only $225 per couple.
For those in need of a little “Couples Therapy,” THE WELL Spa has the perfect remedy. The treatment begins with a 25-minute, hands-on customized massage instructional by one of our therapists teaching couples basic massage movements that can be performed on each other. Afterward the couple stays together for a 60-minute Couples’ Maestro massage for $325 per couple.
