QTRAVEL (www.miami.com) What’s better than a round of golf in Miami? A round of golf in Miami that morphs into a vacation to Costa Rica’s Guanacaste Peninsula overlooking the rugged Pacific Ocean and then whisks you away to the white sand beaches of the tiny Caribbean island of Nevis. On your own private jet.
That’s exactly what Four Seasons Hotels and Magellan Jets have in mind with their “Private Jet Tropical Tee and Golf Tour” package, which will be available in April for a minimum of seven nights with rates starting at $132,000 for a party of eight ( one to twelve guests can be accommodated on a single jet).
This runway-to-fairway romp begins at the Four Seasons Hotel Miami and then jets off to the Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo followed by the Four Seasons Resort Nevis. Packages can be fully customized, but here’s an idea of what to expect.
Stop One: Urban Oasis at Four Seasons Hotel Miami
The Digs: Check into your luxury suite or condo-style accommodations equipped with a full-size kitchen or kitchenette and other home-away-from-home amenities at the Four Seasons Hotel Miami in Brickell, the tallest skyscraper south of Atlanta at 70 stories high.
The Golf: Tee off at the 18-hole Crandon Golf Course, rated one of the “Top Public Golf Courses in Florida,” by Golf Digest, and located on Miami’s barrier island of Key Biscayne. Enjoy an interactive Four Seasons dining experience with “Lunch on the Green” amidst 250 acres of tropical paradise.
The Perks: Enjoy an evening of shopping and dining in the luxurious Design District. Poolside pampering awaits on the hotel’s seventh floor, two-acre terrace with dinner at the newly renovated Bahía restaurant. You won’t take off on an empty stomach with daily breakfast at the hotel’s EDGE Steak & Bar included.
Stop Two: Coastal Beachfront Jungle Experience at Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo
The Digs: After a smooth flight and private SUV transfer to the Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo, check into your two or three-bedroom treehouse villa or larger residence at Casa del Cielo or Casa de la Luna, boasting panoramic vistas of Bay of Culebra and the Pacific Ocean. This hillside oasis is nestled between two golden sand beaches on the tip of Guanacaste’s exclusive Peninsula Papagayo. It’s a dose of luxury infused in Costa Rica’s pura vida living.
The Golf: Enjoy a round of golf on the resort’s signature 18-Hole Arnold Palmer Golf Course with sunset cocktails to follow at the 3rd hole.
The Perks: Get your adrenaline pumping with a zip lining adventure across rainforest canopies and then return to the resort for a locally-inspired cooking class that also combines astrology with Costa Rican gastronomy. Take advantage of treatments at the property’s award-winning spa and partake in their renowned wellness and fitness program.
Stop Three: Authentic Caribbean Luxury at Four Seasons Resort Nevis
The Digs: Forget about jetlag when you’re living that jetset lifestyle and arrive in style to the Four Seasons Resort Nevis. Check into a luxurious two- to four-bedroom private villa adjacent to the golf course and unwind with an in-villa, private chef dining experience upon arrival.
The Golf: Get your golf game on at the 6,766-yard, par-71 Robert Trent Jones II-designed course. The links range from Pinney’s Beach to the slopes of Nevis Peak and offers spectacular panoramic vistas of the Caribbean Sea and sister island St. Kitts.
The Perks: Indulge in spa treatments followed by an afternoon at the resort’s 200-square-foot luxury Beach House cabana. In the evening, get ready for a sumptuous private rum pairing dinner in the resort’s oceanfront Mango restaurant featuring killer cocktails by 101 Rums Bar.
When it’s time to jet home, no need to stress. The YU Lounge departure experience includes a dedicated concierge to handle all immigration and customs procedures while you enjoy gourmet hors d’oeuvres and Champagne in the refined atmosphere of the private airport before being whisked to the tarmac in a luxury vehicle where your private jet awaits.
