A sweetheart golf, art and spa deal at PGA National in South Florida
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – For golfers in or traveling to South Florida, here’s an idea for Valentine’s Day – especially if your sweetheart plays golf. PGA National Resort & Spa, home of the PGA Tour’s Honda Classic, is offering something it’s calling its SweetART Package. You can’t do it on Valentine’s Day, but you can present this package to him or her for the following weekend.
The package includes admission to a major art show in the area, breakfast, golf, spa treatments and overnight stay in the 379-room resort, which has undergone a $65 million renovation over the past couple years.
The SweetART Package is for the weekend of Feb. 17-19 (a couple of weeks before the Honda)and starts at $499 (per room, per night). It includes two general admission tickets to the ninth annual Palm Beach Jewelry, Art & Antique Show, deluxe accommodations, daily breakfast in the Citrus Tree Restaurant, one 50-minute spa treatment per person, per day (surcharge may apply for select treatments), one round of golf daily (per person) on The Haig, Squire, Estate and Palmer courses and unlimited practice balls and bag storage.
The Palm Beach Jewelry, Art & Antique Show is at the Palm Beach County Convention Center, while another option, the Artigras Fine Arts Festival – one of the premier shows in the U.S. – will be held simultaneously in neighboring Jupiter. Both are a 15-minute drive from the resort.
Meanwhile, you and your sweetheart also can take in a round of golf, then follow it with a spa treatment. The best part of the spa treatment might simply be being able to use the spa facilities. PGA National is unique in that it not only offers all the standard fare, but something called the Waters of the World as well. These are pools with imported types of water, including saltwater from the Dead Sea of Israel. You’ll have to experience this to understand how soothing it is. Because of the salt content it’s softer and you are more buoyant, the perfect complement to a Swedish massage.
Guests can also choose from 50 fitness classes at the 33,000-square-foot Health & Racquet Club, check out the resort’s zero-entry pool, or enjoy several on-site restaurants and lounges highlighted by the chef-driven Ironwood Steak and Seafood and sophisticated iBAR.
