Ready for a getaway for two, far from the daily grind? Four destinations plus four suggestions equals an adventurous getaway with your other half. Together, you'll set off for mysterious new destinations. Exciting discoveries and delightful surprises are the order of your escape for two.
Immerse yourself in a leisurely trip to North-Eastern Brazil
Watch as the sun goes down and casts a golden light on the strip of sand stretching out before you. You’re on Boa Viagem beach, Recife’s answer to Copacabana. Soothed by the turquoise waters of the natural pools formed by the coral reef, indulge in the beauty of these mesmerising light effects. Then, head back to the Mercure Recife Navegantes
hotel on foot, watching the sea gently lapping at the shore.
At night, comfortably tucked up in your spacious hotel room, anticipate the following day's adventure exploring Porto de Galinhas. Multicoloured fish and palm trees await you in this old fishing village where your trip for two continues.
Lose yourselves in the wide open spaces of British Columbia
Your outdoor adventure in British Columbia harnesses the natural beauty of both the ocean and the mountains, with canyons, mountain streams and forests all showcasing breathtaking scenery. In Cathedral Grove, beneath the immense canopies of the trees in MacMillan Park, your couple's escape will take a magical turn.
Back in your hotel room overlooking Stanley Park, it’ll be hard to believe that, just a few hours ago, you were 70 metres above ground level on the Capilano Suspension Bridge. This green oasis is nestled in the heart of Vancouver, a stone’s throw from the Fairmont Waterfront hotel
. Relax and revel in the most memorable trip you've ever had.
Mayan ruins, colonial architecture and sun-kissed sand in Yucatan
Still spellbound by your tour of the Mayan ruins in Uxmal, you'll stroll hand in hand through the backstreets of Mérida, known as the White City. The imposing San Ildefonso Cathedral will grab your attention instantly. From the Zocalo terrace where you'll sip delicious cocktails, admire its 16th century façade which lights up before your eyes as the night falls.
The following day’s itinerary offers a dramatic change in scenery. Palm trees and transparent waters set the mood as you leave the ibis Mérida hotel
, the ideal base from which to explore the peninsula. Lay your towel down on the white sand of Progreso beach and head straight for the water, the waves gently crashing as you wade in.
Discover the charm of traditional Japan
Just off the Shinkansen, Japan’s bullet train, you leave the station and walk to the ibis Styles Kyoto
. Its perfect location in the heart of Kyoto allows you to explore the city’s beautiful temples and traditional neighborhoods. Soon you are heading for the Gion district: a kimonoed silhouette disappears around the street corner—an image from another century. A few minutes on and you're standing in awe before the Yasaka Shrine. This is the epitome of serenity.
Tradition, architecture and cuisine: you'll be delighted by the various elements which make Kyoto so refined.
