Depending on what you prefer to do, Virginia has many luxury options for adults and couples to choose from. Whether it is a stay at the beach where you can fine dine and watch the sunset, or stay in the peaceful countryside overlooking the beautiful scenery, this article outlines some of the best options in Virginia.
Luxury at the beach
If the sand, sea, and spa sound like your kind of luxury, then a stay at the Cavalier might just be for you. The Cavalier originally opened in 1927 and overlooks the exclusive north end of Virginia Beach. It has a timeless charm that is overflowing with history and elegance and is known for its rich, world-class experience. There is a private beach club and bar, an onsite spa, saltwater pools, three upscale restaurants, and is the only luxury hotel to have its onsite bourbon distillery. With the Cavalier, you get more than luxury, and wouldn’t even need to leave the resort, as there is everything you could need on-site.
Do you like your luxury trips to have more adventure and thrill? If so, there are plenty of outdoor activities for you to choose from all over the state, but especially at Virginia Beach. Opt for a kayak tour of the Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and witness the beautifully preserved waterways around the beach and aquatic wildlife such as sea turtles and dolphins. Depending on how much time you have, you can also take a tour of a sustainable and educational working farm at the New Earth Farm. Explore their 21-acres of land, attend a cooking farm-to-table class and visit the 2,000 square foot market.
Luxury outdoor retreats
If you want to combine both luxury accommodation and outdoor activities, then why not head to the Blue Ridge Mountains. Located across 12,000 acres, you can expect to take outdoor adventures and luxury to a whole new level. There are plenty of luxury accommodations you can choose from up the mountains, for example, the Primland, Auberge Resorts Collection, that include farm-to-table cuisine from local sources, an exquisite view of the mountains, and fully equipped private cottages with everything you need. During the day, head out into the mountains and take part in one of the countless activities around, including hiking, golf, archery, sporting clays, fly fishing, horseback riding, yoga and meditation, kayaking, RTC trail riding, tennies, and stargazing.
Luxury in the countryside
Virginia Wineries are located in the heart of the countryside and are perfect for a quiet retreat away from the hustle and bustle of life. Experience the miles of breathtaking vineyards planted in the early 1900s, along with breweries, cideries, and distilleries, all for your viewing and tasting pleasure. Watch the sunrise through the mountains, walk through the captivating meadows, and indulge in a picnic while sipping on wine and enjoying the stunning view. After an afternoon or weekend retreat at a Virginia Winery, you’ll be sure to feel relaxed and rejuvenated.
Virginia is more than just a beautiful state. In Virginia you can retreat to a place of luxury, and spend your time in the peaceful countryside, spending the day at the spa or heading out for adventures, completely tailoring the trip to meet your desires.
