If you were a celebrity, regardless of whether you were a blockbuster movie star or a reality show B-lister, your life might look a little like this: You're poolside at sunset, sipping a cocktail, and whiling away the time before your massage.
Celebrity or not, that's what you'll get as you soak up the decadence of the Casa Munras Hotel & Spa in Monterey, a world-class travel destination just two hours from San Francisco. Escape for a one-night stay for two in a Deluxe Fireplace Room, Sundays through Thursdays ($139) or Fridays and Saturdays ($179) starting August 29.
And the luxe life doesn't come without its perks: You'll have a $50 credit toward a 50- or 80-minute tension-melting or face-beautifying treatment at Sano Spa and a $40 credit at Estéban, named Monterey's Best New Restaurant in 2007 and Best Small Plates in 2010 by Monterey County Weekly thanks to its Mediterranean-inspired seafood tapas, swanky downtown setting, and all-inclusive atmosphere.
Though you could revel like a big shot in the hotel's luscious luxury, Monterey is chockablock with star-worthy fun. Summon your assistant to caddy for you at the world-famous Pebble Beach golf course, or check out the sea life at Monterey Bay Aquarium. For a cruise unrivaled even in Malibu, hit the 17-Mile Drive or the Big Sur coastline on Highway 1, touted as two of the most scenic drives in the world.
Or, just don your coolest don't-bother-me-I'm-famous shades and take a walk on one of the incredible stretches of beach alongside jagged cliffs and lush redwood forest. Once back at Casa Munras, enjoy one last peaceful sit by your private fireplace before you return to reality. Wow, it's good to be an A-lister.
