#Adults can go wild!

An Adults-Only Resort with Personal Butlers and an Oceanfront Spa

Forewarning: if you plan to stay here, you must cope with having your very own in-room plunge pool, personal butler and custom-made mahogany four-poster bed.

We know. What a drag.

But assuming you’re still with us, the “here” we speak of is Serenity at Coconut Bay, an adults-only all-inclusive resort in the #Caribbean that more than lives up to its name. It’s open now, and, please, allow these pictures wash over you like a gentle beach breeze.

In the #interest of keeping it real, we’ll admit that this is very much a #honeymooners type of place, given the privacy of the suites and the fact that it’d be silly not to have your butler draw you at least one candle-lit #aromatherapy bath. However, we wouldn’t want you not being married (or just married) to keep you and someone special from enjoying...

There is a spa in #Iceland where you can soak in tubs of #beer

Now is the best time for #beerlovers to hop on a plane to Iceland.

Bjorbodin, Iceland’s first ever beer spa, has officially opened in #Árskógssandur, and it’s a paradise for people who have a passion for beer and are looking for a relaxing trip.

As a guest at the beer spa, you soak in a hot tub filled with beer, water, hops, and yeast for 25 minutes. Just let the hops and live yeast bubbles help you unwind.

After the soak, you move into a relaxation room for another 25 minutes. And yes, you can also drink some delicious beer while you’re #luxuriating in your rejuvenating beer bath. Each tub comes with a private beer draft, so it’s not recommended to drink your tub water.
