Vacations Built for Two

Sail | Beach

BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS In less than a week you can hike Mount Sage on Tortola, snorkel among giant volcanic boulders in the Baths, and share a rum punch at Jost Van Dyke Island's Soggy Dollar bar. Bareboating (you captain your own boat) is cheapest, but if you want a crew, check out Regency Charter Services (800/524-7676; www.rcsfleet.com; $4,500 for eight days on a 50-foot boat with crew, including all meals and drinks).

ST. JOHN Find your land legs at Caneel Bay Resort (888/767-3966 or 340/776-6111; www.caneelbay.com; doubles from $395) on tiny St. John. Promising to help guests nurture their "mental, physical, and spiritual well-being," the resort's Self Centre spa has chakra meditation, vibrational-sound therapy, and, of course, couples' astrology.

Action | Zen

TOKYO With its wild karaoke bars, frenetic fish markets, flashing neon lights, and flashier hipster fashions, Tokyo is literally bursting with energy. Towering above it all is the Park Hyatt Tokyo (3-7-1-2 Nishi Shinjuko; 800/233-1234 or 81-3/5322-1234; tokyo.park.hyatt.com; doubles from $374), a high-rise with views to Mount Fuji.

HAKONE Modernity melts away at the Hakone Ginyu (100-1 Miyanoshita; 206/282-0727; www.luxuryryokan.com; doubles from $604). Soak in a traditional onsen (hot spring) at this tranquil ryokan spa, overlooking a national park.
