T+L Asks: Ultimate Getaway?
After two days at Two Bunch Palms Resort & Spa in Desert Hot Springs, California, you feel as if you've had 10 days' vacation. This luxurious, sensual spa serves fabulous food, and no children are allowed.
I E-mail a bush guide in Alaska any month in winter and let him know I'm on my way. After hitching six of his dogs to my sled, we head north into the wilderness of the Brooks Range for a week or so. We blaze trails through miles of pristine snow and awesome purple-lit days, then pitch tents each night under the boiling action of the northern lights.

I love La Digue Island Lodge in the Seychelles for its white-sand beaches, clear aquamarine water, and palm trees.

Kona Village Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii has a beautiful oceanfront setting, thatched-roof bungalows, and lush tropical plants. No phones, no TV's, no coat and tie; you really can get away from it all. We'll be there this summer for the 10th time.
We fell in love with Canada's charming Prince Edward Island. My husband and I rented a house overlooking Northumberland Strait. There are more than 50 public beaches along the coastline, as well as hiking and biking trails and great food.

I go to Maui and drive to Kahakuloa Head on a narrow, one-lane road, hugging the ocean cliffs all the way. Once I arrive, I feel as if I'm at the end of the world.
For wide-open spaces, isolation, clear starry skies, and you-can-see-forever views, my favorite is Marathon, Texas, about an hour's drive from Big Bend National Park. The Gage Hotel there is comfortable, with a great restaurant and big swimming pool.
We escape to Key West, Florida. It's relaxed and the people are so friendly that you think you're on a Caribbean island. The weather and water are always beautiful. The only thing you have to avoid is hurricane season. We recommend it to everyone.

Las Vegas is the place for me. There is so much to do and see that I forget all my troubles. Sometimes I even get lucky at the tables.
