Spa-goers yearning for a safari adventure that incorporates their minds, bodies, and spirits will appreciate two new wellness adventures from Elevate Destinations, a sustainable and green travel company. Both take place at Tassia Lodge, which is situated on 60,000 acres of community-owned conservation land in the remote Northern Rangelands region of Kenya. Active enthusiasts won’t want to miss the Body & Soul Safari (March 14-21), which involves daily hikes, massage, yoga, close-up cultural experiences with wildlife and local tribes people, and healthy cuisine made, using fresh, organic ingredients.
Individuals with a strong sense of mission will want to opt for the Roots and Wings: A Retreat with a Purpose (March 21-28). Guided meditation, yoga, safari, and visits with local Masaii to learn about their way of life give participants the chance to connect with themselves and achieve balance in their lives.

The Sandpearl Resort (Clearwater Beach, FL) is offering guests a night to remember and a unique way to usher in 2010. While every few years, we are graced with a blue moon, the next one is actually occurring on New Year’s Eve. Starting at $384, the Once in a Blue Moon package, available at the resort from December 31st through January 2nd, will be celebrating this enchanting event.
The package is sure to leave guests starry eyed as they are invited to follow a guided journey of the sky with an expert astronomer. For further romance and relaxation, they can kick back with cocktails around the resort’s fire pit, a sunrise yoga session on the beach, and two 50-minute Blue Moon Massages.
Memories of a relaxing New Year’s weekend aren’t the only things that will last forever after this trip. Guests are also given a personalized star from the International Star Registry. Once they name the star, they are given a certificate, an astronomy book, and a map with the constellation and star location.
