Hilton Grand Vacations recommends four romantic vacations to add a little heat this winter

The Vacationeer

Cold weather doesn't have to mean frigid nights. Hilton Grand Vacations recommends five romantic winter vacations that add a little heat this season. 

Mystic Hot Springs

If you are dreaming of the most romantic winter getaways, they might include bunny slopes, hot tubs, and starry nights. A ski trip to Monroe, Utah is a perfect way to spend time together, enjoying the winter air. Let’s add some heat to those cold winter nights, with a visit to the mineral-rich waters of Mystic Hot Springs

You and your partner can relax in a naturally heated tub while admiring the rock formations that have stood there for centuries. There are several different soaking pools at Mystic, ranging from 100 - 111 degrees. 

Mystic Hot Springs also offers massage and hydrotherapy, so you can leave feeling renewed, and ready to live your best life. Treatments include: 

  • Swedish Massage 
  • Deep Tissue 
  • Acupressure 
  • Trigger Point Therapy 
  • Hypnosis 
  • Sound 
  • Essential Oils 

Where to Stay:  Sunrise Lodge, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club

Napa/Sonoma Day Trip 

Enjoy a day trip to wine country where you can indulge in California wines by the fire. Here are just a few of our favorite wineries to taste. 


  • For a large selection of varietals, an expansive gift shop and market and a spacious picnic area, visit V Sattui Winery.
  • Visit the historic tasting room of Sequoia Grove Winery to sip wine behind a redwood bar.


  • For one of the oldest family-run wineries in the region, visit, Gundlach Bundshu. Here you will enjoy indoor and outdoor tasting rooms, wine caves to tour and live music venues.
  • Step back in time at Buena Vista Winery and enjoy the cozy feel you’ll have inside the tasting room. 

Where to Stay: Club Donatello a short drive away in San Francisco

Flora’s Field Kitchen

Turn up the heat with a salsa-making class and a long lunch at Flora Farms in Los Cabos, Mexico. Your master chefs will teach you how to make authentic salsas, tortillas, and more in a beautiful outdoor kitchen. At the end of your cooking class, you will get to enjoy the recipes you crafted and receive a cookbook to bring home with you.

The Hana Highway 

If you are looking for a winter vacation filled completely with warmth and sun, get on the next flight to Maui, Hawaii. Spend your time on the island hunting for waterfalls and colorful sand beaches. The Road to Hana offers the perfect fun-in-the-sun adventure.

Visitors have said that the road to Hana is about the journey, not the destination. The full drive takes a day, and we highly recommend not rushing it. During your road trip, you’ll want to stop off at these places: 

  • Ho’okipa State Park in Paia to spot sea turtles sunbathing on the shore 
  • Twin Falls, a beautiful farm known for its two stunning waterfalls 
  • Huelo Lookout, a quaint roadside fruit stand that also sells Hawaiian Shave Ice 
  • Aunt Sandy’s Banana Bread 
  • Nu’u Bay, a black-sand beach and archaeological site 

Where to Stay: Maui Bay Villas by Hilton Grand Vacations Club (opening soon)
