You don’t need to go far to experience the lap of luxury. In fact, you can have a pretty amazing vacation without leaving the state. New Jersey has some incredible destinations where you’ll feel perfectly pampered. The following places are ideal for celebrating anniversaries, glamorous girl’s weekends or just getting away from it all. They cost some serious dough, but they are absolutely worth it! You won’t forget these trips!
1. Chateau Inn And Suites, Spring Lake
This charming inn is centrally located between Spring Lake Golf Club and Spring Lake Beach, across from picturesque Potter Park. Stay in one of the classic or luxury suites which start at $300 per night, peak season. Opt for the luxurious Signature Spa Package which includes a one hour couples massage, fitness center and pool passes, two bike rentals, a deluxe continental breakfast, fresh flowers, dinner for two and a selection of bath and massage oils.
2. Grand Cascades Lodge, Hamburg
Grand Cascades Lodge is New Jersey's premiere four season resort, offering access to golfing, mountain biking, waterparks, fishing and skiing. Amenities include Reflections Spa, The Biosphere Indoor/Outdoor Pool Complex and Mineral Sports Club, an indoor fitness center with tennis, racquetball and basketball courts, along with fitness classes and exercise equipment. While there are several room choices, I'd recommend a balcony suite. If you really want to splurge, go for the Grand Villa. Nightly rates for balcony suites start at $500, and there are a variety of packages to choose from which will add to the cost.
3. The Bernards Inn, Bernardsville
This exclusive inn is home to a famed fine dining establishment. The food is sublime and your stay will be spectacular. While the rooms are quaint, the amenities are plentiful. Pricing starts at just $200 per night, but the "extras" are what will make your stay unforgettable. Choose from in-room massages to wine tastings and even private helicopter tours!
4. Ocean Place Resort And Spa, Long Branch
Ocean-view suites in this hip hotel start at $750 per night, peak season. The hotel is located right on the beach in trendy Long Branch, next to the shops and nightlife of Pier Village. Amenities include indoor and outdoor pools, a fitness center, game room and spa.
5. The Borgata, Atlantic City
The Borgata is one of Atlantic City's hottest destinations. Why? Maybe because the slots are hot! It has one of the highest payout rates of any casino in the United States. It also has seriously swanky suites, multiple indoor and outdoor pools and a luxurious spa.
6. Caesar's, Atlantic City
A vacation destination fit for a king, or queen, Caesar's is located right in the heart of the Boardwalk. Stay in the 1000 square foot Emperor Suite, relax in the spa or enjoy the rooftop pool.
7. W Hotel, Hoboken
The W in Hoboken provides easy access to NYC, incredible views and the trendy Bliss Spa. Stay in one of the hotel's sizable suites, dine at the award winning ZYLO Restaurant or stroll around one of the most vibrant neighborhoods in New Jersey.
8. The Flanders Hotel, Ocean City
This historic all-suite hotel is located just south of Atlantic City in family friendly Ocean City. It is home to the largest heated outdoor pool in the area, a salon, spa, shops and Emily's Restaurant. Even the simplest of suites are stunning, but if you really want to splurge, go for one of the modern penthouse suites. Another option is the Lanai Suite with a massive private patio.
