50th B/Day Getaway... In September?

Jump to last reply

In need of a generous dose of guidance.

Turning 50 in August, but can't get away until/except September. Not sure yet if this is a trip with a few women friends or my husband. Criteria are generally the same for either trip.

First off, the obvious: September is prime hurricane month. I have heard, through forums, that the "ABC" islands are generally spared much of the worst of the hurricane season. But I'm not sure those islands have what I'm looking for.

My husband and I stayed and Biras Creek 12 or so years ago (before it was Relais et Chateau) and it really embodied what we like: fine food, upscale but not stuffy, kind of quirky, quiet and off beaten path, lots of ACTIVE activities to do right there - hiking, day sailers, swimming in ocean and pool, Boston Whalers, sea kayaking, gardens, bikes, tennis etc. Sooo sorry to hear of its sudden closure last summer. This would probably be a no-brainer otherwise.

So, of course, that's what I'm looking for. A bit decadent and luxurious but not snobby. Not too commercial or nightclubby or ... you know (no "Breezes"). Active activities to choose from without too many hoops or added fees. Great food and wine list. And a spa. Because I'm turning 50 and deserve an awesome massage and pedicure while I'm there! Oh, and in prime hurricane season.

Forum - I am at your kind mercy! Thanks in advance.
