Il Lugano Hotel Offers Gourmet Girls’ Getaway Deal


Gather the gaggle of girls, it’s time for Florida. Offering a Ladies’ Getaway package (with exclusive additions just for Fodor’s), Il Lugano Hotel in Fort Lauderdale has got a little something for everyone. The package includes a two-night stay in the Grand Lugano Suite, welcome cocktails, turndown service (complete with chocolates), a reserved poolside cabana, private waterfront yoga classes, paddleboarding lessons, and, for readers only, a private mozzarella pulling class with chef Joe. And all that runs you just $599/per person for two nights.

While you’re in the hotel, it would be silly not to sample some of the dimly lit da Campo Osteria restaurant’s Italian fare, or the complimentary transport to nearby attractions in a the hotel’s Escalade (big enough to fit all the girls). To really splurge, the hotel will arrange a private yacht charter, though that’s not included in the deal. And if any of the girls start to worry that it sounds like too much indulgence, the hotel does have a full on fitness center that overlooks the water.

Insider Tip: While the hotel is chock full of things to do (and places to lounge), spend an afternoon on an Everglades Island Airboat Tour or touring the Bonnet House Museum & Gardens.
