Fairmont, Cadillac Team for FScape Getaway Packages
Back in May, Cadillac announced that it struck a multi-year deal with Fairmont Hotels & Resorts. Now, as summer transitions to fall and Americans consider taking an autumn/winter vacation, Cadillac and Fairmont have announced F-Scapes, a variety of pre-planned vacations for visitors at 42 of the chain’s North American resorts.
These experiences, co-created with Cadillac, are not available to the general public. Rather they are specifically designed for the kind of upper-crust clientele who populate Fairmont’s various locales. All 42 experiences are listed at www.fscapes.com, where they are broke out into five separate categories—“Adventurous,” “Cultured,” “Epicurean,” “Relaxing,” and “On the Road.”
The activities vary from swimming alongside whale sharks in the Mayan Riviera to co-piloting a Boeing 767 for an hour-long flight simulation to snorkeling among the coral reefs of Bermuda and taking a historical whiskey tour of Pittsburgh.
By far, the most opulent of the getaways is the SoCal Trifecta Adventure:
Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows will make guests’ flights of fantasy come true with this spectacular, one-in-a-million experience. After enjoying a delicious dinner at FIG, the hotel’s seasonal bistro, adventurers will rest up for a big day in the lavish three-bedroom presidential suite, Bungalow One. Then, at sunrise, they’ll begin an epic journey of exploration through the desert, mountains and seas of southern California—all with private guides, via a private jet. They’ll scale the majestic granite domes of the famous Joshua Tree National Park before being whisked away to Big Bear Lake for an exhilarating mountain bike tour down scenic, tree-lined slopes. Next, they’ll fly to Catalina Airport, where a helicopter will deliver them to a private boat on the harbor of this gorgeous island to spend an afternoon swimming, snorkeling or practicing stand-up paddle board skills. The adventure finishes with an unforgettable feast and cocktails on deck, as the sun sets on the most unforgettable day ever. From $55,000 for a two-night stay for up to six people.
$55,000 for two nights for up to six people. Break that down, and if you manage to get together five friends to accompany you, you’ll each be footing $4,583 a day. That’s some kinda vacation.
As part of the packages, you’ll be provided complimentary trips to and from places within a mile of the hotel in a Cadillac vehicle. Road trip packages, including those through the Rockies, Eastern Canada, Vancouver, Northern California, Massachusetts, and Maryland and Virginia will also utilize the services of Cadillac vehicles.
Packages are expected to be revamped and altered to accommodate for winter.
