It’s officially summer … and officially time for a vacation. If you don’t already have your grand summer adventure planned, these Virtuoso hotels are offering up a few new ideas:

Catch a show at New Mexico’s gorgeous open-air Crosby Theatre.
Opera comes with a view at Santa Fe’s open-air Crosby Theatre, surrounded by the Jemez and Sangre de Cristo mountains. Celebrate the new season – featuring the electronic-music-inspired “The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs” – with help from the opera concierge at the 58-room Rosewood Inn of the Anasazi. The concierge can procure VIP tickets, behind-the-scenes tours, and picnic-basket dinners for preshow tailgating. Virtuoso travelers receive breakfast daily and a $100 dining credit.

See London while keeping up with your workout routine.
The new Lanesborough Club & Spa takes the 93-room London establishment from an elegant Hyde Park hotel to a full-service urban resort, complete with an 18,000-square-foot wellness wing. Personal trainers, dancers, and yoga instructors lead classes in the gym, which is decked out with Woodway treadmills, Keiser bikes, and boxing gear. Holistic-wellness brand Bodyism provides nutritionists; aesthetician Anastasia Achilleos handles the facials; and chefs for the private dining room prepare low-fat fare. Virtuoso travelers receive breakfast daily, a $100 dining or spa credit, and spa access.

Vacation in the Florida Keys, with a day-trip to Cuba thrown in too.
Key West, Florida’s 40-cottage Sunset Key Cottages has introduced private-jet day trips to Havana. The super-luxe splurge is available for groups of up to six, and itineraries can be completely customized – join a historian for an architectural tour and then visit a cigar factory with a local cigar sommelier, for example. Virtuoso travelers receive breakfast daily and a $100 hotel credit.

Romantic retreat: Have the spa to yourselves under the stars.
Book the Spa at Four Seasons Resort Nevis and stargaze under the Caribbean sky, just you and your partner. For three hours in the evening, the spa transforms into a “Spa Under the Stars” and the couple can enjoy the volcanic-stone whirlpool, a Japanese-inspired cold plunge pool, and steam room. A signature Nevisian massage for two rounds out the evening. The hotel can also book a candle-lit dinner. Virtuoso travelers receive breakfast daily and a $100 spa or golf credit.
