IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Meritage Collection, a portfolio of luxury and lifestyle hotels and resorts throughout California and Hawaii, is encouraging snowbirds looking for a break from the winter weather to take advantage of its Taste of Sunshine packages at one of its six sun-kissed resorts. Its properties include The Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa Valley, California, Bacara Resort & Spa in Santa Barbara, California, Paséa Hotel & Spa in Huntington Beach, California, Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach, California, Estancia La Jolla Hotel & Spa in California, and Ko'a Kea Hotel & Resort on the Hawaiian island of Kauai. Reflective of the destination, the packages range from learning to read the swell during a salty surf lesson in Kauai to indulging in a picnic lunch after a private wine tasting in Napa Valley. To book one of these experiences, please visit the Taste of Sunshine webpage on the Meritage Collection's website.
Steve Arnold, chief operating officer, Pacific Hospitality Group – parent company to Meritage Collection, says: "We are excited to offer new and returning guests a variety of locally-inspired packages that allow them to experience our iconic resort destinations."
In collaboration with Black Tomato, the luxury travel experts, the Collection created The Sunshine Series, a set of videos that brings to life the experiences of the Taste of Sunshine packages. From the luscious Garden Isle of Kauai to the beautiful coastlines of California, each of the six videos focuses on a different Meritage Collection property and immerses viewers into each resort location. Celebrated locals, such as Chef Cindy Pawlcyn, an award-winning author and Napa Valley restauranteur, help to curate the videos and discuss how the destination serves as an inspiration to both residents and visitors alike.
