Where to Spend Thanksgiving in 2022 – The 5 Star Luxury Hotel Community

Thanksgiving is not just a holiday with delicious turkey and other yummy goods but also a great opportunity to spend time with the family.

Thinking of doing something different this Thanksgiving? Why not visit new cities that offer a great way to get into the holiday spirit?

Of course, if you are lucky enough to live near one of these fabulous towns and hotels, you do not have to travel far to see the festivities up close. Here is a list of the best places to spend Thanksgiving in 2022.

Primland Resort

A great way to enjoy the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia on Thanksgiving weekend is to visit Shenandoah National Park, especially in the Luray area.

There is plenty to do. Go hiking, explore the Luray Caves, and walk the scenic route along Skyline Drive. The Blue Ridge Mountains are a natural paradise of forested peaks and sun-drenched valleys.

So, where should you stay? Primland Resort awaits you on its 12,000-acre mountain estate. As you can guess, it is in the heart of this unspoiled wilderness.

From regal cottages with emerald-green farms to romantic log cabins and treehouses perched above the Dan River Gorge, winding trails lead to many discoveries. Stroll along the banks of trout-rich streams. Moreover, if you are lucky – you might stumble upon deer silhouetted in a lighted clearing.

Enjoy the thrill of mountain biking combined with rejuvenation at the Auberge Spa. Watch unspoiled views and starry skies from the on-site observatory. Every moment is perfect at Primland Auberge Resort.

Enchantment Resort

Thanksgiving is an opportunity to spend with friends and family. It’s a chance to enjoy a delicious meal and kick off the holiday season. While many of us stay at home on Thanksgiving, others wish to take a few extra days off work to go somewhere new.

Arizona, for example, is a great place to travel in late November. Then, the weather is often mild and sunny, but the state is still full of holiday charm.

Enchantment Resort in Sedona is one of the most prestigious places to stay in this part of Arizona. You will immediately feel like royalty because of the quality of the resort.

The accommodation is located in Boynton Canyon and is surrounded by the famous, magnificent red rocks of Sedona. For this reason, many visitors call it the “slice of paradise.”

There is also a challenging but gorgeous golf course and various spa treatments available. Feeling thankful here won’t be a challenge!

Four Seasons Resort Lanai

Who says you cannot visit a tropical place for Thanksgiving? Hawaii is less crowded in November. Just imagine – having an oceanfront turkey dinner as you watch holiday parades with local Hawaiian bands.

Four Seasons Resort Lanai at Manele Bay is located on the island of Lanai. Its surroundings are stunning – volcanic mountains and tropical gardens.

The hotel is decorated in a traditional island style with modern design elements. Expect mahogany furniture upholstered in silk and velvet fabrics, bright carpets, and tapestries.

Here, Hawaiian sculptures and intricate patterns create a magical atmosphere. Furthermore, each room has a king-size bed, a marble bathroom, and a spacious balcony with panoramic views of the ocean or gardens.

What can you enjoy in the Four Seasons resort?

Four Seasons Lanai also boasts a spectacular spa. It offers Hawaiian massages and cosmetics made from traditional recipes for relaxing treatments.

The hotel’s restaurant serves a wide range of international, American, Hawaiian, and Italian cuisine.

While you are there, we suggest experiencing Luau. The popular Hawaiian tradition is observed on various holidays, and Thanksgiving is no exception. No matter where you are on the island, you will find a luau event nearby. In fact, it is a great way to sample local food, enjoy the culture, and spend time with your family!

In addition to enjoying good food, the hotel offers a variety of leisure activities. Try horseback riding, surfing, tennis, fishing, and more. Diving and snorkeling are particularly interesting, as a protected coral reef is nearby. Sports enthusiasts will be pleased to find golf courses overlooking the ocean.
