No Longer a Figment of Your Imagination: Four Seasons Brings Extraordinary Experiences to Life with Special Offers at Hotels and Resorts Around the World.

Value-add packages help turn dreams to reality this spring.

TORONTO, Jan. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Where will imagination take you this year? Imagine zipping through Paris in the back of a plush Rolls Royce; riding elephants along the Mekong River; arriving by helicopter and strapping on custom-made skis atop pristine snow; swimming with manta rays and blacktip reef sharks; cruising to deserted islands on a yacht; or tucking into fresh caught lobster at the ultimate Caribbean beach barbecue.

This spring, Four Seasons hotels and resorts worldwide are featuring value-add packages that provide extra incentive to see where imagination can lead, including Stay Longer promotions that award a complimentary night's accommodations with a minimum number of nights booked, and Experience More packages that include hotel or resort credits to be applied to dining, spa and a globe-spanning variety of unique experiences.

Beginning now through April 30, 2013, Four Seasons offers ideas to inspire the imagination:

Now Imagine This:

In Paris, a custom-designed collaboration between Rolls-Royce, the fashion house Hermes and Four Seasons Hotel George V perfectly encapsulates the style of the City of Lights. A hand-built, totally unique Rolls Royce Phantom can be booked for a day's shopping or to simply explore this beautiful city.

At Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle, the adventure of a lifetime includes trekking elephants through the lush jungle and spectacular mountain trails of Northern Thailand. At the end of the journey, travellers unwind in luxurious tented accommodations with the comfort of traditional, handcrafted furnishings.

Breathtaking vistas outside Four Seasons Resort Jackson Hole are home to the largest elk herd in the world and an inspiring array of wildlife. Cozy in a horse drawn sleigh, travellers watch the snow-capped mountains glide by, or experience the rush of skiing, hiking, biking or rafting through this beautiful wilderness in Wyoming, USA.  

Travellers explore the aquatic side of nature at Four Seasons Resorts Maldives. The remote shores and diving sites of the atolls amaze, as divers are joined by majestic manta rays. Untouched, underwater discoveries await.

After a day of Tanzanian adventures at Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti, travellers cool down at a free-form infinity pool that overlook an elephant herd's watering hole, bringing one so close they'll feel as though they're swimming with them. Bar service makes it an idyllic setting to watch the glorious Serengeti sunset too. 

The romance of Italy is captured perfectly within the walls of Four Seasons Hotel Firenze, a lovingly restored 15th century Florentine palazzo. The 205 square metre (2,206 square foot) de' Medici Presidential Suite is the crown jewel, featuring breathtaking views of Giardino del Borgo and the Hotel's own Giardino della Gherardesca. It's literally fit for royalty.

In Shanghai, floor-to-ceiling windows frame the vibrant skyline and the FLARE Spa pool's infinity edge brings the city's energy even closer while wrapping oneself in an oasis of calm at Four Seasons Hotel Pudong, Shanghai. A more secluded treat in one of the VIP Spa Suites, complete with whirlpool and rain shower for two, enhances the experience.

Travellers can explore the lush, tropical coastline surrounding Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita, Mexico at their own pace on board a 55 foot (17 metre) yacht, furnished to the highest standard, setting adventurers free to discover the enchanting nearby islands, or to experience a unique ocean-view of one of the world's most stunning sunsets.

For the best access to mountain views and fresh, untouched snow, Four Seasons Resort Whistler takes guests via helicopter with a set of custom-made Prior skis or a snowboard to use that day, and take home.  Apres ski massages and a wine reception are the perfect ending to an adrenalin-packed day.

Leaving the calm and tranquillity of the beautiful lagoon at Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora, travellers go on the hunt for exhilaration, whether being entertained by clown fish and bull rays, or setting hearts racing as they swim up close with blacktip reef sharks.

An exclusive day of diving serves up more than just an experience of underwater nature at Four Seasons Resort Nevis.  Travellers catch their own lobster, and, after sunset cocktails, prepare it with the help of an expert chef.  Fresh from the ocean, perfectly cooked lobster is the centre of a spectacular beach barbecue celebration.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

Nigeria has the largest economy in Africa, at more than US$500 billion, and ranks 23rd in the world. A recent re-evaluation of Nigeria's true economic size doubled the previous estimate, and brought it well ahead of South Africa, which is a member (unlike Nigeria) of the G20 club for political as well as economic reasons. Nigeria's economy can be said to be quite diverse from one point of view, but heavily dependent on oil and gas at the same time. Oil and natural gas account for about 15% of Nigera's overall economy, but traditionally represent more than 90% of the country's exports and as...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Bagnulo, Solution Architect / Software Engineer at SOA Software, focused on desi...

Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices.

We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
