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.

In this power panel at @...
