Loews Ventana Canyon invites couples to get frisky among the flora and fauna with the new Birds and the Bees package

Nature-inspired getaway features chef-prepared picnic and $100 spa or restaurant credit

TUCSON, Ariz. (February 18, 2014) – As the birds start chirping and bees start buzzing with the return of springtime in the desert, Loews Ventana Canyon invites couples to escape to nature and rekindle that twitterpated feeling with the Birds and the Bees package.

With rates starting as low as $225 per night, the package includes a two-night stay in a luxurious room with sweeping views, a romantic in-room amenity upon arrival, a gourmet picnic lunch for two prepared by the resort’s chefs to take along on a romantic hike or other nature-inspired outing, plus $100 to be used for a day of bliss at the resort’s Lakeside Spa or for sharing a delicious meal at Flying V Bar & Grill, any of the resort’s dining outlets or through room service.

“Spring is one of the best and most romantic times to visit the desert,” said Brian Johnson, managing director of Loews Ventana Canyon. “The flowers are blooming, the wildlife is waking up, and the weather is perfect for soaking up the natural beauty of Tucson.” He added, “This package is our way of spicing up spring fever with a little wink and nod to what the season is really all about.”

Recently named one of the “Top 9 hotels for nature lovers” by Sunset Magazine, the resort’s 100 acres of Sonoran desert features an 80-foot natural waterfall, half-mile Window Walk nature trail, koi pond, butterfly garden, desert tortoise exhibit and easy access to several miles of hiking.

The Birds and the Bees package can be booked through May 1 (subject to availability). To learn more about this package or to make a reservation, call 1-800-234-5117 or visit the website at http://www.loewshotels.com/en/Ventana-Canyon-Resort/specials/hotelspecials/birds.
