Eat, Pray, Love Weekend Package at Sonesta Bayfront Hotel

Elizabeth Gilbert's best-selling novel, "Eat, Pray, Love," takes place in Indonesia, India, and Rome -- the respective settings for romantic, spiritual, and culinary revelations. The Sonesta Bayfront Hotel Coconut Grove and the new Paragon Grove 13 movie theater have teamed to present a weekend getaway coinciding with the film's release the weekend of August 13 to 15. The package starts at $199 per person and includes:

• Eat: On Friday the 13th, guests will watch the film in a private theater while indulging in an Italian "picnic dinner" with champagne or wine.

• Pray: Saturday brings a trip to the Dharma Studio for meditation and general wellness stuff, followed by an Indian dinner (menu below) at Sonesta's Panorama Restaurant.

Keep going for LOVE...

Love: Participants get to explore "the intimate corners" of Coconut

Grove by bike, foot, or sailing around Biscayne Bay (though bike or

sailing costs extra). Afterward, they'll partake in a freewheeling orgy in

the Sonesta swimming pool. Actually, I'm just making up that last part.

Quite frankly, the love tie-in of this program seems awfully tenuous.

To reserve, head this way and use code EPL08. Or call 1-800-SONESTA.
