HULA ... TWO WAYS
Grab a hoop and twirl your way through a HulaFit class on the roof of the 210-room Berkeley in London. For a more traditional take on hula, turn up for complimentary lessons in the Hawaiian art form at the Big Island’s 258-room Mauna Kea Beach Hotel.

COOK BARBACOA-STYLE
Practice the ancient technique of barbacoa – cooking meat in an underground pit – during a hands-on lesson at Los Cabos, Mexico’s 83-suite Las Ventanas al ParaĆ­so. Afterward, sample your work during a family-style dinner.

SIP LIKE A SOMMELIER
At California’s 181-room Carmel Valley Ranch, sommelier Dave Eriksen directs a monthly winetasting series. The course includes at least six wines, along with Eriksen’s take on the characteristics of each pour.

MASTER MUY THAI
Take it to the (open-air, oceanfront) ring during a muay thai lesson at Six Senses Yao Noi, on an island off the coast of Phuket, Thailand. The private, hour-long martial arts session at the 56-villa resort boosts agility and speed.
