When did someone decide that by growing up, we could no longer participate in the same holiday activities we did as a child? This Easter, instead of letting children have all the fun, we think it’s time adults got in on the action. We searched the globe to find luxury hotel Easter egg hunts offering prizes ranging from free spa treatments to two-night, all-inclusive stays. Here are six properties offering grown-up hunts this April 5:

This five-star hotel situated on Sentosa Island in Singapore is one of our favorites. And for Easter, they are hosting an Egg-tivity Hunt to discover 1,000 eggs hidden around the property. Inside special ones, guests will find one of three grand prizes: a voucher for a one-night stay in a One-Bedroom Garden Villa, dinner for two at Cassia fine dining restaurant, and a 60-minute spa gift certificate at their five-star facility.
But if you’re not one of the lucky three to find those eggs, there are a few other prizes that are just as exciting. One winner will receive a voucher for Havana Nights at Bob’s Bar, a weekly Cuban barbeque with live music and handcrafted fresh-pressed Mojitos. Or they may find the Chocolate and Tea Experience at The Knolls experience inside their egg. The affair allows guests to sip on teas from gourmet purveyor Gryphon Tea Company while enjoying international desserts and Valrhona chocolates. Easter Brunch starts at 12:30 on April 5 and rates for adults range from $188-$288 per person, depending on if you prefer non-alcoholic beverages or free-flow Taittinger Champagne, wines and beer. Children ages 4-6 are $78+ which includes free flow soft drinks and fresh juices; reservations required.

Omni Barton Creek Resort & Spa in Austin, Texas is a hot spot for golfers.
