Our travel bug has been itching like crazy these past few weeks – and it seems to be a common ailment amongst a lot of our peers as January comes to an end. We know we’re still in store for a few more months of winter and we just can’t help wanting to escape for a little bit – just a week, or two! Here are some beautiful international resorts that are waiting for us, margaritas and beach towels included!
We don’t think we need to give a description of any of these beautiful resorts – the pictures and their websites can do all the enticing on their own! The climate on this beautiful island is perfect all year-round, and the view is beautiful always. Isn’t that all you need in a vacation? Beautiful views and great weather?! The Mandarin Oriental is basically a tropical paradise with miles of gorgeous beaches and mountains. There are also plenty of restaurants in the vicinity that will cater to your every need.
Rent a room or a villa at the Viceroy in Anguilla, a British island tucked into the Northern Caribbean. There’s lots to do and see at the Viceroy; amenities include the saltwater infinity pool on the bluff overlooking the sea and awesome scuba diving and snorkeling expeditions. There’s also a spa that features both individual and couple’s treatment rooms or you can have the spa come straight to your hotel room! Take a virtual tour – but you’ve been warned: you’ll want to book your next vacation here within minutes!
If you’ve ever dreamt of paradise, we bet it looks just like the St. Regis Bora Bora Resort! There are 44 acres of beautiful beaches, and the perfect little villas right on the water. The villas are designed in exotic woods and marbles, and there is 95% chance that you will never want to come back home. Some of the villas even feature their own private pool! There are several five star restaurants on the resort, as well as a spa and other amenities.
Yes, you’re not mistaken – there IS a beautiful resort right in the United States! It’s been voted the #2 World’s Best Destination Spa by Travel + Leisure in 2014. It is the perfect spa retreat and a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of real life. There are customized, all-inclusive packages that cater to exactly what you want in a spa package. Some of the services offered include facials, milk and honey baths, a Sedona clay wrap, massages and so many more!
