I Love Banyan Tree Mayakoba

One of my favorite hotels in the world is the Banyan Tree Mayakoba, located in Riviera Maya, Mexico.  I stayed there last year and can’t wait to go back.

Each room is a private villa with its own pool and tons of private outdoor space. The beach is gorgeous and the food is great too. They have perfected the art of providing elegance and luxury, while making guests feel comfortable and relaxed. And each room has an outdoor bathtub!  LOVE!

They are extending their Sunny Retreat offer until December 22 – all rooms are 35% off best available rate and this includes breakfast daily (which is the most amazing buffet – you can eat a huge breakfast and not be hungry until dinner) and a 60 minute massage.

I am looking into flights now!

Baby in the Lap of Luxury

Just to go along with our traveling with kids theme…

Aside from being the Honeymoon Guru at Classic Travel, I also have an 11 month old son.  I took him to Italy last year and some hotels really rolled out the red carpet!

The JK Place Capri  treated him like a true VIP. When we got to our room there was a wee-sized robe and slippers waiting for him, along with a complete bath set and penguin washcloth puppet that he still insists on using. His crib even got nightly turn down service and a small stuffed animal was waiting for him at bedtime.  When we checked out, he got an “I stayed at the JK Place Capri” bib.

The best of all was that Lorenzo, the manager of the restaurant, took a shine to him and carried Xavier around, giving my husband and me free hands to gorge ourselves on the delicious breakfast or quickly throw back a glass of rose.

Sometimes it’s the little things that make all the difference!

Take the Kids to Thailand!

The Trisara in Phuket is luxury to the max!

Privacy is the key at this celebrity hot spot. All rooms are renovated every year, so never fear your room won’t be up to snuff.  And the best part for parents traveling with kids? The hotel provides (for a price of course) nannies who are trained by the local hospitals.

Don’t want to bring your nanny with you? The Trisara has the answer!
