Arrival/Check-In: For a girls’ trip with my mom and sister, we decided on Cabo San Lucas to get some fresh air and margaritas. We booked a three-night stay at Live Aqua Private Residence, which sits on the same property as the Grand Fiesta Americana Golf Resort & Spa, but farther up on the hill, and comes with more personal services and privacy to add some exclusivity. The concierge helped arrange a car service for pick-up at the airport, something I highly recommend for any traveler coming to Mexico, and it took us straight to the Live Aqua Residence lobby, where we were greeted with fresh chilled hand towels and margaritas while we checked in. After, we hopped onto a golf cart and were whisked away to our villa.

Guest Quarters: The villas sit apart from the main residence area giving you a tranquil walk among the stone-paved walkway filled with fresh flowers. Our villa had two bedrooms, perfect for any family or group trip but still offering the quiet ambience you need. A solid oak door opened into a white-marbled entryway, and right away I noticed the eclectic art on the walls, providing a pop of color. I immediately walked into the full-service kitchen, modern with a large marble island. A fully stocked fridge held sodas, waters, beers and top-shelf liquors, restocked daily and part of the all-inclusive package. We enjoyed ordering room service and eating at the large dining table, roomy enough for six.

The living room included a sectional sofa with a flat-screen TV; I set up my Netflix account with help from the staff so I could watch anything I pleased during my stay. Natural light flooded in through the floor-to-ceiling glass doors that fully opened to a patio/lounge area and private residents’ pool. The main bedroom boasted a king-sized canopy bed and open-concept bathroom with a dual-sink vanity, walk-in closet, spa tub and a separate stone waterfall shower. The guest room with its high ceilings, large windows and even bigger closet housed two queen-sized beds, more than comfortable for relaxing adults.

Services/Amenities: The best part of Live Aqua Private Residence is the personal touch service with your own private pool shared with just a few other residences; there are always lounge chairs available and exceptional poolside service. We spent most of our time at the pool drinking margaritas and enjoying the best chips and guacamole I’ve ever had. The Mai restaurant is also just for Live Aqua guests and open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with unique dishes. It will make anything upon request. The Sky Bar sits atop the main lobby with views of the Pacific Ocean and endless night sky, with fireplaces and couches for sitting to enjoy an evening cocktail.

Guests looking for different kinds of dishes have full access to the restaurants at the Grand Fiesta Americana as part of the all-inclusive stay; it’s just a three-minute golf cart ride down the hill. We enjoyed sushi and Italian nights, and I highly recommend the Peninsula Grill that sits along the beach with breathtaking views of the waves crashing on the rocks.

The Somme Wine Spa is wine-inspired, and I enjoyed a Sauvignon Blanc oil-infused Swedish massage to cap off my trip.

TOP TAKEAWAYS:

◆ The one-on-one service residence guests enjoy from the concierge and staff is top-notch and rivals any 5-star property I’ve been to.

◆ The Mai restaurant boasts the best guacamole and elevated Mexican dishes for all to enjoy.

◆ Rock outcroppings surrounding the Grand Fiesta Americana and Live Aqua residences property provide guests with their own private beach.

Airlines Elevate the Premium Travel Experience in the Air and on the Ground

Airplane travel evokes a lot of emotions these days: excitement, anticipation, uncertainty and nervousness, just to name a few. But when you do take to the skies again, the giddiness of getting pampered at 35,000 feet can most certainly wash away the surrealness of the past year and a half — at least for the duration of a long- haul flight — as you sip Champagne and slip your feet into plush slippers. While some global airlines have paused or pushed back plans for upgrades and refreshes to their premium cabins, others have introduced exciting changes that await in your pod or lie-flat bed in first and business classes. What’s more, amenities like privacy screens, sliding suite doors and space to spread out all serve a dual purpose as methods to luxuriate in the air while keeping social distance. Here are some nice- ties to expect now and in the near future, from retrofitted seat configurations to updated décor to Michelin-starred meals:
