This month’s opening of Ventus at Marina El Cid Spa & Beach Resort Cancún Riviera Maya means this stretch of Mexican shoreline is no longer the sole province of spring breakers. With 290 luxury suites, each with a private balcony, the new all-inclusive property is located on the coast between Cancún and Playa del Carmen. Fernando Berdegué Sacristán, vice president of construction and new product development, and award-winning designers and architects Ezequiel Farca and Cristina Grappin led the design team.

The sophisticated décor and more than a dozen dining venues are augmented by bespoke spa therapies (and a signature scent) at El Cocay Spa, and plenty of nearby outdoor adventure opportunities such as exploring underwater caves and cenotes or climbing among Mayan ruins. The resort also offers 120 slips at the full-service marina. Onsite, guests can enjoy an expansive fitness center, adults-only pool with two Jacuzzis, kayaking, paddle boarding, boogie boarding, beach volleyball, Hobie Cat rides and windsurfing.

Singapore Forges Ahead with Investment in Bold Innovations

For all its cosmopolitan trappings, Singapore remains, at heart, a tropical island. The city planners determinedly preserved gennery and the high groves of concrete and glass, and for a complete escape from urban bustle there still remain patches of the jungle and mangroves that covered the island when Sir Stamford Raffles first established a trading outpost here in 1819.

Discover the Joys of Small-Ship Sailing

In this era of 6,500-passenger mega-ships, any cruise vessel conveying fewer than a thousand voyagers is considered a small ship, including high-end luxury liners, deluxe expedition ships and the world’s riverboats. The focus on many small ships is the destination rather than the conveyance, the expert chat rather than the Broadway show, the watersport rather than the casino, the scenery and culture rather than the full-service spa and specialty restaurant. Passengers make a travel style choice, forgoing the options and pleasures of a resort-sized vessel for the deeper, more immersive experience of a yacht-scaled ship.

Aloft Delray Beach Review

I arrived at Aloft Delray Beach pretty late in the evening after a COVID-friendly outdoor dinner reservation. However late it may have been, a lovely woman at the front desk greeted us as if she had been waiting for us all day. My sister and I walked around a bit before heading to our room, admiring the vibrant lobby decorated with neon signs and lights around a ready-to-play billiards table. On our way to the elevators we grabbed two water bottles from the lobby shop Re:Fuel, and the same woman from the front desk told us they were on her and we didn’t owe a thing.

Crane’s Beach House Review

After driving through the arts and entertainment district of Delray Beach, I was expecting the lively and vibrant energy to follow me to my doorstep at Crane’s Beach House that evening. I was pleasantly surprised when the spirited rumble of a night downtown halted right at the front gate. As I walked the pathway to the front office for check-in, I was welcomed by a quiet rustle of the greenery and flowers that guided my walk, strung with lights and colorful, tropical décor. At check-in I was provided with a complimentary parking pass; although I would only be there for one night, I much appreciated this unexpected perk. I received my room information, including a pass code that would open my door. Keyless entry was a nice touch.
