Hi Friends:

Yes, come away with me! Well, virtually, at least.

Okay, so everyone close to me probably already knows that I prefer winter over summer {yes, a bit crazy…I know} but the extreme low temperatures in NYC right now are unacceptable! Anything under 30 degrees shouldn’t be allowed. Who’s with me? So in the midst of the freezing temps, I have decided to write about my travel aspirations. Ahhhh travel-it makes me so happy! 🙂

Unfortunately, I won’t be traveling until late April so for now all I do is daydream about beautiful resorts far, far away.

So here are the top 5 dreamy hotels I am currently obsessing over. Enjoy!!

 

1. Belmond Hotel Caruso

Hotel-Caruso-3

Where: Amalfi Coast, Italy. This five star 11th century hotel is perched up on the cliff town of Ravello {one of the most beautiful areas of the Amalfi Coast…and a personal favorite of mine :)}

Why should it be on your list: Umm no need to really answer this. Are you looking at the photo? Okay, yeah, so you get it. 🙂

Why should it be on your list: This modern Thai inspired resort boasts the biggest pool in the country and tree-top spa treatments {yup…pretty crazy}. Your stay will come with a dedicated butler and a ton of other amenities.

3. Esperanza Resort

Where: Esperanza is located in the very tip of the Baja Peninsula, a couple of miles from Cabo San Lucas.

Why should it be on your list: The beautiful infinity pool overlooks the pacific ocean..need I say more?  This resort is also very secluded so it would be a the perfect romantic retreat from the real worries of the world.

5. Seychelles Four Seasons

Where: The Seychelles is a nation of 115 islands scattered over 400,000sq km of Indian Ocean-off the coast of SouthEast Africa.

Why: This little piece of paradise is known for it’s luxury resorts but also for it’s lush surroundings and ecotourism. The island also offers amazing diving {this wouldn’t matter to me considering I don’t know how to swim…awful, I know}.
