A sublime place to rekindle romance, One&Only Palmilla presides over one of the region’s few swimmable beaches. Indulge in a spa treatment in the privacy of a spa villa with an open-air garden, daybed, and rain shower, or enjoy a round on the signature Jack Nicklaus golf course. Looking for a bit more adventure? Go deep-sea fishing, snorkeling, or diving, all of which can be arranged directly with the resort. Ask for a room with a private plunge pool and watch the ocean from your balcony’s daybed. The best part: One&Only Palmilla has a special weekend-long celebration for Labor Day beginning with a pop-up pool party, beachside Tiki bar, mixology events, a modern Mexican Mercado, and complete with many special dinners and culinary events.
Your family will always remember a visit to Relais & Chateaux’s coastal New England escape Ocean House, a boutique luxury hotel located in Watch Hill, Rhode Island. While the kids are enjoying the hotel’s Sand Castles children’s program, which provides morning and evening programs filled with fun and exciting activities, parents can rejuvenate with an organic, seasonally inspired treatment at the OH! Spa. Get the whole family together for a game of croquet on the lawn or a day relaxing on the private white-sand beach with dedicated cabana service.
Located just outside Telluride, Dunton Hot Springs is a small and exclusive resort nestled deep in the San Juan Mountains. The 13 rustic log cabins are all unique and surprisingly luxe, with heated slate floors and handpicked antiques; guests in the Well House enjoy their own hot springs. With activities ranging from water sports to fly-fishing along a private stretch of the Dolores to a trail ride into the Rockies, your kids will never be bored at Dunton Hot Springs. The fact that Dunton Hot Springs is a restored 19th-century ghost town set in an extraordinary alpine valley lends the resort an air of intrigue that can impress both youngsters and teenagers alike!
Four Seasons Resort Whistler
On Canada’s breathtaking west coast, Four Seasons Resort Whistler is a phenomenal year-round getaway for families. Fill your days with championship golf, northern-rainforest adventures, or relax by the pool soaking in the superb views of the mountains, forest, and valley.
