Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."Biras Creek sits on 140 the hilly and secluded acres on the eastern tip of Virgin Gorda. Guests arrive by boat, helicopter, or ferry from Beef Island Airport, and are whisked off in a golf cart to one of the cottage suites—most of which has an outdoor shower and a pair of bicycles parked at the entryway. A short stroll past a salt-pond bird sanctuary is Deep Bay, where you’ll find a trove of catamarans, wind-surfers, and kayaks for guests to use. To truly escape, untie one and cruise along the scrubby coastline until you spy the perfect cove to call your own for the day." ~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."Set on a 140-acre peninsula, this stone resort is accessible only by boat or helicopter, and “it gets a lot of honeymooners.” Rooms with private garden showers have a white-and-turquoise color scheme, Caribbean artwork, and verandas with sea views. Splurge on the master suite, which has “a plunge pool, a great living room, and two decks right on the ocean.” The candlelit dinner at Hilltop comes with “a fabulous view” of the North Sound—“the food is outstanding, but you have to climb to the top of the resort to get it.” The signature Island Cooler treatment at the spa incorporates a salt scrub, just-picked aloe, and a body wrap and massage. “I pray that I get a chance to return someday.” ~From CondeNastTraveler.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."Signature dish:Green-apple-and-bacon-stuffed jerk pork chop with parsley potatoes and island rum sauce. Don't miss: A snorkeling trip with Captain Wayne. Catch a spiny lobster and the resort will cook it for you. (Four-course set menu, $85; snorkeling trip free for guests.)" ~From cntraveler.com

Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."Open since 1999, the first luxury resort on the Punta Mita peninsula continues to enchant guests with its sweeping views (naturally, it claimed the peninsula's choicest spot when it opened) and pamper them with its famously perfect service. The hotel prides itself on fulfilling even the most unusual request—from sprinkling flower petals on a wedding reception from a helicopter to testing the purity of the ocean water for concerned swimmers (verdict: clean). Most visitors, though, will find lounging in their rooms to be pleasure enough: there are private casitas with plunge pools, oceanview suites set atop cliffs, and suites that open directly onto the white-sand beach. Those craving more indulgence can try the Apuane spa journey, which allows guests to choose five treatments that total 365 minutes. If you have the family in tow, a teen center and new kids activities were recently added." ~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."At this 1,500-acre "hidden oasis" north of Puerto Vallarta, "staff are out of this world—we had a server walk chest high into the ocean, in his uniform, to bring us our drinks. Enough said." Red-roof garden casitas are done in a sea and sand palette and have Mexican art and louvered doors. "I stood in the infinity pool and watched whales feeding in the ocean below—it was an out-of-body experience." At Pacifico, the 18-hole Jack Nicklaus course, one hole is on an island 200 yards offshore. Aramara's menu combines Latin and Asian flavors in dishes such as spicy Thai lobster." ~From CondeNastTraveler.com
