Golden Getaways: Spring Break 2022

Updated: Feb 9

January has flown by, and I'm counting down the days to Spring. Now is the time to plan your spring break getaway if you haven't already. Beware: flights are filling up fast so get those tickets soon. Personally, I like to switch up this famed annual trip. Sometimes I'm in the mood to hit the slopes for some sunny spring skiing. However, I know many travelers are seeking out warm-weather destinations with sandy beaches. I think I've rounded up some fantastic spots to hopefully inspire your spring travels next month...let's go!


Isla Bella beachfront resort, Marathon, Florida

 

Island in The Sun

Isla Bella Beach Resort


Voted as a Top 10 resort in Florida last year by Travel and Leisure Magazine, this oh-so-chic property is situated in the heart of the Florida Keys...and I am totally drooling all over it! Marathon isn't the most lively community, so make sure to bring your posse along (unless you're looking for a quiet and romantic getaway).



What I Love About It:

  • Location: 1-hour from Key West (makes for a fun day trip and airport option)

  • One mile of waterfront with 5 oceanfront pools

  • Beautiful outdoor areas and adorable restaurant

  • Sandy beach (hard to find in the Keys)

  • Water sport activities on-site, great area for boating and snorkeling!



 

Top-Notch in Telluride

Madeline Hotel


Last winter, ski-in, ski-out resort Madeline (Auberge Resorts Collection) reopened after an extensive renovation. Adorned in soothing creams, caramels, woods and marbles, it exudes a clean-yet-cozy modern mountain vibe. If Telluride isn't on your Bucket List yet...add it!


What I Love About It:

  • Location, location: Step out onto the slopes located right outside your door

  • Hip events: Free People is hosting a pop-up at the hotel all year with their new ski gear line

  • Next level après-ski: Enjoy a whiskey cocktail and a baked potato topped with crème fraîche caviar at their watering hole, Timber Room.

  • Telluride ski resort is very high-end and exlusive...which is why it's on the top of every skiers list.

  • Being hard to get to makes Telluride a special place to visit.



 

Blue Skies, White Powder

The Lodge at Blue Sky


The Lodge at Blue Sky, also under the luxe Auberge umbrella, in Wanship, Utah, is only around 20 minutes from world-class ski resorts Park City Mountain and Deer Valley. Yet, it somehow feels remote: set upon 3,500 acres (which, during the winter, attract thousands of migrating elk) and surrounded by the Wasatch mountains, this secluded oasis operates like its own universe.


What I Love About It:

  • Private, modern cabins: five freestanding, one-room oxidized-steel Creek Houses are laid out just a two-minute walk down from the Sky Lodge.

  • Multiple ski resort options with comfortable transportation included.

  • There’s plenty of cold-weather activities on site, like snow shoeing, cross-country skiing, alpine dining in a yurt, and horse-drawn sleigh rides.

  • Extra luxury touches: Located at the base of the Silver Star chairlift at Park City Mountain Resort, the Blue Sky Ski Lounge is your private slope-side sanctuary.

  • Heli-Skiing: The hotel operates its own heli-ski program (whoa!), giving guests exclusive access to three private ski zones in the Uinta and Wasatch Mountain ranges.



 

Las Ventanas In Luxury

Las Ventanas al Paraiso



As I have researched many places to go in Mexico, this Rosewood Resort exudes the most luxury by far. Perfect for children, yet designed for adults, the pool provides picturesque views of the sea and a refreshing swim-up bar. A resident DJ catalyzes the poolside scene and underwater speakers ensure the spell is cast for both sunbathers above and swimmers below. I couldn't imagine a more breath-taking destination; Rosewood has done it for me again.


What I Love About It:

  • Mexico seems to be one of the easiest countries to travel to at the moment. Cabo has personally felt like one of the safest places to stay.

  • There's a BEACH! Only few Cabo resorts I've reseached have had beach access...especially as lovely as this one.

  • The hotel was completely redone after a hurricane in 2014.

  • You’ll really feel like you’re on a tropical getaway at their spa's open-air treatment space underneath a palapa, amid local desert flora and fauna.

  • Nothing compares to the service of a Rosewood Resort (hence the steep pricing)

  • No request is too large or too small, as evidenced by the resort’s “director of romance,” who aids in creating private on-the-beach dining experiences for two, oceanfront, or over-the-top anniversary celebrations.



Happy Spring Break planning!
