Rock Spa, Hard Rock Riviera Maya
Hard Rock resorts offer a unique concept to guests looking for an all inclusive resort experience with a difference. Music is, of course, the central theme around the resort bars, lounges and restaurants and the Rock Spa is no exception. Memorabilia from the likes of Madonna adorn the walls amidst art installations made of musical instruments including a hanging fountain styled from organ pipes.

The spacious resort creates an impressive ambience via the roof gardens, art sculptures, courtyards, ‘water mirror’ reflection pools and large swimming pools. Sitting in many of the fine-dining, restaurant options affords you with a view of the ocean where you can watch for whales if you’re there at the right time of year.
Montage Los Cabos
Montage Los Cabos is one of the newest luxury resorts to enter the region; having opened its doors late summer 2018. Nestled between stunning cliffs that encircle Santa Maria Bay, the beach at Montage boasts clear and calm waters, perfect for swimming and snorkeling. Located on the corridor between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, it’s well positioned for guests to visit either of these destination towns during their stay.
Spa Review: Fairmont Mayakoba, Riviera Maya, Mexico
The Fairmont Mayakoba, situated in the Riviera Maya is home to the Willow Stream Spa, the in house brand of the iconic Fairmont hotel chain that looks to nature for inspiration, energy and balance. Catering to families, couples and business travellers the hotel is often the location of choice for exclusive events, including the Live Love Spa Mexico event held in August for the last two years running. I was recently invited to enjoy an afternoon at the spa with a friend.
Spa Review: W Mexico City
Located in the exclusive neighborhood of Polanco, W Mexico City, famous for its urban and avant-garde style, is the place where DJs, designers and renowned artists regularly present their work. Its eclectic style is visible from the crystalline facade accompanied by its colorful murals on gray concrete walls.
Spa Review: Jamaica Inn
As you arrive at the renowned Jamaica Inn, you are immediately welcomed ‘home’. Whether you are a returning guest or a first time visitor, the staff invite you to feel comfortable in your surroundings, and go out of their way to ensure you do just that during your stay.
The timelessly elegant Jamaica Inn has been in operation since 1950 and has welcomed royalty, politicians and celebrities alike, who enjoy the intimacy and privacy the resort provides. The 48 suites and cottages, decorated and painted in crisp white and Wedgewood blue encircle a small, secluded bay on the outskirts of Ocho Rios (‘Ochy’ to the locals). Each suite is afforded spectacular views of the turquoise blue Caribbean Sea.
