Make the Most of A Last-Minute Beach Getaway

Have an endless summer whenever you want it.

Sun, surf and sand are the essentials of an idyllic beach vacation. Toss in poolside relaxation and an ocean outing or two, and you have the perfect recipe for a fun-filled family trip, a romantic vacation or a last-minute beach getaway. These escapes—one in Oahu and one in Riviera Maya—offer all the above, all year round.

Hilton Hawaiian Village® Waikiki Beach Resort, Oahu

Considered one of the most family-friendly hotels on Oahu, the Hilton Hawaiian Village® Waikiki Beach Resort is its own self-contained world. With six pools (including the longest water slide in Waikiki), more than 20 restaurants, an assortment of shopping options and 22 spectacular oceanfront acres along the widest strip of Waikiki Beach, you’ll never need to leave the property. Kids 17 and younger stay free, and the resort’s tranquil saltwater lagoon is ideal for little swimmers. The more intrepid can sign up for surfing lessons or rent a kayak and enjoy Waikiki’s famous waves. Snorkelers will love the Makani Catamaran tours, which include a stop at the Turtle Canyon reef, a playground for gentle sea creatures. For a taste of Hawaiian culture, the hotel is home to the Waikiki Starlight Luau, which features traditional island food, live music, fire dancers and hula lessons.

UNICO 20° 87°, Riviera Maya

An adults-only hideaway on the sun-kissed shores of Mexico’s Riviera Maya, the brand-new UNICO 20° 87° Riviera Maya hotel seduces with a sleek design, boutique experiences and top-notch cuisine you won’t find at a typical all-inclusive resort. Dial up the romance with a couples’ massage at the Esencia Wellness spa; an intimate candlelit dinner at the Italian eatery Mi Carisa, one of five restaurants on the property; or a moonlight sail around a lagoon. Try a culinary class taught by a renowned local chef, or learn to whip up specialty cocktails with the hotel’s expert mixologists. Bond over a memorable excursion, like swimming with dolphins, exploring ancient Mayan ruins or snorkeling in an underground river deep in the jungle. Want something not on the menu? Just ask the anfitrión, your round-the-clock host, who can tailor an experience to your tastes. Free Wi-Fi is included.

Customization is always my top priority when planning a client's vacation. I ask about their family and where they've been before. Their preferences guide our planning so the vacation is perfectly tailored for them.
