3. Montage Kapula Bay in Maui, HI  With 24 acres of tropical paradise, you will be completely immersed in true harmony with the island culture and hospitality of Kapula Bay. The spa uses the finest local ingredients to provide you with a highly personalized and tranquil environment. You can lounge by the sunset pool, embark on a paddle boarding excursion, or go explore the island on a nature hike. We recommend you take a helicopter ride and tour some of the local farms on the slopes of Haleakala. There’s no better way to experience culture than through your stomach, and Montage has the finest locally-sourced ingredients and distinguished restaurants to provide a comprehensive tour of modern Hawaiian cuisine. There’s even specialized programs like tide-pool exploration and sea turtle watching for your little ones if you’d like to include the whole family.

4. Le Barthélemy Hotel & Spa in St. Bart’s

Le Barthelemy Hotel & Spa is widely regarded as the one of the top resorts in the world. It’s rated #1 in the Carribean by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler and for good reason. There’s world class massages and spa treatments with a sauna, steam room, and vitality pools at your leisure. There’s an endless list of ocean activities like sailing, snorkeling, scuba diving, kite surfing, and boat excursions that leave directly from the hotel by the lagoon. When you get hungry there’s a myriad of restaurants to try featuring French, Mediterranean, and local cuisine. We recommend Tamarin, a French-Caribbean gem built around a 100-year-old tamarind tree. You can enjoy your meal nestled amongst a charming garden of tropical flora. The villas have up to 6 bedrooms with a fully equipped kitchen, 55-foot pool, wine cellar, and direct access to the beach.
