Quintana Roo, Mexico
Just 45 minutes from the party scene of Cancun, the Zen-like Banyan Tree Mayakoba makes travelers feel like they’ve stepped into another world. Each of the resort’s 107 villas is the size of a house (think 3,000 square feet and up), and features a private pagoda, outdoor bath, hot tub and pool. Just don’t get so comfortable that you forget to leave your room for a visit to the resort’s spa, where all treatments begin with a relaxing footbath and end with an herbal drink.
