5 Warm-Weather Holiday Vacations
Five places you should book now for a fun holiday getaway.
5. Atlantis Paradise Island Resort
Best for: Families. The resort offers activities specifically for toddlers, kids, teens and (of course!) parents, so no one will be bored.
Don't miss: The marine exhibits. Winding throughout and even under the property is one of the world's largest collections of marine habitats and aquarium exhibits, encompassing lagoons, coral formations and underwater ruins.
4. Royal Davui Island Resort
Best for: Couples. This adults-only resort is dedicated to privacy, and with its small capacity for guests, there's plenty of secluded space for alone time with your partner.
Don't miss: Private dining. While the resort's restaurant always welcomes guests, it's possible to book a private meal in a hidden location on the island for optimum intimacy.
3. The Fairmont Kea Lani
Best for: Adventure lovers. Maui's magic is found outdoors. The island lays claim to multiple climate zones, from tropical to desert, offering adventure seekers a variety of activities.
Don't miss: A private helicopter tour of the island. A number of outfitters offer such tours, an unforgettable experience that takes you into seemingly impossible-to-reach nooks and crannies of Maui’s mountains and volcanoes.
Best for: Solo travelers. New Zealand is a backpacker's mecca, filled with hostels such as Nomads. With fun amenities including a cinema room, it puts singles in a position to meet like-minded travelers.
Don't miss: Fiordland National Park. Carved by glaciers and striped with teeming waterfalls, the park is home to Milford Sound and dramatic granite peaks. It's possible to explore the scenic fjords via kayak or on an eco-tour.
1. The Breakers
Best for: Luxury travelers. As one of the finest hotels in the country, it's no surprise that the Breakers' opulence comes with a price tag. Rooms and suites run from $399 to $6,150 per night.
Don't miss: Worth Avenue. If you can tear yourself from the comforts of the Breakers, drive 5 minutes to Worth Avenue, Palm Beach's ultra-luxe shopping street, which is filled with designer shops such as Cartier and Chanel.
