Ken Follettt

Situated just to the northeast of Antigua is a small 300-acre island called Jumby Bay, where best-selling author Ken Follett keeps a vacation home called Bananaquit. Follett first visited the coral reef in 1998; he loved it so much he returned 10 years later intent on buying land. 960 1280

As the family unit continues to grow, however, it is proving more difficult to get everyone to the West Indies at the same time. Thus, Follett made the difficult decision to sell the 8-bedroom Caribbean home. It is currently listed for a cool $25 million clams. 960 1280

Villa San Michele, Florence, Italy

Five miles up the hillside is Villa San Michele. The former Franciscan monastery was founded in the 15th century -- and experts think the hotel's stucco facade was designed by Michelangelo.

Hungry for more? In addition to having one of the best gardens in all of Florence, it also hosts a school where you get hands-on lessons in classic Tuscan cooking.

The Taha'a, Taha'a, French Polynesia

Le Taha'a Island Resort has 48 stilted bungalows, each with private access to the lagoon. About 100 feet below the spa, the lagoon showcases abundant marine life in crystal clear 80-degree waters.

Enchanting scent: One of the most magical things about this resort is how it smells -- like vanilla. About 75% of all Polynesian vanilla comes from this island. And the resort uses it at its 3 restaurants and spa.

Hotel Habita, Mexico City

Hotel Habita, Mexico City

Hidden in Mexico City's fashionable Polanco District, Hotel Habita is a hideaway from the chaotic city. Formerly apartments, the 7-story modern hotel has 36 rooms decorated in a very minimal style and an uber modern pool.

Don't forget to eat: Most of the food at Habita is contemporary European, but the real star is the sushi. Order the avocado wrap with Asian-inspired spaghetti, but it's definitely too big for chopsticks.
