Vacations full of sightseeing and bar crawling and city hopping are great, but sometimes you want to check the hell out of reality and laze around a cabana for a week. Maybe instead of hustling through the Louvre, you’d rather spend your time off around pool decks and massage tables. Throw out the ambitious agenda, embrace the inner lazy, and give one of these resorts a try. We swear none of them are Sandals.
Didn’t make it to noma in Tulum? Make it up to yourself and book a stay at Rosewood Mayakoba in Riviera Maya. The eco-friendly resort on the Yucatán Peninsula brings together the beauty of the jungle, beach, and surrounding lagoons with its own culinary perks. The resort chefs work with nearby farmers to source local lobster, produce, and even salt. Learn everything you need to know about tequila with guided tastings paired with Mexican food.
