There are hotels, homes and then VILLAS !

Standard

We went to the Dominican Republic for spring break and decided to stay in a villa versus a traditional hotel for the week that we were there.

It was a great decision, we had a chef and also another couple friend that went with us and their son.

This is the place we stayed at. Direct flights with Jet Blue, short drive to the property.

We played the “festival of colors- Holi” while we were there. The kids loved it! These pictures make me want to go back!

Canyon Ranch spa – Miami

Standard

I was away for 3 nights to the Canyon Ranch Spa. I was a little hesitant at first, since Cayon Ranch usually caters to an older customer. It was a girls weekend away and we were excited by the plethora of activities!

This leading hotel of the world was in North Miami beach area. 20 m cab to downtown south Miami beach.

The minute we got there , 80 degree and a breeze hit us. It was heavenly.

Some of the classes we tried were barre method , rock climbing , battle ropes ( super hard ), boxers workout , Zumba , beach boot camp , just to name a few. ( they offer 40 classes a day !).
