We are on the horizon of summer season, which means one thing…summer vacation! If you’re looking for an exotic, brand new experience worth the money, here are 10 beautiful, luxurious vacation destinations.

Cheeca Lodge and Spa, Islamorada Key, Florida

With a perfect location between four bodies of water (Atlantic Ocean, Florida Bay, Gulf of Mexico and the Gulfstream,) the Cheeca Lodge has been a great destination for years. With a coral barrier reef – the only living one in North America – offshore with over 350 species of fish, you can get out and explore exotic life.

Paradise Beach, Nevis

Ever dreamed of visiting the Caribbean? This is the ideal beachfront villa with a private pool, butlers and chef service. You can also lie back and relax with a spa package designed just for you. If you want to add a little adventure to your trip, go offshore with a dive master to explore reefs with exotic creatures. Oh, and don’t forget those gorgeous Caribbean women in bikinis on the beach.

Nayara Hotel, Spa & Gardens, Costa Rica

Overlooking the picturesque landscape of Arenal Volcano National Park, the Nayara Hotel is one of the top resorts in the world. Every room has a view of the land with either a plunge pool or Jacuzzi. Horseback riding, white water rafting, and zip lining, are just a few of the other features this Costa Rican destination offers.

Canyon Ranch, Arizona

This all-inclusive health resort in Southern Arizona offers private chefs, personalized spas, and specialists to help you unwind with comfortable exercise plans and nutritional meals to allow you to forget about the outside world – even for a short while.

Mayakoba, Mexico

Just south of the border, this fantastic luxury resort offers three hotels and the second-largest coral reef in the world with plenty of new sights to discover. With surrounding mangrove forests and lagoons, you can bask in the beauty of a 1,000+ acre destination.

Sea Island, Georgia

When thinking of the state of Georgia, admittedly the first thing that comes to mind is definitely not luxurious beaches or lavish islands. But, with five miles of beaches, clay tennis courts, and professional-style golf courses, the sky is the limit at Sea Island. Don’t forget the bar and cigar lounges complete with poker and pool tables to help you wind down.

The Hermitage Club, Vermont

OK, so maybe beaches, ranches, or diving into the ocean isn’t exactly your brand of whiskey. If you’re looking for something a bit more, “north,” this is the most luxurious private ski club in North America. With a private air field, movie theater, bowling alley, and more in its 1,400 acre land, the club offers a variety of spectacles to keep you engaged. If skiing is your thing, take a heated, six-person bubble lift to the top of the mountain before exploring 45 trails.

Omni Mount Washington Resort, New Hampshire

Since 1902, this historic site has offered a unique retreat for years. If you’re looking for that spot to show off your golf game, look no further than the 27 holes at this Renaissance Revival style, vast resort. With a 30,000 square foot spa built in, there’s no shortage of relaxation possibilities following your golf outing or trail snaking.

Beaver Creek, Colorado

One of the most popular places for an entertaining and heart pumping rush is Beaver Creek’s ski resort, which opened in 1980. The private slope-side club features a fitness center, ski valet, and a pool, to help you relax after a day of skiing.

Snake River Sporting Club, Wyoming

For the rancher and fly fisher in you, visit this six-mile private club that offers horseback riding and championship golf courses.

Whether you prefer to relax on a beach and catch a tan, or get your blood pumping with the adrenaline rush of a ski resort, these 10 destinations will make you never want to go home!
