Don’t hesitate – plan your holiday travel soon!

Posted in Just Booked, Mexico, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on June 22, 2012 by cheriforzani

I can’t believe it’s June already! Yes, it’s been a long, long time since I’ve updated, but the last 6 months I’ve been insanely busy doing what I love most – planning travel.

Procrastinators, if you’re thinking of getting away for the holidays, you best get going as many villas and resorts are already fully booked. I’ll start posting recommendations forgreat Holiday getaways that I’ve planned for my clients and that still have availability:

Azul Fives in the Riviera Maya

What do I love about Azul Fives?

1. Stylish and luxurious 1, 2 and 3 bedroom suites with complete kitchens, but since it’s all-inclusive, you don’t have to cook. These are perfect for groups and extended families.

2. Penthouse Suites with fabulous rooftop terraces complete with jacuzzi, BBQ, dining tables, sofas & lounge chairs that are perfect for a group celebratory dinner. Azul Fives will provide your own personal chef.

3. Azulito’s Kids club.

4. The food. In a word, fantastic at this Gourmet all-Inclusive with delicious fresh squeezed juices, smoothies and premium liquor.

5. Monkeys! I love watching the monkeys swinging from the trees outside your window, and so will the kids!

Esencia Estate – a luxury hotel that was once the estate of an Italian duchess – set on a mile-long powder white sand beach in the Riviera Maya is offering significant savings this fall.

Esencia is not a typical hotel, though it certainly offers the personal service and pampering facilities you’d expect at a refined world-class resort. It is not a condo, though it has the privacy, luxury and personal touches that you’d want in your own residence.

“…the residential vibe made me feel as though I were a house guest…”

~Luxury Spa Finder

Esencia is a 50-acre private estate, with an awe-inspiring beachfront, two swimming pools, day spa, gourmet restaurant, and an indulgent atmosphere fitting of royalty. In fact, the property and many of the buildings once served as the exclusive beach-side retreat of an actual Italian duchess. Though friendly, warm and generous, the duchess demands the very best and Esencia still benefits from her superior taste, her impeccable style and her zest for life

Plan your last minute getaway to the beautiful Riviera Maya before winter arrives. Take advantage of our advanced purchase rate of 50% off all rooms rack rate for travels from August 24 to October 31 2011.

Excellence Playa Mujeres

Posted in Mexico with tags , on May 20, 2011 by cheriforzani

I planned a trip for 4 couples last January and we were beyond satisfied with Excellence Playa Mujeres north of Cancun. We made an excellent choice. This resort is an adults only, all-inclusive resort on a 20-mile peninsula that feels wonderfully remote but is surprisingly accessible. This oasis of virgin beaches and lavishly appointed architecture exudes contemporary luxury.

This is the view from the lobby

First of all, none of the photos I’ve seen do the property justice. It’s much more beautiful and lush than I expected, especially the beach. There was a small amount of beach grass, but it was very minor and the maintenance staff kept the beach free of it. There were several days when we couldn’t even see any.

While the water was not that aqua blue, it was still a gorgeous greenish turquoise color and very clear. It was pretty spectacular, and being away from any other properties (save for La Amada), made up for it. We loved the fact that Excellence Playa Mujeres is in a secluded location, away from the congestion of the hotel zone. You can walk for miles along the beach in a very natural, unspoiled setting. I only hope it remains that way and that the developers enforce strict zoning requirements to keep the area as beautiful and natural as it is now.

I don’t want to be repetitive, but the rooms are spectacular and the employees are outstanding. They work so hard, are very friendly and will bend over backward to please. All of the waiters, hostesses, concierge’s, etc were phenomenal.

Our room had a private rooftop terrace complete with large whirlpool

The grounds are meticulously kept and lush.

Excellence Playa Mujeres is an absolutely gorgeous resort. If you want to relax and be catered to in a stunning setting, Excellence Playa Mujeres is the way to go.

We had an outstanding experience at this resort, so much so that I would go back in a heartbeat and I’m VERY excited to try their new resort that will be opening in Jamaica.
