Monopoli, Italy, Hotel Don Ferrante If you want a taste of what Capri and St Tropez were like in the 1950s, Monopoli is the spot. This 10-bedroom townhouse was originally a fortress, carved into the ancient defensive walls that surround the town. Don Ferrante comes as a surprise to even the most seasoned Italophile, its discreet front door opening reveals a maze of narrow stone steps and corridors all leading to the same Adriatic panorama!
Old Road, Antigua & Barbuda, Curtain Bluff - All Inclusive Looking over the south-facing Surf Beach, where the waves lap against golden sand is this amazing hotel.

At this sunny resort, your needs are met, from morning workouts in the sand to chilling in the perfect hammock!
Tulum, Mexico, Zamas Hotel The resort's palm frond-topped cabañas are scattered across two acres of coconut groves, which line a white powder beach. This sounds like heaven! It’s also the perfect spot to explore the Riviera Maya’s waters and they have a dive shop onsite for your diving supplies.
