A few of my favorites hotels, destinations, ships
Because I'm a travel writer people always ask me to name my favorite hotels, ships, places and spas. So here it goes:
Warm weather climes:
French Polynesia, specifically Bora Bora with its azur colored water, white powdery sands and amazing food and joie de vivre.
St. Barths, specifically for its beaches, water, French flair and cuisine, and joie de vivre.
Zihuatanejo, Mexico, all of the above plus the best small luxury hotel in the country, Hotel Villa del Sol.
Hawaii, specifically Maui and Waikiki, beaches, water, plumeria-scented air, and the Halekulani Hotel on Oahu.
