Five Hot Beach Hotels for 2015

These are my picks for the top five hot new beach hotels for 2015.

1. Condado Vanderbilt

Marabar-Condado Vanderbilt

What is not to love about a former grand dame of a hotel that has been lovingly and completely restored? Oh, and it’s super easy to get to from the Northeast. Did I mention no passport required? Perfect for long weekend getaways or week long vacations. A great location in San Juan for exploring or doing nothing at all.

2. Rosewood at Baha Mar


You know I love Rosewood. I also love that we have another new easy to get to property in the Caribbean that offers true luxury. Plus, a casino, duty free shopping, golf, and the creme de la creme room category – Beachfront Villas.

3. Four Seasons Manele Bay

Four Seasons Manele Bay

It is technically not a new hotel, but with the complete transformation of the room product, I feel it qualifies. Gorgeous new rooms. Nobu. A private complimentary airport lounge just for hotel guests. The best from the beach snorkeling out of all of the Hawaiian Four Seasons resorts. It’s Hawaii taken to a whole new level.

4. Mukul


Bored with the Mexico and Costa Rica? Looking for something exotic, yet close to home? Mukul is still new enough to qualify for the hot factor for 2015. Located on a gorgeous stretch of beach in Nicaragua this is the perfect place to find your inner surfer. Or perhaps you would rather soak away the afternoon in your private plunge pool on the patio of your Bohio. Whatever you choose, it is easy to slow down and soak up life on the Emerald Coast.

5. Ritz-Carlton Cancun

Rotz-Carlton Cancun Family Pool

Emerging refreshed from a multi-million dollar renovation, indulge in modern luxury on the hotel strip. A fun cooking school, an excellent spa, and all rooms with at least an ocean view make this hotel easy to love. Not to mention the breakfast buffet is one of the best in Mexico. Fifteen minutes from the airport and you are ready to hit the beach.

Of course, VIP treatments and extra amenities come standard at all of these hotels when you book through me. Give me a call at 508-485-3061 or send me an email. I look forward to seeing which one you choose!
