Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen Resort: luxury resort in the heart of the city  

Architect Javier Sordo Madaleno has combined contemporary architecture with Mayan heritage, to create an impressive resort: 314 rooms & suites with floor-to-ceiling windows open on to a balcony,  complete with a sea view and lounger. Rich walnut wood, with a turquoise and sand palette continue from the lobby to bring beach chic to the rooms, blending mod cons with tranquil design.
Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen Resort features two on-site restaurants, each with an impressive show kitchen: La Cocina offers authentic, family-style Mexican and Caribbean fare, while the resort’s signature ocean view restaurant, The Grill at 1-26 features a diverse selection of fresh seafood and prime steaks. Bakery & pastries are another unforgettable culinary must, breakfast must be slow in the resort!
My absolute must at Grand Hyatt Playa del Carmen Resort is the 6,000 square-foot Cenote Spa with its unique design and cultural local offerings. Iconic geological features known for their deep blue crystalline appearance, cenotes are freshwater sinkholes sacred to the Mayans: The Cenote relaxing area is a haven for meditation -my suggestion do not miss the 9am yoga classes in this unique place-.

To fly to Cancún I enjoyed the new Business Class of Iberia: A flat seat to sleep like a baby & a superb service


And once in Mexico City, I enjoyed the new stylish Salón Premier of Aeromexico & flew further to Cancún with Aeromexico. Link here to see my video

Six Senses Con Dao, paradise on an untouched Vietnam archipielago

To arrive to Six Senses Con Dao, you need to take a 40 minutes flight from Ho Chi Minh to Con Son Airport -all can be easily arranged by the resort-. Comprising 50 contemporary stand-alone villas, with either one or two floors, all of them with their own infinity pool and views of the beach. Outdoor showers, terrace and just steps from the resort's expansive private beach, just perfect.
Child-friendly activities include a daily program of age-appropriate themed activities with a focus on discovery, education, local culture, nature, sports, arts and crafts under the supervised care of expert counselors.
My suggestion: rent a motorbike & discover the main village in Con Son, its market, its tiny local seafood restaurants, the delicious street food, or the beautiful untouched beaches.
The award-winning Six Senses Spa offers yoga and meditation classes, and tailored spa massages. Another must in the resort
In Six Senses Con Dao they prepare home made ice creams, and guests can order as much as they want for free, such a great idea!

To arrive to Vietnam I flew with SilkAir, entering via Danang & flying back from Ho Chi Minh with Singapore Airlines.
