The Ritz-Carlton Cancun

For the past few years, Cancun has been one of my favorite destinations to visit. Although I can think of a variety of different places that I have visited (or dream of visiting) that are beautiful and rich in history, I can’t help but appreciate how convenient Cancun is from Nova Scotia.

With periodic direct flights or quick layovers in Toronto/Montreal, Cancun can be reached in just a few short hours …if all goes to plan.  Personally, I don’t always have the availability to take week long trips … but in reality rest and relaxation is still needed. If you are anything like me and you solely require a few days to recharge, then Cancun is for you! read more

Belmond Maroma Resort and Spa

There is nothing I like more than a holiday in the sun. There is something about heading down south after a busy couple of months that keeps me focused all year round. Although I have a long list of favorite sunny destinations, Mexico is one that continues to top the list. I am not sure if it is the easy access to flights or that it is almost guaranteed to have beautiful weather, it always feels like the best decision!

When searching online for the perfect first stop of our travels, Belmond Maroma Resort and Spa immediately caught my eye. This luxury Riviera Maya resort had every amenity you could think of but still had a sense of intimacy and uniqueness.  On top of that, it is part of the Belmond brand ….. which is always an experience that never disappoints! read more

Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale

I’ll admit, I do have an intense appreciation for the desert but it is more than the abundance of cacti and sand color hues that have me coming back to Scottsdale every year. In fact, it’s neither of those things…but instead the luxe resort options…..and the Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North is one of those gems I’m referring to! read more
