Planning events can be hard, we know. Let us take some of the stress out of it for you.
Here, we’re rounding up 6 of our favorite celebration-worthy resorts for every occasion in your life. RSVPs, guaranteed.
The Shade Hotel in Redondo Beach is an ace choice for the laid-back bride. Cool and quintessentially Californian, this luxury boutique hotel has a rooftop pool that overlooks the marina and is steps away from the famous bicycle strand. For your party, we recommend you book a cabana, which seats up to 6 and starts at just $100. A pro tip from Laura B., who recently visited on a bachelorette: “Pool staff are constantly replacing extra towels and clearing food/trash and were more than happy to oblige in helping us get some group photos.” Say cheese.
Family Day Out
When your kids ask, “what should we do this weekend?”, you’ll have the answer. Big thrills await at Tidal Cove, an upscale water park in Aventura, Florida. Your Day Passes include access to a boatload of water slides, a lazy river, water coaster, kids cove and FlowRider surfing experience. Plus, drinks for mom and dad from Surf House Bar & Grill. Cheers to that.
It really doesn’t get more colorful and fun than The Saguaro Scottsdale. Spend your birthday bouncing between two outdoor pools, playing ping pong, corn hole, and drinking ice cold margaritas. Cabanas start at $200 and squeeze up to 8. If you’re in California, we also recommend The Saguaro Scottsdale’s sister resort, The Saguaro Palm Springs. Same vibe, just a little more west.
When you really want to pull out all the stops, plan to spend a day at Grand Hyatt Kauai. Set right on the sand, this award-winning Hawaiian property comes complete with a lava-rock-lined lazy river pool with waterfalls, caves, a 150-foot waterslide, plus a quiet adults-only pool, saltwater lagoon and 3 jacuzzis. If that’s not enough for you guys, book a Spa Pass for access to an outdoor lap pool, open air lava rock showers, steam room, relaxation lounge and more. Talk about romantic.
Work From Pool Day
Let’s face it, working from the office is overrated. But finding a quiet, relaxing place for your team to actually get work done can sometimes be challenging. Enter the Kimpton Hotel Van Zandt in Austin, Texas. The design is refined, the pool chairs are comfortable and the views of Lady Bird Lake are sure to inspire your next big “aha!” moment. Day Passes start at $25, which should make it easy to write off without telling your boss.
You guys really owe it to yourselves to relax. There’s no better place to reset than Estancia La Jolla Resort & Spa, a boutique luxury hotel with first-class amenities and an award-winning spa. Sip on delicious drinks in the saltwater pool and jacuzzi, or unwind in the eucalyptus steam room and relaxation areas. After spending a day drenched in sunshine, you’re sure to be back to your best selves.
