Where in the World to Go This Summer

Got plans to travel this summer? If you want to go somewhere either this year or plan in advance for 2012, these hotels are some of the hottest picks out there for the traveling set. Have yourself a browse and know that every one on this list allows exclusive perks for the plucking via

Lizard Island

Lizard Island is a particularly special location, a limited-access island retreat that's set like a shimmering jewel along a marvelous sea. Beautiful and completely in its element, Lizard Island doesn't take from the environment without giving back. Private villas and suites sit on powdery white sand and look like they've sprouted right up out of the beach. There's a two-night minimum stay, but that's a cinch once you step foot on the island. No matter how many nights you've booked, you'll want to stay longer.

The Farm at Cape Kidnappers

Staying on an amazing 6,000 acres is an experience of a lifetime in itself, and The Farm at Cape Kidnappers makes the experience even sweeter with luxury lodge buildings. The accommodations feature a large-scale gym, a wine tasting room, and a fantastic golf course, and if you have a romantic getaway or holiday planned, then you'll be ecstatic about your stay at Cape Kidnappers.

Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua

Rolling hills and a beachfront location make the Ritz Carlton, Kapalua, a special place. The resort is located on a century-old pineapple plantation, and it gives you a chance to experience the feeling of unspoiled Hawaii prior to development. The Ritz-Carlton actually benefited from a shocking $180 million renovation. This hotel has been called the “quintessential Hawaiian vacation,” and you have to see it to believe it.

Hotel das Catarafas

This is the only hotel located in the Iguassu National Park, and it'll get you right into the depth of the forest. 275 waterfalls make up Iguassu Falls and are breathtaking on their own—why travel far to see them? Make a master list of activities to check out, like rafting, helicopter flights, nature walks, and jeep safaris.

One and Only Palmilla

Soft-sand beaches and a hidden cove make the One and Only Palmilla a special spot. Several top restaurants are available for your perusal, and you can book an appointment for a Hummer-driven tour along the lush coasts. A 700+ wine cellar is excellent to explore and compliment fine foods enjoyed at the One and Only Palmilla. Los Cabos is a treat for the eyes at any time of the year, and it's only eclipsed by the views of the towering Sierra Nevada.

St. Regis Resort Punta Mita

This experience is completely unique from the second you set foot on the grounds of the St. Regis Resort Punta Mita. Sprawling over 22 acres of land, the St. Regis Resort lies only 50 minutes from the Puerta Vallarta International Airport, despite its tucked-away feel. Elegant and exquisitely appointed, the St. Regis Resort Punta Mita is a lovely spot to enjoy to the fullest.
