party of one
Sometimes, it’s fun to travel alone. In fact, many prefer to do just that. Your time’s your own: see what you want to see, go when you want to go. Here are a few ideas of where parties of one feel right at home.
Sense Beach House in Miami’s South Beach features just 18 rooms in a cozy beach house boutique property that provides a personalized experience from start to finish. Venture out to the action on South Beach’s Ocean Drive, or spend your time reading a book from the hotel’s collection at the tranquil Rooftop Oasis Pool. Either way, you’ll feel right at home…and you don’t even have to make the bed.
The 45 room all-suite boutique Angler’s Boutique Resort in Miami embraces the “home away from home” feel with private pool villas and multi-level suites, most with their own private entrances. Travel in comfort and style without breaking the bank, and enjoy the “All About Me” special rate: a 15% off discount and daily complimentary breakfast with a starting rate of $179 per night. The rate also offers an add-on package for $144 which includes a $30 restaurant credit, one in-room Swedish spa treatment and a 90-minute South Beach culinary walking tour.
When you stay at the Jupiter Beach Resort & Spa, you’ll feel like you’re in Tommy Bahama’s summer home with its boutique personality. Grab a hammock near the pool, go bar hopping at the local’s favorite Square Grouper or Guanabanas, paddle board along the peaceful Jupiter Inlet Aquatic Preserve and get some “me time” at the spa with signature drinkable dark chocolate – it is divine!
In Puerto Rico, escape to the San Juan Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino without really leaving the U.S. (no passport required!). You’ll feel safe staying in the comfort of a brand hotel, all while hitting Condado Beach, and embracing your inner foodie and exploring the walkable culinary Condado neighborhood, filled with delectable food you’d never cook for yourself at home anyway.
Nothing does the body good like an indulging treatment at the award-winning Venus Spa at the CuisinArt Golf Resort & Spa in Anguilla. Whether you’re digging your toes in the powdery white sand, taking in a round on the 18-hole championship golf course, or eating at one of the resort’s five world-class dining options, you’ll be glad you don’t have to share a minute of it. Detox, refresh and work on your island tan.
If you travel solo, where’s your favorite solo destination?
