My luxury weekend in Punta Nizuc | Cancun, Mexico | Here some images of my luxury weekend at NIZUC Resort & Spa, hosted by LGTNetwork. This was my second time at this resort and spa, located at the private area of Punta Nizuc, a complete different experience to Cancun. Located only fifteen minutes away from Cancun International Airport. This time I was hosted at one of their lovely Penthouse Suites, located at the Residences Towers. Some of the great activities during my three days visit were, 5-Steps Mexican imbued gourmet dinner at the Chef’s Table at RAMONA Restaurant. Paddle-Boarding along the coast of Punta Nizuc and the mangroves. Paddle board yoga, over the green crystal waters of Nizuc Bay. Spa treatments and hydrotherapy cycle at their spa by ESPA. Cocktails and starters at Terra Nostra Restaurant, follow by a full dinner at Indochine, including options from all corners of Asia. Fantastic Peruvian lunch, with gorgeous beach views at Ni Restaurant. Private party hosted by Cartier to launch their arrival of the new collections to Mexico. And many many more.

Hotel Check IN at Ritz-Carlton Phulay Bay Krabi | Krabi, Thailand | Yesterday I transferred from Phranang Beach to Phulay Bay by both boat and land (50 minutes approx.) to arrive at the stunning Ritz-Carlton Reserve Phulay Bay. This is my first time at a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, a new concept by Ritz-Carlton and the only one, at the moment, in the world. Also this is the only Ritz-Carlton property in Thailand, but not for much longer, since they will be opening soon in Bangkok. The minute you arrive to the hotel, you are stunned by purple colors that rule the design of the reserve. Purple for Thais means Royalty. But the best is to come upon your arrival to the main lobby.

GPS Carlos Melia on my way to Koh Hong Island | Krabi, Thailand | Good Morning everyone. Another early morning for me, but hey with this views of the Phulay Bay from my villa at the Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Krabi, there is not sacrifice.

Hong means Room in Thai, and its name comes from an eroded group of caves in the middle of the island which harbours a large lake with a small passage to the sea, which you can see on the aerial photo above.
