Ezon says, “Located in the new Costa Palmas development sixty-minutes north of crowded Cabos San Lucas, the 141-room Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos sits on two miles of beachfront anchoring the new marina.”

There’s also an outpost of Estiatorio Milos, founded by acclaimed chef Costas Spiliadis, who has made it an unparalleled culinary destination for seafood in Montreal, New York, Athens, Las Vegas, Miami, and London.

The 3,474 sq. ft. Presidential Villa is the largest accommodation at the resort and is suitable for six adults and up to four children. 

Designed for family vacations and group entertaining, you will find a private oceanfront location that’s close to resort amenities. Live outdoors on expansive terraces with three plunge pools. The sleekly modern interior features lavish living areas and a show kitchen, enhanced by your own private chef on request and a Four Seasons personal assistant.

2. Zadun, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, Los Cabos

Ezon says, “All rooms at this sparkling 115-room resort feature private plunge pools, which would be hard to tear away from were it not for the sprawling 30,000 square foot Alkemia spa. Families will love the 42 two-bedroom villas and the property’s acclaimed Ambassadors of the Environment program, designed by Jean-Michel Cousteau.”

Ezon says, “Launched by HGTV “House of Bryan” celebs Bryan and Sarah Baeumler, Caerula Mar Club opens with 18 “beach chic” oceanfront suites and six private villas on sleepy South Andros, Bahamas. The island’s 190-mile barrier reef is the third-largest in the world and a diver’s paradise.”

Fly into Congo Town International Airport. The runway is 5,321 feet long and there is no fuel with an unattended control tower. There are twice-daily flights from Nassau or fly to Fort Lauderdale and charter from there.

The Private Villas at Caerula Mar are designed in an authentic Bahamian style with all the comforts of modern Caribbean living. Using sustainable practices in the restoration and construction, the owners used local and natural materials to harmonize the accommodations with the landscape. 

The resulting tranquil ambiance is the essence of barefoot luxury. Each 750 sq. ft. one-bedroom villa (sleeps two) and 800 sq. ft. two-bedroom villa (sleeps four) features open-plan living and sleeping areas. Outside, lounge on your private porch and soak up the magnificent beauty of your surroundings.

It’s part of the Chapultepec Uno mixed-use development. Details on the suites are not available yet.
