You look forward to them every year… with each long weekend holding a secure place on your calendar, there is no better time to plan a few days away. Who said your vacation has to be a two week long sabbatical? Just because your holiday is only three or four days doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice an amazing trip. With time of the essence, it’s crucial to choose a getaway that allows you to spend more time in your destination and less time getting there. We’ve rounded up our favorite long weekend vacations!
For a Tropical Escape…
Grace Bay, Turks & Caicos
The Palms Turks & Caicos wastes no time in transporting guests to island time from the moment they arrive. The only hardship you’ll face this weekend is deciding whether to spend your day in a chair on the beach or next to the pool. Sun, sand, and a drink from the pool’s swim-up bar are just what the doctor ordered!
An easy flight from most major US airports, The Palms Turks & Caicos is a quick 8 miles from the airport, ensuring you can start your holiday ASAP.
For a Weekend in the City…
Los Angeles, California
Located in the heart of Beverly Hills on Sunset Boulevard, The Beverly Hills Hotel is an oasis just steps away from the pulse of the city. Make the most of your time with the best of both worlds in Hollywood’s most iconic hotel. Treat yourself to world class shopping and dining, then retire to your suite for a quiet glass of bubbly.
Just a quick cab ride or private transfer from LAX, The Beverly Hills Hotel is arguably one of the most accessible getaways on our list.
For an Action Packed Adventure…
Spend a long weekend in the wild, wild, west! Situated on 37,000 acres of wilderness, The Resort at Paws Up is a seamless combination of ranch and resort. We recommend spending at least four days to experience their extensive list of over 50 activities from horseback riding to water sports.
The Resort offers round trip transportation from Missoula International Airport. You’e just a 45 minute drive from the great outdoors!
For a Relaxing Retreat…
It’s time to unwind, and what better place to reset than Belmond Maroma? The resort boasts one of the best beaches in Riviera Maya and one of the best spas in the world. Sit back and enjoy the five-star service and low-key atmosphere or head to Kinan Spa for a rejuvenating, traditional Mayan treatment.
Under an hour from Cancun’s International Airport, Belmond Maroma offers transfers to and from the airport. Or if you prefer, your advisor can make arrangements for a private driver.
For a Family Trip…
Charleston, South Carolina
Named #1 Best City in the United States and #10 Best City in the World in 2018 by Travel + Leisure, it’s no surprise that Charleston made our list of long weekend getaways. Belmond Charleston Place is situated on two of Charleston’s most famous streets, King Street and Meeting Street. It is located within walking distance of countless Charleston staples and is also a quick 30 minute drive to neighboring beaches and islands. With so much to see and do in so little time, call in reinforcements from the hotel’s concierge for guidance and help arranging activities.
Take an uber or cab from Charleston International Airport or have your advisor arrange private transportation. Plan to do a bit of exploring? Rent a car and utilize the hotel’s valet parking.
