While we're finally out of the bleakness of January, this early time of year can be a little dour. Christmas is long over, paydays are few and far between and the horrendous weather all has us dreaming of sunny escapes. But there is one good thing about this time of year — holiday planning. The sales on flights and hotels, combined with endless daydreams about beaches and cocktails, means that this is the perfect month to start planning our summer vacations. And we think we've found the perfect destination.
The Haven Riviera Cancun
The Lobby Hall
Cancun in Mexico has everything — beautiful weather, stunning beaches, plenty of gorgeous food and drink, and resorts that are incomparable — our favourite of which is the Haven Riviera Cancun. Picture it: a brand new, all-suite resort along the coast between Cancun and Riviera Maya, and it's adult only. No family pools, no kid's club, just pure, quiet bliss.
If food is high on your holiday priority list, then the Haven Riviera has you covered too. The resort has six world-class restaurants, including an authentic Mexican steak house, a vibrant Asian Fusion restaurant, refined Mediterranean food and a casual seafood grill. There are also three snack bars and nine bars to choose from, meaning you'll never be stuck for choice on where to go.
The Satsu Restaurant
What to do
There are always two types of holiday-goers — the lie-by-the-pool-and-do-absolutely-nothing (except drink cocktails) type, and the nature walks, activities, jam-packed-days type. Well, lucky for all of you, the Haven Riviera has plenty for both. As well as being a beautiful resort for relaxations, they also offer daily beach walks, natural walkways through lush mangrove forests, plus jogging and bike trails. If you fancy venturing out of the resort, you've got the lively nightlife of Cancun and the stunning Mayan Ruins of Riviera Maya both within easy reach.
And of course, there's the all-important rooms. The most important part of any hotel, a room can make or break a holiday. But there's no fear of breaking with these rooms — each one on the upper floors feature a private balcony and Jacuzzi, as well as a walk-in closet and a raindrop shower. And if you fancy really splurging, opt for one of the amazing swim-out suites on the ground floor, which have a private terrace with sun loungers and direct access to your own swim-out pool.
