  • The Point Great Hall

    Leave the hustle and bustle behind

    We love kids, but sometimes you just need to get away. These hotels and resorts around the world are kid-free zones.

  • Miraval Austin

    Much like the original Miraval in Tucson, Miraval Austin is a wellness resort focused on mindfulness and nurturing our bodies and spirits with the healing power of nature. Tucked in the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve, it's just a short drive from Austin and close to Lake Travis, where water activities include kayaking, stand up paddleboarding and fly fishing. The spa is an integral part of each day, whether you're enjoying Tibetan bowl massage, crystal energy healing or Vasudhara (Thai massage while floating in water). A culinary center in partnership with Williams-Sonoma offers classes on bone broth, chocolate appreciation and plant-based BBQ.

  • Nayara Springs

    There's no better place for a romantic Costa Rican getaway than this rainforest oasis overlooking one of the world's most active volcanoes. Sister hotel Nayara Resort is connected by a footbridge, but no kids are allowed at Nayara Springs. There are just 35 luxury villas, all with views of the Arenal Volcano and expansive private gardens, but the highlight is undoubtedly the private mineral spring plunge pool where you can skinny-dip to your heart's content. You can go canyoning, biking, rafting and zip lining nearby, but sipping passion fruit-infused guaro cocktails at the swim-up pool bar after a soothing volcanic mud massage at the spa is just as appealing.

  • The Point

    Originally built as an Adirondack Great Camp, The Point is a Gilded Age escape from the city on the shores of Upper Saranac Lake. With just 11 rooms, you feel like you're a friend of the Rockefellers at this all-inclusive, adults-only retreat. Take one of the lightning bug boats out for a spin or go for a hike in the forest. And if the weather is less than perfect, there are billiards and darts in the pub, and you can help yourself to limitless drinks. Everyone comes together for supper each night after a leisurely cocktail hour, and the dress code is black tie on Wednesday and Saturday evenings. Of course, there's always the option to dine in the privacy of your cabin and order truffled popcorn for a midnight snack.

Fuel your adventures with Magee Homestead's own Akaushi wagyu beef for breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus more than 100 different veggies from the 6,480-square-foot greenhouse, the largest in the state of Wyoming.

  • Stephanie Inn

    Oregon's premier oceanfront boutique hotel features panoramic views of Haystack Rock and the Pacific Ocean from Cannon Beach. Every room at Stephanie Inn comes with a cozy fireplace and Jacuzzi, and you can enjoy a glass of Adelsheim Vineyard pinot noir while watching the sunset and listening to the crashing waves. Dining is a highlight too – chef will even take you to the farmer's market or teach you how to make Stephanie Inn's signature salted caramel ice cream.

  • Villa 32

    Just north of Taipei, Beitou is Taiwan's most popular hot spring destination, beloved for its green, white and iron sulfur springs. There are dozens of hotels to choose from, but Villa 32 is the most intimate, a Relais & Chateaux hideaway with just five suites, each with a private hot spring bath. Originally built as a private residence, the discreet mountain home blends seamlessly into the surrounding geothermal valley with elements of stone, wood and water.

  • Twin Farms

    From private ski slopes, to the traditional Japanese hot soaking pool, to private dining in the 15,000-bottle wine cellar, Twin Farms allows adults to disconnect and truly relax. The rustically elegant accommodations include hand-painted murals, American folk art and rich maple and pine woodwork. There are no menus for lunch or dinner; instead the chef creates customized menus for each guest based on personal preferences, inspired by Vermont's finest produce and Twin Farms' estate-grown herbs and vegetables.
