It’s Monday and pretty grey in London… let’s take a virtual holiday, shall we?
Last year, thanks to Tyler’s company and his hard work to qualify for their incentive trip, we were fortunate enough to stay at a little piece of heaven on earth: Rosewood Mayakoba. If you are on the hunt for an extra special, romantic, or decadent resort vacation… this is your place.
Are your bags packed? Bikinis, sunglasses, maxi dresses, reading material and flip flops? Ok good. You’re all set.
So let’s all imagine we touch down in sunny Mexico in our private jet (I’ve never been in a private jet, but let’s just pretend, ok?) Our driver, Juan, loads our things and we are on our way…. #mexicoorbust
As we pull into the resort, a little welcoming committee greets us by name with trays of this exotic mojito type smoothie drink.
The décor is gorgeous, with hanging lanterns, sweeping views, tropical greens, and palm trees swaying in the breeze.
We are escorted to this little dock and board a water taxi to take us to our cabana…
The driver gives a little tour of the resort and invites us to taste the fresh pineapple and papaya artfully arranged on the plate in front of us:
A short cruise later, we dock in front of our home for the next few days. The driver unloads our bags and tells us there is some tequila waiting for us if we would like. (I’ll let you decide if you would like to start your party at 10am, this is imaginary so you can do whatever you damn please…I’m not judging!)
We wander around our place checking everything out:
The next few days are spent enjoying coffee on the deck watching the sunrise…
Laying by the pool eating lobster pizza and sipping tropical drinks while looking out over this:
A bit of swimming, paddle boarding and long walks on the beach:
See the guy in the hat below? Yep – that’s Juan’s brother – he walks around and cleans your sunglasses poolside:
We will enjoy dinners at the resort, but also in town… having a nightcap (or two) in the tequila bar…
If you felt adventurous, we could take a day trip to zip line and swing from ropes into little hidden pools followed by lunch at a beachside cafe:
This mimosa is for you (I poured you a big one. This is how I make friends. Is it working?):
How is your mental vacation going so far? You like? Me too… now if only I could find a spare bank account with enough to take us all away…
I’ll go work on that while you head back to the pool…
Happy Monday everyone! xo
