Banyan Tree Mayakoba Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya, Mexico Zach Stovall

Riviera Maya. Relaxation. Privacy. Three words that should always be used together, especially here at this resort. Set off for a private dinner cruise aboard dining boat “Ixchel—Goddess of the Moon,” unwind in your very own villa and snorkel the world’s second largest coral reef. banyantree.com

3. Four Seasons Resort and Residences Anguilla

Spark a Cuban cigar and sip aged rum as you wind down at the adults-only infinity-edge pool overlooking Barnes and Meads bays. Follow up with an Asian-inspired snack from Sunset Lounge and jam out to reggae-inspired tunes all night long. fourseasons.com/anguilla/

2. Petit St. Vincent

Unplug at this Internet-less resort and sink into the seclusion of private island luxury. Watch the yachts from your cabana (or better yet, watch from a yacht) as they sail over turquoise waters, perfect for a swim after hours under the sizzling Caribbean sun. petitstvincent.com

Options abound here at Secret Bay — from fish fish steamed in coconut milk with root vegetables and a summer salad for dinner to made-just-for-me dessert to homemade gelato in the freezer. Hard to believe I’m in a treehouse. Before leaving to concoct my feast, my attendant Maggie goes over tomorrow’s itinerary: a private beach yoga session, a massage, then a boat tour of the Pirates of the Caribbean shooting locale. Or whatever I’d like. I’m sensing a theme I could get used to. secretbay.dm
