Anyone can form a resolution for the new year. But fulfilling that resolution can prove incredibly challenging, as evidenced by the many resolutions that go unrealized.

Fortunately for those traveling in 2016, there are a handful of hotels and resorts where one can fulfill their resolution in as little as a one-night stay.

Here are three ideal accommodations for travelers in search of something new in 2016.

Be More Spiritual at Casa Palopo

Where: Casa Palopo; San Antonio Palopo, Guatemala

Everyone wants to find time for relaxation in 2016, but for those who want to connect with their spiritual side, Guatemala's Casa Palopo is the ideal accommodation. 

From professional in-room massage offerings to personalized shaman blessing rituals, the amenities and activities offered here are unparalleled when it comes to putting a traveler's mind at ease and finding clarity.

Relieve the leftover holiday stress with some yoga on the shores of Lake Atitlan, give your body some relief in the solar heated pool or choose from a variety of spa services. Afterward, you can head back to your room and let your mind wander while enjoying scenic views of the lake.

Get Closer to Nature at the Palms Hotel & Spa

Where: The Palms Hotel & Spa; Miami Beach, Florida 

Although you certainly don't think nature when you first think Miami Beach, The Palms Hotel & Spa is said to be "inspired by nature."

A beach lover's paradise, guests visiting this hotel will have an opportunity to grow closer to nature at every turn. From organic cocktails and locally-sourced eats to tropical gardens, the Palms offers a unique spin on luxury.

If you're looking for a little inspiration from Mother Nature this year, consider the hotel's Sanctuary Yoga Retreat package, which allows guests to take in a day of yoga sessions and guided meditations among the aforementioned tropical gardens.

Looking to lend the environment a hand? Then book the Do Good - Feel Good package.

Try Something New at the Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort

Where: Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort; Curacao

Whether you're looking to cross something off your bucket list or simply pick up a new hobby in 2016, Curacao's Santa Barbara Beach & Golf Resort is just the spot. 

Activities available here range from the traditional like golf and tennis to the more challenging like paddle-boarding and hiking. The resort property features a Pete Dye designed championship golf course as well as thousands of acres of hiking and biking trails.

For traveling families, the resort's Camp Arawak kid's club provides activities for children ages three to 12 so the adults can break away for some fun of their own. If they run out of activities at the resort, guests are encouraged to explore the rest of Curacao, whether underwater while scuba diving or with a tour on dry land.
