For When You're Ready to Get Away Again

It's no secret that people are ready to get out and travel again. But there is still some hesitancy as to where they should be traveling once borders open up and restrictions are lifted. Luckily, there are plenty of hotels and resorts all over the world that already offer secluded escapes that make it easy to practice social distancing.

This boutique hotel allows guests their own private floor with suite-style, ultra-luxury rooms. Enjoy dry saunas, private jacuzzi with ocean views, your very own kitchen and over 2,000 square feet of living space. There's even dedicated butler service for your every room service whim.

Sandals South Coast

Spend your vacation over the water at one of the over-the-water bungalows at Sandals South Coast in Jamaica. The adults-only resort was renovated in 2017 and highlighted the brand-new bungalows. And with three levels of service - Deluxe, Club and Butler, guests can choose the amount of luxury that will also fit their budget.

Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo
