Valley-based boy mom and lifestyle contributor Nadine Bubeck (Mama B.) showcases a fabulous, family-friendly hot spot every month. This month, she’s bringing us somewhere special- a place where parents can indulge in some essential R&R.
When was the last time you took a trip without your kids? While I know this travel column is all about family-based hot spots, we all need some adult QT to rejuvenate our mind, body and soul. Truth be told, it took me a whopping six years to take a kid-free vacay, and it was a trip I didn’t realize I REALLY needed.
If you crave an escape where the sky meets the sea, hop a 2.5-hour flight from Phoenix to Cabo. Le Blanc Spa Resorts sets the stage for a truly remarkable experience targeting anyone seeking “big kid fun.”
The adults-only all-inclusive resort sits amidst the glistening Sea of Cortez, far from the hustle and bustle of young Cabo-goers. Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted by a personal butler who serves as your go-to throughout your entire stay. (Yes, you read that right… someone waiting on YOU, rather than YOU waiting on your kids!)
Accommodations are bright and stylish flaunting a plush bed, pedestal tub, Bvlgari toiletries, and filled liquor dispensers. Many suites offer partial and full ocean views with balconies ideal for waking up early to watch the sunrise. And since you have 24-hour room service, why not pair that sunrise with early morning mimosas.
The Blanc Spa features one of the most unique wellness experiences you’ll ever endure, included in your all-inclusive package.
The hydrotherapy “journey” is a holistic ‘health through water’ treatment, inspired by traditional Greco-Roman rituals. This stimulating 90-minute experience replenishes your body and satiates your soul, as you go from sauna to steam room to ice room, plunge pools and beyond.
One of the most enjoyable parts about staying at an all-inclusive is eating. Le Blanc takes your taste buds on quite a dance, offering a variety of dining options: seafood, French, Italian, Asian, and more. (In fact, it features the only Lebanese restaurant in the entire Baja Coast.) Choose between an array of ceviche at The Ocean, the property’s ocean front eatery, or opt for a multi-course tasting menu at the fancy French restaurant. Every bite is included in your all-inclusive price.
Swim + Sip
The property itself is an oasis of relaxation, draped in plenty of pools, hot tubs, lounge beds, and more. Spend your mornings walking the beach, and your days resting poolside and downing daquiris via the swim-up bars. Cheers to you, mom and dad… you deserve it.
