Four new hotels to escape this cold weather

March 9, 2017

Since being taken over and given a modernist redecoration by Emmy-winning producer and media honcho Kevin Wendle, this Mediterranean-style boutique retreat on the Riviera Maya — with just 29 rooms, suites and villas on 50 relatively undeveloped ocean-side acres — has recently attracted boldface names such as Gwen Stefani, Diane Kruger, Kate Bosworth and Suki Waterhouse.

How’s a day trip to Cuba sound?

This weeks-old, nautical-feeling 20-acre resort — on Key West’s once-industrial, now-on-the-rise Stock Island — claims the closest US marina to Havana. (Ask the concierge to set you up with a yachting excursion.)

But if you prefer to stay put, the 175 rooms, all with ocean views, and six impressive swimming pools should do nicely.

Adding to the appeal of Costa Rica’s Pacific-side coast in the Guanacaste province — which already houses larger Four Seasons and Andaz resorts — are the 21 contemporary villas of this month-old property.

If you can tear yourself away from your private-ocean-view, saltwater infinity plunge pool, be sure to check out the 360-degree vistas from the cliff-top main pool and outdoor restaurant.

Recently reopened as part of Hilton’s Curio Collection (after a multimillion-dollar redo by sought-after New York decorator Jeffrey Beers International), this 388-room, midcentury spot in San Juan’s Isla Verde district sits on two miles of beach.

It boasts a new spa, four pools with 22 cabanas and a restaurant from the chef behind Miami hot spot Barceloneta.
