Fashionable woman traveling to New York.

Wow – 2020 is just around the corner! 2019 was a year of adventure. We embraced some quality family time with our incredible trip to The Rosewood at Baha Mar, and some relaxing couples travel with our kid-free getaway to The Rosewood at Tucker’s Point in Bermuda. Needless to say, we’re Rosewood people. 

Rosewood Baha Mar best places to travel in 2020
With so many activities in or out of sea, the Rosewood Baha Mar was the perfect spot for our little family trip.
My husband and I have become true devotees to Rosewood Resorts and the Rosewood at Tucker’s Point is on-par with our expectations of the intimate, upscale hotel line.

As we look ahead to 2020, I’m already getting excited about the places we’ll go next. I love a good mix of family, couples, and girlfriend getaways. From a quick roadtrip, to the other side of the world (literally), I’m so excited to start planning my 2020 travel. Here are the top 5 spots on my list. Please leave a comment and tell me where you’re going next year – maybe we can inspire each other!

Best Family Destinations

Explore the Cape

Taking it back to my New England roots, Cape Cod is on our 2020 family travel list. I’m always on the hunt for a place that blends luxury, relaxation, and plenty of activities for the kids. Chatham Bars Inn hits every mark. This spot is best for kids 2-10 years old because it has a great mix of kids programming, and there’s also a new Whydah Pirate Museum nearby. I love it for me and the hubs because it has that quintessential seaside luxury that we gravitate towards, and the spa is renowned. Visiting Chatham Bars Inn? Be sure to add these to your itinerary:

  • A whale-watching cruise
  • Shadow the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy as they tag great whites along the coast
  • Lobster rolls and ice cream, of course!

Explore Paris

Paris, for kids? Yes!! Exposing our kids to culture and exploration is important to us, and The City of Lights has treasures for the entire family. I love this hotel because they have an Art Concierge that can tailor art tours to all ages. The hotel even has Parisian movie nights in their private theater. Beyond the classic places: The Eiffel Tower, boating along the Seine, fighting the crowds at The Louvre (can the museum please ban cellphones so people can actually appreciate the art? Okay, rant over), there are countless family activities in Paris. While you’re noshing on fromage, be sure to add these travel experiences to your family-friendly Parisian adventure:

  • the puppet shows at Jardin du Luxembourg
  • visiting the Sunday pet market on the Ile de la Cité 
  • take a French cooking class

Crazy idea? Travel + Leisure just named Australia their destination of the year. Am I a complete crazy person to think about taking the entire fam down under? Tell me about your Australia travels in the comments.

Best Places for Romantic Retreats

Bet you didn’t expect to see a Montana ranch on my romantic retreats list. But this isn’t your average ranch. The Resort at Paws Up, a Relais & Chateaux property, blends incomparable luxury with unspoiled wilderness. When the hubs and I need to get away, sometimes retreating to nature– but in a way that still feeds my love of luxury, is just the ticket. I might go for the Couples Spa Package to add some wellness to our outdoor adventure that includes horseback riding and fly fishing. When you book, be sure to add travel experiences like these to your trip:

It’s no secret that we love Mexico. Something about the ocean air, peaceful beaches, and incredible cuisine call us back again and again. Viceroy Los Cabos caught my eye for 2020 because of its stunning, modern design, cinematic views, pure white buildings, and elevated walkways. Everything about this hotel screams luxury, clean lines, and elevated travel. I can see just us sipping margaritas and reading books for hours. Well, we might sneak off the spa for a few hours, too. Need some beach read inspiration? I’m loving:

Best Places for girlfriend getaways

Ah, girl time. I need so much of it and cherish every minute. This year, I’m eyeing Austin. I need a location that works for everyone and is quick to get to. A wellness resort is perfect for my crew – we love to soak in spa services, eat healthy food, and have lots of firepits and wine time to catch up. This resort also offers all-inclusive packages, which makes group travel so easy. The best part of this getaway? It’s a 30-minute water taxi ride from Downtown Austin where we can kick up our boots for a night of live music and some incredible bar-b-que. Of course, you have to get a massage and try their signature Age-Defying Laser and Antioxidant Facial. Want to get a little woo-woo? Try these treatments:

  • Honoring Transformation: This session blends dialogue and ceremony and is supportive for moving through times of change. Whether it be celebrating a milestone, letting go of the past, including less than optimum habits, or reclaiming and uniting parts of yourself, this session is helpful for successfully navigating life’s transitions. 


  • Crystal Bowl Sound Immersion: Join Julie Haber, Inspiration & Integrative Wellness Specialist and Crystal SoundEnergy Practitioner™ for a unique, mesmerizing experience. In this amazing sensory immersion, the crystal bowls are placed directly on the body, allowing sound frequencies to aid in addressing any imbalances by creating an environment conducive for a renewed sense of peace, relaxation, insight, inspiration, and healing.

I’d love to hear from you. Where are you going in 2020? What hotels and destinations do you love? Here’s to another year of family time, exploration, and reconnecting with the people we love the most.
