Order up on
the Riviera Maya.
Fun for grown-ups, too: Domaine de
Manville's 18-hole golf course.
Playtime in Provence
Immerse your enfants in French culture at the 39-room Domaine de Manville. The children's club -
located in and around a pair of converted Gypsy caravans - at the 250-acre farm turned resort in
Provence offers games of pétanque (lawn bowling), French and American movie screenings, and cooking classes, as well as some prime hide-and-seek spots in its olive groves. Parents can join in on guided hikes
to the nearby Camargue Biosphere Reserve, or on a horseback trek along the Mediterranean coast.
Doubles from $300, including breakfast daily and a round of golf or $100 dining credit.
TACO TIME: At the
Mayakoba on Mexico's
Riviera Maya, there's no
need to leave the beach
for lunch. The new Aquí
Me Quedo taco truck
opens for business
daily, serving ceviche,
and, yes, plenty of tacos.
Doubles from $590,
including breakfast daily
and a $100 resort credit.
Sitting room by the sea:
A renovated Ocean House suite.
In addition to admiring the picturesque Atlantic views at Rhode
Island's Ocean House, guests can now learn how to paint them.
The hotel recently hired master watercolor artist Jeanne Potter
to serve as resident curator and director of art education. She'll
oversee rotating gallery shows in the 67-room hotel's lobby,
launch an artists-in-residence program, organize art lectures
and hands-on art classes for guests, and lead guided tours of
the hotel's collection. New England-inspired artwork fills the
1868 Victorian estate's public and private spaces, including
all 49 of its recently renovated rooms. Doubles from $655,
including breakfast daily and a $100 resort credit.
