weekend29After New Year's night maybe you'll wish to escape from a blizzard on the northern part of Earth. Visit warm and outstanding places to rest and prepare for new challenges in 2008. For the last Globe we choose hotels in Jamaica, Cuba, Mexico and Panama.

weekend29Americas, Jamaica
First, we introduce you Grand Lido Resort & Spa in Negril, Jamaica. It lies 55 miles west of Montego Bay and approximately 90 minutes from the Montego Bay Airport. That all-inclusive resort in tropical ambience has everything you wish: tennis area, endless array of water sports like windsurfing, snorkelling and kayaking. If the sand on the beautiful 200 yards long white beach tickles you, you may choose 12-foot long plunge pool and sauna or even a steam room. For people who want to avoid wet activities Grand Lido Resort & Spa offer seating games like backgammon, dominoes or table tennis, so you can enjoy in sports the way you chose.

If your brain can't work without action, bring chess table with you and organize a tournament on to one and enrich Grand Lido Resort & Spa offering.

weekend29Americas, Cuba
If you prefer Cuba, Fidel Castro's island, you can't miss a pleasure and entertainment, especially if you decide to walk to the city and mingle with natives. But, first a hint for the hotel. Luxury 5 stars all-inclusive Royal hideaway is located on the Cuba's best beach. It is a member of Great Hotels of the World, Small Luxury hotels of the World, and Charming Hotels and this is the best invitation it can offer. Royal hideaway is for adults only, so this is a perfect reason to left your kids with their grandpa and grandma, and for you perfect occasion for relaxing, tasting a refined cuisine and first class service.

2240 meters long beach and 100 hectares of lush Caribbean gardens can be a solution for losing everyday stress. I think that Cubans still don't have a word for stress, or they deal with it with native sense of joy.

weekend29Americas, Cancun
"The evolution of the all inclusive resort" or Royal Hideaway Playacar, you choose the name. Royal Hideaway is 45 minutes from the Cancun International Airport and just five minutes from the charming town of Playa del Carmen. Royal Hideaway has villas built in colonial Spanish and Mexican style of architecture. That hotel also has age policy, so if you take children with you check for ages. If they have less then 13, leave it to a grandma and grandpa and your holiday can begin. Spacious rooms, private terraces, marble baths and magnificent countryside are everything you will need in the next seven days.

If you want to stay longer and also work, you can use wireless Internet and be in business 24 hours a day. If one day you don’t find your laptop and your partner has a smile on her face, don't worry - you will get you laptop back after few long walks on the most beautiful beach stretch on the Yucatan Peninsula.

weekend29Americas, Panama
Who doesn't like Tailor of Panama movie? The days of tension are behind us for a long time now, but beautiful countryside is still there. If you feel adventure, visit Gamboa Rainforest Resort in the heart of the lush Panama rainforest. Gamboa Rainforest Resort is located within the Soberania National Park, 30 minutes away from Panama City on the Pacific Coast, and 30 minutes from the Colon Free Zone on the Caribbean. What can you expect? They can't promise you to see Jamie Lee Curtis, Pierce Brosnan or Geoffrey Rush, but they can arrange almost everything else.

The main hotel facility is comprised of 107 deluxe rooms, air-conditioned river front rooms, each offering spectacular view of the Chagres River and the surrounding Soberania National Park. Place for the pleasure, love and maybe for some new suit.

weekend29South Africa, Cape Town
"The luxurious Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa lies where earth, sea, and sky meet, poised above Atlantic rollers and flanked by the majestic Table Mountain and her Twelve Apostles mountain range in glorious Cape Town, South Africa." To those words we will add just few lines. The Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa wins influential 2007 World Travel Award. In 2005 - Winner of "The Best Hotel in Africa/Middle East".
