If you’re looking to escape your everyday life and get away with the family, let me introduce you to a poorly kept secret gem called Generations Resort in Mexico. Opened in June 2013, this resort will change the way you think about travel with your family. Don’t sacrifice luxury, elegance and gourmet food for the little ones. Generations allows you to enjoy all that and more, with specialized rooms for the kids equipped with nanny service. Don’t want to just leave them with someone else? No worries. There are enough activities on the premises for you to enjoy with them. Today was my first of 4 days that I will be spending in Mexico exploring Karisma Hotels Resorts. Tomorrow, we’re doing a full tour of the premises. For now, here are some shots of Generations from Day 1.
One of the many peaceful sitting areas on the premises.
The pool area. There is a separate pool for the kids.
You or the nanny can bring little kids here to play. This is steps from the beach so you can leave them with the nanny while you sunbathe and read for as little as an hour.
Welcome to the ridiculousness that is my suite. This is the patio outside my suite. Wait until you see the inside.
My suite has 5 rooms. 5 rooms, people! There are 2 bathrooms plus an outside shower (so 3 showers in all). There is also a living room, dining room and kitchenette that are all fully stocked. Everything is really spacious and elegantly decorated. There are 3 flat-screen TVs so up to 3 kids can watch their choice of programming at a time. Xboxes are also available.
This is the living room.
This is the outdoor shower. It sounds like not a big deal but taking a shower with the warm fresh air coming in is divine.
This is the master bed. The couch pulls out to 3 single separate beds.
This bed is on the patio that overlooks the ocean. Insanity! This is where I ate breakfast, of course.
The water is really still and shallow which is perfect for little ones just getting their bearings in the ocean.
Sailing the Mexican seas before dinner.
We ate dinner in a wooden hut perched above the beach. It was perfection.
Cactus salad. It’s worth at least one try per lifetime.
Tortilla soup. It was so amazingly delicious.
The seas bass was cooked to exact perfection (the word ‘perfection’ keeps coming up. Do you see a theme here?)
Dessert was light and sweet.
This was the view walking back to our suites. We promptly changed into bathing suits and went to the pool. Weather like this is not to be wasted sleeping!
……except when it’s past midnight and you’re on New York time. Tomorrow, we’re doing a full tour of Generations Resort and we’re switching hotels to the Sensatori. It’s going to be very, very hard to top this one. I hope the Sensatori is up to the challenge because I’ve just about ready to give up on New York and move into this suite.
