Four Seasons Punta Mita Sharing Chilaquiles

At its best, travel is a transformative experience, not just in the meeting of local peeps, but in the cuisine and beverages we savor. Who doesn’t love going South of the Border? Food and spirits are vital elements of Mexican culture. Come to the Four Seasons Punta Mita for the relaxed pace, the sensational adios to the sun at day’s end, delectable dining and cooking classes, there is also a fun informative Tequila Blending Class. Just say Si!

Four Seasons Punta Mita

We are dreaming of our next escape to the Four Seasons Punta Mita. One of our most reserved Four Seasons properties, the congenial GM, John O’Sullivan, has become a good friend over the years. Many years ago, on my first site inspection in September which is a particularly humid month, we enjoyed breakfast together. Sharing my collection of press articles, he said: Oh, I don’t need those. I thought he was dismissing me, then he said where are you going now? Me: site inspections at another hotel. John: Don’t go, I’ll host you here. Me: But this is what I do. I moved to another property and in the midst of a meeting, a courier delivered a note from John with his book of moody Irish poetry. We’ve been friends ever since and as you can imagine our clients are beyond spoiled at the Four Seasons Punta Mita, besides our usual Preferred Partners amenities!

Benjamin & I visited again in a humid September, I enjoyed the luxurious Presidential Suite and Benj was next door in his own suite. We, of course, attended meetings and took classes, a site inspection isn’t merely lounging about, it’s becoming an expert on a property. Chef Jorge González  prepared these yummy Chilaquiles for our breakfast.

And for your upcoming Spicy Mexican Brunch – Chilaquiles! We hope you are healthy and dreaming of traveling soon.

Chef Jorge, after we begged for the Chilaquiles recipe – true to Four Seasons exceptional service, the recipe was delivered to my Presidential Suite before I returned! We loved chatting about food and culture with Jorge, do follow him on Instagram- his posts are mouthwatering! Jorge González (@jorgehglez)

Winter Blues

Cures for the Winter Blues: we recommend The Four Seasons Maldives – two scrumptious properties, plus a private island and a private yacht- https://www.gwenbooks.com/2019/10/four-seasons-maldives-hotels-private-island/ https://www.gwenbooks.com/2018/03/four-seasons-maldives-yacht-explorer/ https://www.gwenbooks.com/2018/02/four-seasons-kuda-huraa-resort-maldives/

There aren’t enough superlatives to fully and accurately describe the staggering natural beauty of the Maldives. Nothing prepared me for the beauty of the Maldives, the diving and snorkeling are exceptional, fish to table meals, scrumptious spas, it’s a distance, but beyond worth it! I stayed for two weeks and could have easily lounged/snorkeled for an additional week!

Snorkel or dive- this little guy was was in barely 4 feet of water right in front of my beach villa, manta rays hover in deeper seas, turtles may come in close for a peek at your mask!
Ancient Bhutan Kingdom

Brilliant blue skies at dizzying altitudes in the ancient Kingdom of Bhutan, explored village by village with Amankora Resorts. Amankora has five lodges spread through the Kingdom and each lodge is a subtle suggestion of the white walled Dzongs. The Bhutanese architecture is very colorful and replicated in farmhouses, temples and local shops. Amankora has kept it clean and simple, why try to compete with the majesty of the Himalayas, the bedecked local homes and the elaborately painted Temples. See my glorious posts on Bhutan https://www.gwenbooks.com/2019/02/amankora-bhutan-2-by-2/; https://www.gwenbooks.com/2019/01/amankora-bhutan/

We are strong Four Seasons supporters all over the world but for warm water and sizzling sun think of the divine Four Seasons Punta Mita, villas, beach cabanas, tequila tasting, warm water – it’s got it all! The recently opened Four Seasons Cabo is an architectural stunner- if you like a desert environment, absolutely isolated experiences, swimmable beaches then this new resort will speak to you. Our clients seeking winter warmth have visited almost every Four Seasons beach resort: Costa Rica, Bora Bora, Nevis and even the beautiful Four Seasons Athens beach resort in summer. Oh and the multiple Hawaiian resorts: Lanai, Maui, Hualalai, and Oahu Ko Olina, so many choices!

Farther afield: Fiji, many exceptional properties offering so many water activities, the kiddos will be worn out by the daily options! Exceptional deep sea fishing is also very popular in Fiji.

New Zealand and Australia offer summer warmth when we are chilly. Argentina wine tasting, it’s hot there! Spin the globe, follow the sun!
