VIP Travel Experts Predict the Hottest Resorts of The Year

Luiz Hoinkis and Justin Keeperman of WGY Lifestyle, are VIP travel gurus. They offer inside access to some of the world’s most desirable destinations, coveted tickets, hottest tables in town and exclusive options that some people don’t even know exist or how to obtain. Their clients include busy Silicon Valley techies to C-level executives, celebrities and the elite, whom are constantly on the go with limited time, and want their travel and life experiences to be as seamless and personalized as possible.

According to these guys no request from their clients is too outrageous to fulfill. They come with over two decades of expertise in the hospitality industry and have top notch international contacts on speed dial for every client’s individual needs.

We asked Luiz and Justin to give us their 7 hottest destinations and resorts for the upcoming year. This is what they recommend:

1 – Look out Mexico City, the next IT city is Guadalajara. the country’s second-largest metropolis and the capital of Jalisco is coming into its own. Especially the food scene, which is as good as you’d expect in the birthplace of tequila and the torta ahogada (a chili pepper sauce–soaked pork sandwich). Check out Casa Fayette, the new Grupo Habita hotel opening in late summer.

2- Vis, a tiny, just- bustling-enough island off mainland Croatia, has all the Adriatic allure of Split (boating, gorgeous coves and beaches, insanely good seafood) without the crowds and Euro-disco vibe.

3- Trancoso, in Brazil’s Bahia State, has perfectly clear waters, a breezy, buzzy scene. We recommend Uxua Casa Hotel & Spa, in the colorfully painted town square.

4 – Itz’ana, named after the Mayan god of day and night, celebrates the contrast from which it was born, offering residents a new way to live and experience the soul of Belize. The brand is pleased to announce the launch of sales for Itz’ana Resort & Residences.

5- Riverrun Lodge, a discreet, intimate property near Lake Wanaka, New Zealand, recently hosted His Royal Highness Prince Harry on May 11th. The prince and his party enjoyed a lunch by Chef Karen Marinkovic highlighting local ingredients including Cardrona merino lamb, Aoraki salmon and Blue River sheep’s cheese quiche, accompanied by roasted spiced vegetables and quinoa salads, followed by a layered apple and walnut cake and dark chocolate date and ginger slices for desert.

6– The rebirth of the legendary ultra-luxury resort One&Only Palmilla in Los Cabos, Mexico brings with it a host of culinary experiences, featuring signature restaurants and bars to entice gourmet travelers and those seeking the freshest farm-to-table options in the most memorable of settings.

7– Fairmont Ajman Opens Beachside on the Arabian Peninsula – Located in the land of perennial sunshine, this beachfront resort is nestled in the smallest of the seven Emirates and is flanked by pristine beachfront with unobstructed views of the Arabian Gulf.
