The Point Resort – Preview Soon

Coming Soon Personal Visit – The Point Resort

The Point Resort is a distinctive hideaway, a world apart. The Point is designated as Forbes only 5-star resort in Upstate New York. Built by William Avery Rockefeller a century ago, the fanciful log mansions, crafted of native timber and stone, personified the 19th century romantic notion of roughing it in great comfort, style and luxury. Today, The Point continues the tradition of honoring guests with its unique combination of warm hospitality, privacy and utter comfort.

The great Adirondack Park is a wonderland, a six-million-acre wilderness blanketing upstate New York from Albany all the way to Canada.

The legendary “High Peaks” – 46 mountains soaring higher than 4,000 feet – form the crown of the park, and the vast forest spreads out below them. It is a wild paradise composed of countless clear, cold lakes and tumbling streams, alpine meadows, and untold miles of trails. There is a special silence to be found here, skimming on skis through the snowy woods; waiting for trout to rise to a fly; or watching the campfire flicker in the mirrored edge of a lake.https://i2.wp.com/thepointsaranac.com/images/point-resort-map.png?w=584

Great North Woods  Small clapboard villages are scattered throughout the Adirondacks, and there is art, culture and world-class sporting opportunities as well—but it is the untamed nature of these “Great North Woods,” the magic of wild places, which has drawn people for centuries.https://i0.wp.com/thepointsaranac.com/images/mohawk3.png?w=584

Summer Lakeside Dining

Open year around.  Days at The Point unfold with boating, fishing, tennis, water skiing, croquet, badminton, swimming and hiking. Nearby, you will find golf, horseback riding, hunting, antiquing and some of the best trout and bass fishing in the country… though a hammock swaying under the high pines can be a great temptation.

Canoes, mahogany electric inboards and Adirondack Guide Boats are on hand, for some secrets of the lake can only be discovered from the vantage of a boat. As the sun sets, our big Elco launch sets out for an evening cocktail cruise, a perfect cap to a perfect day.

Personal Review Forthcoming!

 

Four Seasons Punta Mita *****

The Five Star Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita is my choice and the choice of many of my clients. I am devoted to this little oasis of calm relaxation on a sun-splashed stretch of Mexico’s Banderas Bay coastline. Sink your toes into the white-sand beach or frolic in the glittering aquamarine waters – both mere feet from the ground floor of your chic, Mexican-style beach home—your choice of ocean front casitas and villas—the rooms are spacious and all have views of the ocean.

Tropical Playground
Offering championship golf, diving, surfing, languid swimming pools, whale watching, flyboarding, fishing and the list goes on. The Lazy River is paradise for the kiddos.Dining
Under the renowned chef Philippe Piel, several restaurants offer grilled catch of the day, bountiful breakfasts, and Mexican classic cuisine. Of course, the refreshing perfectly prepared cocktails are served poolside, in the sand or in the many lounges. Cora Lounge offers panoramic views of the Pacific, and besides snacks and drinks, it is an inviting place to plop during whale watching season.

The Welcome You know I am passionate about The Welcome…On arrival, relax and enjoy the most delectable individual Margarita presented in your casita. And perfectly prepared cocktails are served poolside, in the sand or in the many lounges offering panoramic views of the Pacific.

Apuane Spa
Pièce de résistance. Step into a coastal haven of rest and tranquility. Apuane, Spanish for “healing waters,” is ultimate serenity in scenic Mexico. Spa therapists have created a special treatment that will enhance your feeling of well-being like no other massage you’ve ever experienced using tequila, indigenous sage oil and traditional Mexican healing techniques. My personal favorite: Healing Waters Body Ritual (Vichy Shower treatment) This healing ritual is a celebration honoring the Huichol “Rain Goddess” Nacawé and the healing powers of water. Renew and revitalize body and mind with a natural botanical scrub designed to revive the skin is combined with deep exfoliating massage movements to activate circulation and release tension. Native herbal ingredients and a selection of body moisturizers such as lavender, almond, or lemongrass create a treatment that is an experience and delight for all the senses.

Staff
The most devoted professional staff I’ve ever encountered. Fortunate guests will enjoy a round of golf with the very congenial GM amidst tropical jungle gardens overflowing with fragrant flowers, spectacular songbirds, colorful tree climbing iguanas, and a stunning ocean view. John is a beyond charming Irishman and if you are VV lucky he will gift you a book of his poems.
