Before we dive into 2011 and all the adventures it offers, let's take a look back at some of the most spectacular hotels and resorts of the past year.
By far, the most sensual resort of the year has to be Banyan Tree Mayakoba. When every couple gets a private villa with a pool (twenty-foot privacy walls all around), the concierge has a "romance book" and showers and bathtubs are outdoors, the stage is set. Add in the fabulous food and Thai spa at this secluded Mexican Riviera resort, and you've got a destination worth returning to year after year.
