When the colors of fall fade and temperatures drop, dreams of summer kick back up again. Want to make those warm-weather reveries a reality? Well, we’ve found nine destinations to visit that feel like summer all year round.
Average November High Temperature: 61 degrees
There’s no need to venture all the way to the Mediterranean; you’ll enjoy summer-like surroundings well into November in the French Riviera. The Forbes Travel Guide Recommended InterContinental Carlton Cannes is the ideal spot to watch the cool crowd as you soak up the sun. Take in the glamorous atmosphere from your tapestry- and hardwood-filled room or the iconic Boulevard de la Croisette with alfresco dining at Carlton Restaurant.
Average November High Temperature: 77 degrees
Head south, way south, for pleasant springtime temperatures (through December), thinner crowds and blooming flowers — especially those at Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Palacio Duhau – Park Hyatt Buenos Aires.
The regal hotel’s tiered gardens are among the most beautiful in the city. You’ll find this to be an excellent place to mill around with a cocktail as you enjoy the fragrant florals. The rooms are exquisitely decorated sanctuaries for relaxing or merely reminiscing on the cold temperatures that you left back home.
Average November High Temperature: 79 degrees
Once you arrive at Four-Star The Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour, Miami, you’ll want to go straight outside to take in the spectacular view of the Atlantic. Grab a drink and bite at the outdoor pool bar or dip into an individual hot tub in the garden — maybe both.
Either way, you’ll want to linger as long as possible in the agreeable outdoor air. But even when it’s time to retire to your well-appointed room, floor-to-ceiling windows, free-standing tubs and granite countertops keep things warm.
Average November High Temperature: 53 degrees
Enjoy what’s left of the desert warmth and walk to the best of Santa Fe’s restaurants, shops and attractions when you stay at Four-Star The Inn of the Five Graces. In addition to its centralized address, the historic boutique property also boasts rooms equipped with fireplaces and mosaic-tiled bathrooms. Units lead to several fountain-rich courtyards where you can laze about on chaise lounges.
Average November High Temperature: 75 degrees
Hong Kong’s pleasant late-fall weather almost implores you to explore its parks, walk its buzzy streets full of shops and retreat to Forbes Travel Guide Recommended L’hotel Island South. Bask in the latter as much as possible through the Getaway Package, an overnight deal that spoils with overnight accommodations, meals, complimentary wi-fi and more.
From this Southern District spot, you can also easily reach the Stanley’s waterfront promenade, its famous market and its two beaches.
Average November High Temperature: 82 degrees
Travelers head to Maui’s beachfront Grand Wailea, a Waldorf Astoria Resort year-round for the elaborate pool experience — there’s a total of nine different pools with “rivers” that connect them, intertwining slides, waterfalls, a lazy river, caves and more. Opt for the beach or the outdoor Grotto Bar when you need a change of pace.
Through January 2017, you can experience this and much more through the resort’s aptly titled Another Day In Paradise promotion, which grants you a complimentary fifth night in the dreamy destination after you purchase four.
Average November High Temperature: 81 degrees
Ayana Resort and Spa Bali is a nature-inspired getaway on 222 secluded acres perched above Jimbaran Bay. Cavort on the private beach, drink at the iconic Rock Bar (it sits picturesquely on natural sea rocks) or get a massage on a rocky outcrop surrounded by the sea. No matter what the calendar says, you’ll feel like you’re in the middle of summer vacation at this tropical outpost.
Average November High Temperature: 63 degrees
Downtown L.A. has a lot to offer, especially if you stay at Forbes Travel Guide Recommended JW Marriott Los Angeles, L.A. Live. Located within a high-rise campus, the 878-room hotel features marble baths and stellar views.
You can also enjoy the city’s famously sunny conditions by walking to the many major venues, restaurants and historic landmarks in the area. Celebrity-watching is an unofficial perk, too, so don’t be shocked if you see a famous face or two without trying.
Average November High Temperature: 88 degrees
Looking for a bit of autumnal romance? Book a room at the endlessly lovely Capella Ixtapa, a Forbes Travel Guide Recommended treat where each guest suite has a living area and an open-air terrace (with private plunge pools for cuddling, of course) that overlooks the scenic cliffs that lead to the Pacific.
Between outdoor Instagram photo shoots, don’t miss the nightly tequila tasting, authentic Mexican art in the public spaces and the 6,000-square-foot spa.
