You only have 18 summers with your children at home. Here’s how to make the most of your next one, creating memories together that will last a lifetime at one of these transformative destinations.

Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates

Double your pleasure in the United Arab Emirates with two magical resort experiences. At Al Wadi Desert, vast desert sands and a sky full of stars invoke wonder while an enchanting nature reserve, sparkling pools and exquisite dining delight the whole brood. At Al Hamra Beach, every accommodation is a luxury tented villa with its own swimming pool, expansive deck and private beach access. Kids can try their hands at paddle boarding, fishing and kayaking, or just plunge into the calm, turquoise sea.

San Jose del Cabo, Mexico

Something very special was in order for the first Ritz-Carlton Reserve in Mexico, and Zadún delivers from every breathtaking angle, from its clifftop perch just 15 minutes from San Jose del Cabo to stunning ocean-view accommodations and décor infused with the region’s celebrated craftsmanship. Budding Picassos and gourmands will delight in the resort’s aesthetic and culinary splendors, though the top draw might be the “tosani,” or personal butler, who is at your service throughout your stay.

Maldives, Fari Islands

You can feel your inner clock switch over to island time upon arrival at The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands. The property is especially delightful for kids, who can zip around barefoot, splash in the Indian Ocean, learn about marine life from on-site naturalists and experience the exceptional Ritz Kids program, based in a futuristic indoor/outdoor space with playgrounds and a knockout pool — though it’s just as thrilling for parents to discover the unique spa, a ring-shaped sanctuary inspired by the earth’s cardinal energy.

Istanbul, Turkey
