Stay Reel: Blue skies ahead

Emerge from winter’s cold wrath and embrace some much-needed sunshine by planning a warm-weather vacation inspired by these one-of-a-kind getaways.

By Alison Cavatore | March 28, 2024

Ready to bid adieu to the winter blues and soak up some sunshine? Us, too! As the days get longer, it's the perfect time to start planning a trip that involves spending some of those extra daylight hours lounging on the beach or experiencing an outdoor adventure you’ve had on your bucket list for years. Whether you crave an urban retreat or a tropical escape, choosing a destination that will spark joy in you is key to a successful stay. So, let the sunshine in and get ready for your next warm-weather getaway.

Lounging in Los Angeles

Planning a warm-weather getaway can be thrilling — anticipating downtime in the sun, exploring new cities, trying local cuisine — but it can all add up quickly. From airfare to dining out and local transportation to unexpected fees, sticking to a budget can be tricky, no matter what that budget is. Just ask popular on-screen host Speedy Morman, who posted on TikTok about exorbitantly high fees that stacked up while booking a homestay in sunny Los Angeles. Hilton’s social media team jumped into the conversation and arranged a sticker-shock-free elevated stay for Morman at The Beverly Hilton, a perfect spot for rooftop lounging to make the most of California’s exquisite weather — not to mention easy access to all the best attractions in town. Grateful that he didn’t have to cancel his trip, Morman shared his gratitude to Hilton on his YouTube channel. Now that’s what we call walking on sunshine!

Mexico’s calling

With clear blue skies, warm sunshine and plenty of ways to truly escape, a vacation in Tulum is the ideal warm-weather getaway. Stunning beaches are the norm here, and when you stay at Conrad Tulum Riviera Maya, the ocean breeze and soft sands are only steps away from the comfort of your room. Prefer lounging by the pool? You’re in the right place ... the hotel features five sparkling pools with poolside cabanas for the ultimate relaxing vibes. Take advantage of your unique location and immerse yourself in local cuisine by heading to Autor for an authentic taste of traditional Mexican flavors like talla-style shrimp and mole rosa. With comfortable weather year-round, Tulum is also the perfect warm-weather destination for trying out fun activities like kayaking, paddleboarding and snorkeling, or exploring cultural highlights like Mayan ruins, lush jungles, cenotes and caves. What's not to love about a stunning and sunny sanctuary that will leave a lasting impression for years to come?

Group getaway

Sometimes you just need to get away ... together. Make your next sunny vacay one that you and your friends can all reminisce about for years to come. From Dubai and Tulum to Madrid and Montego Bay, there’s an ideal warm-weather destination just waiting for you and your besties to explore. A group getaway is a great way to reconnect while also providing everyone with the opportunity for individual rest and relaxation. For group bonding, enjoy daytime adventures like a desert safari in Dubai or day trip to the Green Grotto Caves in Jamaica and then get some alone time by relaxing at the spa or taking a poolside siesta. Regroup at the end of the day to savor local flavors before retreating to the privacy of your own room. Our top tip for a successful group getaway? Book Confirmed Connecting Rooms by Hilton so you can stay together while still giving everyone their personal space. Win, win!
