The Hyatt also has parrots on the property, making it fun for kids. The Hyatt is also a Virtuoso property, which means it is part of a luxury collection.

The Ritz also famously has the Ritz Kids program, which is great for little ones to have hands-on adventures and educational activities. During our tour of the Ritz, we also viewed the wedding location, which was by far a favorite! Walking down the wooden bridge over a small lake, with large water fountains on each side, to reach the arch at the end that leads you right onto the powdery white sands, this is the perfect entrance for a bride!
