Langkawi
Amanpulo

Look super interesting but seems difficult to do for a quick ~3 day trip over a shabbos...

Looking for something for January from East coast:

5-6 nights (can take another day or 2 for travel)

Have Hyatt Globalist and marriott Titanium:

Want to go somewhere where it will be easy with my status to get a suite to comfortably fit 5 (1 King and a sofa bed and crib is enough)

Will bring food

Did already:
STJ
SKB
GCM
MIA
TLV
Thailand
HKG
Did hawaii but not DDF proper (but dont think I want to drag 3 kids there)

Need beach

Prefer not to have a factory place like CUN with tons of people

Prefer luxury hotels like STR, Ritz, Park Hyatt etc.

Any ideas?

Maybe look at Panama

How much do you care about zika? Puerto Rico could work (ritz). Lots of other Caribbean options.

Looking for somewhere to go in Europe for 3-4 days following a week in LHR. Good kosher food is a requirement.
(Been to CDG, VCE, FCO, AMS). Traveling with kids so nothing jam-packed (ie, not Spain- too many cities to hit so that will be a separate trip)

ETA: Ideally somewhere with less antisemitism. Although I guess that's not really possible now?

MXP? BCN could also work on its own without the rest of Spain. Antwerp and Zurich  have food but not enough to do.

Assuming you don't want to fly to the Mediterranean as Greece could work also.

Wasn't an opinion between the  2. Just remembered offhand that there was a ritz. Never been personally (due to zika) .

Why would you be willing to shlep to DXB but not HI?

Its easier to get nonstop premium cabins from NYC. Flight timing works out better. Better hotels. I did Hawaii already and would want to try something new. And Hawaii was an option just looking into all my options

dxb is one flight. I lose a day on the way there and I get it on the way back. MLE is another flight and then a seaplane so it doesn’t really make sense.
