Yelapa beach

A great philosopher once said: “If you’re not swinging from a hammock, you’re not living life.”

OK, not really true, but it should be. The reality is that hammocks are making a huge comeback in luxury resorts. I’ve seen them pop up more and more at properties in the past few years, and I’m all for it. Nothing beats the sound of feet not touching the ground as you dance with gravity in paradise.

From Mexico to the Maldives, these are the best hammocks (or hanging chairs) at luxury resorts we’ve swung in.
