As parents, staying relaxed is hard; staying hip is even harder. It’s easy to lose touch with current trends in fashion and in travel. That’s why we’re suggesting two new getaway spots, one by the sea and one in the city. Both provide a dose of much-needed rest and style, so you can get back in touch with the part of you that loves pool parties, striking up random conversations and staying out past 10 p.m. on a “school” night. It’s all still in you! Happy travels this holiday season. You and your significant other deserve it.

Situated in Mexico’s Riviera Nayarit, Starwood just opened a lively new ocean-front haven that boho surf dreams are made of. The modern destination puts its local culture in a posh spotlight with vivid décor touches, luxurious villa lodgings and a variety of bars and restaurants, including Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Spice Market. Not impressed yet? Private fitness trainers are always available (beach workout, perhaps?) and the WET deck offers a DJ-included pool party. Learn more here from W Hotels.

Located in the heart of NYC’s bustling and uber trendy Lower East Side, this new, super stylish urban hotel oozes with old-world character and offers a scene downstairs like you’ve never seen before. After sipping your morning coffee fireside in the lobby, shop the day away in SoHo and then return to the hotel to find your charming room surprisingly spacious and quiet. Later, the spot’s Dirty French restaurant comes alive with bartenders outfitted in tuxedo jacket, and a slew of bars just outside on Ludlow Street are there if you’re in the mood for some “hopping” with the local 30-somethings.
