Planter’s Punch (W Retreat and Spa, Vieques, Puerto Rico)

Experience the sophisticated vibe at the W Retreat and Spa on the tiny island of Vieques. Beverage Director Raul Gonzalez mixed up his own version of this Caribbean classic, perfect for cooling down at the “Wet” Pool Bar or while kicking back in the Living Room. Rejuvenate in a sea-view treatment room at Spa Chakra, dine on French-inspired Caribbean fare at Alain Ducasse’s miX On The Beach, or just keep the temperature down moving between the pool and two secluded cove beaches.  Clear your mind and empower your body at an early morning Yoga on the Beach session. -M.D. & J.J.
