Where Celebrity Families Go on Vacation

by Jeryl Brunner

Tom Cruise and Family at the Rosewood Mayakoba, Riviera Maya, Mexico

On location: For celebs who don't have time for a beach getaway and a jungle adventure before being called back to the set, the Riviera Maya's Rosewood Mayakoba brings it all together with a mile of white sand set against a verdant backdrop of mangroves. The 128 suites are spread over the 1,600-acre property, but schlepping bags is not a worry. Guests checking into standard rooms are ferried by a fleet of golf carts, while villa guests—like Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, and daughter Suri, who visited during winter 2008—take a boat to their private docks and are met by a personal butler. Those looking to escape a scandal that just hit the tabloids will want to book some time in the spa's temezcal, a domed structure for steaming out impurities. And if things are really bad, a Mayan shaman can be brought in to perform a healing ritual.

Star attraction: The villas each come with a private plunge pool and a rooftop deck for sunning, but Tom and the fam chose to play on the beach. We wouldn't be surprised if Suri had a hand in picking the resort: The kids' program really gets discerning tikes with its menu of yoga classes, reflexology massages, and mani/pedis.
