Resolution: Work Less, Play More
Where to Go: Turks and Caicos
What to Do: East of Cuba in the Caribbean, this group of islands solidly removes you from the office—and there’s plenty to remind you of life beyond the BlackBerry. Kite surfing—where you ride on a board, pulled by a kite—is a local favorite here, thanks to the accommodating winds. If you still crave the thrill of closing a deal, do a conch-diving cruise, where you can free-dive to score your conch, then have it barbecued ashore.
Where to Stay: The Grace Bay Club gives you a serene setting for kicking back post-playtime: there are spa-treatment tents and daybeds along the beach and, to further distance you from the grind, a 90-foot bar. —Katrina Brown Hunt
