Luxury Sunshine Escapes


If you’re like me, you probably like to go all-out when you travel. With all the amazing luxury options out there, why settle for less than 5-star accommodations and hospitality? In my 13 years working in travel, I have been fortunate enough to experience some of the best treatment the industry has to offer. 

One of the newest luxury hotels in Mexico, Unico Rivera Maya is directly inspired by the rich character of Riviera Maya, and incorporates many natural and handmade materials sourced within the area. The rooms and suites mix modern luxury with familiar rustic moments inspired by the region’s history. Unico offers 5-star accommodations, in-room minibar stocked according to preference, custom-scented amenities, complimentary wifi … just to name a few. Since its opening in March 2017, I’ve had the opportunity to stay and experience the luxury first-hand.  

Hard Rock hotels will never disappoint. I myself have been lucky enough to stay at the Hard Rock over 10 times, where I’ve enjoyed 90 minute hot stone massages and a gorgeous overwater cabana with a private butler. At Hard Rock you can experience Rock Royalty® and take advantage of your personal concierge staff to help you live out your rock star dreams. You’ll also receive discounted or complimentary tickets to concerts, priority access for events, and extra perks to your guest room, such as Rock Spa® amenities and an upgraded bath. You’ll feel like you’ve never had it so good. 

Did you know that you don’t have to travel far to stay in overwater accommodations? Picture yourself in an overwater bungalow in Mexico or Jamaica with a personal butler and your own infinity pool all to yourself! You can step out of room and take in the breathtaking views of the endless turquoise water. I have not yet personally stayed in one, but you better believe it’s on the top of my list. 

Another one of my favorites is Club Mobay in Jamaica. I’ve only been able to make it there twice so far, but the experience does not disappoint, with a fast-tracked personalized meet and greet, a VIP lounge, and snacks, beverages, and even private restaurants! The luxury options are endless.  

Give me a call, and let me make your luxury travel dreams a reality!

Our Amazing Honeymoon!!!

Reviewed By comcass - Coon Rapids, MN | Traveled to St. Lucia ~ Caribbean
Kristi was an amazing person to work with while we planned our honeymoon. Neither of us had ever used a travel agency to book a trip, nor had we ever done much traveling outside of the US. Kristi made the process so easy and seamless. At first we had no idea where we wanted to go for our honeymoon. She asked us questions, had us brainstorm, and eventually helped us travel to the Sandals Regency La Toc in St. Lucia! We are so happy that we worked with Kristi to plan our honeymoon. We have told everyone we know to talk with Kristi if they need help planning a trip. Thank you again.

Kristi Mackedanz responded:
Congratulations again! Glad you had an amazing honeymoon. Can't wait to help you with your 1st anniversary trip!

Great adults get away!

Reviewed By Kim - Cottage Grove, MN | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Kristi was wonderful to work with! In the beginning stages of our trip planning, she spent a lot of time gathering information for us. When I would switch my thinking of destinations Kristi always reassured me and would share information with me. She was dedicated, hard working and always willing to go the extra mile. I thought it was great when I received an email from her during our vacation-she was just checking in to make sure all was going well.
I highly recommend Kristi for your travel needs. She is excellent at what she does!

The best honeymoon we could have ever asked for!

Reviewed By Kelsey Fuhrmann - Crystal, Minnesota | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
I found out about Kristi through a friend, Julie Thorp-Binger, another travel agent with Travel Leaders. She dealt more with business travel, so she referred me to Kristi and I'm so happy she did! Kristi was fabulous to work with! She made planning our honeymoon in the midst of planning an entire wedding almost effortless! I was so happy to have someone to help me find exactly what we were looking for! She was prompt in her responses which I appreciated greatly. She was very kind and fun to work with! I would highly recommend her and will definitely hope to work with her again on our next vacation!

First family outing

Reviewed By Terve - St. Paul, MN | Traveled to San Diego ~ California ~ USA
Ali was very nice and was quite flexible in our meandering ideas of what might suit for a first family trip. She was very lax in communication and did not research some of the items we had discussed. I wish she had been more versed in some of the locations we mentioned based on the profile she promoted. The only reason we won't suggest her to family is because we'd like to establish a better relationship with her. We try really hard to get to know our vendors before suggesting family and friends to use them. I believe that once a good relationship is fostered we will be able to update this review and hopefully pass on Ali's information.
Kristi Mackedanz responded:
Thank you for your review. I'm saddened that you feel that I was lax in communicating, as I look back at our emails we communicated quite frequently & we discussed many different options. I hope that you found my detailed info helpful in planning & deciding on several different destinations with this trip, and we can absolutely discuss your future plans on new destinations as well. Thank you for considering referring me to your family and friends, I look forward to working with all of you again.

3RD Visit to Punta Cana

Reviewed By Nicole - Minneapolis, MN | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
I have had the pleasure of knowing Kristi for about 15 years, we previously worked together at a different travel agency and I have been using Kristi as a travel agent for about 4 years now since I am no longer a travel agent and have book several trips through her and have referred may friends and family to her.

Kristi is always professional and honest. I trust her completely to get us the best deal possible.

Kristi and her assistant are always efficient. I contacted her several times prior to my departure to have her check to see if the price has gone down and she is always speedy at returning with the answers for me.

During the planning stage of this particular trip I used Kristi's knowledge of the area to find a different hotel than what I have used in my previous visits to Punta Cana.

My plan is to get a large group together for another trip to Punta Cana in 2019 and we will definitely all be using Kristi.

My experience has always been a positive one, Kristi is very down to earth, easy to work with and very knowledgeable regarding travel. If she doesn't have an answer to my question she will go to great lengths to get me what I need to know.

We always feel confident and ready the day of travel because of Kristi's efforts.
She consistently provides useful and up to date information about the trip, and always checks in after we get home to see how things went and if everything was up to our standards.

I have referred numerous people to Kristi over the years and I will continue to use her as our travel agent because of the excellent service she provides.

Reviewed By Rachel - Robbinsdale, MN | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
We are SO glad we went through a travel agent for our honeymoon - Ali was able to find us a great deal and offer features that we otherwise wouldn't have known about! She also provided some great feedback and inside knowledge, having been to the resort. Her expertise and personal experience were invaluable to us and made us so much more comfortable and at ease while on our honeymoon.

MAUI ~ Trip of a lifetime!

Reviewed By Jeff B - Woodbury, MN | Traveled to Maui Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
This was the second time that we have used Kristi for one of our vacation trips. Every trip has been nothing short of spectacular! For both our Costa Rica trip and our Maui trip she found us wonderful airfare and hotel along with a great price! One of hotels she personally stayed at so we both knew what to expect, which I think is a huge bonus. She also mentioned some changes to some events that we had planned and recommended to book early before they filled up thanks to her. Kristi has been so great to work with and we won't hesitate one bit to use her again on our next vacation!

Honeymoon Trip

Reviewed By Brock - St. Paul, MN | Traveled to Playa Del Carmen ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
After spending weeks trying to plan our own honeymoon to no avail, my wife and I decided to try using a travel agent and wound up emailing Kristi. From the get go, she was incredibly responsive (always emailed us back within a day, most of the time within a few hours), and made the entire process a breeze. We just got back last week, and everything was absolutely perfect. She had everything planned down to transportation to and from the airport/hotel. I can't tell you how nice it was to get to the airport, have a ride waiting to drive us to the hotel, then on the day we left to have another ride waiting out front. We literally did not have to worry about a single thing. She was extremely helpful in making sure that we had the perfect honeymoon planned, and even checked in before we left to make sure we had everything we needed. I would HIGHLY recommend Kristi if you are looking for some help in planning a vacation. We would definitely use her again for our next trip. Thanks Kristi!

My family has planned our trips with Kristi going on about 5 years now. She is excellent! She's helped with everything from our annual family trip to my sister's destination wedding! It doesn't matter how many questions we may have she is always more than happy to answer and is very quick! She is the absolute best!

I usually start to research and look into new places to travel to with my family around May/June...Kristi gives me all sorts of information for the price ranges we are looking to stay around. She is EXTREMELY helpful in the planning process! We usually travel with no fewer than 7-8 people and have had as many as 20 on a family trip and I think over 40 people for the destination wedding.

January 2017 we traveled to Puerto Vallarta on Kristi's recommendation and the property was beautiful and suited all of my families needs and wants. I wouldn't want to work with anyone but her!

Reviewed By Sarah - Los Angeles, CA | Traveled to Puerto Vallarta ~ Jalisco ~ Mexico
Kristi was excellent. She took the time to make sure she had all the information she needed to find us the perfect trip. I really love that she didn't try to upsell us or push us into something outside our parameters. We had a limited budget and she found us exactly what we asked for, and it was much classier than I had imagined we could get! Super friendly, super attentive, extremely knowledgeable.

worry free,no surprises.

Reviewed By Glenerd - Baldwin, Wi | Traveled to Mexico ~ Mexico
My wife and I have worked with Kristi for a couple of years now. She has been very knowledgeable about the destinations we have chosen to visit. Kristi knows my wife and I lean toward the higher class 5-star hotels by the visits we have had with her, so she always has suggestions where we should stay. Once we pick out a destinations she plans the flight, transfers to hotel, rooms at the hotels to our standards,travel insurance, everything we need for a care-free trip with no surprises. When we book with her we know ahead of time what we will get when we arrive and what it will cost. Sometimes she plans a trip for us that ends up costing more then what we thought and we decide not to go. This doesn't upset Kristi and she is always happy to help us the next time we decide to travel. I know you can plan trips on the internet, but we like knowing exactly the type of room we are getting before we go. We love working with Kristi and would recommend her to anyone who likes to travel care-free

Eliminated the stress, hassle, and risk for us!

Reviewed By mark e. - lakeville, mn | Traveled to Mexico
Ali did an awesome job for us. We were a family of 4 traveling outside of the US for the first time. One of the reasons we decided to use a travel agents was to minimize risk - forgetting passports, not knowing to arrange shuttles, currency exchange, what hotel would suit us best - these were all concerns of ours.

Not only did Ali have the answers and guidance for the risks above, but she took all the hassle and stress out of the entire planning process.

There were no hiccups, no surprises, and no issues with our trip - and we had an awesome vacation!

Thanks Ali.

Best Agent Ever!

Reviewed By Jamie L - Omaha, NE | Traveled to Ireland ~ Europe
Kristi is the best travel agent I have ever used. She listens to what I want and uses every resource to come up with the best plan for me. I've had the best vacations using her as my agent. I've asked her to plan 3 vacations for me now and recommended her to friends. She helped with my first trip to New Zealand, getting me set up for all the Lord of the Rings adventures as well as so many interesting hikes and journeys around the New Zealand landscape. She helped me with my second trip to New Zealand where I also spent time in Australia. When one of my connecting flights got switched she was right there to help so I didn't get stranded. We recently went to Ireland and although the Scotland part of our trip was planned by the band we were going with, I didn't like their travel agent at all and switched to Kristi for our personal portion, knowing she would get exactly what I wanted. I wouldn't go anywhere else.

Mazatlan Trip

Reviewed By EMT - Minneapolis Minnesota | Traveled to Mazatlan ~ Sinaloa ~ Mexico
The hotel check in didn't go as smoothly as I had hoped. No one was there to direct us to the "elite" guest area, so we first ended up in the regular check in lines and the desk clerk got perturbed with me because I was the wrong area and wasting his time when many other people were waiting.

The other thing was that we didn't receive the " carnival" basket in our room that everyone else received.

Kristi Mackedanz responded:
Thank you for letting me know about these issues, it’s always good to know, and try to fix. We submitted the request for the extra amenities, and I did follow up with the hotel manager as soon as I was made aware, so hopefully they made everything right! I hope the rest of your trip turned out fabulous, and I look forward to working with you again in the future!!

Great Experience

Reviewed By Curtis - Raleigh, NC | Traveled to Kona, Hawaii ~ Hawaii ~ USA
Kristi was put under the gun with just a couple of weeks to help me organize a trip to Hawaii, and she came through like a champ. Normally I do all my own reservations and research, but it became too complicated when I started adding Pearl Harbor when we were staying on another island. Kristi took care of the flight to Kona, then to Honolulu and back home. She also had a car service pick us up, a hotel for two nights on the Big Island....all things no way I could figure out under pressure. It was fabulous!!!

Kristi is fantastic!

Reviewed By Bo - Warrens, WI | Traveled to Europe
Kristi has worked on two trips for me since the beginning of the year: one to the Dominican and the other to the U.K. (England and Scotland) and Ireland. She planned our Dominican trip because she was the travel agent for a wedding I attended, and she did a great job for that trip. Because I don't live in The Twin Cities and I knew that Kristi tended to specialize in Caribbean trips, I tried to contact a couple of other travel agents near me to help me plan the UK/Ireland vacation. These other travels agents either didn't get back to me at all or contacted me later than I had expected. I ended up contacting Kristi, relatively last minute, to help me plan the UK/Ireland trip for four people, with varying destinations towards the end of the trip. Kristi was exceptional in planning and found us excellent flights and lodging for our trip. She is extremely responsive. I will be using her travel expertise again for my future trips.

A Beautiful, Relaxing, Vacation!

Reviewed By Cindy - So. St. Paul, MN | Traveled to Mazatlan ~ Sinaloa ~ Mexico
Kristi was so very helpful with her knowledge of Mazatlan, Mexico. We knew what to expect, where to go and the highlights of this area prior to going because of the time she took with us in her office. As our trip approached we received information via email on the procedure of customs, who would connect us to the hotel and even tips on how to pack. Kristi was always available for a phone counsel if we had questions or would get back to us quickly as possible if she was unavailable. I will use Kristi again in my next venture as she made my vacation worry and effort free for me. All I had to do was get on the plane!
Thanks Kristi,

Wonderful Wedding/Honeymoon

Reviewed By Jonathan - Fairfax, VA | Traveled to Playa Del Carmen ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Kristi was AMAZING. She planned our Wedding week and Honeymoon to Playa del Carmen, Mexico. She went above and beyond to help us. She played liaison between us and the resort. She assisted us in questions and concerns to get sorted out even after we were introduced (via email) to the wedding coordinator. This to me, was above when she needed to do. Even after everything was set in stone and paid for, she still kept in regular contact to make sure everything was transitioning smoothly. We are considering a tropical vacation later this year with people from Buffalo, Ny, the Twin Cities, MN, Denver, CO and Washington DC. I will definitely contact Kristi to coordinate and set up our resort!!!!
