Alessandra Ambrosio is one of the most sought after models in the fashion industry. It’s hardly surprising to hear that she would have racked up a few frequent flyer miles over the years. Her destination of choice? The beach. Of course, that's also not surprising considering the Brazilian model grew up by the beach and even launched her own swimwear line GAL Floripa. Recently we chatted with Ambrosio, fresh off a stay at the Breathless Cancun Soul Resort & Spa in Mexico, to find out what she looks for in a getaway.
What do you look for in a luxury vacation?
“I like places that make me feel like a home away from home, and they for sure need to have great activities, like beach tennis, volleyball, jet skiing or paddle boarding as I like to stay active while on vacation.”
What’s your ideal beach getaway?
“It is all about relaxation for me. I love to wake up and jump in the ocean, take an afternoon nap by the water, and feel the breeze and the sounds of the ocean, and there is nothing better than spending time with your loved ones on the beach and watching the sunset.”
