She’s plan­ning a trip with friends there this sum­mer and an­other with rel­a­tives.

When Turn­bull is at Esper­anza, she’s got plenty to do. “They’ve got a fab­u­lous fit­ness cen­tre there, so ev­ery morn­ing, I go and work out.”

It in­cludes a num­ber of classes, such as beach boot camp, zumba, yoga, car­dio and dance.

“There’s also re­ally one of the nicest spas that I have ever been to,” says Turn­bull. “It’s ab­so­lutely sen­sa­tional.”

The spa in­cludes 14 treat­ment rooms, an ex­pan­sive soak­ing pool, a pri­vate sun­bathing area and an out­door shower. “You can get a mas­sage on the beach with waves crash­ing, or you can get a mas­sage in one of their lovely treat­ments rooms — and the tech­ni­cians are just fan­tas­tic,” says Turn­bull.

Esper­anza is one of a col­lec­tion of con­nected re­sorts. Buy­ers with frac­tional own­er­ship at Esper­anza can trade in their time for a stay at an­other prop­erty, says Turn­bull.

“We have traded and went to the ski re­sort, which was amaz­ing,” she says. “I haven’t re­ally traded for any­thing else be­cause I love Esper­anza so much.”
