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.”
