October 2018 Issue

Dear Friends,

Love stories. Our collection overflows with them - from romantic turndowns and fairytale weddings (couples); to mindful, self-care gestures (individuals).

In this issue, we celebrate the real-life love stories that, with the help of our hoteliers, unfold every day at our properties. Fun. Uplifting. And warming to the heart. Enjoy.

Warm Regards,
Jaj and Anthony

CLAYOQUOT'S GIFT OF LOVE

Clayoquot Wilderness Lodge

Unprompted, Clayoquot's talented staff members built a wedding arch made entirely of driftwood and natural elements. Secured atop Ivanhoe Lounge, where the ceremony took place, the effect was absolutely stunning. Clayoquot later gifted the piece of driftwood, with a heart etched in it, to the lovely couple. So sweet.

SELF CARE, SELF LOVE AT GOLDEN DOOR

Golden Door

"I came here for the first time," writes Golden Door guest, Michelle G. "I walked through the golden door and down the bridge and cried deeply to learn the evil spirits would stay behind as I turned the corner into the sanctuary. Inside I found myself. I shifted, opened, found love and compassion and forgiveness - I found strength - and I am now at peace. When I left, I felt ready to go through the golden door. Because I found myself. Thank you with deep love."

ROMANTIC POOL RESIDENCE AT VELAA

Velaa Private Island

Everything about Velaa Private Island is romantic. But the ultimate seduction comes in the island's remote - and oh-so-romantic - pool residence. Accessible only by boat, the one-bedroom villa is suspended above the lagoon. With uninterrupted views of the ocean.

HOT TUB FOR TWO AT TIERRA ATACAMA

WILDLY ROMANTIC SAFARIS

The Safari Collection: Solio Lodge

Ever since Robert Redford flew Meryl Streep over the breathtaking landscape of Kenya in 'Out of Africa,' safaris have been synonymous with romantic travel. The image of a handsome leading man washing his lady's hair riverside while reciting poetry - hippos as backdrop. Romantic safaris are brought to real life at The Safari Collection. Especially Solio Lodge, which skips televisions and leaves connecting to nature. And each other.

MAGICAL KATIKIES

Katikies Santorini

Santorini is magical any time of year. And on any occasion. But for weddings, Sun Rocks Santorini brings couples, like recent bride-and-groom, Jessica and Darren, together.

THE GREENWICH LOVES STAYCATIONS

Greenwich Hotel

The Greenwich Hotel loves hosting locals - especially romantic staycationers celebrating an engagement, anniversary, or just looking to reconnect. And the hotel's studio suites - with their large marble baths, French doors and Juliet balcony overlooking the courtyard provide the perfect setting. For special occasions, the staff always sends champagne and custom-made chocolates from LA Burdick. Yum.

ANNANDALE ROMANTICALLY REMOTE

Annandale

Not only do couples celebrate into their own secluded and romantic house. They can, if choose, go hours even days without seeing another guest. That's because privacy is a top priority. So much so that couples can fly to their own private ridge line by helicopter. For a memorable picnic for two.

LAUCALA ISLAND REWRITES ROMANCE

Laucala Island

There is dinner for two. By the sea. And then there is Laucala Island's version of a magical, romantic, dinner for two. Extraordinary wine. Decadent food. Sexy tablescapes and décor. And unrivaled natural beauty. Sigh.

JUST THE TWO OF US AT SHEEN FALLS

Sheen Falls

Guy and Roxana came all the way from California to Sheen Falls Lodge. Where, in a secluded corner of the gardens overlooking Kenmare Bay, they exchanged vows. The ceremony - and day - was captured by local photographer Nick Cavanaugh who, following the ceremony, drove the couple around the Ring of Kerry. And in the evening, returned them to the hotel for a candlelit dinner overlooking the waterfalls. 'Just the two of us' indeed.

ROMANTIC CITY, ROMANTIC HOTEL ESPRIT SAINT GERMAIN

Esprit Germain

Paris is romance. Loved by lovers - with its leafy parks, narrow streets and scenic strolls along the Seine. And no hotel does couples better than Hotel Esprit Saint Germain, on the residential Left Bank. Warm. Inviting. With complimentary wines and champagne. And did we mention the turndown. Heart.

LAKE KORA INDUCES STILLNESS

Lake Kora

Along with its timbered houses, history and stunning natural beauty, Lake Kora is most about stillness. Perfect for romance, as couples glide silently, by canoe, onto the glass-surface lake. Toasting their ride with top-shelf champagne.

EUSTATIA FOR COUPLES TOO

Eustatia Island

While private Eustatia Island is the perfect family-and-friends destination, couples appreciate its romantic flair too. And ability to get away from 'the crowd' for a private hike, watersport activity, or even breakfast in bed. The new (post-hurricane) Eustatia comes with a white décor. And hardwood floors. Can't wait to experience.

THE PROPOSAL BY BALLYFIN

Ballyfin

Proposals are a specialty at Ballyfin. And the property's tower is key. After a lunch and pony/carriage around the estate, Ballyfin's Lionel stops at the tower, details its history, then gives the couple a key to unlock the door and climb to the top to see the spectacular view. Hidden inside the fireplace - champagne, complete with glasses to toast the happy moment. Lionel then returns the newly engaged couple to a waiting team on the steps of the hotel. So sweet.
