I love the bathtubs – and how they fill in 60 seconds. The beautiful Redflower bath amenities and snack baskets in the rooms (with yummy Tate cookies). I love the privacy and green of the courtyard. And the beds and pillows, so sumptuous.
Rising star Julie Anne Juba, of Jet Set Getaways, is all about detail. And location. “You must stay at a hotel that has the BEST location,” she says. And when in Rome – Juba personally has a favorite…Portrait Roma. “Portrait is in the heart of Via Condotti, owned by the Ferragamo family and located above […]
There’s everything to love about Laucala Island, so it’s hard to narrow down what I love most. But when pressed, I love the privacy of this Fijian hideaway. The exuberant smiles of the staff – so genuine. And the perfect balance of pampering. From the moment you’re greeted by the happy bula-bula-ing staff, there’s nothing you […]
For nearly a decade, luxury travel advisor Miriam Geiser has been crafting romantic itineraries for discerning honeymooners. One of her favorite getaways: Hotel Le Toiny on St Barth. “Le Toiny is a very special place. Situated in a secluded corner of the jet-set island of St. Barth, it’s easy to unwind here. The beautifully appointed […]
I thought the private infinity pools (and spaghetti aux truffles) were the ultimate bliss-out at Hotel Le Toiny on St. Barth. And then came the “St Barth Blossom.” Designed by Ligne St Barth, this new (but original) flower massage features the yellow-orange calendula flower, known since the Middle Ages for its cosmetic and medicinal properties.

Magical is the word I forever use to describe reaching Laucala Island. Fiji (unless you live in Australia or New Zealand), is a long-haul by anyone`s standards – a ten-hour flight from Los Angeles; longer from New York. So after finally landing on Fiji’s mainland and stretching out tired limbs and backs, it’s magical to […]
“I love the exuberance of the Clayoquot Wilderness Resort team, the peaceful sounds at night, the lights of the sky, the excitement of seeing whales…and the heart-throbbing of seeing a bear looking for food along the shore line.”
I love Paris – the leafy parks, twisty streets, outdoor cafes, and of course, the endless chocolate crepes. But my absolute favorite attraction in Paris isn’t a tangible (or expected) one. It is a scent – the subtle, yet-oh-so-intoxicating-Parisian aromathérapie that permeates the hallways at Hotel Esprit St Germain, called Cedre de L’Atlas, L’Artisan. Heaven.
PALAZZO AVINO When Mariella Avino, managing director of Palazzo Avino (formerly Palazzo Sasso), first told me the world-renowned, five-star hotel would officially assume its family name, my thought was, “But of course…” I’ve been sojourning to Palazzo Avino, and the tiny gem town of Ravello on Italy’s Amalfi Coast since 1997 – the year the […]
HOTEL LE TOINY St. Barth – the tiny, Caribbean island, where Smart cars zip along windy roads, locals tout fresh baguettes under one arm and yippy small dogs under the other, and flashing green-cross signs signal pharmacy – could easily be Paris. But the endless blue-green waters and towering palms remind, that ’no, we’re not in Paris.’ […]
