My first glimpse of the now-opened Royal Blues Hotel was on a hard-hat tour, but even then the artistic vision of its creator was apparent. Designed by film (Blue Jasmine) and Broadway (Big Fish, Bullets Over Broadway, Cinderella) producer Edward Walson, the hotel, just 12 rooms, is a showcase of his passion for art, wine, […]
I love the changing seasons. Especially September. Perhaps it’s the upstate New York girl in me, but I love the crisper days, cooler, good-for-sleeping nights, and the brilliant orange-red-crimson hues. I love, too, that within our JCR collection, it’s always summer, or autumn, or winter, or spring, somewhere. I love that as we are looking toward leaf-peeping and […]
Paris in summer… Springtime earns all of the accolades for Paris – and rightly so. Spring is one of the city’s most gorgeous times. But summer is a fabulous time to visit too, as noted in this travel clip from the Katie Couric Show (featuring Virtuoso) which I’m loving and adoring. Speed to 4:21 to hear […]
On a recent trip to Ireland, to see clients Sheen Falls Lodge and Ballyfin, followed by a trade-symposium in Berlin, I found myself in the `what-to-pack’ quandary, familiar to so many of us in the travel industry. My dilemma was a specific cocktail party and specific pleated dress I wanted to wear. But how to keep […]
“I love putting on the wellies (yes, provided) and walking onto the misty glen to ‘fly’ the powerful red-tail hawks and falcons. There are very few places left in the world where one can experience the authentic and ancient (dating date to 2000BC) sport of falconry. I love, too, the roaring waterfall views from Sheen […]
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.
Garden tai-chi in the early a.m. – the lush green of the grass, intoxicating scent of the flowers, and chirping birds. I love the peace and tranquility of The BodyHoliday. The smoothie bar – and endless arm-leg-butt-toning, spinning and yoga classes….
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 a few blissful days in January, I escaped the ‘polar vortex’ blanketing much of the U.S., and found sunshine. And summertime on New Zealand’s North Island and that country’s oldest, still-working sheep station, Wharekauhau Lodge. I loved the moodiness of the sky, the mountains dipping to the sea, the wind, the staff, the sheep of […]
