It’s Bermuda Time!

Fairmont Hamilton Princess Infinity Pool

It’s Bermuda time! For some reason I never think to recommend Bermuda as a weekend getaway.  But that is about to change.  It is just a 90 minute flight from New York and customs are even handled there so when you arrive back into the USA you don’t need to wait in a line. The island is friendly and clean with gorgeous beaches and incredible snorkeling and diving.  Plus some of the best golf in the world. In fact it might be better to stay for a week!

Not to mention all of the great hotels. The Fairmont Hamilton Princess has just undergone a major renovation with a new beach club and Marcus Samuelsson restaurant about to open.  And Rosewood Tucker’s Point has always been a favorite. As the weather is (hopefully) turning warmer, it is time to think about Bermuda!

We love hearing from happy clients and we have some now at the Four Seasons Chiang Mai.  Here is what they had to say:

“The property is like a living postcard, it is absolutely beautiful. So far everything has been going great and I really enjoyed my time in Bangkok. Tonight I go to the Night Bazaar in Chiang Mai then tomorrow I go trekking and finish the day off with a massage. The last day before my flight I get to ride the elephants. Thanks for helping me to make such great memories.”

Nothing is better than our clients appreciating our hard work and loving the same amazing hotels we do.

Are you a Belmond Junkie?

Belmond Hotel CarusoAre you a Belmond Junkie?  You probably are and didn’t know it.  That’s because Orient Express Hotels has changed their name to Belmond.  They tell us Belmond comes from the Latin word meaning beautiful world.  Well they certainly have some of the most beautiful hotels in the world.  Each hotel within the Belmond collection could stand alone as an icon, and all together this compilation is comprised of many of the world’s best.  Each property is unique and completely true to its destination.  Our clients have always loved Orient Express Hotels and would return to the same properties year after year.  Now under the Belmond name it is finally clear that all of these amazing resorts are part of the same family.  We are just waiting for all the Belmond junkies out there to identify themselves!

What other brand could have you sipping Caipirinhas in Copacabana, enjoying Bellinis at the best pool in Venice, having Pisco Sours at the gate of Machu Picchu and observing the best game in Botswana while drinking Sundowners? Take a look at their newest video we’re already packing our suitcases!

Feel Like You are With Family at Le Sereno in St. Barts

Le Sereno

Le Sereno

Just got back from the most fantastic trip to St. Barts! I am completely in love with Le Sereno.  General Manager, Samy Ghachem does everything possible to make each guest feel special and your stay is more like visiting a warm friend than being at a hotel. Starting with the complimentary VIP Service at the St. Martin airport and ending with your personal goodbye, every aspect of this hotel is absolute perfection.

When we landed in St. Martin, someone was waiting for us at the gate.  He took our passports to get stamped and handed us our boarding passes for the flight to St. Barts.  We got drinks in the bar while he gathered our suitcases and went through customs for us…. I never waited in one line…it was a dream. And Le Sereno provides this service free of charge!

The design of the hotel is simply breathtaking – lots of wood and natural colors with the beautiful pool overlooking the lagoon, both the same shade of vibrant blue.  Designer Christian Liaigre has created the perfect setting for couples or families. The minimalist design is simple but sophisticated and allows the natural beauty of the surroundings shine though.

The restaurant serves the most delicious granola I have ever tasted (feeling in serious withdrawal now) and the eggplant chips with tzatziki sauce are completely addicting. My son played with the hotel cat, Cookie and a large group of guests and staff even went out together dancing in Gustavia on Friday night.

I can’t think of a better place to relax and enjoy some fun in the sun.
