Belmond Casa de Sierra Nevada, San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, British Columbia, Canada

Reminiscent of the turn of the 20th century, Clayoquot is anything but a rustic, woodsy escape. Instead, its safari-like tents and interior Victorian-era decor hark back to a simpler time. The resort, surrounded by one of the last untouched rain forests on Earth, is accessible only by seaplane or a 30-minute boat ride from the closest town, Tofino. The Luxury […]

Fogo Island Inn, Newfoundland, Canada

Perched on what feels like the edge of the world, Fogo Island Inn is an island off an island surrounded by North Atlantic sea.

Sandy Lane Hotel, Barbados

There is no water clearer or sand softer than in Barbados — and Sandy Lane has brought top-class service and amenities to the island since 1961. The signature pink hue still reigns supreme; you can tell exactly where Sandy Lane is from the beach by its bright-pink pool umbrellas and towels. Relaxation is a top priority here; the 7,500-sq-ft-pool has […]

The Shore Club, Turks and Caicos

The Shore Club marks a new chapter for Turks and Caicos tourism — it’s the first and only hotel built on Long Bay Beach, only minutes from downtown Grace Bay.
