Belmond Cap Juluca, Anguilla

Stunning, breathtaking, otherworldly: these are just a few words that come to mind when I describe Belmond Cap Juluca to my clients. One of the Caribbean’s most beloved and iconic hotels, this legendary property reopened its doors last winter after a change in ownership and major recovery effort from 2017’s devastating hurricane season. I recently visited to  see the enhancements firsthand.

Baha Mar, The Bahamas

I snuck away to the Bahamas with some colleagues this winter to check out Baha Mar, a new and exciting resort development that recently opened on Nassau. Comprised of three hotels, 40 bars and restaurants, a huge ESPA Spa, a comprehensive kids club program, and the largest casino in the Caribbean, this mind-boggling complex is best described as the tropics meet Vegas!

Enchantment Resort, Sedona, Arizona

Enchantment Resort has been on my bucket list forever.  Why?  Because I’ve sent countless clients for 0ver 10 years, and the consistently rave reviews and instagrammable photos made it clear to me this was a hotel I needed to visit.  There was no question when I sat down to map out a two week trek from Las Vegas to Phoenix for my family this summer, this iconic Southwest property was a not-to-miss stop.

Four Seasons Nevis

My latest summer travels took me to the charming Caribbean island of Nevis.  The main purpose of my visit was to stay at the Four Seasons Nevis and learn more about their exciting renovations, which are already well underway.  I’m a big fan of the property so had been closely monitoring news of their upcoming enhancements and couldn’t wait to get a sneak peek at what’s in store for my clients beginning this December.

Park Hyatt St. Kitts

I’m writing this blog pool-side at the Park Hyatt St. Kitts, taking in the views of Nevis in the distance.  Heaven!  The Park Hyatt St. Kitts is one of the newest luxury properties to open in the Caribbean and Park Hyatt’s first resort hotel in the Caribbean.  They opened their doors in time for festive business last November and have quickly put themselves on the map as an exciting, new 5 star option for the Caribbean luxury traveler.

The Dorchester, London

London….one of the greatest cities in the world for five star hotels.  How does a luxury travel advisor pick one for an upcoming visit? Not an easy decision, but I knew exactly where I wanted to stay when I found out I had plans to visit the city. The Dorchester is one of London’s most iconic properties and had long been on my radar screen, so I jumped at the chance to book a room there!
