Embrace the Slow Life

Ah, getting away from it all – there’s nothing like it. But what if you really need to slow down life’s rollercoaster, step off, and spend a week or two gently unwinding. Welcome to our pick of slow-living ideas that will make you really appreciate the natural world at its most alluring.

Amangiri, Utah, USA

The super-luxury and soul-soothing silence at Amangiri at Canyon Point, Utah is something special. People who know about the 900 acres of vastness go there to be – and to feel – remote, and with the eerie beauty of the Utah/Arizona terrain for miles and miles all around, this wilderness feels nothing short of humbling. Its crisp edges of polished rock are redolent of Native American architecture. The fantastic centrepiece pool curves around a rock formation, and the Aman Spa has all you need to empty your mind – the same for being able to view the desert from most beds or baths. The modernist suites offer an inspiring welcome to this most dramatically secluded setting.

Virtuoso travelers receive:

  • Daily continental breakfast for two guests per bedroom, served in restaurant

Something you can do here that takes you right away from everyday stresses and strains is swimming with Sumba’s horses, and after that exhilaration then it’s time to explore the Nihioka, a truly blissful spa. We can also recommend stand-up paddling through slow-moving local rivers as they wind past sultry Sumba villages and hidden local waterfalls. It’s as surreally relaxing as it sounds.

Annandale, New Zealand

On Banks Peninsula, clinging to the edge of New Zealand’s South Island, are the four distinctive villas created by the Annandale farm; it almost defines getting away from it all. Despite the stunning coastline and breathtaking views of the glittering Pacific Ocean, you’re on a working 4000-acre farm where the large grazing herds of Angus cattle and Romney sheep dot the landscape of rocky outcrops and wind-blown tussock grass. We absolutely love the old fashioned veranda of the restored 19th century Homestead, which can sleep up to 12, and has its own heated pool and even a private tennis court. There’s also masses to enjoy outside, including mountain-biking, kayaking, hiking, cooking classes and nature cruises.

andBeyond Sossusvlei Desert Lodge, Namibia

This is the only private reserve in the Sossusvlei area featuring the dunes of Namibia on the world’s oldest living desert, so when you’re in the lodge you’re at the centre of 31,000 acres of pristine nothingness. The utter tranquility and extraordinary quality of light makes this area magical by day while at night the sky is so clear – it’s near an internationally recognised Dark Sky Reserve – that the stargazing through a powerful Celestron telescope in the Observatory will keep you up til dawn. The accommodation is all about sustainable luxury: 10 beautifully appointed stone-and-glass suites offer shaded verandas, private plunge pools, and large retractable skylights above the beds. Other signature features include a sunrise-view gym and sunset-facing wellness centre.

Titilaka, Peru

At an altitude of 3800 metres above sea level, the air on the shores of Lake Titicaca where Titilaka Lodge is tucked away is crisp and wholesome. It will leave you thoroughly refreshed while exploring this dramatic and enormous stretch of water. There’s island-hopping on the lake itself, excursions from the boathouse on the peninsula, unforgettable birdwatching, and Sillustani – the large and important pre-Hispanic funeral ground and archaeological complex where Peru and Bolivia come together in the Andes. The rooms, each with a splendid lake view, are contemporary and sumptuous. Almost all the lovely staff are locals, and the fare is delicious, seasonal and satisfying. You’ll have amazing days and sleep like a log…

The wild of New Zealand beckons once more, a country whose spectacular islands and bays have felt unmoored from the rest of the world for far too long. The essence of traveling far and wide is immediately felt in the journey alone, and we promise it’s worth every second it takes to arrive. There is simply nowhere else that compares, whether you’re an adrenaline seeker, a foodie, reconnecting with family, or just want to admire some of the most spectacular landscapes on Earth. New Zealand is ready for you, so what are you waiting for?

First things first, these properties alone will tempt you and your loved ones to indulge in luxurious and unique stays.

The Farm at Cape Kidnappers, Hawkes Bay

This place is a treasure trove for golfers, naturalists and wellness seekers, a working farm whose views over Hawke’s Bay will put the most troubled minds at ease. We love the Owner’s Cottage which houses up to 8 with private in-house dining upon request. Expect private beach picnics, Kiwi discovery walks and night tours of Cape Sanctuary.

Hapuku Lodge + Tree Houses, Kaikoura

Sitting pretty at the base of the Kaikoura Seaward Mountain Range, these gorgeous tree houses are the most luxurious option along the coastline and offer elevated views atop a native Kanuka grove. An immersive venue for families and couples that will take your breath away after a day spent whale watching. The passion for food here will be clear from their attention to detail with every meal.

Annandale, Christchurch

For standalone private luxury villas that house up to 12 guests at a time, look no further. Each of these retreats bring undeniable character to your stay, with a choice from seascape’s contemporary glasshouse, scrubby bay embraced between two hills, the rural isolation of shepherd’s cottage, the magic of returning to the homestead built in 1880, or the stables lofty 2-bedroom apartment.

Minaret Station Alpine Lodge, Wanaka

As part of a 50,000 acre working farm, this is one of the purest and authentic lodges you’ll find in the high country, accessible only by helicopter as you arrive in style. The vastness of this glacial alpine valley is magnificent, home to remote rivers and mountain streams. Enjoy nights in your private chalet with a hot tub on deck.

Park Hyatt Auckland

You simply can’t miss the energy of New Zealand’s capital, and Park Hyatt delivers with its spacious suites bathed in light with floor-to-ceiling windows. The hotel overlooks the Waitematā Harbour with access to an infinity pool and an impeccable restaurant using only local produce.

New Zealand Experiences

Once you’ve landed on a beautiful base, the next step is choosing from one of many exhilarating experiences, taking it at whatever pace suits you best. This country prides itself on meeting the needs of every type of traveller, from wildlife spotting and horse-riding, to wine-tasting, star-gazing, alpine lake rafting and hot-air ballooning. From our point of view, you simply can’t leave New Zealand without an aerial helicopter experience, where you can appreciate the masterful designs of Nature from up high. Traverse world-class golf courses, test your limits with gruelling mountain-biking or 4×4 off-road adventures, enjoy blissful days fly-fishing, and be sure to arrange a Maori cultural experience to learn more about their storied history upon these shores.

After this dormant period, we are thrilled to start planning your dream return to New Zealand! Before the rest of the world catches on, take the leap and be one of the first to witness the splendour of this stunning destination from North to South.
