Pure Portuguese Heaven

With its Atlantic seaboard, strong culture, beautiful terrain and warm hospitality, you’ll want to spend some of your year relaxing and playing in Portugal. Come with us as we crest the Pyrenees in search of the most alluring destinations…

Herdade da Malhadinha Nova

There’s the option to simply relax by the pool, enjoy a treatment in the spa and being a Relais & Chateaux property, you know that the food and wine is going to be exquisite! If you’re looking for something more active, there is so much to do, from simply exploring the estate to horse-riding, archery, paintball, karting, hot air ballooning, quad-biking and tons of absorbing activities, designing and making things.  This charming, rural location pretty much guarantees a break from the noises and duties of everyday life back home.

Conrad Algarve is situated in Quinta do Lago, a breathtaking resort close to the idyllic Ria Formosa Nature Park and Atlantic coastline. The spa is excellent and so is the choice of sustenance, which includes a Michelin-starred restaurant right here – Gusto by Heinz Beck – among the six eateries and bars. Activities on offer range from the gentle, such as olive oil-tasting and clam picking, to the exhilarating sea-spray of private catamarans.

Virtuoso travellers receive:

Vila Vita Parc

There’s no shortage of things to do here, all in an environment of five-star decadence. The pools, private beach and gardens are beautiful, and the wellness and beauty facilities exceptional. There’s also plenty to explore nearby in terms of history and culture, but if you just want to idle your holiday days between holding a tennis racquet one moment and a cocktail the next then no worries; you deserve it. And kids of all ages won’t see you for (chalk) dust because they’ll be enjoying themselves in the crèche, kids’ park or sport-filled teens’ club. Two Michelin-starred restaurants make every evening a gastronomic indulgence.

Meanwhile, for a different kind of body temple, the spa with indoor pool and treatment rooms is superb. Cycling, kayaking, hiking, helicopter tours and ceramics decorating are all on offer; but back to the wine… the wine-and-dine Douro River cruises are a unique feature.

Quinta da Comporta

An understated boutique retreat, blending into the beautiful surroundings of the unspoilt Atlantic coastline. And, since it picked up a Condé Nast Traveler Reader’s Award in 2021, independently verified as well up to expectations. This lovely place has a particular air of authenticity, clear in the three-bedroom pool villas inspired by the architectural lines of Comporta’s traditional bungalows. They’re built for slow-living relaxation. Seasonal dishes with the best natural ingredients are how you’ll eat here, with vegetables from the garden used in inspired, simple cooking. The 40m pool is solar-heated, while two rustic, barn-like buildings house Oryza Spa and Mar D’Arrozal restaurant.

Grand House Algarve

The stunning Grand House will give you, in its own words, a taste of ‘Authenticity, Simplicity and Soul’ in Vila Real de Santo António, the most easterly town on the Algarve. There are 30 sun-drenched rooms and suites, all of which have decor that pays homage to the natural richness of the surroundings. You’re transported to an opulent yet unpretentious way of life, boasting a prime waterfront position that’s well away from the hoi-polloi. In fact, if the tranquillity of bird-watching is your thing, you’re going to love the location at the mouth of the river Guadiana and the natural wetland reserves around it.

Discover the Riches of Africa

We’re exploring the vastness and the contrasts of the African sub-continent this week, featuring six ways to engage with wonderful places, experiences and cultures we think you’ll adore…

Sterrekopje, Franschhoek, South Africa

So, it’s not a hotel – they’re emphatic about that – but this is certainly a place where you’ll relax and unwind entirely, while reconnecting to nature and food so fresh that it could have been harvested just minutes before you tuck in. Sterrekopje is a remote farm nestling in the foothills of the Franschhoek mountains, where over many years the natural balance of the land has been restored and cherished to make it as fertile and sustainable as possible. The biodiverse abundance means 100 different items of fresh produce are grown on-site, miles away from anywhere. You’ll be staying in an elegantly comfortable farmhouse or one of the cottages enfolded by lush nature, and while you enjoy the sanctuary you’ll be reconnecting with your soul – and looking forward to another leisurely dinner under the stars.

Eagle Island Lodge, Okavango Delta, Botswana

There are few places to match the Okavango Delta wetlands to experience a magical and satisfying safari. It’s at its very best from May to September – so think about your trip next year, maybe – when you can glide silently through the natural water channels in a traditional-style canoe, with hippos wallowing either side of you and sea eagles soaring above. This Belmond lodge, is, as you might expect, on its own private island, and the dozen beautiful tented rooms have high ceilings, huge beds and their own plunge pools. They have privacy and wonderful outlooks in equal measure. By staying here you’ll be helping projects to harmlessly separate local livestock from endangered local predators, and to save Africa’s wild dogs.

Virtuoso travelers receive:

For 2023:

  • Daily Full Breakfast for up to two guests per bedroom
  • Private dining experience for up to two guests once during stay, served on the balcony of your room or at a private location within the lodge (must have minimum value of $100 USD equivalent)
  • Early Check-In / Late Check-Out, subject to availability
  • Complimentary Wi-Fi

Serra Cafema, Kaokoland, Namibia

It’s not just animals that are rare, fascinating and in need of traveller support; it’s people too. Namibia’a Himba are some of this stunning country’s last semi-nomads. This is their wide-ranging home, an untouched wilderness of silent deserts and rushing rivers where they have learned to adapt to life alongside everything from oryx and tiny chameleons to crocodiles and zebra. Staying here helps to maintain and protect the delicate balance between all of Serra Cafema’s inhabitants. In exchange, you’ll return each day from all kinds of guided safaris – boat, walking, even quad-biking – to sultry luxury in one of eight suites built from wood, canvas and thatch, with elevated decks to watch the orangeness of the sinking sun intensify… having put away a hearty and local supper.

andBeyond Bateleur Camp, Masai Mara, Kenya

Reflecting the ambience of 1920s and 1930s classic Kenyan safaris, andBeyond Bateleur Camp boasts luxurious safari tents complete with private butler service, ceiling fans and spacious ensuite bathrooms. In close proximity to where the famous final scene of ‘Out of Africa’ was filmed, this magnificent camp is set on a private concession allowing one to explore by day or night, on foot or in a vehicle in the company of your expert safari guide. In the late afternoon, head out in open safari vehicles, and in the evenings have an exclusive experience, a night safari which offers an opportunity to seek out nocturnal wildlife.

  • Upgrade not applicable for this property
  • Daily breakfast (included in rates)
  • A uniquely and authentic welcome gift on arrival

Victoria Falls River Lodge, Zambezi, Zimbabwe

So close to the Victoria Falls that you can see the mist thrown up by that tumbling crescendo of water, you’ll be staying on Khandahar Island with epic views of the Zambesi river… and you can only get there by boat. Nature teems around you both in the water and on land, where wild elephants spend their days semi-oblivious to the admirers close by. Accommodation is in a series of specially-built treehouse suites, connected by wooden walkways to the lounge, dining area and sunset bar, and the levels of luxury are splendid. The ultimate stay is in one of the two Starbed Treehouses, built spectacularly over two levels above the tree-tops. Not one for the under-16s, mind.

Exploring Greece’s Golden Season

As the Summer crowds disperse and the urge to travel must be sated, set your sights on the glorious shores of Greece. Dotted across the Aegean and Mediterranean’s azure waters, there is a magical quality to the mainland and its legendary islands, each with their own stories to tell. Scented bougainvillea drapes over whitewashed buildings, the beaches and ports come alive, history buffs have millenia to uncover, and locals exude a genuine warmth and zest for life that is simply contagious. Whether sipping on beachside ouzo, discovering lively tavernas, tasting dishes bursting with flavour, enjoying evening strolls or getting a taste of true Greek hospitality, unforgettable memories will be created here. With a plethora of choices of where to stay, eat and play, we aim to highlight the very best for your bespoke travel.

The Dolli At Acropolis, Athens

Bathed in light and white-washed modernity, The Dolli has an impeccable address with mesmerising views towards the Acropolis. Don’t miss the rooftop bar, Dolli’s restaurant with decadent dishes true to Athenian tastes, and a unique art-filled lounge tempting you to stay a little longer…

Athens Capital Center Hotel - MGallery Collection, Athens

Sitting pretty in Syntagma square under the MGallery Collection, Athens Capital incorporates artistic expression and sculptures that reflect local traditions. With their ‘Inspired by Her’ program, expect thoughtful gestures and added extras that redefine the accommodation experience for women.

Mandarin Oriental, Costa Navarino, Pelopponnese

Newly opened and just a three hour drive from Athens, revel at Mandarin Oriental’s sunken pool bar and indulge at their Lebanese restaurant Tahir with impeccable service. You’ll be spoiled for choice with four golf courses, a state-of-the art gym, world-class spa and hiking, kayaking or rock climbing at your doorstep.

Canaves Oia Suites, Santorini

Perfectly situated on the dramatic Santorini cliffside, the breathtaking views here will make you want to pinch yourself. Taking romance to the next level, take a private yacht sailing tour, wander the narrow streets of picturesque Oia, then retreat to your private pool suite while soaking up sublime shades of blue.

Euphoria Retreat, Sparta

True to its name and taking inspiration from the five elements to balance and heal your life, Euphoria Retreat is a wellbeing destination spa surrounded by a private forest in the Greek Peloponnese. This is a place for self-discovery and spiritual connection that captures the essence of tranquility and movement.

Grand Forest Metsovo, Epirus

Perched within black pines in the Pindus mountain range, Grand Forest Metsovo offers a green paradise with breathtaking views in north-western Greece. Look for Eurasian brown bears and Balkan chamois, find zen calm by the infinity pool and your private patio, or go hiking along isolated trails.

Iconic Experiences

To complement these stunning properties, sign up for these three iconic experiences which are a call to a soulful and memorable Grecian escape…

Acropolis & the Acropolis Museum
When you stand at the foot of the Acropolis of Athens and gaze at the architectural splendour of the Parthenon, the spirit of Ancient Greece unfolds before your eyes, emitting a vibrancy for over 2,500 years. As the undisputed center of the city for millennia, these great historical monuments atop the hill can be seen from every corner of Athens and takes a skilled guide to reveal the secrets within. Your visit takes place early in the morning before the crowds descend, and using augmented reality on an iPad, travel back in time as you discover the monuments in their original glory and the intricate engineering behind them.

Rare truffle hunting in Motsovo
In this corner of Greece, those who know Katerina Nola call her the female “Indiana Jones,” whose incredibly trained dogs track down precious truffles with vim and vigour. Alongside their skillful senses, you’ll make the most of the stunning countryside views while watching the dogs come and go, hopefully with truffles in their snouts! There is much to be learned, and the strolling continues until they have collected enough truffles for a scrumptious cookout lunch at a wooden riverside shelter.

Olive Oil Tasting and Lunch at a Local Village
Not far from Costa Navarino, you can enjoy an exceptional culinary experience at a traditional Greek village in the Peloponnese. Hidden past stone slab streets, idyllic Greek houses and olive, chestnut and walnut trees resides an olive oil connoisseur ready to share his well-kept secrets as he guides you through the steps of olive oil tasting. By the end of the day, you’ll savour the aromas of fresh olives and appreciate the smooth, bitter taste and spicy sensation of a premium olive oil. To top it off, you’ll make and bake your own bread in a wood-fired oven to complement the traditional lunch.

Follow the siren song of your heart and take to the seas! We know Greece well, and are eager to show you how to travel in pure luxury as you make your way across the isles this Autumn. Don’t hesitate any longer and you’ll be grateful you made the leap…

Bountiful Bali Beckons

Imagine an island that is renowned for its spiritual aura, healing powers, fire dances and diversity of ecosystems and cultural charms. Bali is it, whose name ‘Island of the Gods’ is derived from an omnipresence of predominantly Hindu faith and temples. The nod towards innovative architecture is inspiring, and from a natural standpoint, you’ll access fast-flowing waterfalls, terraced rice fields, pristine jungles, and some of the best surf breaks in the world. Fall in love with this tropical state of mind, where the smiles are constant and the energy is palpable.

If this isn’t tantalising enough, read on to combine unique properties, villas and experiences to make your visit an unforgettable one.

The St. Regis Bali

With a divine offering of Villas and Residences with immediate beach or lagoon access in Nusa Dua and a Butler at your service, the lavishly appointed design at St. Regis will not disappoint with its light and airy feel. Views across the Indian Ocean and Balinese art pieces will elevate your stay. Take full advantage of our current Exquisite Beachfront Experience for 3 and 4-bedroom Residences, inclusive of elongated Spa experiences, Afternoon Tea and a private evening barbecue.

Capella Ubud

Capella’s unique structures are immersed in treetops for a sense of a refined camp, attracting modern explorers who desire luxury tents in a natural setting. Expect large outdoor decks, private pools, sustainably-farmed ingredients, storytelling time spent around the Camp Fire, and a Capella Culturist to ensure that you’re learning more about Balinese heritage during your stay. Don’t miss Auriga, an oasis cocooned in the rainforest with traditional and bespoke treatments such as Chakra balancing and Prana healing.

Private Villas

For those who are looking to get off the grid with a larger group and tailored service from the moment you land, we’ve got you covered. Whether you’re seeking 1 or 10+ bedrooms, we can source your ideal villa to accommodate friends, couples, or families with kids, complete with infinity pools, jacuzzis, beachfront access, ocean or mountain views! This is a playground for all ages and you’ll be surprised at our range of dreamy and contemporary properties throughout the island. As always, we will hunt for the perfect venue that suits your style and budget.

Experiences

Engage with a Suling Maestro

Far apart from the tried and true tourist track, spend time with one of Bali’s most famous local musicians Gus Teja and enjoy a private concert at his home. Hear about his musical background and how he crafted these instruments by his own hand from whittled wood; Suling is an end-blown bamboo flute that he combines with traditional and modern instruments to produce a unique signature blend. An incredibly authentic and soulful experience for musicians and music-lovers!

Sunrise Trek to Mount Batur

For adventure seekers, trek to the summit of Bali’s second highest volcano, where you’ll be rewarded with sublime sunrise views across the island and past Lombok’s crater and lake. This challenging 2-hour trek commences well before dawn and is an exciting traverse that takes you through forests, lava slopes and over rocky terrain until you reach the misty clouds up above. From walking in the dark to hiking around the rim of the caldera and enjoying breakfast at daybreak, these are the travel moments worth living for.

A Day in the Life of a Balinese Artist

This is a chance to meet and engage with local master artists in their homes and workshops scattered around Ubud, known as the cultural heart of Bali. Since the 1930s, this region has been a magnet and haven for renowned artists Walter Spies, Miguel Covarrubias, and later Antonio Blanco and Arie Smit. This remarkable opportunity allows you to discover Bali through its people and the unique art forms the island is known for the world over. By learning more about their craft and the significance of their art, it’s likely that you’ll return home with a piece to call your own.

Treat yourself to a destination offering a mesmerizing rhythm of life that must be experienced firsthand. Bali is the gift that keeps on giving, and we will ensure that every day spent here is maximized to its full potential.

Endless Balearic Blues

Nestled in the nook between Europe and Africa amidst the Balearic Sea, three idyllic islands are beckoning your name like the sirens of the sea. Easily accessible and wholly unique, prepare for your Mediterranean Summer retreat that will rejuvenate and reawaken your Self through healing waters, heavenly properties, and holistic dining and spa experiences. On Ibiza, the bewitching and spiritual White Isle hums at a different frequency with the world’s third most magnetic point. Outside its reputation as a party mecca, discover the majestic aura and beachfront caves. Let inspiration run its course by the creative juices that overflow in Mallorca, with wonderful roads for driving and cycling to reach cliff top views. Menorca is the smallest of the three, yet promises charm aplenty, with opportunities to go horse-riding and trying your hand at ceramics. Choose one, or island-hop all three, and you will be richly rewarded by the powerful pull of this archipelago.

Nobu Hotel Ibiza Bay

Nobu Ibiza Bay offers a seductive blend of laid-back luxury, fabulous service and easy-access to the islands’ beach clubs and renowned restaurants of Marina Botafoch and old town. Spend your days lounging between the two pools which are just steps from the beach, and enjoy the finest Asian cuisine at the brand’s iconic Nobu Restaurant. On the shores of Talamanca Bay, the hotel offers an array of ‘holistic hiking,’ guided meditation and sunset sound baths, tapas tours, or a private photo shoot to name just a few of their unique activities.

Six Senses Ibiza

Community, Spirituality and Celebration. When you travel to Six Senses on the northern tip of Ibiza, you not only arrive at a destination, you travel to a different frequency. Escape to a crystalline Cala Xarraca, where the 137 guest accommodations, townhouses, mansions, pool suites and beachfront caves are a meaningful setting for deep spiritual experiences rooted in the local culture, celebrating music, art, sustainable fashion, wellness and spirituality that has become synonymous with the island.

OKU Ibiza

Calling all wanderers who seek laidback luxury and bohemian minimalism to complement their stylish lifestyle, not far from the stunning Cala Gracio bay. Inspired by nature, this is evident in their neutral earth tones and rustic design that sets the mood of your stay. Kickstart your energising mornings with a personal training session, submit to luxuriant spa treatments, indulge in freshly caught fish and fusion cuisine, and dance the night away to their resident DJ. Life feels wholesome in a place where your desires are materialised.

7Pines Resort Ibiza

On the West Coast of Ibiza, sunsets never felt so sublime. This vast suite-only resort boasts whitewashed houses reminiscent of a village and the best infinity pool on the island. Sail along the bluest blues on their pershing yacht, or try cliff diving or quad biking for an adrenaline rush. Wellness is also crucial as you achieve balance at Pure Seven, a holistic spa and relaxation space that aims to harmonise body and soul with bespoke programs to improve your lifestyle.

La Residencia, A Belmond Hotel

Tucked away in a Northwestern hillside facing the Tramuntana Mountains, this is truly ‘an artistic oasis of rustic beauty,’ not far from the village of Deià. An outstanding reinvention of 16th and 17th century manor houses that are embellished in a vast art collection, reinvent yourself as you live an authentic lifestyle of a true Mallorcan bohemian. Spoil yourself with alfresco spa treatments infused with indigenous flora, while your children get busy with a plethora of crafty, creative and active pastimes at the Kids Club.

Can Ferrereta

Converted from a 17th-century grand house, the beauty of this property is the heritage that precedes it; think four-poster beds, stone walls, exposed beams and a collection of local and Spanish art that transports you to another time. This is an adults-only boutique resort that echoes contemporary elegance in just 32 rooms. On the undiscovered South-east corner, expect access to pine-fringed coves, natural parks, quiet inlets perfect for snorkeling, and boutique shopping.

Menorca Experimental

Stretching across 30 hectares of a 19th century finca, retreat to ‘the spirit of an artist’s vacation cottage,’ which will make your heart sing and swell! We love their intimate dipping pool and garden rooms, with meticulous geometric design woven into every crevice. A refuge in nature that feeds you seasonal produce from their vegetable garden and embraces slow living, this is a place you’ll return for.

Rejoice in these wonderful, creative havens and let us take you there effortlessly. Throw caution to the wind and follow your dreams all the way to the Illes Balears, for there’s no time like the present…
