The Season

The great and the good love to frequent London’s finest hotels, dine at its most fashionable restaurants and attend key opening parties such as the Monday preview of the Chelsea Flower Show.


April 2019 Edition

Welcome to April and springtime. In this monthly newsletter we take an overview of London, hoping to inspire you for the months ahead.


MOCA, a highlight of Bangkok

It may not be a fixture on the annual art calendar but travellers to Bangkok should not miss a visit to MOCA, the Museum of Contemporary Art.


Italy

Italy is a land blessed with an exceptionally long and interesting coastline, three major beautiful lakes, the majestic and craggy Dolomite mountains, historic cities, inviting towns and villages and gorgeous offshore islands.


A great hotel can make a city

Can a great hotel provide a good enough reason to love a city? Can it be enough to compel us to visit in the first place or to return time and time again?


February 2019 Edition

February also means Valentine’s Day and romance. Where better to celebrate it than somewhere romantic, such as in the mountains, on a tropical beach…


Four Seasons at the Surf Club, Florida

The slick, minimalist Richard Meier-designed Four Seasons Hotel & Residences, 9011 Collins Avenue, is invariably referred to as being in Miami Beach but is actually in Surfside, Dade County, closer to Bal Harbour than Miami Beach.


Miami

It’s no longer all about South Beach with its images of roller-bladers, fitness aficionados, the Versace mansion and a host of rebranded Art Deco-style boutique hotels.


December 2018 Edition

Welcome to the final month of the year. The season of goodwill is upon us, winter is officially here, days are short and festivities are gaining momentum.


The Okavango Delta

As we flew above the Kalahari, its parched, desert landscape soon gave way to pods of green foliage resembling islets, some dotted with stately palms.


Getting ready for the winter season on Mustique

A gated community for the privileged is how many people think of Mustique. To an extent, this is correct. Even as you descend onto the immaculate airport strip, with its perfectly maintained tarmac, and arrive at the tiny arrivals hall it feels, shall we say, somewhat elitist.


Country House Hotel

If you are seeking the most exceptional, luxurious accommodation outside London, with top cuisine, in a gorgeous bucolic setting, we think we may have found what you are looking for. It promises to be the UK’s finest new country house hotel.


There is nothing worse than…

There is nothing worse than a hotel claiming to be the ultimate in luxury when it simply does not deliver. You know how much you loved a place by how ready you are to leave.


August 2018 Edition

Welcome to the month of August. High summer is over and it won’t be long before August Bank Holiday in the UK and Labor Day in the US are upon us.
