In the sunny Cyclades of Greece, the Liostasi Hotel & Suites is a peaceful respite from the noise and chatter of the outside world. […]
Steps from a busy world-renowned Waikiki Beach or tucked away from the cacophony of 5th Avenue in Manhattan, you might be surprised to learn that there are serene spas offering rejuvenation to your weary body and ragged spirit. And where does the effect of dry plane air, airline food and jet lag show up first ? Why on your face, of course, so I always try to fit a facial into my travel plans.
This collection of spas offers some of the best facials I have ever had. The facial criteria included product, application, product knowledge, surroundings, skill of the esthetician and total experience.

Looking for an exotic place to sleep and eat? We’ve found a great deal for two at Enchantment Resort in Sedona, Ariz., which includes dinner for two at the resort’s completely new signature restaurant, Che-Ah-Chi.

We always love a good pinot. We also love a stellar locale and a stunning property. And if we really could have everything we’d wish for a fabulous restaurant and an award-winning spa too.

Located in Oregon’s wine country everything at the inn is all about wine. You can spend an entire day here, sipping, soaking in and tasting everything vino.
The level of sophistication of all of the various offerings here might seem rather incongruous in this laid back area of the Willamette Valley but it is all Northwest elegance down to the collection of local artwork, design, spa treatments, food and level of service.
Everywhere you look from the room design to the restaurant décor to the welcome goodies in […]
