Winter has drawn to a close and with spring break, Easter, and Passover soon upon us it is time to get some new travel experiences to cross off your bucket list. Here are our five must-visits to keep you relaxed and refreshed going into the new season.
Take in Tuscany at Villa Mangiacane.
Escape to a world of renaissance beauty at Villa Mangiacane in the rolling hills of Tuscany in Italy. Formerly home to the powerful Machiavelli family (and famed author of The Prince), the twenty-eight luxurious guest rooms and suites are individually and elegantly designed, each with views of the Italian gardens, vineyards, or the majestic city of Florence. For wine connoisseurs, Villa Mangiacane is a full-scale, premium wine and olive oil producing estate. See www.mangiacane.com.
Get that beach body at Nashville’s Fit Farm.
Head for Fit Farm, nestled in the rolling hills of Nashville, and work with their team to achieve truly life-changing results. Fit Farm’s program starts before you arrive with an assessment exercise to identify your needs and plans. Once at the 160-acre adult playground, you can follow one of their creative fitness programs and enjoy included nutrition and an experience to remember. #challengeyourlimits. See www.fit.farm.
Take a luxurious voyage with Silversea.
Once a year is probably a good time to try something different. Why not experience five-star luxury at sea with Silversea on a cruise? This offers one of the most prestigious restaurants on the high seas, La Dame, as well as top quality service and facilities -– all while traveling to new destinations. Some particularly exciting cruise experiences are to Alaska and the Mediterranean, the latter onboard the latest addition to the Fleet, the Silver Muse. See www.silversea.com.
Luxury is back with the re-opening of the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park London.
One of London’s iconic hotel experiences is now fully returned after a fire disrupted extensive modernization of the property. Whilst restaurants Bar Boulud and Dinner by Heston Blumenthal (of The Fat Duck fame) and spa re-opened early (experience the Bastien Gonzalez Pedi:Mani: Cure Studio) guests can now return to the 5 -star London hotel experience they have missing – book now! See www.mandarinoriental.com/london.
Experience absolute serenity at Four Seasons Resort Palm Beach.
Inspired by Palm Beach’s relaxed yet glamorous resort style and the heritage of the famously elegant island, the five-star, AAA five-diamond awarded beachfront resort combines the allure of Palm Beach with the easygoing pace by the water. While relaxation is a natural pastime with their five-star spa and two pools, including an adults-only offering, adventure also awaits with infinite ways to enjoy the resort by land or by sea. Dine at Florie’s, the first restaurant and bar in the U.S. in partnership with three-star Michelin Chef Mauro Colagreco. See www.fourseasons.com/palmbeach.
