The Cutting Edge: New Product Spotlight 2016

I love feeling like an insider when I travel, a feeling only surpassed by feeling as though I am at the every forefront of new developments in our destination markets.

In that vein, our first TT of 2016 showcases our new favorite spots and new products for the travel year ahead. In the Americas, look no further than Uruguay.
Scandinavian Alex Vik has brought a mix of cutting edge style and chic to three trendy properties here. Portugal
, one of the most underrated countries in the world, contributes  Areias do Seixo and Six Senses Douro Valley…experience one of the most underrated countries in Europe. Madagascar is one of my favorite destinations in the world. Private island Miavana is the zenith of a trip here and will become one of the most sought after destinations once discovered. Finally, Cape Town will unveil The Silo, a 5 star ++ hotel that will be unmatched for views, luxury and heard it here first.
There are so many destinations to canvas, but this is a heartfelt selection that I cannot wait for you to experience… travel well, travel often...and travel with us!!
Best regards,

Uruguay - Latin American Gem!

Look no further than Uruguay for your winter getaway - see undiscovered beaches, learn to play polo and YES, experience a fine emerging wine culture. Easily combined with neighboring Argentina, Uruguay has romance written all over it...Valentine’s week getaway anyone??!!
Portugal - Hiding in Plain Sight...
For a taste of the best of Franco/Italiano combination imaginable without the
crowds or the prices, explore this hidden gem. Lisbon is at once a medieval and contemporary city, and a stone’s throw away is one of the most luxuriously eclectic spots in our portfolio, Areias do Seixo. A trip north to the Douro valley is rewarded with artisanal food, fantastic winelands and Six Senses as a base
(just don’t tell anyone!).
Madagascar - Mad About One of a Kind
Visit a country that is home to flora and fauna that exists nowhere else and where spectacular scenic splendor abounds. And the locals are fabulous to boot! We have designed some stellar itineraries in this off the beaten track destination that showcase iconic Lemurs, jungles teeming with wildlife and an untouched beach experiences. Miavana was designed by the same crew as North Island and is extraordinary, providing a window into a nature experience that simply cannot be replicated.
Cape Town - A New Cherry on the Top
Intermittently a property emerges that is a game changer...enter The Silo, in
the heart of the city’s waterfront. This is set to be the most talked about hotel in South Africa. It’s location atop an old grain silo provides sweeping views of the city. Spectacular industrial-residential architecture creates unprecedented space
and light.
