News / The Travel Update

Exercise, sleep, breathe, relax and repeat



Amangiri, USA / Back to the Wild

Deep in the Colorado Plateau, surrounded by steep escarpments and rocky canyons, get ready to immerse yourself in the rustic and remote scenery of Camp Sarika by Amangiri (pictured above) which opened in July. A short hike or drive from Amangiri’s main resort, this tented retreat promises an intimate interaction with the dramatic Utah desert. Watch from your private pool terrace as the ochre morning light turns to a deep pink at dusk and enjoy exclusive access to the greatest concentration of national parks in the US.

Villa Igiea, Italy / Holiday romance

The colourful port city of Palermo will welcome Villa Igiea, a new Rocco Forte Hotel in 2021. The statuesque building, surrounded by palms and overlooking the marina, will blend period features with contemporary design to offer you the best of both worlds. In the restaurant, fresh seafood and local produce is being reimagined into traditional recipes with a twist. Elsewhere you can indulge in the romance of gold-stone palazzos, Baroque palaces and stately cathedrals, which are all just a stone’s throw away.

Halkidiki, Greece / A fresh face

Porto Sani debuted with a fresh new look when their doors opened in July this year. Check into the Sani Suite Collection in Greece, where your personal concierge will be on-hand to arrange unique excursions, reserve a private beach area or book you into one of the resort’s 22 restaurants and bars. Alternatively, test your mettle at the Rafa Nadal Tennis Centre set up by the Grand-Slam professional or embark on a family adventure at the Bear Grylls Survival Academy in the wilderness.


Cruise / Tailored to you

New for 2020, Oceania Cruises’ new Aquamar Spa + Vitality Centre on board every ship embraces the concept of personal renewal through curated therapies, down to acupuncture sessions for effective pain management and restorative Himalayan salt stone massages to diffuse negative energy. When your foot touches dry land the bespoke treatments continue, whether you enjoy yoga amongst Chilean vines or discover apitherapy in Seville, which harnesses the benefits of honeybee products.

New York, USA / Work hard, rest hard

We understand how a bad night can dramatically effect your day, which is why we are now working with Equinox Hotel Hudson Yards in New York to ensure you never have to worry about lack of sleep again. Rooms and suites with total sound- proofing, black-out blinds and sheets made from temperature-regulating fibres are just the start of it. You can also work with a Sleep Coach, from Equinox’s most elite training programme, to evaluate and improve your sleep habits during your stay with life-changing results.
