Around Our World

Updates from around our world on everything that’s happening — or about to happen — in the world of travel.

What’s Next on Our Radar

The nation of Georgia has such long culinary traditions that archaeologists have found evidence of winemaking dating back to 6,000 B.C.! Put it on your radar and we’ll connect you with Exeter International for privately led excursions like preparing khachapuri (baked bread filled with cheese and egg) in Tblisi and sipping varietals in the winemaking villages of Kakheti. Exeter International can also show you the lesser-known sides of Croatia and other special regions through a culinary lens.

Where to Stay: Reimagined Hotels

Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park, London has emerged from the most extensive renovations in its 117-year history, featuring two new penthouse suites and a refreshed state-of-the-art spa. In Santa Monica, the beach-vibed Oceana has opened its doors after a major transformation. Wellness seekers will aspire to spend plenty of time in the new Miraval Austin — a serene space in Texas Hill Country.

Suite (and Villa) Privileges Just for You

We are always looking for ways to make your stay a little more special and a lot more personal. In our collection of over 1,100 properties, you can expect meaningful touches like complimentary breakfast and $100 in dining or spa credit. Stay two or more nights in a participating suite or villa, and we’ll expand those privileges to up to $500 in value: additional valuable credit, airport transfers, a special meal for two or a round of golf. We’re here for you, always.
