Cabot Highlands
This summer, Cabot announced its acquirement of Castle Stuart Golf Links and its accompanying resort amenities near Inverness, Scotland. Cabot rebranded the property Cabot Highlands. Situated in the Scottish Highlands, the resort includes world-class golf, and boutique and luxury accommodations at Golf Lodge, Farm House and Castle Cottage. Visitors can also find accommodations at nearby hotels and B&Bs. Castle Stuart Golf Links was recently named the fourth best course in Britain and Ireland by Golfweek.

 

Cabot Highlands includes an Art Deco-inspired clubhouse, practice facility, putting green and a new short course. The course features holes framed by the water’s edge on one side and bluffs on the other, with rumpled fairway contours and infinity-edged greens that seem perched on cliffs directly over the sea. A second course, designed by golf course architect Tom Doak, will be completed in 2024. The nearby city of Inverness lies 10 minutes away and offers opportunities to experience the vibrant Scottish culture through Victorian-era marketplaces, cathedrals, museums and restaurants.

 

Cabot Cape Breton
Celebrating its 10th anniversary this season, Cabot Cape Breton is known as a bucket list destination thanks to its dramatic setting atop majestic cliffs in Nova Scotia, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The resort includes a 72-room lodge with ocean views from every room, three exquisite restaurants featuring fresh seafood and endless opportunities for hiking, biking, kayaking and heli fly-fishing. The Nest is a new par-3, 10-hole short course perched atop the highest point of Cabot Cliffs. Summer room rates start at $382 per night.

Grand Solmar at Rancho San Lucas
The Greg Norman Signature Course at Grand Solmar at Rancho San Lucas, on the tip of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, spans three different ecosystems and features ocean views at every hole along with a signature island green. The golf course is just 15 minutes from downtown Cabo San Lucas and set in rolling desert foothills that lead to 1.2 miles of pristine beachfront on the Pacific Ocean. The resort boasts ocean views from every suite and standout amenities include multiple restaurants, a luxury seaside spa with private beachfront cabanas, infinity pools, a saltwater lagoon winding through the property and new pickleball courts. Summer rates start at $398 per night.

 

Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto
Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto is also on Baja Peninsula, about 300 miles north of Rancho San Lucas, on the eastern coast of the peninsula. The area is a rising destination for relaxation, culture and ecotourism, but Villa del Palmar is still a largely undiscovered, peaceful retreat, best known for its secluded, unspoiled setting in Loreto Bay National Marine Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The resort offers four restaurants, five pools, the 39,000-square-foot Sabila Spa and the exceptional 18-hole TPC Danzante Bay Golf Course. The only TPC course in Mexico, this course offers a truly unique golf experience. All-inclusive summer rates start from $354 per night.

Saudi Arabia Fosters Sustainable, Regenerative Tourism Along the Red Sea

 My first experience of Saudi Arabia's Red Sea coast now seems like ancient history. It was 1995, and I was visiting my ornithologist cousin and is wife. Getting into the kingdom wasn't easy; I needed sponsorship letters. and a pre-trip interview at the Saudi Arabian Embassy. When I arrived in the country, there was no tourist infrastructure. We toured by SUV ad often slept under the stars. Thus, one morning, we woke up on roll-out mattresses on a Red Sea beach 200 miles from Jeddah.

Krakow’s Old Town Charms with Stunning Beauty, Museums and Great Food

A stop in Krakow would not be complete without a visit to the Lady with an Ermine, a Leonardo da Vinci masterpiece, said to be second only to the Mona Lisa. One of four extant Da Vinci portraits, it depicts a young woman, mistress of Ludovico Sforza, embracing an outsize ermine thought to be a reference to Ludovico’s nickname “the white ermine.” The national treasure is a highlight of the significant collection in the city’s Czartoryski Museum, the country’s oldest, comprising three historical buildings: a 19th-century monastery, the 16th-century Municipal Arsenal and the neo-Gothic Palace built in the 19th century for the prominent noble Czartoryski family whose ancestor, Princess Izabela, founded the museum in 1796.
