Cook Islands: Discover a Little Paradise

Capture the “Kia Orana” spirit! Explore the South Pacific’s best-kept secret — the 15 islands that make up the Cook Islands are located in the heart of Polynesia, nestled between Hawai’i and New Zealand. This modern Polynesian nation is an oasis of freedom with crystal-clear, blue waters; bright-white, sandy beaches; warm weather year-round; and authentic, friendly locals. Less than 30 minutes from plane to any beach, it is so easy to do as much or as little as you like. First, explore the striking volcanic island of Rarotonga; like one big resort all in one island, Rarotonga offers endless adventures just outside your resort, ringed by boutique hotels, exquisite restaurants, gift shops, markets and more. In Aitutaki, you will experience “the world’s most beautiful lagoon,” according to Tony Wheeler, founder, Lonely Planet. This jewel of an isle offers an idyllic blue lagoon and pearly white beaches to match.

Make Tracks on a Luxury Train Trip in 2023

Ah, the romance of train travel ... even commuters feel it. There’s something oh so Alfred Hitchcock, Agatha Christie and Harry Potter about chugging down a track on the way to some wonderful — perhaps even mysterious — destination, your bag neatly tucked above you, a book in your lap, your journey ahead. The scenery outside passes by like a film in fast motion. The seats (comfortable on most global trains, even in second class) feel like super-plush movie theater lounge chairs. Each train car, like a narrow living room, boasts its own mood depending on fellow travelers and the ministrations of attentive staff.
