Another hotel sending the fun of luxury amenities home, Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa knows exactly what would-be guests need to keep up the luxe lifestyle from self-quarantine with the launch of #PressPause. The new social media campaign aims at creating joyful, light and airy moments at home, amid some challenging times, with some fun activities.
Check in on the fun with cocktail recipes, desserts and activities for all ages:
“What’s Left in the Fridge” Cocktail Series: Something we all might know too well, the feeling at the end of the week with a refrigerator showcasing dwindling ingredients and similar shelves in the grocery store — don’t worry, you can still whip something up with what you have! Inspired by Eau Palm Beach’s culinary and mixology team, guests can find ingredients in their kitchen ready for mixing and tasting. These can also be made as mocktails, so the kids can join in the fun, too.
Culinary Bravado with a Homestyle Twist: Clearly, cooking is a theme with this one, but there’s no better time to brush up on your skills in the kitchen. Eau Palm Beach’s culinary team shares resort recipes future guests might find at Angle, Temple Orange, Breeze Ocean Kitchen and Stir Bar & Terrace.
Mango & Charred Corn Salad: And what’s a beach-themed menu without some tropical fruit? Create some chef-level cuisine, from citrus salads to cinnamon rolls with the help of Chef Zachary Detweiller.
Simply follow along with the resort’s social media channels and #PressPause.
There is something magical about sipping a glass of local wine while watching the sun slip into the Aegean Sea as the afterglow tinges traditional, white-washed Cycladic houses with glorious shades of rose, purple and gold. Ancient Greeks believed Helios, the Sun God, caused sunsets by driving his fiery chariot into the sea. Standing at water’s edge in Mykonos, watching the sky slowly turn from purple to inky black, you almost believe it.
Whether it's the people, the craic (fun) or the coasts, travelers always find something to love about the island of Ireland. What fills your heart?
I hadn’t even made it to my first cup of coffee when I got an early phone call from my sister, who lives two time zones away. “OMG, Kristy, Patsy Cline came on twice while I was driving the kids to school today,” she laughed. “You know what that means, right?” We both gasped and then instantly began singing the lyrics to “La Bamba,” an inside joke we’d shared since our family’s Alaskan cruise decades ago when we, unintentionally, won the ship’s karaoke contest among a sea of Patsy Cline tributes.
Located in the heart of Houston’s Theatre District, the recently renovated Lancaster Hotel originally opened in 1926. The classic interior with an abundance of natural light floods the two-story lobby. A shimmering chandelier and elegant marble floors juxtapose nicely with the contemporary art displayed on the salon staircase wall.
From the moment you step onboard Air Tahiti Nui’s Tahitian Dreamliner, you will be transported to The Islands of Tahiti. The French Polynesian carrier considered every detail to awaken its passengers’ senses, creating the feeling you are already on the Islands while 30,000 feet in the air.
The Woodward Geneva and Swiss International Air Lines recently launched a new collaboration to transport passengers to the counter of Michelin-starred restaurant L’Atelier Robuchon. As part of the SWISS Taste of Switzerland inflight culinary program, the partnership provides Business and first-class travelers on SWISS long-haul flights departing from Geneva and Zürich carefully curated menus inspired by the restaurant.
It’s time to start dreaming of your next trip. Here’s some destination inspiration for you. Take a visual journey through Tirana, Albania, with us.
The Islands of Tahiti are among the most beautiful and sought-after vacation destinations in the world. The endless images of overwater bungalows with Bora Bora’s majestic peak towering over waters of every shade of blue have an intrinsic pull. But with 118 islands and atolls to explore, there is so much more to this spectacular region of the Pacific.
Midway Atoll is the end of the Hawai‘ian Islands, literally. This is the ultimate fate of these low, sandy islets ringing a lagoon: Eventually these last remnants of a once large volcanic island will sink beneath the waves, completing a story that began 1,500 miles away. Midway, though not easy to get to, occasionally features in cruise itineraries. Holland America Line’s Westerdam offers a rare chance to glimpse the remotest of all the Hawai‘ian Islands with a scheduled stop in October 2024. You can still see the relics of the famous World War II battle here as well as a million nesting albatrosses and other seabirds.
