Reconnect with nature and step outside your comfort zone at Palmaïa, The House of AïA. The new Riviera Maya resort focuses on inner exploration and a respect for nature, offering visitors an array of experiences promoting self-discovery and spiritual wellness.

Two unique programs Palmaïa, The House of AïA offers are the Architects of Life program and the Rituals of Sound program. The former is led by the property’s in-house shaman and includes cacao ceremonies, yoga, sound healing, plant ceremonies and meditation. The latter pays homage to the music of Tulum and Mykonos, bringing in experimental musicians to perform on a daily basis.

All guestrooms are oceanfront suites with private terraces. Suites come in seven layout options, including open plans, layouts for families, suites with swim-out access to infinity pools and suites hidden in the jungle.

Four restaurants are on site, serving a range of cuisines, including Mexican, Thai, Caribbean and Mediterranean. A food truck offers a rotating menu.

A jungle spa provides ancient ceremonies and treatments that look at emotion as the root cause of physical pain.

“There is a growing community of unconventional thinkers and spiritual seekers that gather in small communities around the world to embrace creativity, music and the environment. Together we are creating a new modern collective consciousness,” said Alexander Ferri, founder, Palmaïa, The House of AïA. “Palmaïa was designed to be one of these gathering points, and currently the only natural, forward thinking beach enclave of its kind. A safe place where we can create positive change within the boundaries of modern society.”

Parkway Bakery & Tavern Review

My husband, friends and I visited Parkway Bakery & Tavern on a recent trip to New Orleans. The restaurant is one of the most well-known for the city’s signature sandwich, the po’ boy. The restaurant doesn’t take reservations, so we arrived close to when it opened and braved the already-long line.

Celebrating the Best of Leisure Travel

WELCOME TO THE EIGHTH ANNUAL Leisure Lifestyle Issue, celebrating the best in leisure travel. This year is a bit different because many of us haven’t traveled as we have in the past, but instead of writing about what we’ve missed in 2020, I’m looking forward to what will be possible in the rest of the year and beyond.

The Perfect Fit

According to the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy, small businesses create two-thirds of net new jobs and account for nearly 48 percent of the U.S. private sector workforce. And small- and medium-sized businesses outpace all other sectors as one of the fastest-growing in the United States. InterContinental® Hotels Group (IHG) goes above and beyond to create opportunities for this segment with its IHG® Business Edge program, voted Best Small- to Mid-Sized Business Program in Global Traveler’s 2019 GT Tested Reader Survey awards.

Find Travel Inspiration in the Eighth Annual Leisure Lifestyle Issue

WHAT A YEAR ... AND IT’S ONLY JUNE (or already June, depending on how you look at it). “Leisure lifestyle” may seem like an oxymoron in 2020, but as an optimist and travel enthusiast, I’m still determined to live the rest of this year to the fullest (or as full as possible, given the ongoing COVID-19 situation) — with travel at the forefront — and there’s no better way to do that than with a strictly leisure vacation.
