Two new The Ritz-Carlton properties will debut in early 2021. The Ritz-Carlton, Paradise Valley opens in the first quarter. The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands is set to open during the second quarter.
Located minutes from downtown Scottsdale, Arizona, The Ritz-Carlton, Paradise Valley is situated on 20 acres. The new-build property features 215 guestrooms and a 16,000-square-foot spa, all with views of nearby Camelback Mountain. To prepare for its opening, the property pivoted during construction to incorporate new safety features. A Plasma Air was installed in each guestroom and common space to reduce airborne viruses and bacteria. Also opening in 2021 is The Palmeraie, a $2 billion shopping and dining destination. The Palmeraie will feature more than 60 luxury boutiques and 12 restaurants, with The Ritz-Carlton, Paradise Valley at its center.
The Ritz-Carlton Maldives, Fari Islands will be the first property for the Ritz-Carlton brand to open in the region. The Fair Islands is an archipelago, with three other luxury properties and the Fari Marina, a bustling tourist destination with boutiques, restaurants and a beach club. Villas at the property will range from one to three bedrooms. In addition to the Ritz’s legendary service, guests can take advantage of the resort’s dining venues, signature spa, fitness center and recreational facilities.
Museums beckon wherever we go. They amuse and enlighten travelers and bring to public attention historical, artistic, scientific and natural wonders. Most are thought-provoking and educational, stretching our minds and our knowledge of the world. Some, however, stand out as just plain quirky: personal and sometimes whimsical collections, museums dedicated to a unique skill or long- forgotten industry, arcane collections originally designed for scientific study. Others devote their space to sharing a subject that represents one person’s consuming passion.

Savoy Signature Hotel Group continues to generate a buzz in international hospitality about the way its diverse portfolio shapes Madeira’s future as a destination; the brand keeps existing fans (particularly the traditional group of older British and German visitors) interested while drawing younger, more active travelers beyond the confines of Europe. The Savoy Palace, opened in 2019, took on the “legacy” mantle of a predecessor (the former Savoy Hotel) that stood on the same site, and then reopened with a lot of enthusiasm after the height of the pandemic passed.

The Namib Desert, 1992. After hours of driving across parched African emptiness, we reached an oasis of trees and shade surrounded by giant red dunes. Two dozen trucks arrived there before us, along with RVs, tents and tables. Power lines webbed the whole makeshift encampment. Generators and air-conditioners hummed. People bustled around. Attention seemed to focus on a particular tree in the middle distance. I aimed my binoculars and saw more people, a line of empty directors’ chairs, a movie camera, reflectors, a sound boom ... and Reese Witherspoon.
