To celebrate the 150th anniversary of one of the world’s most elegant and spectacular hotels- the Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc – we have put together another travel issue. From the comfort of your home, join us for a tour of the beautiful French Riviera and learn the history of this traditional, iconic hotel. Head with us to Namibia in southwest Africa for a glimpse of what is perhaps the continent’s most gorgeous scenery; virtually visit the Caribbean island of Mustique; acquaint yourself with two variations of luxury in Bali- deep in the jungle and beside the sea; and take a journey into the past with the beautifully resorted Orient Expresses. We may be stuck at home, but there’s no better time to explore the world, even if it is digitally for now.
A Journey of Contrasts
For those looking to enjoy Bali from its most sumptuous side, there’s a wonderful double experience to be had: It leads from the golden private beach of the Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay to the depths of the Balinese jungle and the Four Seasons at Sayan. A tale of divine relaxation, encounters with rice farmers and Michelin-starred cuisine on the banks of the Ayung River. Click here to read more.
The Grande Dame of the Côte d’Azur
It’s a magical place where you forget time. And once you’ve been here, you cannot wait to come back. This year, the uniquely glamorous Hôtel du Cap-Eden-Roc on the French Riviera turns 150. The guests are the hotel’s most valuable asset of all: Some families have been coming here for generations. So hats off- and happy birthday. Click here to read more.
Namibia, My Love
Nothing but dunes and red earth for hundreds of kilometers. The Namib is said to be the world’s oldest desert and is as inhospitable as a lunar landscape. And yet, this spectacular environment allows visitors to observe exotic animals that have adapted to the extreme conditions. We took a trip to three remote safari camps that was truly unforgettable.

Retro Glamour, On the Go
On the Orient Express- meticulously restored to its 1920s glory- every carriage is a masterpiece. A one- or multi-night journey is the most opulent way to travel from March to November, when the rolling luxury hotel links up some of Euripe’s most beautiful cities. We chose the classic Venice-London route. Since then, it’s been hard to get this epic journey our of our minds. Click here to read more.
Among Rock Stars & Royals
If you’re here, it’s because you belong. That’s how it is on Mustique. The Caribbean island achieved royal fame when Princess Margaret was given a property and the Queen’s sister started to visit regularly. Roughly six square kilometers in area, the tiny island has no street signs, paparazzi, DJs or bustling nightlife. However, legendary parties abound. Click here to read more.
