Amanyara Turks and Caicos, Carribean by Beau Dunn

📍Amanyara, Turks and Caicos

Ports Of Call Grace Bay, Turks & Caicos Islands

Located an hour flight from Miami, lies the Amanyara resort in the beautiful island of Turks and Caicos. Beau spent a week exploring 

Must stay:

Amanyara Turks and Caicos is a five star beachfront resort overlooking a marine reserve, with the clearest blue water, and whitest sand beaches imaginable. The property hosts 40 guest pavilions, 33 multi-bedroom villas, all containing glass floor to walls. The Amanyara boasts pools, a gorgeous beach club villa, 5 star restaurants, fitness center, spa, and multi-sport field; volleyball court and golf simulator.

Must Try:

If you haven’t heard of SEABOB, just get ready. Imagine a hand-controlled Jetski that allows you to explore the ocean up to 12.43 mph, with diving depths of 131 ft. In other words, meet Seabob – the ultimate ocean exploring device. Seabobing was one of the most exciting aspects of our trip, as we spent our days zipping around the marine reserve.

Must Spa:

The Serenity Villa is Amanyara’s spa and wellness facility, featuring four double treatment pavilions, adult swimming pool, and outdoor yoga sala, and a Pilates studio. The spa offers massages, wraps, scrubs, and facials. All services can also be enjoyed in the privacy of your own villa or pavilion.

Must Taste:

The Amanyara offers two main restaurants on premises, The Restaurant, and the Beach Club. The Restaurant is situated around the outdoor reflection pond and offers a diverse local menu. The Beach Club offers daily lunch including raw food dishes caught locally, as well as light and fun dishes including a goat cheese guacamole that is to die for!

Beau vists the Four Seasons Tented Camp in Chiang Rai by Liv Fierro

📍 Chiang Rai, Thailand

www.FourSeasons.com

During her month long stay in Thailand, and partnership with the Four Seasons Resorts, Beau spent a week at the Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle located in Chiang Rai Thailand.  The only all-inclusive Luxury Four Seasons, located in the Northern most part of Thailand – was once the center of all poppy cultivation.

Beau got up-close and personal with the majestic rescued Asian elephants on the property. Activities such as wilderness treks by Elephantback and elephant bathing in the river are just a few activities the hotel offers. “Spending time with these kind, majestic creatures leaves a lasting impression on everyone—yet, each guest’s experience is different. For some, it is an incredible adventure; for others, the interaction is spiritual and transformative; for yet others, it results in unique friendships.” – Four Seasons 

Ventana Resort, Big Sur, California by Beau Dunn

📍Big Sur, California

I was invited to one of my best friends weddings up in Big Sur, and to be completely honest, was shocked that growing up in California, I had never been. After one of the most beautiful drives up the coast, we arrived to Ventana Resort and Spa, and I could not have been more excited. The resort is the coolest woodsy - chic lodge , something I had never experienced, and super romantic. Located in the Redwoods, Ventana also houses one of the best spas in Northern California. Spend an afternoon poolside reading a good book, or let the outdoor Japanese hot baths inspire a Zen-like peacefulness as you soak in the soothing water and gaze up at the rustling trees and twinkling stars dotting the midnight sky. This is an absolute must stay if visiting up  north.

Lets talk about being blown away... This is exactly how I felt walking into the front doors of the beautiful contemporary St. Regis Hotel in Chengdu China. The St. Regis Chengdu is located within steps of Tianfu Square and Chunxi Road. Boasting an iconic address in the ancient city, the hotel is strategically placed near premier shopping and renowned restaurants (yay!). The 279 superb guest rooms and suites are meticulously decorated, with custom furnishings and modern amenities creating a sense of inimitable grace and style. I am blown away by the amenities offered at this location, including two swimming pools, a spa, a number of restaurants, and up to date technology everywhere you look.  The Butler Service is top notch, and please ask for Jesse, who helped me organize my entire itinerary, including introducing me to our tour guide !

Great Mercury Island , New Zealand by Beau Dunn

Known as one of the most exclusive private islands in the entire world, Great Mercury Island is cradled in the seclusion of the Pacific Ocean . This privately owned island offers a tranquil ambience in luxury surroundings, yet remains completely unspoilt in its pristine natural state. Atop the rolling hillsides are panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, including white sandy beaches, rugged coastlines and native bush headlands.

When you think of 90210, what do you think of? Rodeo Drive? Palm Trees? Celebrities? Well welcome home to The Beverly Hills Hotel, which not only houses all the above, but is a staple in the city of glitz and glam. Established in May of 1912,  BHH is known as the celebrity hang out for many generations, and happens to not only be down the street from my house, but one of my all time favorite hotels. Housing bungalows on property, and the famed Polo Lounge, the hotel is fully functional, for long or short term stay !

One of the best hidden gems in the world - and only a half hour helicopter ride outside the city of Guatemala lies Casa Palopo! 

This stunning property is set in the steep hills surrounding Santa Catarina Palopó, a Mayan village northwest of Guatemala City. It overlooks Lake Atitlan and not one, but three volcanoes.

Four Seasons - Ubud Bali, Indonesia by Beau Dunn

📍Ubud, Bali

Four Seasons Hotel Ubud // Jl. Raya Sayan, Ubud, Kec. Gianyar, Bali, Indonesia

How would I describe the Four Seasons Ubud? In one word - AVATAR! It looks exactly like James Cameron's alien world of Pandora, also one of my favorite hotels in the world. Stepping into this Four Seasons, you immediately feel like you are in a different world, away from the hustle and bustle of Ubud Bali.  Tranquil yet full luxury, this hotel houses luxury villas which include your own pool. I HIGHLY recommend visiting this amazing property, as it is a must go to while in Ubud!
