Winter is here, people–it’s almost Christmas already! You know what that means?! It’s freezing and travel is always on everyone’s minds! Especially if you live in the freezing cold tundra like moi! So since you’re probably pining away for some sort of fabulous escape to hold you over until spring, The Luxury Travel Blog Network has some choice stories for you to fuel your travel inspiration! We are all wishing you a happy holidays and a happy New Year! Enjoy a trip around the web to a few of this month’s best luxe travel destinations. Maybe if you wish real hard, Santa will bring you to one of these places!
First up, Nadine Jolie visited the Laurel Collection, a boutique hotel within Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. The rooms look absolutely gorgeous and you know this little beauty maven checked out the spa offerings! The spa looked incredible and my favorite little newlywed took in a couple’s massage with her new hubby. The treatment she had was the signature spa treatment of Nobu Hotel, which is another boutique hotel inside Caesar’s Palace. But perhaps what I am most jealous of is that she had a chance to experience Rao’s of New York! I still have yet to snag a reservation here and am dying to try what is widely considered to be New York’s best Italian cuisine! Check out her post to learn more.
Next, we head over to Mrs. O Around the World who spent a luxe weekend in Rome! Get this–her readers helped her choose where she should go on this fab getaway! Just one more reason to follow this lovely gal! Rome is one of my favorite cities in the entire world so I was super excited to see how Mrs. O painted the town! And she did not disappoint! She checked in at the St. Regis Rome and I couldn’t get over how gorgeous it was! Although there was a bit of rain, Mrs. O managed to pack a lot in to her visit–of course with a little champagne, dahhling. Definitely worth reading–she even has some off the beaten path recommendations that are worth checking out!
Finally, Luxury Travel Mom headed down to Mauritius (she even flew Coach to check it out!) Kim-Marie was invited to this secluded island on the other side of the world to review Constance Hotel’s Le Prince Maurice. They invited her to show her how family-friendly they were! I know, uber luxe getaway in the middle of the Indian Ocean doesn’t scream child-friendly, right? But they really put her adorable son, Keaton to work–trying out the Kids’ Club and all the amazing activities the resort has to offer him. And this amazing video that she made will make you want to have children of your own to take here and spoil! Keaton steals the show in this awesome video that gives you a taste of just how family-friendly Le Prince Maurice is! I think we may be looking at a future Oscar nominee! On her way to Mauritius Luxury Travel Mom stopped over in London and spent a luxe weekend at the new Apartments by the Sloane Club on Sloane Square. She loved her stay, find out why (spoiler alert–there was champagne)!
