Best of The Rich Travellerby yogesh
We take a look at the best travel brings us this week. Bespoke experiences are the order of the day -from gourmet experiences in Vietnam to all-inclusive offer at Parrots Cay, photography excursions, free nights at the Four Seasons Chicago or grape-picking at lush Provencal vineyards, our Rich Traveller is looking for personalized, one-of-a-kind unique experiences. And of course, just like everything else, we must do it in style: in our Valentino Resort Collection, our Hermès printed beach towel or on a 360-degree Outdoor Lounge bed. We also take a peek into what’s up and coming. While we’re thrilled about the brand new Mandarin Oriental Paris, Blakes Hotel’s newly refurbished rooms, or the new Trump Toronto that will open doors soon; we wait with awaited breath as Virgin Hotels plans their first space hotel! Train travel has come a long way, with China making a foray into luxury fast trains while the Greenbrier will revive the old-fashioned luxury trains in America.
Before we wrap up this week, don’t forget to add Ritz-Carlton as a friend on FourSquare. That’s right; the hotel company is on the location-based app. and tipping at the tip of your finger! No pun intended!
