Unique, Extraordinary Experiences

Well, I just finished up a week of meetings with over 85 partners in the travel industry. Last year I met with 68, and there were only 6 repeats. Gosh, it was all marvelous! Virtuoso Travel Week is like a combination of fashion week, school, and speed dating with a few cocktails thrown in for extra fun. It’s quite uplifting for those of us in the industry, and I love making connections with the creative community that makes magic happen in travel.


Pathways at Canyon Ranch

Canyon Ranch is a leader in the wellness travel sector and always has been.

Mel and Enid Zuckerman and Jerry Cohen founded Canyon Ranch in 1979 in Tucson, Arizona. They were originally inspired to start a health resort after Mel Zuckerman experienced his own success with improving his health when he stepped outside of his life. Following the financial success of the Tucson location, the Lenox resort opened in 1989.

Wellness Reboots :: Four Vacations That Are All About Self-Care

A decade ago, wellness travel meant a hotel with a spa. And while we all love the massage therapists, smoothie-bar mixologists, and trainers who transform trips into spells of bliss, wellness travel is now so much more. We craft experiences that are deeper and more meaningful. And integration after the fact is key.


Canadian Wellness Spas Open to US

Whether you prefer city sophistication or rustic bliss, here’s where to soak up some major TLC.

While DIY meditation and at-home manicures can do in a pinch, many travelers are craving the kind of transformational, full-body experiences only found at the best spas: seaweed mud wraps to reduce quarantine inflammation, Nordic hydrotherapy baths to cleanse and reinvigorate weary bodies, and massages relaxing enough to let your mind wander but deep enough to relieve pent-up tension.

Micro-Cruises: The Next Generation of Water Travel

Let’s face it: we all love vacationing on cruises because they’re luxurious, pleasurable, and convenient for exploring multiple destinations in a limited timespan. Luckily, there is a way you can experience all these things and minimize the risks of spreading germs with strangers: micro-cruises. They cover a more limited distance, follow a more in-depth itinerary with fewer yet equally exciting sites, and carry up to 4, 20, or 100 passengers. YES PLEASE!
