It simply doesn't get any better than this... Amazing hikes through the rainforest, showing up at our doorstep with fresh coconuts when we mentioned we were thirsty to cut them by hand, teaching our son to sail the resort's hobiecat and sailing us to Nanuku island where we snorkeled and kayaked and ate a delicious picnic lunch. Wonderful guides and storytellers--generously sharing with us their insights into Fijian culture and way of life and exposing us to places and experiences that we definitely would not have been able to see on our own.

Santorni wine making tradition

Grace Hotel An Expert’s Guide to the Top Wineries to Visit in Santorini

As Grace Hotel’s Head Chef, I’m blessed to be around so many distinctive, superbly refreshing white wines. They are the products of the island’s rich, centuries-old winemaking tradition. Crisp, minerally and bone-dry, these white wines pair wonderfully with local dishes, from the whole range of mezze spreads and refreshing salads tossed with feta or goat cheese, to lemon-accented fish and seafood dishes. Made primarily from the assyrtiko grape, which is grown on 65 percent of the ungrafted vines on the island, these wines beautifully represent their unique terroir.

Chileno Bay An Insider’s Guide to Sea Life at Chileno Bay

A favorite among Cabo San Lucas hotels on the beach, Chileno Bay Resort & Residences sits along one of Cabo’s most swimmable beaches, a half-mile stretch of golden sand that leads to some of the calmest, most tranquil waters in the region. The Blue Flag-certified beach is also home to one of Los Cabo’s best snorkeling reefs, where you’ll discover a hidden underwater world brimming with colorful sea life. “You’ll feel like you’re swimming in an aquarium,” says one recent fan.

Malliouhana A Foodie’s Encounter with Sea Urchin

As we descend down a set of wooden stairs to a secluded beach, we see the flickering glow of tiki torches. As we get closer, we can smell the fire burning amongst the tables. My husband and I are on this beach to experience the raw culinary experience.

Nanuku I Was Fijian Royalty For a Day

A trumpeting sound jolted me from my daydream as my family and I neared the entrance of Nanuku. The horn slowly grew louder as we rounded the corner, where I could see a band of drummers and greeters awaiting us. Our driver told me Fijians have used the Davui conch shell - marked by a small finger hole near the mouth of the shell...

Rattlesnake sotol at TnT Chileno Bay Resort Los Cabos

Chileno Bay An Agave Ritual at TnT

“What’s with the snake?” It’s a question I’m often asked at TnT, and for good reason. One of my favorite spirits, and one that’s displayed prominently on the counter of our open-air beachside taco bar, is Coyame Sotol, which has a whole rattlesnake curled up inside along with several scorpions. They’re said to give special healing powers. Here at TnT, we view “Caroline the Rattlesnake” as a cure-all, and bestower of good energy.

Hacienda AltaGracia My Kids Dreams Came True

When we checked-in to Hacienda AltaGracia, we knew the surprise for our kids was given away when the desk clerk confirmed our itinerary for the week. We hadn’t shared much with them about our trip, but for years they have been asking to see whales after seeing them on a nature television show.

Esperanza Have You Ever Wanted to Walk on Water?

Some of my friends say their best dreams are of when they fly in the sky, bouncing among the clouds. My favorite dreams are of walking on the water, staying just above the surface but never slipping through. Well, guess what? My dreams came true on my family’s recent vacation in Los Cabos. We did a lot of super fun things, like riding camels along the beach and taking a kids’ cooking class. But the absolute coolest part of the stay was when I got to walk on water.

Grace Hotel The Dreamiest Spot to Practice Yoga in Santorini

I’ve practiced yoga all over the world, including in India and Nicaragua for hundreds of hours of yoga training. But one of the most magical is right here in Santorini, especially at my favorite spot, on a promontory rock in front of Grace Hotel that juts out into the Aegean Sea. Here, taking in splendid views of the Caldera, I feel connected to Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine and healing; Epione, the goddess of soothing; and their daughters, goddesses of health and recuperation. I feel their ancient powers flow through with each breath and yoga pose.

cabo san lucas golf at chileno bay

Chileno Bay Los Cabos: One of North America’s Top Golf Destinations

Just over 30 years ago, golf was practically unheard of in Los Cabos. That all changed in 1987, when the 20-mile, sun-kissed stretch between the two towns of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo got its first golf course, the 9-hole Punta Sur, now known as the Course at Vidanta Los Cabos. While partially flat with modest views, it foreshadowed the future: a boom in Los Cabos golf resorts and the region’s emergence as a premier destination for golf, with more than a dozen championship courses and even more on the way.

Building Water Filtration for Fiji Village

Nanuku Moments Become Memories While Volunteering in Fiji

Thwack. The sound of a machete slicing through the air is not something most people hear every day. Yet one balmy Friday morning in March, I found myself hearing that thwack over and over as our guide Ratu led a group of guests and hotel employees through an overgrown path toward his village. As we reached a clearing and got our first look at the village we’d come to assist in building water filters, I glanced over at my teenage son in time to see his eyes widen. It’s safe to say, coming from the urban sprawl of San Francisco, neither of us had ever experienced anything quite like this before!
