A Fresh Look on All Things Luxurious

the Look


Less IS more! Back to basics in luxury travel…


Pumulani08_146Ever want to simply ‘forget it all’?    Get away from high tech amenities?   Escape the fast paced media barrage?!

In the new age world of high tech glitz,   these hotels have adopted the back to basic approach according to Food and Wine Magazine.   

St. John,  USVI:   In the U.S. Virgin Islands, Caneel Bay recently removed TVs and telephones from its 166 rooms.

Papoose Creek, Montana:   The new Lodge at Sun Ranch offers luxuriously refurbished homesteader cabins in a spectacular setting. 

Lake Malawi,  Africa:   And at Malawi’s new Pumulani resort, guests can avoid motorized transport by exploring Lake Malawi on a wooden dhow, a traditional African sailboat handcrafted by local builders.

And to add to this list:

Taupo,  New Zealand:    True retreats in every sense, the rooms at the Huka Lodge at Huka Falls, Taupo, New Zealand are harmonious and deliberately simple in approach. Designed to allow the beauty of the landscape to dominate while providing soft light and layers of well appointed luxury.    Luxuriously  sleep under a mesh canopy bed  in your private cabin alongside the Taupo River.     All that is missing is… Brad Pitt…

In British Columbia,  Canada,   Canadian Mountain Holidays will fly you to a remote lodge where you will enjoy nothing but wonderful food, friends and champagne powder ….  with the occasional massage and hot tub thrown in.    Better than fantastic…

Get back to basics …
