Chatwal Lodge

The Catskills, NY  

A quick 90-minute drive from Manhattan, in the leafy Catskills mountains, you’ll find Chatwal Lodge, an Adirondack-style boutique hotel located within a 2,500-acre gated residential preserve called The Chaplin Estate. A stay at the lodge is all about embracing a slower pace with fly fishing, kayaking to secret picnic spots or unwinding with an Ayurvedic treatment in the privacy of your own room. Ten suites built with stone and wood feel quintessentially upstate New York, and cozy fireplaces make this hotel as appealing during the icy winter months as it is during warmer weather. 

Hoshino Resorts KAI Poroto

KAI Poroto


Situated on the placid shores of Lake Poroto, KAI Poroto takes full advantage of Hokkaido island’s natural hot springs with an onsite onsen: a distinctive cone-shaped bathhouse and series of steamy outdoor pools. Kai Poroto’s rooms have the calm vibe and clean lines you’d expect from Japanese interiors, with the addition of thoughtful decorative design touches inspired by the traditional motifs of the indigenous Ainu people. Aiding relaxation seems to be the goal of this hotel, and with views of the lake wherever you are on the property, it won’t be long before you’re breathing a little deeper and more slowly.

Park City, Utah

Situated right in the heart of Canyons Village, the Pendry Park City occupies a top notch location for a Utah ski resort. After a day spent whipping down some of the country’s most impressive mountains you can sample the après ski action in the Village before heading back to the Pendry Park City for a dip in the steamy rooftop pool and dinner at The Pool House Bar & Grill, the area’s only rooftop lounge with panoramic mountain views. The rooms and suites don’t disappoint either. Plush beds, window-side seating and soft natural hues throughout make winding down easy.

"This sculpture is called "Transmission" by artist Daniel Popper. Its a reminder that we are all rooted in love, unity and the divine. She stands a towering 28 feet tall and is located on Mojave Moon Ranch in Joshua Tree. The land is private property, so you can see it from the viewing platform off of Sunfair Road. And take it from me, it's best viewed at sunset."

Watching the sun rise above the clouds at Haleakalā National Park is one of the most memorable experiences you could have. Haleakalā is a Hawaiian name that means “House of the Sun” and is an awesome place to watch the clear night sky and stars fade away as the sun lights up the sky and the earth.

Just 1 hour from Shanghai by train, Cherry Blossom Valley is a popular tourist destination, particularly in the spring when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom. The valley is named after the thousands of cherry blossom trees that cover the area and create a stunning display of pink and white flowers. The trees were originally planted in the 1980s by a group of Japanese experts who were invited to China to help with reforestation efforts. The best time to visit is typically in late March or early April. Get there early to beat the crowds!
