Dusit Thani Maldives


This all-villa Thai retreat sits next to a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve, a feeding ground for manta rays and whale sharks. Lovers of tropical luxury prefer to feast at Dusit Thani Maldives.  Where will today take you? On a diving adventure, perhaps, or is snorkeling more your style? If you prefer to steer clear of the ocean, how about a dip in the largest swimming pool in the Maldives?

Of course, Dusit Thani Maldives also offers some land-based activities: the gym has a personal trainer and yoga instructor, the library offers internet stations as well as books, and island boutiques provide shoppers with consumer beauty. Then there is a marine biologist, children’s play area and club facility, not to mention incredible restaurants and stunning views.

Some may prefer to simply revel in their glorious accommodations at Dusit Thani Maldives. All 100 villas and residences are unique, large living spaces filled with the latest in technology and creature comforts.

Trump International Hotel & Tower New York

As iconic as the Empire State, Trump International Hotel & Tower New York is a testament to the passion and drive of a man destined to build his own empire.
When entering the Trump International Hotel & Tower New York, dress for success. Why? Because in a hotel of this caliber, you're going to want to look like you deserve the corner office ... or suite. Welcome to New York, and welcome to Mr. Trump's finest creation: "A stellar first gem in the Trump Collection crown."

Located adjacent to Central Park, the only way to dig deeper into the heart of New York is through a manhole. Trump International Hotel & Tower is the city's only Forbes Five-Star Hotel featuring a Five-Star Restaurant. Guests will enjoy the culinary wizardry of lauded Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, as well as summer dining on the Central Park-facing Mistral terrace, and a wine collection living up to Mr. Trump's rigid standards.

At day's end, retire to one of the hotel's 176 rooms or suites, and kick back in your custom-designed sofa. Taking a look out over Manhattan you think, "it's good to be king." Yes. Yes it is.

Gratineed Pineapple

I first found the recipe for the delicious tropical dessert on Pinterest and have since posted it on the Facebook page.  We had a huge response to it with plenty of paradise lovers keen to recreate this beautiful recipe at home, so I thought I would share it with you guys too.  Enjoy! x

½ cup shredded sweetened coconut
½ cup crushed gingersnap cookies
½ cup chopped macadamia nuts
½ cup sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons dark rum
1 large pineapple, leaves intact, halved lengthwise

1. Stir together coconut, gingersnap cookies and macadamia nuts. Set aside.
2. Whisk together sweetened condensed milk and dark rum. Set aside.
3. With a sharp knife slice the pineapple in half with leaves intact. Cut the core from each pineapple half and discard. With a small sharp knife carefully cut the remaining pineapple out of the shell. Cut into 1-inch cubes. Arrange pineapple halves skin side down on a rimmed baking sheet. Fill with pineapple cubes. Drizzle with half of the sweetened condensed milk mixture. Sprinkle heavily with coconut mixture. Drizzle with the remaining milk mixture.
4. Bake at 160 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.
5. Serve warm with a knife, fork and a refreshing tropical cocktail!

Anantara Si Kao Resort & Spa, Thailand


Anantara Si Kao Resort & Spa, Thailand is a luxury retreat in Krabi that caters to the mind, body, and spirit in true Thai fashion.

At Anantara Si Kao Resort & Spa, Thailand, health and wellness aren't just words, they're a way of life. Lie back and let the time honored traditions of Thai massage and Ayurvedic therapeutic remedies revitalize your spirit and detoxify your soul. Expand your horizons (and your core muscles) through early morning beachside yoga, or float like a lotus flower from a hanging beach-bed. Nourish your inner being on fresh, organic foods grown and caught locally and prepared respectfully and intuitively.

And because relaxation and play are social as much as solitude events, raise a different kind of spirit with pre-dinner cocktails while drinking in a hazy seaside view, or choose from any one of the more than 120 different wines from around the world and let yourself relax and enjoy this deserved escape.

The Betsy - South Beach, Miami, Florida

In a sea of South Beach art deco, The Betsy – South Beach stands out as a jewel of colonial hospitality. Reopened in 2009, this stately belle offers the service and gentility of a by-gone era.
Black walnut hardwood floors. Plush four-poster beds. Sunlight streaming through plantation-style shutters. These are the enchanting details you'll find at The Betsy – South Beach.

The Betsy – South Beach experience is exactly what you would hope (but be hard-pressed) to find in a hot spot like Miami Beach.

If you don't want sand in your suit, you can opt for The Deck, a rooftop sun lounge that offers an unobstructed view of the ocean, the sun, and the stars in the evening, and includes a zen garden and spa treatments for those who really want to unwind.

This gorgeous new range will bring the indoors out so your garden, patio or deck can have a makeover!  The fabric on these luxurious cushions is made from a gorgeous textured cotton/linen blend that has been treated for outdoor use so water runs off the surface, but yet the fabric is soft enough to be used indoors as well.
