When once the sun sinks in the west,
And dewdrops pearl the evening's breast;
Almost as pale as moonbeams are,
Or its companionable star,
The evening primrose opes anew
Its delicate blossoms to the dew;
And, hermit-like, shunning the light,
Wastes its fair bloom upon the night,
Who, blindfold to its fond caresses,
Knows not the beauty it possesses;
Thus it blooms on while night is by;
When day looks out with open eye,
Bashed at the gaze it cannot shun,
It faints and withers and is gone.

DESTINATION: MALDIVES

FOLLOW ME TO FINHOLU

Last night I flew into Sydney, from the Maldives; and I'm already planning on when we can return to paradise. There are very few times I can remember, being absolutely breath taken, but arriving at the newest Club Med property; Finolhu Villas, about a 30 minute speed boat ride from Male airport, sure had me lost for words and catching my breath.

Officially opening on January 31st, 2015, this truly spectacular property, design by world renowned architect Yugi Yamakazi, is not only the ultimate in luxury accommodation, it is the very first, 100% solar run resort in the Maldives. From the electricity, air conditioning and hot water, to run the entire property produces zero emissions. It truly is the ultimate in Eco-luxury.

Arriving by speedboat, the crystal Aqua waters will have you wide eyed, they are a color so purely electric, I don't believe you could Pantone match it if you tried. Once at Finholu (which has only 52 villas on the entire island) you will be greeted by the resort's General manager, and, wait for it; your very own, personal butler.

Our villa was one of the over water bungalows, each bungalow designed to bring the outdoors in, with the ocean facing walls made to slide away, so you are inviting the ocean into the living space and bedroom, which also flows through to a bohemian luxe outdoor bathroom, so you can shower to the sound track of little lapping waves, kissing the stilts of your bungalow. Incredibly private, and each with its own private plunge pool, one of my favorite things about the villa, is the back staircase that literally takes you from the back deck into the ocean.

Club Med is known for its 'All inclusive' concepts; the price you pay includes all your food and beverage. But if you are looking for mediocre buffet food and a basic bar - you won't find that here. Dining is done in an over water restaurant. The restaurant bar has a glass floor, so you can see the sealife beneath, and the only buffet is for some lunch services that bring out their best chefs to prepare the day's fresh catch, or seafood pasta in front of you. The ala carte menu changes daily, and offers many 5 star options, across four courses.

If, like us, you also want to add in some adventure to your relaxation, I would highly recommend booking in to go Scuba Diving. Whether you are a beginner or expert diver, Maldives diving is world class, as are the Club Med Dive team. We did 5 dives on our stay at Finholu, each more breathtaking then the rest. The best way to describe it, is it feels like you are in Finding Nemo - such is the color of the reef and fish you swim with. There are many activities to do on and around the disband, all at your own pace and leisure; Diving, jet skiing, snorkeling, parasailing...or enjoy the beautiful Spa...or do what we did, and have the spa come to you, where they set up the massage bed on the deck of your villa....

I could go on and on about the incredible experience that we had, but you need to go and experience it for yourself. The Maldives is a place dreams of made of, and a quick Google search will show you accommodations available for all budget types. But if you wish to experience it in the most luxurious way, you cannot go past Club Med Finholu Villas.

Journey into paradise. –SWx

TAYLOR SWIFT EXPERIENCE

THE GRAMMY MUSEUM

If you don’t already know, I am a HUGE fan of Taylor Swift. Of her music – yes, absolutely (I have had 1989 on repeat since release), but also of the person that she is & (in the absence of knowing her personally!) specifically the business person that she is.

At only 25 years of age, she has achieved things professionally that most musicians strive to accomplish in their entire career. She has proved the nay-sayers wrong, and has done so, all the way with dignity, raw talent, poise & professionalism.

Her ability to connect with her fans is like nothing I have seen. As the most successful artist in the world right now, she is not content to just rest on such incredible fame, but if you have heard any of her interviews, she is constantly actively sourcing new ways to engage her fans, interact with them, reward & thank them for their support. She recently opened up her homes to host some of her most die hard fans in a 1989 Secret Sessions, inviting fans into her personal environment to hear her new (then unreleased) album. Or infamously did a 13 hour meet and greet, where she had the stadium structured so fans could interact with different parts of her tour / wardrobe / tour bus, in the long line to meet her. 

I love brands. But I really love authentic brands – and Taylor Swift is next level in this department. SO – this post is to share some pictures I snapped, while in LA for work recently. Between appointments in Downtown LA, I jumped over to the Grammy Museum where there is currently (until May 10th, 2015) THE TAYLOR SWIFT EXPERIENCE EXHIBITION.

Thankyou for being so true to yourself, Taylor. You are a true inspiration.

With admiration – SWx

DESTINATION: MIAMI

THE RALEIGH HOTEL – MIAMI FLORIDA

 

On previous trips to South beach, Miami, I have dined at The Raleigh Hotel, and fell in love with its boho luxe eatery area. Think old palm trees that have provided shade for diners from the 1940’s through to now, dark wicker peacock chairs & dining under light bulbs suspended from the tree branches. Extending out to the most art deco pool you will ever lay eyes on, The Raleigh Hotel, like most of the gorgeous hotels on Collins Street, will make you feel like you have stepped back in time.

Known for its (stunning) art deco architecture, Miami is the place to head for fun & sun. All the hotels on the Collins Street strip back onto the beach, and if you prefer sand beneath your feet, but still mojito in hand, the bar service extends from your hotel down to the ocean.

I love the thought of staying at a place that people have been staying at since the 1940’s, the glamour of the times & the changing fashion of the crowds over the years I find incredibly intriguing. In the hotel lifts, you will see old photos of the property, in beautiful black & white – they are stunning to look at while staying in the very location. Having resided at The Raleigh Hotel on my most recent work trip to the 305 (which was a VERY welcomed escape from the New York winter!) it was very low key & relaxing (except for the 80 kilometre an hour jetski Will took me on – sweet jesus!), made even more so by the poolside service of fish tacos & mojitos.

As the property is east facing, make sure you get up early to catch at least one sunrise up over the ocean, and for the best sun down, we headed one evening to the Mondrian for a cocktail or 3 in the hammock by the bar.

I am not into clubbing, but if you are – Miami is the place to do it! Sadly if you are looking for recommendations on that scene, you are on the wrong blog! However, I highly suggest dinner at Pubbelly Sushi – specifically the Tuna Crispy Rice Rolls & the Miso Black Cod + a night cap cocktail at The Broken Shaker.

Some photos from our adventure below (pool shot supplied by RaleighHotel.com). It was my first time using my brand new selfie stick that Will got me for Christmas – clearly I have some more practice to do with angles & lighting! 

Welcome to Miami! – SWx
