Review: Belmond La Samanna

Review: Belmond La Samanna

I sort of felt like a French billionaire as I was driven toward Belmond La Samanna on serpentine roads through lush vegetation and fragrant blossoms.

Review: Spa My Blend by Clarins, The Ritz-Carlton Toronto

Contrary to popular belief that spas are flowery, effeminate hubs, more guys are getting pampered to look and feel their best. I absolutely love getting pampered which is why last year I’ve visited three of Toronto’s finest urban retreats. My most recent visit was to Spa My Blend by Clarins at the Ritz-Carlton Toronto; situated in […]

Out of the many spectacular things Toronto has to offer its residents and visitors is its luxurious spas located in the heart of the city.  Most of Toronto’s top relaxation destinations are situated in high-end hotels around the downtown core – appropriate, given the deluxe surroundings and often-elaborate treatments on the menu, and each one of […]

Breezes Bella Costa, Varadero – Beaches, Sun, and Sea!

Every winter, the flock of snowbirds heading to Cuba for the winter grows slightly, as the idea of leaving behind the ice and snow in favor of beaches, sun, and the sea appeals to more and more Canadians, and very soon to even more U.S. Americans. Cuba is very close to opening its doors to U.S. American […]
