New York, NY
USA

We are parents, too. We think traveling well and traveling with children shouldn’t be mutually exclusive. We have limited vacation time, and we’re not spending our few days of freedom in lousy hotels eating bad food. We know the world is full of wonderful resorts, cool urban escapes and far-flung lodges that can make our time with our kids count. We want it all, and we don’t think it should be so hard to find. So we’re going to share it with you.

London's Luxury Hotel Boom

Henley Vazquez

London is shrugging off its annus horribilis and rolling out the red carpet to visitors with a glut of luxury hotel openings from city veterans like Four Seasons and Soho House to newbies including the teams behind the Experimental Cocktail Club and NYC’s Gansevoort Hotel. The trends? The City (aka London's financial heart) is no longer just for business travelers, Shoreditch is still drawing the cool crowds, and Londoners love a members club. Read on for the new arrivals topping our London lust list.

What's New in St. Barth's

Henley Vazquez

The St. Barth's season extends far beyond the winter. In fact, one of our favorite times to visit is spring and summer, when prices on the legendarily expensive hotels drop to more reasonable levels. This year, the island welcomes a new crop of stunners, from beachfront resorts to chic hilltop hideaways. Here are the places to scope out on your next getaway.


We've always said that St. Barth's is more South of France than Caribbean, and the arrival of the Sibuet Group's Villa Marie pretty much seals the deal. That signature Sibuet style transitions perfectly from St. Tropez and the Luberon to the hilltops of Colombier in this 18-room charmer, a quaint collection of bungalows and small villas. 


Le Toiny

Although Le Toiny isn't new to the island, its beachy redesign, larger villas and private beach club are, so we're calling this a must-see—and a must-stay. Every suite has a private pool plus plenty of space to fit a family, if you decide to bring the kids. Us personally, we're fantasizing about a responsibility-free getaway here stat.


Kitesurfers, take note. St. Barth's Grand Cul de Sac Bay is one of the best spots (we recently talked about some others), putting this beachfront resort square center on every kiter's wish list. But with a pool as photogenic as neighboring Le Sereno and a La Mer spa, you might not make it beyond a lounge chair.

Nicole Rubin
