Aston Martin addicts unite – Miami’s your new home. There are still a couple of units left in the 66-floor Aston Martin Residences Miami, which officially opened in time for last week’s Formula 1® Miami Grand Prix. Rodolfo Miani exteriors and choice of bespoke design for interiors. Over 50 owners of the 391 residences, which include seven pool penthouses, already drive Aston Martins. Rev up with the crowd.


Privatise the spa – one of the best you’ve seen – at Mas d’en Bruno, Relais’ rural treasure in Priorat wine country. Wake up in end room #50 and pop straight into its pool, Grenache vines within touch (there’s a terrace fire for perfect pampering). Later, the indoor spa’s 29-foot vitality pool is yours, with sauna and steam. Finish – now dressed - with chef Josep Queralt’s yin and yang squid and chilled Kyrie.


See the gold charm with a cut-out map of Switzerland. New York-based Melissa Fedor-Baroni started Borderline Jewelry so she and her daughter would have souvenirs of trips. Buy a Peru for memories Machu Picchu, Egypt for the pyramids, and Australia for that Bridge Climb over Sydney Harbour Bridge. Online only, 10-carat, 14-carat, 18-carat gold, or sterling. Cufflinks, keyrings - or start a travel charm bracelet.

Anything in Italy’s worth waiting for when it promises history, terrain, food and wine. Experienced entrepreneur Nicola Cortese’s pulled in the best for La Maviglia, a resort opening in Puglia’s Primitivo wine region in two years. Enzo Enea landscapes paired with 16th century structures, golf and serious wellness. Villas, suites and rooms – and indigenous nature. Olives and vines, almonds and pomegranates.


Rosewood Sand Park, near Menlo Park, is in one of California’s most popular two-wheel – and it has a cycling concierge with a difference. Philip Meyer oversees bespoke itineraries, followed by an app. Bikes are cossetted and propelled by mechanics to Tour de France order. Riders are similarly cossetted, especially by the spa. Meyer’s day job, incidentally, is hotel General Manager and RVP for Rosewood.


Adnan Khashoggi once owned the forever-legendary Fairmont Mount Kenya Safari Club near Nanyuki. So, too, did William Holden - his favourite cottage was #12, with uninterrupted mountain views. Other forever memories include evening arrivals of sweet-smelling logs for your fire. And animals. 

2024 celebrates the 20th anniversary of Mount Kenya Wildlife Conservancy, with new animals arriving, a mountain Trek for the Bongo, and hotel General Manager Veronique Delattre hosts a gala fund-raising dinner.
