UMSTEAD - Spa (5 Star)

Cary, North Carolina

 

The Umstead Spa

 

"The Umstead Spa allows you to experience art, nature and wellness while incorporating tranquil elements of nature that reflect its surrounding landscape within a wooded 10-acre resort in suburban Raleigh, North Carolina."

 


 

THE GARDEN CITY HOTEL - Hotel "Recommended" 

Long Island & The Hamptons, New York

"An atrium enlightens The Red Door Spa by Elizabeth Arden on the lower level; coffered ceilings heighten parts of the 30,000-square-foot event space while Murano chandeliers, Carrera tile, mahogany flooring, custom-made Italian furnishings — many covered in soft, supple leather — contribute to a sumptuous setting."

 


 

THE CARLYLE - Hotel (4 Star)

New York, New York

The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel

 

"Many of New York’s landmark luxury hotels of the 1930s have changed ownership over the years, and with those transitions, a number have lost a bit of their grandeur. The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel, in all of its Upper East Side glory, has managed to maintain the glamour and luxury of days past. Though owned by Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, this Manhattan landmark has kept the same classic feel, which keeps guests returning over and over again."

In 2021, the Valmont Spa at the Carlyle opened its doors alongside La Maison Valmont New York. The ultimate art and beauty destination. 

 


 

THE BEVERLY HILLS HOTEL - Hotel (5 Star)

Los Angeles, California

"While celebrities love the hotel for its luscious private bungalows (perfect for canoodling and doing whatever else stars do), the rest of us love the tropical gardens (gorgeous) and the retro-style pool (so movie-star chic)."

 


Spa by Valmont at the Hotel Bel-Air

 

"Tucked within Hotel Bel-Air surrounded by 12 lush acres of gardens, Hotel Bel-Air Spa is a quiet, luxurious hideaway where Angelenos go for total privacy when they need to unwind.

The hotel has been a favorite of celebrities and high-profile guests since 1946, and the equally private spa, which was added to the property in 2011, has become a go-to spot for VIPs, too."

 


 

CARILLON MIAMI WELLNESS RESORT - Hotel & SPA (4 Star)

Miami, Florida

"Carillon sets the bar for lavish lifestyle destinations. More than simply a place to stay, this upscale resort is the place to go for anyone looking to get away for relaxation and recreation in an elegant, modern yet comfortable beach setting."

 

FISHER ISLAND CLUB HOTEL & RESORT - Hotel (4 Star)

Miami, Florida

"The secret is in Fisher Island Club’s mix of exclusivity, privacy and world-class amenities. With the recent completion of a multi-million interior renovation, the 1920s Vanderbilt Mansion stands as the landmark centerpiece of the grand estate. It formerly served as the winter home of William K. Vanderbilt."

 

SPA BELLAGIO - Spa (4 Star)

Las Vegas, Nevada

"The Roman-style Spa Bellagio is the height of luxury, even in over-the-top Las Vegas. The facility includes a redwood sauna, eucalyptus steam room and cold plunge pools. The staff attends to your every whim. You’ll feel pampered as you sip a latte served in Bernardaud china that fits perfectly into the armrest of a pedicure chair. Hydrotherapy services include thalasso seaweed baths, revitalizing mineral baths and aromatic Moor mud baths."


CANADA


Spa by Valmont at the Hazelton

 

"Exclusive and discreet, the Four-Star Spa at the Hazelton by Valmont offers an oasis for a quiet, luxurious experience away from the busyness of the city."


 

FAIRMONT CHATEAU WHISTLER - Hotel "Recommended" 

Whistler, British Columbia

"Fairmont Chateau Whistler echoes the style of Canada’s grand railway hotels, offering classic luxury for a mountain getaway. Outside the bustle of Whistler’s main village, the property is a short walk from the slopes on the Blackcomb side of Whistler Blackcomb resort."

 

THE SUTTON PLACE HOTEL - Hotel (4 Star) 

Vancouver, British Columbia

"From a personal concierge to a wine merchant boutique, The Sutton Place Hotel Vancouver seamlessly blends European elegance, classic charm and hospitality to create a spectacular stay in the heart of the city."

 

FAIRMONT THE QUEEN ELIZABETH - Hotel "Recommended" 

Montreal, Quebec

"Centrally located downtown, the hotel’s renovation aims to connect travellers with Montreal by bringing in local art and quirky cultural elements, fostering creativity and encouraging locals to engage with the historic building."

 

FAIRMONT TREMBLANT - Hotel "Recommended" 

Mont-Tremblant, Quebec

"Nestled at the foot of Canada’s famous Tremblant mountain, Fairmont Tremblant offers one of the best locations in this four-destination ski town."

 

LE BONNE ENTENTE - Hotel (4 Star) 

Quebec City, Quebec

" From the moment you walk into the lobby, with its honeyed wood-panelled walls and bright lighting, you get the sense that this is an impeccably designed and sophisticated establishment that’s catering to the discerning executive."


 

MEXICO & ST BARTS

 


Spa Montage Los Cabos

 

"The first thing you’ll notice about Spa Montage Los Cabos is its sheer size: at 40,000 square feet, it’s the largest spa in a destination famed for its exhaustively appointed wellness facilities.

The adults-only serenity pool, for example, is so enormous it could easily be the main pool at a smaller resort. The beauty salon, too, is impressively expansive, as are the hydrotherapy areas — steam rooms, hot and cold plunge pools — and tranquil garden lounges."

 


 

LE SERENO - "Recommended" Hotel

St.Barts

"Le Sereno realizes your St. Barts dreams. The luxury hotel puts you right along the tranquil sands of Grand Cul de Sac. Whitewashed, minimalist rooms from French designer Christian Liaigre have gauzy canopied beds, wood floors and sliding shutter doors that open to water vistas."
