We cover the globe in adventure, exotic experiences and first-class memories. We’ve been to every corner of the world, from the back roads of Chile to the riverbanks of the Danube to the singletrack of Iceland, and we’ve tested the thread-count of practically every hotel along the way. So what’s the best of our best? Drum roll, please…
Ojai Valley Inn and Spa
Transformed from former military barracks to a country club hosting Hollywood’s most glamorous elite, the Ojai Valley Inn and Spa is our favorite new source of inspiration, rest and relaxation. Here, five stars is only the start. This impeccable resort has won a host of awards including Conde Nast Traveler’s Gold List and Top 100 Resort Spas in the US, Travel and Leisure’s World’s Best Awards, and AAA’s Five Diamond Resort Award nine years in a row! With over 200 acres of beautifully manicured grounds, seven restaurants, four pools, a lavish spa and one expertly designed golf course, it’s no wonder the Ojai Resort is where we’d choose to stay if we had one night away. And to think, the Spanish-colonial-style escape is only 90 minutes from L.A.
Join us on our Ojai to Santa Barbara vacation
to rest your head in world-class style.

Lesic Dimitri Palace
If it’s an undiscovered hotel gem you want, look no further. A masterclass in first-class accommodations, Lesic Dimitri is a recently renovated 18th century Bishop’s palace tucked away in the winding alleyways of old town Korcula. Designed by an Asian-Croatian team of architects and inspired by Korčula’s famous resident, Marco Polo, and his travels along the Silk Road, every aspect of this luxury hotel was thoughtfully planned to celebrate the rich culture and exquisite beauty of the area. Best of all, this Relais & Chateaux retreat is comprised of six luxurious apartments and five medieval cottages, striking a perfect balance of intimate yet unobtrusive service.
We’ve stayed in hundreds of hotels.
