Spa de La Mer (New York City)


There’s a new power player in the luxury spa scene in New York City. Last summer, Spa de La Mer quietly debuted two floors below ground in the sparkling Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York in midtown Manhattan.

GOCO Spa Venice at JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa (Italy)


Developed on an archipelago of 117 islands connected by more than 400 bridges, the historic city of Venice has enticed visitors to enjoy its incomparable beauty for hundreds of years. Carrying on that tradition, the JW Marriott Venice Resort & Spa (Italy) enlivens the largest island, the 40-acre Isola delle Rose (Island of Roses), which is filled with aromatic gardens and a collection of restored Romanesque buildings from the 1920s and 1930s. The manmade island formerly housed a hospital for respiratory illness but is now home to the 18,837-square-foot Goco Spa Venice and provides a luxe respite for Venetians and visitors alike…

Sunrise Springs Integrative Wellness Resort (Santa Fe, NM)

Settled into 70 acres marked by cool spring-fed ponds, cottonwood trees, and green open space, Sunrise Springs Integrative Wellness Resort (Santa Fe, NM) has taken up residence on a historic property that served as one of the original parajes (camping places) on El Camino Real 500 years ago.

You’ll be tempted to learn the secret to predicting the outcomes, like me. However, you might sincerely regret it once you know because all future “House Hunters” viewings will be forever changed. Consider yourself warned, far more than I was before embarking on this experiment, which began with a Reddit thread

Why We Love Tiny Houses (But Don’t Want to Live In One)

Many inner city apartments are, by the numbers, not too far removed from a tiny house. Yet, in terms of charm and appeal, tiny houses are in a whole different galaxy.

Through gorgeous feats of space-conscious engineering, tiny houses manage to pack the true necessities of a home into 500 (or sometimes fewer) square feet. They’re downright adorable, so we can’t help but obsess over every inch of them and the simpler way of life they represent…
