As a native Texan (now Californian), I’ve been to San Antonio many times in the past. Based on this background, you could assume that I know the region well, right? Well, you would lose that bet as my last visit acquainted me with a Texas town I had not yet met.

HOTELS | by: LENA KATZ

The yachting lifestyle offers unparalleled escape from crowds and access to obscure destinations, but often at a tradeoff for other creature comforts. After several days of confinement in close quarters, dining on whatever the ship’s kitchen can offer, and becoming over-familiar with the limited recreation the ship can provide, just about everyone craves a stretch on dry land. In coastal or island destinations, “yachties” are a familiar niche of traveler, and many of the finer private hotels encourage them to dock at the resort marina and avail themselves of guest facilities.

After 2.5 hour drive from San Diego to Lake Arrowhead Resort & Spa, my wife and I were ready to escape the intensity of the sun and find our way to our suite. Though we had looked up weather for Lake Arrowhead prior to our trip, the fact that the lake and resort are located at such a high altitude must have played a psychological trick on us considering, even after reading the forecasts, neither of us were prepared for the heat.

The New Hard Rock Ibiza Sets a Five-Star Standard on the Sunny, Sexy Isle

RESORTS & SPAS | by: JARED PAUL STERN

Think of Ibiza and the mind conjures images of all-night dance parties on the beach, neo-hippies and modern bohemians indulging in too much sun, sand and libations. Think of the Hard Rock Hotel and you probably picture a pool party in Vegas, perhaps with the same spirit of carefree abandon but different clothes (or lack thereof), and music. Now the two have merged with the opening of the new Hard Rock Hotel Ibiza, an impressive beachfront development that brings a new dimension to Ibiza’s burgeoning luxury hospitality scene.

It was a heady scent, of vanilla and other things I couldn’t yet name. But I associated Guerlain with Shalimar and Shalimar with her, for years.
