What Exactly Does a 7-Star Hotel Offer? Burj Al Arab in Dubai Has An Answer

HOTELS | by: NICOLLE MONICO

It’s pretty hard to miss Burj Al Arab in Dubai; one, because it is the only structure sitting at the end of a curving causeway that connects it to the mainland, and two, because it is shaped like a sail off the Persian Gulf coast.

LUXURY VACATIONS | by: NICOLLE MONICO

As the free-spirited type who doesn’t enjoying planning (too much), I remember jumping onto a bus in Rome during a European backpacking adventure a few years ago without knowing exactly where to go. Turns out, the city is pretty large, and that first day, I missed a lot of attractions, including The Vatican which was closed the next day.

You always fly first class (or even on a private jet), stay in five-star hotels, and dine in only the finest restaurants.

Does Temecula Valley's Wine Country Measure Up To Its Northern Neighbor, Napa Valley?

LUXURY VACATIONS | by: NICOLLE MONICO

With the pull of a lever, puffs of fire shot up above our heads, warming the surrounding air and filling the checkered-rainbow hot air balloon as we rose higher and higher. Lofty Idea, as she is called, slowly moved farther and farther from the ground, quietly showing you how small you really are. On this crystal clear day the wind was tranquil, which meant the women piloting this Wizard-of-Oz vessel would have to heavily rely on finding just the right air space to cause the balloon to move right or left.

The First Bikini Debuted Here in '46 & Today This Hotel Looks to Return to its Glory Days

HOTELS | by: NICOLLE MONICO

If you lived in Paris during the late ‘20s and early ‘30s, you may remember the Art Deco Piscine Molitor hotel in the 16th arrondissement, one of the most popular properties in the city at that time. It was opened by Olympic swimming champion and actor Johnny Weissmuller, who played Tarzan in the 1930s and 1940s. But the hotel made its name for itself for another reason; it was there that the first bikini designed by Louis Réard was debuted at the pool in 1946.
