Gorgeous Getaways

July 30, 2012 / Fun & Favorites

Summer is almost over (sorry–it must be said) and there are a few things still on our to-do list that haven’t been checked off. We’ve been to the pool, eaten al fresco, even slept a night under the stars. But darn it–we still haven’t made it out to the Okavango Delta!

That’s in Northern Botswana, by the way, at Abu Camp Safari Lodge. Six tented suites on the edge of a private game preserve of nearly 500,000 acres. Tons of elephants to see, if you can tear yourself away from the incredible room.

Here are a few other gorgeous places that will just have to wait for next year:

Fasano Boa Vista, near Sao Paolo, Brazil boasts 39 rooms in a row of concrete blocks. So cool we’d feel instantly A-list just by stepping over the threshold.

The Oberoi, Gurgaon is in New Delhi. It’s made of stainless steel and glass and every room overlooks an incredible, central reflecting pool.

When we’re in a “big city” mood, Andaz Shanghai fits the bill. It’s a chicly sparse hotel in the heart of Shanghai. (You’ll be happy to know that all minibar snacks and non-alchoholic drinks are free here, so go nuts!)

Finally, just say the word “spa” and we’re in. At the Tierra Patagonia Hotel & Spa in Chile, guests start off each day with a guided nature hike, then retreat to the spa. Yes please.

So when you’ve booked these spots for next summer (notice we’ve helpfully linked each place to its website–you’re welcome), let us know.

Maybe we’ll run into one another in the hallway!
