Le Saint Géran, Mauritius L
ong stretches of white sands, azure waters, and tall palms surround the private peninsula where One&Only Le Saint Géran is located on the island of Mauritius. This, of course, makes for incredible views wherever you find yourself but also shapes your stay.

Location : Secret Bay, Dominica Recently named “World’s Best Boutique Hotel”
Adventure Awaits Crowded, overly commercialized Caribbean resorts are a cliché, but
for that island experience away from the masses and cruise ships, Secret Bay in Dominica takes you right into nature. Conceived by architect Fruto Vivas, the resort recently named “World’s Best Boutique Hotel” blends environmentally friendly design with a completely personalized, intimate experience adjacent to two beaches. Away from the island’s major towns and recently updated, Secret Bay’s six luxury villas and bungalows feature open-air, sustainablycreated designs immersed within the surrounding vegetation. Made out of Guyanese hardwood and red cedar, each 1,000- to 3,000-foot dwelling further incorporates drip irritation to save water and energyconserving, low-energy lighting and appliances. As well, an in-villa attendant addresses your needs, while at-your-service chefs can prepare your daily meals. While the room itself is stocked according to your preferences, the attendant helps arrange for your fine dining, spa sessions, and adventures throughout your time here. Curation and personalization extend beyond your living accommodations. During your time here, work with the staff to arrange for kayaking or stand-up paddle boarding trips, massage or yoga sessions, a cooking class, or even a one-man jazz performance. Since nature and the beach are literally right outside, you can take
advantage of those quintessentially Caribbean activities you’ve always wanted to do: biking through the jungle, whale watching, snorkeling, or river exploring. Yet, while Secret Bay is tucked away in the jungle, its location places it right at the center of everything. The town of Portsmouth is just a 10-minute drive away, and the island’s capital, Roseau, an hour. As well, Prince Rupert Bay, known for its secluded, white sanded beaches, is easily accessible by kayak, and during your stay, you can arrange for trips to such nearby sites as Fort Shirley at the Cabrits National Park; Indian River, where you can explore via a scuba diving trip or a traditional Caribe boat; and the Northern Forest Reserve. Reopening in November 2018, Secret Bay went through a series of changes. In addition to the restaurant, a new wellness pavilion lets visitors do their yoga classes and spa treatments right along the edge of the river. As well, The Residences at Secret Bay have opened up a select number of real estate offerings within the resort’s grounds. Situated in their own secluded areas, the Riverside Villas, Clifftop Villa Estates, and other properties feel as if they’re a part of the surrounding landscape, almost integrated with nature and positioned just above the ground, and offer owners a year-round getaway complemented by five-star resort service. ■
THE RITZ-CARLTON Takes To The Sea FIRST LUXURY HOTEL BRAND TO OFFER BESPOKE YACHT EXPERIENCES
The first of three lavish cruising yachts in this series is scheduled to
take to sea in the fourth quarter of 2019, and distinguishes Marriott International as the only provider of luxury accommodations both on land and at sea. “The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection will have a distinctive personality and the vessels are sure to be true stand outs in some of the most glamorous ports around the world,” said Herve Humler, President and Chief Operating Officer of The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, L.L.C. “This unique combination of yachting and cruising will usher in a new way of luxury travel for guests seeking to discover the world in a relaxed, casually elegant and comfortable atmosphere with the highest level of personalized service.” Itineraries are being developed with an intent to combine the
lifestyle of The Ritz-Carlton’s luxury resorts and the casual freedom of a yachting vacation. Calling at intimate and signature destinations alike, voyages will range from seven to ten days. The first ship will cruise a wide variety of destinations depending on the season, including the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, the Caribbean and Latin America. Due to the intimate size of the vessel, the yacht will call at unique locations typically not accessible to large cruise ships, from Capri and Portofino to St. Barths and the old town of Cartagena. With a relaxed pace, that includes both overnight and daytime ports of call, guests will be offered a uniquely curated destination experience. Reservations will open in May 2018. The ships of The Ritz-Carlton Yacht Collection are also available for private charter. For more information, please visit www.ritzcarlton.com/en/yachts. ■

The New Exclusive Island
Gladden Caye I
f someoneâ€™s not just going to praise a resort but also create his own, you expect him to have a track record of successes. For Gladden Caye, a unique, new resort opened on a private island in Belize, Chris Krolow, of HGTVâ€™s Island Hunters, has spearheaded the project, bringing with him 20 years of experience in the traveling business and private island real estate. For just two guests and also including a spare bedroom for their friends, the island creates an ultra-private experience.
www.ClienteleLuxury.com | 21
Krolow, the show’s executive producer and host, has made it his mission to help others find their dream property anywhere in the world, and he’s done so since 1999. His efforts materialized in his own company, Private Islands, Inc., now a leader in private island sales and rentals, and he additionally manages real estate marketplace Private Islands Online and its biannual magazine. When visiting Placencia, Belize, adjacent to the western hemisphere’s longest barrier reef, he stumbled across the island that would become Gladden, noting its white sands and surrounding turquoise-blue ocean. Thus, using the landscape as the foundation for what’s been described as Krolow’s dream project, Gladden centers around a single private modern Mayan-style villa designed for one couple and any guests. Staff members, including a chef, concierge, and manager, who reside on a second private island just two minutes away, provide the all-inclusive services expected at a larger resort and, while mostly hidden, are ready to respond at a moment’s notice. And, while the 22 | www.ClienteleLuxury.com
island itself is just a few hours from Miami, it feels as if you’re spending your vacation in a secluded Polynesian atoll halfway across the globe, while costing less than other high-end resorts where you’d share facilities with other couples. To visit, guests must first fly via helicopter from Belize, where, once you’re in the air, you get the same picturesque perspective of the barrier reef that caused Krolow to fall in love with the island. Once you’ve arrived, you can make your way to the 3,000-squarefoot villa, surrounded by aquamarine lagoons and designed to give you stunning views in any direction. Having no neighbors adds to its exclusive, intimate environment, while all support structures can’t be seen from the main house. Inside, dark woods and wide windows letting you look out at the ocean furnish the master suite, and a “privacy meter” indicates if you’re alone or if staff is visiting the island. For anyone coming along, the space in the second master bedroom sufficiently accommodates a second couple. During your stay, simply walk up to the roof
LUXE TRAVEL terrace, where panoramic views await you and you’ll have a chance to soak up the sun. In providing an all-inclusive experience, Gladden works with a rotating group of chefs from some of the world’s most renowned restaurants and pairs your dishes with a sommelier-curated wine selection. Foods reflect various local specialties, while the chefs utilize herbs grown on a nearby island and fish from the surrounding waters. And, for a truly customized experience, the staff crafts each meal to your tastes and can even fly in your favorite delicacy ahead of your trip. For whatever gets prepared, you’ll be served on the villa’s roof deck or in the chef’s kitchen. Of course, all that water, the reef, and nearby land open up opportunities for exploring everything the island and Belize’s coast have to offer. Work with the on-site concierge to schedule snorkeling in the water right outside your villa, or arrange for a trip to Gladden Spit and the Silk Cayes Marine Reserve, considered one of the world’s best scuba diving locations and a spot where, for a few months during the year, you’ll be able to swim with whale sharks. As well, depending
upon your hobbies, you’ll have the chance to try spear and deep-sea fishing, book a boat charter, or earn your scuba certification with an on-site PADI instructor. On land, rejuvenate with any of the standard treatments offered at the island’s spa, or spend some time at Placencia Village. Located at the end of a peninsula, Placencia has a few entertainment and dining choices, including restaurants, bars, and a casino, and serves as your introduction to Belize’s jungle, home to over 570 bird species, tall waterfalls, and ancient Mayan Ruins. While you can devote practically a whole day to exploring the rainforest, nearby, you can continue your journey to the Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, the world’s only jaguar preserve. Or, for those seeking more thrills, sign up for a ziplining adventure or a cave-tubing trip to get your heart racing for an afternoon. For the attractions and amenities of a luxury resort without the crowds, plan your next getaway at Gladden Private Island. gladdenprivateisland.com ■

Travel Outside The Box Adventure Closer To The Sky A
sk anyone about where to spend a vacation in Thailand, and “Phuket” is automatically on the tip of their tongues. Likely as a result, the area’s teaming with resorts that all start to feel similar after a while, and seem almost separate from the country’s history and culture. Keemala, on the other hand, centers its concept around these aspects: Specifically, the history of fictitious ancient settlers, and the island’s serene rainforest location. As such, the stories of four separate clans shape each villa’s architectural style, while the resort’s design doesn’t ignore the surrounding landscape – particularly, mature trees, waterfalls, streams, and the area’s hilly topography alongside the sea. Out of those stories, the We-Ha peoples’ universe-worshipping forms the foundation for the Tree Pool Houses. Architecturally, the villas appear to be suspended from the trees – ultimately, to put the guest closer to the sky – and inside, furniture and all other fittings are hung from the ceiling. Yet, Keemala prides itself on providing guests with a five-star experience, so each dwelling is furnished with a king-size bed in a master bedroom, a private pool, three monsoon showers, and two levels of living space.

Bird’s Nest, which consists of eight pool villas, is inspired by the Rung-Nok community – the richest and most opulent of all clans, and thought to have a higher degree of intellect and spirituality. With this in mind, the villas are interwoven for a more private experience, and offer a spacious outdoor terrace for an opportunity to bathe under the moonlight and see the ocean. Along with the villas, Keemala consists of a series of communal areas, including the lobby, pool, restaurants, and spa. Much like with the dwellings, a quiet, airy sensation pervades each space, with the surrounding outdoors always there for exploration and reflection. For this last point, many opt for this specific resort as a retreat, of sorts, and the grounds in turn have spaces for jogging, walking, yoga, and meditation. That journey further extends to the Mala spa, which, beyond standard offerings, infuses its treatments with the healing powers of sight, scent, sound, and touch, with many based on rituals from around the world. Along with raindrop healing therapy, Thai bodywork, Reiki, and VOYA seaweed massage, world-renowned practitioners in sound healing, shiatsu, Tibetan singing bowl healing, and vibrational attunement stop by throughout the year. Cuisine, too, reflects this approach. As Keemala’s considered a destination dining location, dishes served at its two restaurants not only reflect local fare but are also based on a wholesome, organic approach, made with herbs and vegetables grown in the resort’s own garden. ■ 28 | www.ClienteleLuxury.com

Embrace Baha Mar Bahamas Ultra Luxury Resort
As the latest luxury resort in the Bahamas, Baha Mar opened its doors in April 2017. This $4.2 billion development, located along the beaches of New Providence, encompasses three primary properties and various entertainment and dining facilities, all offering a dazzling array of restaurants, bars, lounges, and pools, plus the flagship ESPA spa.

Under the Grand Hyatt brand, the East and West towers entice vacationers with a total of 1,800 contemporarystyled rooms featuring high-end amenities and, better yet, views of the beach and ocean. On the property are the Convention, Arts and Entertainment Center, a 200,000 square foot indoor-outdoor facility that connects you to the casino. SLS takes a different approach with its distinctly Caribbean décor and views of Cable Bay. The resort’s 299 luxury guest rooms feature spacious amenities, while that same exclusive, curated experience extends to its restaurants, lounges, and event space. For relaxing, the invite-only Privilege Pool is surrounded by open-air cabanas and includes a dedicated concierge. Rosewood, as the newest facility, becomes even more selective. Character wise, its 235 rooms reflect the Bahamas’ British colonial influences and offer both private pools and butler service. Within the complex, its refined, sophisticated atmosphere turns into a relaxing,
laidback sanctuary for the select few staying here. Along with these three diverse accommodations, the Baha Mar Casino stands out as the Caribbean’s largest: 100,000 square feet covering 1,000 slot machines, 126 table games, betting and mobile games, and gaming salons. As a contrast, ESPA – the first location in the Caribbean – starts off with your standards and then delivers a bespoke experience reflective of the Bahamian region and culture. In between these extremes, the resort never falls short in opportunities for staying active: the Royal Blue Golf Club, a two-in-one Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course; the Racquet Club, with nine tennis courts and a worldclass tennis program; the Baha Mar Ecological Aquatic Conservation Habitat (BEACH) Sanctuary, home to three Bahamian habitats and local wildlife; and THE CURRENT, the resort’s art program, gallery, and studio space featuring works from local artists. ■
