A MESSAGE FROM FHxD My favorite thing is to go where I’ve never been. — Diane Arbus In this summer issue of FHxD Insider, the theme is The Favorites.   We have asked some of our favorite hotels and villa partners to share their very best insider tips and insights — from favorite experiences, to favorite rooms, favorite restaurant dishes, to favorite spa treatments. From fun to fabulous, seductive to secretive, quirky to colorful, and everything in between, many of these favorites will surely entice you to jump on the next plane as soon as you’re able. Among our personal favorites are spotting moose on your creekside terrace in Utah, and the off-the-charts wine country experience in Sonoma. Take a look at the stunning properties we are honored to highlight and find your own personal favorites.  Then, when  you’re ready, reach out to us and we’ll help you create the kind of experience that will become one of your alltime favorite memories. We relish the insider tips our partners from across the globe regularly share with us, and we are thrilled to pass some of them along to you.  These hotels and villas are stunning, the rooms are spectacular, the service is impeccable, and the destinations alluring.  What sets them apart, however, is the experiences they lead to, and the intimate knowledge our partners impart to us will always ensure that your experience becomes one of your favorites.
