EDITORIALE Ovidio Guaita, Editor-in-Chief

t’s a busy early summer that we are experiencing: classic destinations in recovery flanked by newcomers that nobody had thought of before; new alliances between airlines and new domestic and international routes; strategic moves dictated by the spirit of survival. For some this means salvation, and for the others the end. In this context, we insert the entry of Etihad into Alitalia. For some time many of us wondered why the Berlusconi government desired a bailout years ago against all common sense. If one really wanted to save a strong and prestigious national airline, it would have been enough to close with the past, reset the accounts and halve the staff on the basis of merit and not patronage, separate the low-cost and short and medium-haul domestic routes from the longhaul ones, aiming for quality and service in these (which has never been the strong point of the company). Today, perhaps, instead of having ourselves bought, we would be real allies. Does anyone really believe that the brand Alitalia, Air Berlin, Jet Airways, Srilankan, Air Seychelles, will exist for much longer? Go beyond your expectations with Resorts Magazine!

ZADAR EXCLUSIVE

A riot of colors, sunlight that slowly disappears. An image that fills the eye. This happens when, from the Peninsula, the oldest part of the city, one watches the setting sun in Zadar, one of the oldest cities in Croatia, which extends out toward the islands that surround its roadstead.


text and photos by Paolo Gerbaldo

ZADAR


SPECIAL | zadar

The first inhabitants of Zadar were the Illyrian Liburnians, who were followed by the Greeks, who called it Diadora until the time of Rome. Modernity was instead Venice, Napoleon and Austria.

RESORTS MAGAZINE | GIUGNO 2014


In the middle the Zadarian star shone high. It was, in fact, between the eleventh and fifteenth centuries that was set its medieval golden age, when the urban center was enriched with an enviable architectural heritage. Memories of history, continued in the following centuries, rich in literary traditions and vitality. A past that has made Zadar a non-negligible cultural destination and seaside resort.

Needless to say that New York is a complete tourist destination.

In

the Big Apple the pages written about

luxury

hospitality date back to the nineteenth century. This last theme, therefore - leaving many others aside - will suffice to get underway with M a n h a t t a n .

NEW YORK


SPECIAL | new york

New York is not Manhattan, but Manhattan is New York. The landmarks of the city are all there.


The Statue of Liberty, 128 years after its inauguration, is no longer the doorway to America but it remains a symbol of what America stands for.


SPECIAL | new york

Day and night life never stops. Excesses and surprises live in a city that is not America but now not even any longer Europe.

The Greenwich Hotel in the Village with charme

A journey that starts with the elegant Tribeca, a fashionable area. As the first stage we have The Greenwich Hotel. A place to meet and indulge.

SPECIAL | new york

he environment of Greenwich, hotel designed as a private residence, commissioned by Raphael and Robert De Niro, along with Ira Drukier and Richard Born, is elegant and familiar. Going to the basement of the Greenwich, instead, you enter into a totally Oriental atmosphere. Tranquility. Simplicity. Beauty. Discretion. Elements that characterize the Shibui Spa: a sophisticated area with a wooden structure which incorporates the features of Japanese architecture of the eighteenth century. In the Shibui Spa guests are immediately embraced - somewhat mysteriously - by a propitious atmosphere both for physical well-being and meditation alike. Furthermore, guests must not forget the the traditional Italian dishes that make up the menu of the restaurant Locanda Verde. Dedicated to the art of hospitality, The Greenwich Hotel is a corner sheltered from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan.

eaching the Upper East Side, we find a more relaxed dimension which is certainly due to its proximity to Central Park. A modern extension which ensures brightness and freshness is created by The Mark Hotel. Today this pleasant building at the corner of Madison Avenue and 77th Street, dating from1927 and just steps from the famous park, is, in fact, a hotel where design and classic features come together with a surprising result. For The Mark Restaurant by Jean-Georges, the famous JeanGeorges Vongerichten, French chef attentive to the simplicity and fresh market produce, composes a menu that dispenses subtle elaborations of classic European cuisine. Entrusted to the executive chef Pierre Schutz, the gastronomic experience of the restaurant, designed by Jacques Grange, balancing different elements, speaks of seasonal touches and great attention to the elaboration of raw materials. The Mark Restaurant, with its modern spirit, class, precise and dynamic service, gladly welcomes anyone looking both for a meeting point or a comfortable emotional refuge.
