Baie geluk met Aqua Mekong! Hierdie maand het die luukse seevaart Aqua Expeditions uitgebrei na Asië met die toevoeging van hul nuwe vaartuig in Vietnam en Kambodja. Vroeër was die vaartuie van die handelsmerk slegs in Peru, maar die stigter en uitvoerende hoof, Francesco Galli Zugaro, wou sien dat sy skepe teen 2014 nuwe waters bereik.

event_location = ### contact_name = ### contact_phone = ### contact_email =

'Dit was nog altyd my droom om 'n soortgelyke ervaring te bied as wat die verbeelding van ons gaste op die Peruaanse Amasone vang. Toe ek deur die Mekong tussen Viëtnam en Kambodja reis, het ek die volgende bestemming van wêreldgehalte gevind waarna ek gesoek het, ”het Zugaro gesê. 'Ek het gesit met Boeddhistiese monnike in hul afgeleë dorpe wat ons gaste in hul vergulde tempels sal verwelkom; Ek het fietspaadjies langs die skilderagtige agterwaterkanale van Viëtnam in kaart gebring; en verken die rivieroewers in Kambodja waar ons gaste privaat oomblikke kan geniet, weg van die Mekong se bedrywige lewe. ”

Planne vir Aqua Mekong begin einde 2012 en die Britse argitek David Hodkinson van Noor Design, Saigon, het die projek aangepak om die luukse vaartuig van 205 voet te skep. Hodkinson is bekend vir sy werk op vyfsterhotelle en het hierdie kundigheid gebruik om die boot met dieselfde akkommodasie, openbare ruimtes en besonderhede van hoë gehalte te bewerkstellig.

Met die gebruik van plaaslike volhoubare materiale en kunsvlyt, toon die binnekant van die vaartuig die veelsydige kulture van Mekong. Die eerste en tweede dekke huisves 20 suites, en bied akkommodasie van 320 meter met vensters van vloer tot plafon en agt met privaat balkonne. Dubbele wasbakke en 'n groot instapstort vergesel die badkamers met ekosensitiewe tegnologie en natuurlike badgeriewe.

Dit is nie net die eerste vyfster-klein luukse skip wat tussen die Mekong-delta in Viëtnam en die Koninkryk Kambodja reis nie, maar dit is ook die enigste boot van Suidoos-Asië wat ook 'n biblioteek, 'n vertoonlokaal, 'n fiksheidssentrum en 'n uitkykdek bied. Die sosiale gebiede is versier met vars tropiese blomme teen die gepoleerde houtvloere, mollige rusbanke en lugversorging vloei vrylik ('n gerief waarvoor ons dankbaar is). En aangesien slegs 40 gaste, insluitend bemanning per ekspedisie, toegelaat word, kan die personeel baie aandag gee aan die behoeftes van passasiers met 'n verhouding van 1: 1.

Uitvoerende sjef David Thompson van die restaurant Nam in Bangkok, wat die spyskaarte van die skip verskaf, bevat die tydlose geure van Suidoos -Asië en ou bestanddele te midde van tafels vol fyn porselein en sommeliers in die omgewing. Geniet die dag se vangste, die varsste produkte van die mark, brandrissies en Thaise basiliekruid, of kies eenvoudig die goeie ding: Viëtnamese ambachtelike sjokoladefondant.

Die vaart van Kambodja, Viëtnam en Mekong begin by USD $ 3,000 (per persoon/nag) en wissel van 'n avontuur van drie tot sewe nagte. Die reisplan neem passasiers deur Khmer -tempels van Angkor Wat, Ho Chi Minh -stad en onder meer in die waters van China Beach, vir 'n dieper insig in die land se kulture, geskiedenis en natuurlike landskappe.


Hierdie week in reis: 'n Jamaika -hotel van $ 35, 'n Hot New River Cruise en meer

Op 'n oomblik waaroor mense kan praat, is dit Ebola, dit is gerusstellend om te weet dat daar nog wonderlike ervarings in die reiswêreld te vinde is. Hier is 'n paar van die opwindendste ontwikkelings van hierdie week, op land en op see.

Hotel Saint-Barth Isle de France, in Saint Bart's, heropen as Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France, die derde hotel in die LVMH Hotel Management-portefeulje. Praat oor 'n stamboom-LVMH besit Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Bvlgari en 'n magdom ander kwylwaardige mode- en skoonheidsmerke. Danksy hierdie luukse besittings het die hotel die enigste Guerlain -spa in die Karibiese Eilande, kamers is toegerus met aangepaste Leanor Greyl -voedende haarprodukte, en LVMH het 'n unieke blospienk kleur geskep net vir die eiendom (nie beskikbaar in die Pantone -versameling nie). Ook nuut is The White Bar, 'n sitkamer langs die swembad en vars gaste-ervarings wat op maat gemaak is, soos die Big Blue Escape, 'n seiljagvaart van 'n hele dag met 'n kreefmiddagete op die strand.

Aan die ander kant van die spektrum is die nuwe Jack Sprat Shack van Jamaika, met tariewe vanaf $ 35 per nag. Die chique 20-kamer-hostel is oopgemaak deur die eienaars van Jakes Hotel in die stil kusdorp Treasure Beach, en het twee slaapsale, elk met 20 stapelbeddens en gedeelde baddens. Dit is nie vir almal nie, maar dit het meer styl as u gewone koshuis, met 'n eko-bewuste gevoel en 'n pragtige wit sandstrand oorkant die straat.

Die herfs is denne -heuningseisoen in Faralya, Turkye (Foto: Thinkstock)

Proe die herfs in die Mandarin Boutique Hotel in Faralya, Turkye. In Oktober beteken dit dat dit denne-heuning seisoen is. Die helder, aromatiese heuning kry sy geur uit die geurige woude rondom Faralya, wat 'n 'korf' van aktiwiteit word. Plaaslike byeboere onttrek dit op die tradisionele manier, en dit word verwerk in klein tydelike tente langs die korwe. Gedurende die spesiale loopweke van Mandarin Boutique Hotel, kan u hierdie korwe verbygaan, en as u belangstel, kan u by een van die tente kom kyk. Heuning wat plaaslik verkry word, is een van die belangrikste komponente van die tradisionele Turkse ontbyt van Mandaryns, en word ook gebruik om sommige van die koeke en gebak wat ons as deel van ons gratis middagete bedien, en die nageregte aan die einde van ons vyfgang, te versoet aandetes. Hulle laat u selfs die resepte steel.

Bonus? Die cruise op die Karibiese Eilande is oordraagbaar, sodat u dit aan familie of vriende kan gee. Ons noem dit die beste vroeë vakansiegeskenk ooit.

Kyk na die plakkaat, wat net 'n aanduiding is van wat op die Big Brew -fees kom. (Foto: Houston Big Brew/Facebook)

Houston gaan nie net oor olie nie-nou het die stad sy eie Big Brew-fees (20-26 Oktober).

Fall is pine honey season in Faralya, Turkey (Photo: Thinkstock)

Get a taste of autumn at Mandarin Boutique Hotel in Faralya, Turkey. In October, that means it’s pine-honey season. The clear, aromatic honey gets its flavor from the fragrant forests around Faralya, which become a “hive” of activity. Local beekeepers extract it in the traditional way, and it’s processed in small temporary tents put up alongside the hives. During Mandarin Boutique Hotel’s special walking weeks, you can pass these hives and if you’re interested, pop into one of the tents to watch. Locally-sourced honey is one of the key components of Mandarin’s traditional Turkish breakfasts, and is also used to sweeten some of the cakes and pastries that we serve as part of our complimentary afternoon tea, and the desserts at the end of our five-course dinners. They’ll even let you steal the recipes.

Local beekeepers extract it in the traditional way, and it’s processed in small temporary tents put up alongside the hives. During Mandarin Boutique Hotel’s special walking weeks, you can pass these hives and if you’re interested, pop into one of the tents to watch. Locally-sourced honey is one of the key components of Mandarin’s traditional Turkish breakfasts, and is also used to sweeten some of the cakes and pastries that we serve as part of our complimentary afternoon tea, and the desserts at the end of our five-course dinners. They’ll even let you steal the recipes.

The Peru-based Aqua Expeditions is bringing luxury to the world’s most amazing rivers, including the Amazon, where the brand launched.

Cruise to the Caribbean — for free! (Photo: MSC Cruises/Facebook)

Cruise Deal of the Week: The MSC Divina is heading to the Mediterranean this May, and if you book your trip before the end of October, you get the mother of all cruise deals — a free seven-night Caribbean cruise in a balcony stateroom that can be taken on select dates in November. Bonus? The Caribbean cruise is transferrable, so you can give it to family or friends. We call this the best early holiday gift ever.

Hotel Saint-Barth Isle de France, in Saint Bart’s, reopened as Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France, the third hotel in the LVMH Hotel Management portfolio. Talk about a pedigree — LVMH owns Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Bvlgari and a host of other drool-worthy fashion and beauty brands. Thanks to these luxury holdings, the hotel has the onlyGuerlain spa in the Caribbean, rooms will be stocked with custom Leanor Greyl nourishing hair products, and LVMH created a unique blush pink color just for the property (not available in the Pantone collection). Also new are The White Bar, a poolside lounge, and fresh tailor-made guest experiences like the Big Blue Escape, a full day yacht-tour with a catered lobster lunch on the beach.
