Ever since the release of the book Where the Crawdads Sing in 2018, there has been a fascination around the mysterious American marshlands Kya Clark grew up in. The release of the movie counterpart in 2022 has inspired us to transport you within the pages of the novel by immersing you in the filming locations of New Orleans and the surrounding wetlands.VIEW EXPERIENCE
There are few things more liberating than turning the ignition and hitting the open road. The American Southwest is the spiritual home of the road trip and this 12-day adventure leaves none of its rust-red landscapes undiscovered as you pay the ultimate homage to freedom on four wheels.VIEW EXPERIENCE
California’s Pacific Coast Highway is the ultimate US family road trip, serving up sun-soaked adventure, wildlife encounters and opportunities to let your hair down every inch of the way. Instead of cries of “Are we there yet?”, your kids will be saying: “Do we have to leave?”VIEW EXPERIENCE
Explore the marshlands by kayak with an expert photographer, learning how to capture the wetlands on camera. Paddle away from the well-forged wake to snap untouched natural views and the wildlife that lives within this enigmatic wilderness.
Wander a trio of canyons with a private indigenous guide deep in Navajo territory – two of which are off-limits to other travellers. The shafts of sunlight here create a wonderful spectacle, something you’ll be unable to take your eyes off as your guide unravels the human and natural history of this enigmatic region.
Dismissing the standard tourist circuit for places not even the locals have treaded, discover Sedona’s maroon-tinted desert with your naturalist guide shedding light on how the city’s spiritual vortexes came to be, taking you to secret creeks to cool off on and the majesty of Cathedral Rock.
A sleek sanctuary is the last thing you’d expect to find in Utah’s pristine red-rock country but you’ll be awfully glad it’s here. Amangiri is a relaxing oasis in the heat of the desert and its sand-hued canvas-topped pavilions and Navajo-influenced spa treatments take inspiration from their surrounds to deliver unparalleled comfort. Even the swimming pool looks like it’s being fed by the cliff face it’s built into. Perhaps it’s apt Amangiri is in the eye of a Martian landscape, because it feels out of this world.
The playful attitude of New Orleans is perfectly reflected in the punchy style Maison de la Luz employs. Its exterior inspired by Beaux Arts architecture, the inside feels as if it’s been lifted from a Wes Anderson film with its monochrome tiled floors, art deco flourishes, plush furnishings and novelties scattered throughout the hotel that could only have been collected by the most avid of travellers. Lafayette Square and several art galleries are only steps away, while New Orleans’ French Quarter is a five-block walk away.
Just a few dusty boot imprints away from the entrance to Zion National Park, Cliffrose Lodge is ominously overlooked by one of the park’s trademark towering outcrops. Sitting beside the Virgin River, the rooms, suites and villas speckled throughout the lodge’s lush gardens make it feel like a boutique resort and mini oasis rolled into one. You will quickly cherish the peaceful ambience the lodge emits, especially if you have weary legs following a busy day traversing Zion’s rust-coloured landscapes.
Pitched close to the northern rim of the Grand Canyon, this glampsite puts you in a prime spot to enjoy the natural splendour with few others around. Your tent is simple but comfortable, yet your wild setting is so good you won’t miss the luxuries. This is peak Americana: roasting s’mores over a campfire, hiking trails peeling off in every direction, world-class stargazing and dining al fresco right on the canyon’s edge for an immense rugged vista. Here, that’s all the five-star luxury you’ll ever need.
Sitting plumb in arguably the most astounding of Sedona’s terracotta canyons, Enchantment Resort’s sensitive design melds flawlessly with its rocky surrounds. Its location was once a sacred place of restoration for ancient tribes and the resort’s tipis, Native American patterns and traditional restorative techniques in its spa are an ode to the land’s ancestors. There’s nothing the staff here don’t know about the surrounding seventy acres of wilderness, leaving you with the feeling this patch of Sedona really does possess a kind of magic.
Right on the mighty Colorado River’s and with unblemished views of russet-coloured cliffs and rock formations, the scenery all around Sorrel River Ranch is of cinematic quality. They had to get in early to nab a 240-acre swathe of this wilderness – it was established in the early twentieth century – and its rustic-chic cabins make for an archetypal ranching experience. Within easy reach of nearby Canyonlands and Arches national parks, its indulgent spa treatments and sundowners are particularly welcome after a day of high-octane activities.
Occupying a dramatic position on the swish neighbourhood of Nob Hill, Fairmont San Francisco enjoys some of the city’s best views. But this isn’t merely a hotel: the Fairmont is a symbol, landmark and legend all rolled into one. It was a sign of the city’s rebirth when it was built the year after the 1906 earthquake and the UN Charter was drafted here. Inside, the hotel cements its grande dame status with its elegant columns, wrought-iron balconies and classy clean lines. This is also where Tony Bennett first sang I Left My Heart in San Francisco and you’ll be doing the same.
Nowhere does Californian countryside quite like Carmel Valley Ranch. Pitched among five hundred acres of sweeping valleys, ancient oaks and sun-dappled farmland, the location and masterful wooden builds feel more Swiss chalet than all-American bolthole. But while the floor-to-ceiling windows are fine places to watch the world go by, this scenery isn’t just for gawping at. It’s for getting stuck into and treating as your playground, whether it’s hiking, horse-riding, beekeeping or perfecting your backhand on the tennis court. It has it all.
Sometimes, the name just says it all. That’s certainly the case with Dolphin Bay Resort & Spa, where dolphins genuinely jump out of the Pacific, like they’re putting on a show for you and your balcony is the front row. The resort is also genuinely oceanfront – any closer and you’d be in your swimwear – something you can appreciate from all angles at the resort, whether it’s from the beach, the sumptuous seafood in the restaurant or the complimentary bicycles you can ride across the coastal path.
When the likes of Carole Lombard, Clark Gable and Barbra Streisand have been, you know it’s a special place. We can’t quite put our finger on why, though. Maybe it’s the country club feel? Or the epic views of the Pacific Ocean? Perhaps it’s the daydream-inducing treatments in the spa or the cool coastal cuisine you can enjoy from the restaurant terrace. It’s most likely a sprinkling of stardust over the whole resort, a magical quality that has wooed the great and good to its glamourous shoreline for decades.
The tendency in Beverly Hills is to always be in the limelight. Even though it’s in the neighbourhood’s fabled Golden Triangle, the Maybourne prefers to take a back foot combining the effortless luxury you’d expect in this glitzy part of the world with an oasis-like calm that’s often craved by its clientele. That’s hard to believe with its grand peach-hued colonial exterior but inside it’s a languid collection of serene archways, Mediterranean murals and classic furnishings that celebrities love to hole themselves up in away from the cameras and red carpets.
Embodying the thriving arts community that Laguna Beach is known for, the Montage hotel rests on a bluff overlooking the foamy Pacific Ocean that must have inspired plenty of artists over the centuries. Their artwork adorns the Montage’s walls within, with a particular emphasis on pieces from the nineteenth-century Early California era. Dark woods and muted colours allow the artwork to express itself, while activities like kayaking, snorkelling and volleyball mean you can also indulge in California’s sun-soaked beach culture.
