COSTA SMERALDA – Back in 1962, flamboyant millionaire Karim Aga Khan established a consortium to buy a strip of unspoiled coastline in northeastern Sardinia, in Italy. Each investor paid roughly US$25,000 for a little piece of paradise and the coast was christened Costa Smeralda for its brilliant green-blue waters. Starting at the Golfo di Cugnana, 17 km north of Olbia, the Costa stretches 55 km northwards to the Golfo di Arzachena. These days, billionaire jet-setters cruise into Costa Smeralda’s marinas in mega-yachts like floating mansions, and models, royals, Russian oligarchs and balding media moguls come to frolic in its waters. An amazing, exclusive and elegant destination with a stunning natural beauty to inspire you and relax you.
HAMILTON ISLAND – Welcome to Hamilton Island a little slice of resort paradise where the paved roads are plied with golf buggies, steep rocky hills are crisscrossed by walking trails and the white beaches are buzzing with water-sports action. Though it’s not everyone’s idea of a perfect getaway, it’s hard not to be impressed by the selection of high-end accommodation, restaurants, bars and activities.
MACAU– Best known globally as the “Vegas of China”, the Macau Special Administrative Region is indeed a mecca of gambling and glitz. But the city is so much more than that. A Portuguese colony for more than 300 years, it is a city of blended cultures. Ancient Chinese temples sit on streets paved with traditional Portuguese tiles. The sound of Cantonese fills the air on the streets with Portuguese names. It’s a metrople of the modern world that will give you a more tech, cultural and urban inspiration.
ST BARTHÉLEMY – In the treasure-packed Caribbean, St Barthélemy (St Barth) is a multifaceted jewel. This exquisite island blends French urban flair with a lush tropical landscape of soaring mountains, isolated stretches of sun-soaked, powder-soft sand, windswept cliffs, scrubby green hills, flowering gardens filled with bougainvillea, hibiscus and fragrant frangipanis, and turquoise bays dotted with myriad sailboats.
VENICE – Imagine the audacity of building a city of marble palaces on a lagoon. And that was only the start. There never was a path so aptly named as the Grand Canal, reflecting the glories of Venetian architecture lining its banks. At the end of Venice’s signature waterway, the Palazzo Ducale and the Basilica di San Marco add double enthusiasm. But wait until you see what’s hiding in the narrow backstreets: neighborhood churches lined with Veronese and priceless marbles, Tiepolo’s glimpses of heaven on homeless-shelter ceilings and a single Titian painting that mysteriously lights up an entire basilica. It’s an iconic city and a place where you should go for a more historical and classical inspirational trip!
