Forest, beach or city: the choice is yours.

Setting sail

Indulge in complete privacy aboard the Alexa J yacht, designed with just one en-suite master cabin. The 38-metre schooner will wow you from start to finish with its library, study and cinema room. On board you will be treated by a personal chef cooking up Michelin-starred meals; a cruise director who can curate a personalised itinerary with activities such as exploring Kefalonia’s beaches or the artisan shops of Ithaka; and a spa therapist offering everything from sports massages to sun salutations.

Masters of disguise

Hidden in the Ahuriri Valley surrounded by snowcapped mountains, is The Lindis. Blink and you might miss it – the structure seamlessly blends into the rolling landscape below the icy peaks. Away from the main lodge, new Pods have been designed for extra privacy, but still reflect the impressive valley, quite literally, with mirrored glass walls on three sides. Luxuriously heated and totally secluded, experience the ever-changing environment in its most nuanced forms.

Beach life

Gili Lankanfushi in the Maldives is opening its doors in December to show off a new and improved look. The pièce de résistance is the resort’s Private Reserve – the largest overwater villa in the world. The library and fresh furnishings add serious style, while the state-of-the-art cinema and slide from the top deck bring a sense of fun. Marine biology is still high on the agenda here – attend a wildlife talk at Gili Veshi, the resort’s innovative marine biology centre, or join in with scuba reef cleaning.

Paws for thought

Two miles down the road from the main village at Paws Up, Montana is the hidden tranquility of The Green O. The new resort is opening in 2020 with 12 private accommodations, each catering just for two. Each lodge reflects the world around it – choose from wooden stilts, a two-storey glassfaced building with a sedum living roof, colossal fireplaces or circular glass rooms. Added comforts of a hot tub, private guides to bring horses or quad bikes and an on-site spa, make this adult-only haven a true luxury among the pines.

The secrets of Paris

Home to Coco Chanel, Christian Dior and Christian Lacroix, it’s no wonder Paris is dubbed the fashion capital of the world. Indulge in Carrier’s ultimate style experiences in the capital: spend the day with a fashion expert who will lead a tour around Karl Lagerfeld landmarks, including a selection of what were his favourite Parisian hideaways, as well as flagship stores Chanel, Fendi and Karl Lagerfeld. We can also organise a trip to vintage designer shops or Maison Ernest, where you can learn how to walk elegantly in heels.
