What's round in design and sleeps amongst the trees? The suspended spherical treehouses designed and innovated by Free Spirit Spheres, also known as your next birthday destination. For the outdoorsy folk, lodging in a suspended treehouse burrowed in nature is enough of a bucket list adventure - but nature does not end in your Free Spirit Sphere. The surrounding area serves as outdoor stomping grounds filled with adventurous activities like kayaking and hiking.

Cozy up in nature's man-made pods. Get the crew and go hiking. Celebrate your birthday amongst the trees and stars.

If there’s one thing you instantly notice about W Punta de Mita upon arrival, it’s the colorful, bold and bright décor. Embracing the artistry of the indigenous Huichol people, the hotel’s many art installations and bold architectural flourishes give this resort a personality all its own. So, when we got wind of a wedding that embraced the décor and accented it through interesting lighting installations and bold floral décor, we had to hear more.

We caught up with photographer Ana Hinojosa  about the creative and lighthearted, celebratory spirit of this 3-day wedding weekend captured in her images. If you are on the hunt for a tropical destination with a waterfront view for your special day, this just might be the venue you've been searching for!

Pull up a map of Italy. Now zoom in on the Southern end and keep your eyes peeled for a string of islands near the tip of the boot. These tiny volcanic jewels are the Aeolian Islands, one of which is the ruggedly beautiful Salina, home to the family-owned Principe di Salina—a 12-room boutique hotel that feels like a luxury private villa, overlooking the Mediterranean. 

Open from April through October, Principe di Salina is the kind of place you picture when you dream about a getaway far, far, away from your cubicle. Between the infinity pool, Sicilian-inspired decor and meals alongside deep blue sea views from your own private terrace—excuse us while we go look for flights…

REPORTER: The Venue Report

 

Known for being a place of community + gathering, The LINE Hotel welcomes travelers and neighbors alike to their “haven for creative expression” in Koreatown, Los Angeles. This summer, The LINE hosted a dinner series, aptly named “Dinner with Strangers”, that gathered influencers from all corners of the creative industry to share a meal and conversation.

The goal: to bring big thinkers together to dine and ideate on what makes a space great. The “Dinner with Strangers” series not only encouraged strangers to become friends, but also enabled a dialogue for the hotel’s team to learn more about how influencers view communal spaces, including hotels and restaurants, what qualities make a gathering space great and also what features make someone want to stay in one venue over another. The diners agreed, ambiance and emotional connection play a big role in deciding on where to stay and play.
