Planning a brunch bash for the books? Grab your gals and head off to Indonesia to have a Bali good time. One of Bali’s best beach clubs, Sundara at Four Season Resort Bali at Jimbaran Bay is THE spot if you’re looking to lounge and sip a few boozy drinks while grazing for hours on end.

Touted as Bali’s longest brunch, this six-hour Sunday spread makes it easy to go from beach to booze to beach to bite to beach and back again. If a six-hour session of brunching isn’t on your bucket list, it’s time to add it in!

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…
