Starting this August, journey for up to six nights on the first luxury sleeper train in Ireland, the Belmond Grand Hibernian. While on board, indulge in emerald scenery, locally inspired meals and posh sleeping quarters (a staff member is assigned to each). And at station stops, take exclusive excursions, from kissing the Blarney stone to teeing off on one of Ireland’s epic golf courses.
Show your significant other some love—and signify your trip—with Ray-Ban’s engravable Remix collection. Along with a short sentiment, you can add the brand’s new heart design (“ryan <3 kate” or hawaii 2017—you can take it from here).
Destinations are changing the face of souvenirs, giving travelers the chance to handcraft keepsakes with local pros. At Castello di Casole—A Timbers Resort in Tuscany, Italy, guests work with an artist to design ceramic pieces like vases, while The Peninsula Tokyo will arrange a class for crafting traditional handblown-glass wind chimes.
Los Cabos’s Comeback
This Mexico hot spot was devastated by Hurricane Odile two years ago, but the area— famous for sun and spas—has emerged better than ever, with well-known resorts rebuilding and full-on fabulous newcomers hitting the scene. A few for your short list:
Long established as a celebrity magnet and refuge for romance, the redone Esperanza, an Auberge Resort), offers a new ceviche bar and guest rooms with private infinity-edge hot tubs.
The JW Marriott Los Cabos Beach Resort & Spa boasts the 21,000-square-foot Jasha Spa and The Griffin Club, the property’s “hotel within a hotel” where guests receive VIP service— think: butlers and chefs.
Leaning more hip than most of Cabos’s luxury lodgings, The Cape resides on surferhaven Monuments Beach and earns bragging rights for prime views of the iconic rock formation El Arco.
