Amangiri, Utah The Ocean House, Rhode Island

GRAND CANYON SPECTACLE

Amangiri, Utah

Home for centuries to the native Navajo and Hopi tribes, Amangiri's minimalist property seamlessly blends into the landscape of Four Corners, where the states of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona meet. Amangiri is located in the centre of the Grand Circle, surrounded by such iconic attractions as the Grand Canyon, Bryce and Zion National Parks and Monument Valley with sweeping views towards the Grand Staircase - Escalante National Monument. Dinosaurs once flourished in this region and unearthing footprints and fossils dating back 160 million years are common. A mere 15 minutes drive to the shores of Lake Powell, skirt its shoreline touted to be longer than the Pacific Coast. Spend your days exploring the region with expert archaeologists, geologists and naturalists on guided hikes or horseback rides.

CAPE COD VICTORIAN

The Ocean House, Rhode Island

Encapsulating the sensibility of Cape Cod, but just south in Rhode Island, the white Victorian Relais & Chateaux mansion Ocean House stands high on a bluff with gracious verandas overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and a genteel green croquet lawn. Here you'll find meticulous reconstruction of a bygone era and the ambience of a private yacht club where the men wear blue blazers and the women flaunt beautiful sundresses. Oozing elegance but banishing stiffness with its friendly and devoted service, Ocean House pays tribute to New England's golden age. Rooms have a seaside feel with glorious water views, dining is sophisticated farm-to-table cuisine and their 12,000-square foot destination spa is one of only 30 in the world to receive the Forbes Five Star Award.

New England's autumn and winter is an enchanting time to visit.
