Discovering an incredible escape plan in the former Portugese colony

Stay: andBeyond Benguerra Island Lodge, Mozambique

Hang your hat in Providence

The Dean is a harbinger of change in Providence, a taste of what’s happening with hotels in New York, Los Angeles and London. Mycah Hogan pops in for a visit -- and a locally-roasted coffee -- for our latest Stay.

A boutique hotel in SoHo, NYC

Stay: The Broome NYC

Like other cosmopolitan cities with a rich history, New York has as many layers as the Yemeni dessert Bint Al Sahn, as many nuances as Baudrillard’s Simulacra and Simulations, the subtleties of a Montrachet. In other words: it's difficult to navigate. The difference between a quiet morning of coffee and pastry or getting steamrolled by a group of shopping teens could be one block. And that’s why you’ll want to know about The Broome, a boutique hotel in a SoHo brownstone.

Come for the baths, leave for the government officials

Stay: Russo-Balt North Adventure, Kamchatka

Kamchatka isn't just that territory in Risk where Alaska's always leaking through to ruin Asia's dominant 8-player bonus. Nope, it's a real place, one that combines the enormity of the Canadian Tundra, Hawaii's volcanic peaks and Iceland's hot springs. Little does anyone know, you can technically vacation there, and not just if you're heading to Mr. Putin's Gulag Resort No. 1. No, if you happen to have connections with the Russian government (we aren't kidding), you can stay at Russo-Balt North Adventures Kamchatka instead, where lonely serenity meets luxury and soaks in thermal hot springs until it's turned nearly to jelly.
