After the very successful launch of the premier issue of LuxeGetaways Magazine in the fall, I will be the first to admit that there was a bit of pressure on me and our entire team of editors, writers and designers to continue the level of publishing that we established with that first issue. Taking the time to listen to feedback while connecting with our readers and industry partners, this Spring Issue certainly delivers on all levels. I sincerely hope that you enjoy reading through this diverse collection of travel, lifestyle and hospitality features, but also walk away feeling inspired and empowered to begin planning your own amazing getaway – whether it be a staycation to enjoy being pampered at a local hotel, or an extravagant international journey to a completely new destination.
Spring is an exciting time for travel, and we make a point of including a collection of travel opportunities to inspire our broad spectrum of readers – from the experienced Baby Boomers to the influential Millennials. Imagine a customized barge cruise with your family in France, or exploring the family-friendly destination of Singapore. Maybe you would rather go solo and take advantage of the spa and wellness programs with Six Senses. Or you are an adrenaline junky looking to live life on the edge with extreme adventure travel experiences. Perhaps discovering the LGBT-friendly destinations of Dallas, Berlin and Stockholm is more your speed. Regardless of your travel desires, we have pulled together a multitude of travel experiences for you to explore on any budget. This season, we encourage you to venture out of your comfort zone and begin planning your very own luxe getaways.
Safe travels to all of you, and thank you for continuing to be such an important part of the LuxeGetaways Magazine journey – stay connected with us on the website too, where you can flip through the quarterly magazine, and read our ongoing posts about the best of the travel, lifestyle and hospitality industries.
