World Traveller

Welcome note


It's always exciting when a new hotel opens up, but particular­ly so when the hotel is a St. Regis. That's why when the doors opened on the brand's new canal-side property in Downtown Dubai, we were delighted to head down and capture this month's cover shot (and stay for dinner at the brilliant, rebooted Bleu Blanc, somewhere to add to your must-dine list). Speaking of to-do lists, do reserve a spot on your bucket list for the soul-stirring Desroches Island in the Seychelles. Turn to page 42 to find out why.

Elsewhere in this issue, James Stewart reports back from a tour across fascinatin­g Azerbaijan (p48); Ian Belcher is enchanted by Jordan's myriad charms (p54); and Michelin-rated chef David Myers takes us on a tour of his hometown, L.A (p18).

Plenty to put you in the mood for another great escape...
