Get in touch today to saturate your spring in gorgeous hues and exceptional experiences. For travel near or far, I can’t wait to plan your safe and hassle-free springtime escape!

EXPERIENCE SPRINGTIME IN SCOTLAND

EMBARK ON A 10-DAY PRIVATE LUXURY TOUR WITH ARTISANS OF LEISURE

This 10-day luxury tour of Scotland combines the fascinating culture and history of Edinburgh, the spectacular beauty of the Highlands and the Isle of Skye (where those cute Scottish coos graze), and the unique outdoor activities of Gleneagles, an exceptional country resort in Perthshire. Enjoy private touring and transfers, as well as customized activities such as hiking, whiskey tasting, architecture tours, and visits to historic sites. Scotland is a magical place worth visiting any time of year, but to experience it in the spring with sunnier days, fewer crowds, and cherry blossoms in bloom is true bliss.

Private perks: All tours are private, highly personalized and completely luxurious. You’ll receive complimentary breakfasts, special amenities, and VIP treatment.

EXPERIENCE SPRINGTIME IN COSTA RICA

JOURNEY TO A SECLUDED RAINFOREST WELLNESS RETREAT

Spring is actually the optimal time to visit a Costa Rican rainforest as mid-December through April is its dry season. There are amazing properties throughout the country, but in the spirit of going green, I recommend an eco-friendly wellness escape to El Silencio Lodge & Spa. Comprised of 24 freestanding stilted accommodations to minimize environmental impact – the lodge set on 500 acres of cloud forest promotes a holistic concept of tourism. Here you’ll hike to hidden waterfalls, enjoy cultural experiences, and exceptional treatments at the nature-immersed spa. Dine on delicious organic cuisine before retreating to your elevated luxury suite.

Private perks: $100 spa credit, complimentary daily breakfast, early check-in/late check-out, upgrades, and more.

EXPERIENCE SPRINGTIME IN TUSCANY

SATISFY YOUR APPETITE IN ONE OF ITALY'S FINEST REGIONS

If your hobbies include sipping wine and soaking up the Tuscan sun surrounded by gorgeous vistas, look no further than a springtime escape to Tuscany. Springtime brings wonderfully warm and longer days, and the countryside turns lush and green with fruit trees and flowers in bloom. I recommend staying at Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco. This 5,000-acre estate is located within UNESCO’s Val d’Orcia Natural Park and in the heart of the Brunello di Montalcino wine-making region. Make yourself at home in a stylish suite or Tuscan villa with exquisitely landscaped gardens and heated, stone-clad swimming pools. Visit the on-site winery, and learn to cook a delectable three-course Tuscan meal in a private cooking lesson, or simply embrace la dolce far niente — the sweetness of doing nothing.

Private perks: €85 resort credit, complimentary daily breakfast, early check-in/late check-out, upgrades, and more.

EXPERIENCE SPRINGTIME IN ST. LUCIA

SOAK UP THE SUN AND UNBELIEVABLE VIEWS IN THE CARIBBEAN

With just 37 suites, Ladera is an intimate sanctuary of luxury, romance, and adventure. This memorable St. Lucia resort is perched 1,000 feet above the Caribbean Sea on a lush volcanic ridgeline (that doubles as a UNESCO World Heritage Site). Befitting the resort’s eco-friendly philosophy, each suite is uniquely constructed from locally harvested tropical hardwoods, stone and tile. Art lovers will appreciate that the furniture is crafted on site by St. Lucian artisans. Enjoy your own private heated plunge pool and open-air design with unobstructed views of the majestic Pitons and deep blue waters. This island is lush and spectacular any time of year, but springtime brings ideal temperatures and lesser crowds, too.

Private perks: $100 resort credit, complimentary daily breakfast, early check-in/late check-out, upgrades, and more.
