Glorious Getaway: St. Regis Princeville

Whenever we’re asked to name the favorite places we’ve traveled to, Kauai inevitably makes its way to the top of the list as does the St. Regis Princeville, our favorite place we’ve stayed on the island. Nestled right on Hanalei Bay on Kauai’s North Shore, one of the best things about this property is the incredible view, which visitors have near-constant access to (even in the shower! Check out the photo below). It’s a great choice for people who like an active vacation—guests have access to two dive spots right off the resort’s beach and can also play a round at Princeville’s renowned Makai Golf Club. One local activity that’s a must-try: stand up paddling. Rent your board from the folks at Hawaiian Surfing Adventures, whose instructors also offer surfing lessons in the bay. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, it’s worth splurging on the tasting menu at Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Kauai Grill, featuring local fare like Bigeye tuna and soy-glazed short ribs. When you’re ready for some downtime hit the pool where you can wave down waiters carrying chilled pineapple skewers, or visit the poolside spa featuring treatments with local elements like lemongrass and palm oil.

National Treasures: Enormous Champion

We’re, well, enormous fans of Enormous Champion, a Brooklyn-based design studio from creative couple Jordan Provost and Jason Wong, whose whimsical and well-made creations like this Whales Tea Towel ($25) always put smiles on our faces. Their stationery is amazing, too. We particularly love this letterpress printed, blank “Mix Tape” card ($5), perfect for sending a note just because, and this sweet “Our Love Is Here To Stay” card ($5), which also comes as a limited-edition silk screen print.

Glorious Getaway: The Surf Lodge

With the heat wave hitting NYC, we’ve been dreaming of cool breezes and the white sand of the beach. Hence this week’s Glorious Getaway, The Surf Lodge in Montauk, a boutique property with a casual, bohemian vibe on Long Island’s East End. New this summer is the property’s restaurant Byron, serving prix-fixe brunch and dinner menus designed to showcase the fresh seafood and local vegetables the area is renowned for. While you’re out East, head to the beach in Ditch Plains to watch the surfers and snack on summery treats like lobster rolls at the popular Turf Truck. Need a brunch stop on your way out of town? Check out local favorite Mr. John’s Pancake House and order their specialty, crepe suzette.
