December 2001

Far-flung and fabulous

Well-feathered nest. Parrot Cay, a resort on a tiny private island in the Turks and Caicos islands, promises sweet seclusion in the Caribbean. The property has 56 teak-outfitted rooms, a spa offering yoga and meditation sessions, and snorkel-perfect turquoise waters. (800) 628-8929;

Artistic Fusion Exotic criollo is the cuisine of chef Wilo Benet at Pikayo. His chic new eatery at the Museum of Art of Puerto Rico in San Juan blends local dishes with Asian, Mexican and Middle Eastern influences. (787) 751-1124;

Making scents. Mynt is the freshest entry in the hot Miami club scene. The all-green, 6,000-square-foot lounge has an olfactory advantage over traditional night clubs: soothing scents waft through the venue’s ventilation system. (786) 276-6132

Refreshing. Anti-aging facials and a luxurious pool are among the offerings at the Norwich Inn & Spa. The 103-room inn, near Connecticut’s Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun resorts, also features Kensington’s, a gourmet restaurant. (800) 275-4772;

Jeeves for the weekend.

Book a weekend suite package at 51 Buckingham Gate and get a quintessentially British treat butler service. Other pamperings at the London property: breakfast in bed and an in-room three-course dinner. (011) 44-20-7769-7766;

Name That Dune Mountain Travel Sobek offers small group (up to 20) tours of Namibia’s Skeleton Coast, a remote land of sand, elephants and nomads. (800) 282-8747; -->
