Rome – Las Vegas – Maldives – Global Wellness

Honestly, anyone with taste buds within driving distance of Rome cannot afford to waste time and money by NOT heading to Cavalieri, a Waldorf Astoria hotel, for its rooftop weekend Stellar Staycation. The price, for two, is €890, which gives a room and breakfast, and a set dinner in the hotel’s ninth floor rooftop La Pergola, which, run by Heinz Beck (above), has three Michelin stars.  Here is a typical Stellar Staycation menu: Amberjack, carrots, algae and lichens; Scallops, cauliflower, caper leaves and caviar; Red chicory, peas and beetroot; Fagottelli “La Pergola”; Crustaceans with artichokes and black truffle; Turbot, chard and asparagus; Lamb with offal sauce, wild garlic and yellow dandelion; Ricotta cream with marzipan, soft pistachio and sorbet of candied oranges. You also get a welcome glass of Leclerc Rosé Champagne, pairing of four wines chosen by the sommelier. mineral water and tea or coffee.  Wow, says Girlahead, who is already salivating at the thought of this gourmet experience.

Las Vegas is associated with finest dining, superb wines and entertainment – and, obviously, also with concrete (you read that right, and Girlahead is not talking about that superb Dutch design company, Concrete!). Anyway, the World of Concrete bean-fest is coming up soon and Caesars Entertainment CEO Tom Reeg says enthusiastically that throughout his forward calendar he sees bookings both for the second half of this year and into 2022 to be extremely strong. Yippee, Girlahead loves positivity.

Talking of looking sunnyside-up, Capella CEO Nicholas Clayton confirms that anyone flying into his launch Patina resort, in The Maldives, gets a NOURISHED addictive lozenge the first night, to help overcome jet-lag. Rather than list all the ingredients, the lozenge, formed by 3-D printing, is bound in a non-sweet coating, and its layers help digestion, immunity, energy, brain and heart, and eyes, and they are anti-inflammatory and stress relieving. Methinks, says Girlahead, it is almost worth booking a ticket, now, to fly to Male just for a lozenge, plus to try this splendid new resort, of course.

You cannot help but feel well with such stimulation all around.  Let us listen again to Susie Ellis, President/CEO of the not-for-profit New York-based Global Wellness Institute, as she shares thoughts on Podcast, below:
