  • Cover Story: We’re splashing out this issue, and our ‘luxury’ cover story reveals the hotels that are redefining the high-end experience — the world’s finest rooms with a view.
  • Destinations: We also head to California’s Sonoma County, discover Madagascar’s botanical oddities, spend a long weekend on Capri, feast on the food of Stellenbosch and get to know the charming Cotswolds. Our picture story, meanwhile, captures the natural larder of New Zealand’s South Island.
