where to stay in costa rica right now

A GLOBETROTTER’S GUIDE TO THE LATEST IN TRAVEL THE NATURAL BEAUTY of Costa Rica lends itself to accommodations that appear as extensions of their environments. With that and sustainability in mind, several new hotels are raising the bar for both design and experience. In December, Nayara Tented Camp (nayaratentedcamp.com; tents from $1,200), a highly anticipated safari-style retreat, debuts in a sloth sanctuary at Arenal Volcano National Park, where the animals are free to roam as they please. Adjacent to the famed Nayara Hotel and Nayara Springs resort, the camp offers 29 family-friendly suites linked by footbridges across the rain forest. All have plush canopy beds and private pools fed by hot springs. Amid the tropical forests along the Pacific coast, Kasiiya Papagayo (kasiiya.com; doubles from $735, three-night minimum) opened last December as…

south africa’s secret garden

Stellenbosch and Franschhoek have made South African wines world-famous. But southeast of Cape Town, the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley (that’s Afrikaans for “heaven and earth”) is becoming a scrappy rival to those better-known appellations. With its own compelling Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs, plus tasting rooms, restaurants, and whale-watching, this region—anchored by the seaside town of Hermanus—is worth a detour the next time you visit Cape Town. Start your morning in Hermanus with a dip at Grotto Beach followed by coffee at Betty Blue Bistro (bettybluebistrohermanus.com; entrées $4–$8), a sunny all-day café. To explore the area, catch a ride on the Wine Hoppers (hermanuswinehoppers.co.za), a fleet of open-air vehicles that make a circuit of top wineries, or rent a car and assign a DD for a DIY tour. Begin on Hemel-en-Aarde Road, a mountain-flanked route…

living like a local

AFTER A NIGHTTIME train ride, I arrived in northern Tokyo’s Ueno district hungry. Luckily, my room at Nohga Hotel Ueno held the key to some of the city’s best eats: an extensive guide to the neighborhood, created by the hotel’s staff. Should I slurp ramen in umami-rich crab broth at Sanji? Dig in to a pork cutlet at tonkatsu spot Isen Honten? The choices in this neighborhood of restaurants, artisans’ workshops, and quiet pedestrian streets were myriad. That’s exactly why the 130-room hotel opened here: the Ueno location is the first community-oriented Nohga concept, which will soon land in other neighborhoods. Well before it opened last fall, staff were on the ground, digging up the district’s treasures and collaborating with neighbors to bring their wares to guests. My room embodied the…

the state of arts

EUGENE TAN, DIRECTOR, SINGAPORE ART MUSEUM “Titled ‘Every Step in the Right Direction,’ this edition of the Singapore Biennale includes work from more than 70 artists and art collectives, and expresses the belief that every effort to change the world for the better matters. It invites the visitor to take part in the process of thinking about what is right, and to use art to make the first steps toward change.” November 22, 2019–March 22, 2020; singaporebiennale.org. STEPHANIE YBARRA, ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, BALTIMORE CENTER STAGE “One of the most coveted experiences as a theatergoer is to be able to say, ‘I knew about that artist back when.’ That was how I felt when I first encountered Richard & Jane & Dick & Sally by the young playwright Noah Diaz, which imagines the children’s-book characters…
