letter from the publisher

Summer, summer, summer time…I know you’re already in the mood, but Jeff is going to make you really have FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out). I had to Google it myself some months back.

Spa sojourning with Nature at the Four Seasons Nevis. That’s just one island nation: Vive la Caribbean! JEFF SOBEL Contributor For me the Caribbean is a lifestyle, best enjoyed with a drink in one hand and a good book in the other.

Artwork, some sourced regionally, helps create an authentic sense of place. Water walls further reinforce the soothing sea ambience. Above me, an enormous blue circular slab – something retro-futuristic and Googie-inspired out of The Jetsons – hangs from the ceiling like a gigantic fascinator. Variegated quartzite and ceramic accents contrast with rattan and marble finishes,…
