With thanksgiving just around the corner, we handpicked the best locations offering luxury and magic for the most memorable experience. The venues are carefully selected thanks to their classic yet luxurious appeal, all with a strong heritage to capture the emotion and traditions of Thanks Giving.

Wequassett, Massachusetts, United States of America

The first property we selected is Wequassett, a prestigious hotel, independently owned set in the beautiful Cape Cod Bay in Massachusetts. The iconic land was discovered over 400 years ago overlooking a breathtaking crescent shaped cove. The current property was originally opened in 1925 and still offers world class dining with warm personal service standards.

The venue features manicured golf courses, elegant seaside restaurants, lavish room and suites all complimented perfectly by award-winning service standards.


The Sagamore Resort, New York, United States of America

The Sagamore Resort on Lake George has a history dating back to the 1880’s. Set on a secluded private island just 60 miles from Albany, this year-round lake resort is ideal for family vacations and one-of-a-kind luxury experiences. The property features a golf course designed by Donald-Ross, unmatched water and land activities, elegant lakeside accommodation and remarkable guest services promising to deliver a joyful Thanks Giving.

Dromoland Castle, Clare, Ireland

Established in the 16th century, Dromoland Castle is known as Ireland’s most magical address. The O’Brien’s ancestral home dates back more than 1,000 years to one of the last High Kings of Ireland, Brian Boru. Evidence of this lineage still carries through in the Dromoland Castle’s hospitality and experience. Set on a lush 450 acre estate in the beautiful town of Clare, you will discover a world of grandeur with a sense of walking in the shadow of royalty. The property features a lavish golf course, intimate spa, unmatched dining and magnificent rooms. A thanksgiving vacation to Dromoland Castle will forever be remembered as the most joyous, magical occasion.

Hosting over 192 countries, the Expo 2020 is the largest event to ever be held in the Middle East.

The purpose of the Expo is to give governments a platform to connect minds, create futures and celebrate human ingenuity.

There are 3 sub-themes at Expo 2020:

- Opportunity: How we drive capital

- Mobility: How we move

- Sustainability: How we ensure a perpetual planet

There are 192 pavilions with each country showcasing their past, present and future to the world, each expressed in their unique way. As you enter through the mobility gate you are welcomed by Alif - a UAE pavilion showcasing mobility. Alif combined art and technology to express a powerful journey of the UAE from the original settlers through to the movement of data to space travel in the future. Australia used interactive videos to demonstrate their natural and human capital and how that translates into knowledge and economic opportunity. Germany is showcasing their sustainability initiatives through interactive gamification allowing understanding for all ages. These are just a few examples of the outstanding innovation which can be seen at the event.

The Expo 2020 will be held in Dubai over the next 6 months (1 October to 2021 to 31 March 2022). It is an incredible journey with innovative experiences - it can be described as a "a Disneyland for ingenuity".
