Ya, know how I love to travel the world. Well here's some more unique hotel lounging you might what to seek out outside the block!
San Jose del Cabo, Mexico
Taking farm-to-fork hotels a step further, Mexico’s Acre is going farm to fork to… frond. Having already transformed 25 acres of farmland into an open-air restaurant and cocktail bar experimenting with local Baja ingredients and forgotten Mexican spirits, from winter 2017 Acre will be encouraging guests to look up from their plates (and those #tileaddict-worthy floors) to 12 new treehouses nestled in its palm forest. (That’s if you can make it up the stairs following the obligatory tequila shots and Baja fish tacos….)
Papaya Playa Project
Originally a Design Hotels pop-up and now a permanent fixture on the Tulum coast, this 85-cabaña hotel is (quite literally) branching out with a new treehouse hideaway in the Mexican jungle. Constructed according to traditional Mayan techniques and modern eco-design, the hou...

But it’s definitely not good. WOW, check out the previous blogs in fashion the environment and its impact has on plant earth! From pollution to workers. FASHION No Snytheic clothes.
My journey down the rabbit hole started with this fact: “The global fashion industry is the second most polluting industry in the world.” You’ll hear this repeated at panels, on blogs and news sites, and anywhere else sustainable fashion is being discussed.
Intuitively, it sounds true. We’ll start with the fact that an estimated 50 million tons of polyester — a petroleum product — were produced in 2015. Growing cotton, especially if it involves pesticides, herbicides, and oil-powered machinery, is also a large carbon emitter (though not as large as polyester). And then there is the journey the multiple components of one garment take around the world on oil-gulping ships to be spun in one country, then sewn in another factor...
The Pacific Island of Papua New Guinea is on infusionofstyles bucket list to explore other than Fiji.
We as African people did travel a long distanced from our native continent.

Way out there in the Pacific Ocean, in the Milne Bay Province of Papua New Guinea, there is an island called Kitava. It is one of the four main Trobriand Islands, an archipelago with a total population of 12,000 indigenous inhabitants. Rich with culture, surrounded on all sides by clear blue water and lush rainforest, Kitava is as stunning as it is remote. But it's got more to offer than good views.
As Byrdie reports, Kitava is also home to a people whose diet and nutritional habits remain engineered for well-being, untouched by Western influence. A lifetime of not knowing the sweet, sweet sensation of the salt from a potato chip hitting the roof of your mouth has done more than just spare Kitavans from chronic ailments like dia...
infusionofstyles name a product after this city in Morocco called a unisex sugar scrub called of course morofeselbali body scrub coming this summer.
I have not travel to Morocco but my furrier friend in NYC did and she talked about her wonderful adventurous trip on a camel. Amongst other things in Morocco. To me Morocco is a cross between east and west. Now it's time to go!

Stepping through the gate into the walled Fez el Bali (old city) medina is like walking into an ancient world, almost untouched by time. Eight miles of sandstone walls enclose a disorientating maze of 9400 practically unm appable streets. Fes is the oldest of Morocco’s imperial cities and comprised of Fez el Bali (Old Fez), 13th-century Fez el Jdid (New Fez), and the 20th-century Ville Nouvelle, built by the French. Here is a quick guide to Fes, Morocco, to help you know how to best visit, what to see, do and eat.
Population: 1.1 million
Known for: ancient souks – and home t...
What started as an outback resort known as Wrotham Park Station in far north Queensland was bought by Indigenous Business Australia, dismantled, and loaded on 18 triple road trains (each roughly the length of three semi trucks) for the journey 1,740 miles across rain forest and desert to the Northern Territory's Mary River Wetlands, about an hour and a half from Darwin, adjacent to Kakadu National Park. Safari tents from Kenya were added to the modern “Habitats” and restaurant and bar to complete the immersive Australian wilderness retreat. Like the world’s best safari camps, Wildman Wilde...
Because I can! Not everyone wants to travel aboard or to this country, at the time you want to go. So just go solo. I have travel solo pretty much ALL my adult life while living in NYC. I went to Italy twice, Paris, France on New Years Eve, Germany to visit my Sister and her family during Christmas, Bahamas, Mexico, Belize, Columbia, Aruba, Singapore and Bali, Indonesia. But, I will not tell you my secret vacation spot! It's a bit of everything I truly adore in life.
Pretty much on target! Libras love to be surrounded by art and culture (and you don't mind a bit of pampering either). Find a high-end hotel with a great spa in a city like Vienna that is full of theaters, museums, and opportunities to indulge in rich food.
When infusionofstyles travel it's all the way RESORTS and always a spa is a must!

Inside the Kruger National Park lies a lodge like no other. With just six suites in total,Singita Sweni is as exclusive as it is indulgent, offering a calibre of luxury only found in a minute handful of properties around the world. Forget any ‘five star’ rating system, Singita Sweni is in a league of its own. The lodge is positioned among abnormally large packs of lions and offers two all-inclusive game drives per day, as well as a range of bush activities to keep one busy – should you find the motivation to leave your sumptuous suite. Also included are all food and drinks through your stay, alcoholic beverages, (excluding French champagne), mini-bar, room-service, and transfers to and from Singita’s private air strip.
Sounds lush? I’m just getting started.

infusionofstyles was introduced to these people, Fair Trade principal's via one of my best friend's Cecilia and Peter her husband. Who went to Botswana and stared some Safari trips and Fair Trade Craft businesses with the women of this sacred land. For more information and travel Botswana contact them. It's very bad the one of the oldest cultures in the world is dying out. If they lasted for 20,000 years + and what does that say about us in today's chemical enhance world? Do we have a shorter life, uhmm?
Caught between modernity and 20,000 years as hunter-gatherers, the San people sit at a crossroads.

We are ALL beautiful in our own cultural ways. From face tattoos to long necks, see how the standards of beauty change from one country to the next. We influence each other a little bit taken from here and changed for this. Which is what infusionofstyles is all about using the natural resources of the land for beauty treatments. Used since the beginning of time. Past down the generations.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and you don’t have to look too far to realize that’s true. We’ve all done some things in the name of beauty (eyelash extensions, Brazilian waxes and using tanning beds, to name a few) that probably seem crazy to
people in different cultures who define beauty much differently.
Here in the U.S., we may value long, flowy hair, bronzed skin and a face free of wrinkles, but in other parts of the world, pale complexions, visible scars and shaved heads are enviable traits. Here, we explore ten very different qualities that are considered beautiful around the globe. Find o...
