This November, I'm feeling extra grateful for Fora's ever-growing, tight-knit community. And I'm thrilled to welcome three new partners — from a beachfront Miami getaway to an NYC retreat to a collection of dreamy resorts across Thailand and the Maldives — into the Fora family.

Read on to learn more about these relationships — and fill out the form below to plan a trip today.

Acqualina Resort & Residences: VIP traveler perks

This elegant and laid-back resort sits on a 4.5-acre stretch of white-sand beach. All of Acqualina's suites overlook the ocean or the bay, and all come with private balconies. Here, the vibe is glamorous, sophisticated and relaxed, drawing inspiration from the Mediterranean's breezy resorts. (I love the property's chic splashes of red.) Dine on Greek food at Avra Miami, opt for Italian at Il Mulino New York or enjoy Japanese fusion at Ke-Uh. You really can't go wrong. But Acqualina's intimate beachfront dinners, where you'll enjoy a multi-course meal, is not to be missed. And because of Fora's exclusive partnership with Acqualina, you'll receive VIP perks when you book with me.

Fora Perks:

  • $100 hotel / resort credit.

  • Welcome amenity.

  • Breakfast daily.

  • Extended check-in/out whenever possible.

Soneva: VIP traveler perks

At Soneva's resorts — Soneva Fushi and Soneva Jani, in the Maldives, and Soneva Kiri, in Thailand — you have the time and space to really slow down and tune in. Soneva is intentional about everything, from sourcing sustainable materials and partnering with local communities, to cultivating on-site organic gardens and championing a "No News, No Shoes" philosophy to encourage disconnection. Soneva is for everybody (including families), but wellness enthusiasts especially will delight in their personalized programs that merge ancient healing modalities with integrative medicine — all accompanied by expert guidance. Even better, when you book with me, you'll secure special perks.

Fora Perks:

  • $100 hotel / resort credit.

  • Breakfast daily.

  • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

The Mercer: VIP traveler perks

New York City is certainly not lacking in hotels. But let me help narrow down your options: stay at the Mercer. This Downtown hideaway is where savvy locals go for a staycation. It's right in the heart of SoHo, near charming boutiques and buzzy restaurants. With six floors and 73 chicly minimalist rooms, the vibe is private but welcoming, intimate but vibrant. The location is prime, of course, but you'd be missing out if you didn't dine at the Mercer's sexy Italian restaurant Sartiano's, helmed by the James-Beard-Award-winning chef Alfred Portale. And because Fora is part of the Mercer's preferred partner program, you'll unlock VIP traveler perks when you book with me.

Fora Perks:

  • Hotel / resort credit.

  • Welcome amenity.

  • $30 daily breakfast credit.

  • Complimentary minibar snacks & soft drinks.

  • Upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.
