Etihad Airways Opens Premium Lounge in Los Angeles

Together with Etihad Airways’ Premium Lounges in Washington, D.C., and New York’s JFK, the new First & Business Class Lounge Los Angeles is the airline’s third dedicated hospitality haven in the Americas, and the first on the US West Coast.

The new facility moves away from the normal conventions of airport lounge design, and features the same ‘Modern Arabian’ decorative elements which characterize Etihad Airways’ new international lounges. The décor draws inspiration from the geometric patterns found in the traditional and modern architecture of Abu Dhabi and its spectacular desert landscape.

Singita Lebombo Lodge Evolved

Singita has unveiled a complete evolution of Singita Lebombo Lodge in Singita’s private 33,000 acre concession in South Africa’s Kruger National Park. Singita Lebombo has always been ahead of its time but now it’s come into its own after a major overhaul – but you’ll experience the same light, space, openness and connection with nature that you’ve always known at Lebombo.  Not only does the design push the boundaries of safari style to the limit but the culinary offering at the lodge is equally game-changing with Liam Tomlin, Cape Town based founder of Chefs Warehouse, at the helm.
