Virtuoso Traveler - June/July 2018 - 42

To Your Health

the nervous system, lung health, and skin.
At the 13-room Imanta Resorts Punta de
Mita, the three-story, butler-serviced Tree
House - perched on a cliff overlooking
the Pacific and ensconced by lush jungle
foliage - offers the best of both worlds.
Be sure to take a deep cleansing breath
on the expansive wood terraces wrapping around this private villa, which is
punctuated by a thatched rooftop. "The
highlight," adds Virtuoso advisor Annette
Sordoni of Sherman Oaks, California, "is
the private beach that only Tree House
guests can access." Another watery retreat
can be found just beyond the villa's doorstep: A waterfall cascades into the Tree
House's trio of private freshwater pools -
two of which are temperature controlled.

TIP

Doubles from $760; Virtuoso travelers
receive breakfast daily, one dinner for two,
and, with stays of five nights or more, two
60-minute massages. Tree House from
$5,500 for two to four guests.
ON THE COVER

SAFARI
Lion Sands Game Reserve |
Mpumalanga, South Africa

Breakthroughs in brain health are big in
today's headlines, and recent findings
indicate that activities such as going on
safari can actually cause your brain to
develop. The thinking: Exposure to novel
environments causes new dendrites to
form. Pair it with the rush of mood-lifting
dopamine from perceived risk, and you

have one healthy adventure. However,
hearing a lion roar or a hyena cackle possesses little danger when you're perched
in the Kingston Treehouse at Lion Sands.
Guests can simply lift the drawbridge
of the 645-square-foot sanctuary and
sip the Veuve Clicquot chilling in their
gourmet picnic basket as the sun sets,
safely aboveground and semi-encased in
glass. Only the glow of lanterns distracts
from the bounty of stars overhead in
this electricity-free escape, one mile
from the main resort. Sojourns in one
of the reserve's three tree houses are an
add-on experience to standard stays
at the 18-room Lion Sands - the only
private reserve to straddle both Sabi Sand
Game Reserve and Kruger National Park.

"At Imanta Resorts Punta de Mita, opt for a private sunset dinner on the cliff overlooking the ocean.
Candles, indigenous flowers, Champagne, and local musicians strumming tunes just for you -

it doesn't get more romantic than that." - Annette Sordoni, Virtuoso travel advisor, Sherman Oaks, California
