Touching down in the Big Apple, spend your first couple of nights dabbling in the pampered lifestyle of New York City’s privileged. You’ll stay at the chic and elegant Viceroy New York, conveniently placed in the heart of downtown Manhattan.

After your post-city refresher, Rhode Island invites you to turn up the grandeur and reside among the yuppies who summer in its whitewashed mansions. Located beside Newport Harbour, The Vanderbilt is a Gilded Age mansion that utilises the finer things in life, with picturesque roof terraces, secluded dining patios, and hanging chandeliers lighting its grand interior. Follow the coastal trails above the historic buildings and churches of Thames Street, play a game of lawn tennis, polo or golf, or join the yachting community on Newport’s famous harbour.
