Jul 31st 2009 9:50AM Hey Quanta, thanks for pointing that out. It should be corrected in the post, but just in case, here's the link: http://tinyurl.com/nuybum
Jul 15th 2009 11:36AM Thanks, Gerd! And you're not kidding about that Swabian food, it's deeeelish and super hearty. If you're feeling homesick, here's a pic of a platter of Swabian specialties from Stuttgarten Staffele restaurant:

May 24th 2009 9:52AM It's interesting what happens when you ask people to stretch their conception of luxury! I visited this property twice, and stayed a week last summer. It was a simple, elegant and deeply luxurious stay. I met and spoke to many guests, from all around the world, and the common theme was the sense of finding a magical spot, a special place off the beaten path.
I think that some of you are reacting to the hammocks throughout the property, and the fact that this is a historic, centuries-old property. So here's the great thing, if this is not your brand of vodka, you're spoiled for choices of modern, five-star hotels all around the world. I've stayed in plenty, enjoy them and discuss many of them here on Luxist, to wit: http://www.luxist.com/2009/05/02/maui-four-seasons-announces-special-rates/

The links were to an earlier article about an outrigger canoe/whale watching program at the Maui Four Seasons.
May 2nd 2009 3:35PM Hi DJ, what a great spot for a honeymoon! The hotel underwent a huge renovation in 2007, so I bet you and your wife will be pleasantly surprised when you return for your 20th anniversary.
Apr 20th 2009 12:37PM Many thanks, Hector, for the alert! I checked with Chris Melendez, 4Copas USA president, and he confirmed that 4Copas (www.4copas.com) received USDA organic certification in 2007. I've corrected the post.
Apr 20th 2009 10:50AM Hi Hector, thanks for the comment. I know that 4 Copas is organic tequila, but I was under the impression that its certification did not come from the USDA.
But I'm going to look into this further and I will report back.
