Gateway to Luxury

It’s hard to believe that it’s already November, a time of year when many of us are booking dingy hotels in our partner’s hometowns or gearing up to sleep (once again) in our childhood bedrooms. If you find yourself in a homestead that’s lacking in the finer touches of hospitality, we’ve got just the thing to transform any crash pad into a five-star boutique experience. Enter The Getaway, your escape from the inevitable small-town talk we encounter going home for the holidays.

Consider this playlist your gateway to two-and-a-half hours of luxury, crafted to soundtrack a pre-festivity cocktail (see below), an elaborate friendsgiving dinner party, or the post-feast food coma collapse. The Getaway is an easy-on-the-ears collection of tunes featuring breezy bossa nova, sensual smooth jazz, and a subtle nod to last Christmas. Press play and let our artisanally curated and sequenced mix deliver the boutique hotel experience to wherever it is you’ll lay your head for the long weekend.

It’s hard to say what it is about Tom Waits’s sleepy crooning about drinking in space, or Erykah Badu bouncing along to a Miles Davis tune that sets your soul at ease and makes you feel right at home. Sometimes all you need is a good pair of headphones, your drink of choice, and soothing scents from Simply Curated Travel Candle to transform your trip down memory lane into a fine resort destination. We’ve prepared two pairings to accompany your sonic excursion.
