I am delighted to welcome you to The Waldorf Astoria Magazine

In this issue, you'll travel to some of the most incredible destinations in the world, and each offers its own unforgettable experiences, all of which begin at a Waldorf Astoria.

That was the inspiration behind our new campaign, "The Stories Begin Here." Through a collaboration with actress Olga Kurylenko, renowned photographer Bruno Dayan, and award-winning author Simon Van Booy we've brought to life the possibilities that await you during your next stay at one of our more than 20 hotels and resorts.

In Rome, explore Michelin-starred chef Heinz Beck's favorite local markets, filled with just-picked produce, freshly caught seafood, and artisanal meats. Take in the unique architecture of Amsterdam as you stroll along the city's picturesque streets in the stunning Herengracht neighborhood. Discover the secrets of the famed 15th hole at the Links Course in Arizona, revealed by the head pro.

Let yourself be awed by the rare beauty of Ras Al Khaimah, Dubai's quieter sister city, whose unexpected luxuries are found nowhere else on earth. Or fall in love all over again in one of three beloved destinations for romance. There's something exceptional for every couple, whether you revel in total relaxation, crave the beauty of untouched nature, or seek out a new city.

Where will your next unforgettable moment take place? We hope you'll find inspiration on these pages and discover unique experiences that are destined to become your most cherished memories.

Global Head of Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts
