Orpheus Island Lodge, Australia

Take a much-needed vacation to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. If you’re travelling, go private to the Orpheus Island Lodge. A destination favorite of our Hollywood Norse God, Chris Hemsworth recently celebrated his birthday here. Surround yourself with corral sea views and white sand beaches. Enjoy a one-of-a-kind Orpheus experience with days spent snorkeling, fishing, and island cruising.

Our tip: Opt for a tropical garden suite surrounded by lush greens you can retire to after an indigenous-inspired treatment at the Gwandalan Day Spa.

Hotel The Peninsula, Paris

“Paris” season 11, episode 14, aired with several moments of touching sentiment for the characters of Modern Family.

Terrazza Tiberio serves local Mediterranean fare in a chic setting accented with elevated vintage art and decor.
