In a sport that's been around for centuries, it's unusual to encounter something that hasn't already been tested, tried, proven or failed. 
We talk about tournament organization in regard to the three T's: title, team and trophy sponsors. 
Heritage clubs, in particular, aren't known for mixing up that veritable recipe for success. Why mess with what we know works? That's why I was pleasantly surprised to be introduced to Tara Gray by our mutual ac...

Styled as a series of events, in which the red carpet was rolled out across major luxury brands of South Africa, leading up to a day of rivalry polo, the organizers of the Africa Polo Open have re-imagined and rebranded this lauded event as distinctly African.
Formerly known as the Prince of Wales Cup, the Africa Polo Open debuted its new name in 2018. Celebrated photographer Themba Mbuyisa shot the 2017, 2018 and 2019 campaigns that pay homage to...

Our ninth issue of Polo Lifestyles in 2019 is also our anniversary issue. We've come a long way from the inaugural magazine we published in September 2017, but our roots and core purpose behind Polo Lifestyles  remain the same: promote luxury in and around the polo lifestyle.
Our partners and advertisers agree with the strategy. As we launch our premiere polo event, Polo Lifestyles Santa Fe International Polo Open, next month in Santa Fe, N.M., an...

I love the August issue. For the Western Hemisphere, it’s the middle of the summer season and there’s no shortage of polo to cover. For this month, we turned our attention high-quality, high-goal polo that’s matched equally with an over-the-top party (or two or three). Our top two contenders are, of course, the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in New York City and Sandpolo – British Beach Polo Championships in Dorset. The former is a one-day extravagan...

The complete transformation of the San Francisco Marina for SailGP’s second stop on the global tour, following an inaugural run in Sydney Harbor, included a pop-up, invite-only VIP tent nestled between the two anchor yacht clubs and the waterfront. Chilly winds from the water were matched by sunny skies over San Francisco for the two-day event that drew thousands of excited spectators in the grand stand as well as public areas of the waterfront, i...

ROME – An international, jet-set crowd mingled with Italian elite on the sidelines inside the Roma Polo Club VIP lounge Friday, May 24. 
The theme was distinctly Italian, with lemons and bright Adirondack chairs – both monogrammed with the St. Regis logo –  and the sun shone brightly overhead after several chillier days in the Italian capitol. 

To say the crowd of over 400 was chic is an injustice; the crowd was refined, while brimming with st...

Putting a Face on Concierge Services
Today’s market for concierge services demands the highest attention given to the smallest detail. And in the world of luxury villa rentals, concierge reputation is everything. West Indies Management Co., or simply WIMCO, whose portfolio of properties in St-Barths continues to become more and more luxurious, found that making concierge services more personable is key to happy, returning customers. 


“At WIMCO, ou...

Often reduced to one line on a menu or review, St-Barths' Chefs are driving forces behind renewal

Around 10pm we headed to our dinner reservation at L’Espirit in La Saline at the recommendation of our WIMCO concierge. The narrow and winding roads between Flamands and La Saline felt devilishly exciting in the pitch black. 


L’Espirit, in the dark, was a bit innocuous from the street parking, but once inside, a warm ambiance was cultivated with gorgeo...

Ah, fine dining: the joys and the frustrations. Sumptuous bites and novel entrées. Navigating the process of getting the table you want with the maître d’hotel. 


Wine pairings and specialty cocktails de la maison. St-Barths is a haven for all of the above, and with a few perennial favorites and fresh, can’t-miss hot spots, you definitely won’t go hungry or dissatisfied. 


Armed with our knowledgeable and connected WIMCO concierge Jules, we planned...

ARRIVE (AND DEPART) IN VIP STYLE

One of the services we always opt for in St-Barths is VIP arrival and departure with St-Barths Services. 


Brice Cagan, who's been our VIP handler for decades, strongly recommended our arrival and departure vis-a-vis San Juan, Puerto Rico.
The jet charter service serving the San Juan to St-Barths route, Tradewind Aviation, had excellent reviews from everyone. "It's the new way to go," said Stiles Bennet, president of...
