Calling a hotel a place to stay is like saying marriage is a relationship—it's certainly true, but isn't it also something a bit more than that? This post is about something beautiful that can turn out to be quite practical too, because it all goes back to finding the right hotel—which as any seasoned traveler knows is always more than just a place to stay. What I'm talking about is not the latest theatrical-looking lobby from a famous designer or hot hotel bar worthy of Sex and the City (but more about those in due course). I'm talking about the human touch and communication, things that are seldom held up as pillars of value anymore but that are actually integral to any trip that's worthy of the designation "memorable."
Most dog owners shudder at the thought of going on vacation without their pet. Fortunately, gone are the days when pet owners had to sacrifice the length and the frequency of their vacations as a result of having four-legged companions, and for many travelers today finding pet-friendly accommodations and destinations is paramount. In fact, these days well over half of travelers who own pets take them along on their travels. Increasing the options and ease with which owners can take their furry friends may encourage these travelers to take longer, as well as more frequent trips and holidays—but until now, traveling with your pet was something of a guessing game. Travelmyth helps you find great hotels that are going to please both you and your dog (or dogs, as the case may be).
Wow... is the first word that may come to mind when you see the infinity pools at some of the superb hotels you'll find with Travelmyth. After all, what says summer more than a refreshing ribbon of cool blue that runs right up to the horizon of an even wider blue beyond? It's like getting two servings of serenity and relaxation for the price of one! Travel expert Pam Price, author of 100 Best Spas of the World, says, "I know many travelers for whom a swimming pool at their hotel is very important—not just for people like me who don't necessarily love the beach but for anyone who appreciates a lovely spot to 'chill' without having to venture too far from your hotel room." And there's a world of hotels with remarkable infinity pools to choose from—we have 8,603 in our inventory and counting.
The lockdowns have started easing in more and more countries and travelling is slowly becoming a possibility again. Some of us are starting to think that the relaxing holidays we deserve this summer might actually become reality. Since health and safety are now constantly on our minds, knowing the specific measures the hotel we're going to choose has taken would take a big load off our minds.
After the long days of quarantine and self-isolation, many of you must be dreaming of diving in crystal blue seas and spending lazy afternoons in the picturesque Greek islands. The time to make those dreams come true is now fast approaching, as Greece will be open to tourists from selected countries, including Germany, from June 15th. More specifically, the airports of Athens and Thessaloniki will start welcoming international flights from June 15th, while the rest of the country's airports will open on July 1st.
The outbreak of coronavirus has impacted everyone's daily lives and activities, with many countries implementing strict measures and urging their citizens to practice social distancing and self-isolation. Although the majority of people spend this quarantine period at their own homes, there are still some who might have just returned from a trip or whose special circumstances at home lead them to seek a place for self-isolation elsewhere. This is why certain hotels around the world are now offering quarantine packages that allow guests to spend their self-isolation period in luxury.
The Tourism Ministry of Greece has ordered the touristic accommodations of the country that operate all year round to shut down from March 23rd until April 30th 2020, as part of the preventive measures for public health protection against the coronavirus outbreak. Previously, only the seasonal hotels and accommodations had been ordered to cease operating. As an exception, only one hotel per regional unit will remain open, as well as three hotels in Athens and three in Thessaloniki. The list of the hotels and accommodations that haven't closed down during the pandemic are as follows:

When’s the best time to visit a vineyard?
There’s a time of the year when people take the most Instagram-worthy pictures of a vineyard. You’ve probably seen some of them. Couples hand-holding through the vines. Close-up of a purple grape cluster. Endorsement of a bottled wine against the backdrop of a lush vineyard. All of these are captured within a time frame.
So when is it?
If you stick to the end of this blog, I will reveal to you the secret… it’s August.
A month earlier, you get baby grapes. A month later, it’s harvest season. August is a time when summer heat ripens the grapes, revealing its colour then creating the sweetness within.

For most people, travelling is all about the destinations, the cities you visit and the people you encounter. However, a vital part of every travelling experience is accommodation, since the longer your journey lasts, the more comfortable you wish to be in your "home away from home". This is why some hotels, also known as boutique hotels, have been designed to not only offer you the very basics of accommodation, but also to make your stay there a unique experience in and of itself. The category of boutique hotels is a truly elusive one, since there is no clear-cut definition. Boutique hotels have individually decorated or themed rooms and they are usually small with a few rooms, or they may even be designer hotels. Still, every boutique hotel is a different, unique case that may not follow the norm. Today, we have gathered 8 utterly charming boutique hotels from all over the world and we invite you to delve into their magical world with us!
Dog owners, the day is finally here! You are about to go on that Miami vacation you've been saving up for. As you are heading out the door, you see your beloved dog staring up at you. "Where you going hooman?" The fur baby says with his eyes. "Can I come??" You give him all the pets and head scratches and tell him you'll be back in 1 week. As you slowly close the door, he approaches, staring at you with those big watery eyes, the look of longing across his face. "B..But, you said I'm a good boy.." he whimpers. The door closes, you sigh, and convince yourself that he'll be fine. You already know you'll have nightly Skype sessions with him, so why do you still feel so terribly guilty?

Spending time with our family and children is always very important, but we all feel a bit overwhelmed sometimes and all we need is some quiet time off, in a serene and possibly exotic place, where the sound of waves or the melodic rustle of forest leaves will be the sole sound surrounding us. This is when an adult-only hotel comes in handy. Adult-only hotels offer you a truly relaxing, carefree holiday, as children are not allowed to be accommodated (hotels in each country have a different age limit for their guests, ranging from 12 to 21 years old). Apart from a tranquil environment, many adult-only resorts offer wellness, entertainment and leisure services for a truly intimate and private getaway. Mostly located on the seafront or in natural forest and mountain settings, adult-only hotels can be found all around the globe, each with a unique local charm. We present you with 10 of the most enthralling adult-only hotels in the world and invite you to travel with us in a world of utter bliss and relaxation.
