When The Banyan Tree Group opens BANYAN TREE ILHA CALDEIRA in Mozambique’s idyllic Primeiras and Segundas Archipelago marine reserve in 2023, it will not only be bringing its philosophy of effortless, sustainable luxury to the Mozambican shores but will also highlight our neighbouring country’s reputation as one of the continent’s finest coastal destinations for well- heeled travellers.

With SKIN CAVIAR HARMONY L’EXTRAIT (R13 505), LA PRAIRIE’s scientific pursuit to restore the harmony of youth culminates in a breakthrough centred on skin’s vertical pillars – pillars essential to the structural stability of the skin yet that weaken with age. The House’s scientists unveil a milestone in caviar science: a new era in lifting and firming is initiated.
