If the glitz and glamour of jet-set St. Tropez is a tad over the top, try retreating to La Reserve Ramatuelle, a luscious new seaside spa overlooking the Côte D’Azur. Dine on exquisite, detox-friendly cuisine and park yourself on a chaise by the infinity pool, which is perched hundreds of feet above the water. Or stop by the spa for some hydrotherapy and a massage. The rooms are all cooled by the steady sea breeze, and a pillow menu assures that you’ll sleep well. Caution: Occasionally a celebrity stops by. www.lareserve-ramatuelle.com

ALL THAT JAZZ!

Old Town Warsaw will be home to cool sounds on hot July and August nights. The International Jazz at the Old Town Square is a series of free Saturday night concerts featuring a lineup combining international artists like Bryan Corbett & Funk De Nite with local Polish favorites such as the Wlodzimierz Nahorny Trio, who draw thousands a night to welcome the new jazz age. www.jazznastarowce.pl

INTERNATIONAL ART SEEN

Explore the Western Hemisphere without leaving the Rockies this month in Denver. The Biennial of the Americas features public art installations, exhibitions, music, dance and discussions of culture and politics— basically anything to the left of the prime meridian. www.biennialoftheamericas.org

EDIBLE HEIRLOOMS

Tennessee’s highest-rated hotel is getting in touch with its roots in a very literal way. The Hermitage Hotel in Nashville has announced a partnership with the Land Trust of Tennessee to plant a garden of vegetables that were popular in the 19th century on historic farmland near the hotel. The Hermitage has carefully researched seed records from the 1800s and will serve these heirloom vegetables to guests as part of the hotel’s 100th birthday celebration. If you’re interested in doing your part, pay an extra two dollars for your room to help fund the project. www.thehermitagehotel.com

PINING AWAY

It’s been a good year for Korean golfers: Y.E. Yang became the first Asian to win a PGA major, and Koreans continue to dominate the LPGA. Now comes Pine Beach, a stunning new course in Haenam built on towering headlands along the Yellow Sea. Thirteen of its holes run along the water, and the rest wind through towering cypress and pine trees. www.pinebeachcc.co.kr

JEWEL OF THE NILE

When King Tutankhamun died at age 18 in 1323 BC, he was entombed with enough treasures for two separate exhibitions. This month brings the opening of “The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs” at the Denver Art Museum, while “Tutankhamun and the Golden Age of the Pharaohs” is at New York’s Discovery Times Square Exposition until January 2. www.kingtut.org

SEVENTH HEAVEN

Paris has its share of luxury hotels, but none like the new Le Seven. The 28-room property has themed suites, including Black Diamond (shown here), and “levitating” beds and bathtubs. www.sevenhotelparis.com

To celebrate its 125th anniversary, the Boston Pops teamed up with Alec Baldwin and Chris Cooper, who will read the words of John, Robert and Edward Kennedy over music conducted by Keith Lokhart.
