FOUNDER’S LETTER Welcome to Montage and the summer issue of Montage Magazine! One of my first jobs out of college was as a bell captain—supervising hotel porters— at a resort in New Jersey. I fell in love with the job, making sure everyone I came into contact with had a memorable experience. And I fell in love with the place, which hosted locals and travelers who came to enjoy the property, golf, dining, pool and more; it was like an endless summer. I’ve carried that early experience with me as Montage has grown from one Laguna Beach resort to a brand that encompasses destinations across North America. I’m thrilled to announce that in early May, we broke ground in La Quinta, in California’s Coachella Valley. The inspiring desert city will be the first to host hotels from both Montage and Pendry, the new luxury hotel brand that we launched last year. Currently, we’re eagerly anticipating next spring’s opening of our first international resort, Montage Los Cabos. Looking back, that freshfrom- college bell captain would never have guessed that his role would eventually lead to bringing a resort to the sweeping shores of Santa Maria Bay in Baja California Sur. Amid the recent whirlwind of openings, announcements and exciting new developments, I still dwell on that endless summer and feel like I’m a part of it every day when I come to work. We’ve tried to embed that feeling in this summer issue of Montage Magazine, with articles on fresh cocktails, delicious barbecue, hiking excursions, designer swimwear and, of course, sunscreen. We also highlight unique adventures to put on your itinerary this season, including scuba, snorkeling and Snuba in Hawaii and beyond. A feature story on Dubai showcases the best places to stay, play, dine and shop in the fascinating Middle Eastern city. And those with large appetites for exploration should not miss our article on culinary tourism. It can be a challenge to get into the summer state of mind when work and personal obligations constantly demand attention. But, here at Montage, our mission is to put a little of that summer magic into every moment of your stay with us, in hopes that it remains with you like it has with me all these years. Warmly, Alan J. Fuerstman Founder, Chairman and CEO
