Towering granite monoliths like these and more await travelers to California's Yosemite National Park.

Slide 1 of 12: Once a week, we ask our editors to share the items they've been loving or lusting after-whether it's a new skincare product we're dying to try or a travel essential we can't live without. Consider "The Weekly Covet" your editor-approved wish list for beauty, travel, fashion, and everything in between.
Slide 2 of 12: "I went to the Maldives on my honeymoon and have been dying to go back ever since-so I decided to pull the trigger and plan a trip for this spring. There are a million gorgeous hotels to choose from, but I'm excited to check out the W Maldives, which is on a super remote private island within the North Ari Atoll. Between the white sand beaches, chic overwater bungalows, and perfect reefs for diving, I'm pretty sure that after I check in I'll never want to leave." -Lindsay Silberman, Contributing EditorREAD REVIEWS W Maldives
Slide 3 of 12: "I have a confession to make: I have never been to Miami. Someday very soon I will remedy that fact. I have my sights set on the Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour, tucked inside Bal Harbor village. It’s close to the art scene and shopping, plus has the one-two punch of a pool and a beach, my truest definition of luxury."-Elizabeth Angell, Digital DirectorREAD REVIEWS Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour
Slide 4 of 12: "Being tuned in to the 24-hour news cycle is starting to take a toll on my stress levels, so this spring, I’d love to unplug in the English countryside. Located near the southern edge of the Cotswolds and just steps away from 12th Century Abbey, the Old Bell Hotel in Malmesbury would make a perfect escape. It may hold the title of the oldest hotel in England, but it offers beautiful rooms and all the modern amenities, and serves as an ideal starting point for exploring the region."-Caroline Hallemann, Senior News EditorREAD REVIEWS The Old Bell Hotel
Slide 5 of 12: "Spring is the shoulder season for traveling to the coast of Italy, but I think it's an ideal time for a seaside escape. The temperatures will still be warm and the crowds of summer tourists won't be around. A stay at the luxurious Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria overlooking the Gulf of Naples in beautiful Sorrento would be the perfect way to unwind and relax this season. "-Maggie Maloney, Associate Digital EditorREAD REVIEWS Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria
Slide 6 of 12: "People don’t often think of Arizona and Utah as being a hot destination but it’s home to some of the most gorgeous geological landscapes in the country-Bryce Canyon, Arches National Park, Zion National Park, Antelope Canyon and Lake Powell. I’ve been dying to take in sunrise and sunset vistas at each one but am most excited to experience a hike through the cavernous Antelope Canyon. After a week of roughing it in the wilderness I’m planning to post up at the Amangiri in Utah for a few days of rest and relaxation. It’s the perfect trip for spring–to beat the crowds and the heat it’s best to plan your trip between March to May."-Charlotte Chilton, Editorial Fellow READ REVIEWS Antelope CanyonREAD REVIEWS  Amangiri
Slide 7 of 12: "I've always wanted to go to Blackberry Farm, and spring would be a perfect time to get away from the bustle of NYC and take in those beautiful nature views. The food and beverage program is a big part of the draw for me (they offer famous daily cooking demonstrations, classes, and tastings) but there are also lots of other fun activities like archery, gardening, and horseback riding; like a very sophisticated, grown up summer camp."-Lauren Hubbard, ContributorREAD REVIEWS  Blackberry Farm
Slide 8 of 12: "Although New York in the spring is pretty dang charming, it’s got nothing on the South. I am planning a long overdue weekend trip to Charleston, South Carolina, to stay in the newly opened Dewberry Hotel and soak up the pastel-hued homes, warm weather, and romantic grand oak trees. In between, I plan to keep a steady rotation of biscuits, seafood, and barbecue going at all times."-Olivia Martin, Style & Interiors WriterREAD REVIEWS The Dewberry Charleston
Slide 9 of 12: "Big Sur has been on my bucket list for years and years, and I’m hoping that this spring, if not this year, I take a few days to getaway in what looks like a spectacular and beautiful coastal escape. And of course, no trip to Big Sur is complete without swinging by the Esalen Institute for a workshop and retreat."-Roxanne Adamiyatt, Senior Digital EditorREAD REVIEWS  The Esalen Institute
Slide 10 of 12: "If you're the type of person who will be searching for warmer weather throughout the spring, then a trip to Bermuda is a necessity. You can expect temperatures in the 70s and 80s throughout the season, and fewer crowds than you'll find during the summer. Stay at the Rosewood Bermuda, a luxury resort situated right on the sea with top-notch amenities and a relaxing spa."-Maggie Maloney, Associate Digital EditorREAD REVIEWS Rosewood Bermuda
Slide 11 of 12: "I recently returned from a long weekend celebrating Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and while I'd been to the city before, I spent this trip visiting all new destinations. For dinner in the French Quarter, Longway Tavern lived up to its billing on Esquire's list of 2018's Best New Restaurants (I'm still dreaming about the English peas dish, made with cauliflower cream, country ham, and breadcrumbs). I stayed at an Airbnb, but next time I'm booking a room at Hotel Peter & Paul. The 19th-century site consists of four buildings-a church, rectory, schoolhouse, and convent-that have been transformed into an impressive property that includes 71 guest rooms and The Elysian Bar, a semifinalist for the Best New Restaurant award from the James Beard Foundation."-Sam Dangremond, ContributorREAD REVIEWS Hotel Peter & Paul
Slide 12 of 12: "Want to feel like you’re in another world, but not spend the time and money on a transcontinental flight? Montreal is the answer. The French-speaking city is oft-referred to as the most European city in North America, and its mix of gorgeous outdoor spaces and cultural destinations make it the perfect springtime getaway."-Chloe Foussianes, News WriterREAD REVIEWS Hotel Monville
