A SUMMER OF WELLNESS

As the warmth of summer envelops us and the days stretch invitingly long, we are thrilled to bring you Monarch’s summer edition. This issue is a celebration of the vibrant spirit of summer—a time for exploration, rejuvenation, and reconnecting with the world around us.

Summer is synonymous with adventure, and in this edition, we aim to inspire your next journey with a curated selection of luxury resorts that enrich not only the body but also the mind and soul. This section is designed to guide you through holistic approaches to achieving balance and harmony during your travels and beyond.

We are also excited to celebrate African Americans on Broadway with the release of our  cover featuring the multi-talented Michael James Scott, who stars as the Genie in Disney’s Aladdin. And for more entertainment, we take you to Canada to one of the most exciting events occurring this Summer 2024, Montreal Jazz Festival, which celebrates the music of jazz and the spirit of community.

As we embark on this journey together, I hope this edition will inspire you to explore the world and fill your summer with music, love, and wellness.

As we embark upon this season, here’s to a summer of unforgettable melodies and harmonious discoveries. May your travels be safe, fulfilling, and enriched with the luxury that only summer can bring.

Warmest regards,

Bianca Chardei
