If you’ve ever dreamt of spending a night surrounded by your favorite cartoons you’re in luck — the Cartoon Network Hotel is (almost) open for business.
The Cartoon Network Hotel, located in Lancaster Pennsylvania, right next to Dutch Wonderland, is now accepting bookings for its June 2020 opening. The resort is just as over-the-top as you might expect from the people that brought you the Powerpuff Girls, Adventure Time, Johnny Bravo, and more.
“From the moment you enter the lobby, you’ll realize this is unlike any place your family has stayed before,” the hotel explains on its site.”With our character-themed guest rooms and Dream Suites, it’s like having a sleepover…in a cartoon.
The hotel will feature 165 rooms, an indoor pool, an outdoor water park, a play area, a game room, a cafe where guests can dine with characters, a Cartoon Network store, and more.
“The Cartoon Network Hotel will be unlike any other property in the region,” Rolf Paegert, chief operating officer of Palace Entertainment said in a statement. “Cartoon Network characters and theming will bring the property to life and offer magical, interactive experiences around every turn. This hotel is going to set the standard for guest-focused, themed lodging immersion.”
Beyond the rooms, the Cartoon Network Hotel will also partner with Dutch Wonderland, the amusement park next door, where guests of the hotel receive special admission discounts to the park and its 35 family-friendly rides.
Though the hotel’s precise opening date isn’t set just yet, cartoon fans can start planning their late summer vacations to the park now. Standard rooms start at $289 a night and the hotel’s Dream Suites start at $489 a night.- BY STACEY LEASCA
December has arrived and with it the most magical period of the year: Christmas. It is a time of celebration, of joy and union that allows us to return, even a little, children.Many of you will be waiting for the weekend to prepare the Christmas tree and home decorations, as usual. But for several weeks now, shops, in the city streets, have shown us beautiful Christmas decorations and many ideas for decorating our homes .
Let’s see then together what are the styles and trends that are protagonists of this Christmas 2019.
One of the favorite styles of this year is the Country one. Simple atmospheres, for those who will spend the holidays in a house in the countryside, surrounded by warmth and authenticity. This style fits very well into homes where there are natural materials like stone and wood.
Rustic and warm atmospheres, to make us live our childhood memories. Then, if this is your favorite style, get yourself red and green decorations and natural elements like pine cones and berries. Checkered tartan fabrics are perfect for this style, to be inserted even inside the room with pillows and ribbons.
For the rest of the house we advise you to insert lots of wood, white and red candles and warm lights, for a unique atmosphere that warms the heart.
Another trend this year, opposed to the previous one, is to set the house in an icy environment, as if we were inside an igloo. The perfect colors for this style are white, silver and blue (not too dark but more turquoise). Glass and crystals are perfect to deface the tree as well as snowflakes and white lights.
If you want to feel even more immersed in a snowy atmosphere, place decorative polar bears and penguins, both at the entrance and under the Christmas tree, to satisfy even children.
GREEN NATURAL CHRISTMAS
This year the green color is confirmed among the trends. Trees with green elements to combine with natural wood decorations, branches, pine cones and leaves. A bright green matches very well with coppery, warm colors, such as brown and bronze.
The aim of this style is to create a woodland environment with the use of colors and natural elements. You can, then, decorate your home with little squares and little owls combined with lots of greenery, wood and delicate lights.
New entry of this Christmas is the luxury style, elegant and refined. Here, the choice of colors is wider. Bordeux, purple, pink, black are the most used for this Christmas style. Absolutely not to be missed are gold and silver, combined with glitter and velvet decorations.
The atmosphere becomes more sensual and refined. Class and elegance are the keywords for those who want to give their home a touch of glamour and chic.
Tradition, the one that can never be replaced. The one that takes us back in time and makes us children again. Yes, exactly, this is the style preferred by the little ones, because it is the freest, the one that allows us to give vent to our imagination. The only rule to follow is to abound with red, the Christmas color par excellence. The candy canes are a classic of the tradition, to hang on the tree and also on the fireplace or on the stairs.
Christmas balls in the shape of candies make it more fun, as do the reindeer, the little gingerbread man and Santa Claus. This year the gnomes are also trendy, of different sizes and colors.
These are definitely 5 trendy styles, from which to take inspiration. But the decoration of the building is above all a very personal moment, to be lived together with the family or with our loved ones, accompanied by Christmas songs, hot chocolate and maybe a nice Christmas film like ” Home Alone”. The fundamental ingredient for a perfect Christmas decoration is love, and if accompanied by fun and joy, everything will be even more magical!
Have you already decorated your tree? Which of these 5 styles is your favorite?

High-System PU (Polyuretan) Modern artificial leathers are coated with polyurethane (PU) instead of PVC, as PU is much more environmentally friendly in production, use and disposal. Conventional PU, however, has the disadvantage that moisture and bacteria can penetrate through the openness of the pores and thus permanently damage the PU. A new manufacturing process enables PU artificial leather to be produced with closed pores, so that there are no fractures in the surface – it is much more durable and hard-wearing. Our artificial leathers SOLO, KANO, JAGO, ENA and ROMY have been produced with this special PU manufacturing process, called High System PU.
Our modern faux leathers are also particularly soft and insensitive to soiling. They are quick and easy to clean. With over 300,000 rubbing cycles, our faux leathers are durable and robust. Due to their permanent bi-elasticity, the materials can be easily upholstered according to all processes customary in the upholstery industry. The advantages of High System PU faux leather are:
free of phthalate
high and permanent elongation
insulating against cold
PU is recyclable
Romy has a beautifully grained, matt surface that can hardly be distinguished haptically from genuine leather. The leather look is supported by warm natural shades.
Ena, on the other hand, is modern and bold with its smooth, metallic surface and strong accentuated colours. In addition to the classic metallic tones such as gold, copper and silver, strong tones such as orange and red stand out.
Jago has a natural leather apperance; its slight vintage look makes it extremely suitable for the furnishing of a modern hotel. It is ideal for headboards, bed surrounds and seating furniture of all kind. The authenticity of the faux leather is underlined by the colour range which concentrates on natural and grey tones.
Kano is a faux leather with a fine graphically embossed structure and a modern metallic sheen. The colour range comprises metal tones such as steel, titanium, silver and bronze as well as black and white.
Solo has a large colour palette with strong colours paired with natural leather tones. Solo is particularly beautiful in combination with upholstery fabrics from the DELIGARD series.
Colourline is an imitation leather made of PVC which is extremely durable. It stands out due its good resistance to weather influence, UV light, water, heat, cold and chemicals. 70 colours offer extensive design possibilities.
Life & Soul Magazine’s Travel Guide to Eco Spas will whet your appetite for a vacation that brings healing to holidaymakers in accommodations that work in harmony with the planet.
15. Duma Manzi Eco Lodge & Spa, Richmond, South Africa
The African wilderness is a place of serenity, harmony and balance where Mother Nature remains largely untouched and her animal kingdom roam freely. Duma Manzi Eco Lodge & Spa has made it possible for holidaymakers seeking a private sanctuary to experience this unique landscape and setting at its wellness and wildlife retreat in South Africa.
Nestled in the heart of the forest valley in KwaZulu Natal, Duma Manzi Eco Lodge & Spa is set within a 5,000 hectare reserve in Richmond, along the banks of the free flowing Mkomazi River and majestic sandstone cliffs. Around one hour’s drive from Durban, the reserve consists of undulating plateaus and hills, steep densely wooded slopes, valleys and a large central basin. As rich and diverse as its landscape, the reserve is also home to wildlife including giraffes, buffaloes, zebras, leopards, blue wildebeests and African wildcats, in addition to more than 300 species of birds including the African Crowned Eagle.
To share this space with such beings is a pleasure and a blessing for those who vacation at Duma Manzi Eco Lodge & Spa. Naturally the eco lodge and spa exists in complete harmony with its surroundings. The lodge – which has been constructed using natural and local materials including wood, glass, sandstone and recycled bricks – operates without electricity, instead utilising a generator and solar power for its energy requirements.
The interiors of Duma Manzi Eco Lodge & Spa, achieved using only environmentally-friendly paints and products, borrow from classic colonial African style – an inviting blend of luxury and homely comfort. Each room complete with private wooden deck serves as a window to the reserve, featuring stunning views of the river and mountains in the distance. In keeping with the way nature intended the area to be, the rooms have no modern conveniences such as air-con, TV, fridges or kettles, encouraging guests to be at one with Mother Nature and her animal kingdom.
With the great wider wilderness on the doorstep, guests can enjoy nature trails, birdwatching, star gazing and fishing self-guided or via guided trails, as well as game drives with local experts. Duma Manzi Eco Lodge & Spa balances adventure with relaxation, offering guests spa facilities including a rock plunge pool, Jacuzzi, steam room and holistic treatments for rejuvenation or relaxation.
At Duma Manzi Eco Lodge & Spa there is an emphasis on local heritage – the lodge itself largely staffed by locals enabling guests to experience local knowledge and wisdom that you won’t find in a guide book, and to sample regional cuisine made from locally-sourced ingredients.
Duma Manzi Eco Lodge & Spa is one of nature’s playgrounds that the imagination can envisage and go to great lengths exploring, and to be up close and personal with it physically, whether you’re native to South Africa or from further afield seeking a special retreat, is a treasure.
It’s nearly impossible to visit Tunisia without noticing the beautiful doors. They’re everywhere. I often found myself lost in an ancient medina only to look at my camera roll and realize I’d spent the last 30 minutes taking pictures of doors.
In Tunisia, doors are symbolic reflecting the fortunes and happiness of the families living inside. They are generally built of palm wood reinforced with sheet metal. They are decorated with black studded nails to create complex geometric patterns. Occasionally some doors come with more floral patterns owing to the European influence.
When I visited Tunisia, I was just blown away by these doors. They’re so beautiful, and every city I visited tended to have its own unique style and color. Most doors are blue, but I saw yellow, turquoise, red, and white.
Some of the most common symbols on the doors are the crescent star, minarets flowers, and fir trees. Some of the doors have large archways allowing for a person to enter on a horse without dismounting.
Many will claim that the best doors are in Sidi Bou Said – the Santorini-like coastal town just outside Tunis – but I found that beautiful doors are located throughout the country. You just need to wander down the right side street to find the real treasures.
Most of the doors have two knockers – one for the men and one for the women. The ones on the left are used by the women, and the ones on the right are used by the men.
