September 18, 2012  |   column: WHAT'S NEW|DELIBERATE POLISH

in our latest edition of girls we love, where we spotlight women whose colorful lives and innate style inspire us, we introduce you to pavia rosati, founder & ceo of fathom—our go-to site for all-things travel. (so much so, we’ve partnered with them for our kate spade new york city guides.)

name: pavia rosati

i was born in: trenton, new jersey

…but today i live in: new york city & london

i started fathom because… my life was getting to the point where i was sending recommendations on where to go for a honeymoon in greece, a restaurant in tribeca or a week in italy to friends (or a cousin/brother/friend of a neighbor) at least once a week. fathom is the result: the dream travel website. we don’t tell you everything—choice overload is exhausting—we only share the good stuff.

the last place i traveled was… croatia. i especially loved hotel lone in rovinj, the salty italian sailor who took us around the islands on his tiny boat, and the afternoon lunch at stancija meneghetti.

my idea of a great escape is… a weekend at lo scoglio (1), a restaurant and hotel on a tourist-free strip of the amalfi coast. the food is perfect, the sea is gorgeous, the people are loving.

my favorite hotel on planet earth is… a tie between il palazzo in venice (the romance! the intrigue! the fantasy!) and amanwella (3) in sri lanka (the beach! the isolation! the swaying palms!)

i never travel without… a notebook (6).

my in-flight essential is… a few thin cashmere sweaters to layer because i can never get warm enough. planes are always freezing!

my getaway bag always includes… three fun but elegant dresses that won’t wrinkle, one pair of pants, two tank tops, a few button-down v-neck cardis, flats (5) i can walk 12 hours in, snakeskin sandals that can handle cobblestone streets and lots of gorgeous necklaces (2).

when it comes to beauty on the go… i could survive forever with amore pacific cleansing oil, bumble & bumble tonic, and hermes un jardin sur le nil perfume (4).

the most memorable meal i’ve ever had… is a tie between don alfonso (7) on the amalfi coast and le meurice (8) in paris.
