Beau-Rivage Palace: cultural heritage and modernity in Lausanne

Since 1861, Beau-Rivage Palace has been proving that tradition and innovation – just like cultural heritage and modernity – can complement each other very well. The property is synonym of Switzerland’s typically excellent hospitality and it was maybe the most amazing Grand Hotel I have ever visited. I admit that explaining its grandeur is a hard task. It will be a pleasure to share my impressions with you. Enjoy the ride!

The Betsy Hotel: timeless elegance in Miami South Beach

The Betsy was pretty much the last Georgian-style hotel to be built on Ocean Drive and was called The Betsy Ross at the time. “Unique” is the right word to describe the property and its pre-deco plantation style. The absence of pool parties, nightclubs and celebrity DJs makes The Betsy stand out from its attention-starved neighbour hotels and a recent renovation has turned it into one of the best choices in South Beach.

I was there one month ago and will describe in detail how it went.

Comporta beach was the sensation of this summer. No other destination in Europe created such a buzz among the hip traveler crowd as the turquoise waters of Comporta, which is located only 120 km to the south of Lisbon.

Saint-Tropez: a glam summer in France

Saint Tropez is one of the first destinations that come into our minds when we think about European summer. And it is quite easy to understand why. It is a resort on everybody’s bucket list and if you haven’t been there yet, there is still time to book a nice stay at the French Riviera. The place hasn’t been the same lately and many of the habitués took a time off. Nevertheless, it sounds like 2017 will represent a comeback, and let’s be honest: it is always beautiful and a nice choice. Saint-Tropez offers fun for each and every taste: for those seeking never ending party with a lot of champagne and also for those who “only” want to lay back and relax in a beautiful place, with plenty of gourmet restaurants, refreshing beaches, state of art accommodation, shopping and a rosé that makes me dream when I write about it.

Join me and I will tell you everything you have to know to enjoy amazing days in one of the most glamorous beach resorts on earth.

Buddha-Bar Hotel Paris: A voyage within a voyage

Ahhh the Buddha-Bar Hotel Paris… This summer the hotel displays an air of Jungle chic, though with its usual Asian cultural slant: tropical plants and succulent in burnt wood containers, black rattan chairs, lanterns and so on. The feel is of perfect fusion, oriental touches and French tradition in total harmony.

I spent some days at this Parisian institution last week and will tell you in detail what to expect when booking a room at this amazing property! Join me!

Six Senses Laamu: The Maldives at its best

Six Senses Laamu is the only resort in the Laamu Atoll, deep in the Indian Ocean, in the stunning Maldives. Just a short inter-island flight from Malé International Airport and a quick boat trip take you to a place where dolphins swim, turtles are born, Mantas are easily spotted and where the sunsets are just magical. The luxury Maldives resort is a combination of on-land and over-water villas constructed of sustainable materials and set around the palm-fringed paradise. I spent a week in this secluded heaven and will tell you everything you have to know before packing and rushing to this paradise.
