Perfect destinations: from belgium to the carribean

1. Relaxing Spa: Hotel La Mamounia, Marrakech, Morocco

No one knows how to run a bath house better than the Moroccans. The iconic La Mamounia hotel has one of the most beautiful (and best) spas in the world (although we’ll happily recommend the one at the Beldi Country Club, too). mamounia.com, beldicountryclub.com

 

2. Bed and Breakfast: Bea, Knokke-Heist, Belgium

This eclectic guest accommodation is situated not far from the sea in a villa farm located in a green and tranquil area of chic Knokke-Le Zoute: a beautiful blend of art, vintage and iconic design pieces. bea-bb.com

 

3. Adventurous Road trip: Ojai, California, United States

Cruisin’ along the west cost of North America is and always has been one for the bucket list. Whatever you do, don’t miss Ojai, a sleepy, hippie-cool little town close to Los Angeles, best known as being the favourite refuge of John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Spend the night at the Ojai Rancho Inn: cool log cabin chic. ojairanchoinn.com

 

4.  Dream Island: St. Lucia, Caribbean

Bora Bora, Santorini, Ibiza, Jamaica, Bali, the Seychelles, Hawaii… So many choices! If we had to pick one at gunpoint: OK, so it’s St. Lucia in the Caribbean, a bounteous island where European dolce vita class is combined with American sky’s the limit luxury.

5. Enjoying in a Cocktail bar: Victoria Bar, Berlin, Germany

Potsdamer Strasse is one of the busiest streets in Berlin, with ambitious restaurants such as Golvet and Panama and the cult-ish concept store of Andreas Murkudis. One of the pioneers here is Victoria Bar, a casual favourite of Berlin’s art scene. victoriabar.de 

 

6. City discovery: New York, United States

No other city appeals quite as much to the imagination as New York. Which are the best districts to visit? Nolita, Williamsburg and the rugged Greenpoint. And what shouldn’t you miss? A cocktail on the green roof terrace at Gallow Green, or the roof terrace of Mr Purple, part of Hotel Indigo on the Lower East Side. Guzzle down oysters at Maison Premiere in Williamsburg, or aboard the good ship Grand Banks in the summertime. And be sure to take a stroll through the new Whitney Museum in the Meatpacking District. nycgo.com

 

7. Get tanned at Beach: Tulum, Mexico

Indisputably crammed with good taste and hippie-cool nonchalance everywhere you look. Beach life like nowhere else. tulum.com

 

8. Inspirational Museum: Fondazione Prada, Milan, Italy

A modern museum claimed by Prada. The café, Bar Lucce, designed by director Wes Anderson is at least as (awe-)inspiring. fondazioneprada.org

 

9. Classy Toilets: The Ned, London, England

The toilets at The Ned: simply, wow! All of the facilities are like ballrooms in size and feature a choice of the most delicious soaps, although this is not the only reason why this hotel is a new favourite in old London Town. thened.com

 

10. Glamping: El Cosmico, Marfa, Texas, United States

In the single traffic-light town of Marfa and surrounding area, there’s no option but to change down a gear. And this campsite is the perfect place to do just that: over eighteen hectares of land, with seven trailers, four teepees, eight safari tents and a great communal area – all in luxurious Nomadic style. elcosmico.com

11. City Escape: Amangiri, Utah, United States

Amangiri means ‘peaceful mountain’ – and peaceful it is. The hotel is located in an almost secret location: after a long drive through the looming rock formations, you’ll finally the hotel, emerging like a fata morgana in the form of a rectangular pavilion built out of polished concrete. aman.com/resorts/amangiri

 

12. Observe on Safari: Singita Resort, South Africa

Put all of the Singita Resorts on your bucket list: this family business has won a variety of prizes. Not just thanks to their stylish lodges, but also for the way they work with nature experts who look after the wild animals and they way the natural surroundings are so well cared for. So when you take the time to watch a passing elephant, you know that all is well. singita.com

13. Trendy Countryside: Soho Farmhouse, The Cotswolds, England

Every location in the British Soho House chain should be on your to-do list, but the farm-style one in the heart of the Cotswolds is our favourite. sohofarmhouse.com

 

14. Unbelievable Rooftop: Ozone, Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong, China

Hong Kong is a city like no other and is where you’ll find the highest rooftop bar in the world: on the 118th floor. Just try not to look down when you’re up there. ritzcarlton.com/en/hotels/china/hong-kong

 

15. Pop-up accommodation: Siempre Agosto, Ibiza, Spain

It remains the island in Europe that appeals most to the imagination: Ibiza. Finca Siempre Agosto may be a small place, but at the end of 2019 the place is closing down, so book now while you still can! airbnb.nl/rooms/22557375

16. Infinity-pool in the jungle: Hanging Gardens of Bali, Indonesia

The name of the hotel says it all… You’ll find the main swimming pool on top of a rock surrounded by rainforest. Every room in the hotel has its own mini-infinity pool with the same stunning views. hanginggardensofbali.com

17. In a Café with friends: Nol, Amsterdam, Netherlands

Dutch glory at its best in Amsterdam’s Jordaan district. A great watering hole for years for tourists and locals alike and there’s always a good-humoured barman on hand – come and check it out. cafenol-amsterdam.nl

 

18. Perfect Instagram Shot: La Muralla Roja, Calpe, Spain

Up to La Muralla Roja, or the Pink Wall. Anyone who sees photographs of this bonkers residential project by architect Ricardo Bofill, expects it to be at some inaccessible place somewhere in California or Mexico. But nothing could be further from the truth: this photogenic address is no further away than on Spain’s Costa Blanca. (no website)

19. Treehouse: Treehouse Hotel, Sweden

There’s the Birds Nest, the Ufo and the Cabin; but the most spectacular of them all is the Mirrorcube, a treehouse with a mirror-like exterior that makes it blend invisibly into the surroundings. And just the job for anyone concerned about the health of the local birdlife, because the cube is covered with a film that is invisible to us, but which very much deters birds from flying into the mirror wall. treehotel.se

 

20. Vegan: Tel Aviv, Israel

Don’t think the vegan lifestyle is just hype: everything plant-based is here to stay. Tel Aviv has been the most vegan-friendly city in the world for years and it’s virtually impossible to find a restaurant that doesn’t have vegetarian choices on the menu. Favourites? The vibrant Nanuchka, the cosy Cafe XoHo, the cool 416 and Market for cheap comfort food. And the list doesn’t stop there. nanuchka.co.ilcafexoho.com416.co.il
