There are thirty guest rooms. Each is spacious, luxurious and imaginative; rich and romantic with soft fabrics, polished wood, stone fireplaces, stacks of logs, a hand-built, cloud-soft bed and wilderness through its windows. After a day spent in the invigorating Adirondack air, it’s always a pleasure to return to a good meal, a comfortable chair and a crackling fire. The Lodge has two very different dining options – Artisans Restaurant and Maggie’s Pub.

New Arrival a TRUE 19th century palazzo

Palazzo Margherita is situated in Bernalda, a small hilltop town near the Ionian Sea in the Basilicata region of Southern Italy. The Palazzo has been completely restored by Francis Coppola who purchased it in 2004 with the desire to transform it into a small, luxurious hotel, believing it was time to introduce visitors to this stunning and still undiscovered region. The hotel has just nine rooms. There isn’t a restaurant but a huge table that seats 12 in the brick-vaulted kitchen, where two local women, Filomena and Enza, produce delicious meals of a kind you might be offered in someone’s home. One of the Palazzo's most magical features is its large private garden, fully enclosed and maintained with a focus on historic preservation. For guests,

the garden is a place to stroll and relax, and to enjoy meals and wine throughout the day and evening at the Pool Bar. Room rate starts from â‚Ź360 per night including breakfast and cooking lessons. Palazzo Margherita Bernalda, Italy

Winning UXUA abundant recognition, the ecological approach required over 2-years to complete. The design blends rustic elements with contemporary comfort and roominess, and fuses in an innovative way indoor and outdoor living spaces to take advantage of a year-round, tropical climate. UXUA Casa Hotel features ten unique casas, two restaurants specializing in traditional Bahian cuisine, a spa, a unique swimming pool of healing aventurine crystals, and a spectacular beach lounge created from old fishing boats.

Cuisine 1

Bahian cuisine, with its abundant African influence, is revered throughout Brazil as one of the country’s best. UXUA’s kitchens offer Bahian cooking with a very local emphasis, and presented with the same joy and pride which food is served in any local home. Ingredients include produce from UXUA’s own garden and other organic farms of Trancoso, as well as the freshest fish caught using traditional techniques. Cooking in Bahia is a social event, and the hotel’s main kitchen is an open structure featuring a counter with bar-stools where guests are welcome to sit and chat with the chefs, watch and learn, or just sample what’s cooking.
