welcome to Be Inspired Welcome to Issue 4 of Be Inspired, our biannual taster of the vast banquet of distinctive experiences laid out by Small Luxury Hotels of the World™. Taken from some 520 hotels in around 70 countries, the highlights of the 100 or so hotels featured here are only the icing on the cake. Especially as the number and variety of the experiences on offer is growing all the time. Our newest member hotels come from both SLH’s core destinations such as Italy, France, the USA and the Caribbean, and exciting new markets including the Philippines, Bali and China. What it all amounts to is an exceptional level of choice for members. The overall experience is equally exceptional. Because SLH hotels are small and independent, they have their own personality and a warmth of service that is harder to find in larger properties – plus, the owners are often on site to give their idiosyncratic take on the local culture. So whether you’re looking for a perfect honeymoon experience, knockout family villa, shopping trip to die for or an unforgettable Italian feast, SLH is the place to start. From our new best views roundup to our spotlight on beautiful gardens and destination focus on Sri Lanka, we hope the features inspire you to try something new. It’s easy to book, whether through slh. com, our free iPhone or iPad app, Facebook, or your favourite travel agent – and you can save money by opting for a pre-paid stay. If you’re a Club member, we look forward to treating you to fabulous room upgrades and other benefits, such as our private monthly pre-paid flash sales; and our dedicated call centres would be delighted to put together a personalised itinerary for you. If you’re yet to join, have a look at It couldn’t be easier. And it’s free. It’s all there in the name. Small Luxury Hotels of the World™. Small hotels. Big experiences.

WINDOWS ON Many SLH hotels come with phenomenal views of some of the planet’s most memorable sights, whether natural or manmade. In most cases, you don’t even have to move from your room to see them.




You could spend all day gazing across the infinity pool to the Aegean Sea and sky from clifftop Cosmopolitan Suites on Santorini, just watching the odd cloud, bird or yacht and the silver shimmer of the water turn to gold. Each of the 10 suites has a view of the caldera; the vibrant capital, Fira, is steps away.

The 8km2 Sun Moon Lake – named by the aboriginal Thao tribe and surrounded by the Shueisheda and Maolanshan mountains – can be seen from the pier, restaurant, bar and most of the rooms at The Crystal Resort Sun Moon Lake in Yuchih, central Taiwan. Inside, the liberal use of crystal, glass and mirrors reflects the light sparkling on the water; outside, take a boat cruise or walk the lakeside trails.

Sacred to the Hindus, the Ganges flows 2,500km from the Himalayas to the Bay of Bengal, taking in the sleepy hamlet of Raichak, a 90-minute drive from Kolkata, as it goes. Watch the passing boats from tranquil Ganga Kutir, which has an infinity pool, a bar and spa, and Premium rooms with Jacuzzi baths right on the banks of the River Ganges.

The Dylan Amsterdam has much else to recommend it – immaculate, glamorous rooms, a charming courtyard garden, a Michelin-starred restaurant – but its location on Keizersgracht, one of the city’s main canals, is one of its high points. Grab a hotel bike to explore the Negen Straatjes shopping district, or take a private boat tour.

The 5th-century BC Temple of Concordia is the best preserved of the seven structures that make up the Unesco World Heritage-listed Valley of the Temples in Agrigento, Sicily – and a truly magnificent site with its 6x13 Doric columns. You can see it from many of the rooms at the handsome Hotel Villa Athena, as well as from the outoor pool, landscaped gardens and outdoor restaurant; guests also have the option of rising early and exploring the ruins ahead of the crowds.

High on a hilltop in Montalcino, Tuscany, 30 minutes outside Siena, Castello di Velona is a restored 11th-century fortress with breathtaking views over the hills and vineyards of the Val d’Orcia. Enjoy them from your room (antique or contemporary), the panoramic terraces of the restaurant, or the hydromassage pool of the fabulous spa.

Rancho Pacifico in Uvita de Osa doesn’t just overlook the extraordinary Whale’s Tale formation on Costa Rica’s southern Pacific coast, it is also surrounded by pristine rainforest-clad mountains. Fittingly, guests can whale watch here – humpback whales congregate on what is known as the Costa Ballena from December to March and mid-July to October. Alternatively, follow a private trail up into the cloud forest for more staggering ocean and jungle views, looking out for blue morpho butterflies, three types of monkeys, sloths and jaguarundis.

With features such as outdoor balconies and soaking tubs, the casitas at Sanctuary Camelback Mountain Resort & Spa outside Scottsdale in Arizona, USA, are designed to maximise the phenomenal views of the mountain, Paradise Valley and red Sonoran Desert. There are more stunning vistas from the restaurant, bar, pools, championship tennis courts and destination spa, with its meditation garden, yoga and Pilates studios and indoor-outdoor treatment rooms. Round off the day with the balloon flight of your life.

The charm is palpable, the current buzz compelling: there can rarely have been a better time to visit Sri Lanka. Since the island’s 25-year civil war ended in 2009, Sri Lanka’s fortunes have been ever soaring. For travellers it’s a halcyon package of golden beaches, temples and tea estates, intriguing remnants of fabulously ancient kingdoms and jungle where wild elephant and leopard roam. What’s more, for the moment at least, it is very affordable and much of it remains wonderfully uncrowded. Just a little smaller than Ireland, the island is traditionally described as a teardrop or pearl off the southern tip of India. Of course the gem image is the most apposite in the bright new world of Sri Lanka today. The island is ringed by glorious sandy shores: step off the plane and you can head straight to the beach. The golden coast of Negombo is just north of the international airport, while Wadduwa is a short drive south. Part of the joy of travel here is that distances are not great. So from these western shores you can happily twist south to the Dutch colonial fort-city of Galle, lined with atmospheric, time-worn buildings.

For glorious Sri Lankan culture make for the interior and the historic heartland of the ‘Cultural Triangle’, which contains a mind-numbing array of ancient sites with impossible-looking names. Highlights include Anuradhapura and Polonnaruwa, respectively capitals from the 3rd century BC and the 11th century AD, and Sigiriya, a 1,500-year-old citadel built into a stupendous rock, its caverns adorned with frescoes of big-breasted women. To the east are areas reopened to visitors. Some of the island’s best surfing and whale watching is offered from the long beaches near this region’s harbour city of Trincomalee. There’s also a growing choice of outstanding accommodation. A number of sublimely stylish hotels have been brilliantly refurbished; particularly striking are those originally designed by Geoffrey Bawa, Sri Lanka’s renowned architect who died in 2003. There’s a great sense of innovation too, with several newly built hotels sensitively devised as luxury eco-retreats.

Cultural Triangle and east coast


Jetwing Beach, Negombo Spilling on to golden sands, this gracious, open-sided hotel was designed by Geoffrey Bawa in 1987. Now elegantly revamped, it has two pools, a spa and 78 bedrooms with private terraces. 20 minutes from Colombo airport.

Jetwing Vil Uyana, Sigiriya This remarkable eco-resort is hidden in jungle close to the Sigiriya rock fortress. Opened in 2006 on previously abandoned land, it has 25 stylish thatched cabanas in four specially created habitats: water, forest, paddy and marsh. 15km from the town of Dambulla.

Jetwing Lighthouse, Dadella Dutch-colonial style blends with modern design at this striking resort devised in the 1990s by Geoffrey Bawa. The coastal setting is superb: the 63 rooms have balconies or terraces with a beach and sea outlook. 2km from Galle.

Jetwing Lagoon, Thalahena Overlooking tranquil Negombo Lagoon, this 55-room resort was designed by Geoffrey Bawa and deftly restored in 2011. Its décor is a sophisticated mix of caramels and creams and it has a fabulously long pool. 16km from Colombo airport. Serene Pavilions, Wadduwa A very private boutique retreat built in 2009 and set in a beachside coconut grove. The 12 Balinese-style pavilions come with a private pool and personal butler, and guests share a stunning main pool with four sunken Jacuzzi beds. 63km from Colombo airport. Shinagawa Beach, Balapitiya This 26-room hotel is located along a cobalt beach, where guests can relax and be lulled by the gentle lapping of waves. Offering comfortable, stylish accommodation, the hotel grounds are an extension of the region's natural beauty; a celebration of solitude, sun and dazzling waters.

Ulagalla Resort, Anuradhapura The 150-year-old home of a local noble was re-devised as this spectacular eco-retreat in 2010. The wonderful central property has 20 opulent yet ecologically sound chalets in 58 bird-filled acres. 20km from Anuradhapura.

The Fortress, Koggala A contemporary-chic haven overlooking Koggala beach and set in an exquisite walled garden. Styled after Galle’s Dutch fort and built in 2005, it has 49 spacious rooms, an Ayurveda spa and a gorgeous central pool. 10km from Galle. Tamarind Hill, Galle A resplendent manor house carefully preserved to reflect its true origins, this emanates the striking architecture of the 1800s, infusing timeless antique pieces in a modern, elegant setting. It has just 13 beautifully decorated rooms, two restaurants and a swimming pool. 2km from Galle.

Jungle Beach, Trincomalee A sumptuous eco-haven completed in 2012 and set in a 10-acre estate between the Indian Ocean and a wildlife-rich lagoon. The 48 ultra-modern cabins are surrounded by lush foliage. Near Kuchchaveli village 33km from Trincomalee.

WATER THERAPY As a medical ‘cure’ or an antidote to stress, WATER IS A GREAT HEALER. So dive in. San Montano Resort & Spa Ischia

Grand Hotel at Waldaus Films Mountain Resort & Spa

Lefay Resort & Spa Lago di Garda

From the bathhouses of the Greeks and the Romans to the vitality pools of today, water is at the heart of the spa experience. We might still use the ancient terms; balneotherapy (the use of mineral-rich waters to treat illness), hydrotherapy (the application of water to soothe and stimulate) and thalassotherapy (where the focus is on the health benefits of seawater, seaweed and marine muds). But water in spas is as in vogue as it ever was. The San Montano Resort & Spa Ischia, Italy, offers every type of water therapy imaginable, including treatments that harness the healing properties of the island’s 100 thermal springs. High on the rocks with panoramic views of the sea and Mount Vesuvius, the spa is set around fumaroles used in the treatment of aches and pains since the 16th century. The new H2O Wellness Panorama includes seven pools and a natural grotto, all in a garden scented with lemon trees, jasmine and lavender – and all overlooking the sea, which is only a shuttle ride away. The restaurant offers tailored menus for those on a detox and treatments range from reflexology to mud therapy; after lying in 10cm of 47°C volcanic mud for 20 minutes, you’ll look and feel brand new. Further north at Lefay Resort & Spa Lago di Garda in Gargano, the views – from the terrace of every suite – are of Lake Garda, while the 3,000m2 destination spa has an array of pools, including indoor and outdoor saltwater pools, a 25m swimming pool and an indoor saltwater lake. Family-run with a strong commitment to sustainability, the resort has developed a spa method that combines the principles of Classical Chinese Medicine with Western scientific research, and offers a huge range of treatments from algotherapy and thalassotherapy 18

to acupuncture and reflexology. The wellbeing focus extends to tracks and fitness areas in 11 hectares of terraced parkland, woods and olive groves, as well as to delicious Mediterranean cuisine, served in a scented lemon grove or among the vines. If you’ve ever wanted to sit in a massage pool, gazing at the mountains as the snow falls around you, head to the Grand Hotel at Waldhaus Flims Mountain Resort & Spa in Switzerland. This 19th-century grande dame sits among trees in the magnificent alpine region of Flims-Laax and offers winter skiing, summer hiking and a striking modern spa fed by spring water from Flims. Relax in the interconnected indoor and outdoor massage pools, have an outdoor earth sauna followed by a dip in an ice hole, and try a signature ritual incorporating a mud pack. Or book one of the resort’s new 250m2 Private Spas, each with their own heated outdoor pool with swan-neck massage jet, Jacuzzi bed, cold plunge pool and yoga garden. Then refuel on the healthy regional food in one of the five restaurants; detox weeks with specially tailored menus and treatments are also available.

Hot springs are abundant in Taiwan’s Yilan hills – rich in sodium bicarbonate, they are famous for treating skin problems and gastric complaints. All-suite spa sanctuary Hotel Royal Chiao Hsi is set around four of them, in an architecturally stunning indooroutdoor complex complete with children’s waterfall pool and an aromatic spring house scented with lavender, rose, lemongrass, rosemary, basil, chamomile, eucalyptus and cinnamon for private bathing. There’s also a stunning infinity pool overlooking the Lanyang Plains and a range of treatments including Taiwanese acupressure massages, stone therapy, Ayurveda facials, body polishes and wraps. Everything is soothing here, from the minimalist Japanese rooms with their views of the hills to the softly lit gardens with their herbal pools and wooden walkways. Hike to the Wufongqi Falls, then return for dinner in the View Western Restaurant with its floor-toceiling vistas.

Elemental stuff A new sister to The Emperor Beijing, The Emperor Qianmen is on Beijing’s pedestrianised Qianmen Street, a short walk from the Palace Museum and National Centre for the Performing Arts. Now known for the Chinese brands that have set up shop here in an attempt to recreate the vibrant atmosphere of the Ming and Qing Dynasty days, the area once housed a famous Beijing bathhouse, Xinghuayuan, a detail referenced in the hotel’s interiors, which blend traditional Chinese culture with modern Western design and a distinctive water theme. On entering, guests encounter a rain alley and waterfall trickling down blue stone tiles, and there are two other cascades in the hotel, one falling over plants, the third – eight metres deep – connecting the patio and massage pool in the spa area. The spa is operated by French brand L’Occitaine and also has an infinity pool.

DYNAMICS Travelling with a tribe can be as easy as 1, 2, 3. Choose an inspiring location, select a spacious suite and let your hotel entertain you. BY STEPHANIE PLENTL.

The winter wonderland of Narnia may not be real, but some ski resorts do a very good impression. Two properties in the Swiss Alpine village of Waldhaus Flims can’t fail to enchant: The Grand Hotel and Villa Silvana are based at Waldhaus Flims Mountain Resort & Spa – only an hour’s drive from Zurich – and offer a dedicated kids club for snowman building and forest escapades, as well as pizza baking and a cool cyber room. With three summerhouse-style bedrooms, a kitchen and a dining area, the Clerezza Suite is equally good for a gang of friends wanting to ski the area’s magnificent 17km run. To ski or spa? It’s a tough decision at Rosapetra Spa Resort in Italy’s dramatic Dolomites region. A recent member of SLH, its serene temple of saunas, showers and baths (Roman and Turkish) is complemented by a spectrum of massages and treatments, including teenage spa treats such as a Miofasciale Massage for stretching out growing muscles. Three suites accommodate families of four, and the cocooning stone and wood décor is ideal for warming up in after a torchlight walk.

For fun in the sun, the Thalatta Seaside Hotel’s kids club and concierge have come up with a variety of entertainments for busy-bee guests. Set on the idyllic island of Evia in Greece, the hotel offers beach games and treasure hunts galore, plus arts and crafts in the pine forest playground and cosy cartoon movie nights. Your home from home is a spacious maisonette of three bedrooms with its own pool and deck, while family adventures might include a picnic at the Drymonas Waterfall. Water babies (big or small) will go crazy for the island of Crete, in particular the familyowned Elounda Gulf Villas & Suites, perched majestically on a cliff over the Aegean Sea. Each elegant spa pool villa has panoramic views and a private infinity pool – with Jacuzzi and jet stream for swimming against – plus bedrooms accommodating up to eight guests. Essentially, these are exclusive holiday villas with five-star hotel services on tap: scuba diving, wind surfing, water skiing, sailing excursions and sunset cruises are all available. Thalassa Boutique Hotel & Spa is beautifully located on a peninsula near Paphos in Cyprus, with sea views on three sides and a kilometer’s stretch of golden beach. While most guests get to choose between a sunrise or sunset Mediterranean aspect from their bedrooms, the Gaia Presidential Suite has both, with room for two couples or a family of four (though children must be over 12 years of age). The food spans Cypriot, sushi, seafood and summer BBQs – something for every discerning palate.

Exclusive use For perfect seclusion on your group trip, why not choose a private property? You may not know this but SLH have several properties available for exclusive use all over the world including ski chalets and remote island villas. Call our voice centre for more details on how to book. In a remote part of Koh Samui in Thailand for example, Akatsuki Samui quietly pampers up to 15 guests with a specially assigned personal chef, butler and driver. A cluster of Thai and Japanese inspired luxury suites and lounging pavilions are centred around its three-tiered infinity pool leading to a pristine beach. The infinity pool at Ketapang Estate in Bali (a new SLH member) is Olympic-sized with epic views of the Indian Ocean. This exclusive-use resort – encircled by padi fields, lush gardens and lily ponds – has seven double Javanese-style villas and an outdoor screen for cinema under the stars.

PUSH THE BOAT OUT Tempting as it is to relax by the pool, several hotels are perfectly positioned for a nautical jaunt by lake or sea. All aboard, says Stephanie Plentl. The name says it all at Fragrant Nature Hotel & Resort Kollam, poised on serene Lake Mala in Kerala. Every room has a lake view and you can cruise, punt, speed and pedal-boat your way through its waters – or even try fishing them. The sunset backwater cruise from Kollam (known for its cashew nuts) to Alappuzha is sublime. Follow with dinner, an Ayurvedic spa treatment or a cultural show in the resort’s amphitheatre. Things are somewhat faster-paced at the Grand Hotel Majestic on Lake Maggiore in Italy, where, guests can set off from the private beach or jetty to canoe alongside Olympic gold medallist Benjamino Bonomi. Alternatively, a sedate sailboat trip to San Giovanni Island – where acclaimed conductor Toscanini spent many summers – offers a glorious perspective on the recently renovated Belle Epoque hotel, with its balcony-tiered façade, English gardens and stunning mountain backdrop. Greece is littered with archaeological and mythical marvels including the island of Delos, which guests at the Ostraco Suites in Mykonos can visit by rib or sailboat (with a gourmet picnic or lunch). Conveniently, Delos is next to another gem of

an island, Rhenia, a magical place for private bathing. Then it’s a languid sail back to the pure-white environs of the hotel for a sundowner in ethereal splendour. Hard as it is to be parted from the tropical idyll of Petit St Vincent – a 22-cottage Caribbean resort on its own private island – a classic sloop is on offer to explore the area by private or shared charter. Jeff, the skipper, might steer you toward Tobago Cays (five small desert islands) where the reef is rich in marine life and waiting to be snorkelled. Or take to the helm yourself, then lunch on lobster and rum. A 16th-century former Jesuit monastery, Grand Hotel Cocumella near Sorrento in Italy offers antiques in abundance, both in its bedrooms and anchored in the Bay of Naples. Cocumella’s own tall ship, ‘Vera’, was built in 1880 and cruises guests along the Amalfi Coast and to Capri. Back on land, this magnificent hotel has manicured, flower-filled gardens and grand views of Vesuvius.

PL AY TIME Which is the fairest fairway of them all? Brush up on your game of golf at any one of these sublime properties, says Stephanie Plentl. ■ Nestled in the midst of Provençal forest lies Royal Mougins Hotel, Golf & Spa – an all-suite property with an outstanding 18-hole golf course, spa, and gourmet restaurant with pretty terrace overlooking the beautifully landscaped greens. The exclusive Golf Club was designed by the late Robert von Hagge; a par 71, the 18-hole course extends for 6,004 m through a lush, wooded vale. ■ One of the best golf courses in Europe, 6,390m, par-71 Valderrama hosted the 1997 Ryder Cup, Tiger Woods’ first. Club Marítimo de Sotogrande on the south coast of Spain is a delightful boutique hotel within easy reach of those renowned fairways (and some fine beaches, too). ■ A grand Italianate pink palace, the Villa Padierna Palace Hotel near Marbella was designed to turn heads, as were its three 18-hole golf courses: one, the 5,714m, par-71 Flamingos, was laid out by Antonio Garcia Garrido. Each individually designed hotel room looks over fairways, a lake or the Mediterranean. ■ In the UK, Peter Alliss and Clive Clarke were behind the magnificent course in the idyllic country setting of 14th-century The Manor House Hotel and Golf Club


in Castle Combe. Built in 1992, the challenging 6,500-yard, par-72 course has stately oak and beech trees lining its fairways, leading to a beautifully picturesque finish.

■ Nestled among tall pines with views of Squam Lake, The Manor on Golden Pond in New Hampshire, USA, is made for romance. Nearby, two 18-hole golf courses with panoramas of the White Mountains beckon: Owl’s Nest (6,818 yards, par 72) and Canterbury Woods (6,650 yards, par 72). ■ A charming, converted old farmstead in The Netherlands, the WinselerHof Country Estate successfully bridges the gap between authenticity and modern comfort. Even better, it boasts three local golf courses: Hoenshuis, Brunssummerheide and Henri Chappelle. All offer 18 holes of glorious par-72 golf, so take your pick. ■ Quintessentially Provençal in character, Domaine de Manville in France is another beautifully restored farmhouse – and a highly anticipated new opening for SLH. The pine-covered valley is the ideal terrain for its eco-responsible 18-hole golf course, which has dry-stone walls as bunkers and olive trees as obstacles.

Villa Padierna Palace Hotel, Spain

A SPORTING LIFE Having scored his Olympic, US Open and Wimbledon hat trick, Andy Murray seized another spectacular opportunity in February 2013 by acquiring Cromlix and Chez Roux. A Victorian mansion close to the tennis champion’s home town of Dunblane in Scotland, this new SLH member will have 15 rooms and a superb French restaurant overseen by renowned chef Albert Roux.

The 34-acre estate, meanwhile, will offer clay pigeon shooting, archery, fishing, quad biking and tennis, while the world-famous trio of Gleneagles championship golf courses are a tantalisingly short drive away. The PGA Centenary course (designed by Jack Nicklaus) is the host venue for the 2014 Ryder Cup. It will be the first time Europe and America have competed in Scotland – the home of golf – for more than 40 years.

THE GALLIVANTIN GOURMET The bounty of Italian cuisine and French wine should be savoured one region at a time, allowing each dish and drop to tell the tale of a specific history and culture. By Stephanie Plentl.

Hotel Byron, Tuscany

Palazzo Righini, Fossano

Villa Mangiacane, Tuscany

Relais Histó San Pietro sul Mar Piccolo, Taranto


Albergo Al Sole, Asolo

ESSENTIAL INGREDIENTS – ITALY Piedmont in northern Italy is a famous foodie region, known for its truffles, fine Barolo wine and vitello tonnato (cold sliced veal covered in creamy, tunaflavoured sauce). At Palazzo Righini in the old quarter of Fossano, chef Flavio Ghigo delves into the detail of the region’s traditional cuisine. Try his award-winning Risotto mantecato al Fondo Bruno in the hotel’s vaulted restaurant or pick up tricks, tips and techniques in Ghigo's cooking workshop. Veneto may also be in the north but the region’s dishes are utterly distinct from its neighbour's. In the medieval village of Asolo, sisters Elena and Silvia De Checchi focus on local recipes in their demonstrations at the Albergo Al Sole, housed in a 16th-century villa. A typical cooking class might produce plates of eggplant parmigiana or polenta and finish with a deliciously decadent tiramisu – with all the recipes collated in a handy book for guests to reference at home. Tuscany has it all: olive groves, premier vineyards, an undulating emerald landscape, and the handsome Villa Mangiacane. Guests can eat in the herb and rose garden in summer, taste estate wine and olive oil and absorb Tuscan culture through cooking classes and restaurant dishes: think spaghettoni with tomatoes and basil plucked from the garden or a Bistecca alla Fiorentina T-bone steak. On the Tuscan coast, every room at Hotel Byron has stunning views of the Tyrrhenian Sea or Apuan Alps and the restaurant, La Magnolia, comes with a Michelin star. Chef Andrea Mattei is only too happy to reveal the

secrets of his locally inspired dishes such as Lamb di Zeri or Shrimps agnoletti. After feasting on the fruits of your labour, borrow a hotel bike and explore the pretty avenues of Forte dei Marmi. In contrast to Tuscany, understated Umbria has an untamed beauty. Perched on a hilltop in the historic centre of Perugia, Hotel Brufani Palace – new to SLH and the only five-star hotel in the region – has plenty of old-world charm. Its restaurant, The Collins, showcases famously rustic Umbrian flavours in dishes such as suckling pig glazed with figs. Enjoy a post-dinner digestif in the cosy bar or sit outside on the charming piazza, gazing at the city below. Seafood, creamy mozzarella and orecchiette pasta characterise the cooking of Puglia – the region in Italy’s ‘heel’. The impressive limestone edifice of Borgobianco Resort & Spa has views across the pool to the Adriatic Sea and the hotel restaurant prides itself on using ingredients that have travelled ‘0km’: it makes its own dairy products and olive oil, and Modesto, the farmer, selects the day’s best fruit and vegetables for the table and cooking school. Close to the coastal town of Taranto. Relais Histó San Pietro sul Mar Piccolo is a converted country manor house set among 70 acres of olive trees. The restaurant, La Lanternaia, is housed in an ancient frantoio or olive mill. Cooking classes focus on the regional highlights of the restaurant menu, such as orecchiette pasta with turnip tops and anchovy crumbs or sea bass with buffalo mozzarella and sun dried tomato. Bellissimo!

TALES OF THE TERROIR – FRANCE For white wine enthusiasts, the Loire Valley offers an impressive roll call of historic wine-producing villages – Sancerre, Vouvray and Pouilly Fumé among them – and plenty of stunning properties to taste the wines in. One incentive to stay at Château d’Artigny (south of Tours) is its magnificent cellar of 20,000 bottles. The splendid 18th -century castle (built by decadent French perfumer François Coty) is now a hotel brimming with attributes: sumptuous interiors, a new spa and Origan – its impeccable French restaurant.

To the east in Burgundy, red wine buffs are spoilt for choice and Château de Gilly can help to focus your palate on the very finest. Situated in the Grand Cru region, this former medieval residence of Cistercian monks has a rib-vaulted cellar, now the restaurant, linked to the hotel by a tunnel. Though tastings are not offered at the château itself, the hotel can organise a tour of a prestigious Côte de Nuits winery and a taste of its Grand Cru Pinot Noir, followed by a tutored hunt for Burgundy truffles with Elfe the dog and her owner.

For tastings in a private troglodytic cellar, wine connoisseurs should venture to Domaine de Beauvois overlooking Briffaut Lake – the cellar is hewn out of rock and some vintages are more than 100 years old. The manor itself has interiors decorated in 16th- and 17th-century style and is set in 350 acres of glorious parkland, which can be viewed in its entirety from a hot air balloon.

Further south among the rolling hills of romantic Beaujolais, Château de Bagnols is a honey-coloured 13th-century castle with a spectacular moat and drawbridge. Featuring 22 spacious apartments and an abundance of historic objets d’art, this new SLH member is perfectly positioned for exploring the area where the elite Gamay grape wines are produced. The hotel can facilitate a tour to the glorious Château La Chaize in the Brouilly appellation, where you can taste wines in a 108m cellar – the longest in Beaujolais.

The Loire Valley is also studded with medieval gems. Le Prieuré is a former 12th-century Benedictine priory that evolved over time to become a stately lodge and collection of parkland residences. Situated on the banks of the River Loire in Saumur it, too, boasts a troglodyte cellar, where a sommelier introduces guests to three notable local wines in a 40-minute tasting session. Beyond wines, the locale is famous for its river fish, mushrooms from the nearby Tufa caves and ‘Fouée’, a round puffy bread filled with paté, black pudding or cheese.

In the middle of Château Smith Haut Lafitte vineyards near Bordeaux, sits Les Sources de Caudalie, the perfect wine country escape boasting over 15,000 wine bottles in its cellar. Nestled among its own historic vineyards and lake-gardens, much here is dedicated to the “terroir” where you will also find two restaurants, a superb spa offering grape-based therapies, a cooking school and wine tasting courses.

To book visit

ART & SOUL A hotel art collection can be a feast for the eyes as well as endless food for thought. Jane Anderson flags up four SLH hotels that double as galleries. Guests at Albergo Pietrasanta in Tuscany, Italy, are in for a surprise: the hotel might be housed in the converted villa and stables of a 17th-century palace, but the interiors boast a superb collection of modern art. All 19 rooms and nine suites have art on the walls, from the abstract paintings of Carla Accardi to artifacts by conceptual artist Alighiero Boetti, who used worthless materials to challenge the commercialism of Pop Art. The town itself is known as the ‘little Athens’ of the Versilia region thanks to the large numbers of artists who have put down roots there. Visitors can meander through the medieval square and find the spirit of Michelangelo alive and well in the workshops and galleries of local artisans, many of them working in marble and bronze.

Petra Hotel & Suites, Patmos

Art runs through the DNA of Petra Hotel & Suites on the Greek island of Patmos, where Saint John is believed to have written the Apocalypse. Even the room keys were created by Greek sculptor Kyriakos Rokos. Guests can admire the work of Rokos and his wife, the painter and engraver Roubina Sarelakou, in the Petra Suite, as well as paintings by their son, Stefanos Rokos, in one of the Honeymoon Suites. Outside the hotel, head to the Monastery of Saint John in the village of Chora, a Unesco World Heritage site, to see the iconographies and an El Greco original, and ask your hotel what else is on: recent shows included an exhibition by photographer Robert McCabe.

Byblos Art Hotel Villa, Corrubbio di Negarine, Amista

In Corrubbio di Negarine, Italy, Byblos Art Hotel Villa Amistà holds a treasure trove of art by world-renowned artists. Housed in a classic Venetian styled villa dating back to the 15th century and set in a five-acre park with a formal Italian garden, this unique property with its palatial and colourful interiors, gastronomic restaurant and a spa is just a few minutes from Verona. Each one of the 60 rooms is individually decorated and masterfully styled with the use of vividly bright coloured fabrics and furnishings as well as original paintings. Astounding pieces of contemporary art in dizzying colours are found throughout the hotel and include works by Marc Quinn, Damien Hirst, Anish Kapoor and Sol LeWitt. Across the world in South Island, New Zealand, meanwhile, The George in Christchurch boasts an impressive collection of national art throughout its public areas and rooms, curated by Stephen Gleeson, who is also an accomplished sculptor. Taking in work by artists such as Ralph Hotere and J.S. Parker, the collection offers an insight into the blend of cultures, politics and events that have helped to shape the country. The art galleries of central Christchurch are within walking distance.

ith artists and designers of genius such as Capability Brown and Vita Sackville-West behind them, the gardens of England are famous all over the world. And they’re not exclusive to the milder climes of the south. At The Raithwaite Estate, a redeveloped 19th-century estate on the North Yorkshire coast, guests can picnic among an eclectic mix of seasonal and evergreen trees and shrubs, or go on a foraging mission through the 100 acres of park and woodland. Frogs, newts and toads abound in a waterfall-fed lake and stream that runs through the estate, while Castle Howard, which stood in for Brideshead in the popular 1980s TV series Brideshead Revisited, is nearby. Tylney Hall is another Victorian wonder, this time in the southern English county of Hampshire, with huge windows overlooking avenues lined with chestnuts, limes and giant sequoias. The 66 acres of gardens, parkland and woodland take in everything from a formal Italian Garden laid out in 1900 by Seldon Wornum to Water Gardens by Gertrude Jekyll and greenhouses designed by Robert Weir Schultz in the early 20th-century Arts and Crafts style. Join the garden team for a tour, or compare and contrast with a host of other gorgeous gardens, including West Green House and The Vyne, nearby.

Across the English Channel, 18th-century Château La Chenevière, near the D-Day Landing Beaches in Normandy, has a distinctly English feel. Most rooms have a view over the two hectares of gardens and parkland, which include some 40 superb trees, from a Copper Tree and a Cedar of Lebanon to a Ginkgo Biloba. Croquet is a popular pastime here; visit the gardens of Claude Monet in Giverny on your way out. Heading south to the Loire Valley, Le Choiseul is a collection of 16th- and 18th-century residences in terraced Italianate gardens, tucked between the cliffs and river at the foot of Amboise Castle. Admire the original Italian sculptures and explore the mysterious ‘Greniers de César’, a troglodyte site in the cliffs. The International Garden Festival at the Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire (April to October) is also on your doorstep. Few things are more evocative of summer than the scents of Provence. Auberge de Cassagne & Spa is a classic country house outside Avignon, with interiors dressed in pastel-hued floral prints and a garden terrace surrounded by climbing vines and sundappled stone. Savour the creative regional cuisine of outstanding chef Philippe Boucher while breathing in the aromas of lavender, rosemary and thyme.

A short hop south in the Roman city of Arles, Hôtel Jules César is a 17th-century former stone convent with cloistered galleries and tranquil views over the lavender gardens, which surround an outdoor heated swimming pool. Visit Les Alyscamps, the poplar-lined Roman cemetery famously painted by Van Gogh and Gauguin, then drive to the Camargue wetlands, a magical water world of grasses, rushes and sea lavender, wild bulls, white horses and flamingos. There are more vestiges of Roman civilisation at Hotel Villa Carlotta in Taormina, Sicily: the cocktail bar is housed in Roman catacombs. Built in 1860 for a local aristocratic family, the hotel also has a roof garden, Il Miraggio, with magnificent views of the sea and Mount Etna. The enchanting Mediterranean gardens are planted with rare palms, orange and lemon trees, and only 200 metres from Taormina’s renowned Public Gardens.

Tylney Hall, UK

Wuyun Mountain, Jiuxi Misty Forest, the Yunxi Bamboo Lined Road, West Lake – the landscapes around Hangzhou Rose Garden Resort and Spa in eastern China’s Zhejiang Province sound like locations for a Zhang Yimou film. Hangzhou is a major city on the Yangtze River Delta known for its scenic beauty, historic temples, and green tea; and the hotel is in keeping, with vast gardens to cocoon the relatively modest number of rooms from the outside world. The interiors are by high-profile hospitality design specialists Hirsch Bedner Associates; outside, highlights include a 50m outdoor swimming pool, a pond, a VIP arbour for tea meetings and meditation, and 50 peacocks on the lawns.

DESIGN Hotel de Orangerie, Bruges

15th century From the 12th to the 15th century, the Belgian city of Bruges was one of the most prosperous trading centres in the world, with thriving markets in cloth, wool, grain, wine and spices. When the Zwin channel, which linked Bruges to the North Sea, silted over, however, the city’s fortunes declined – until the 20th century, when its medieval heritage put the ‘Venice of the North’ on the map as a tourist destination. Visit the 13th-century Belfry and outstanding Groeninge Museum from Hotel de Orangerie: the former 15thcentury convent is right on the Den Dyver Canal, and the rooms come with the original wood panelling and ancient fireplaces, old paintings and antiques.

17th century Milan isn’t perhaps as readily associated with historic architecture and art as Venice, Florence or Rome, but the economic and design capital of Italy has a wealth of ancient treasures, from the monumental Cathedral, whose architecture spans an impressive six centuries, to the Pinacoteca di Brera, which celebrates art from much the same period. Get a feel for old Milan at the Petit Palais Hotel de Charme, a boutique hotel housed in a 17th-century convent-turned-private residence grandly furnished with parquet floors, beautiful tapestries, period furniture and gilt-framed paintings.

Petit Palais Hotel de Charme, Milan

SLH THROUGH THE AGES 18th century Nowhere did the 18th century better than France, and the philosophes and salons of the Age of Enlightenment. The majestic Château d’Artigny in the Loire was built in the early 20th century but the interiors are a tribute to the 18th, with sweeping staircases, trompe l’oeil frescoes, opulent salons and vast windows overlooking the River Indre. Origan restaurant boasts wood panelling, gold-leaf reliefs and fluted columns with Corinthian capitals, while the vaulted cellars harbour a superb new spa and an extensive wine collection. For 18thcentury architecture, head to Château La Chenevière, a gracious manor house in Port-en-Bessin, Normandy; period details such as half-tester beds and marble fireplaces enhance the warm, modern ambience. Casas del XVI, Dominican Republic

16th century When Christopher Columbus first sailed across the Atlantic in 1492, one of his first ports of call was the Caribbean island of Hispaniola; Santo Domingo, now the capital of the Dominican Republic, lays claim to the first cathedral, hospital, customs house and university in the New World. The three 16th-century houses that make up the newly opened Casas del XVI include Casa de los Mapas, adorned with vintage maps from the colony’s early days, and Casa de los Barcos, originally owned by one Pilot Alonso Perez Roldan, who travelled with Columbus; depictions of galleons from the voyages were discovered beneath the plaster and paint during the conservation process.

Château d’Artigny, Loire

19th century – palatial The Grand Hotel in Eastbourne, UK, dates from 1875, when the upper classes decamped to the seaside for months at a time, sometimes taking their entire retinues with them. Recently renovated and now boasting an exclusive spa, ‘The White Palace’ has an impressive 400-foot frontage overlooking the Channel and cliffs of Beachy Head. Guests have been equally grand, including Winston Churchill, Charlie Chaplin and Claude Debussy, who completed ‘La Mer’ symphony in Suite 200 in 1905.

The Leopold Hotel, Sheffield

19th century – educational The Leopold Hotel overlooking Sheffield’s fashionable Leopold Square is another legacy of Victorian England. Built as a boys’ grammar school, it still has the original high arched ceilings and large windows, creating a wonderful sense of light and space. Black-and-white photographs of former pupils add to the historic charm, while contemporary interiors in lush red and green and a terrace place the hotel firmly in the present.

20th century – colonial Overlooking the Strait of Malacca, the Malaysian city of Malacca was once the centre of the spice trade, frequented by Arab, Tamil and Chinese merchants and ruled in turn by the Portuguese, Dutch and British. Narrow alleyways, Dutch colonial buildings and old shophouses selling genuine relics and antiques are all part of its legacy, as is The Majestic Malacca. Housed in a serene 1920s riverfront mansion and a new build that mirrors the original Straits-neoclassical architecture, it combines original porcelain flooring and antiques with spa and restaurant menus that draw on the local Peranakan (Chinese/Malay) culture. 20th century – ART DECO Art Deco is a popular architectural style and it’s hard not to like the kind of grand façade, soaring windows, geometric lines, wrought-iron balconies and period lettering found at The Excelsior Hotel in Thessaloniki, Greece. Inside, a marble staircase sweeps up to chic contemporary rooms and cocktails on the rooftop; Aristotelous Square and several empires’ worth of architectural and archaeological treasures are nearby.

The glamour of the 1930s is even more palpable at the Juana’s sister property, Hôtel BellesRives, also in Juan-les-Pins. The former home of Scott Fitzgerald and his wife, Zelda, this bold Art Deco mansion is replete with 1930s detailing, from period furniture in the bedrooms to frescoes in the seafront restaurant, La Passagère, the hotel lobby and the fabulous piano bar, the latter depicting a map of the 1930s Riviera, from the Cap d’Antibes to Sainte-Maxime. The hotel also has its own private beach and jetty; the Château Grimaldi in Antibes, where Picasso lived and worked in 1946, is a boat ride away.

The Majestic Malacca, Malacca The Excelsior Hotel, Thessaloniki

Built a decade later, Hôtel Juana in Juanles-Pins is another Art Deco gem with chic contemporary interiors, overlooking a stunning pool on the French Riviera. Period features include a staircase with intricate wrought-iron detailing, wood-framed glass doors, and a myriad of tiered chandeliers, while the new Bistrot Terrasse offers live jazz among the palm trees.

State-of-the-art technology is standard in all SLH hotels. But the architecture and design varies from antique to cutting-edge, giving each hotel a distinctive atmosphere and opening a door on a specific moment in time.

The Inn At Montchanin Village & Spa, Philadelphia

19th century – industrial On the other side of the Pond, the Industrial Age was also full steam ahead: most of the 11 historic houses that make up The Inn At Montchanin Village & Spa outside Wilmington in Delaware were once cottages inhabited by workers at the DuPont (gun) powder mills, while the hotel’s highly reputed Krazy Kats Restaurant was originally a blacksmith’s shop. Things are somewhat quieter in the Brandywine Valley today, with a focus on gentle strolls past beautifully tended gardens, and visits to wineries and art galleries.

Hôtel Juana, Juan-les-Pins

21st century L'AND Vineyards Resort outside Montemor-o-Novo in the Alentejo region of Portugal is very much of its time with its combination of striking sustainable architecture designed in harmony with nature that surrounds it – in this case 66 acres of vineyards, woodland and a shimmering lake. Try a tasting in the winery, some vinotherapy in the spa, and the regionally inspired organic cuisine in the restaurant, then travel back in time by visiting the Megalithic stones, medieval palaces and Moorish architecture nearby.

How was it for you? Posts from The Club of Small Luxury Hotels of the World™

Our reviews are written by genuine Loved Club members who have stayed more than twice at an SLH property. You can see all of our hotel reviews on

Casa Angelina, Amalfi Coast, Italy

“We stayed at Soniat House in New Orleans last Christmas. The hotel’s location is excellent for exploring the French Quarter, yet secluded with it." Top tip "Enjoy a drink at the honour bar and chat to Bill, the manager, about the area’s history and what to do there. He’s a fantastic source of local information.” Bill, UK

Rockcliffe Hall, Darlington, UK

“We had a very relaxing time at Casa Angelina on the Amalfi Coast in Italy recently. The mountainside setting is magnificent and the staff went out of their way to help. The Mediterranean food at the rooftop restaurant was excellent and varied and the facilities, including the outdoor pool, were very well maintained. We have stayed at many celebrated hotels and Casa Angelina ranks among the best." Top tip "Catch the sunset from the terrace.” Barry, Australia

“We have stayed at Tomtom Suites – The Old Franciscan House twice and I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else in Istanbul. It’s ideally located half way up the hill in Beyoglu (so you only ever have to do half the hill!) and a real haven from the chaos we love so much about the city. The front desk staff not only recommended fantastic things to do, but drew us maps to find them." Top tip "Ask Nural for restaurant recommendations, he is better than a guidebook.” Lucinda, Australia “Rockcliffe Hall outside Darlington is the best spa hotel in the UK. The facilities are state-of-the-art and the service is fantastic. The three restaurants, one of them in the hotel’s Victorian Old Hall and 18th-century Orangery, are excellent." Top tip "Book an Ila facial in the spa, then relax in the amazing hydro-pool.” Michele, UK

“With Franciacorta to the west and Prosecco to the east, Albergo al Sole in Asolo, northern Italy makes an excellent base for a short break or business trip. The standard of service was very high and the small hilltop town is delightful with an interesting history and a character of its own.” Top tip "Eat outside on the terrace in the warmer months.” Richard, UK “As frequent visitors to London, we'd heard good things about Dukes London on St James’s Place so were keen to try it. It’s exceptionally well run. The staff response to all our requests, from housekeeping to room service, was immediate, cordial and well executed. Davina at the front desk was a standout and the concierge managed to secure us last-minute tickets to one of the hottest shows in town. The location, close to the Royal Academy exhibitions and Green Park, is great and my wife was delighted with her stuffed dog mascot, which she took home for the grandkids." Top tip "Try ‘the best Martini in the world’ in the bar, former haunt of Ian Fleming.” Donn, USA “We had the pleasure of staying at the Villa di Monte Solare near Lake Trasimeno in Umbria, Italy, last October. We arrived in the pitch black so it was amazing to wake up the next morning and see the spectacular view over the rolling hills! The overall experience was superb. The staff were kind and helpful, the regional cuisine was excellent and our six-month-old daughter was warmly welcomed and well taken care of."

“My wife and I stayed at the Le Grand Bellevue in Gstaad on a recent holiday in Switzerland. The alpine scenery on the drive to the hotel was beautiful and we were greeted by the owner, Daniel and given an upgrade to a suite with a beautiful view. All the staff were pleasant, personal and helpful, remembering our name and bringing us our room key without us having to ask. The Michelin-starred food at Leonard’s was outstanding, the service exceptional." Top tip "Wind down in the vast spa before dinner.” Joseph, USA “Hotel De las Letras makes a good base in Madrid, especially for shopping in Chueca. My corner bedroom, (I was upgraded for being a Club member,) was very comfortable, with a great view over Gran Via. This was my second time at this hotel... I enjoyed the service, the decor, the staff and the location very much. People are very attentive and friendly to the Guests...I shall go back there when returning to Madrid." Top tip " If you want to feel the vibes of the City, just ask for a room on Gran Via.” Pierre-Philippe, France “Everything about Carmo’s Boutique Hotel in the vinho verde region of Portugal – the glamorous, contemporary-style suites, food and wine, helpful, friendly staff – is fabulous. The views and scenery are some of the best in Portugal.”

Villa di Monte Solare, Umbria, Italy


Top tip "Prepare to relax!” Samantha, UK

Top tip "Visit the nearby villages and vineyards.” Juha, Finland

“Velassaru Maldives is hard to fault: beautiful setting, superbly equipped minimalist rooms, fantastic holistic spa treatments. Hugely romantic."

“My second visit to La Plantación del Sur in Tenerife was as wonderful as the first. From the Atlantic views to the six swimming pools and the vast spa, I cannot fault it. My upgrade to a Garden Villa was much appreciated."

Top tip "Book a Water Villa.” Jun, Shanghai
