Here are some specifics on just three of the new listings – to whet your appetite.
Ambiente a Landscape Hotel, Sedona
Best room? The answer to the first question is a little tricky, as each Atrium has been individually placed and angled in such a way that it maximizes views of the red rocks and surrounding forest/landscape. So, it really depends on whether guests would prefer an Atrium with panoramic mountain views or one that’s a bit more tucked away and surrounded by ambient noise from the waterways snaking through the property. Atrium #7 is a favorite because of the view.
Room rates? Starting room rates as of March 1 are $1,800/night (USD). Included in that rate is exclusive access to Forty1, the signature restaurant onsite catering only to hotel guests, as well as several other amenities including a heated pool and hot tub, electric “e-trike” vehicles that are street-safe to transport guests around town, complimentary snacks and drinks in-room, a concierge who can assist with reservations/recommendations for activities, immediate proximity to the Adobe Jack Trailhead (one of Sedona’s most popular) for hiking/biking, and much more.
2 – Relais Santa Croce by Baglioni Hotels, Florence
Best room? The Santa Croce Royal Suite, one of the most fascinating and largest apartments in the city (260 sqmt), perfect for a family stay. It can be totally separated from the rest of the hotel to guarantee privacy.
Room rates? From €4,850 ($5,064) room only – the B&B supplement is €55 ($58).
3 – ESPACIO The Jewel of Waikiki
Best room? The Penthouse Suite. While every suite at Espacio offers guests a lavish experience, the three-bedroom Penthouse Suite is a cut above the rest, offering the hotel’s best view of the Pacific from its giant windows and private veranda.
A full-floor unit, the 2,250 square-foot suite offers the kind of space you’d more readily associate with a luxury home. The suite features two or three bedrooms gorgeously appointed with design elements and fixtures from countries around the world, from Italy to Morocco to Japan, and has room for up to eight guests. There are also three and a half bathrooms, which come equipped with a deep soaking tub, separate glassed shower, dry sauna and a Toto washlet. It also has its own Jacuzzi whirlpool on an ocean-view balcony, a fully-equipped designer kitchen, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth speaker, three smart TVs and a private elevator entrance, further ensuring each guest’s privacy.
Room Rate? The Penthouse Suite starts at $9,000 per night
This suite includes exclusive car service, full in-suite breakfast daily, a rooftop sunset caviar experience, a dinner at Mugen, Michel’s, or private chef event, and more.
The Penthouse suite offers a private entry on its own floor and comes complete with expansive living space, two separate bedrooms, a workspace den, and three and a half bathrooms with TOTO Washlets.
Now go out there and make sure your passport hasn’t expired!
