Built on a former military fortress opening on the bay of Palma de Mallorca, Hotel Cap Rocat is one of the most coveted resorts in Majorca.

And now it has just unveiled its spa, which is a space dug out of the rock! At the spa, you can find various facilities to help you relax, rest and rejuvenate including an underground pool, open-air treatment cabins, Ayurvedic rituals and Pilates private lessons.


After a short 6-month hiatus, Hostellerie La Cheneaudière & Spa is back in action with its hidden chalets in the Alsatian nature to offer you an eco-responsible spa experience.

In its refurbished halls, you will find an over 2000 square metre space fitted with a Thalasso, an outdoor pool with vegetation filtering and a sauna with panoramic views of the mountains.

Only two words can describe this scenic place – ultimate bliss!


For Luxurious Stays  

Opened in 1905, this grand establishment opposite Lake Geneva is one of the most unique hotels in the world. Nestled within a 47-acre wooded ground, the Hotel Royal had hosted the likes of Marcel Proust and Edith Piaf, making it known as the writers' den.

After its refurbishment in 2015, the rooms and suites, overlooking the calm waters, are simply divine on the eyes and absolute pleasure for the body.

And did we mentioned that your entire experience bespoke to your personal whims? Be it helicopter chauffeurs or high-speed boat rides on Lake Geneva, you name it, they have it.


Located right in the heart of the Bordeaux vineyards, this raw wood rustic establishment created by Caudalie, the French beauty mogul, offers a tasteful and idyllic retreat for all.

From its renowned Caudalie spa treatments to the many outdoor activities and the delectable menu at its starry restaurant, Les Sources des Caudalie is the place to be for the entire family.


If you love mid-century inspired living than the Hotel La Bastide de Gordes is the destination for your summer getaway.

Perched on a hilltop fortress at the downtown area of Gordes, the hotel highlights a stunning Provencal styled interior, unrivalled to most in the world.

From its luxurious suites to its pool overlooking the town of Gordes and fine dining experience, Hotel La Bastide is no short of indulgence for the discerning travellers.


For Epicureans' Delight

For the lovers of fine wine and delicacies, there's one place you need to be – Anouk by the boutique hotel Amastan Paris on the 8th Arrondissement, Paris.

An intimate night bar and restaurant for just a seating of 30, the restaurant sets itself apart with custom cocktails based on rare spirits, served with precise and seasonal tapas.

Pair that with the modern minimalistic decor in the hotel's entirety, you get the perfect contemporary summer holiday.


For gin enthusiasts, there's no better place to be than The Distillery in London for your summer tasting experience.

Located in the buzzing Portobello Road, The Distillery is one of the liquor meccas of London, where you can find unique gin blends, tasting workshops, a hotel and even a museum under one roof.
