The haveli rooms at this strikingly designed boutique hotel have winding passageways, narrow staircases, low beds with colourful razais—and a dazzling view of the Mehrangarh Fort as soon as you open your eyes.
Phang Nga Bay is where sea meets sky in the most dazzling embrace. The resort is carved into an island that you access by boat; you can eat, sleep and swim under the stars. Walk on the beach at sunset, sip on fruity cocktails and fall hopelessly in love with everyone and everything around you.
It packs in all my favourite NYC things: a view of the skyline (and the Hudson), the nightlife and shopping of the Meatpacking District, achingly chic staff. The sexy quotient flies through the roof thanks to floor-to-ceiling glass windows and free-standing tubs inches from your bed.
Imagine you own 7,000 acres of pristine nature in between two national parks. Now, imagine building on just 2% of that area and leaving the rest to be enjoyed as is. Each of the 40 villas here has a pool, two fireplaces and a stunning view of the Blue Mountains. Hike, trek, go horseback riding: this is perfect for lovers—and lovers of nature.
This place embodies what a luxury resort in the desert should be: the tents are opulent, the private outdoor pool is temperature-controlled, and at night you see nothing but sand dunes and fire torches. Plus, this magical oasis is less than an hour from Dubai airport, so it’s an easy surprise getaway for your loved one.
