Juicy Tidbits

Conde Nast Traveler says..."The specs: A new 526-room seaside resort in the southeastern tourist enclave of Nusa Dua. The look: Sleek contemporary, finished with polished exotic woods and marbles. The two five-story wings flank a vast central courtyard; rooms are furnished in warm-hued neo-deco furniture, with old-gold highlights and Balinese artwork. The experience: The Mulia resort is part of a sprawling complex comprising three discrete properties—a virtual pleasure city by the sea. Its 15 acres are divided into a series of tropical parterres, with three swimming pools and nine smaller lagoon pools, descending to a sandy beach. The garden encloses a pre-existing temple where daily prayers and ceremonies continue to be performed. There are four excellent restaurants (international/Indonesian, Mediterranean, Japanese, deli), three bars, and a nightclub. A few details have been overlooked (no hand soap in the lavatory), but the service is butler-attentive throughout, even in the standard rooms. " ~From cntraveler.com

Juicy Tidbits

Conde Nast Traveler says..."The specs: A series of two-story teak houses in the leafy Wat Gate neighborhood. The look: Irreverent colonial. Rooms and public spaces are outfitted in gleaming dark teak and accented with cotton elephant-print cushions and celadon urns, but this is no slavish re-creation of a bygone era. Beautiful partitions thick with creeping vines punctuate the property, and behind check-in is a wall designed to look like an apothecary's many-drawered chest. The experience: The best thing about this sweet and modest 30-suite property is its neighborhood. Chiang Mai hotels tend to be located outside town or in tourist enclaves; Wat Gate, with its charming houses and flowering trees, feels like a real community. Rooms are large and unfussy, with substantial balconies and outdoor showers. The big drawback is noise: owing to the coziness of the property, sounds from the public spaces are clearly audible." ~From cntraveler.com

21c Museum Hotel Cincinnati

This hotel says...

21c Cincinnati features 156 guest rooms and suites-a contemporary art museum with more than 8000 square feet of exhibition space open to the public free of charge-a restaurant and bar-meeting and event spaces-fitness and business centers-and a rooftop spa. 21c Cincinnati strengthens the Queen Citys role as a cultural destination.

Juicy Tidbits

Conde Nast Traveler says..."The specs: A 1924 landmark turned art hotel in downtown Cincinnati, next to the Contemporary Arts Center and across the street from the Aronoff Center for the Arts. The look: The old Metropole Hotel survives in the restored terrazzo floor, curving staircase, arched windows, and ornate plasterwork of 21c, its every corner, from the 156 guest rooms to the nine-story solarium, a showcase for contemporary art. Much of it is playful and witty, such as the trademark four-foot yellow penguins that pop up in elevators and hallways.The experience: Just like its Louisville sister, Cincinnati's 21c hosts rotating exhibits and installations that draw locals as well as out-of-towners, and its restaurant, led by Louisville import Michael Paley, specializes in local ingredients like bison burgers cooked in a wood-burning fireplace. Once the theater crowd descends in the late evening, the mood goes from reflective to rollicking. Enjoy the surge by grabbing a drink at the street-level lounge or the rooftop bar for a panoramic city view. " ~From cntraveler.com

Juicy Tidbits

Conde Nast Traveler says..."The specs: A new multi-purpose low-rise glass-and-steel building with 126 rooms in arty Zurich West, a former working-class neighborhood and factory district. The look: Zurich architect Alfredo Haberli's hip, handsome, and highly functional design brings to mind a grown-up youth hostel. Public spaces have parquet floors, contemporary furniture, and colorful rugs. Though the decor and amenities vary, most rooms come with purple felt curtains, eggplant-colored laminate furniture, gray walls, and undulating suspension lamps. The experience: Visual wit is a trademark of this small German hotel group, which attracts a stylish young clientele that actually likes to hang out in the public spaces. The laid-back communal atmosphere, a departure from conventional European hotels, is encouraged by a friendly, smart staff. " ~From cntraveler.com

Amanzo'e

Amanzo'e

This hotel says...

Surrounded by undulating olive groves and overlooking the island of Spetses and the Argosaronic Gulf beyond, Amanzoe is just a 10-minute drive from the tavernas and vibrant life of Porto Heli. The road approaching Amanzoe ascends to the porte-cochere, a grand marble-clad edifice which serves as the entrance. Beyond lies the hilltop resort, arranged around an expansive reflection pool with spectacular views of the sea.

Juicy Tidbits

Conde Nast Traveler says..."The specs: Thirty-eight hilltop pavilions outside the yachting resort of Porto Heli. The property is surrounded by olive groves and working farms and has magnificent sea views. The look: Mediterranean minimalism by Ed Tuttle, the architect behind many an Aman property. The light-filled, cathedral-ceilinged pavilions are completely private, built around courtyards with private pools. Oak-paneled interiors have sliding wooden doors and matte-finished marble floors. The experience: Aside from visits to the Mycenaean ruins or a stylish harborside restaurant, guests tend to hole up and take advantage of this destination resort's many attractions, including an eight-treatment-room spa and a private beach club reached via the hotel's Mercedes SUV. In addition to a sandy strand, the club has a full menu of water sports/boating activities, two freshwater pools, an excellent restaurant, a bar, and vast terraces with loungers. " ~From cntraveler.com

Travel + Leisure says..."If the ancient Greeks designed a city on a hill today, with all the innovations of the modern world, it would probably look and feel like Amanzo’e. Its stone columns, acres of olive trees, and panoramic views of azure seas—not to mention its 38 residence-like, plunge-pooled guest pavilions, private beach club, three 90-foot-long green-marble-lined pools, and 12,000-square-foot spa—would make any returning Homeric hero weep. Add to that its covetable position on the Peloponnese peninsula’s sun-drenched southern coast, known for secluded pebbled beaches and easy access from Athens (the capital is just over two hours away by car or hydrofoil), and you’re well on your way to Elysium." ~From Travelandleisure.com
