Juicy Tidbits

Conde Nast Traveler says..."With "a dreamy location" on Mai Khao Beach, on Phuket's less frenetic northern coast, this "fantastic hotel" on a former coconut plantation is all gardens and grand entryways. Traditional Thai villas border a free-form lagoon and have wood-beam ceilings, terrazzo tubs, outdoor decks, and private pools. "Staff do everything well—incredibly well." For Thai-accented tapas and Andaman Sea views, climb to the Tree House—accessed via a spiral staircase that wraps around an ancient banyan tree. Sea Fire Salt does a beachside seafood barbecue and has a salt sommelier on hand. Mixologists man the infinity pool bar." ~From cntraveler.com

Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."The Banyan Tree, which opened in the lavish Mayakoba coastal development in March 2009, upped the opulence ante with 107 private stand-alone villas (the smallest is 3,150-plus square feet), complete with slate floors, Talavera earthenware sinks, and soaring glass skylights. Each is a sanctuary, with its own walled garden, pool, and sun terrace, while the decadent spa and private beach club encourage style-setters to meander through the gardens and dunes." ~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."This first foray into the Americas by the Asian hotel chain is set amid dunes, mangroves, and freshwater lagoons. Freestanding villas are decorated with handcrafted Mayan furnishings and modern amenities. All with private pools, they curve around their own garden areas, creating "nirvana on earth." Dishes at the adults-only Tamarind, next to the "wonderful spa," are Mediterranean influenced, while Saffron serves Thai food. Private dining can be arranged for parties of up to 14 at La Cava, in the hotel's wine cellar. "Staff are attentive without hovering." ~From CondeNastTraveler.com

The only hotel in the heart of Florence with an on-site spa. The hotel also offers a fully equipped fitness centre and outdoor pool. The Four Seasons hotel Florence offers elegant art-filled surroundings and impeccable service that makes every stay memorable.

Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."Following a massive building restoration, Florence’s 116-room Four Seasons hotel opened in June 2008. Located in the fifteenth-century Palazzo della Gherardesca—with monumental frescoed halls and room décors that range from opulent Renaissance suites to a discreetly elegant, almost Georgian style in most rooms—this is the city’s first true resort hotel. Facilities include a spa, an outdoor pool, and an 11-acre private park. Room amenities go beyond the usual satellite TV to included DVD players, iPod docking stations, twice-daily maid service, and WiFi. Service, under manager Patrizio Cipollini, is top notch. There's an ex-convent—500 yards away, on the far side of the park—with its own entrance at 46 Via Gino Capponi." ~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."The 11-acre botanical garden that is home to these two restored Renaissance buildings—a fifteenth-century palazzo and a sixteenth-century convent—is “like heaven.” Rooms with frescoes and ceiling murals have amenities made by a Florence-based perfumer, and public areas showcase Renaissance art. “The whole hotel feels steeped in history”—although it can be “a bit stuffy.” Dine alfresco at Il Palagio, which uses locally sourced ingredients. The Winery serves more than 50 Italian wines by the glass and has a list of nearly 400 bottles. Stroll tree-lined paths to the two-story herbal spa, where wet-treatment rooms have glass mosaic walls and floors: “It’s very expensive, but wonderful for a splurge.” ~From cntraveler.com

Juicy Tidbits

Travel + Leisure says..."Set in the heart of Sultanahmet—a few minutes' walk from Hagia Sophia, the Hippodrome, the Blue Mosque, and Topkap? Palace—this property’s century-old Neoclassical building and manicured garden courtyard have hosted hotel guests since 1996. (In its earlier incarnation—as the city’s most famous prison—it was home to longer-term “visitors,” such as dissident poet Naz?m Hikmet.) The 65 plush guest rooms here, though outfitted in traditional Four Seasons fashion (genteel wood antique repros, damask upholstery, plush wall-to-wall carpet), are greatly enhanced by the building’s graceful architecture, which incorporates vaulted ceilings and arched windows. Though there’s no swimming pool, the roof terrace, with views across the Sea of Marmara, is lovely in the summertime." ~From Travelandleisure.com

Conde Nast Traveler says..."Once a Turkish prison, this mustard-yellow hotel surrounds a landscaped courtyard garden—formerly the exercise yard. The three-story neoclassical property is five minutes from the covered bazaar and spice market. The hotel retains hints of its past, including an inmate’s inscription on a marble pillar. Watchtowers house the elevators. “It seems smaller and feels more intimate than it is. We were addressed by name everywhere we went, and the concierge is incredible.” “Rooms are beautifully arranged, with breathtaking views of the courtyard,” and have headboards and bedposts that resemble a mosque’s dome and minarets. While the formal dining at Seasons is “simply okay,” “the rooftop has stunning views of Hagia Sophia illuminated at night.”~From cntraveler.com
