Hotel Alexander: Located in the Torre Virreyes skyscraper in Mexico City, Hotel Alexander offers 26 suites filled with Italian furnishings, a gym, a Caviar Bar and a range of concierge-booked experiences from private yoga to sound healing. At Carmela y Sal restaurant led by Chef Gabriela Ruiz Lugo, guests can savor Mexican cuisine. The menu is inspired by the flavors of the Tabasco region. The nearby, upscale residential neighborhoods of Palmas and Polanco are also ideal for exploring.


Quinta do Paral: Opened in 2023, this organic winery hotel is a passion project for the Morszeck family, founders of the Rimowa luggage brand, who wanted to sustain and support the wine traditions of the Alentejo. The property is surrounded by the plains and peaks of Vidigueira in Portugal. Quinta do Paral is a haven for wine lovers with 75 acres of gardens, vines and olive groves. The property has 22 rooms and suites spread between the renovated, historic main house and in the spacious, newly-built guest accommodations. Guests can enjoy horse-riding through century-old vines, cooking classes, private jet arrival and more in the Alentejo region.

Masseria Donna Menga: This restored 16th-century farmhouse is within reach of the sandy beaches of Puglia’s Ionian coastline. Located in Nardò Lecce, Italy, the 24-room property also has a restaurant that showcases produce mainly sourced from the organic kitchen gardens, olive groves and orchards surrounding the masseria. Creative cocktails are offered at the Lounge Bar. The pool is surrounded by gardens, and there are plenty of indoor-outdoor spaces to relish.

Maxx Royal Bodrum Resort: Located on a private peninsula in Türkiye and framed by pine forests and the Aegean Sea, the newly opened resort has 294 keys.

The Hotel Seiryu Kyoto Kiyomizu: This former 1930s school has been transformed into a luxury hotel that opened in 2020. Classrooms have become deluxe guest rooms, and the lounge and restaurant are housed in the original lecture hall. Drinking and dining options include Benoit Kyoto, a restaurant overseen by Ducasse Paris, and the K36 bar and restaurant on the rooftop. Located in the historic Higashiyama district, the property is within walking distance of UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Kiyomizu-dera temple and old Kyoto.
