Hotel Luxe Element

  • Sunbathers flock to this quiet cove on the outskirts of Hvar, Croatia, to lounge on its stony beach, cool themselves in the Adriatic Sea, and to pay a visit to Mustačo Hvar — a large house with a lively tavern at sea level that offers accommodations and spectacular sea views on its upper floors. Travel tip: With such proximity to the ocean, the restaurant's seafood is exceptionally fresh, so be sure to dig into some grilled calamari or a seafood platter for two.

  • Trancoso’s UXUA Casa Hotel & Spa is a luxurious Brazilian escape — and a sustainable one, too. The hotel was created without disturbing the natural habitat that surrounds it, and prides itself on hosting visitors in the heart of its historic community. Even more impressive? It's the only property listed for three consecutive years as a nominee for Virtuoso's Sustainable Tourism Leadership Award. (📷: @ourtodays 📍: UXUA, Trancoso, Bahia)
  • Located in the Gothic Quarter of Barcelona, the rustic red bricks of the Soho House Barcelona ripple through the refurbished 18th-century mansion, with similar eye-catching design and architecture present throughout its 57 guest rooms, trendy bar, rooftop pool, and two restaurants. Travel tip: Join a walking tour to learn more about the fascinating history of this famous Spanish city, as well as to check out some of it’s most popular landmarks — like the Sagrada Familia.

  • Palm trees sway above the orange-roofed villas lining the Southern coast of Sri Lanka, while the waves of the Indian Ocean break along its rocky cliffs and golden shores. The Saman Villas, a novel and undeniably intimate boutique hotel, offer luxurious accommodations amidst the lush greenery of a coconut plantation, creating a wonderfully idyllic and tranquil atmosphere for its guests. Travel tip: Enjoy a scenic walk across the nearby paddy fields to find the 125-year-old Katukoliha temple — an ideal spot for catching panoramic views of the sun setting over the country's ancient architecture.(📷: @_dgtravel_ 📍: Saman Villas - Sri Lanka)
  • Surrounded by a desolate desert valley, the facade of the Anantara Al Jabal Al Akhdar Resort — which consists of 33 luxurious, private pool villas and 82 canyon-view rooms — blends seamlessly into the canyon it's nestled within. Travel tip: Don’t miss the nearby Sayq Viewpoint for impeccable views of the area's rugged landscapes during the day, or stop by at night for spectacular star gazing opportunities.

  • Hidden among lush greenery, the Udaya Spa and Resort in Ubud, Bali, blends idyllically romantic decor with modern amenities. Take a swim in the private pool that borders your suite, or attempt your best downward dog during one of the resort’s complimentary, sunrise rooftop yoga classes. Being surrounded by Mother Nature blessings doesn’t end with the resort’s decor — stop by its second-floor restaurant for a farm-to-table meal that will make it hard to resist reaching for seconds.
