Le Riad Yasmine, Marrakech

Chances are you have seen this hotel on your Instagram feed once or twice, and are you honestly surprised? This green and pleasant palace is a glorious riad in the heart of the Marrakech medina, and everyone who is anyone wants to be there. Away from the hustle and bustle of the square, this boutique hotel is a sanctuary for peace and quiet, and it doesn’t look too shabby either.

Giraffe Manor, Kenya

Ever shared your breakfast with a giraffe? No? Neither have we, but boy would we like to! If you are an animal lover, then this is 100% the hotel for you. Based just outside Nairobi National Park, Giraffe Manor does exactly what it says on the tin. The manor boasts 12 opulent boutique suites and is home to some stunning grounds, which you will – of course – have to share with the resident giraffes. But that’s not the only thing you’ll have to share! Your afternoon tea and breakfast will be accompanied by a visit from our rather lofty friends. Not only is the hotel an unrivalled place to get up close and personal with nature, but it also offers a great base from which to go on safari in Nairobi National Park.

Arctic TreeHouse Hotel, Finland

If the seeing the northern lights, visiting Santa and sleeping amongst snow-covered treetops are all entries on your bucket list then this is the hotel for you. Combining all three things in effortless style, the Arctic TreeHouse Hotel offers luxury inside the Arctic Circle. Situated in Lapland, and moments from the magical Santa Claus Village, a holiday in this hotel is a dream come true for the whole family. Obviously the preferred time to visit is during the depths of winter when Santa is at his busiest, but summer in Finland is equally lovely, and the region offers some of the longest days in the world! Suites are kitted out with floor to ceiling windows, while plush textiles and cosy furnishings mean you don’t even have to leave your bed to enjoy the views! Sounds like our kind of holiday!

Green Village Bali, Indonesia

Okay so this isn’t technically a hotel – it is a compound made up of bamboo structures to create a village in the Balinese palm trees! Guests are able to rent entire villas or simply a single room in one of the larger properties. Created solely from eco-friendly materials, Green Village Bali offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience, where you can rest secure in the knowledge that your holiday is as sustainable as they come. The community of individuals who live in, and are drawn to the village, are united in their passion for a sustainable way of living and belief that, in life, nature is the true luxury!

Ever dreamed of sleeping in a secret cave with your own private pool and views out to sea? Well the Dana Suites and Infinity Villas on the island of Santorini could be about to make all of your wildest dreams come true.

For the Lovers Of Yester-Year

Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel

Fancy stepping back in time to 1970s Miami? Well, while we can’t offer you a time machine, we can show you the next best thing, plus it’s a lot closer to the UK than the Sunshine State! The Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel is like the set of Grease on steroids.. Each suite is a cheerful shade of blush pink, sunshine yellow, or vibrant teal – and then there’s the flamboyant pool to match! Everything from the cocktail bar to the pool is tiled with hexagonal pink mosaic tiles, and when you need a place to relax after a night on the town, there are Balinese beds or pink retro egg chairs to chill out on. Add in a couple of strategically placed cacti and you’ve got the perfect recipe for an Instagram shoot. Booked your flights yet?

Madonna Inn, California

We love a bit of luxury, but sometimes you just need a bit of craziness in your life to bring you crashing back down to earth and remind you how normal you are. You will undoubtedly find that craziness at the Madonna Inn, California. Be warned though, this hotel is not for the faint-hearted. Offering suites that look like replicas of Fred and Wilma’s master bedroom, an opulent steakhouse doused in hot pink furnishings, and a real-life ranch on your doorstep, a break to the Madonna Inn is one that you won’t forget in a hurry.

Claridge’s Hotel, London

Although inns have been around since Jesus was born, hotels as we know them today are only just over 200 years old, and the UK is home to some of the oldest in existence. One of the first to open was Claridge’s in London, built in 1856. The epitome of luxury and often the favoured hotel of the rich and famous, Claridge’s is one of Britain’s poster girl hotels. Though the guest rooms have been modernised and updated over the years, the dedication to luxury has remained much the same. Many of the original features in the bars, foyer and ballrooms remain intact, and if you do fancy a taste of ye olde England you can enjoy a spot of afternoon tea, which is almost as old as the hotel itself. Spiffing!
