Baglioni

Nestled on five acres in the Salento countryside is a dreamy 17th-century abode that’s home to the latest Baglioni property. There are just 40 rooms here, housed within former stables and barns, and arranged around a central courtyard. Each has vaulted ceilings and whitewashed limestone elements, many have outdoor patios, and all are decorated in ridiculously relaxing neutral tones.

Cala di Volpe

Cala di Volpe first flung open its doors on Sardinia’s Costa Smeralda in 1962 with a jet-setting clientele that included Grace Kelly, James Bond, Princess Diana and, more recently, Beyoncé and Jay Z. The legendary property was designed by French architect Jacques Couëlle, who never met a curve he didn’t like, and created dramatic cavelike interiors here.

Four years ago, Bruno Moinard and Claire Bétaille were tasked with reinvigorating the arcades, arches, buttresses, hidden stairs, unexpected benches, and irregular layout of the hotel to make “this living organism breathe again.” Which they did, without messing with the Bohemian vibe of the 121 rooms, which retained their curves while adding others in the form of furniture and accessories, many by local Italian artisans.

03. COSME, A LUXURY COLLECTION RESORT, PAROS, GREECE

Cosme Paros

With 40 suites in whitewashed buildings, Cosme exudes the type of barefoot luxury that’s become synonymous with the Greek isles. The rooms, set on meandering pathways and designed by Athens architecture and interior design firm ID Laboratorium, are low-key luxe, which is par for the course on this low-key island, where most of one’s time is spent outdoors—specifically, in one’s plunge pool, the resort’s half-moon-shaped pool, beach club, spa , or beachfront restaurant.

04. THE MADRID EDITION

Edition Hotels

Billing itself as a “luxury lifestyle urban resort,” the Madrid Edition opened earlier this year in a predictably modern building in the heart of Madrid’s historic city center. Its clean-lined facade is embellished by an exceedingly ornate 18th-century Baroque portal, designed by Spanish architect Pedro de Ribera and salvaged from an adjacent building.

It’s one of several wow moments on the 100-room property, designed by minimalist architect John Pawson with Paris-based designer François Champsaur. There’s a crazy cool, very white, and very architectural floating spiral staircase, an ultrabright neon-pink hallway leading to a lobby lounge area (shown here), and insane backlit headboards in every room that mimic the aforementioned Baroque portal.

Maybourne Riviera

The Maybourne Hotel Group chose a spectacular spot for their first French hotel—a town on the Côte d’Azur where Irish architect Eileen Gray built her iconic Villa E-1027 and, right next door, Le Corbusier built his summer home, Le Cabanon. The decidedly modern 69-room Maybourne Riviera, designed by French architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte, is perched above the Mediterranean with envy-inducing views of Italy to the east and Monaco to the west; a global who’s who of designers were tapped for the interiors including Bryan O’Sullivan Studio, Andre Fu, Pierre Yovanovitch, and Rigby & Rigby. 

06. PASSALACQUA, LAKE COMO, ITALY

A historic villa, built in 1787 by Count Andrea Lucini Passalacqua with interiors by famed Swiss designer Giocando Albertolli, has been turned into Passalacqua, a wonderfully old-world, over-the-top, ultraposh 24-suite boutique hotel acquired and reimagined by the DeSantis family, owners of the equally legendary, but much larger, Grand Hotel Tremezzo.

Osborn House is what happens when Linda Boronkay, the former design director of Soho House, gets her creative hands on an 1892 building hidden away in a verdant forest two hours from Sydney. Namely, cozy yet unexpected spaces that are richly layered and immediately welcoming, celebrate natural materials and craft, and encourage lingering.

The historic main house now has 15 suites (no two are alike) with garden and forest views, and seven additional free-standing cabins placed in the surrounding woods, with fireplaces and balconies with soaking tubs. The wellness facilities feature a proper lap pool, state of the art spa with sauna, steam, cool plunge, and gym.

Guests sign up for one-to-four-week-long fitness retreats that include old-world luxe accommodations in the 1913 Art Nouveau palazzo, built to be the grandest hotel in Europe and a playground for the rich, powerful and famous who also came to experience the legendary healing powers of the area’s water.

Dior reopened the doors of their 30 Avenue Montaigne flagship earlier this year after a more-than two-year renovation of the 1865 building where the designer founded his couture house in 1946. It had been completely transformed by Peter Marino and now houses the expected shopping salons but also a museum, restaurant, pastry shop, gardens, and on the very top floor, a hotel suite available for overnight stays.

Arnaud Lacombe and his wife Graziella Buontempo have opened their first hotel property Il Capri Hotel, in a neo-Gothic Venetian–style palazzo overlooking the Gulf of Naples. The can’t-miss-it pink property features a color palette inspired by the pink found across the island and the striking volcanic reds of Mount Vesuvius.

the Luxury Collection

ELLE DECOR A-List designer Lorenzo Castillo was tasked with reimagining the the one-time home of Duke Mariano Fernández de Henestrosa y Ortiz de Mioño (aka the Duke of Santo Mauro) as the Santo Mauro, A Luxury Collection Hotel, in Spain’s buzzy capital city. 

new hotels The 12 Best New Hotels In The World

Castillo “strongly believe(s) that modernity should be softened and humanized with the use of antique pieces, works of art, and books,” and this philosophy is very much on display in the 49-room property, which is split among three buildings: the 1902 main mansion where the Duke lived with his family; the stables and staff quarters, which are now suites overlooking the garden; and another home, dating to 1876.

the Twenty Two

“A Lifestyle Hotel” is how London’s most talked about new property, the Twenty Two, is being billed. Located in an Edwardian mansion on Grosvenor Square, one of the most expensive neighborhoods in London, it’s the latest from Navid Mirtorabi, former owner of Blake’s, the beloved Anouska Hempel–designed hotel. Mirtorabi tapped Natalia Miyar to handle interiors of the 42,500-square-foot property, with 31 rooms, a mews house, and, this being London, a private member’s club.
