JW Venice Resort & Spa, Italy
Perched pearl-like on the private island of Isola delle Rose, JW Venice Resort & Spa (pictured above) is a soothing retreat from the heady va-va-voom of Venice. The A-list arrival by private water taxi sets the tone for the luxuries in store at this 40-acre resort, graced with emerald gardens, olive groves and interiors that would have Bellini, Titian, Tintoretto and co. reaching for their paintbrush. A complimentary shuttle service connects guests to the heart of the city, but with a hushed spa, decadent restaurant and prosecco-loving bar, leaving won’t be easy.
The Westin London City, United Kingdom
The Westin London City (pictured above) overlooks a glorious gaggle of Big Smoke landmarks both ye olde and new, including the River Thames, Shakespeare’s Globe and the belligerently industrial-looking Tate Modern. Soak up those views with something (or someone) delicious at the panoramic wine bar and restaurant, safe in the knowledge that a Westin Hotel Heavenly Bed awaits. Experience London’s surprisingly soothing side at the WestinWORKOUT studio and Heavenly Spa, featuring six therapy rooms, a tranquil pool area and innovative thermal treatments.
The St Regis Florence, Italy
This stately, storied charmer (pictured above) has been wooing and seducing seasoned travellers since the 18th century – and shows no signs of decelerating. Rich, jewel-box hues, custom-made frescoes and shimmering crystal chandeliers pay tribute to the Cradle of the Renaissance, leaving visitors in no doubt as to where they are. The Winter Garden restaurant is a high-ceilinged, breath-stealing setting for Tuscan culinary adventures; round off the night in style at La Cantinetta Wine Cellar. Additional Florentine flourishes come in the form of attentive butlers and a spoiling spa.
