The summer heat wave has hit London, so naturally we are thinking of leaving our beloved city for even warmer clims’ (it’s not like we can complain). So, if like us you’re still planning your summer get away and looking for the perfect hotel to stay in, we at Egelnick and Webb thought we’d share a short list of our favourite hotels in the world. Which one would you go for?
Situated in a restored United Artists building in Downtown LA. Silver-screen monochrome theme throughout. We very much like the vintage rooms with signature vinyl collection, turntables and guitars. They offer a range of cleansing juices in the bar, and an old movie theatre downstairs, that hosts film events and gigs. Not to mention a roof top complete with movie-set lights and a pool.
It’s open-air lobby is modern and feels like a museum. This hotel also stands out with tuberose leis, contemporary Hawaiian art and bath products from Kauai-based Malie in the breezy minimalist rooms. If you need some therapy, you can also choose from various treatments with local herbs and macadamia-nut oil.
Very stylish hotel just on the norther Pacific coast inspired by the wild surroundings. The lobby is a cocoon-shaped pod, while all the rooms are stone-structured and some of them boast a private plunge pool, looking over the Pacific. One of the best treats this stylish hotel has to offer is waking-up to volcanic treetop treatment rooms at the spa.
This bright and airy villas’ history goes as far back as 1830 when it was built as a private seaside residence. The Sicilian marble floors, Murano glass and ceramics, balance perfectly with the private shingle beach, and rooms overlooking the sea and the slopes of neighbouring Mount Etna.
The architecture is brilliant. The villas are massive with pillars that reveal themselves to be sails, which in turn pivot to become walls. There’s also a tiny island full of treatment rooms – each with private beach, sea views and spa bars.
