Stay at: Rome Cavalieri, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel
Rome is such an enchanting destination with its abundance of culture, divine cuisine (more gelato, please!), and its incredible people. We’re dreaming of being immersed in all things Rome and being able to take in the city from above at Rome Cavalieri, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel. Uniquely perched atop Monte Mario, offering a breathtaking panoramic view of the city, Rome Cavalieri offers a delightful link to the best of the city’s culture, while providing a haven to relax in after a day of sightseeing. With a massive luxurious spa, Rome’s first and only 3-Michelin-Star restaurant, La Pergola, a striking museum-worthy art collection, an abundance of fun for little ones and much more, Rome Cavalieri is where we want to hunker down for a perfect romantic Roman holiday.
Stay at: Grand Hotel Kronenhof
Grand Hotel Kronenhof stands in the very heart of Pontresina, an attractive Engadine village. Just six kilometers from St. Moritz, Grand Hotel Kronenhof offers the best of both worlds: the chance to enjoy the glitz of St. Moritz, while staying in a peaceful mountain location. With a tranquil garden edged by magnificent pine and larch, Pontresina’s only five-star deluxe hotel looks out onto breath-taking Alpine vistas with the Roseg Glacier in the distance. Close to the two most famous peaks of the Engadine (Piz Palu and Piz Bernina), we’re dreaming of this paradise that offers an endless array of activities from biking in summer. Look no further than Grand Hotel Kronenhof for a romantic, relaxing break away from it all in an exceptionally beautiful setting.
Stay at: Pine Cliffs, a Luxury Collection Resort
Nestled atop red-ochre cliffs overlooking the Atlantic shore, Pine Cliffs Resort in the Algarve, Portugal is one of our favorite destinations for a spot of romantic relaxation. We’re longing to sip cocktails at the Mirador Champagne Bar against a panoramic sunset, laze beside the myriad of glistening pools with a smoothie, and unwind with yoga and meditation sessions in the tranquil Tabu Garden. We can’t wait for our next spa treatment at Serenity – The Art of Well Being, particularly the signature Senses of the Algarve which uses indigenous ingredients such as sea salt scrubs and carob body wraps. From the Annabel Croft Tennis Academy to the challenging nine-hole golf course, to the new state-of-the-art fitness studio, there’s plenty to do all year-round – and it’s where we’ll be taking our next sunshine sojourn.
St. Moritz, Switzerland
Stay at: Kulm Hotel St. Moritz
The first hotel in St. Moritz, the legendary Kulm Hotel has been long credited with bringing tourism to the alpine region. The property is renowned for its exceptional culinary offerings, outstanding service standards, stunning location with breath-taking views of Lake St. Moritz and the Engadine Valley, magnificent new rooms by Pierre-Yves Rochon, and its wide-ranging health and fitness offering, including its spectacular modern spa. Stunning in all seasons, Kulm Hotel’s grandeur is day-dream-worthy. We are excited for a dip in the swimming pool overlooking the mountains, a lap on the natural ice-skating rink, and a bite of the absolute best truffle pizza at the nearby restaurant, La Marmite.
