Hokkaido’s powdery slopes are on your doorstep at the exclusive Higashiyama Niseko Village , a Ritz-Carlton winter sanctuary overlooking a mountainous landscape. Snow holidays don’t get much better than this: the hillside resort opens onto the Niseko United Ski Area, which boasts 70 ski runs, 50km of slopes and, for the adventurous, 30km of backcountry skiing. No wintery Japanese holiday is complete without a dip in an onsen, and the resort offers access to its indoor and outdoor baths. A do san (cultural concierge) will also be appointed to you for the duration of your stay to cater to your sightseeing needs, whether that includes reindeer sleddging or snow rafting with the family. Wind down with Ume Lounge’s wide range of Japanese whiskeys by the fireplace and treat yourself to an omakase experience at Sushi Nagi .
This stunning new Tasmanian hotel is a journey through 180 years of design, blending 19th-century old-world glamour with art deco detailing and luxurious modern touches, reflecting the heritage of the three buildings it’s housed across. The hotel boasts views of Hobart’s waterfront from elegant rooms, whose designs are linked by native Tasmanian materials, exceptionally high-quality fixtures and homely accents. Hobart’s dining scene is world-class, and The Tasman’s venues don’t disappoint: retreat to Mary Mary for cocktails that celebrate local ingredients, or pair pizza fritta with lamb skewers and slow-cooked wagyu ragu at the modern Italian restaurant, Peppina.
Located just a few minutes from Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter, this five-star hotel is just steps away from iconic sites such as the Picasso Museum, Santa Caterina Market and Catedral de Barcelona. Discover what makes Catalonian cuisine so distinctive at Bar Alegria , a tapas bar that draws from Chef Tomas Abellan’s childhood favourites and classic treats. After a long day spent racking up steps on the city’s pavements, relax in your room, or head to the rooftop to soak in the plunge pool and grab a drink at the bar. You won’t want to miss the view: it’s one of the best in Barcelona.
Pack your party shoes: it’s a non-stop party at the W Bali , located in the upscale Seminyak. Whether you’re booking a destination bridal shower or a weekend of fun with pals, this luxe locale has it all with pool villas, beachfront bars and restaurants, and a rolling roster of internationally renowned DJs. As well as spending time at the striking outdoor pool, which is inspired by tiered rice paddies, and the spa, which is open for midnight treatments, you’ll want to book in for their famed Sunday brunch at Starfish Bloo . Think fresh-off-the-line seafood and sushi, a full carvery, and even a dim sum station.
Add a new Parisian chapter to your love story at the Prince de Galles , a historic five-star hotel which has hosted the likes of Marlene Dietrich, Elvis Presley and Winston Churchill. Opened in 1929, the property retains its elegant art deco details with a tranquil mosaic courtyard and rich interiors fit for royalty (who, by the way, have also stayed here). Sights such as the Arc de Triomphe are within a short walking distance, and so is the boutique-lined Champs-Élysées, home to French fashion house flagships like Guerlain and Louis Vuitton – if you’re looking for a gift for someone truly special.
