The Whitby Hotel is the second New York property of the British-based Firmdale hotels, and the 10th in a roster that never fails to impress. Minutes from the MoMA, Broadway and Central Park, the Whitby’s location is hard to beat. But just like any Firmdale hotel, it’s what’s inside that counts. This Englishman in New York wears all the hallmarks of the hotel chain: 86 colorful rooms with floor to ceiling windows, a state of the art private cinema and a hotel bar that’s already got the Midtown and Downtown crowds rushing to it for the seasonal menu by Chef Anthony Paris. If you’re after a hotel with a design and vibe that’s off the beaten track next time you’re in New York, make it the Whitby Hotel.

If Mallorca is getting too touristy and bling for your taste, a trip to the island’s sunny North East will turn you into a fan again. This is the Mallorca of old, with empty beaches, sensational seafood, friendly locals and medieval towns nestled within the breathtaking Mediterranean landscape. If you’d like to visit, the latest addition to our collections, the Park Hyatt Mallorca, puts you right at the heart of it all. Only minutes away from the Canyamel Beach and the historic towns of Capdepera and Arta, the Park Hyatt – designed like a traditional Mallorcan village – delivers authenticity and level of luxury service hard to beat.

With its golf course, 4000 sq/m spa, winter ice rink and generously sized rooms and grounds, the Dolder Grand is an excellent hotel for your next trip to Switzerland. But, considering that it’s just 15 minutes away from central Zurich, it’s downright unmissable. To top it all off, the interiors of this “city resort” are filled with original artwork which would fit right into any museum. Expect to see a Dali, Botero, and Warhol before you even make it to your dinner table. Enjoy its two Michelin-starred dinner table.

Downtown. Is there anywhere else you’d rather be in New York? If you’re the type who thrives on the Big Apple’s frenetic pace, that answer is a resounding no. Battery Park, the Hudson River, the One World Trade Center, the financial district… it’s all here. But, when the time comes to call it a day, you’ll be looking forward to the peace and quiet of the Four Seasons Hotel New York Downtown.

At the Shangri-La Villingili Resort & Spa, it’s not the picture-perfect sunsets, sugary beaches or lush forests that’ll have you in awe. No, the true luxury is the incredible amount of space the resort puts at your disposal. 3km long, and stretching over 12 hectares, the Villingili Island is gigantic by Maldivian standards and is one of the biggest single-resort island luxury playgrounds you’ll ever experience.
