5 Beautiful Luxury Hotels in the World

1. The Four Seasons Hotel Ritz, Lisbon, Portugal

It’s all about attention to detail at The Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon.

The Four Seasons is known for its classic luxury from the rooms to the service. It is without doubt Lisbon’s premier luxury hotel, set in the perfect location in the heart of the bustling city. From the hotel you can view many of the incredible historic sites and awe-inspiring architecture. As a little something extra special they’ve added their Extraordinary Experiences – a sidecar tour of the city. The choices are endless – street art focus, finding the heritage tiles or just an overview of what this magical city has to offer.


2. Grande Hotel Timeo, Taormina, Italy

Sicily’s gorgeous stretch of coastline.

Known as one of Italy’s most glamorous getaways, The Belmond Grand Hotel Timeo sits high on the rocky outcrops of the east coast of Sicily. It was the very first hotel built in gorgeous Taormina, and here, location is everything. It’s built directly in front of the Greek theatre and with views of Mount Etna and the dramatic coastline, it really is the kind of place you book for very special occasions. Although, just being there is a memorable event all on its own…

3. The Ritz Carlton, Montreal, Canada

The Ritz Carlton Montreal.

For the perfect weekend escape from New York, Toronto, Chicago or Boston why not hop over to the French capital of the west. The Ritz Carlton offers suites with views across the city – and the executive suite even has a fireplace. Kick off your stay in style at the Dom Pérignon Champagne Bar.

4. Montage Palmetto Bluff, USA

The extravagant gardens of Palmetto Bluff in South Carolina.

Montage Palmetto Bluff is nestled along the May River in the low country of South Carolina between Hilton Head Island and Savannah. With an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus signature course, an exclusive spa, some private residences and, of course, various fine dining options – Montage Palmetto Bluff offers the best of the area. The hotel reopens this month after a massive renovation and everything looks even more beautiful than before.

5. Margaux, Greenwich Village, New York

Greenwich’s best-kept sectret, Margaux at the Marlton Hotel

Inside the Marlton Hotel, in the heart of Greenwich Village, is where Margaux hides away. For some romance make sure to get a table in the back conservatory area where Cauliflower Custard and Squid Ink Bucatini awaits for dinner. Finish off with a glass of something and slink upstairs to bed. Booking essential.
