An icon, reborn

vacation

Once a famed nightclub which played host to Mick Jagger and David Bowie’s romps, Les Bains is back – this time as a boutique hotel in Paris’ Le Marais neighbourhood. Most notable is Les Bains’ ability to transcend its different spaces, through the creation of moods which both arouse and soothe. Behind the icon is prize-winning architect Vincent Bastie and his team of designers Tristan Auer and Denis Montel, who together restored this magnificent space in all its glory.

Beauty in the wilderness

vacation

Chandolin is a largely undiscovered resort in the Swiss Alps with less than 100 all-year residents. Amid the pines and larch trees of the Valaisian valley, the 25-room Chandolin Boutique Hotel is a holistic expression of archetypal Alpine luxury shot through with an environmentally conscious spirit. Boasting sustainable technology like thermal solar panels, dual-flow ventilation, and triple-glazing windows, the hotel’s reverence of its locale far surpasses mere aesthetic.

Coastal dreams

Making its debut on the glorious Provence coast between St. Tropez and Cannes, Hôtel Les Roches Rouges was reworked by renowned Parisian architecture firm Festen to emphasise the clean nautical-modernist lines of the 50-room hotel’s classic Riviera architecture. Taking advantage of its spectacular waterfront setting, the hotel features a natural seawater swimming pool and a swimming lane cut directly into the coastal rock.

Greek haven

vacation

Taking its name from the Greek word for “wave”, Myconian Kyma’s 52-room and 29-suite property is located a stone’s throw from Mykonos Town, on a sun-drenched perch just above the buzz below. From the curved lines of the multi-level infinity pool to the design and furniture seen throughout the whitewashed structures, a gentle flow abounds, bolstered by unobstructed views and top-notch pampering.
