Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort, Thailand
Meaning ‘home on a beautiful cliff’ the literal Samui Baan Taling Ngam Resort sits in 8.9 hectares of prime beachfront. The resort has 79 guestrooms, suites, and beachfront villas with private plunge pools. The resort features seven swimming pools, a private beach, private jetty, and runs the concierge programme ‘In the Know’, which offers guests insider experiences to better understand and appreciate the haven of Koh Samui.



Soho House Berlin
In the Mitte district of the German capital, Soho House Berlin has launched 20 serviced apartments in addition to its private members’ club. In keeping with the distinctive style of the club, the interiors of the apartments reflect 1930s faded glamour. Featuring a well-equipped working kitchen, guests can choose to cook using a grocery service that will stock the fridge, or have full room service delivered to the door.



Four Seasons Guangzhou
Soaring above the Pearl River, Four Seasons Hotel Guangzhou occupies the top 30 floors of the new 103-storey International Finance Center (IFC) Guangzhou. The hotel offers 344 guest rooms, including 42 suites. Dine at Kumoi on the 72nd floor where Michelin-starred Japanese restaurant chef Kazumi Sawada has come from Tokyo to lead the expert teppanyaki, yakitori and sushi teams, then head skyward to enjoy cocktails at the 99th floor Tian Bar.



Dorset Square Hotel
The husband and wife team behind Firmdale Hotels, Kit and Tim Kemp, recently reacquired their very first property, the Dorset Square Hotel in London’s Marylebone, which they originally bought in the 80s. From the sumptuous drawing room and The Potting Shed bar and restaurant to all 38 bedrooms, each room has been individually designed and is adorned with items gathered from around the globe. Many of the guestrooms look out onto the private gardens of Dorset Square.



The Siam, Bangkok
The Siam features the most spacious suites in the city, as well as sumptuous villas with a private pool and roof terrace. With stunning views of the Chao Phraya River, the 39-room luxury retreat offers a spa, gym, library, and personal butler service. For the ultimate experience, dine or stay in one of four traditional Thai teakwood houses sourced by silk tycoon, Jim Thompson, and socialite owner, Connie Mangskau.
