The Beresheet Hotel camouflages itself amongst the breathtakingly primeval landscapes of the Negev Desert — a nearly tangible stillness hanging in the fresh, crisp air. Do you have a favorite desert hotel? (📷: robertoderosa📍: Beresheet Hotel)
Villa Chameleon, located in the lush coastal village of Buwit in Bali, blurs the boundaries between natural and built environments, almost resembling a house long-forgotten in the jungle. As is Balinese custom, each pavilion is meant to accommodate a different function; all communal spaces are kept open towards the elements, while private areas are closable. The buildings follow the contour and topography of the land, providing ample vantage points out over the river below. (📷: @daniel.koh 📍: Bali, Indonesia)

Nestled between pristine beaches and lush garden landscapes, @shangrilaabudhabi is a one-of-a-kind oasis in the heart of the bustling UAE capital. Designed in a classic Arabesque style, the hotel's 213 rooms, 161 apartments and 7 bars and restaurants exude a quintessential Arabic flair, from the traditionally arched doorways to the vibrant color schemes to the winding waterways that connect various parts of the hotel property — yes, you heard that right, guests travel by abra (a traditional Arabic boat) to get to and from the hotel's facilities. Travel tip: Be sure to indulge in a "Four Hands Harmonizing Massage" at CHI, The Spa, where the hands of skilled therapists will lull you into a state of complete calm and relaxation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Looking for a holistic approach to your next vacation? If so, you may want to check out Keemala in Phuket, Thailand, where you can pair a swim in your private pool villa with a healing spa experience that will focus on re-aligning your energies — amongst many other energy-boosting options. Enjoy a meal of healthy cuisine at Mala Restaurant, where dishes consist only of raw, macrobiotic, and slow cooked foods— and be sure to ask for the story behind the hotel’s architecture, as it dates back centuries and involves four distinct clans that played a huge role in the area's history.

Take a break from exploring the golden cliffs, whitewashed villages, and relaxing beaches of Algarve and take a note from the locals during your stay at the Casa Mae Lagos.

Bundle up and experience the magic of snowy winter days at Blantyre — a Tudor-style mansion-and-estate-turned-elegant-resort built in 1902, ideally situated in the Berkshires between Boston and New York. Escape the chill in the air with a cup of hot chocolate upon arrival, or if you're feeling a bit more indulgent, try out the resort's "Winter Bliss Package" — designed to warm your soul and rejuvenate your senses, the package gets you a s’mores kit, luxurious spa offerings, and a hearty breakfast for two.

Resting on the threshold of Jimbaran Bay, the luxurious Belmond Jimbaran Puri offers little slices of Balinese paradise at every turn.

As the sun beautifully sets over the Indian Ocean, hundreds of dolphins are likely flipping and frolicking near the shores of the Four Seasons Resort Maldives at Kuda Huraa.

Lose track of time beneath art-laden ceilings of The Venetian — a lavish Las Vegas resort offering rooms and suites nearly twice the average size of other hotel accommodations in the area. Its regal, 120,000-sq-ft casino has an impressive marble floor and hand-painted ceiling frescoes, with high-end shopping and dining at the nearby Grand Canal Shoppes only a stone's throw away. Travel tip: The airy Italianate mall offers gondola rides where visitors can float through the canals while being serenaded by mezzo-sopranos — hop on board and forget you're actually in the desert for just a moment.
