Caravan by Habitas Agafay, Morocco

The rocky beauty of Morocco's Agafay desert has long attracted travelers seeking a break from the sensual explosions of Marrakech. The Habitas group among the lunar dunes is a true luxury for the soul, as founders Oliver Ripley, Kfir Levy and Eduardo Castillo call it. Caravan by Habitas Agafay consists of 41 tents and lodgings, with private bathrooms - solar energy and eco-bathrooms. All accommodations embody elegant modesty with no minibars or televisions, just wooden floors and earthy cream and ocher tones reminiscent of regional architectural pathos.


Sommerro, Norway

Located on an elegant street in Frogner, one of Oslo's oldest neighborhoods, this 231-room hotel is housed in a landmark building from the 1930s. The former headquarters of the first city electric company. The eclectic interior is a decadent decoration of the original mix of art deco and subdued, functionalist details - from the beautiful wood paneling in one of the suites, the office of the former general manager, to the grand staircase in the lobby. Designed to be social for visitors and locals alike, the ground floor is full of lively restaurants and bars, and there's even a cinema and theatre.


W Costa Navarino, Greece

A drive through Messinia's olive-strewn countryside brings you to this 32-hectare coastal estate designed in the shape of a Greek coastal village. The first W hotel in Greece offers everything you'd expect from the famous hotel brand—poolside DJs, geometric pillows, a central infinity pool—plus a few extra doses of wellness, eco-consciousness, and exclusivity. The hotel comprises 246 beautiful and spectacular rooms spread throughout the property, some of which have access to the communal ground floor 90 meter swimming pool.


Comodo, Austria

Bad Gastein was once the most glamorous village in the Austrian Alps, known for its healing waters and elegant Belle Époque architecture. But when the golden age was over and hard times came, the glamor of Bad Gastein cooled. Cōmodo is part of a wave of hotels and restaurants that are pushing to restore its former glamour. A mid-century atmosphere flows throughout the former clinic and spa, with antique and custom-made furniture bathed in mountain light. The 70 rooms and suites are filled with custom wallpaper and carpeting, and most overlook the valley with spacious balconies.


Banyan Tree AlUla, Saudi Arabia

There's a good chance you won't even notice the accommodation while driving through the Ashar Valley. His villas are camouflaged, so to speak – their surfaces are textured like sand, and their canopies are shaped like bat wings to protect them from the sun. Light and spaciousness reign in the soothing minimalist villas, with shaded lounging areas and outdoor fireplaces; all set against the backdrop of the surrounding honey-colored rock formations, sculpted by wind and water over millennia.
