Schgaguler Hotel in South Tyrol
Firstly, the Schgaguler Hotel. This beautiful hotel is situated in the mountain village of Castelrotto near the Seiser Alm and the Val Gardena. The Schgaguler was built in 1986 and renovated in 2018. Above all it’s timeless, alpine style with reduced aesthetic creates an authentic sense of well-being. It’s truly beautiful. Today, the building is a simple and charming boutique hotel in the heart of the Dolomites. In short, it’s a definite bucket list destination.

Maison de la Luz, New Orleans
Palazzo Daniele, Puglia
Here is where minimalism meets majesty. Each of the 9 suites represent a timeless experience. It’s where contemporary art, 150 years of history, and design coexist with monastic décor, minimal furnishings, bare walls and vaulted frescos ceilings.
It has been reshaped by the Milanese duo Ludovica and Roberto Palomba. The property is inspired by the idea of absence. It is stripped back as much as possible while restoring historical features. There is also contemporary art all around the property. Artworks and minimalist designed furnitures are combined in all rooms. Art pieces become functional. Such as the light box of Simon D’Exea illuminating most of the rooms. Or the rain shower installation in a bathroom where the shower is replaced by an archaic source of water falling from a 6 meter high ceiling in a large basin designed by Andrea Sala. Additionally, you can learn so much more about the design here.
Travel to Proper Santa Monica, LA
Next is this gorgeous hotel. The property’s located along sun-drenched Wilshire Boulevard in Santa Monica. It’s within walking distance to the beach too. Each of the 271 rooms, suites and spaces are influenced by the ocean breezes and natural light. So, the interior design includes organic tones and textures of the local coastline. Santa Monica Proper marries the design of Kelly Wearstler with a 1920’s era- landmark building and new contemporary architecture. It is really beautiful. Plus! Guests can also take in the panoramic views from the only rooftop pool deck in Santa Monica. There are three dining options. Finally, guests can also indulge in a treatment in the first-ever Surya Ayurvedic Hotel Spa.
La Granja, Ibiza
Finally, we have La Granja. It’s set among Ibiza’s pastoral inlands and is run in collaboration with Friends of a Farmer. It’s an association devoted to art, crops and gardens. Furthermore the property doesn’t only embrace the heritage of the farmhouse. It also has a connection to the land, all the while honouring rustic simplicity. Not to mention growth and decay, modesty and transience. It includes a nine-bedroom farmhouse, a freestanding, two-bedroom guesthouse, a pool and kitchen. It’s peaceful and back to nature. To conclude, sustainability is at the heart of this place. And that’s something to be admired.
