On a continued quest to discover the unique, experiential and inspired, Design Hotels has explored the globe and hand-selected seven new member properties.
Complementing a curated portfolio of more than 300 member hotels, the new additions span three continents and introduce standout properties in much-loved destinations, from the cosmopolitan centre of Rome to the bustling heart of the Shibuya district in Tokyo.
Set in a restored 17th-century palazzo in the heart of Rome’s historic centre, Elizabeth Unique Hotel is a hive of sophisticated design and international allure. Nobu Hotel Shoreditch, located in London’s vibrant East End neighboorhood, celebrates the city’s multiculturalism and its status as a world culinary capital. Paris’ prestigious 7th arrondissement is home to Le Cinq Codet, housed within a 1930 former France Telecom building and masterfully restored by acclaimed designer Jean-Philippe Nuel.
Cugó Gran Macina Grand Harbour completes the European update. The hotel is set against a backdrop of historical fortress walls in the fortified city of Senglea in the southeastern region of the Mediterranean island of Malta.
Upping the ante in North America, Troutbeck — an enchanting private estate and country retreat — is situated in the bucolic hamlet of Amenia. The hotel is surrounded by 45 secluded acres of lush gardens, bisected by two flowing bodies of water, and is a hotspot for those craving a high-minded respite.
And finally, to Asia, where Hotel Bocage, in Thailand’s original high-society beach resort of Hua Hin, just 2.5 hours from Bangkok, stands as a reverent homage to both nature and structure.
