Beach Getaway

Amanera, Cabrera, Dominican Republic

Perched atop 60-foot cliffs at the western tip of Playa Grande beach, you will find Aman resorts’ newest hotel. Below are uninterrupted views (thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows everywhere) of the sea while behind are 2,170 acres of lush Caribbean jungle. Its two-bedroom Bay View Casa and 24 freestanding Casitas ‒ nestled in the protected rainforest surrounding it ‒ are modern and minimalist with high ceilings, warm wood and furnishings that are beautiful in their simplicity. And, that is just the tip of the heavenly iceberg: cue the luxury spa, beach-front golf course, outdoor infinity pool, world-class watersports, horseback trails, private island excursions, sleek terrace bar and three on-site restaurants. We could go on…

City Break

Rivertown Lodge, Hudson, USA

The once sleepy river town of Hudson ‒ just a two-hour train ride from Manhattan ‒ is fast becoming a cool retreat for creative New Yorkers and ‘Brooklynites’ thanks to a new spate of restaurants, bars and shops. So, it was only a matter of time before a boutique hotel opened its doors. Previously a motor inn (and the town’s cinema before that), this 27-room bolthole blends the old with the new; the mid-century with the Shaker. Think vintage, custom-built furniture juxtaposed with cast iron accents and Scandi-inspired boiled wool blankets. There’s also a brilliant little tavern behind the lobby, which serves carefully crafted cocktails and a restaurant headed up by Jean Adamson, chef-owner of Brooklyn’s Vinegar Hill House.

Country Escape

Inis Meain, Aran Islands, Ireland

Want to really get away from it all? This remote retreat ‒ on the smallest of the Aran Islands ‒ is the place to book. Somewhere between a Grand Designs project and a James Bond villain’s hideout, it is run by husband and wife team Ruairí and Thérèse de Blacam ‒ the first a renowned chef and the latter a host/interior designer. There are just five private suites, each with its own 10 metre expanse of glass that looks out onto the island and Galway Bay. Designed from wood, lime, stone and wool, they nod to their natural surroundings while also accommodating the modern traveller’s needs (thank you Philipe Starck bathrooms). Our favourite thing? The delicious Breakfast Box filled with freshly-baked bread, homemade muesli and the hotel’s very own eggs.
