Summer is fading, but the longing for faraway destinations remains. That's why we looked for seven design hotels around the world, so that at least the eyes can go on a trip around the world.

Eden Rock, St Barths

Brudnozki meets Caribbean

The well-known family hotel Eden Rock is located in legendary St Barths. After an extensive renovation, guests can expect a mix of eras and a true bonfire for the senses in the interior. The interior designed by the Swedish designer Martin Brudnizki shows an unconventional but inviting design. The furniture was selected with great attention to detail, including antiques and handicrafts from local workshops.

The Mark, New York

New York in the Twenties

Not 2020, but 1920 is what you feel like when you check into The Mark Hotel in New York. The iconic boutique hotel combines avant-garde style with the Art Deco style of its founding era. Several star designers collaborated on the renovation and interior design. The iconic black and white stripes by Jaques Grange stand out, as does the sofa by Paul Matheim. The mix of styles strikes a chord with the times, as the hotel was recently named the best city hotel in the United States.

Amanpuri, Phuket

Luxury retreat in Thailand

With the Amanpuri in Thailand, designer Ed Tuttle created a place of peace for every traveler. The buildings, reminiscent of temples, are inspired by the Ayutthaya period. Overlooking the Andaman Sea, the resort nestles in a former coconut plantation and promises every guest relaxation and luxury amidst breathtaking scenery.

Cotton House, Mustique

A gem in colonial style

The Cotton House Mustique on the luxury island of Mustique in the Grenadines brings the colonial style of the sixties to life. The interior, which was selected by star designer Tristan Auer, is reminiscent of the style of former stage designer and fashion designer Oliver Messel. The renowned interior is also a credit to the guests. The island is popular with nobility and stars alike, as it promises undisturbed time out in distinguished style.

Dream in marble and turquoise

The COMO Metropolitan Miami Beach welcomes guests in typical Miami style with lots of marble, fresh turquoise and chrome finishes. Interior designer Paola Navone has incorporated trinkets from the Art Deco era alongside the modern Miami style to keep the roots of the 1930s-built hotel contemporary. A far highlight awaits guests at the gin bar, where a selection of 40 different gins is on offer.

L'Apogée, France

Peak Design at the highest point of Le Jardin Alpin

In the midst of the French Alps, L'Apogée nestles between the imposing mountains. It's not just the private access to the Trois Vallées ski area that attracts guests, but also the interiors by India Mahdavi and Joseph Dirand. The distinctive style of the two star designers breathes soul and sensuality into the noble ski resort, while the location with a view over the village of Courchevel rounds off the overall noble impression.

The Lanesborough, London

Living like the Queen

Built on the former seat of Viscount Lanesborough, the Lanesborough Hotel is a must-visit for all lovers of Regency style. The hotel offers views of Buckingham Palace, which adds to the charm of the princely interior. The artworks on the walls are original from the 18th century. The selection of the works and the interior was made by the artist Alberto Pinto. The highlight of the suites is the Regency Suite, which is kept in the style of the classic Jane Austin novels.
