Hotel Unique - Sao Paulo, Brazil

Have you ever slept inside a piece of art work? Check in to the Hotel Unique and you’ll understand. Brazilian architect Ruy Ohtake is the genius behind the semicircular 6-floor building. So many design hotels are cool once you’re inside but from outside they often look like nothing special. Unique Hotel is a complete experience that starts even before you get inside. The lobby is a huge as the nave of a cathedral.

Four Seasons – Buenos Aires

Four Seasons is probably the most magnificent hotel you can find in the most beautiful city in South America: Buenos Aires. Difficult to compete with the prestige of an early 20th-century, French-style mansion located in La Recoleta district, basically one the best areas in town. You can walk around safely and enjoy the magic light, the high-end boutiques are only ten minutes walk and if you keep walking a few more minutes you can visit the Argentinian answer to the Parisian Père La Chaise: La Recoleta Cemetery, a strangely beautiful city inside the city.

The Mira Hotel - Hong Kong

A few months ago, I visited Hong Kong for the first time and stayed in one one the most incredible hotels in town: The Mira. First observation, it is extremely well located in Tsim Sha Tsui, you are directly in the heart of the action. Millions of restaurants, bars, boutiques and electronic stores -in case you feel like buying a ‘cheap’ unlocked iPhone. The subway station is across the road and if you just walk ten minutes you can catch the Star Ferry to get to the Hong Kong Island (the old part of the city) and by the way enjoy the stunning scenery of the tall buildings surrounded by green mountains.

The Aubrey - Santiago

The Aubrey is truly an urban retreat that lets one escape from the buzz of the city. It is a transformed space with 15 beautifully appointed en-suite bedrooms, each with a unique character and most with balconies and terraces.
