KASBAH BAB OURIKA

KASBAH BAB OURIKA (link) Our next stop this year is to Morocco, where I got to explore different areas around Marrakech, a former imperial city in western Morocco. The city is home to many palaces, mosques, and gardens, but my first location was to the boutique hotel, Kasbah Bab Ourika. Situated 35 minutes from the Marrakech airport, the hotel is actually located in the Atlas Mountains, which separate the Mediterranean and Atlantic coastlines from the Sahara Desert. When I heard about it’s location, I already knew I would experiencing some amazing views. On the hilltop of the Ourika Valley, you can see down to vast groves of oli...

AMAN VENICE

AMAN VENICE (instagram) (link) My most recent trip to Venice was a feast for the eyes – from the hotel to the canals and the magic of the city, it was beautiful at every turn. Aman is one of the world’s most luxurious resorts, and their Venice property was amazing. Located at the Palazzo Papadopoli on the Grand Canal, the hotel is majestic and romantic (like Venice) with meticulous building details like gilded ceilings and leather wall coverings. Each room at the Aman Venice has original architecture from the palazzo’s heritage, making each one unique. It’s modern, minimal and refined all at the same time, and all the details...

HOTEL VILLA MAGNA

The hotel is beautifully decorated with elegant and luxurious details, and while its history has been long, its recent renovations has given the hotel a modern twist.

CIRAGAN PALACE KEMPINSKI

CIRAGAN PALACE KEMPINSKI (link) Istanbul’s hospitality and amazing architecture was a nice treat throughout my entire stay in Turkey, and to wrap things up, I ended my Turkish trip at Ciragan Palace Kempinski, the only palace and hotel on the Bosphorus. The hotel is reminiscent of a real Ottoman palace – it’s grand, ornate and the attention to detail is always present. I had a beautiful room that faced the Bosphorus with a balcony, and it was so lovely to watch the city as it awoke and slept (though it doesn’t seem to ever sleep!). The hotel however will execute a redesign project next year to create more experiences for gues...
