Cool destinations

From top to bottom: Jeronimos hotel, Lisbon; Six Senses Zighy Bay, Oman; 9Hotel, Paris; Aji’a on Bosphorus, Istanbul.

Forget New Year resolutions (they’re only meant to be broken anyway); instead make holiday plans and add these cool hotels to your list. Design hotels genre is the in thing, even though I read somewhere Ian Schragger saying that they are passé and that he has moved on to the next big thing in hotels (we’ll find out soon). Personally I would rather stay in a decadent and obscenely luxurious Ritz Carlton or Raffles kind of hotel anytime, but you’ve gotta give it to the ‘design hotels’ for making the hotel industry more interesting than just butler service, chintzy furniture and carpets. Here’s some eye candy.
