Oberoi Vanyavilas, in Rajasthan (India)
An spectacular hotel set in the middle of the jungle, near the Tiger Reserve of Rathanbhore. A resort with incredible surroundings near the water where you will find 25 room luxury tents, luxury bathrooms, private open air areas, and a solarium which contrasts with the vegetation of the jungle. Also, the hotel has an Spa set over a lake, clear blue pools and a patio with fountains, perfect to relax after a day out looking for tigers in the Reserve.

Castello di Casole, in Siena (Italy)
A historical remodeled building, in a location as wonderful as the Tuscany Mountains. Beyond every sort of luxury, it is a memorable lodging thanks to the decoration and art present in its exclusive rooms and the unique cuisine of its restaurant.

montana

Triple Creek Ranch, in Montana (United States)
Set among the pines near Trapper Pike, the highest mountain in western Montana, this idyllic refuge is a small resort with 30 wooden rooms and a clear ranch feel, which belongs to the Relais & Chateau chain. This wonderful retreat includes accommodations such as the pool set to cozy temperatures with views over the snowy mountain, a prestigious restaurant and an excellent wine cellar.

sudafrica

Singita Sabi Sand, in Kruger (South Africa)
This magnificent resort has a spectacular offer: luxury cabins in the heart of Africa. A very attractive option for those interested in learning about the singularities of the fauna of the most unknown continent. Almost a century after hosting its guests is an impressive introduction for us.

cuzco

Belmond Palabio Nazaranes, in Cuzco (Peru)
A spectacular establishment set in a quiet plaza close to the town’s main square in Cuzco. The hotel occupies and old stone palace and convent reformed for its guests. Beyond its architecture, and location, its excellent service, gardens and pool constitute our final hotel proposal for 2015.

Make the most of 2016 to visit what you missed in 2015.
