india

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.

toscana

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.

SPAIN’S MOST EXTRAORDINARY BEACHES

The Spanish coast harbors unusual landscapes that drive us to places we never expected. Today we want to show you some of the most fascinating beaches in our country, trips worth taking any time of the year.

sakoneta

Sakoneta Beach, Guipúzcoa, País Vasco. Striking for its landscape drawn over time with the soft going and coming waves. Located at the outsides of the city of San Sebastian, this place remains in a wild state that makes it special.

charco-azul

Charco Azul Beach, El Hierro, Canary Islands. One of the most spectacular swimming areas located on the smallest of the Canary Islands, it consists of two natural pools in a cluster of caves that point directly to the wild Atlantic Ocean. Turquoise waters and the ocean’s surrounding sound will not leave you indifferent!

ses-illetes

Ses Illetes Beach, Formentera, Balearic Islands. This tongue of land that enters the sea almost touching s’Espalmador Island, is a curious picture of calm waters on one side, and waves on the other.

las-catedrales

Catedrales (Cathedrals) Beach, Lugo, Galicia. Its peculiar rock formation has earned to its magnificent nickname and is considered one of the most amazing beaches in the world. Its caves and crannies can only be crossed until noon, because after that the tide and the ocean take back this natural temple.

gulpiyuri

Gulpiyuri Beach, Asturias. This tiny beach it has been declared Natural Monument, is so special because the sea reaches her through a tunnel between rock walls.

TUMBAO , VALDEVAQUEROS, TARIFA

As summer arrives to Tarifa, it is definitely the time head for its beach bars, chill outs, and sunsets with entertaining background music. Today we want to introduce you to a renowed hangout in Tarifa, Tumbao, an iconic place envolved in a relaxed atmosphere and located on the spectacular beach of Valdevaqueros.

Tumbao_Tarifa

Run by the three Whaley brothers and located on Valdevaqueros Beach Bar since 2010, Tumbao is considered by many as the ideal place to relax ‘tumbao’ (lying) on the lawn next to the beach, enjoying a refreshing mojito or beer, while watching the flying kites of those kitesurfing.

Relax_Tumbao

Although their mojitos of different flavours are excellent, you cannot leave Tarifa without trying one of its burgers. The magic of this place is also enhanced with the spontaneous or planned concerts which bring a lot of interesting and different folks to this place.

Because a full beach day in Tarifa starts early and ends late, you better not leave without lying at Tumbao.
