editor’s letter

IN MUCH THE SAME WAY that I wanted, as a little girl, to grow up and wear Chanel, I wanted to grow up and holiday at the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc. It seemed impossibly glamorous, almost a members-only club, where you had to be beautiful, but also rich and famous and cerebral, to be allowed to frolic by its swimming pool, the jewel in the crown of the French Riviera. So the first time I went, I felt very much like an outsider, a voyeur, pretending as if it was no big deal that I was (finally) here too, sipping lemonade in my flip-flops and trying desperately not to appear too excited. But it was difficult to contain: everything slowed down and took on a movie-like magic. People swimming in the…

ANTONIA QUIRKE Writer, Tinos (p136) ‘Casa Kimberly in Puerto Vallarta, on Mexico’s Pacific Coast, once the home of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. I lounged around reading Burton’s diaries and rewatching The Night of the Iguana to the sound of mariachi bands on the street.’ Antonia is a film critic and one of our contributing editors ARTEMIS COOPER Writer, House Call (p46) ‘The 16th-century Locanda San Vigilio is halfway down the eastern shore of Lake Garda, surrounded by olives and cypresses. My grandmother Diana Cooper described it as “a shrine of felicity”, and I still dream of its airy, quiet beauty.’ Artemis is a biographer whose subjects have included author Patrick Leigh Fermor LAUREN AND ANNAEL TOLILA Photographers, Where to Stay The Maybourne Riviera (p55) ‘One that is close to our hearts is Ka Bru…

word of mouth

THE SUSTAINABLE FASHIONISTA ESHITA KABRA-DAVIES Born in India, raised in Singapore and based in London, self-proclaimed ‘third-culture kid’ Kabra-Davies set up By Rotation in 2019. Coined the ‘Airbnb of fashion’, the world’s first social fashion rental app was inspired by a trip to Rajasthan, during which she witnessed the environmental impact of textile waste. Launches in Paris and Dublin will follow 2021’s London pop-ups. ‘This year, I’m excited about places where the shopping is rooted in local culture, such as Ubud in Bali. I love traditional Indonesian batik printing and find Balinese interiors – wood, bamboo, earthy ceramics, foliage – so calming. I’m such a fan of local designer Erika Pena’s ethically produced, goddess-like resort wear that I struck up a friendship with her, and she’s since exclusively listed a capsule collection…

the trends we’re tuning in to

LUXE ENDURANCE Ultra-running goes smart with the four-day, 120-mile Highland Kings ultra-marathon in April, with food by a Michelin-standard chef and routes that visit Argyll’s Minard Castle and the Dougarie Estate on Arran. It’s a similar idea with LeBlanq’s ‘joyride’ weekend tours, which pair cycling legends and top chefs: touring the Isle of Wight with Bradley Wiggins and being fed by Fat Duck alum Ashley Palmer-Watts., FAR-FLUNG DINING This will be a year when foodies look further afield for inspiration. Take Moscow, where Twins Garden and Artest have two fresh Michelin stars each. There will be a 50 Best Restaurants list for the Middle East and North Africa for the first time, and the Michelin guides will head to Serbia, where Belgrade’s grandly domed Salon 1905 will be sensing stars. CITY-SKI BREAKS With…

the hotels we’re eyeing up

HOTEL LA PALMA, CAPRI Sporting the sort of rooftop bar that Negroni Sbagliati were designed for, this was known to 19th-century travellers and artists as Locanda Pagano – the oldest hotel on the ever-chic Italian island. For its Oetker Collection (Le Bristol, Eden Rock) comeback in April, it’s been stripped down to 50 pearly white bedrooms, with its own bay-side beach club and a restaurant from Napoli-born Gennaro Esposito. SIX SENSES CRANS-MONTANA, SWITZERLAND The wellness-forward group’s 2022 plans read like a Coldplay world tour (Rome, Loire Valley, New York and Iceland), but this mountainside lair – its first in Switzerland, set to open in time for next season – stands out from the pack with its grandstand terrace and family-friendly treatments in a spa so cavernous you could yodel in it.

the destinations we’re excited about

KYUSHU, JAPAN New Kamome (‘Seagull’) bullet trains will be travelling to Nagasaki in 2022, putting a spotlight on the southern island of Kyushu – including the steaming geysers of Beppu, the turquoise bays of the Goto Islands off Nagasaki and sunny Kagoshima, with ferries to the subtropical and biodiverse Osumi Islands. NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE While some of Music City’s classic country venues celebrate birthdays this year – The Bluebird Cafe turns 40 – it is also experiencing a hotel boom. The first half of 2022 sees a biophilic 1 Hotel and a glassy Four Seasons arrive in the downtown SoBro neighbourhood, across the Cumberland River from trendier East Nashville. SUMBA, INDONESIA While Bali will be hoping for a more measured return of tourism, attention will also turn east to Sumba – an enchanting island of hilltop…
