Prepare to flood your feed with these post-worthy accommodations!
Keep those smartphones charged: A tiny bit of online gloating is a getaway’s guilty pleasure. From sultry Moroccan riads to Insta-worthy Scandi boltholes, the travel experts at Mr & Mrs Smith helped us handpick five hotels guaranteed to get your followers’ pulse racing. This time, we couldn’t resist venturing out a little further than our usual travel zone to give you the ultimate bucket list. Prepare your Pinterest boards, girls!
Maison La Minevertta – Sorrento, Italy
This cliff-clinging residence on the Gulf of Naples has spectacular views of Vesuvius and the pastel-hued jumble of Sorrento. You needn’t stray far from bed for that perfectly framed shot: all rooms are sea-facing, with floor-to-ceiling windows that let in that glorious Amalfi light. The decor expertly mixes modern and antique furnishings from near and far—a bold and bright backdrop for casual selfies.
Smith extra: A bottle of Prosecco on arrival for BlackSmith members; a glass of limoncello on arrival for SilverSmith and GoldSmith members.
Treehotel – Harads, Sweden
You might struggle to contain your unbridled glee at this sleek, stylish vision hidden away in a vast wilderness of spruce forests. Scramble up the ladders and floating walkways to six branch-hung dens, each more photogenic than the next. Breaks at this eco-friendly hotel are lo-fi, but mind-boggling mirror-cube, bird’s nest designs, and Scandinavian-chic interiors ensure you’re not exactly roughing it.
Smith extra: A free two-hour session in the tree sauna, including snacks.
El Fenn – Marrakech, Morocco
A creative haven in the medina, this labyrinthine riad has considered every creature comfort. There’s much here to admire: a sensually lit courtyard with a marble fountain and rose-petal-filled basin, daybed flanked pools in shaded courtyards and sweeping views of the Atlas Mountains from the Berber-tented rooftop. Bring an extra suitcase for tasselled babouches and ornate tableware from the little shop behind the lobby.
Smith extra: A bottle of wine; members staying three nights or more will receive a traditional hammam for two.
Keemala – Phuket, Thailand
Based loosely on tribe dwellings, these quirkily-cool villas nestle in glorious greenery just a short drive from Kamala Beach. If hard pressed, we’d pick the Bird’s Nest Villas, a cocoon of woven wood with a glass wall overlooking the rainforest, mountains, and Andaman Sea. For a taste of the resort’s holistic philosphy, book a healing spa ritual in one of eight treatment pods set in thatched huts among the trees.
Smith extra: A 90-minute Harmonising Massage for two in the spa.
Aenaon Villas – Santorini, Greece
All sugar-cube whites and sensual curves, Aenaon Villas is a pared down retreat with warm and attentive hosts. Perched between Imerovigli and Oia on the caldera’s highest and narrowest points, it has some of the best vistas on the island. Splash out on Villa Elidami, a peaceful hideaway with a private egg-shaped plunge pool that’s perfectly poised for sunset views.
Smith extra: A bottle of Santorini wine.
