Kimamaya by Odin: ultra stylish Japanese snow hotel

Kimamaya by Odin: ultra stylish Japanese snow hotel

Today, follow me in Niseko, Japan’s own St Moritz. It was called like that in the early 60’s, but this Japanese-Alpine-village still remained under the radar until the 90’s when it was re-discovered by Australian snowboarders, completely crazy about its famous snow or « champagne powder » as they said. Head to Niseko on the island of […]

Loft-like rooms  are very factory-ish and « raw aesthetic » […]

It is the first Oslo waterfront hotel, located on Tjuvholmen, […]

Bruno Mercadal, Directeur Général de l’Hôtel Royal-Riviera

Bruno Mercadal, Directeur Général de l’Hôtel Royal-Riviera

Il est gentil, c’est à dire qu’il aime les autres, qu’il aime ceux qu’il reçoit chez lui. Même si il peut avoir la dent très dure. Il est passionné; par la vie, par sa famille, par son métier. Il a de l’humour, beaucoup. Et n’hésite pas à transgresser parfois. Il aime écrire et déconner, il […]

Hotel Convent de la Missio, Mallorca

Hotel Convent de la Missio, Mallorca

My first stay in stylish Convent de la Missio was an enchantment. Tucked away down a lane in Palma’s busy old quarter, I found it after a short walk in the maze of narrow streets. I enter in this minimalist oasis of white and neutral shades through its opaque glass entrance and I was immediately […]

Singita Ebony Lodge

Singita Ebony Lodge

Colours of summer are always inspiring and seem to simply lift the spirit. The skies are filled with massive clouds and it contrasts strikingly with the green horizon. One thing that we’re no longer short of is water. All the pans are full to the brim, and puddles abound. The animals don’t have to look […]

Imanta resort Punta de Mita, jungle spirit on the beach

I had a dream: sleeping in the jungle, with the waves of a quiet ocean leaping the window of my room. I had a dream: being in harmony with nature and indulging myself and the one I love with great food, body treatments and long walks on a secluded beach. I had a dream: forgetting  […]

La Suite West. Black is black in London

This is a place where staying in London is like having the best of English atmosphere mixed to the coolest Japanese ambience. I love the latest creation of one of my favorite designer, the famed British designer Anouska Hempel (see her interview). La suite West is located on a quiet street on the edge of […]
