Virgin Holidays + Hip Hotels, a partnership that identifies the world’s most amazing hotels and creates bespoke and luxury holidays, is celebrating two of its favourite retreats in the portfolio in May – as selected by the Virgin Holidays + Hip Hotels Travel Gurus for their discreet opulence.
Andrew Senior, Travel Guru, rates The House in Barbados as one of the world’s most amazing hotels, commenting: “This is a beachside version of the hippest downtown bolthole. And with only 34 rooms and suites, exclusivity is the name of the game.” Guests staying at The House compare the experience to staying in a private villa, except here there’s a complimentary champagne breakfast every morning and a personal ambassador to cater to every whim. From £1,859 for seven nights.
Indigo Pearl, nestled on Nai Yang Beach in Phuket is often heralded as one of the world’s most amazing hotels for its perfectly blended traditional Thai touches with moody blue lighting and a new Thai modernity. Lee McVeigh, Travel Guru, cites Indigo Pearl as a top pick, “The Black Ginger restaurant is spectacular. Imagine a traditional Thai building sitting on a lake with an all-black interior with stunning cobalt blue chandeliers”. Lee also recommends sampling an ‘Indigo Pearl’ –an amazing mix of rum, Cointreau, Blue Curacao and Frangelico topped off with pineapple juice. From £979 in summer for eight nights.
