Featured Destinations

Le Barthélemy Hotel & Spa

St. Barths knows luxury, but Le Barthelemy perfected it. It’s not hard to imagine how being steps from crystal blue waters set alongside rolling lush green hills would make for a deeply memorable Carribean experience, but even better is coming home to a resort meticulously designed around your comfort. Located on a perfect crescent bay, with a 600 foot beachfront, this shining beacon of a hotel is windswept in light soothing colors, ensuring harmony with the landscape and turquoise blue sea.

Park Gstaad

Located just 5 minutes from the pedestrian center of Gstaad, this Five Star Chalet style hotel embodies the sophisticated yet relaxed style of this picturesque world-renowned mountain village. The Park Gstaad was the first luxury hotel built in Gstaad, and it has deliberately adopted a mindful approach to the use of local resources and stands out through its authentic and all-encompassing well-being concepts.

Grand Powers

Located in the heart of the Parisian Golden Triangle, yet safely tucked away on a quiet street, Hotel Grand Powers stands as the premiere Five Star Boutique hotel choice on the Right Bank. After a $20 million complete renovation, the design beautifully blends the modern traits of a contemporary hotel with the elegance of a traditional Haussmann style building.
