From fusing transformative design with philanthropic principles on a pristine Thai beach, to capturing the spiritual zeitgeist of Southern California, Design Hotels™ presents six new members that are reshaping the global hospitality landscape.
A holistic approach to hospitality defines Twelve Senses Retreat, a serene bolthole in the cinematic coastal city of Encinitas that meaningfully connects with the local community of artisans and healers. Heading to the paradisiacal beaches of Thailand’s Phang Nga Province and Iniala Beach House offers a world of cutting-edge design, sublime luxury, and blissful seclusion. Set amid the heritage buildings of Penang’s sun-bleached capital, The Prestige emerges as a bold architectural landmark rendered from concrete, brick, aluminum, glass, and steel. Another storied city is home to Design Hotels’™ first member in Scotland, Market Street. Ideally poised between Edinburgh’s Old Town and New Town, the 98-room hotel is a stylish gateway to this forward-thinking capital with its strong roots in the past. Palma’s El Llorenç Parc de la Mar is another property that bridges the divide between past and present with a design that reflects both contemporary Mallorcan influences and traditional Moorish motifs. In the heart of the dramatic Dolomites, Schgaguler Hotel’s timeless aesthetic perfectly complements the hotel’s breathtaking natural surroundings.
