Travelweek São Paulo
Greetings from São Paulo, the largest city in Brazil, where I’m here attending Travelweek São Paul recently acquired by Reed Exhibitions and is part of the International Luxury Travel Market (ILTM) portfolio. Here’s some of the latest luxury news that will make you want to dust off your passport and head to one of these fabulous places:
The new Li Sereno hotel on Lake Como, Italy by the owners of Le Sereno, St. Barts and designed by the amazing Patricia Urquiola (she designed Mandarin Oriental Barcelona) will open next summer. I’ve seen the photos, but unfortunately not allowed to share just yet. but trust me, it’s gorgeous.
The new Reefs hotel on Anguilla is being built by the owners of CuisinArt Resort, Anguilla (opening 2016); Portrait Firenze is now open in Florence, Italy (This Ferragamo owned hotel is perfect for families and let me tell you it’s amazing – I stayed in a suite pre-opening last summer);
The iconic Buddha Bar is now into hotels with its new hotel in Paris (think Shanghai in the 30’s in Paris – a trip within a trip);
The 35 villa Brando Hotel will be opening in French Polynesia in July (Marlon Brando’s very own secluded island paradise on French Polynesia’s breathtakingly beautiful private island of Tetiaroa);
The Le Barthelemy Hotel will open on St. Barts in December; Rosewood London is testing out new perks for hotel guests which I’m not allowed to reveal, but trust me, 007 would think it’s as cool as the Tony Chi interiors;
Budding writers, you’ll will love knowing F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote his novels, Tender is the Night and the Great Gatsby while staying at Hotel Belles Rives on the Cote d’Azur where you too might find your inspiration.
