1. Das Central, Austria
It’s not a Bond film without a snow scene and Sam Mendes’s choice of location for Spectre is hard to beat.
2. Mosaic Palais Aziza, Morocco
Away from the manic energy of the Marrakech medina the Palmerie is the perfect place for a hotel. This elegant spot should be in your address book for instant relaxation.
3. The Goring, London
Happy 150th birthday to the Goring. A favourite of Mrs T and the Middletons, it’s had a facelift but remains a classic.
4. Mandarin Oriental, Bodrum
Bodrum in Turkey is the new St-Tropez. Not convinced? Next to the pool of the MO is the perfect spot to research this pressing issue.
