Dharana at Shillim Estate Retreat and Spa, India
The Shillim retreat and spa sits right in the middle of the Sahyadri mountain range, not far from Mumbai. We spent a week soaking in the Ayurvedic principles the retreat has to offer, practicing yoga every morning at 6 am, or else cocooned inside a canopy with the rain overhead and the smell of forest in the air.
The hotel's 'Dharana' wellness programme heals you both inside and out, combining spa treatments with daily meditation and a detox diet. And from an eco perspective, the Shillim team plant millions of new trees in the nursery every year and are passionate about preserving the local environment.

Villa Persa, White Key Villas, Island of Spetses, Greece
This aristocratic estate is prestigiously positioned right above the cosmopolitan Old Harbor, where the heart of the island's nobility and historical tradition beats. Built as three separate volumes and spreading on various levels, the property rests majestically in a superbly manicured large garden, sheltered by tall trees, enjoying picturesque views of the harbor and the sea. Easy access to the sea from a natural rocky platform at a two-minute walk, as well as to the lively happenings of the Old Harbor, make this location unbeatable.

Château d’Audrieu, Normandie, France
An official historic monument, Chateau d'Audrieu offers the warm welcome of a family home. Take a trip back in time and relax in Normandy's lush countryside. With a rich history stretching back to the 18th century, Chateau d'Audrieu is a part historical monument, part grand hotel. Set amidst acres of manicured gardens and wooded parkland, this charming residence is the perfect place to experience the rhythms of château life.

La Granja, Ibiza
A 200-year-old farmhouse, marked by classical Iberian architecture with traces of Moorish influences, was converted into a members-only retreat of 9 suites and a private 2 bedroom guesthouse by Dreimeta Design studio led by Armin Fischer.
A boho farmhouse aesthetic of minimalist elegance permeates the boutique hotel in a medley of dark burnt wood, distressed wooden furniture, dark painted walls anchored with slabs of slate and stone. Mediterranean gardens surround the sprawling estate with stone terraces, an infinity pool, and an outdoor bar. Pared-down, yet luxurious, La Granja is ideal for those seeking a simpler, quieter way of life, surrounded by good food and company.

The Amaala Project, Saudi Arabia
Hidden in plain sight on Saudi Arabia’s northwestern coast, Amaala will be a place of self-transformation. Its three communities are easily accessible by air, road, and sea; and connected to the iconic marinas of the Mediterranean Sea, according to its official website.
The reefs on the Egyptian side of the Red Sea have been badly abused by mass tourism in recent years, so their preservation and conservation are paramount to the architects. Keep an eye out for the grand opening to be one of the first guests at this exclusive eco-friendly resort.
Cottages Antoinette, Champagne, France
For a truly rustic escape, set up camp at Cottages Antoinette. We went and stayed in the ecological wooden houses, all on stilts, in the heart of the Champagne countryside. The whole experience is almost meditative with views over the vineyards stretching as far as the eye can see. The decor is minimum and you're surrounded by glass walls, making the space feel light and spacious.
Building the cabins required little energy in the first place, and neither does running them daily. The whole ethos is based around energy efficiency and the sun shining on the bay window heats up the space quickly so you are nice and toasty inside. Plus, you can easily get there by train from Europe, cutting out the need to fly - a real bonus on the environmental front.
