Andronis Luxury Suites, located on the beautiful Greek island of Santorini, is a stunning property renowned for its tranquillity and unique sense of elegance.
“There is not another place on earth this amazing,” one TripAdvisor reviewer said.

3. Baros Maldives, Baros Island, Maldives
The Baros Maldives luxury hotel resort is a small coral island ringed by a sandy beach just 25 minutes by speedboat from Maldives International Airport.
With its tastefully designed Beach and Water Villas, Baros Maldives, is a dream-come-true tropical island!

4. Riad Kheirredine, Marrakech, Morocco
Last day at the Riad Kheirredine where we have met so many friendly staff members who feel more like friends than staff. Think I’m also sick from drinking tap water tea with the locals, eating saffron chicken and downing space cake that was more like a paste in a bag

“Cool courtyards and sun-drenched roof terraces await you. You have a remarkable level of privacy.”
It offers unparalleled service and personal attention, wrapped up in a blend of Moroccan architecture and contemporary Italian design.
5. The Oberoi, Mauritius
I read yesterday that @theoberoimauritius has been voted by @tripadvisor as having the best swimming pool in the world. We stayed here for our honeymoon 11 years ago and were totally blown away, what an incredible hotel. The villas, the pool, the food, the service was to die for. When we went back to Mauritius last year we popped in to have a wander around because we were staying a few hotels away and it looked as fabulous as ever. I would definitely recommend this gorgeous hotel if you are looking for total luxury and to just totally chill out
