So pack your Louis Vuitton suitcase, charter your private jet and prepare for a luxurious summer getaway.
Glamorous Amalfi Coast Palazzo Sasso
It's a dramatic ascension of hairpin turns to the hilltop town of Ravello, one of the most beautiful places on earth.
Once you arrive at the Palazzo Sasso, there will be little doubt why you came. Just south of Amalfi and Positano, the hotel is perched on one of the most dramatic hillsides on the Amalfi, with views that have captivated aristocrats and pop icons for more than five centuries.
This palazzo-style tower peers distinguishably over the Mediterranean with Moorish balconies and storybook windows. An ornate lobby with charming front-desk staff acts like a personal concierge at a private villa. The grassy pool area and formal gardens are terraced down the property, arranged with loungers of fashionable travelers sipping fruit-infused water.
The scenery changes a guest's perspective, replacing the worries of the world with a 220-degree ocean view surprisingly well priced from €330 during high season.
Parisian Luxury Escape Hotel Tremoille
Located in the exclusive 8th arrondissement between Avenue George V and Avenue Montaigne, the Beaux-Arts hotel is set in one of Paris' chicest areas surrounded by designer boutiques and celebrity neighbors.
