MOST ROMANTIC

Zurich, Switzerland

Baur Au Lac - romantic boutique hotel in Zurich, Switzerland

 

Seductive, maybe not. But Baur au Lac, a Zurich institution since 1844, is where you take a relationship to the next level — a level where the Michelin-starred restaurant is designed by Pierre-Yves Rochon….

Stockholm, Sweden

c/o Haringe Slott - romantic boutique hotel in Stockholm, Sweden

 

If there were a Swedish version of Jay Gatsby’s mansion on the North Shore — grand, glittering, located within easy reach of the city — it would be Häringe Slott, where Greta Garbo and Josephine Baker once sipped martinis.

Mallorca, Spain

Cap Rocat - romantic boutique hotel in Mallorca, Spain

Corte Della Maesta

Lazio, Italy

Corte Della Maesta - romantic boutique hotel in Lazio, Italy

Rome, Italy

JK Place Roma - romantic boutique hotel in Rome, Italy

Santorini, Greece

Kirini Suites & Spa - romantic boutique hotel in Santorini, Greece

 

Yes, we keep coming back to Santorini, but why wouldn’t we? Kirini, a little bit more quiet and a little bit more serene than our other Santorini selections, certainly knows how to set the mood.

Paris, France

Marquis Faubourg Saint-Honore - romantic boutique hotel in Paris, France

Muhu Island, Estonia

Padaste Manor - romantic boutique hotel in Muhu Island, Estonia

 

While Tallinn is increasingly filled with cut-rate revelers on vodka cruises, Muhu Island is scenic, quiet, pastoral, largely untouched by the outside world, which makes Pädaste the ideal place to escape.

The Beaumont Hotel

London, England

The Beaumont Hotel - romantic boutique hotel in London, England

 

It’s a fine line in Mayfair to pull off poshness without stuffiness, but it’s a line the Beaumont treads with ease. If Art Deco is your idea of glamour, then you’re in seventh heaven here.

Villa Gallici

Aix-en-Provence, France

Villa Gallici - romantic boutique hotel in Aix-en-Provence, France

 

Just outside the city center, La Villa Gallici was created by three friends who, tired of lamenting Aix-en-Provence’s lack of a traditional country house hotel, took it upon themselves to create one, with delightfully excessive results.
