The hype has subsided, but for those who didn’t get enough eating, praying, and loving in last time around, Design Hotels™ has prepared a second helping of all three! We may not have the looks of Julia Roberts and be able to jet off on an around-the-world jaunt, but Design Hotels’ ‘Eat, Pray, Love Part Two’ promotion gives travelers a good place to start. These hotels offer not only culinary delights, intense spiritual offerings and extraordinary romance, but also a special discounted room rate valid through October 31.
For foodies, Hotel Sezz Saint-Tropez, a glamorous resort on the French Riviera, offers Provencal dishes from Chef Pierre Gagnaire. The team’s culinary offerings also include a specially prepared picnic basket which can be taken to the nearby beach to enjoy. Alternatively, Vigilius Mountain Resort, a secluded sanctuary nestled in the Italian Alps, serves fresh, locally sourced, and expertly prepared cuisine.
Those looking for spiritual offerings to restore body and soul need look no further than Mamilla Hotel from worldrenowned architect Moshe Safdie that is located directly at the old town in Jerusalem – the birthplace to three of the world’s most important religions. As well as having a jaw-dropping location, this urban sanctuary houses a 1,000-square-meter Holistic Wellbeing Retreat with a gym, spa, yoga, meditation rooms and an organic bar.
To spruce up one’s love life The Met Hotel Thessaloniki, with its acclaimed modern art collection and spectacular rooftop pool with 360 degree city view, is certain to seduce. In contrast, Copperhill Mountain Lodge in Sweden, with its remote location near Mount Åreskutan, invites couples to bathe in its outdoor hot spring while taking in stunning views of the surrounding snowscapes.
