Aman Kyoto
Located a short walk from the Golden Pavilion temple, the hotel is a place where nature steals the show. The hotel has 28 rooms in 6 pavilions, hidden amid towering trees, wild flowers, pathways of overgrown boulders and walls of carpeted moss. The heartbeat of the hotel is the spa where relaxation and healing happen in their purest forms with yoga sessions in the garden, treatments that tap into Japan’s natural apothecary and a traditional onsen, an indoor- outdoor hot spring.

La Réserve Paris
An insider’s address just off the Champs-Elysées, offers the quintessence of 19th century Parisian elegance. A world away from the traditional palace hotels, this urban mansion exudes the chic, private spirit of a Club as envisioned by famed interior designer Jacques Garcia. Everywhere, spacious rooms bathed in light feature beautiful marble fireplaces and old-fashioned ceilings. The dream of excellence continues at Le Gabriel, the in- house two-star gourmet restaurant, where the refinement of the cuisine transcends even that of the setting.
