This week’s hotlist is all about feeling good, eating well, and trying something new. We’ve got the best cars to the best facial treatments to the best hotels for you to try.
They’re that good, they’ll be added to your bookmarked list of favourites, we promise. Whether you stay in the UK and experience a Maserati, or head to our latest favourite hotel Borgo Santo Pietro, you will keep your memories and your Instagram feed stocked up.
DRIVE THIS Maserati Ghibli
For automotive pleasures, the Maserati takes the biscuit. Sleek, sexy, and quite debonair, the Maserati Ghibli is a drive we are most definitely in favour of. With luxurious interiors designed by Zegna and an accompanying sound system to glorify any road trip playlist, this car is fast, nimble, sexy, capacious, luxurious, and capable all at once. A Goddess car if you will.
Pack your Globetrotter, grab your Finlay’s and off you drive into the sunset.
STAY HERE Borgo Santo Pietro
This idyllic 20 bedroom Tuscan Relais & Châteaux hotel is set in a 270-acre organic farm, with vineyards and a 13-acre beautifully manicured gardens.
Grab a book and an Aperol Spritz and lounge in the acres of spectacular groomed gardens, or head over to the monthly resident artist on hand to teach you to draw or paint, indulge in the spa offering beyond relaxing treatments using their own range of Seed to Skin treatments, experience floristry classes in the florist’s cottage hidden away amongst the gardens, or grab a classic red Vespa and journey with a pre-programmed satellite navigator, so that if the local beauty lures you off-track you’ll soon find your way back.
Poolside perhaps? Wicker and wood sunloungers, canvas parasols and a pool bar surrounding a freshwater infinity pool. Following which you can only head to our favourite in-house restaurant Meo Modo for true Tuscan fare with all ingredients sourced from the farm. See you there next month!
EAT HERE Santo Mare, Marylebone, London
Porto Cervo made it to Marylebone with Santo Mare, the brainchild of young restaurateur, Andrea Reitano, specialising in Italian seafood sourced from day boats that sail through the Tyrrhenian Sea. Linguine with Langoustines and Mint and salt-crusted seabass for two are two classic and standout dishes. Alternatively, choose your catch of the day directly from the restaurant window. But it’s the table side preparation of the Tiramisu, layered freshly to serve, that steals the show.
This 100-seater restaurant is a welcomed addition to Marylebone with a large summer terrace ideal to enjoy during the summer months.
BOOK THIS 58 Lifestyle at Allbright Mayfair
We already love AllBright, and even more so the newly opened townhouse building bang in the middle of Mayfair on Maddox Street. A 5-storey mecca for amazing women to meet and connect, with restaurants, meeting rooms, dedicated spaces for working, mentoring and coaching, a mega roof terrace, loft-style events space, events programme and so much more.
Outside of all this, it could be the second floor dedicated to wellbeing that’s a favourite, a timeout from all the work, equipped with fitness studio, hair and beauty salon and holistic wellness rooms, all curated by 58 Lifestyle founder Michal Cohen-Sagi.
Top recommendation? Book in with Betsabe (aka Betty) for a complete, holistic, energy healing treatment. Rid yourself of any stress, anxiety, pain, insomnia, subconscious beliefs in an hour with cosmetic rejuvenation acupuncture. Yes, we said it, in one hour, Betty will transform your body and mind, gently guiding you on an immersive journey, which includes emotional release and a rebalance of meridians. It feels as good as it sounds, leaving you calm, collected and ready to conquer the AllBright world.
