With so many destinations and so little time to see them, pick from the best to maximize your travel experience. Just be careful, once you check in to some of these hotels you might not want to do any more exploring! Nevertheless, pack the appropriate travel fashion clothing and travel in style to your destination of choice.

1. Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, Maldives
The Conrad Maldives Rangali Island is an island getaway situated on the private island of Rangali. The hotel on Rangali is designed for a more intimate experience than its sister hotel on the neighbouring island of Rangalifinolhu, but both offer amazing luxury and leisure. Travel fashion is irrelevant here, but pack some comfortable warm weather clothes for your day excursions.
If unique experiences are something you value on your travels, then you would be amiss not visiting the Ithaa Undersea Restaurant, an all-glass dome 16 feet underwater which is converted to a two person hotel room on special occasions.
2. Fogo Island Inn, Newfoundland, Canada
Remotely situated on Fogo Island, the Fogo Island Inn is only reachable by small plane or ferry. It is well worth the visit, however, because the Inn is a masterpiece in minimalist functional design, and sits perfectly in tune with its jagged rocky surroundings.
Travel fashion tip: you will require some warm clothing as the weather can be quite chilly.
3. La Bandita Townhouse, Pienza, Tuscany, Italy
La Bandita Townhouse is an off shoot from the original La Bandita in the countryside. It feels as though you are part of the small town of Pienza, with all the local integration you could hope for.
Simple, classic, artisanal food is the order of the day in the townhouse kitchen. Just like La Bandita, the food is all about making you feel at home. Pack some functional travel fashion accessories for your stay, to help you discover the Tuscan lifestyle of Pienza.
4. Cheval Blanc Randheli, Maldives
Brilliant service, gorgeous design, and quality finishes are what give the Cheval Blanc Randheli the advantage, even over the natural beauty of its location. Each guest’s unique experience is designed by a team of “Alchemists,” who arrange all the details so you don’t have to. You are the explorer, you decide what to do, and your team makes it happen. Every holiday should be like this.
5. Rancho Valencia, Rancho Santa Fe, California
Rancho Valencia is a stunning Spanish villa-style hotel in Rancho Santa Fe, California, close to San Diego. Polo fields and horse ranches surround the hotel, and the Rancho Santa Fe Farms Golf Club is situated right on the doorstep. Split level villas with huge bathrooms are standard, all adorned in tasteful luxury. The restaurant menu is not to be glossed over either.
6. Manta Underwater Room, Indian Ocean, Zanzibar.
The Manta Underwater Room is part of The Manta Resort located on the island of Pemba in the Indian Ocean. The suite, however, is anchored offshore, and floats above and below the crystal clear seawater. Large windows provide a great view of the surrounding ocean, and at four meters below the surface there is plenty of light during the day.
7. The Chedi, Andermatt, Switzerland
The Chedi stands gloriously in the Swiss Alps, amongst little competition to note. It is the first new structure the region has seen in decades, and absolutely the most decadent. It will not be the last either, since there are plans for a further five hotels in the region, and the development of new ski runs is underway. From the outside, the hotel blends in well with the quaint Swiss village, but the interior sets it apart: lavish touches and detail lighting create an elegant and intimate environment, while the signature Japanese restaurant lends some palatial complexity to the monotonous Swiss food.
