An array of luxury hotels are shining the spotlight on previously untapped locations

01
The Newt

The Babylonstoren offshoot in the UK has chosen the location of Somerset as its base. Famed for its farm-to-fork hideaway in South Africa, the Babylonstoren is focusing on homegrown produce from its kitchen garden, dairy from Somerset cows and honey from local bees. Guests can enjoy trips to the spa; fishing, falcony and horseback riding adventures and a trip to the Cyder Press and Cyder Cellar.

The Fife Arms

We know that HM The Queen has long been a fan of Braemar, now the rest of the world is sure to flock to the Scottish countryside with the launch of The Fife Arms. The former Victorian coaching set within the Cairngorms National Park has been turned into an art-filled oasis. However, as striking at the bespoke installations are, you’re sure to be swept away by the sumptuous suites, the dining room that celebrates wood-fire cooking and of course, the scenery.

Featuring 44 suites and an exclusive four-bedroom villa, the One&Only is sure to be the hottest staycay in Asia. You will be able to relax in the spa, dine at one of the resorts three restaurants or relax in the Beach Club. Or you can play a round of golf at the nearby Els Club Desaru Coast course.
