Itz’ana, Belize

At the end of the year, Itz’ana will open its doors to guests. It’s located in Palencia, just miles from one of the healthiest and largest reef systems in the world. We recommend a stay in the two-bedroom beach villa. It has a beachfront deck with a private plunge pool that looks out onto the sandy beach and sea beyond.

Andronis Luxury Suites, Greece

The Andronis Suites offer understated elegance in the distinct white-washed architecture of the Cyclades on Santorini’s cliffside in Oia’s main pedestrian thoroughfare. The picture-perfect setting is Grecian romance and luxury at its finest. We recommend a stay at the Sunset Villa Aristotelis. Located on Milostufili hill, just one minute away from the main hotel, it was personally designed by Andronis Miltiadis and features an infinity pool and terrace that looks out to the Aegean Seal.
