Come Fly With Me

If you're anything like me, you'll often find yourself daydreaming of travel destinations and then browsing online to find photos of hotels that match your dream.  Mr and Mrs Smith is my favourite website to do exactly that and on this occasion, they have something even more special to offer as their 'New for February' category is ready to be browsed!  Showcasing ten fresh new hotels that have now been added as members to the Smith collection, these hotels are where I'll be staying tonight (through the screen of my laptop, that is)..

Out of the ten new beautiful hotel destinations now available to be booked via Mr and Mrs Smith, based on design and aesthetic qualities there are a few that simply refuse to be ignored.  I've chosen three hotels that have caught my eye, all of which are from different countries around the globe and each have standout unique qualities that make them rise above their competitors! Anyway, I figured it'd only be fair to share their beauty - enjoy the daydreaming material!


AMAN CANAL GRANDE VENICE, 
Venice, Italy

Piano Nobile Lounge























Maddalena Stanza




Piano Nobile Dining Room

This is one of those rare occasions where I am quite literally lost for words, or at least I was for a good few seconds when first laying eyes on these images.  The hotel Aman Canal Grande in Venice is  the definition of grandeur with everything about it exuding opulence, however at no point is the high level of comfort compromised in its design.  Let's just say that if you were thinking of proposing to someone, let it be here and preferably in the Piano Nobile Lounge (especially as you receive a bottle of champagne on arrival by booking through Mr and Mrs Smith)!  Speaking of which, did you recognise the name of the 16th century hotel as George Clooney and Amal Alamudin's wedding venue?


BE TULUM, 
Tulum, Mexico


View from the Ocean Suite

Ocean Suite

Almost like clockwork, as soon as I started flicking through the photos of Be Tulum in Mexico's Tulum, the sky clouded over and the heavens opened to see rain (rather dramatically) fall down.  Could this be a sign?  If it were, it'd be a sign that I need to get myself over to the stylish hotel, tucked 'within a tropical rainforest' by the Caribbean Sea.  As far as destinations go, you'd be hard-pressed to find better than this.  According to Mr and Mrs Smith, incredible sunsets can be experienced when staying in the Ocean Suite and although the hotel is just a 'quick shuffle to the sand', Be Tulum boasts its very own infinity pool as well.  Ah, to have the best of both worlds..


SALCOMBE HARBOUR HOTEL,
Devon, United Kingdom

Estuary Glimpse Room with Juliette Balcony

The Jetty Restaurant













































You probably could have guessed I'd include a British hotel on my 'New for February' travel wish list seeing as I'm from the United Kingdom myself!  Devon is an area I've only visited a few times, however this hotel could certainly tempt me to visit a little more often.  The Salcombe Harbour Hotel has a 'yacht-club feel' and it'd be impossible for the fresh colour palette seen throughout not to lift your mood, although if in trouble there's always afternoon tea to save the day - this is Britain, after all - or, of course, the bespoke scented candle you'll be gifted when booking via Mr and Mrs Smith!

Although these three hotels have captured my attention, there are seven other hotel destinations that are new members to the Smith collection and are all guaranteed to take your breath away.  So, on that note.. I'll leave you to explore and experience your own sense of escapism!

With love,

Gabrielle x

  2. Talk of these beautiful destinations is totally kicking up my wanderlust. Tulum has been on my travel wishlist for awhile and maybe we will try to make it happen this year. I'd love to be there right now just to get away from the cold winter weather.

  19. I definitely remember that Aman Canal Grande hotel because our gondola man took us right in front of the hotel. That's cos I asked him where did George Clooney and Amal Alamudin got married? LOL!
    I've not been to the other two places. I should check it out. It's always great to day dream some times. It relaxes our mind. Or maybe that's what I think because I do that a lot =D
