Luxury hotels in Rajasthan, India

No place in India exemplifies the spirit of monarchy and the splendor of royalty better than the state of Rajasthan. The very name contains royalty: Raja translates to “king” and sthan refers to “place” in Hindi and other Indian languages. When the British left India, there were about two dozen princely states in the region, which merged into the new Union of India, along with other princedoms around the country. The erstwhile royalty was allowed to retain their properties and was granted an...

The 5-Diamond Resorts of Mexico

The AAA 5-Diamond Awards are, in most respects, the most exclusive listings out there for North American hotels and resorts. There's a thorough vetting and inspection process the properties go through and a long checklist of amenities that need to be in place to qualify. Unlike a membership organization like Leading Hotels of the World, this is not a paid reservation system for hotels. The AAA inspectors are about as impartial as you can get. If you've ever heard the phrase "true 5-star hotel,...

Montage Los Cabos is Their First Outside the USA

That sitting area pictured above is at one of the swimming pools at Montage Los Cabos, one of the newest luxury resorts to open in the corridor between the two anchor cities of the region. There's another pool with lounge chairs and daybeds below that, then a lovely crescent beach in a small bay that's a rarity in these parts. You can actually walk right in from shore and go for a swim. No red beach flags or giant crashing waves. Opened in 2018, this is the first Mexican location for Montage, ...

Our Most Popular Luxury Hotel Reviews

  Which luxury hotels in Latin America are readers clicking on the most? We just pulled up a report of our top-100 pages by traffic this year and there are a surprising number of luxury boutique hotels on the list. Of course there's nothing even slightly scientific about this: what's popular on our site is not necessarily a reflection of the most popular luxury hotels overall or "the best" in any objective sense. Our traffic to individual hotel reviews  can be driven by many things: a write-up...

Diamond-shaped timber pod hotel lets you vacation outside of the box

Years ago, the modular Tetra Shed took the design world by storm with its beautiful angular design. Today, the award-winning concept has been reborn as a full-scale hotel. Using David Ajasa-Adekunle’s original shed concept as a guide, Studio X designed the futuristic Tetra Hotel as a series of autonomous diamond-shaped timber pods set in a stunning landscape. The hotel design builds on the award-winning Tetra Shed concept, which was unveiled in 2011. At the time, the shed was created to provide...

The Hacienda Hotel Re-imagined: Chable Resort & Spa Outside Merida

Hacienda hotels in the Yucatan state of Mexico have normally followed a similar playbook, but Chablé Resort & Spa is a bold new addition that embraces modern design in the guest quarters. It's not that Chablé has ignored the roots of its location in the land where sisal fiber production once created an empire built on rope-making. The 18th-century grounds near Mérida retain the original stone wall, the main building still has the same original structure and façade, and one restaurant is housed...

A Decade Later, Palacio Duhau Park Hyatt Shines Bright in Buenos Aires

Once upon a time, before Luxury Latin America had gone live, yours truly was the very first guest to check into the Palacio Duhau Park Hyatt when it opened to guests in Buenos Aires. There were cameras with flashes going off, TV crews recording video, and Hyatt executives with a "C" on their business card. Reporters were asking me questions in that Italian-lilt Spanish I could barely understand. My wife and I just showed up in a taxi and expected the usual uneventful check-in. We had no idea i...

Want to know which are the most highly regarded luxury hotels and resorts in South America? We've got some rare convergence with the Conde Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards---if we just stick with the least influenced region. Their picks match up well with our South America luxury reviews. I'm no fan of the supposed "readers' polls" put out by the big travel magazines.

Where to stay in Arequipa, Peru?

The Peruvian city of Arequipa is one of those cities that might get overlooked in favor of Machu Picchu or Lima, but this city of nearly one million has its own unique draws. Breathtaking architecture and views of the three volcanoes [caption id="attachment_6557" align="alignleft" width="300"] Casa Andina[/caption] that surround it might not be enough for your tastes, but this city is also part of the Peruvian food boom that is taking Latin America by storm, so if grandiose landscapes don't im...

Celebrity Spotting at Hotel Del Coronado

Background: My friends and I were taking a day trip to San Diego. We decided to hit up the beach at Coronado and walk around the grounds of the Hotel Del Coronado.

One More Reason to Visit Argentina this Year

Good news for luxury travelers on their way to the land of beef and vino, thanks to new president Mauricio Macri, Argentine hotels just got a tiny bit cheaper. Macri signed an executive order last September 27, in honor of World Tourism Day, that called for expanded implementation of previous 2001 legislation that offered tourists a refund on Value-Added Tax (VAT) for goods and services purchased in Argentina. VAT in Argentina is higher than almost every one of its southern neighbors, adding a...
