If you happen to pass by the 88 Thanon Witthayu street, you won’t be able to miss this curvilinear architecture, the Central Embassy. Attached to it is the Park Hyatt Hotel located at the upper 24 floors of the building. The hotel provides an elegant space playing with neutral tones with fluid interiors to accent the space. The environment is a breather in contrast to the bustling Bangkok street outside.

Dine in at any one of their three restaurants serving an array of Asian and Western dishes. WGSN recommends to check out the Penthouse Bar and Grill which you can have a stunning view of the city in a 192o’s style set up.

3. Doctor Manzana, València

At first glance, you would think this turquoise, purple and salmon pink store is a cafe or perhaps a beauty store but it’s actually a tech accessories and repair shop. Doctor Manzana has a very inviting colour scheme, thanks to Spanish design studio Masquespacio. The colours aren’t chosen cos they’re just nice but the hues will be very welcoming to specific groups of people making it their happy place – the salmon pink for the fashionistas and purple for the tech lovers.

The steel finishes and plastic curtain/divider adds a nice touch to the whole space breaking the sweet colours with a raw element, it kind of reminds us of a laboratory. They’ve got some workshops you can join too – ‘Doctor Workshop’ a space in the store to host talks and you can also recreate their aesthetics in your home by purchasing their ‘Doctor’s Workshop High Stools’.

Beta presents itself in a Grecian atmosphere marrying rustic, Hellenic charm with modern mid-century decors. The bar offers a spacious drinking and dining experience with the natural light emitting from the vast windows. Opened by Chef Peter Conistis, a pioneer of Modern Greek cuisines, Beta is Chef Peter’s second project after his successful restaurant, Alpha in 2013 which is located just downstairs of the bar.

Guests can expect plenty of delicious food like zucchini blossom and scallop loukoumades, to octopus souvlaki skewer, to fried chickpeas and spice roasted chicken wings. Don’t forget to ask for the ‘Spartan Rose’ in their cocktail menu, it’s a zesty combination of vodka, liqueur d’apricot, rose syrup and fresh pink grapefruit juice.

Skip the fancy hotels and head to this tropical escapist getaway, The Other Side. Every corner you turn at this Caribbean resort all you see is nothing but a breathtaking view of the ocean surrounding and the resort’s beautiful interior. Here, it’s all about having the best vacay that you deserve away from the crowd.

It’s a small scale luxury resort as they only have seven huts and three of them are your sleeping grounds and the other four are communal spaces for eating, drinking, playing and reading. They’ve got plenty of activities you can do like relaxing on deserted beaches, exploring caves, paddle boarding, and surfing. Apart from that, this place believes in sustainability so the food here is prepared with ingredients grown in the own garden on site and they use solar energy to fuel the luxury tents. Neat!
