1 With its lime­stone cliffs, crys­talline wa­ters and bu­colic charm, the Greek is­land of Zakyn­thos has long tempted tourists. And now OLEA ALL SUITE HO­TEL & SPA (left), a re­cent ar­rival on its north­east­ern coast, de­liv­ers ex­cep­tional de­sign to the Io­nian idyll. The ho­tel’s 93 sleek suites oc­cupy a series of white­washed blocks and seem­ingly float above wa­ter. Nat­u­ral woods, abun­dant green­ery and bam­boo di­viders en­hance the trop­i­cal mod­ernist am­bi­ence. Laze by the tran­quil pool, feast at the three restau­rants, or book in for a spa treat­ment with Mediter­ranean herbs. oleaall­suit­e­ho­tel.com 2 Lo­cated in Barcelona’s his­toric dis­trict, the glass-fronted new EDI­TION BARCELONA (above) acts as a mir­ror to the city’s Gothic ar­chi­tec­ture. Con­ceived by hote­lier ex­traor­di­naire Ian Schrager and Span­ish de­signer Lázaro Rosa-Vi­olán, the luxe lodge se­duces with its dou­ble-height lobby, sap­phire chan­de­liers and fur­ni­ture by Sal­vador Dalí and An­toni Gaudí. The 100 rooms boast wal­nut pan­elling, par­quet floors and white mar­ble bath­rooms. As with all Schrager prop­er­ties, there are vi­brant bars and eater­ies aplenty, in­clud­ing a rooftop wa­ter­ing hole with strik­ing vis­tas. edi­tion­ho­tels.com
