Discover the new Lou­vre out­post in Abu Dhabi, a de­sign fair with a dif­fer­ence in Monaco and a quar­tet of new bou­tique ho­tels in Paris. Plus, we show you how to get a taste of Lis­bon in Lon­don and ex­plore 2018’s hottest ski breaks

1HOTEL ANVIL Cool Brook­lyn de­sign prac­tice Stu­dio Tack has con­verted this for­mer 1950s ski mo­tel in Wy­oming, US, into a ho­tel that re­sem­bles a movie set from a western, but with all mod cons. Ev­ery room has a brass rain shower and sheep­skin slip­pers – ideal after a long day’s ski­ing on the Te­ton Moun­tains or snow­mo­bil­ing to hot springs, both of which ho­tel staff can help you or­gan­ise (from £150 per night; anvil­ho­tel.com).

2HUUS This stylish but in­for­mal new ho­tel in the ex­clu­sive Swiss ski vil­lage of Gs­taad is the vi­sion of Swedish ar­chi­tect Erik Nis­sen Jo­hansen of stu­dio Stylt Tram­poli, who lit­er­ally dug deep into the lo­cal land­scape to source ma­te­ri­als: stone to cre­ate the front desk was ex­ca­vated from the bot­tom of the nearby river Saane. Bonuses for guests in­clude com­pli­men­tary sledges, back­packs and binoc­u­lars, as well as use of the vast spa’s Fin­nish sauna and herbal 3 steam bath (from £227 per night; hu­us­gstaad.com). OVER­LOOK LODGE A cross be­tween a chalet and a ho­tel, Over­look Lodge is a con­tem­po­rary take on the tra­di­tional win­ter re­treat in Cervo, a quaint vil­lage just above car-free Zer­matt in south­ern Switzer­land. Set up by a group of young Swiss en­trepreneurs, it is, as they say, ‘no stuffy, old-school hunt­ing lodge’. In­deed, in­side the ho­tel built from lo­cal pine, you’ll find fur­ni­ture by Hay and light­ing by French brand Lampe Gras. It is the mag­nif­i­cent views of the Mat­ter­horn peak, how­ever, that steal the show (from 4 £212 per night; de­sign­ho­tels.com). SEVERIN’S In Arl­berg, Aus­tria, Severin’s has a choco­late-box chalet ex­te­rior that be­lies the tech­nol­ogy (ipad-con­trolled light­ing, Ama­zon Prime tele­vi­sion) and mod­ern in­te­ri­ors within. The walls of the nine suites are cov­ered in re­claimed Ty­rolean wood, the ceil­ings are cop­per, and all are fur­nished by Ital­ian su­per­brand Minotti and hung with art­works cu­rated by Vi­enna’s Con­tem­po­rary Art Ad­vi­sors. Plus, after a day on the Lech and St An­ton slopes, there’s a state-of-the-art spa to un­wind in (from £611 per night with full board; sev­erins-lech.at).
