Review

"Just what we need in times of recession – a book full of escapism...pictorially it′s gorgeous" (Metro, December 5th 2008)

"...a sumptuously illustrated study of luxury resorts" (The Guardian, November 15th 2008)

"...good geographical spread of venues...plenty of photographs to accompany the eclectic selection of hotels... escapist relief from wintery Britain." (Telegraph.co.uk, November 28th 2008)

"Just what we need in times of recession – a book full of escapism...pictorially it′s gorgeous" (Metro, December 5th 2008)

"...a lavish book...poring over the photographs and imagining hot holidays by petal–strewn pools...provides escapist relief" (Sunday Telegraph, January 18th 2009)

"...beautifully presented tome...this is a veritable treasure trove of fantasy–land international travel  destinations." (Junior, March 2009)

From the Author

In my work as a specialist travel consultant I come across a host of `experiences' and these pages showcase the best places I visited and those I'd really like to stay. Of course, many of them provide luxury at prices to match, but many are here because they offer not only great hospitality but something else, something truly original. The things that catch my eye are beautiful buildings, eclectic furniture and fittings by modern designers, carefully chosen antiques, an innovative use of lighting, thoughtful environmentally sensitive touches. I want to take you on a virtual journey that criss-crosses the globe from East to West and, I hope, has a destination for every taste. Here are paradise island hideaways and old world European elegance, colonial safari lodges and urban retreats... Here we focus on the brand new and newly renovated, paying special attention to the most recent Asian destinations in China, Bhutan
and Vietnam....

Much space is devoted to the stunning photography while the text seeks to convey that bit of extra magic thatenhances a guest's stay, whether it is the breathtaking views, the offerings of a virtuoso chef or the sublime decor of the spa.

Ultimately, this is my personal selection and others would come up with a very different list. But there is no right or wrong way to do ultraluxe. These are my recommendations and I am happy to share them with you.
Veronica Newson
