For some 112 years, The Ritz reigned as the Spanish capital’s most revered grand dame, a weighty mantle inherited two years ago by Mandarin Oriental, who treated the storied edifice to a comprehensive – yet sensitive – restoration last spring. The hotel woos revellers to its stellar location along the museum-laden Golden Triangle of art with 153 classic-contemporary rooms and suites; the spa, with its chandelier-lit, marble-lined indoor pool; and five bars and restaurants by Michelin-starred chef Quique Dacosta, including the magnificent Palm Court, where guests can enjoy afternoon tea under a truly spectacular crystal canopy ceiling. On your extra day, don’t miss a chance to take a curator-led tour of the world-famous Malborough Art Gallery.
Perched along the mesmerising blue waters of the Arabian Gulf, with views of the spectacular Dubai skyline, Mandarin Oriental Jumeira, Dubai does double duty as both an indulgent beach resort and slick urban hotel. By day, guests staying in any one of the hotel’s 215 rooms and suites (outfitted by globally renowned designer Jeffrey A Wilkes) can luxuriate on plush loungers along the hotel’s five stunning pools or seaside on its private beach, while the evening brings with it an array of out-of-this-world food adventures. Helmed by Portuguese star chef José Avillez, guests are truly spoilt for choice, from the Portuguese specialties on offer at the sixth-storey Tasca to the beachside Bay brasserie. On your extra night, crown your visit to Dubai with a dinner at Sublimotion, chef Paco Roncero’s intimate, multisensory dining extravaganza.
