RS Radar: 100 Getaways Around the World

taschen_cover_getaways_press_selectionHere at RoomSuggestion, we are huge fans of quirky rooms full of luxury and character, and when we spotted this new TASCHEN publication 100 Getaways around the World, we just had to take a peek inside and be transported to diverse luxury rooms across the globe to take in breathtaking views.

When traveling for business, we often prefer hotel rooms of the same type in London, Paris, or Shanghai, settling for convenience over creature luxuries. However, a whole different set of rules seems to apply when we search for a place for the ideal family vacation, or the romantic getaway or simply a luxury retreat away from the daily hustle and bustle. This is when we actively seek out the best rooms with stunning views, sumptuous beds and impeccable decor. And this is where TASCHEN's 100 Getaways around the World comes in handy.

A compilation of 100 hotels across the world, from Abu Dhabi to Vietnam, the two volumes make it a breeze to choose where to relax next, from dream castles like Villa Feltrinelli on Lake Garda to the glass-fronted hipster chic of Juvet Hotel in Norway; from Mediterranean pensiones with nostalgic flair and moderate rates to the pricey-yet-worthy desert glamour of Amangiri resort in Utah’s canyon country. Even if you are not travelling anywhere anytime soon, this publication is the perfect companion to curl up with on a rainy day for a healthy dose of armchair travellinf.

100 very special hotels and guesthouses all over the world from bed & breakfast basic to six-star luxurious selected by TASCHEN’s style and travel department according to criteria like stylistic harmony, location, service, and cost-performance ratio. Each hotel comes with a reader-friendly chart listing the number of rooms, current prices, type of cuisine, amenities, plus the all important X-factor: the feature that makes staying there a truly unique experience.
