Regina and Christine are back, and they’re talking what else – travel. We know that you love your hotels, so Regina and Christine talk about three cool hotels and places that are new-ish on the scene. There’s a new stunner of a hotel in Rome, which is always a good idea, and a wish list from Spain to Panama. This is where to be now.
The Hotel: Six Senses Rome
The Location: Rome, Italy
The Six Senses opens one of its first city hotels, in the Eternal City of Rome. Located in a historic old palazzo that was most recently a bank, the 96 rooms are a modern enclave in the city. The spa is one of the most luxurious in the city and is more a wellness center than surface-level treatments. The opening of Six Senses is a gateway drug to the worldwide portfolio of hotels.
The Hotel: Islas Secas
The Location: Panama
You know a place has promise to be a cool hotel when it’s owned by a billionaire financier. Louis Bacon opened Islas Secas, which is a group of 14 private islands in a remote part of Panama. The island itself is intimate, with rooms for about 18 guests. It’s a Robinson Crusoe experience but with rustic luxury and top food and service.
The Hotel: Nobu
The Location: San Sebastian, Spain
The famed yellowtail and jalapeño and rock shrimp tempura are landing in San Sebastian, Spain this summer. Nobu continues its expansion around the world, with its second location to its sister hotel in Ibiza. The hotel will have about 20 rooms and will overlook La Concha Bay, which has San Sebastian’s main beach. Expect Nobu’s signature Zen and Japanese-inspired design aesthetic and of course, the signature Nobu restaurant. Essentially expect Nobu San Sebastian to be one of the cool hotels to stay at and eat at in the city when it opens.
