Deciding where to go on holiday and choosing a place to stay from the multitude on offer is often a difficult task. In ‘More Places to Stay – Hotels of the World’, the latest in the ‘Places to Stay’ series, photographer Grant Sheehan and writer Shelley-Maree Cassidy have helpfully done some careful research for you and chosen some special destinations to add to your list of must-visit. Nearly two dozen very different hotels in countries on every continent are featured; classic, contemporary and eccentric in design; and in off-the-beaten-track locations, towns and cities.
You can choose from rural retreats, from the Daintree Eco-Lodge in the Australian rainforest to the romantic Las Cavas Wine Lodge in Argentina, gracious Greenhill Lodge here in New Zealand, stunning safari camps in Botswana, and more. Or pick a city base; the historic National Hotel in Moscow, the charming L’ Otel in Paris or Hong Kong’s Grand Peninsula. Dance the tango in Buenos Aires at the Faena + Universe Hotel; take in the spectacular view from La Minervetta in Sorrento, or from the tallest hotel in the world – Burj al Arab in Dubai.
The book shows the hotels in their settings and some of the sights in many photographs, accompanied by text describing both hotel and place. It will appeal to both the active traveler, as well as the armchair one, and will make an excellent gift for that hard-to-buy-for someone who has everything.
