Kitzhof 3

Pre-ski stay in the beautiful Austrian Alpines

The low sun coupled with crisp air tickling your cheeks must be the signature trademark of the Austrian autumn. Surrounded by colourful mountain meadows dotted with wildflowers and the steep rock formations of Wilder Kaiser Mountain, we think the Hotel Kitzhof Mountain Design Resort in Bavaria just might be the perfect place to go enjoy it.

This hotel integrates contemporary, minimalist lines with classic alpine textures and local materials, allowing guests to experience the true essence of Austrian alpine living. Here, you can choose to simply enjoy your holiday relaxing and enjoying the hotel’s superb views and classic Bavarian charm, or you can call on your inner biking enthusiast and experience the area’s astonishing nature riding through part of the world’s largest electric cycling area.

To enjoy this beautiful pre-ski season at the Hotel Kitzhof Mountain Design Resort, visit Design Hotels to book your stay.

QT 1

The QT Sydney hotel – luxurious, quirky design in the CBD

In September of this year, less than a month ago, the QT Sydney hotel opened its doors within two of the city’s most iconic buildings; the historic Gowings department store and the heritage-listed State Theatre. While the facades are restored to their former glory, the insides of the hotel, designed by acclaimed designer Nic Graham, are created based on a mix of original features, curated digital art installations, eclectic artefacts and quirky design pieces, inspired by the retail and theatre history of the two buildings.

The hotel’s 200 guest rooms come in 12 different styles, where cohesion is allowed through the deep palette of reds, oranges, yellows and whites featured in all them. The rooms in the Gowings Building are bright and airy with eccentric touches and embellishments, matching the original timber floors from 1929. Underpinning the history of the State Theatre, the rooms you’ll find here feature Rothko-inspired carpets and rugs, finished off with playful touches like bowler hat lamps, unusual collectables and pops of colour.

Tough the design of the hotel makes for an experience all in itself; guests are encouraged to explore the treasures of Sydney by planning their city adventures using the hotel’s Concierge iPhone and iPad app. We think this makes for a hotel experience both fit for those Sydney locals wanting to spend a weekend in new, luxurious surroundings, as well as those visiting this glorious, Australian city.

Berlin Luxury

Berlin Luxury

Despite being 13 years old, an eon for a designer hotel, The Mandala in Germany’s very own Berlin does not betray its age. Large spacious rooms that invite guests to stay longer, an interior design concept that is both modern and aimed for longevity, and carefully chosen timeless design pieces keep the hotel ever-fresh in Berlin’s fast-paced Potsdamer Platz area. With a plethora of offerings enough to daunt the most seasoned traveller, get a private introduction to the city by Mandala’s managing partners Lutz Hesse and Christian Andresen instead. Begin this journey on the 24th and 25th floors of the famous Kollhof-Tower, and go on to delight your senses with a spa ritual at ONO Spa and a five course dinner at the Michelin-starred FACIL restaurant, amongst other things.

We know we’d certainly love to spend our next Berlin holiday waking up at this hotel. If you’re thinking the same, you can find out more about availability and prices by visiting our friends at Design Hotels.

Swiss hotel with a view – oh, what a view!

Swiss hotel with a view – oh, what a view!

A timber-framed sanctuary nestled on the slopes above Zermatt in Switzerland, Cervo Mountain Boutique Resort is at once a traditional Alpine lodge and comfortingly modern. This is in part due to the structure, a converted 1950s chalet, as well as the use of local materials, the hunting treasures on the walls that come together with clean lines and the clutter-free expansive spaces. And as if these luxurious surroundings weren’t enough, Owner Daniel Lauber, a hunting enthusiast, will take you on the best trails to enjoy the spectacular views of Upper Valais.

The thought of waking up at this beautiful hotel to the view of the Matterhorn Mountains makes us at POSTER want to jump on a plane straight away. If you’re thinking this just might be your next holiday destination too, go to designhotels.com to book your stay.

Fivelements-02sRGB

Bali- 5 Elements

Hotel Style: At one with nature

The Vibe: Peace and tranquility, empowerment in health and life.

Ideal For: Travelers seeking eco-conscious healing retreats or self-discovery journeys.

Poster Recommends: The menu with a focus on organic and living foods. Re-learning about what to put in to get the best out of life.

Investment: No

Wrap up: To stay at Fivelements is to experience the future of mystic economies, which uses the wisdom of traditional healing cultures and promotes peace among nations. As Generation X and Y gently ease the baby boomers out of resort management/ownership roles this is the future of travel, with guest services extending to making herbal remedies, organic medical workshops, passing down ancient knowledge from one to the other. Vibrational healing, Aikido, Somatic Therapy and Healing Dance replace more typical resort sports; there is recognition in its cuisine, programs and retreats that humans love the acquisition of knowledge, even whilst holidaying.
