Uxua | Bahia, Brazil

Uxua Casa Hotel & Spa lies between Atlantic rainforest and the sugary beaches of Trancoso – possibly the world's smartest fishing village. Brainchild of former Diesel creative director Wilbert Das, it pairs impossibly chic design with abundant local character. There are nine brightly painted casitas, each designed by local artists, littered with Bahian art and furniture handpicked in Minas Gerais. Some have private outdoor showers, Jacuzzis and plunge pools. Expertly-mixed caipirinhas roll from cocktail shaker to poolside lounger and the on-site spa employs some of the best hands in Bahia.

The Singular Patagonia | Puerto Natales, Chile

The Singular Patagonia | Puerto Natales, Chile

At the edge of the south Chilean archipelago, almost at the end of the world, sits one of South America´s most remarkable hotels. Chilean architect Pedro Kovacic has transformed a 1915 meat-processing plant into a labyrinth of soaring interiors laden with Victorian-style comforts – each of it 57 rooms feature roll-top baths, king-size beds and mahogany writing desks. The spa is the largest in Patagonia and the hotel restaurant every bit as spectacular as the landscape that surrounds it.

Wake up to floor-to-ceiling views of snow-capped peaks and turbulent seas – ample inspiration for the day ahead and an excellent excuse for breakfast in bed.
