Shangri-La Paris, ultra luxury living in a real palace 

Originally the private residence of Roland Napoléon Bonaparte, the Shangri-La Paris has a wedding-cake facade, grand stairway and a string of historic salons, which have been listed and painstakingly restored with hand-gilded panelling and neoclassical friezes. Located in the 16th arrondissement, the 101 bedrooms and suites are calmly classical, recalling the French grand lifestyle, in soft creams, beiges, blues and greys, with deep beds and sofas and the best ones have large rooftop terraces with astonishing views of the Eiffel Tower, like the mine.
Reminiscent of the original Shang Palace in Hong Kong’s Kowloon Shangri-La, Paris’ version of the Chinese restaurant is just delicious.

Palazzo Ducale Venturi, a Barroque Palazzo in the heart of Puglia

Opening today April 3rd, the Palazzo is one of the first Ducal houses of Salento to welcome guests in the sumptuous and aristocratic world of five centuries of history, art and culture. It offers 13 rooms only & each one was completely renovated under the supervision of the Soprintendenza of Cultural Heritage. My favorite rooms are the 203 & 201, and of course the garden suite. Wide, bright and lovely, with all details taken care of, they use Ortigia toiletries.
Food is a serious thing in Palazzo, chef Donato Marsella makes & bakes absolutely all what is served in the breakfast, delicious. Dinner just by request. The gorgeous outdoor pool & the tiny spa, makes the hotel perfect to enjoy your vacation.

Gran Canaria, a miniature continent

I visited Gran Canaria twice in the last 5 months and I'll be back in June. I felt in love in the island; an island of contrasts, with a spectacular postcard landscape which stands out for its wealth of natural beauty, its micro climates and its unique geographical terrain. Do not doubt to choose Gran Canaria for an exotic safe vacation and to enjoy the sun & beach weather the whole year

When The Peninsula Bangkok organises a unique event, success is assured. I was the lucky girl to enjoy the exclusive Christmas dinner at the river. Yummiest food in a luxury atmosphere. These are real #PenMoments in my favorite city of the world, Bangkok
