Tired of the cold? Here are some Spring hotel ideas
Spring is here and isn’t it just gorgeous? I love this time of the year – no more coats (or not so many coats) and some wonderful destinations around the world to discover. And some are just perfect if you are planning a trip this Spring. Here are my 5 luxury hotels perfect for Spring:
Hotel Alfonso XIII, Seville, Spain
Seville is the perfect city break destination, offering a bit of culture, a bit of shopping, lots of jamon iberico and, of course, a bit of sunshine. In my book, that makes for a perfect weekend destination. I highly recommend Alfonso XIII, a Luxury Collection hotel as your home away from home when you visit. Avoid Summer as it gets really really hot.

The Carlyle, New York City, USA
New York is brilliant all year round, but there is something about Spring. And Central Park. And fabulous clothes to buy. On a recent visit to the city, I stayed at The Carlyle, a Rosewood Hotel and loved it. Namely the views and the monogrammed pillowcases (what a fabulous detail).
Rates from £420. Click here to book The Carlyle.
Belmond Reids Palace, Madeira, Portugal
Madeira Island is known as the pearl of the Atlantic, and the Belmond Reids Palace is, without a doubt, the Grand Dame of this incredibly beautiful island which delivers on eye candy, wine and flora. And perfect gin and tonic locations.
Rates from £280. Click here to book the Belmond Reids Palace.
Soho Farmhouse, Oxfordshire, UK
A little bit of countryside paradise an hour away from London… and from us. I first visited Soho Farmhouse with my friend Molly and have joined other friends who are Soho House Members. Non-members can visit by staying the night – and it is lovely. We love the farmhouse shop (amazing cheeses to buy) and the Sunday roast dinners.
Rates from £350. Click here to book Soho Farmhouse.
Valverde Hotel, Lisbon, Portugal
This boutique hotel in Lisbon is the latest find in my hometown of Lisbon, Portugal. I stayed for a long weekend and absolutely loved Valverde Hotel – and with a fabulous location in Lisbon’s Avenida da Liberdade, you may love it too.
