Cotton House Hotel – Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain
Renowned designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán has worked his magic on this 19th-century building, once home to the cotton-makers’ guild. The Batuar restaurant does not disappoint either, with Catalan-inspired dishes given creative pizzazz and served, in summer, on a colonial-styled terrace shaded by date palms and parasols.
Upstairs, a plunge pool and daybeds offer an oasis from which to admire the spires of the Sagrada Família.
Fogo Island Inn – Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada
Perched on a rocky island foreshore off Newfoundland, on Canada’s Atlantic seaboard, the Fogo Island Inn draws inspiration from the remote fishing community that surrounds it. All profits are brought back into the local community.
