Jonathan Saunders' Top Hotels

Published

When the fashion pack travel, where do they stay? Our favourite Scottish designer reveals his top hotels.

  • Ace Hotel, London

    “This is the most recent hotel I’ve stayed in – it’s the first European outpost from the Ace Hotel group; a piece of New York City in London, right in the heart of Shoreditch, so it’s perfect for friends who are visiting from out of town...

  • Ace Hotel, London

    I’d describe its look as minimal, clean and accessible. Drinks and dinner at Hoi Polloi, its late-night restaurant, are a must even if you live in London.” acehotel.com/london

  • Raffles, Singapore

    “This hotel is an incredible insight into the luxury of the Far East. I’ve stayed here twice; after the long flight and endless meetings, I feel a sense of relief when I enter the doors...

  • Raffles, Singapore

    The blend of modern design with historical furnishings is impressive. Go to the Long Bar for people watching and a Singapore Sling.” raffles.com/singapore

  • Bowery Hotel, New York

    “Since 2010, I’ve stayed at The Bowery too many times to count. It’s opulent, which is unexpected given its location on the Lower East Side, but it works...

  • Bowery Hotel, New York

    It’s a short walk to Soho, my favourite part of the city, and has the perfect balance of a young, fun vibe in a luxurious setting. I recommend having cocktails on the veranda on a New York evening.” theboweryhotel.com

  • Soneva Kiri, Koh Kood iSland Thailand

    “When I stayed here in March, it was my first holiday for a while; it was relaxing to be so far from the city. The service was incredible and our villa was a stone’s throw from the ocean; paradise!..

  • Soneva Kiri, Koh Kood iSland Thailand

    The resort’s natural materials and timbers blend into the surroundings but the best thing is that there’s no pressure to do anything; all you need is a good book.” soneva.com/soneva-kiri
