Huns, you can expect nothing but the best for your wardrobe or bag collection when you invest in certain designer pieces, the same can be said for staying in designer boutique hotels when you book a holiday. We’re talking about decadent, opulent and sometimes boutique, resorts where you can unwind in comfort.

From the Christian Louboutin boutique escape in Portugal, and Ralph Lauren in Jamaica to a staycation at The Bulgari Hotel in Knightsbridge, London, these are the designer hotels we’d recommend for any future stays. Let’s face it, #itsalifestyle.

The Armani Hotel, Dubai

Escape to the Middle East and find roots in the Armani Hotel located in the Burj Khalifa. With the world’s largest tower, in the city of opulence, you can expect panoramic views, a renowned spa and a range of dining experiences.

Continentale, Florence

The second of Salvatore Ferragamo’s hotel chain, this minimal spot in the heart of Florence is a divine treat for you and your partner to visit in the heart of one of the most romantic cities. It’s a must-visit with 43 Luxury suites and an elegant riverside Italian restaurant.

Round Hill Hotel and Villas, Jamaica

Design over 110 acres with beautiful, crystal beaches, is a resort by Ralph Lauren. Oceanic views are perfect for lounging, it’s a paradise.

Palazzo Versace Gold Coast, Australia

One of the first fashion-designer hotels, this decadent and glamorous hotel is reminiscent of the bold grandeur that is Versace. Unlike the restaurant in Miami, the five-star hotel houses over 200 rooms and 72 villas reflecting the character of Gianni Versace. Laze by the pools or enjoy several award-winning restaurants during your stay.

Tortuga Bay, Dominican Republic

A hotel designed by the late Oscar de la Renta is a private, idyllic reserve tucked away in the Caribbean. Spectacular interiors, unwind at the spas or recharge in their gyms before a day of lounging by the pool.

The Bulgari Hotel, London

In the heart of Knightsbridge is the heavenly escape that is The Bulgari Hotel. With shopping havens such as Harrods at your door, you’ll want to capture the sleek and modern architecture forever. With 85 rooms and suites, have a sense of privacy and peace when you travel.

Vermelho Melides, Portugal


The first hotel by show designer, Christian Louboutin, this well-kept beauty only opened this year and is gaining a lot of love. Family-run restaurants, outdoor terraces and many lanes to meander around the hotel, it’s a luxurious slice of heaven only an hour away from Lisbon.
