4 Idyllic Destination Hotels on Both Sides of the Atlantic

Four international hotels on both sides of the Atlantic embrace their enchanting environs.

“It’s a seamless blend of traditional building techniques and ancient domesticity.”

Firm: Manca Studio

Project: Ai Maestri

Location: Matera, Italy

Standout: Located in a district of Paleolithic cave dwellings, elements in the four guest rooms and café were either carved directly out of the existing limestone face or constructed in front of it with blocks of the stone that resulted from the excavation.

“Our color choices replicate the surrounding hills and sunsets.”

Firm: Ilaria Miani

Project: Monteverdi Tuscany

Location: Castiglioncello del Trinoro, Italy

Standout: An entire medieval hilltop village is now a hospitality complex offer­ing a culinary academy in the former schoolhouse, suites outfitted in furni­ture custom-made on-site, and a jet pool inspired by ancient Roman baths.

“We carefully preserved the romantic and decadent atmosphere.”

Firm: OHLab

Project: Can Bordoy

Location: Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Standout: Combining the original pine floors and limestone main staircase with an era-appropriate materials palette of lime mortar and stucco plaster, a 500-year-old abandoned house is now home to 24 guest rooms and a swimming pool surrounded by primordial jacaranda and citrus trees. 

“Rather than conceal or strip away, we dramatized the multiple layers.”

Project: 21c Museum Hotel

Location: Kansas City, Missouri

Standout: The latest property in this con­temporary art–driven chainlet features Ken and Julia Yonetani’s ultraviolet “chandelier” hanging from the 1888 glass dome in the reception area of the former Savoy Hotel, still replete with its original Victorian and Arts and Crafts details.
