You need to check out the wonderful property, Su Gologone, on the island paradise of Sardinia.  Surrounded by geraniums, hydrangeas, bougainvillea and prickly pears, the hotel is a magical getaway.
















Su Gologone is all about the tradition, art and culture of this distinctive part of the world – every detail expresses the authenticity of this land: the furnishings and materials used are as Sardinian as they come, including juniper wood, ancient ceramics, terracotta and white plaster with periwinkle inlays – the same blue that is used to dye the traditional costumes of the Oliena region.

Each of the 23 rooms at Su Gologone is decorated in tones of the island with white washed walls, exposed rustic beams, and colorful textiles.  Each one is a unique surprise and dedicated to a unique Sardinian artist.

The best parts of Su Gologone are its stunning gardens and gorgeous terrace with view of Mount Corrasi.  Enjoy the amazing flavors of Sardinia while enjoying the exquisite view.  Food at Su Gologone follows the Sardinian tradition of rustic deliciousness – fresh, simple flavors that will leave lasting memories.

Tbilisi, Georgia may not be on everyone’s tourist radar, but after an article in Monocle a few years back, it’s had me intrigued.  When I came across the Rooms Hotel Tbilisi, I thought that a visit might be in order.  Tbilisi is a cultural city, brimming with museums, galleries, and eastern history.  It’s hearty food is definitely worth checking out.

The impressively decorated 8-floor property boasts 140 rooms and suites, combining distinct 1930s New York vibes with old-world Tbilisi charm.

Rich finishes, playful colors, mood lighting, velvety textures, and carefully selected sounds fill the spacious fireplace lounge and cocktail bar—home to international guests and fashionable Georgians alike. With an emphasis on local ingredients, executive chef Francesco Manalo and a team of mixologists, of the nouveau American restaurant “The Kitchen,” concoct a delectable menu that changes weekly.
