Heaven is a pumphouse

I have always said that New Zealand is God's country. Perhaps I need to look a little closer to home, to the beautiful, unspoilt wilderness of Tasmania. Today we are heading to heaven in a pumphouse. Decommissioned in the 90s the Lake St Clair hydroelectric pumphouse lay empty having defeated a number of developers until Simon Currant stepped in in 2004. Finally in 2015 after a decade of hard work Pumphouse Point, a boutique hotel of 18 rooms, designed by Cumulus Studio, opened its doors. Two buildings ,one onshore the other at the end of the flume (jetty), provide the accommodation and facilities. The rooms are contemporary cool with a nod to the industrial but really it's all about the wilderness. And truly it's a slice of paradise.

The Flushing Meadows

I have never been to Germany, but if I ever to get the opportunity to go, I know where I want to stay! The Flushing Meadows. Our hotel is situated on the top two floors of an industrial building in Munich's most vibrant neighborhood, the Glockenbach – just a couple of meters from the Isar's wild river banks. The third floor features 11 individual loft studios with exceptionally high ceilings, each created in collaboration with selected personalities and friends from various creative realms, including music, cinema, design, sports and art. The top floor is home to five variously sized penthouse studios, some with private terrace – as well as the Flushing Meadows Bar.

The ultimate beach shack

The view is to die for and the house is simply beautiful. I like my beach house to be relaxed and laid back but still with a certain sophistication. (Listen to me! As if I have a beach house!) Stylish, chic, private and elegant but not too precious that you can't see kids in swim suits and towels over chairs. I'd move in here in a heart beat. Warm sun, the sound of crashing waves and that view. Amaroo at Whale Beach north of Sydney is available for holidays via Contemporary Hotels.

Rough luxe

Rough luxe. Textures. Old world glamour. Drama. Glamour. The spaces created by architect and designer Rabih Hage, whether hotels or residences, are pure understated luxury. They are simply art.
