• The Goring

    London

    The 69-room, family-owned Goring is a favorite of the Middletons, and the current Goring heir, Jeremy, has been refurbishing the rooms using British designers. The pièce de résistance is the two-bedroom, two-reception Royal Suite, with classic English interiors by Russell Sage, incorporating dusky green silk that was originally woven in 1910 for the First Class Dining Room of the Titanic.
    Insider tip: The Goring’s private garden is larger than Centre Court at Wimbledon. From £370 per night; thegoring.com

    San Domenico
    Palace Hotel

    Taormina, Sicily

    This former Dominican monastery, complete with cloisters, looks onto Mount Etna, an ancient Greek amphitheater, and the azure sea in an area that attracts many famous artists, writers and composers. Relax in the jasmine, rosemary and hibiscus garden, just made for wandering around in a floaty gown.
    Insider tip: The Oratorio dei Frati Grand Bar is perfect for enjoying a vintage Armagnac in front of the open fire. From €360 per night; san-domenico-palace.com
