These six hotels include three new hotel openings in Puglia, Italy; Bodrum, Türkiye; and Mexico City, Mexico. The collection also welcomes a family-led winery hotel in Alentejo, Portugal, as well as a former school in Kyoto, Japan, and one of New Delhi’s finest heritage hotels.

Opened this past April, Alexander features 26 spacious suites adorned with Italian furnishings. The hotel boasts a gym; caviar bar; curated concierge-booked experiences; and Carmela y Sal restaurant, an eatery serving elevated Mexican cuisine.

Masseria Donna Menga, Nardò Lecce, Italy

This restored 16th-century farmhouse has been transformed into a chic and rustic hideaway. With just 24 rooms, Masseria Donna Menga promises an intimate luxury experience, complete with an on-site restaurant, bar and pool.

The Hotel Seiryu Kyoto Kiyomizu, Kyoto City, Japan

This modernist former 1930s school was transformed into a luxurious hotel. Classrooms have been reimagined as deluxe guestrooms, while the lounge and restaurant occupy the original lecture hall. Another restaurant and bar take over the rooftop.

A stop in Krakow would not be complete without a visit to the Lady with an Ermine, a Leonardo da Vinci masterpiece, said to be second only to the Mona Lisa.
