A brand new hotel name has hit the serene shores of Bali and, if your plans are bringing you to the Indonesian island, this one might be worth checking out -- and the name is easy to remember as long as you know the alphabet.
New hotel chain, L Hotels, have opened their very first luxury property in the tourist hotspot of Seminyak and marries urban, sleek design with the quintessential Balinese warmth that we have come to love.
This 30-suite property boasts Balinese butler service for each floor of the hotel for all of your needs in paradise. Once inside the room, guests can pamper themselves with plush décor, Kiehl's amenities, soap and pillow menus and thread-count specific sheets. While the design is heavy on the 'downtown high-rise apartment' each room features a hand-carved wooden ceiling ornament reflecting the Balinese influence.
Update 11.13.13: The digital art wall is now live!
As is often the case, not quite everything is up and running yet. There are a few rooms still being worked on, the 15-foot digital art wall is not yet live (though looks pretty cool as is, IOO), and the Wayfarer restaurant is not open (but will be, hopefully in about two weeks -- room service, thankfully, is available).
Nevertheless, we stopped by for a peek on opening afternoon and watched as the lobby steadily filled up with arriving guests -- we were told occupancy rates for opening week were high. And indeed, for a random Tuesday in November (today), rates are $499 a night. Normally, they will be even higher at $599 a night. Fortunately, that includes WiFi and a bunch of other goodies. Keep reading to find out what those are.

Andy Murray may have lost his US Open trophy but he's still got the fighting spirit required for his new hotelier career -- he's only gone and nicked someone else's chef for his own hotel!
Darin Campbell, who is currently executive head chef at the Hotel du Vin - One Devonshire Gardens, Glasgow, will start work at Murray's Cromlix House (the newest member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World) in January. The hotel won't open until April, but Campbell will be working on the menu for the restaurant to be run by Michelin-starred chef Albert Roux.

During our recent trip to Copenhagen we stopped in at, what looked to be, a Moroccan palace but in reality turned out to be the swanky Nimb Hotel.
Nimb is located in Tivoli Gardens (don’t be fooled – Tivoli is swarming with great restaurants and bars, not just kids and candy floss). From the outside the hotel looks like it’s a theme park ride: You expect cars with little kids and unhappy parents will emerge from within and the faint strains of “It’s A Small Palace After All” can be heard. However, once you enter the sanctity of the lobby, you find that it is, indeed, a theme park of sorts – one made for design-loving hotel geeks.
When Nimb Hotel first opened in 1909 it wasn’t a hotel at all, but a building that first housed a bazaar and a restaurant. In 2008 it was decided that a hotel should be created and Nimb Hotel was born.
There are plenty of pics for you in the photo gallery!
When we think of Spain, immediately thoughts of a sun-scorched land, sweet sangria, and tasty tapas come to mind. No doubt that we indulged in all of those a lot on a trip to the Iberian Peninsula, but once we walked into Hotel Tres on the Balearic Island of Mallorca Hotels, we knew we had arrived in paradise.
The hotel is tucked away down a cobblestone street behind an unassuming stone archway and an iron gate. In fact, we may not have been able to find it if we hadn't Google Mapped prior to arrival, but the hidden hotel was worth the search. After check-in we walked through a secluded courtyard and headed to our room, but the real jaw-dropper was the roof-top deck.
