Contain Hotel

Constructed from a trio of stacked shipping containers, the Contain Hotel offers accommodations for the surfing nomad. The five-room micro hotel sits on the Elbe riverbank in the Czech Republic and provides sleeping for up to 13 guests. The ground floor houses bathrooms, storage, and a four-bed room, while the upper level contains the remaining four rooms and a shared terrace. Each room features custom-made furniture, birch plywood walls and ceilings, and a glazed wall to open up the small space and provide views of the surrounding waterfront landscape.

  • Lokal Hotel

    Skipping the front desk at check-in used to be a VIP-level perk. At Philly's Lokal Hotel, it's the norm. Promising "invisible service" for all who stay in its six apartment-style suites, it uses automated codes instead of a traditional front desk, and in-room iPads to access amenities like food and grocery delivery. The rooms themselves have full kitchens, clawfoot tubs, and mid-century furnishings, which match well with the building's raw, industrial feel and the curated books and artwork.

  • La Granja Ibiza

    Located on a 20-acre farm surrounded by a forest of pine and citrus trees, the La Granja Ibiza is a members-only retreat in the middle of the Mediterranean. The former private residence now offers nine guest rooms, ranging from an intimate single room to suites with a private garden and terrace, featuring an ancient Iberian aesthetic with arched walls, dark wood beam ceilings and doors, and hammered iron fixtures. A short distance from the farmhouse is a guesthouse with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, lounge area, and private garden. The on-site chef works closely with the farmer and local producers to create the freshest farm-to-table meals, offered family style around the communal table. After dinner drinks are served at the base of a mature carob tree, where you can indulge in an assortment of mezcal-based cocktails and organic wines.
