Luxury hotels are gearing up for summer with brand partnerships from some of the biggest names in fashion, music and food. Explore some of the most exciting mash-ups in our roundup below.
Bubbly on the Bosporus
Celebrate summer with a glass of champagne from the new Veuve Clicquot pop-up bar on the manicured grounds of Çirağan Palace Kempinski Istanbul. Savor the fizz in this former Ottoman palace overlooking the Bosporus. The pop-up, which is only available until June 26, specializes in Veuve Clicquot Ponsardin champagne.
Soak up the Sun in SoHo
No swimwear, no problem — at least at Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Trump SoHo New York. The hotel has partnered with ViX Paula Hermanny swimwear to offer the $468 ViX Valise, filled with all of the essentials for the perfect pool day, including a 24-karat gold-accented bikini, caftan, flip-flops and towel, packed into a sturdy-yet-fashionable canvas tote. After all, it’s imperative to look your best at Trump SoHo’s 6,000-square-foot pool deck lined in Italian mosaic tile.
Sounds of Summer at Le Méridien
French hotel chain Le Méridien is soundscaping your summer with a brand-new partnership with bossa nova band Nouvelle Vague. The 24-hour, day-to-night soundtrack of European-inspired tunes takes guests seamlessly from work to play as it’s designed to complement the brand’s novel “hub” lobby experience and cutting-edge aperitif cocktail hour; the group will also play several live engagements at properties in Shanghai and New Delhi.
Take the Uber-luxe route in Hawaii
Book an oceanfront or residential suite at Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea this summer — the island’s only Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star property — and enjoy Uber transfer service on the front and back-end of your trip. Included in the cost of your stay, savor a luxury car transfer from your home to the airport and back via Uber, and from Kahului Airport to Four Seasons Maui in one of the resort’s eco-friendly Teslas or high-end SUVs.
