Starting us off, we head to Thailand. How does sleeping in a luxury tented camp in the midst of a tropical rainforest or in a floating tented camp sound?

Cave slumber Santorini

Can primitive meet luxury? We certainly think so, in the volcanic hills of Santorini in Greece. Resting into the rocks, the adults-only San Antonio's Superior Suites offer a really cave-like feel, where you can unwind in a hanging whirlpool that offers enchanting views over the Aegean Sea and the caldera. Enjoy an iconic sunset over the caldera and watch as the sky lights up with shades of red and orange, a moment not to be missed.
