Weekly Hotel Specials: Grand Hotel Resort Ma & Ma, PUBLIC Chicago & Kempinski Hotel Bahia

 
 

Sardinia, Italy

The Lowdown: On the tiny island of La Maddalena, off the north coast of Sardinia, the Grand Hotel Resort Ma&Ma is a stylish spa retreat set on seven acres of lush grounds. Just 450 feet from the sea, the resort is made up of a cluster of light coral-hued buildings cut from local stone. The 92 guestrooms are elaborately designed and feature textured wallpaper, oversize headboards, blond wood floors and silk-topped beds. All come with balconies and such upscale creature comforts as Acqua di Parma toiletries and pillow menus. The immense spa is home to a mineral-rich swimming pool, a Finnish bio-sauna, a Turkish bath and a flotation pool. Fill up on Sardinian specialties at the Antica Isola restaurant which champions the sous-vide cooking technique (said to lock in vitamins and minerals). Breakfast is served in the restaurant or on the terrace overlooking the pool.

In the Area: Located between Sardinia and Corsica, the La Maddalena archipelago sits off Sardinia's Costa Smeralda and is made up of seven main islands and more than 50 islets. La Maddelena is the largest, and it can be reached in around 20 minutes from the port of Palau on Sardinia's northwest coast. Swimming, sailing and strolling are the order of the day here, and the beaches are some of Italy's best. On the north coast, the dune-backed Bassa Trinitàoffers tropical sea and sand, or you can sail across to the smaller island of Budelli to kick back on Spiaggia Rosa, a stunning stretch of sand colored pink by the shells of tiny marine animals. In the island's main town, stroll the historic streets, stop for a drink at one of the many alfresco bars, and wend your way up to the fortress for sweeping views of the surrounding outcrops that dot the Mediterranean.

Budget: Estimated $162 - $534 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room per TripAdvisor)

 


PERFECT FOR A...

 

Gold Coast neighborhood of Chicago

The 285 guestrooms at PUBLIC Chicago are gorgeously designed spaces. A modern white-on-white color scheme showcases Frette linens, a curated collection of Jean-Baptiste Mondino photographs and postcards of local jazz musicians and personalities. The rooms also have noticeably large closets, thanks to long-ago train travelers who brought massive trunks with them back when this was the Ambassador East Hotel.
