DESCRIPTION :
This title offers inspiring getaways from California to Zanzibar. The second installment of Angelika Taschen's round-up of the world's most exceptional hotels and retreats is packed with enough awe-inspiring photos and descriptions to make anyone want to quit working and take off to travel the world. Alas, most of us will have to content ourselves with a fabulous holiday now and then, for which this collection provides an ample and exotic range of destinations to choose from. Highlights of this title include: a shrine to 60s-70s kitch - a California inn where Liberace would have felt right at home; shabby-chic bungalows on Highway 1 in Big Sur; luxurious residences nestled on the Ubud hillside overlooking the Ayung River in Bali; oceanside bungalows at a pousada along an archipelago in Brazil; camping in 'royal style' in the Indian desert; luxury tented camp on an island in the best game-viewing location in Botswana; secluded hand-woven bandas on Zanzibar, off the coast of Kenya; a hotel-museum full of contemporary art and decorated by artists on the coast of Sicil; and, sumptuous Provencal spa retreat in the south of France.
