Dreaming of a culinary adventure in Italy, a journey of self-discovery in India or finding romance in Bali? With 14 independently-owned hotels across India, 60 properties in Italy and four resorts in Bali as well as over 500 hotels in 75 countries around the world, Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) offers a diverse choice of hotels and experiences for travellers who have been inspired by the book or film ‘Eat Pray Love’. Whether guests are travelling solo or with the love of their life, recovering from heartbreak, looking to find themselves, whisking a special someone off their feet or planning a second honeymoon they can go to http://www.slh.com to find the perfect getaway.
Guests are invited to take in the sights and sounds – and tastes – of Venice with a Gondola ride and gourmet picnic with sparkling wine at Ca’Sagredo, a 15th century palazzo on the Grand Canal.
For those wanting to be more hands on, the ‘Cooking & Spa Escape’ at Furore Inn Resort & Spa will tickle the taste buds. This resort is a tranquil hideaway on the Amalfi Coast surrounded by olive groves and vineyards overlooking the Mediterranean with gourmet restaurants offering inventive Mediterranean cuisine and local vintage wine. Kick off a four night stay in style with a private limousine transfer followed by two cooking classes, a wine tasting, visit to the local bakery and a dairy and a pampering spa package.
If Eat Pray Love fans are also on a quest to find the ‘best pizza in the world’ in Naples, they can stay at Grand Hotel Parker’s with stunning views over the bay to Capri and they will enjoy a bottle of Champagne and chocolate fruits in their room before a private visit to Villa Matlide vineyard and a gourmet dinner with more Champagne. Remember to save room for pizza!
The Michelin-starred Mirabelle Restaurant at Hotel Splendide Royal in Rome offers a unique dining experience courtesy of Giuseppe Sestito, Executive Chef, with stunning views from the huge glass terrace across the city.
