Looking for the perfect hidden Chic Retreat, a romantic boutique hotel far from the crowds, or simply a luxury hideaway to get away from it all? Our collection of Hide & Chic Retreats is the ultimate guide for hidden luxury villas, small luxury hotels and romantic hideaways, where you’ll be guaranteed peace, quiet and tranquillity.

So whisk away a loved one for an intimate weekend at Grace Santorini Hotel, an award-winning boutique hotel in Santorini, or enjoy some time out on a solo trip to the hidden gem Villa Arcadio nestled amid olive groves by Lake Garda. A renovated convent, it’s equally ideal whether you want some real time out, or to explore the lake and go walking in the hills. In Jamaica, you can chill out at Pimento Hill, a luxury villa for rent with complimentary beach membership at Round Hill Hotel.

If you prefer the unique colours and sights of India, browse our selection of Hide & Chic Retreats which includes Sukoon, the first eco luxury houseboat in Srinagar in the Kashmir Valley; the beach-chic Neeleshwar Hermitage in Kerala where you can enjoy your own private cottage and miles of unspoilt beaches, Shreyas Yoga Retreat just an hour from Bangalore and the Glenburn Tea Estate on the banks of the River Rungeet in the natural surroundings of the Himalayas in Darjeeling.

You don’t get more Hide & Chic than Brazil’s off-the-beaten-track beaches in Bahia. Rent Casa do Dean exclusively (it sleeps 10 people), or stay at Pousada Picinguaba which overlooks sandy beaches and is a short drive to the stunning town of Paraty. Our more classic fly and flop destinations include Baraka Point, an exclusive private island where you can truly escape in the lap of luxury in the British Virgin Islands; The Lone Star Hotel and Restaurant in Barbados, and Angsana Balaclava Mauritius, which is perfect for honeymooners. All 3 are paradise hideaways with brilliant service, fantastic food and good design.

Hide & Chic Retreats aren’t just about the beaches though: we have a selection of boutique hotels in rural locations too. Quinta da Bouca d'Arques in the Minho region of Portugal, where the owners have moved away from traditional materials and have used iron, glass and concrete throughout the property creating a modern fresh feel in all of the 7 fully-equipped casas. Antik Zeytin Hotel in Bodrum, Turkey offers guests the opportunity to have a go at making their own olive oil using ancient olive presses. And Palazzo Radomiri on the edge of the Bay of Kotor in Montenegro is far enough away from the town of Kotor to feel like a hidden secret but near enough to be able to dip in and out of the action. Browse our collection to find your perfect Hide & Chic Retreat – we know you’ll love them as much as we do.
