Learn what makes each property so special. Then, connect with WeGalavant to plan and book your trip.

The Place Firenze

The 20-room Tuscan gem is a paragon of traditional Italian craftsmanship, imbuing its elegant homey atmosphere with artisanal details. (And Florence is one of the best places to stay in Italy, we might add.) 

The Place of Wonders, the hotel’s foundation, furthers its dedication to artistry. As part of its effort to preserve and celebrate Italian craft, the foundation funds scholarships and training. The curriculum is designed for Italian students to learn traditional fields such as scagliola (an intricate plastering technique), porcelain production, glass etching, cashmere and gold- and silversmithing. Locally made glassware and porcelain make an appearance at the hotel’s Kitchen & Bar. Dine on locally sourced cuisine in one of several intimate spaces, from the outdoor terrace to the glass-roofed courtyard.

WeGalavant Perks:

  • £75 food / beverage credit, breakfast daily, welcome amenities, access to Florence Fitness Gym, an upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

The Watergate Hotel

It’s no secret this DC icon has a rather colourful past. But the hotel’s history only adds to its allure. Retro touches — modular furniture, the well-placed pop of colour — combine with contemporary sophistication. It’s located right on the Potomac, which you can view from the Top of the Gate, the rooftop bar. Plus, the hotel’s within walking distance of Georgetown and many of the city’s top landmarks. It’s a glamorous, mid-century modern landmark in the heart of the action. 

WeGalavant Perks:

  • £75 hotel / resort credit, breakfast daily, an upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

Ko’a Kea Resort

There’s something magical about Kaua’i. Most of this verdant, green jewel is covered by rainforest; it’s no wonder the island is aptly referred to as the Garden Isle. The island is less busy than some of the other, more touristy Hawai’ian locales, and Ko’a Kea Resort reflects this laid-back, uncrowded setting. The luxurious boutique stay has ample activities for actively exploring the island — outrigger canoeing, surfing, zip-lining, helicopter tours — plus several onsite restaurants serving locally sourced cuisine and freshly caught fish. The spa, too, incorporates local ingredients. It’s the perfect way to unwind after a day of adventure. 

WeGalavant Perks:

  • £75 hotel / resort credit, breakfast daily, an upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

Carneros Resort and Spa

At this Napa Valley spa retreat, guests stay in charming stand-alone cottages, each of which comes with a private garden, outdoor shower, fireplace and heated bathroom floors. Savour farm-to-table cuisine in your cosy accommodations, or head to one of the several dining options on property. There’s the Hilltop Dining Room, with floor-to-ceiling windows framing the surrounding vineyards, FARM, for Italian countryside cuisine, and Boon Fly Café, for elevated takes on comfort classics like doughnuts and burgers. Save time for a pickleball match or two, poolside relaxation and onsite wine tastings.

WeGalavant Perks:

  • £100 hotel / resort credit, breakfast daily, an upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

Balboa Bay Resort

The original Balboa Bay Club, in Newport Beach, was a favorite of Hollywood A-listers like Clark Gable and Lauren Bacall. It’s no surprise why: the waterfront club was — and still is — refined and glamorous. Today, the resort retains its luxe, star-worthy touch. Rooms are airy and fresh, with nautical blue accents. The stellar concierge can schedule various activities to explore your surroundings, from kayaking and paddle boarding to duffy rentals, family beach days and museum visits. The outdoor recreation is prime, but if indoor fitness is more your style, a Peloton-equipped gym awaits.

WeGalavant Perks:

  • £75 hotel / resort credit, breakfast daily, complimentary shuttle access anywhere within two miles, an upgrade & extended check-in/out whenever possible.

The Frederick Hotel

New York is certainly not lacking in places to stay, but the next time you visit, head to The Frederick for a discreet, insider experience. The TriBeCa hideaway incorporates modern art and vintage details into its effortlessly sleek, cool aesthetic. Rooms are outfitted with towering ceilings, bespoke furniture and painted brick. Locals love the onsite Primo’s for after-work cocktails in a classic, low-key setting, while Serafina and its seasonal rooftop is great for casual Italian fare. The hotel is the perfect, stylish homebase for exploring the surrounding neighbourhood and the city’s other downtown haunts. 

WeGalavant Perks:

  • Exclusive rates & an upgrade whenever possible.
