This month, we’ve got a whole new host of summer-ready sanctuaries, including three island hideaways on Santorini: the seven secluded Aenaon Villas, the all-white Avaton Resort & Spa and the neutral-hued Kapari Natural Resort (below).

Another trio debuts in New Orleans, as we reveal the fruits of our first foray into Louisiana – namely, Soniat House, a colonial-creole townhouse in the French Quarter, International House Hotel, a white-columned bolthole on the corner of Camp Street, and Loft 523, a set of Italianate designer apartments. Up north in New York state, Capri joins us in the happening Hamptons.

In the UK, the grand old charm of Ellenborough Park caught our eye, an outdoorsy estate in the Cotswolds with 90 acres and a gun room to its name.

We also voyaged to Italy, calling in at lesser known Le Marche, a rural region that’s home to fairy-tale farmstay, Casa San Ruffino.

As for city slickers, we revisited Madrid and found two refined retreats in high-end Salamanca, both of which come with rather special dining options: Hotel Unico is home to the Michelin-starred Ramon Freixa, and Villa Magna (above) offers a Cantonese restaurant, as well as the elegant main affair.

In India, we found Aman New Delhi, our first design den in downtown Delhi, with a serene spa, regular art events and its own custom-cool auto rickshaw. Across the azure waters of the Indian Ocean, we fell for two romantic Maldives marvels on castaway atolls: Naladhu, an intimate, reef-fringed retreat, and Baros (above), a lagoon-luxe getaway with overwater villas.

Finally, we hightailed it to the heart of Bali, where view-blessed Viceroy Bali in a rustic Ubud valley took our fancy.

Next month we’ll be treating you to more stylish new stays, with heavenly hideaways in Mexico City, Turkey and Sri Lanka
