On December 1st, 2022, Portrait Milano will open a brand-new destination in the heart of Milan’s fashion district. Housed in an architectural jewel dating back to the 16th century and opened to the public for the first time in history, it will combine Portrait's tailormade hospitality with authentic Milanese lifestyle experiences. Embracing the lively Piazza del Quadrilatero, the elegant, vaulted colonnade is animated by restaurants and bars, boutiques, a lush garden and a wellness center. Starting from the first floor, the private dimension unfolds: 73 rooms and suites welcome guests into an oasis of privacy and silence, enveloping them in timeless elegance, with the stylistic touch of Architect Michele Bonan who recalls the tradition of Milanese residences, with contemporary details inspired by Tuscan craftsmanship.
Just 27 miles east of Bali, the multicultural isle that serves as the backdrop to this sustainable resort has long lured the backpack brigade. SIWA Cliffs is a testament to the fact that Lombok, now a posterchild for eco-friendly tourism initiatives, like hikes that include path side trash removal, is more than a languid surfer's paradise. Resort guests can gaze at Gunung Rinjani, Indonesia's second-highest volcano, from their spacious pool villas (the property is comprised exclusively of two and three-bedroom residences), or opt to trek its summit, a multi-day pursuit that ends with a splendid sorbet-colored sunrise. SIWA's soothing and luxurious interiors, which pay homage to the jungle-clad surroundings, echo some of the intoxicating hues one might encounter on such a climb, while a dynamic onsite club rolls out weekly performances, showcasing the locale's best artistes and entertainers. As of early February 2023, SIWA Cliffs will be opening 11 Luxury Villas as part of their Phase I opening.
