THE SUNSET SPOT: ROCK BAR, BALI, INDONESIA


The aptly named Rock Bar at Ayana Resort and Spa offers a photo opportunity like nowhere else in Bali. Perched atop a limestone cliff formation in the Indian ocean, this tourist haunt sets the mood for each spectacular sunset with softly-lit lanterns, signature cocktails and – more often than not – a world-class DJ behind the decks. Situated 14 meters above the waves, the 360-degree views from the open-air bar allow you to soak up the last rays of sun before it dips below the horizon. Paradise = found.

THE CITY HANGOUT:
ANNABELS, LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM


This high society hotspot welcomes only the crème de la crème of London’s finest thanks to its exclusive members-only policy. First opened in 1963, Annabel’s has played host some legendary parties (and guests) over the years and thanks to its re-opening earlier this year, the club has regained its notoriety as the place to see and be seen. The most ‘grammed part of the relaunch? The new all-weather terrace on the roof that boasts unrivalled views of Mayfair in an elegant and sophisticated setting.

The Romantic Hideaway:
Grotta Palazzese, Puglia, Italy 


If you’re looking for dinner with a wow factor – Grotta Palazzese won’t disappoint. Known for being a popular proposal spot, this romantic Italian restaurant is situated within a natural limestone cave along the coastline of the Mediterranean Sea. Seating up to 150 people, dinner is served come rain or shine along the winding terrace, which is protected from the elements within the natural shelter of the cave. Situated 74 feet above sea level, those with a fear of heights might want to book a table away from the cliff’s edge…  ​

THE A-LIST DESTINATION:
LE
GIRELIER, SAINT TROPEZ, FRANCE 


Decorated with crisp white and neutral interiors, Le Girelier might not be crowned as the flashiest St Tropez restaurant, but its marina-adjacent positioning allows it to attract an exclusively A-list clientele, especially during the summer months. The go-to seafood spot for millionaire yachtsmen dropping anchor on the French coast, Le Girelier is the perfect alfresco location for soaking up the luxurious, timeless atmosphere that only St Tropez can offer.

THE ARABIAN OASIS: AL SARAB, DUBAI, UAE 


A setting that is straight out of 1001 Arabian Nights, Al Sarab Lounge at the Bab Al Shams Resort in Dubai delivers an authentically Arabian experience. The open-air, two-level rooftop provides unrivalled views of the surrounding desert landscape, lit by candlelight and a blanket of stars overhead. Whilst you take in the postcard-perfect scenery, feast on a Middle Eastern mezze of food and keep an eye out for the wild camels and oryx that roam from dune to dune.
