Hotels from some of Expedia’s top trending destinations for February 

Grand Hotel Tremezzo, Lake Como Italy

You can’t get more luxe than this five star hotel on the banks of Lake Como in Italy’s north. With opulent suites decorated in signature Italian style, this historic hotel dates back to 1910 and takes old world glamour to a new level. The pontoon pool is definitely the spot to be – sit back and enjoy the view across the lake to the beautiful town of Bellagio and the Grigne Mountains.

Shangri-La Villingili Resort & Spa, Maldives

The Maldives is a destination so beautiful you almost don’t need amazing hotels. Almost. This five star property takes over water luxury to a new level. Sprawl out on the deck of your over water bure, dip your toes in the crystal clear ocean, or hop into your infinity pool perched on the water’s edge.

Phulay Bay, A Ritz-Carlton Reserve, Thailand

Beyond the bustle of downtown Krabi sits this slice of paradise on the edge of the Andaman Sea. With azure water on your doorstep and tropical jungle at your back, expect to stay in typical Ritz Carlton fashion – butlers, day beds, big villas and absolute bliss.

Peppers Airlie Beach, Tropical North Queensland

This hotel made headlines around the world when Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt chose to spend a few kid-free days at its peaceful grounds during their recent trip down under. Just a few minutes from the famous Airlie Beach, the luxury apartments look out over the Whitsundays Passage and are perfect for a few days in peaceful paradise.

Heritage Christchurch, New Zealand

When this historic hotel reopened last September, one more piece of Christchurch was put back together. It will never be quite the same, but the Heritage Christchurch has been carefully restored. In what was once the Old Government Building on Cathedral Square, the foundations are 100 years old. Like the rest of the city, the hotel is welcoming visitors back after emerging from the red zone cordon.
