oberoiudaivillas.jpgTerry Knealing has dropped me a note to draw my attention to his top 10 choices for small luxury hotels worldwide over at   For the purposes of his list, small hotels are defined  as ones that  have less than 125 guest rooms and suites (so not necessarily all that small!) Here goes:

  1. Oberoi Udaivilas  – Rajasthan, India
  2. Le Sirenuse  – Positano, Italy
  3. Las Ventanas Al Paraiso  – Los Cabos, Mexico
  4. Amanjena Resort Marrakech  – Marrakech, Morocco
  5. The Setai  – Miami, Florida
  6. Chateau de Bagnols  – Bagnols, France
  7. The Milestone Hotel  – London, Great Britain
  8. The Wheatleigh  – Lenox, Massachusetts
  9. Ladera  – St. Lucia, West Indies
  10. Il Falconiere, Relais et Chateaux  – Cortona, Tuscany, Italy
