Dorsett Shepherds Bush is delighted to announce that it is the recipient of the prestigious International Architecture Award 2016.

Hilary Cross, the General Manager of the Dorsett Shepherds Bush Hotel commented "It is an honour to accept the International Architecture 2016 Award on the hotel's behalf. This accolade is a rewarding acknowledgement of the hotel design team’s dedication to creating a stylish city hotel that blends the best of the East with the West.”
The Asian British fusion is continued thoughout the hotel creating unity between its lively and inviting private and communal areas, resulting in dynamic spaces that provide a more  energised business and leisure travel experience.

The harmonious union of two remarkable cultures, through architecture and design, has been truly recognised in receiving this fantastic award.

Lexis Hibiscus - Port Dickson Malaysia
Lexis Hibiscus offers its customers two things which are the first of its kind in the country, a private dip pool and steam room next in the villa. 

There is something special about having your own private swimming pool, but having a private outdoor dip pool overlooking a sea right next to your bed is a whole different level.

That’s exactly what’s in store when you visit the Lexis Hibiscus in Port Dickson. The resort is not only popular for the serene comforts it offers but also for the ‘first of its kind in Malaysia’ title that it holds, referring to facilities offered.

The water villas are actually designed in the shape of a Hibiscus flower, and besides that glorious swimming pool in your “backyard”, the villas also boasts a private steam room right next to the pool.

Picking up from where Grand Lexis left off for having the most number of rooms with swimming pools in the country, Hibiscus — a product by award winning designers — also boasts things like a glass floor panel for that ‘floating’ effect and seawater viewing.


One of the top 8 rooftop bars in Washington DC
The rooftop bar here isn’t exactly new, but unless you were a member of the former Capella Hotel’s exclusive club, you wouldn’t have seen it. Now, the newly rebranded Rosewood Washington, D.C. has opened their chic Georgetown perch to the public. Craft cocktails come with views of the Washington Monument and the Kennedy Center. The infinity pool is still guests-only, though.
