The Wharf Birchgrove, built in 2009, is located on the site of a former shipyard owned by the Stannard Brothers boat building company, and sits directly above Sydney’s largest private wharf. Constructed in 1946, the 70m jetty was once a working wharf handling all manner of goods, and home to boat sheds and garages for ship repairs.

Anassa – with a name that means “queen” in archaic Greek, little wonder that the hotel is known as the “Queen of the Mediterranean.” And it does indeed reign, dignified and slightly elevated, located on a sensational private stretch of the coast between the small town of Polis and Latchi, a picturesque fishing hamlet.

This is how we tested it…

Located near Cascais, one of the most richest municipalities in Portugal, The Oitavos Hotel is only a 20 minute drive from Lisbon. One reads, on the hotel website, that the Oitavos seeks to “embrace rather than compete with nature,” and it succeeds in doing just that — the ambiance of the hotel seamlessly merges ultra modern interior design with the wild natural surroundings, including the lush Oitavos Dunes golf course and the rippling Atlantic oceanfront.
