Antalya, Turkey

WHAT: Turkey's first dazzling designer hotel.

WHERE: In Turkey's southern Mediterranean coast, near the bustling city of Antalya.

WHY: This big and bright hotel designed to amaze the eyes and delight the body, is altogether a symphony in white – including its 294 all-white rooms with views of the sea and the Taurus mountain range. All except for the blood red Kirmizi basement restaurant serving a buffet of Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine. For pleasure seekers there are an elegant and sybaritic hammam, a spa, and the possibility of a swim with dolphins in the pool, three times a week.
