Like great artists, these properties offer guests a philosophy and aesthetic that carefully reflects those of our tours. We’ve chosen hotels perfect for writers, ryokans for those interested in ceramics, and other properties that we feel will help you best unleash your inner creative.

Migiwatei Ochi Kochi Ryokan (The ``Wolverine`` Suite)

Ryokan, Japan

The Ryokan in the little town that inspired Miyazaki, and was the setting for Hugh Jackman's ``The Wolverine`` movie. Sublime and private stay overlooking a gorgeous harbor filled with private and sacred Shinto Islands. Please click here for more information.

The Tea Trails, Private Bungalow,

Dickoya, Sri Lanka

Set high in Sri Lanka's tea country, the Tea Trails is a private collection of Bungalows that offers guests both the best in luxury and story-telling. The area is home to some of Sri-Lanka's oldest private 'tea' clubs, used by the dutch and English, as well as some of its best cycling and hiking routes as you traverse isolated roads that encircle lakes and tea plantations. Highly recommended for clients who wish to travel deep into Sri Lanka's History, Cultures and get outside of major cities.

Sofitel So , Bangkok

Luxury Hotel, Thailand

This property skews towards younger or more night-life oriented clients, but it makes a perfect fit for jetsetters coming in from Singapore, Hong Kong or Shanghai who want to unwind, see some cutting edge-art and hang out with others who appreciate aesthetics and cutting-edge art and style. The property was designed by Thailand’s top five designers and world renowned fashion designer Monsieur Christian Lacroix (the personal stylist for Lady Gaga). It's hip, chic and cutting edge. A perfect pairing with our Bangkok Modern Art Tour! (Photo credit: The Queen and her Bling)

Topas EcoLodges

Eco Lodges near Hanoi, Vietnam

The Topas Ecolodges (both mountain-top and riverside) are among the most unique properties in Southeast Asia, and certainly among the most philosophical. Both are partnered with the local Red Dao tribes of northern Vietnam and both are deeply committed to both preserving nature, and helping to support the art, culture and way of life of the neighboring tribes. With their isolation from urban settings, great cycling routes, and numerous opportunities for genuine interaction with a unique culture these two hotels make a perfect addition to any Vietnam itinerary.

Book and Bed, Speciality Capsule Hotel

Tokyo, Japan

This is only for the most wormiest of bookworms, The Book and Bed is a capsule hotel concept that has taken over a bookstore, resulting in the perfect marriage between a place to stay and a place to read. The concept is quite simply a place for one to read all night, and then sleep between the shelves! For clients who love their Japan holiday with a sign of quirky, we highly recommend the Book and Bed!
