Yesterday we were selected to take part in a backstage tour of the international luxury lifestyle hotel, SO/Auckland, which opens its doors on 1 November. One of only seven hotels world-wide, SO/ is here to shatter norms and with renowned Kiwi fashion innovators WORLD on board as the signature design partner you can forget the traditional uniforms, artwork, wallpapers and soft furnishings.
If distinct room themes, bold event spaces, world-class day spa, complimentary non-alcoholic minibar and chic rooftop bar aren’t enough to capture your interest, then perhaps the French inspired Harbour Society restaurant will. The contemporary 15th floor eatery is helmed by French chef Marc de Passorio - former owner of Michelin-starred restaurant, L’Esprit de la Violette.
Whether for high end groups, incentives, getaways and even meetings, we think SO/ Auckland is set to become the city’s hottest destination for locals and visitors alike.
Found in the heart of Mumbai, the Bandra–Worli Sea Link is a work of art, and one of the only bridges in the world that can proudly say the amount of steel wire used to bring it to life is equal to the earth’s circumference. Another fun fact about India's capital city: Its name changed in 1996 from Bombay to Mumbai, which was inspired by the patron goddess of the fishing community. (📷: @thugbong 📍: Mumbai, India)
