Aberdeenshire, UK

Since opening in 2018, The Fife Arms has been the place to stay in Scotland. A Braemar landmark in the Scottish Highlands, this 19th-century former hunting lodge is famed for its extravagant interiors. Manuela and Iwan, founders of leading art gallery Hauser & Wirth, fell under the property’s spell in 2015 and have meticulously restored it to its former glory. The hotel has a gallery-size collection of artworks (around 14,000 pieces) from Pablo Picasso, Lucian Freud and Man Ray; special commissions and historical furnishings (such as the 19th-century carved fireplace that depicts scenes from Robert Burns’s work) to create a soul-stirring sense of place. Each suite has its own distinct decor and specified inspiration; the Indian Suite is an opulent extravaganza inspired by Abdul Karim, an attendant and dear confidant of Queen Victoria. The one-bedroom suite has an ornate fireplace, plush tweed furnishings and antiques (the writing desk overlooks the village).
