Designer: Karl Lagerfeld
Location: Hotel Metropole in Monte Carlo
A new 60-foot-long poolside photographic mural created by Lagerfeld has given the grande dame of Monaco hotels a new inspiration: the myth of Odysseus. The Grecian-focused redesign extends to the terrace, the gardens, and the hotel's third Joël Robuchon restaurant.
Price: Starting at $960/night.

Designer: Christian Lacroix
Location: Sofitel So The famed designer deploys his vibrant palette in this new outpost of the hip luxury hotel with a series of mobile artworks in the lobby. He also created the staff's uniforms, a fresco-filled 25th-floor lounge, and multicolored textiles and amenities in all 238 rooms.
Price: Starting at $165/night.

Designer: Antonio Citterio and Patricia Viel
Location: Bulgari Hotel in London
The hotel, designed by frequent Bulgari collaborators, includes a silver-colored bar that pays homage to the brand's silversmith heritage—and makes a great resting place for an Au thé Vert, a gin-and-tea drink that references the iconic Bulgari fragrance.
Price: Starting at $750/night.

Designer: Diane Von Furstenberg
Location: Hayman in Hayman Island, Australia
The 1,730-square-foot DVF Penthouse on the private-island destination adjacent to the Great Barrier Reef is decked out in the designer's signature boisterous fabrics, but the stone bathtub and oversize Hansgrohe showers are in sexy neutral tones.
Price: Starting at $4,595/night.
