High on a hill above the waves of the Mediterranean and the megayachts of St Tropez, perches La Réserve Ramatuelle -- a recently opened hotel that's already clawed its way to the top of spa aficionados' to-do list. The 23 bedrooms are all about chic simplicity, with bright, white interiors and floor-to-ceiling windows ushering in the sunlight while letting the ocean views take center stage.

There's a jet-set coastal feel here, with a destination spa and detox-friendly cuisine, but this sophisticated seaside sanctuary is still perfect for private getaways and relaxed tête-à-têtes. Order champagne cocktails for two and sink into a beanbag by the heated outdoor pool. Just don't forget your superstar-in-waiting sunglasses.
