One of my favourite hotels in Europe is definitely Villa Kennedy Frankfurt by Rocco Forte Hotels. The carefully restored Villa Speyer, originally built in 1901, is the prefect sanctuary in this busy European financial metropolis. The incomparable brother and sister duo extraordinaire Sir Rocco and Mrs Polizzi stand guarantee for 11 hotels with a unique location, an understated elegance and you feel at home.
Eat, drink and enjoy the splendiferous Spa and indoor pool to unwind and relax. Now Frankfurt may not be high on your city break list but the hotel will welcome you with open arms for the Holidays with a joyful merry dinner and a sparkly brunch. A festive collaboration with ETRO will submerge your stay in vivacious colours and luxury with their beautiful kimonos for her and him, a gift.
After a dip in the blissful pool, a good steam and an amazing 60-minute surrender massage, all I want is a healthy room service meal and relax. I was not be disappointed! Madeleine Shaw, nutritionist and successful health blogger, has created several healthy dishes and sublime cocktails for guilt free indulgence. I had to try the “50 shades of green”: quinoa burger with avocado, tahini dressing, pumpkin seed pesto and courgettini salad. It was super delish! I could not resist trying her Earl Grey Hot Toddy with blossom honey, the perfect nightcap.
The Gusto restaurant by Chef Dario Cammarata serves exquisite Italian cuisine. I totally love the lunch menu based on a seasonal ingredient. This week it’s pomegranate and the venison stew with pomegranate and polenta was absolutely divine!
Der Feinschmecker, Germany’s top food magazine, listed Dario’s chefs table as number 5 best in the world. A kitchen table that seats 8 friends or total strangers but rest assured the exquisite food and kitchen experience will bring you together.
The JFK bar has a New York City vibe to it. The bartender will gladly shake things up for you but if you prefer a bubbly, they have several great Champagnes for you to sip at leisure.
The perfect weekend get-away :
Looking for a relaxing, totally disconnecting and winter- blues-chasing sanctuary, this is it. Book the Relax-ourish weekend experience for 2 or just have some me-time.
The perfect Friday night out :
Live Jazz music, scrumptious food, festive cocktails and great times assured.
