About the Item
Escape Hotel Stories takes readers on a journey to some of the world’s most stunning hotels, often located in UNESCO World Heritage Sites, while advocating the importance of preserving the environment. Each hotel or resort in this volume possesses a unique relationship with its surroundings, offering an escape into natural paradises spanning the globe: A ranch in the heart of Wyoming’s wild plains, eco-lodges on Easter Island or in Alaska, a mountain ryokan in Japan, luxury tents in the Australian desert. Mattéoli accompanies each travel narrative with references to inspirational writers and artists, many of whom were environmental proponents ahead of their time.
