    This 46-room gem is one of Sorrento’s oldest hotels. It was originally a 17th-century Jesuit residence, and opened as an inn over a hundred years later. Freud, Goethe, Hans Christian Anderson and other luminaries have stayed here. Today, guests can stroll among centuries-old cloisters, manicured gardens, ancient trees and fragrant citrus groves. Hotel Cocumella’s three restaurants marry tradition and modernity, showcasing ingredients harvested from their own organic garden.

    Fora Perks:

    • Food / beverage or spa credit, complimentary spa access, breakfast daily, an upgrade and extended check-in/out.

    Hotel Valley Ho

    For retro vibes, colorful decor and a playful spirit, head to Hotel Valley Ho. The Scottsdale escape is effortlessly hip, complete with several pools, a serene spa and a fun restaurant (plus legendary milkshakes). Lounge the day away soaking up the desert sun, cocktail in hand. On the weekends, DJs spin beats poolside. 

    Fora Perks:

    • A welcome amenity, breakfast daily, an upgrade and waived early check-in/late check-out fees.

    URSO Hotel & Spa

    URSO is a star among Fora’s community. The five-star boutique hotel is housed in a regal 20th-century building, steps from Chamberí, Madrid’s youthful, hip neighborhood. (It’s also a stone’s throw from Chueca, the city’s LGBTQ+ neighborhood.) The sleek spa incorporates products from Natura Bissé (a brand also used at the Greenwich Hotel’s Shibui Spa), and the spa’s water area comes equipped with a stylish pool and a hammam scented with eucalyptus steam. URSO’s array of restaurants, from the casual-yet-refined Lobby Bar to the fine-dining star Casa Felisa to the plant-filled Conservatory, incorporate locally sourced ingredients.

    Fora Perks:

    • $100 hotel / resort credit, a complimentary Spanish tapa and glass of wine, breakfast daily for two, an upgrade and extended check-in/out.

    Faloria Mountain Spa Resort

    The Dolomites are beautiful any time of year. And Faloria, located in the alpine town of Cortina d’Ampezzo, is an outdoor enthusiast’s dream. The hotel sits between the legendary 1956 Olympic ski jump (Trampolino Olimpico) and Mount Faloria. Spend the day actively exploring the surrounding alpine terrain, then retreat to your well-appointed room. Or, opt for a sauna session and holistic spa treatment — the best way to rejuvenate tired (and happy) muscles. 

    Fora Perks:

    • €90 hotel / resort credit, welcome amenities, breakfast daily and an upgrade.

    Palazzo Ripetta

    This centrally located Roman hideaway owes its chic, quintessentially Italian taste to Fausta Gaetani, a renowned Italian designer. (And Rome is one of the best places to stay in Italy, after all.) Seventy-eight rooms are bedecked with wooden floors, soothing jewel tones, well-placed pops of color and sumptuous fabrics, plus other delightful surprises. Dine at Etere Rooftop, a buzzy “open-air cellar” with a Mediterranean menu; Piazzetta Ripetta, an al-fresco spot perfect for lunch or an aperitivo; or San Baylon Restaurant, a handsome eatery focused on gourmet comfort food.

    Fora Perks:

    • $100 food / beverage credit, a welcome amenity, breakfast daily for two, an upgrade and extended check-in/out.

    Rivoli Boutique Hotel

    Rivoli Boutique Hotel offers casual, cozy charm in the heart of Florence. Staying here feels like stepping back in time. Indeed, the hotel centers on a 14th-century Franciscan cloister. There’s a secret garden and lovely courtyard perfect for indulging in la dolce vita, best complemented by an herbal tea (or aperitivo) and a good book. 

    Fora Perks:

    • €30 food / beverage credit, complimentary spa access and breakfast daily.

    Bravos is the invitation-only preferred partner program of Meliá Hotels International, a Spanish hotel brand whose properties are cool, stylish and boast a strong sense of place. Meliá selected a curated array of their luxury properties to admit into Bravos, and each property embodies that laid-back Mediterranean charm and Spanish way of life for which the company is known.

    Fora Perks (perks vary by property):

    • Welcome amenities, breakfast daily for two, extended check-in/out and a complimentary meal for two (only available for 3+ nights).

    Fora is also officially part of Noble House’s preferred partner program. The brand’s bespoke boutique hotels can be found across the US, as well as in Mexico, home to their Cabo resort. Each hotel is a reflection of its locale. Whether you opt for a beachside getaway in Miami, a ski resort in Jackson Hole, a hip urban stay in SF, a wine-country gem in Napa or an under-the-radar hit in Chatham, you’re in for a distinct personality and warm hospitality.

    Fora Perks (perks vary by property):
