In 2001 real estate entrepreneur, David Stein, set out to create an exclusive collection of luxury lifestyle hotels throughout Europe beginning with the Gran Hotel Son Net. Originally the home of Mr Stein, this luxury Hotel located in Mallorca holds 24 luxurious bedrooms and suites adorned with the finest furnishings and works of art from some of the world’s most well renowned artists such as Andy Warhol, Marc Chagall, and David Hockney to name a few.

The recently opened Casa Angelina, located on the Amalfi Coast, is another example of the contemporary charm and luxury that The Stein Group has strived to deliver to its’ guests. The simple, classic design delivers an ambience of soothing luxury – without distracting from the awe-inspiring view of The Amalfi Coast that surrounds it.

But the Jewel in The Stein Group’s crown is undoubtedly the Villa Mangiacane that is located just 12 kilometres from the lovely city of Florence where this resplendent 16th century villa houses stunning frescoes by Vasari, and features more than 6000 olive trees that are spread throughout the exquisite grounds.

If you are looking for a luxury boutique hotel on the French Riviera, Château Eza, with its’ Michelin-starred restaurant, is tucked away in Eze, in one of the most charming locations on the Côte d’ Azur. The 12 intimate rooms and suites of this 400 year old Chateau, also a former residence to a Swedish Prince, offer epic vistas over the coast from private terraces and balconies in what has is one of the most stunning hotels on the Côte d’ Azur.

The Stein Group hotel collection also houses some of the finest dining experiences that Europe has to offer. Their Restaurant L’ Orangerie, located in Barcelona, is a well loved dining location amongst locals due in part to the restaurant’s passion for preparing fresh, fit for a king cuisine, prepared from locally sourced ingredients.  Or if you desire a luscious dining experience with a dazzling view, the Restaurant Mandarine offers an unique east meets west menu that can be enjoyed overlooking the surrounding harbour, where guests can get an up close and personal view of some of the world’s most majestic yachts.

This stunning collection of exclusive five star hotels in magical locations throughout Europe, north Africa and the US are designed to cater for both jet-setters and local guests alike – and Travel buyers looking for the perfect balance between luxury and charm will do well to look to the Stein Group for their next booking.

We look forward to getting to know more about this luxury brand at the end of this month as we welcome them at our next Connections Luxury event in Beijing.  If you would like to enquire about participating in an event yourself, do drop me a note at
