Grace Hotel Santorin, Greek
The Grace Hotel Santorin, which belongs to the Auberge Resorts Collection, has a special charm: it was carved out of the island’s rock and fascinates with its minimalist white-blue buildings lined up along the cliff. Its architecture is known as the archetypal building style of the Greek island worlds. The lagoon-like infinity pool offers an incomparable panoramic view of the Cycladic caldera, which is partially submerged in the sea. At 363 meters above sea level, the Champagne Lounge is just the right place to watch the blue Aegean turn into a golden sea at a picturesque sunset. Moments like these create memories you want to capture and share with your loved ones. With the app Postando, vacationers can send this breathtaking scenery quickly and easily in the form of a real postcard. Up to six smartphone snapshots can be easily uploaded to the postcard app to personalize the back of the postcard and share the beautiful scenery with friends and family.

Ahwahnee Hotel, USA
In the heart of Yosemite National Park in the Californian Sierra Nevada, the luxurious Ahwahnee Hotel surprises with a strong contrast to the monotonous everyday life. The central park location makes the hotel a popular accommodation for active vacationers and adventurers. Named after the local Indian settlement, “Ahwahnee”, it blends harmoniously into the natural surroundings with a granite façade and rustic wooden elements. The hotel offers phenomenal views of the iconic sights of the National Park: The “Half Dome”, an impressive rock formation and the “Yosemite Falls”, which are among the highest waterfalls in the world.

Kayumanis Ubud Private Villas & Spa, Indonesia
Not far from Bali’s cultural capital Ubud, the intimate oasis of peace Kayumanis Ubud Private Villas & Spa is located in the heart of a mystical highland region. Surrounded by blossoming flowers and cinnamon groves, guests are invited to indulge in a variety of spa treatments and learn about the fine Balinese cuisine in a cooking class. One of the resort’s highlights is the infinity pool, which visually blends in with the deep green expanse of the surrounding tropical rainforest. From there you can watch the gently flowing Ayung River, which radiates an incredibly calm and comfortable atmosphere and rounds off the view of the magnificent jungle scenery.

Soul Collection Penthouse, South Africa
One of the most spectacular accommodations in Cape Town is located on the 17th floor of the Horizon Bay building on Table Bay Beach: The Penthouse of the Soul Collection. From this elevated position, you can admire the city’s imposing landmark – Table Mountain – whose striking plateau-shaped silhouette stands out against the orange-tinted morning and evening sky. The glass fronts of the penthouse allow an undisturbed view of the Atlantic Ocean and the surrounding miles of sandy beaches. This region is a hotspot for adventurous surfers who dare to jump on the waves towering meters high – such a scenery is often captured by the viewers on the beach in a video. With the smart app from Postando, you can then share the experience you have just captured with friends and family: Simply use the Postando app to select the desired postcard motif and greeting text as well as the previously recorded video from the media library or record a video directly via the app. The video message is then printed on the postcard with an individually created QR code and can be easily scanned and viewed via the recipient’s app.

PARKROYAL COLLECTION on Pickering, Singapore
For big city lovers, the luxurious hotel, PARKROYAL COLLECTION on Pickering, in the island state of Singapore is just the right place to relax. With its futuristic architecture, which is characterized by glass and green exterior facades, this hotel enhances the centre of Singapore. The term “urban jungle” takes on a whole new meaning with the view from this hotel: A total of 300 meters of planted jungle landscape are spread over six balconies, behind which the skyline of Singapore unfolds. The colourful cabanas at the edge of the infinity pool create a comfortable lounge atmosphere and invite you to relax and enjoy local delicacies.
