(PS – don’t forget to check your Moon and Rising signs for even more excuses to discover even more destinations!)

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

The first sign of the zodiac is known for being a leader – after all, it’s first out of the gate. So why not lead the rest of the pack and head to the global metropolis that is London, and see what Hotel Café Royal has in store? Hotel Café Royal has been a historical leader in its own right, after all, considering the likes of pioneers including Winston Churchill and Princess Diana once called these hallowed halls a home-away-from-home. And as a fire sign, Aries wants to be ahead of the curve – so London is the perfect place for this bright spark.

Top tip for Aries: Hotel Café Royal’s new suite inclusions will match your passionate, courageous, and free-spirited nature. With a private, chauffer-driven Rolls Royce at your behest, as well as a litany of fabulous experiences including a dinner for two in your suite, laundered luggage by TUMI, and even a Royal Nanny-approved kid’s trunk, a stay in a Hotel Café Royal suite is one for the memory books – each and every time.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

As a Taurus, you’re fairly down to earth and practical. But you also know that working hard and saving hard means that you are prone to playing hard, and it’s hard to say no to playing hard else when you’ve got all of Shanghai at your fingertips. At The Middle House, the vibrancy of Shanghai is found in every corner, and this suits the steadfast Taurus exceedingly well. This electric destination is entirely practical as well, which Taurus will find utterly beguiling – Shanghai is a true city of modernity, with effortless technology, facilities, and amenities to make every Taurus fall in praise.

Top tip for Taurus: Design is in the lifeblood of The Middle House, so be sure to discover as much as you can when you visit this Chinese masterpiece. Piero Lissoni’s iconic staircase is just one element of this stylish House, with clever details littered throughout that denote a true attention to detail that any Taurus will relish in – as well as the sanctuary that is the Mi Xun Spa.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

An air sign that is pushed forward by curiosity and socialising, there’s also a duality to this sign. Which is precisely why The Upper House in Hong Kong is the ideal spot for these duality-loving individuals. From city views to island views, The Upper House itches the scratch that Gemini so desperately is looking to get rid of, with calming, effortless design juxtaposed against the hustle and bustle of this Asian epicentre for all things important. Plus, this House is one that treats luxury with the respect it deserves, where even the tiniest of details add to the experience.

Top tips for Gemini: No trip to Hong Kong is complete without phenomenal food. At Salisterra, as you overlook the stunning sights of the city, you’ll find a menu that sings to your tastes – no matter their kind. Be sure to settle in for the ride; you may not want to leave.

Cancer (June 20 – July 22)

Trust is key when it comes to Cancerian people, so it’s important to feel secure when you travel. Enter the Conservatorium hotel in Amsterdam. A beloved stalwart of the Amsterdam hospitality scene, the Conservatorium takes luxury and gives it a calming, relaxed attitude that is hard to distrust. Plus, with The Netherlands’ Best Hotel Spa at your disposal, you’ll find that your busy brain will feel the calming ebb and flow of the serene waters around you – perfect for a water sign like Cancer.

Top tips for Cancer: Taiko Cuisine is a beloved hotspot for Amsterdammers, so this is one restaurant you can trust. The flavours of the East and merged with the freshest ingredients from the local area, resulting in a truly trustworthy, mouthwatering experience.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leo’s are well known for being the most outgoing of the entire zodiac, and being exceptionally driven is a given for this feline sign. So when you’re as outgoing and as adventurous as Leo, there’s only one destination – Mexico. At Hotel Esencia, you’ll discover a whole new world, from baby turtle watching to the mysteries of the jungle behind your suite. But with so many other enticing experiences – private tennis courts! Helicopter transfers! Traditional spa treatments! – at your disposal, dear Leo may never want to leave the grounds of Esencia, hailed as one of the World’s 50 Best Hotels.

Top tip for Leo: Staying on the former grounds of an Italian duchess should hit your sweet spot from the moment you arrive, but with so many delightful dining options at Esencia, you may want to prepare yourself appropriately. Mitsura, Beefbar, and fresh seafood is never too far, so digging in need not stop at the sandcastles on the beach!

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

A deep sense of humanity underpins the Virgo way of life, with bundles of passion for every single detail in their experiences, whilst still enjoying a sense of simplicity and minimalism. Which means Chengdu’s The Temple House is sure to be on Virgo’s destination wishlist for 2024. In the heart of Sichuan province, The Temple House merges modernity with elegant Chinese simplicity, and Sichuanese cuisine is bound to make this earth sign’s heart skip a beat with its earthier, more grounded style of heat. Overlooking a courtyard is a divine way for Virgo to wake up, and the splendour of Chengdu is one they’ll relish.

Top tip for Virgo: The Temple House is just a stone’s throw away from panda reservations, where these symbolic black and white bears are truly revered. For the grounded Virgo, whose humility and passion for humanity of all kinds are a key characteristic, no trip to Chengdu is complete without a visit to these adorable panda pals.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Balance is key for Libra, whose sign is symbolised by the scales. Peace and harmony are at the cornerstone of this sign’s personality, and their preferences, which mean they’re all too willing to share life experiences with as many people as they can. Here is where Ultima Geneva steps in. A flawless residence on the shore of Lake Geneva, this villa is luxury personified, and perfect for the friendly Libra. As you summon your closest companions for a gathering of the greats at Ultima Geneva, you’ll feel instantly at home in this stunning escape.

Top tip for Libra: Don’t fret the small stuff – Ultima Geneva has been designed to meet your every need, including a parking garage on-site for your nearest and dearest’s flawless choice in vehicles.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

There’s an air of mystery about Scorpio, mostly because their ability to beguile and enchant has been well recorded over the centuries. And with Scorpio’s intense level of passion for all things in their life, there’s only one true answer to their top destination in 2024 – Le Grand Jardin. On this exceptional 13th century estate, expected the unexpected, with pure luxury conjoined with original fixtures and a lush garden that brings new meaning to “farm to table” dining. And on this entirely private island, Scorpio’s mysterious ways remain a mystery – except for those that they invite to this ultra-exclusive destination.

Top tips for Scorpio: Le Grand Jardin’s exquisite location on the Ile St. Marguerite makes it the perfect escape destination, but a short boat journey away lays the cinematic Cannes, a true marvel of the French Riviera. With a private boat transfer, you and your guests are bound to enjoy the very best of this coveted coastal hotspot.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Here’s the thing, dear Sagittarius, you’re the traveller amongst the signs. You’re almost always on the move in one way or another, which means just one thing – you are off to Beijing! At The Opposite House, you’ll experience worldly arts and cuisine, here in the capital of China, one of the most sought after destinations in the world for passionate travellers like yourself. From the rich cultural influence of Chinese dynasties to the ultra-modern approach to life China has curated, Beijing is a hotspot and should be top of your list.

Top tips for Sagittarius: For the luxury-minded Sagittarius, consider The Opposite House’s magnificent Penthouse suite. With stunningly bright interiors and the most sumptuous of woods, the rest of the city of Beijing will sing alongside this harmonious and auspiciously designed suite.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Oh Capricorn, you organised thing you! With your discipline and persistence, there’s really nothing that speaks to your soul more than being calm and reasonable, which is precisely why the serenity of the snowy peaks of the Alps call to you – both Swiss and French! At Ultima Gstaad and Ultima Courchevel, make the most of the ski seasons with aplomb, and have your itinerary perfected for you by their exemplary teams. But winter isn’t the only time to getaway to the mountains – consider the serene scenes of Ultima Crans-Montana and Ultima Megeve during the Spring and Summer seasons for picturesque sights that make you feel at home.

Top tip for Capricorn: Itineraries are your passion, but taking a break from them is important. Each Ultima destination in the mountains has a bespoke spa that can cater to your every need – including a regimented personal training session, if that floats your boat.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

This air sign is denoted by a love for freedom of expression and intellectual conversations of all kinds, from literature to the ups-and-downs of reality TV. Mental stimulation draws them in, which means the Lutetia in Paris is the perfect spot for these winter souls. Situated on Paris’ eclectic and artistic Left Bank, the greats of literature, art, and entertainment converged here in the past, and today it’s no exception. Plus, with views of the Eiffel Tower and the buzzing streets of the real Paris around you, your imagination will run wild in all the best ways.

Top tip for Aquarius: Don’t even think about leaving the hotel during your stay – the Lutetia is Paris’ only Palace hotel on the Left Bank, and for good reason. The Brasserie Lutetia is a veritable hotspot of who’s who in Paris, with Parisians flocking to it for the flawlessly composed menu. Plus, at Akasha, you’ll experience the many reasons it was hailed France’s Best Hotel Spa at the World Spa Awards…

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

As the last sign in the zodiac, Pisces is an amalgamation of every sign before it. Emotional, intuitive, and highly creative, you thrive near water (you are the fish, after all), but also when you’re surrounded by curiosities. Enter The Siam, a treasure trove of luxury in Bangkok, where the owner’s private collection of thousands of artworks, curios, and sculptures are littered throughout this elegant destination. Nestled along the main river of the city, you can go from hotspot to hotspot via the hotel’s private boat, and return each day to the comfort of your suite or villa, each one perfectly curated with different notes.

Top tip for Pisces: Sentimental as you are, souvenirs are the thing that fill your suitcase after a trip. Instead of things, why not go for an experience? At the Opium Spa, get your very own traditional Sak Yant tattoo, instilled on you by a master tattoo artist. Souvenirs are forever, after all.
