With more than 500 ravishing full-color photographs, Cool Hotels brings you to the best hotels in India, the Maldives and Sri Lanka. The super-deluxe establishments included here are all at the cutting-edge of hotel design and management. Each property has been hand-picked according to a set of criteria that includes a strong design aesthetic, architectural integrity, and a sense of individuality a million miles away from the cookie-cutter approach of chain hotels. Many of these properties have never been featured in guides before, and many have recently opened. Cool Hotels is the first in a series of hotel guides focusing on Asia. Ultimately these will be the definitive guides exclusively featuring Asia's finest places to stay.
