There aren’t many places like Hotel Raphaël. Located just across the river from the Vatican, Raphaël offers guests boutique luxury accommodation in the bustling heart of the city. The lavish guestrooms combine modern comforts with classic architecture, with deep mahogany furnishings, statement artwork and chic en-suites.
However, the real piece de résistance at Raphaël is the terrace restaurant. Offering unmatched views of St. Peter’s Basilica, the beautiful terrace is the best place to sample the hotel’s organic vegan and vegetarian menu, which is inspired by traditional local ingredients and a passion for animal welfare and the environment.
Found in a small Croatian village, Hotel Balatura is sandwiched between scenic mountains and the beautiful shore. Boasting lovingly restored stonework, rustic wooden beams and simple but charming décor, this 300-year old former manor offers guests a rural escape away from the region’s tourist hotspots.
The hotel is run by a German-Croatian family who gave up their hectic urban lives in Northern Europe to resettle on the peaceful Adriatic coast. While vegetarianism is a core part of the hotel’s philosophy, family-life, tranquillity and culture are also key priorities, with regular events hosted by guest speakers.
The district of Friedrichshain in Berlin is known for its creative atmosphere, bohemian flair and modern edge – the perfect setting for the chic Almodóvar Hotel. Based on the principles of sustainability and respect for the environment, the hotel features natural materials in its clean and minimalist guestrooms, in addition to energy-saving technology and naturally-certified cosmetics. Rooms even come equipped with a yoga mat, so guests can clear their mind in the bustling city.
Additionally, guests will find only vegetarian dishes made from organic produce in the clean and inviting Bistro Bardot.

Cuisine also plays a significant role in the philosophy of 1711. Several different menus and meal plans are available, all adhering to the specialist Healtheatarian programme, which advocates a balanced vegetarian diet of organic produce and raw foods.
