In celebration of its 15th anniversary, Mr & Mrs Smith, the travel club for hotel lovers, is returning to its publishing roots with the publication of Mr & Mrs Smith Presents: The World's Sexiest Bedrooms (Thames & Hudson, November 13, 2018). This stunning book features 35 supremely seductive suites, shot by in-demand art photographer Polly Brown, chosen for her flirtatious and playful style.
Cozy country hideaways, canopy-covered safari lodges, cliff-clung island perches—this book compiles honeymoon-worthy hotels of every shape and size. There are old classics, new loves, passion projects, and statement stays from the Cotswolds to the Caribbean, from Paris to Phuket. Each spread pairs Polly’s photographs—more than 200 in total—with an ode to the room’s romantic allure, an insider guide to the hotel and the local area, and a quote from whichever tastemaker had the hard task of staying there to double check its cut-above credentials. Featured reviewers include pajama queen Olivia von Halle, skincare pioneer Matthew Malin, and luxury travel writer Lucinda Paxton.
“We launched our first guidebook in 2003 because we were so tired of traditional hotel guidebooks,” says Mr & Mrs Smith co-founder Tamara Lohan. “In much the same way, travel photography today has become so similar and we were desperate to do something disruptive. Thankfully we met the brilliant Polly and this beautiful book was born.” James Lohan, Tamara’s husband and Mr and Mrs Smith co-founder, adds: “We wanted to mark our anniversary in the best way we knew how—by paying tribute to the most romantic rooms we’ve discovered in proper, unputdownable print. We hope it inspires another 15 years of Do Not Disturb sign-hanging and raises a few eyebrows…”
As a bonus, each copy of the book includes a $40 Mr & Mrs Smith voucher to redeem against any stay in its hotel and villa collection.
