1 Belmond Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons

Anglophile Raymond Blanc’s pretty 15th century manor, located in the Oxfordshire countryside, boasts gorgeous grounds, including an organic kitchen, Japanese garden, mushroom valley and orchard. The restaurant earned two Michelin stars when it opened 35 years ago – and it has retained them ever since. To accompany a colourful five and seven-course vegan tasting menu, featuring freshly grown ingredients from the hotel grounds, Raymond Blanc OBE has recently launched vegan masterclasses, offering a chance to explore the secrets of his adventurous recipes.

2 Société des Bains de Mer, Monaco

Set back from the hustle and bustle of Place du Casino in Monte Carlo, this Art Deco-style hotel boasts the highest number of Michelin stars of any resort in Europe. Le Grill (headed by chef Franck Cerrutti) was recently awarded a star, bringing the total up to seven. The hotel also boasts the first 100% organic restaurant to receive a coveted Michelin star, Elsa. Italian chef Paulo Sari’s responsible approach goes further: he uses the kitchen waste as compost for the restaurant’s own vegetable garden. Meanwhile, organic waste, towels and table sets are also recycled.

3 The Peninsula Beijing

Located a short stroll from Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City, this elegant hotel boasts the popular Huang Ting restaurant, which offers traditional Cantonese dishes prepared by award-winning Hong Kong chefs in a setting that recreates a Beijing nobleman’s courtyard home – think slate floors, carved wooden walls, antique furnishings, red lanterns and painted bird cages. For a different experience, check out farm-to-table-inspired international restaurant Jing, which uses organic, seasonable, traceable produce, where possible.
