Decadent Escapes
DUTCH TREAT
Celebrated Dutch architect Piet Boon designed the 10 spacious villas with private gardens and Caribbean views at this boutique getaway on Bonaire. At Piet Boon Bonaire, guests choose between garden and seafront accommodations; each villa comes with a fully equipped kitchen—and private chefs are on call. From $642 nightly; designhotels.com


SOUTH BEACH MEETS VEGAS
The luxury, all-suite Delano Las Vegas opened its doors in September, bringing the brand’s South Beach glam to The Strip. The design teams at MGM Resorts International and Morgans Hotel Group evoke the Mojave Desert in the hotel’s public spaces—including the Franklin lounge, with its twinkling lights and gold accents. Rates from $119; delanolasvegas.com


LITTLE WASHINGTON GETAWAY
Chef/proprietor Patrick O’Connell has expanded The Inn at Little Washington with the recent unveiling of The Parsonage—an 1850s Victorian house that he has restored and converted into six new guest rooms. Decorated in collaboration with London designer Joyce Conwy Evans, the rooms boast fireplaces and English linens. Named for its proximity to Trinity Episcopal Church, The Parsonage is across the street from O’Connell’s legendary restaurant. Rates from $575; theinnatlittlewashington.com


SAVOIR FARE
Chef Daniel Boulud—the lauded French chef who started his career in DC 30 years ago—has returned to the District to open DBGB Kitchen and Bar. Designed by Thomas Schlesser, the casual French-American restaurant serves house-made sausages, gourmet burgers (including the Yankee Burger, inset) and Lyonnais-inspired fare. 931 H Street, NW; 202-695-7660. dbgb.com/dc


WEST-END DEBUT
Café Deluxe has opened its fifth location in DC’s West End, at 22nd and M Streets, NW. Designed by GTM Architects, the restaurant boasts dramatic lighting and a 38-seat bar, plus leather booths and mahogany furniture; patio seating is available in milder weather. Look for the same classic menu offered at other outposts. 2201 M Street, NW; 202-524-7815. cafedeluxe.com


HOLIDAY CHEER
The Blue Duck Tavern and Blue Duck Lounge at the Park Hyatt Washington are toasting the season with new fall cocktails. Among the handcrafted libations is Smoke on the River—a blend of Copper Fox Virginia Rye, Lapsang Souchong tea, lemon and yellow chartreuse. 24th and M Streets, NW; 202-419-6755. blueducktavern.com
