Nobu Ryokan in Malibu, run by GM Janelle Eng, has 16 rooms (it is owned by Larry Ellison). It gives access to Malibu Racquet Club, a private, members-only club featuring eight fully-lighted outdoor hard courts, locker rooms with saunas and steam showers, and a fitness facility. Nobu Ryokan Malibu also works with CURE Spa to bring you onsite treatments – or take the courtesy car to the CURE Spa facility across the street. As an alternative, create-your-own stay experience with the help of the Malibu Fit Concierge whether it’s through yoga, or surfing, to stand-up paddling.

The Carbis Bay Hotel, near St Ives, Cornwall, is rumoured to be site of the G7 Summit which UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson  hosts later this year.  The hotel, designed in 1894 by architect Silvanus Trevail, is today owned by Stephen and José Baker. On 25 acres, which include the popular Blue Flag Beach, are perfect for exclusivity and keeping fit (and serious business meetings with the likes of Messrs Biden and Macron). Virginia Woolf stayed here in 1914, and later based To The Lighthouse on nearby Godrey Lighthouse – did she too enjoy the Laurent-Perrier that is today’s house bubbly?
