In the Mexican colonial town of San Miguel de Allende (pictured), artistic pursuits are a 24/7 affair, with conferences and festivals punctuating the calendar monthly. The Rosewood San Miguel de Allende (www.rosewoodhotels.com; from $295), a new-build puebla-style resort, endeavours to blend – cotto floors, hand-carved furniture and all – with its picturesque surroundings, and looks set to succeed in luring the well-heeled, largely American culturati who favour the town.
