Yes Anna, season one is set in a Four Seasons in Hawaii and season two which is currently running is in the Four Seasons on Scilly. It’s honestly one of the best things I’ve ever seen. Fantastic cast, beautifully filmed, amazing scenery and darkly hilarious.

We stayed at that hotel, the San Domenico Palace, many, many years ago and long before it became a Four Seasons. It was a magical place and Taormina is a lovely town, quite high up above the sea, so great views and a cable car down to the beach that didn’t use to be that busy. Also memorable as Etna was erupting which wasn’t particularly noticeable save that our white hire car was covered in ash in the mornings and having amazingly been allowed to walk around the volcano, we then went to dinner nearby and as it got dark, the black mountainside was suddenly all red.

I don’t know what the story is of White Lotus and whether it shows the FS in a good light, but on my way to MEX last month I watched Narcos Mexico, which is based on a true story, and was really surprised to see a meeting between drug lords and corrupt politicians in the bar (and at my table!) of the “Hotel Grand Mexico” which was actually very clearly the Four Seasons which has a distinctive architectural design.
