CASA CUIXMALA, MEXICO
We don’t think we’ve ever seen anything more aesthetically pleasing than Casa Cuixmala. This private oasis is nestled along the pristine blue coastline of Mexico and truly is in a league of its own when it comes to luxury accommodation. Boasting stunning terracotta architecture with statement curves and arches, vibrantly-hued luxe bohemian decor and furnishings and the most dreamy infinity pool that sits just back from the beach, this eco-resort really is luxury at its very finest.
Four words. Get. Us. There. Now!
MAKELELE DOME VILLAS, LOMBOK
Nestled amongst the cliff faces of Lombok, Indonesia, Makelele Dome Villas look like something plucked from another planet! Sitting atop soaring palm trees and a sea of azure blue water, pristine views of volcanoes, dali-inspired architecture and a statement infinity pool, it’s no wonder this luxury accommodation has been coined the “Santorini Of Indonesia” Away from the chaos of the mainland of Bali, this quiet, luxurious oasis is our kind of hotel paradiso!
THE BANYA, MULLUMBIMBY
A new local haunt for ours and too good not to spotlight, this European-inspired space takes ‘bathhouse’ to a whole new level! Located just north of Byron Bay in the small town of Mullumbimby (and just a short drive from our HQ!) This bathhouse celebrates the social bathing culture of Northern Europe in a totally chic way with a bar and restaurant in tow. Every little detail has been thought of with this space- featuring the most incredible rattan furniture, statement check tiles, pool tiles, pops of blush and sage tones which bring such a calm vibe - this bathhouse really has it all. Find us poolside with a cocktail in hand and our girlfriends by our side.
MASSERIA GARZIA, OSTUNI
When every corner is pure heaven, you know you’ve found something truly special. Nestled in the countryside of Puglia, Italy, this rustic-chic, luxury retreat is truly magical. A hidden gem between the plain of ancient olive trees with panning lush green acreage as far as the eye can see with perfectly curated eclectic interiors, this private oasis with Spanish- inspired stone architecture is simply breathtaking. The photos really do speak for themselves. We’re checking in, ASAP!
SAGUARO HOTEL, PALM SPRINGS
We couldn't not put this kaleidoscope of colour into the mix! A renovated retro motel, turned rainbow hotel with sky-high palm trees lining the horizon, what more could you want? This aesthetically pleasing hotel provides all the photo ops. We can just see ourselves there now for Coachella weekend, cocktail in hand, living our very best life. A truly vibrant-hued paradise!
