MY 5 FAVORITE HOTELS

July 13, 2016

Summer is all about sun kissed skin, salty air and sunny afternoons. And better yet if they’re spent on the grounds of a stunning hotel. Of all the hotels I’ve stayed at, a couple have really left an impression. So if you’re itching for a sunny escape, consider my five favorite spots.

Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc (Antibes, France)

A long hedge-lined entrance leading to the grande façade. The Hotel du Cap oozes classic French luxury. It’s something out of a Carey Grant movie. But it’s the restaurant that really won me over. A glass of local rosé and an incredible meal along a Mediterranean sunset? Yes please.

One & Only Palmilla (Palmilla, Mexico)

Located just outside of Cabo, the One & Only Palmilla may be the winner out of this list. The staff combines unprecedented luxury with warming hospitality. Each guest has their own personal butler, and they really go above and beyond to make you feel special—accommodating you with things you didn’t even know you needed. Or wanted. The resort is open and airy, with massive beachside rooms and a stunning infinity pool.

Le Cap Estel Hotel (Èze, France)

Built in 1899, this stunning hotel is a landmark. It sits on the edge of a cliff in Èze, a charming hilltop town on the Côte d’Azur. With stunning rooms, award-winning dining, and whitewashed balconies with endless ocean views—this hotel is a dream. It’s also just a quick drive away from Monte Carlo, Nice, and every other charming town along the French Riviera.

Four Seasons Resort Punta Mita (Punta de Mita, Mexico)

You may remember my blog post about this one. The hotel is nestled in the middle of a tropical rainforest. So you wake up to the sound of the birds, stroll out of your airy casita, head down to the beachside cabanas, and crack open a fresh coconut. Heaven? Pretty damn close.

The Gansevoort Dominican Republic (Playa Imbert, DR)

I associate the Gansevoort with its New York City location that I wouldn’t be caught dead at on a Saturday night. But this new location in the Dominican Republic is much different. There’s an intimacy to the hotel. Like you’re staying at your really rich uncle’s house. The hotel rooms are basically trendy apartments, with a private pool and fresh fruit plates delivered every morning. The staff knows you by name, and going to the restaurant feels like a dinner party. The manager had picked up on the fact that we’re lobster fans, so he picked out four fresh lobsters from the ocean just for us.
