As the leaves change and the crisp air creeps in, we’re finding ourselves wishing for summer once again. Read on to discover two beach hotels we’re currently dreaming of. 👇
OKU Kos (Marmari, Greece)
5 Stars | Website | Kos International Airport
100 | 1 swimming pool; Beachfront; Bar | 1
Tam Tam Beach; Asclepieion of Kos; Kos Castle
OKU Kosin Greece is a sleek, five-star hotel designed to make guests feel as if they are in a friend’s hip house; the only difference is that your friend’s house probably doesn’t have the multitude of luxe services the hotel offers. OKU Kos’ aesthetic is redolent of traditional Greek island architecture, while at the same time projecting cubist, contemporary, and minimalist dimensioned one- and two-story houses. Epicureans will adore Kima Beach Club, as it offers a seaside all-day menu that offers farm-to-table gastronomy, led by Greek Chef, Ettore Botrini. Our mouths are watering just thinking about the Greek-inspired breakfast — a spread with local fruits, yogurts, homemade granola, overnight oats, cheeses, meats, and pastries. At the end of the day, Aegean sunsets are best enjoyed while lounging – of course, with an Ouzo-infused libation in-hand — on one of the hotel’s beach-located sunbeds.
Azura Benguerra (Benguerra Island, Mozambique)
5 Stars | Website | Vilankulo Airport
20 | Spa; Beachfront; Bar | 1
Quirimbas Archipelago; Mozambique; Benguerra Island
Mozambique is having a moment, especially when it comes to its proliferation of beachside boutique hotels. When visiting the Southeastern African nation, opt to spend a few nights at the luxe Azura Benguerra. Fronting the beach on a secluded desert island, this hotel comprises 20 villas, each with its own infinity pool. Thatched-roofed edifices, a shoreside spa offering treatments using local tonics like African body butter and marula oil, plus delicious Portuguese-Mozambican restaurant Jelly Fish are just a taste of what you will find at this seaside haven.
Uga Jungle Beach (Trincomalee, Sri Lanka)
5 Stars | Website | China Bay Airport
48 | 1 swimming pool; Beachfront; Spa | 1
Nilaveli Beach; Large Pigeon Island Beach; Pigeon Island National Park
Located in a rural Sri Lankan village named Uga Jungle Beach, this hotel is a tropical pad that fronts a secluded beach. The stay is tangled in interweaving foliage and mangroves, spawning a castaway feeling that’s perfect for privacy-seeking couples. The treehouse-style restaurant and beachside Uga Spa are two other noteworthy splendors.
Marbella Club (Marbella, Spain)
5 Stars | Website | Malaga Airport
130 | 2 swimming pools; Fitness center; Beachfront | 5
Casablanca Beach; Río Verde Beach; La Fontanilla Beach; Puerto Banus
A Mediterranean staple storied back to the 1940s, which has hosted celebrities such as Brigitte Bardot and Audrey Hepburn, Marbella Club is an elegant, beachfront boutique resort that withholds a timeless whitewashed Andalusian village aesthetic. Spanish-style rooms, suites, and villas span the intimate property, rubbing shoulders with state-of-the-art facilities, including a fitness center, equestrian center, two swimming pools, and a nourishing spa.
Cambria Beach Lodge (Cambria, CA)
4 Stars | Website | San Luis Obispo County Regional Airport
28 | Beachfront; Pet friendly; Free WiFi | 1
Moonstone Beach; Arroyo del padre Juan; San Simeon Natural Preserve
Situated along California’s Central Coast between San Francisco and Los Angeles is Cambria Beach Lodge, a 27-key roadside coastal-chic hotel. California spirit runs through the veins of this stay — in its former life, before it became a higher-echeloned stay, it operated as one of the state’s quintessential U-shaped, chilled-out, surfside motels. Neighboring Moonstone Beach is one of the most secluded strand breaks on the Central Coast — guests will love strolling the coastal walking path in solitude or, if in the mood for a surf session, they can head to the sea and hang ten in privacy (with no witnesses for wipe-outs).
Le Barthélemy Hotel & Spa (St. Barts)
5 Stars | Website | Gustaf III Airport
44 | 1 swimming pool; Beachfront; Bar | 2
Grand Cul de Sac Beach; Petit Cul De Sac Beach; Lorient Beach
A ritzy 44-room hotel beside an azure lagoon, Le Barthélemy Hotel & Spa is a Caribbean haven on the island of St. Barts. Whether it’s sipping a cocktail at seaside bar, Le Turquoise, or taking a dip into the infinity pool overlooking the transparent waters of Grand Cul-de-Sac beach, the hotel is the perfect wintertime getaway (it’s not hard to understand why Paris and New York’s elite have been flocking to the island for decades).
Hotel Panamera (Tulum, Mexico)
5 Stars | Website | Cozumel International Airport
14 | 1 swimming pool; Beachfront; Bar | 1
South Tulum Beach; Parque Nacional Tulum; Las Palmas Beach
Hotel Panamera is the Tulum getaway you need in your life: thatched-roof edifices, striped lounge chairs, a red-and-white saltwater pool, plus ivory-white walls make up the aesthetic. Perfect for a nosh come sunset, the 14-key seaside stay also has an atmospheric restaurant and beach club.
Little Palm Island Resort & Spa (Little Palm Island, Florida)
4 Stars | Website | Key West International Airport
30 | 1 swimming pool; Spa; Free WiFi | 1
Bahia Honda State Park; Bahia Honda Key; Little Torch Key
This is America’s only private island hotel (no passport, no problem). Located in the Florida Keys, this domestic beachside escape hosts thatched-roof bungalows, a gorgeous restaurant, as well as an indoor-outdoor spa that’s inspired by Bali.
