Would you rather whisk away to St. Barth’s, Hawaii’s Big Island, or The Bahamas? For all the island escapists out there, we’ve highlighted three unique hotels we love in each of these destinations to help you make your decision. 🏖👇
If you’re heading to St. Barth’s, we recommend a trip to Lo Sereno (@serenohotels). Located right on Grand-Cul-de-Sac Beach, the hotel is family-owned and -operated. It offers 39 suites, in addition to three large four-bedroom villas. Le Sereno sports a contemporary design with an understated décor that is laid-back luxury, all-the-while focalizing on the awe-inspiring views of Grand-Cul-de Sac. Rooms are constructed with sustainable woods and stones, delicately paired with restored Christian Liaigre furnishings. For lounging, we recommend the beachfront freshwater swimming (of course, with a tropical libation in-hand).
Located off-the-grid on Hawaii’s big island, discerning travelers should opt to visit The Inn at Kulaniapia Falls (@kulaniapia_falls). Set on 42 verdant acres adjacent to Hawaii’s largest privately accessible waterfall, the hotel is secluded; however, if craving a beach day and some vibrancy, Hilo and its beautiful strands are a short drive away. Accommodations are provided in several spaced-out, Asian-inspired buildings. Highlights of its make-up include The Residence, the inn’s largest suite; Jade Cottage, which boasts a private-covered lanai; Pagoda Guest House with its own kitchen, and the Harmony House with some of the best waterfall views.
Bahamian retreat The Island House (@the.island.house) is a luxe escape boasting natural topicalities like sandy strands, therapeutic sun, and crystal-clear waters. Additional to its private beach access, the hotel boasts splendors such as an arthouse cinema, three different restaurants & bars, a lap pool, and the esteemed Bamford Spa. Those who crave convenience will love its privileged location on the same island as the nation’s capital, Nassau, which hosts the country’s largest international airport.
