In the January sunshine.

The beach hotel

How about booking a getaway at the Mahogony beach hotel right on the Mediterranean? Built on a shingle beach, cut off from the world, the white building in which the hotel is located looks out on Cape Canaille and a magnificent navy blue sea. Totally uncluttered, calm and soothing, the 30 rooms in this safe haven are marvellous for decompressing and recharging your batteries - even for just a short weekend. What a delight it is on Saturday morning, after homemade pancakes and pastry served with a view to Cape Canaille, to stroll through the narrow streets and alleys of the village of Cassis, to go for a short drive on the Route des Crêtes, or to explore the adjacent coves by boat. At the end of the day, you can bask around the small pool before savouring the tapas prepared by the hotel restaurant. When you're served squid salad, cuttlefish risotto, and fresh calamari on the panoramic terrace, accompanied by the sound of the's almost paradise.


We especially like the quaint and so secret aspects of this place, so keep what we've just described to you to yourselves.


And the best of all - taking a solo dip in the transparent sea at daybreak.

A tropical refuge in the Bahamas

How about a candlelight dinner with your feet in the sand, a picnic on a deserted island, a dive with the sharks, or a swim with the dolphins? If you're looking for a bit of madness, intimacy, ultimate luxury, and service fit for royalty, Nandora is
the place for you! Located in an isolated beach close to the west end of the island of Grand Bahama, this sumptuous paradise combines the freedom of residential living with the tailored services of a five star hotel. With their own chef, their concierge, a masseuse, and their dedicated personnel this luxurious villa, sheltered from view by more than 300 palm trees, can be rented by the week for devine vacations with the family or with friends. During the day, if you feel like getting away from your oversized swimming pool or the beach, you can play tennis, enjoy the jacuzzi that overlooks the ocean, go sailing on a yacht, go for a ride on an ATB's, play golf (the 18-hole course designed by Jack Nicklaus is 5 minutes away), go diving or deep-sea fishing, or simply organise an exceptional outing with your concierge.... A dream.

We love this ultra-luxurious address because a private residence with impeccable services is something unique and invaluable.


The best of all - an Asian massage under the stars given by your private masseuse. / Nandana, Pine Island, West End, Grand Bahama / 877.220.0737 or 212.621.0350
