Under the March Sun

Es Mares, the best kept secret in the Balearic Islands

Formentera is a Mediterranean island paradise.  We love the wild scenery, white housed villages, divine beaches and turquoise waters. In the heart of Sant Fransesc, book one of the hotel Es Mares’s 18 rooms that overlook the swimming pool or the village. With rooftop yoga classes, pan con tomate, manchego y jamon iberico for breakfast, you can also splash in the pool, or try the citrus essence facial or the cryorecovering treatment at the spa, or swim and siesta on the beach of your dreams with towels and umbrellas furnished by the hotel, or taste a local white wine while watching the sunset at dinner at Bona Espina. At nightfall, how lovely to stroll in the little lantern lit village streets while looking at the stars…


Why do we love it? Authenticity, wood, sandy colors and simplicity, the hotel Es Maris perfectly captures the hippy-chic style that we love.


Extra glow: The heavenly beaches are accessible in less than 10 minutes by bike, for a delicious blend of sport and relaxation…

Luxury in Costa Rica

Located on the incredible Santa Teresa Beach at the extremity of the Nicoya Peninsula, the Florblanca is a plush small luxury hotel with 10 luxurious villas, zen spa, XXL hammocks, exotic bar, delicious locavore restaurant, swimming pool, yoga and Pilates center, and the jungle. For adventure lovers the hotel can organize fishing trips to catch the evening meal, horseback riding along the Pacific coast, VTT excursions to Mal Pais and Montezuma, and surfing lessons. Fresh sushi, fish tacos, healthy salads and Costa Rican ceviche, the chef works with organic local ingredients.


Why do we love it? After early morning surfing or yoga, enjoy a fresh smoothie packed with vitamins and homemade banana bread for breakfast, with the sound of the waves and the spectacle of multicolored birds. La Pura Vida.


Extra glow: Book the surf house, a traditional beach house transformed into a beachfront luxury villa with bedrooms overlooking the ocean.
