Not everyone is the biggest fan of winter. Of course, there are those who love it when the days start getting shorter and firewood must be chopped, but for the rest of us, we’ll take a little bit of sweat and a whole lot of sand over parkas and hot chocolate any day.
So for those who prefer Piña Coladas and barefeet over mulled wine and snowshoes, join Design Hotels™ for a showcase of four winter warmers.
Hotel Escondido, Puerto Escondido, Mexico
Hit the beach and catch some waves at the Hotel Escondido in Mexico. Nestled on the Oaxacan coastline, this resort boasts some of the best surfing in the world. The 16 traditional Mexican beach huts spread out over 500 meters of pristine beachfront property all have their own private pools and chill-out areas. Rounding out the surf and sun are the exclusive beach club and underground bar, hotspots for surfers and sunbathers alike.
QT Sydney, Australia
While Europeans are huddling together for warmth, Australians are slathering on sunscreen. QT Sydney, located just 15 minutes from Bondi Beach, is a glamorous 200-room hotel set in the heart of Australia’s largest metropolis. It features an award-winning spa, world-renowned bar and restaurant, and a design philosophy that embraces both the old and the new, resulting in an experience that transports guests far away from the doom and gloom of the winter months.
Bohemia Suites & Spa, Gran Canaria, Spain
Surrounded by the breathtaking volcanic beauty of Gran Canaria, Bohemia Suites & Spa is a modern oasis. Composed of 67 meticulously appointed rooms, a panoramic rooftop restaurant, and a custom-built spa, this sun-drenched resort operates in a state of perpetual summer. Guests will feel as if they’re staying with old friends, as the intuitive service and helpful staff fulfill their every request.
Piet Boon Bonaire, Carribean
Set along the waterfront of Kralendjik, Piet Boon Bonaire is a collection of nine individually styled villas in the heart of the Caribbean. Designed by internationally lauded architect Piet Boon, these ultra-spacious and expertly crafted beach villas have their own private gardens and breathtaking views out over the sparkling Caribbean Sea.
