After our lovely stay at the BE TULUM hotel we made our way to another little oasis: the Jashita Hotel…This eco friendly splendid Hotel was the perfect next step for our trip.
Run by an Italian, the hotel’s interior has an impeccable taste. Milly kept marvelling to how similar our place in Sardegna is. We simply loved it. From the beach area to the tea area, everything was beautiful. To not talk about the pretty rooms, all linen bed sheets, modern sleek bathrooms, and personalize pool area on terrace. Being less than 30 accomodations, you end up feeling like you are staying over at a friends villa rather than a hotel.
(THE NEXT POST WILL BE JUST ON THE ROOMS!)
We really think it would be alovely place to rent out for a party or with a big group of friends. Also they have a separate Villa just for that!
The restaurant of the hotel was absolutely delicious, with half a menu serving local dishes and the other half focussing on traditional Italian cuisine, we had some fabulous meals. Mily’s favorite was the Zucchini pasta! A Must try!
The beach located in an internal protected area gives on to a super placid sea surrounded by the reef. There you can enjoy different activities like canoeing and snorkeling!
We definetely want to head back here in the near future and bring along some more friends!

Sveti Stefan literally means Stefan’s island. It’s indeed an island you access via a long walk way from the main land. We were greeted by friendly staff and showed into our deluxe room by walking through quaint cobbled lanes.The room is in fact a fisherman’s ex-dwelling redecorated into a 5 star luxury resort room, spacious and comfortable with beautiful views of the sea. there is the main piazza where we would have breakfast and two churches.
The Aman has also an annex the Villa Milocer which was the queen’s summer residence. Three wonderful beaches and a pool. A new pool was under construction.
We dined under a pergola at the Queen’s Chair restaurant and were served wonderful seafood.
We think that the hotel was lovely although it still needs a little extra training for the staff to be at the height of the Aman Resorts reputation.

2 words: Cosy & Modern
The Viceroy in Snowmass is located 20 mins outside Aspen, this is an ideal location to spend the night. Having been there during summer, and loving it, I can only Imagine how one’s stay can be in winter. The rooms have a lavish mountain feel, each room accommodates a pretty glass fireplace and a faux chinchilla throw. The whole place feels super new, with a ultra modern bathroom that gives into the room. The only minus side of the space is that the glass divider bathroom to bedroom didn’t close on the sides, meaning that noise pollution was perceptible.
We really enjoyed our two nights stay in the studio room booked with www.wired.com which gave it a great value!

Now this is a super cool new boutique hotel which opened just two months ago and you can tell as there is still a scent of paint lingering in the air!!
The hotel is in West Hollywood on the corner of Melrose and North Hayworth Avenue in a nice trendsetting neighborhood filled with interesting venues and a short car ride to Rodeo Drive, the
Grove, Beverly Center and Sunset Strip. and The hotel does have a motel vibe about it, it has only 32 fun and contemporary rooms.
The Palikitchen, the hotel’s coffee shop only serves breakfast at the moment but is due to serve lunch and dinner by the month of May.
What I liked about this place is it’s decor, there is a particular care for detail… Bookshelves with old books are scattered around the hotel in common areas and in the bedrooms, Old photographs in pretty frames on bookshelves and vintage paintings of pretty ladies and elegant gentlemen. The predominant color palette is dark greens and mustard combined with greys and blues. I liked it, you shall too!!
