“Fresh Picks” features the latest luxury properties admitted into the Kiwi Collection. Last week was white hot. This week is all about the blues. The happiest kind of blues, of course. Check out four hotels with close proximity to the sea that let you soak up plenty of turquoise tranquility.
Anantara Rasananda Koh Phangan Villa Resort & Spa
It’s red, white and blue—as in red umbrella, white sand and blue ocean—at this resort on Koh Phangan in Thailand. But there’s more blue for you. Each of the 44 villas have private plunge pools.
Get thee to the Greek Isle of Folegandros for a few different peacock-y Pantones. Most of the room may be bright white, but that’s just a backdrop to make the blue hues really pop, whether that be one of the cerulean Eames chairs inside or the azure Aegean Sea, turquoise plunge pool and blue sky outside.
Like lots of green with your blue? This eco-friendly resort is 45 minutes outside bustling Puerto Vallarta, yet a world away. Behind you is 250 acres of lush jungle, and in front of you, the lapping waves of Banderas Bay.
Seychelles Kempinski Resort
Seychelles by the seashore, that’s our kind of nursery rhyme. Overlooking the beautiful Baie Lazare and beyond that miles of Indian Ocean, this brand spankin’ new Kempinski resort also has that winning combination of blue and green. There’s even a, ahem, real blue lagoon.
