Kiwi Experts: Bradley Cocks’ 5 Favorite Hotels

- Bradley Cocks, our SVP of Business Development for the Asia and Pacific region, has been part of the Kiwi Collection team for over seven years. Originally from Canada, he relocated to Sydney, Australia in 2004 and still resides there today.

Where in the world do our well-traveled Kiwi Experts most like to overnight? Every Thursday, a different expert dishes on their five favorite hotels of the moment. Time for SVP of Business Development and lead Asia Pacific curator Bradley Cocks (also a recent Mr Porter style council inductee) to chime in.

1. Nihiwatu, Sumba, Indonesia
This is my playground for extreme sports. And those would be: surfing (the wave is on the resort’s doorstep), fishing, trekking, diving and boating. This eco-resort cannot be replicated.
That’s Brad taking a left, no sweat, at Nihiwatu

2. Park Hyatt, Shanghai, China
I really find this hotel aesthetically pleasing, which in general I struggle with when it comes to modern architecture. It is hard to fault any component of this experience. A must-visit.

3. Moana Surfrider A Westin Resort and Spa, Waikiki, Oahu, Hawaii
When I’m here, I am always stay in the historic wing, surf four times a day, eat exceptionally fresh sushi and relax with drink-in-hand under the banyan tree.

4. Le Meurice, Paris, France
The number one location in Paris, if you ask me. An amazing restaurant, and ultra high-end clientele.

5. The Connaught, London, England
I stay here because I love the Mayfair area, and the hotel’s floor-to-ceiling windows provide fresh air and unobstructed views of the local neighborhood.
