MALDIVES – PART 4: COCOA ISLAND

Cocoa Island is a paradise, a Garden of Eden, a Dream Island.

Once discovered by the German photographer Eric Klemm who was there to shoot a Playboy editorial, it is now part of the COMO Group.

Cocoa Island is an intimate private Maldives island resort with 33 overwater suites allowing you to slip right into the turquoise lagoon to explore an exceptional house reef. Encircled with powder white sand, the carefree, understated luxury experience includes holistic wellness treatments at COMO Shambhala Retreat, South Indian-influenced cuisine and worldclass diving.

What we liked most about COCOA ISLAND:
- It provides the ultimate escape, a harmonious sanctuary for mind and body.
- The villas – shaped like dhonis (traditional Maldivian fishing boats).
- The yoga classes.
- The delicious restaurant with the most amazing breakfast menu.
- The small size – in 10 minutes you can walk from one end to the other.
- The exclusiveness, privacy and peacful atmosphere.
- The very friendly staff – due to the small size they know you and your preferences short after arrival.
- The incredible beautiful sunset colors.

This is the perfect romantic hideaway for couples who want to spend a lot of intimate togetherness – it almost feels like it is your very own private island: www.comohotels.com

WIDDER HOTEL – ZURICH

The 5***** Widder Hotel could almost be a hamlet of a hotel. Nine historical former residences, many dating back to the Middle Ages, have been joined together to create an unusual hotel collaboration. The 42 rooms and 7 suites have emerged from this charming, luxurious labyrinth of a hotel one that many proclaim the best in all of Switzerland. We have rarely seen a place where old and new or better timeless beauty clash into a perfect symbiosis.

THE BAR
The well-known, cosy Widder Bar is the perfect place for a romantic date, listening to the sound of a piano player while sipping a well deserved whisky from their impressive range.

LOCATION
The Widder Hotel is in the centre of Zurich’s old town.

TAKE WITH YOU
Your fiancé. Your credit card. Time to enjoy life.

SMELL
Money & Whisky.

BEST
Beautiful design classics and paintings.

STORY HOTEL STOCKHOLM.

Bohemian Chic!

Some time ago we spent a night at STORY HOTEL STOCKHOLM. A hip, urban and excellent located place.

WHAT WE LIKED MOST:
THE LOCATION > in the middle of Östermalm which is the fancy district full of high end boutiques and fashionable clubs and bars.
BAR > the lively bar where you both meet locals and other inspiring travellers. DJ’s and/or live music Wednesdays through Saturdays.
BREAKFAST > Breakfast buffet is included in room prices and free wifi is as natural as hot and cold water.
WASHING PRODUCTS > by FACE STOCKHOLM
DESIGN > The interior design of Story Hotel is inspired by worn down New York restaurants and chic bohemian hotels in Paris, mixed with the spirit of the progressive musicians and artists that used to live in the building. Story Hotel is a personal and urban hotel with a jazzy soul – unmatched in Stockholm.
SHOP > Södermalm based vintage store, “Herr Judit” has found its way to Story Hotel. Tucked between Story Bar and Restaurant, the shop showcases a range of carefully selected vintage clothing, accesories and quirky curiousa for the home.
ART > Story Hotel collaborates with Wonderwall, a new kind of art dealer that showcases signed limited edition prints. You will find them throughout the hotel and guest rooms. Many of these are specifically crafted for the hotel. For more information on how to purchase prints, please check: www.wonderwall.se

Get yourself a GUIDE TO STOCKHOLM and enjoy the upcoming summer night(s) at STORY HOTEL, RIDDARGATAN 6, STOCKHOLM.
