TRIED & TESTED: AZULIK MEXICO

April 27, 2011

Most striking feature:

This is a true honeymoon resort. You won’t find much on the resort except for a couple of villas. Made out of wood. A simple terrace. An outside tub made of wood. A stunning view over the ocean. And a relaxing loungebed/hammock on the terrace. It’s just you and your lover. And that’s how we like it!

From 180 euro per night. Check out: www.azulik.com

NEW SPOT: CASA DOS CHICOS SAYULITA

March 24, 2011

3 reasons to go there:

  1. With 8 friends – it’s a rental villa.
  2. If you win the lottery and want to celebrate that fact with your friends (so you fly them all in).
  3. If you like the sounds of a tree top jacuzzi with views of the ocean…

From 1300 euro per week. Check out: www.casadoschicos.com

FIRST VIDEO ON PP

February 22, 2011

I want to make some video’s of my trips. Starting with London in about 2 weeks. This is a short video I’ve made in Playa del Carmen, Mexico of Basico. This is their lovely rooftop terrace. What do you think? Good idea or not? And do you want to see me in front of the camera? Or only interior?

TRIED & TESTED: BE TULUM

November 18, 2010

Most striking feature:

Can we change that question in: ‘where do you want to go on a lovers trip?’ I’ve to admit that this is the most romantic spot I’ve seen during my trip to Mexico in March. Tulum consists of a strip of hotels – all directly on the beach. The more you drive to the south, the more beautiful the hotels (and the beach looks more unspoiled and the water even more clear). I didn’t stay at Be Tulum (I visited Mexico with two girls and this is more a place to go with your boyfriend), but we had dinner in their lovely restaurant. The service is superb – and the strawberry dessert we tried was delicious. The rooms were pretty, spacious and all included a plunge pool.

(I used the professional photos of Designhotels.com where you can book this hotel, the photo at the bottom is mine)

From 284 euro (2 nights), check out: www.betulum.com

NEW SPOT: CONDESA DF MEXICO CITY

October 13, 2010


3 reasons to stay here:

  1. Because it’s a favorite of Eva Longoria (another celeb who travels in style).
  2. Look at the lamps above the bar… don’t you wanna sip on a cocktail over there?
  3. But it’s hard making a decision where to sit, because their rooftop looks great as well.

From 180 euro per night. Check out: www.condesadf.com

September 11, 2010

NEW SPOT: LA PURIFICADORA MEXICO

August 26, 2010

3 reasons to stay here:

  1. Because¬†you’ll find¬†one of the most beautiful swimming pools in the world – on the 3rd floor. With excellent views over the city.
  2. If you like a bit of history. The building dates from 1884 – the color purple is used because it’s the color of the Bishop.
  3. If you like food: the chef of the restaurant worked for Pujol in Mexico-city.

From 122 euro per night Check out: http://www.lapurificadora.com

TRIED & TESTED: PLAYA AZUL TULUM

August 5, 2010

Most striking feature:

The rooms. They’re wonderful. That’s because of the tadelakt on the walls and floor and the huge drawing on the wall. You have a little terrace for yourself (including a hammock ofcourse). The bathroom is open. And that can be a problem (especially if you’re travelling with a photographer and stylist like I did) because you want some privacy if you really need to go to the toilet. But that’s a common thing in the Riviera Maya. One tiny bit of negativity: the restaurant is awful. You will wait hours for the food to come and then it’s raw or cold. So prepare yourself and go somewhere else.

From 85 euro a night. Check out: www.playaazultulum.com

NEW SPOT: BOCA CHICA ACAPULCO

July 28, 2010

3 reasons to stay here:

  1. Because they have pink pool chairs – and that’s something every girl loves.
  2. Because the whole atmoshphere (from the outside bar to the swimming pool) feels like you’re in a filmset of the 50’s.
  3. Because every room has it own hammock. We have to say that’s quite common in Mexico, but still… love it!

From 73 euro a night, check out: www.hotel-bocachica.com
