TRIED & TESTED: FRIDAY NEXT AMSTERDAM

February 12, 2011

Karianne Vermaas went to Friday Next in Amsterdam and made some pretty pictures and wrote a report for Petite Passport – thank you!

Most striking feature:

‘Furniture! Be prepared to digest loads of styles and colors. This store & cafe sells pieces of Hay, Fritz Hansen, Established  Sons, CasaMilano and lots more.  In the back of the building the owners and interior advisors are working, while customers walk around the shop and others are sipping their coffee or tea at the Friday Next Cafe. Great for a lazy Sunday afternoon or to do some work; they offer free WiFi.  Heard there today: “I’ve never had a thing for coffee tables, but when I saw this one I was really confused…I would love to have it!”.’

TRIED & TESTED: THE VINE MADEIRA

July 15, 2010

My friend, and PR representative for FUSE Marketing,  Trees Korstanje likes to see the world. She wrote a report about the Blue Marlin in Ibiza two weeks ago and now she tested the Vine Hotel in Madeira – for herself but also a little bit for Petite Passport:

Most striking feature:

Their stunning panaroma pool on the rooftop. You’ll see Funchal (the capital of Madeira) and the sea. I love the daybeds by the pool who turned out to be multifunctional. After I ordered a Pina Colada by the pool I missed a sidetable but it was hidden in the chair itself. The use of black tiles in the pool is better then the white concrete they use in normal pools. If you’re done with lying by the pool you can move to the lounge area (see below) for an aperitif. Go to UVA for dinner: it was like we were dining in between the stars. Because of the height you’ll only see the lights of the city beneath.”

Rooms from 221 euro a night. Check out: www.hotelthevine.com

TRIED & TESTED: BLUE MARLIN IBIZA

My friend, and PR representative for FUSE Marketing,  Trees Korstanje likes to see the world. This year she went to Bali, Ibiza and right now she’s in Madeira. On Ibiza she did some sightseeing for Petite Passport: 

Most striking feature:

“The details. Why use lamps if you can hang some chandeliers in the trees? And the signs for the toilets are too cute: for the men Neptune – god of the sea – and for us women a mermaid. Buddha’s are all over the place – especially at the entrance. Two huge ones wait on your arrival. There is an active lounge system that depends on the money you will spend. For a simple beachbed you’ll pay 15 euro, for a huge daybed 100 euro (but you can use it with three friends).”

Thank you Trees!
