Enjoy Aegean Splendor at Susona Bodrum, LXR Hotels & Resorts
Susona Bodrum is named after a mythical mermaid in Turkish mythology and occupies a prime spot along Türkiye’s Aegean coast that is worthy of a sea siren. The resort’s white-washed buildings and crisp design makes the most of the water views. Frankie Beach Club & Restaurant is the heart and soul of Susona Bodrum, with DJ performances, handcrafted cocktails and the best of Turkish cuisine. Gather friends and family for a bespoke barbecue under the stars, or book a fishing expedition aboard the Susona Boat. For a break from the beach, unwind with a massage or hammam experience at Soul Spa, or enjoy a yoga session on the jetty.
Seclusion on the Bay at Mango House Seychelles, LXR Hotels & Resorts
Located on the island of Mahé and surrounded by the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, Mango House Seychelles is ideal for a secluded island getaway. This boutique “House” is the former home of celebrated Italian photographer Gian Paolo Barbieri and is infused with his character and artistic spirit. The property features spectacular ocean views at every angle, from the water-facing rooms and suites to the treatment rooms at the Anpe spa. Days will slip away relaxing at the beach or at one of the estate’s three pools. Looking for adventure? The onsite water activities team can organize an array of nautical experiences. Destination excursions can be organized by the guest experience team to discover Mahé and neighboring islands. Once the sun goes down, sip on a signature gin tea martini at Kokoye before enjoying Creole cuisine at Moutya or Japanese fare at Azido.
Caribbean Dreams at Zemi Beach House, LXR Hotels & Resorts
Zemi Beach House is tucked among six oceanfront acres along Shoal Bay Beach in Anguilla, voted #1 Best Beach in the Caribbean by USA Today’s Readers’ Choice Awards. Relaxation here takes a holistic approach, with activities on land and at sea. Options include deep-sea fishing, sailing and horse-back riding. For deeper unwinding, head to the 300 year-old Thai House Spa for an elaborate massage ritual or a cleansing hammam treatment. Toast the end of the day at the hotel’s Sunset Sessions cocktail event, and look out for the mysterious “green flash” that sometimes appears just below the horizon, a phenomenon caused by light refraction.
The restaurants, bars and lounges at Zemi Beach House feature fresh, seasonal ingredients in a contemporary setting. Stone showcases Oriental and Caribbean fine dining fusion and 20 Knots serves a Mediterranean-influenced fare, including grilled octopus and pizzas.
