Seaside Chic

I'm starting to get psyched about my forthcoming summer trip to Isla Mujeres, Mexico — 37 days and counting — where I rented a house with my favorite traveling gang to relax, sip on margaritas and have fun. That's why I'm in the mood for everything hot and sunny. Talking about hot, take a look at the gorgeous 5-star Hotel Sezz in the French Riviera. This St. Tropez oasis was designed by Christophe Pillet with exquisite and sophisticated taste. The rooms are almost small houses with private terraces and outdoor showers, and some even have private pools... How chic is that?

All the furnishings were specifically designed for the hotel, with a low profile to make the rooms feel spacious. “I wanted simple, elegant furniture, with a touch of the seaside resort. It had to be light, as if floating in space. Absolutely contemporary, with very clean lines, fine materials not flashy in any way. Furniture which has a clear place in history, in a particular period, and yet one that is timeless,” explains Pillet. The concept of the hotel is all about service and new experiences. They did away with the traditional reception desk. Instead the guests are welcomed by a personal assistant who plays host throughout their stay. Just my kind of place.
