- Hong Kong,
- Boutique Travel,
I am a wannabe surfer, boutique hotel fanatic and lover of organic wine enjoyed outside.
GNV for convenience, LGA for everything else.
My travel style
I love the mix of high and low travel, staying at boutique hotels that have personality and comfy pillows, as well as immersing myself in the local life. Preferably somewhere close to a body of water to swim in. Always ending the day over a delicious dinner with new or old friends.
NIPPONIA HOTEL Takehara Saltworks Town
A sake-focused inn with chic rooms and an in-house French restaurant.
Le Jardin des Douars
Romantic rural hotel set in the Essaouira hills with two pools, two cozy restaurants and a terrace with a bar.
A 30-minute hammam session and black-soap exfoliation.
