The World’s Top 15 Coolest New Hotels.
As a boutique residence and spa that grew out of a perfume brand, it seems logical that Coqui Coqui chose Bora-Bora as its new destination. After all, the Polynesian island is known for its fragrant vegetation, including ylang ylang, jasmine, sandalwood and vanilla. Having opened several hotels over the past 14 years, the Yucatan-based brand is now adding the first residence outside Mexico to its portfolio. The fact that founders Nicolas Malleville and Francesca Bonato moved to the South Pacific island for a year, getting to know the location, its sights and sounds, indicates that this new hotel is likely to be as lovingly equipped and thoughtfully decorated as fans have come to expect. Not yet open, the hotel is slated to debut in autumn 2018. [Photo: Coba, Mexico; Melissa Dali]
