The ” millennial pink ” color is at once current and retro. And the same can be said for these millennial pink destinations, which attract the most fashionable with their another-era charm. Wes Anderson must have channeled the aesthetic of these resorts when he created The Grand Budapest Hotel: They’re as bold and they’re as brilliant (and as Instagrammable).
1/10 THE BEVERLY HILLS HOTEL
The stories from inside the Beverly Hills Hotel’s famous rooms (or, rather, these famous bungalows) are enough to make us blush. For example, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor, who were in residence in the 1960s, were known to order two bottles of vodka at breakfast—and the same at lunch.
2/2 BELMOND MOUNT NELSON HOTEL
This rose-colored resort has “beat” at the heart of Cape Town, South Africa, since 1899. The Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel is an historic destination that was described by Winston Churchill as “…a most excellent and well-appointed establishment, which may be thoroughly appreciated after a sea voyage.”
3/10 HOTEL AMBOS MUNDOS
Hotel Ambos Mundos in Cuba’s Centro Histórico was a second home to Ernest Hemingway in the 1930s. (The author finished his book, Death in the Afternoon, in room 511.) This salmon-colored destination continues to attract creatives with art exhibitions and music performances.
4/10 THE ROYAL HAWAIIAN
The “Pink Palace of the Pacific” announced a new era for Hawaii’s tourism when it debuted with a black-tie event in 1927. The Shirley Temple (one of the pinkest drinks) was invented at the Royal Hawaiian, a Luxury Collection Resort, Waikiki when the actress visited in the 1930s.
5/10 ATLANTIS PARADISE ISLAND
The activities at the Atlantis Paradise Island are as attractive as the resort—from the 141-acre Aquaventure park to the Tom Weiskopf–designed Ocean Club Golf Course. The Royal Towers are home to the Bridge Suite, which features a 22-karat-gold chandelier and a seven-attendant staff.
6/10 COBBLERS COVE
This house on Barbados’s coast was called Camelot when it was constructed in 1944. It was soon renamed Cobblers Cove after the pink-breasted Cobbler bird (or Frigatebird) that inhabits in the area. In the 1980s, it was reintroduced as an inn—an island secret with charm.
7/10 THE HAMILTON PRINCESS HOTEL & BEACH CLUB
Because what color is prettier for princesses than pink? Bermuda’s Hamilton Princess Hotel & Beach Club boasts an art collection that “pops” as much as its exterior: It features Pop Art pieces by Banksy, Damien Hirst, KAWS, Jeff Koons, Robert Rauschenberg, and Andy Warhol.
8/10 BOCA RATON RESORT & CLUB
The Boca Raton Resort & Club was once the estate of architect Addison Mizner (whose house is, now, a 361-room accommodation). The Cloister, which was constructed in 1926, is a coral-colored exercise in the architecture of the Mediterranean Revival and the Spanish Colonial Revival.
9/10 MONTE-CARLO BAY HOTEL & RESORT
Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort is the resort of the Riviera, with panoramic views from its own peninsula. The chic destination features a first-class spa and three restaurants (including Blue Bay, which boasts a Michelin star).
10/10 THE COLONY HOTEL
The Colony Hotel is dressed (or, painted) to impress—an iconic destination that welcomes the well-heeled from Worth Avenue with a glass (or two) of rosé. The restaurant, Polo, caters to Palm Beach’s elite with a classic menu and a preppy theme.
