Asia-Pacific, August, 2014 Merging the free-wheeling ideals of 60’s counter-culture with lo-fi jetset luxury, “Gypset” is as much a state of mind as a way to travel. This cheeky portmanteau has come to stand for a certain brand of luxury. One where bare feet are practically mandatory and escaping the trappings of the everyday are a given.
From the cozy and quaint in Mexico to an olive-strewn hillside in Turkey, pack the bare necessities and come along with Design Hotels™ for a sampling of the simpler side of globe-trotting.
EKIES All Senses Resort, Halkidiki, Greece

Kick off your shoes and slip into some flip-flops at EKIES All Senses Resort in Halkidiki, located on an unspoiled peninsula extending far into the Aegean Sea. The 64 rooms and suites are the perfect place to enjoy the important things in life: good food, delicious drinks, and breathtaking views. Incorporating cutting edge eco-friendly technology, the resort maintains an ethos of minimal waste with maximum comfort.
Maçakizi, Türkbükü, Turkey

Located in Türkbükü (the so-called “St. Tropez of Turkey”), Maçakizi is a hip haven in one of the most sought after vacation destinations. Fashion mavericks and celebrities rub shoulders with tanned and taught summer partygoers on the expansive sun deck. Featuring an award-winning restaurant and 74 rooms, this resort embodies the shimmering gypset aesthetic with its simple, chic furnishing.
Puro Oasis Urbano, Palma de Mallorca, Spain

Mallorca is a popular summer travel destination, and Puro Oasis Urbano is the place to be when you want to mingle with international glitterati in the heart of Palma’s old town. Any of the 51 rooms and suites are available to guests looking for a rollicking good time, drawing design influences from all four corners of the world and melding them together in this eclectic urban oasis.
Hotel La Semilla, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

Hotel La Semilla perfectly embodies the gypset lifestyle. Its location is a quiet residential area of Playa del Carmen, just outside the lively downtown scene. Owners Alex Schärer and Angie Rodriguez decorated and furnished the nine-room hotel with goods and curios sourced from local flea markets and their own international travels, resulting in a quirky and wholly unique ambience.
