Hotel: W Retreat and Spa, Vieques Island

This post is really for the winter-time.. but I can't wait :)

Vieques Island, Puerto Rico.

As recently as 2003 this tiny spot was used by the US military for a far less luxurious purpose.
Today, however, at the W Retreat and Spa, stylish hospitality reigns.

I love these interiors for their originality.



Patricia Urquoila of Studio Urquoila
 passed up the option to fill spaces with rattans and island florals,
and instead created a sophisticated hippy-esque decor vibe, 
fresh when set against clean architecture and stunning vistas.

the Living Room..




into the suites..





 afternoon tete-a-tetes..





cool, dazzling evenings.. sumptuous cuisine by Chef Alain Ducasse..





just the place to spend a week with your Honey in February, 
when Summer is but a dream and sub-zero temperatures have encompassed your entire being..




who's with me?!!

til next time..

I've been to Vieques twice, once for a wedding that was right next to the W. It has a gorgeous ocean view! And of course it is luxurious. The rest of the small island is a lot of fun too, though I recommend going pre/post busy season.

I'm with you :-) The hotel is fabulous. They really went all out with the colors which are bold and cheerful. Nice post as we look ahead to the cold months.
