Dream Hotel of the Day

Hotel Florblanca was recently named the Dream Hotel of the Day by West Elm company via Tablet Hotels.

The feature in Tablet Hotels describes Florblanca as an “intimate upscale hotel” and goes on to discuss the villas in detail.

“These eleven villas are expansive, comfortable, handsomely decorated, but stop short of any sort of ostentatiousness. Luxury here means swaying in the two-person hammock in your villa’s open-air living area, surrounded by jungle flora, not being dazzled by marble and gilt. All the villas feature outdoor bathrooms, in a sort of garden courtyard, with deep soaking tubs, biodegradable bath products and reminders to use the running water sparingly.”

We are honored to have been chosen as a “Dream Hotel of the Day” and we invite you to read the full feature on Florblanca in Tablet Hotels here.
