Relax and enjoy la vie en rose.
Enjoy the hospitality at the Rajmahal Palace.
Renowned as the Pink City, Jaipur should be top of your list for a rosy break. The city acquired its moniker when back in 1876 the city’s buildings were painted pink, a colour that denotes hospitality, to welcome the Prince of Wales and Queen Victoria, who were visiting the country.
The pretty Rajmahal Palace boasts brightly patterned interiors, manicured grounds and large marble bathrooms with rose-scented toiletries.
There’s yoga on the terrace first thing in the morning, a stunning art deco swimming pool to cool off in and a dining hall serving traditional Indian dishes washed down with champagne in pink glasses.
Or set-off on a Pink City Excursion exploring the rose-hued City Palace and Amer Fort.
Pink hues in Marrakesh.
Amanjena with its rose-washed walls inspired by old Marrakesh, positively drips with Moroccan charm. Soaring pink columns welcome guests to the lobby area and the pretty-in-pink theme continues into the guest rooms with pink pillared baths set in marble.
Amanjena means ‘peaceful paradise’ and guests are sure to feel the serenity in the palace’s gardens with their tiled courtyards and gently trickling fountains.
Guests can grab a hotel bike to explore the surrounding desert. The property has a booking.com Travel Sustainable badge and can provide information regarding local ecosystems and culture should guests wish to embark on an Atlas Mountains, Four Valleys and Waterfalls Tour, meeting local Berber communities.
Marrakesh with its bustling markets, museums and historic sites is a short drive away.
Pink paradise at the Paradiso.
The Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel is a nod to kitsch 1970s Miami cool with its chromatic tiled flooring, brightly rimmed mirrors and neon lighting.
Go full Barbiecore with a dip in the hotel’s pastel pink pool or sip on a pink grapefruit Paloma cocktail from the circular bar as the pink-hued sun sets over Ibiza’s west coast skyline.
For those who want to embrace doll life, the hotel has a glass-walled room in the middle of the lobby where guests can sleep for a night in full-view.
The hotel is also home to an art gallery and a tattoo parlour. Outside of the hotel, there are picture-perfect beaches within walking distance.
The Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel is a booking.com Sustainable Stay and invests a percentage of revenue back into community projects. As Barbie herself advocates, always leave things better than you found them.
(Please note that The Paradiso Ibiza Art Hotel is an adult-only property).
Candy crush at Cobblers Cove.
The pastel pink 1940s mansion that is Cobblers Cove in Saint Peter’s Bay boasts a stunning beachfront location.
The sandy beach runs all the way from the hotel to the beachside bars and restaurants of nearby Speightstown.
Back at the hotel, there are plenty of watersports with windsurfing, sailing and water skiing, or grab a poolside lounger shaded by the pastel-pink pool umbrellas. Alternatively, head to the hotel’s Sea Moon Spa for a relaxing massage or beauty treatment.
Dine at the hotel’s Camelot Restaurant in the evening and watch the pink sun drift down over the Caribbean Sea, perhaps with a chilled glass of rose wine to-hand.
In the pink on Sunset Boulevard.
The Beverly Hills Hotel - Dorchester Collection on Los Angeles’ famous Sunset Boulevard is known as the Pink Palace. The property took its style cue from the blush facade of its original building and now features bubble gum pink walls and a pink bougainvillaea-draped courtyard dotted with twinkling lights.
Interiors boast luxurious bronze fixtures, buttery leather sofas and marble bathrooms.
Outside, relax by the pool in a private cabana with a sweet pink cadillac cocktail. The hotel is also a short-drive from one of Barbie’s favourite spots on the sand, Malibu beach. Or grab the Ken in your life and head to Venice Beach for a spot of rollerblading.
