Describing her inspiration as ‘barefoot luxury’, Hoppen has informed the laid-back lifestyle on offer at the destination with a gentle coastal palette punctuated by pops of blue and okra yellow, while organic materials are used throughout for a tactile experience that blends the resort with it’s phenomenal natural surroundings.
