Coqui Coqui is indeed a magical place. Rich in culture and beauty, according to our dear friend and photographer Sidney Bensimon, “the stones of the walls hold history like the ruins of Tulum and bring in a unique and rich look.” For this a+o passport feature we traveled to Tulum, Mexico on the Yucatan Peninsula, home to haunting Mayan ruins and a boutique hotel, Coqui Coqui, that radiates not only exotic inspiration but a strong sense of tradition and harmony.
The owners of the resort kept the design simple, monochromatic and organic, respectful of the land and its surroundings. Adjacent to the hotel is a perfumery exuding aromatic combinations of light florals, tropical woods, and hints of peppermint, tobacco, lime and citrus. It was the perfect setting to shoot Getaway 15, a collection of resort-wear replete with dreamy maxis, embellished caftans and a palette of warm tropical tones. Sidney and model Brooke adventured through Tulum, paying respect to the powerful energy there; a constant reminder of true, natural beauty.
