Whenever I hear or say the word Coqui Coqui it brings a smile to my face, not because it’s a common name for several species of frogs in Puerto Rico, but because it’s the name of a beautiful boutique hotel that brings to mind paradise and serenity.
Close your eyes and imagine you dive in a heavenly place, caressed by the fragrance of coconuts, surrounded by the strong tones of tropical woods and mesmerized by the vanilla orchid’s scent. Imagine you wake up in a dream of fragrant plumerias, smoked tropical woods, spicy peppermints, tobacco leaves, juicy limes and orange blossoms.
Now open your eyes.
Welcome to Coqui Coqui.
This boutique haven was born through the scents of perfume and inspired by the Yucatan Peninsula, a place that enhances the Coqui Coqui perfumery founded by Ms. Bonato, an Italian accessory line owner, and her husband, Nicolas Malleville, an Argentine fashion model. The small tasteful hotels are scattered around Yucatan and celebrate and cherish the country’s history with it’s stately colonial architecture. I first came across Coqui Coqui in the New York Times and have been hooked and wanting to go ever since.
Take one look at their website here and I’m sure you’ll feel the same way.
