"Hip Hotels Beach" highlights forty hotels on the shores of six continents, each one harmonizing the best of international design with a deep sympathy for local tradition, landscape and ecology.
Destinations include Broome, Western Australia (former pearldiving capital of the world), the dramatic volcanic Greek island of Santorini, and a luxury ecological reserve on Mexico's Pacific Coast.
It's not all Robinson Crusoe-style minimalism: Hi Hotel in Nice, France , is shaped by up-and-coming design star Matali Crasset.
