Boho by the Beach

Inspiration: Finolhu, The Maldives

Summer is finally here and the beach season has officially dawned upon us. Perhaps you’re planning to chill by the beach, grooving to the breezy tunes of your favourite summer hits, or snuggle up with a book, taking in the pristine views of the emerald-hued ocean. We’ve found just the right place to do all these and more.

Enjoy a vibrant new era of a chic getaway at Finolhu, a charming new beach resort in Maldives. Located in the UNESCO world biosphere of Baa Atoll, Finolhu is the ultimate island experience complete with a buzzy bon-vivant vibe in 125 villas by the ocean, beach and lagoon, fun beach clubs and hip F&B outlets.

We’re channelling boho by the beach thanks to the resort’s beachy bohemian inspired villas. The Ocean Pool Villa (pictured above) incorporates vibrant colours and patterns and a textural mix of different reclaimed woods, and elegant crystal chandeliers, giving the breezy atmosphere a modern twist.

Transform your home into a seaside retreat with these beach inspired homewares with a boho twist. Home accessories like a brightly hued cushion, chair or rug; and a woven basket, wood frame mirror or wicker sunlounger for texture is a great start.

Beach Polo Chic

Beach Polo Chic | What to wear | Travelshopa

This weekend (June 4-5, 2016) competitive beach polo will gallop its way to Singapore shores; in its own unique style, of course. If you’ve never attended beach polo (or polo for that matter), one thing might pop into your mind. What does one wear to a polo match?

While almost any style of attire is acceptable at a polo match, BMW Singapore Beach Polo Championship 2016 promises to call for attire with a St. Tropez flair. Ladies, we will be going with a light sundress, a pair of sunglasses, minimal accessories, with sandals or wedges. Save the high heels for another occasion – you will be amongst the sand at Tanjong Beach Club after all. For the gents we’ll be going with a complementary look – a casual white tee or polo shirt with Bermuda shorts, and light summer shoes like a pair of espadrilles.

Also known as the games of Maharajahs and Kings, the two-day event promises to be an adrenaline-pumping event combined with high-class entertainment by renowned international DJs – one of Singapore‘s hottest tickets of the year indeed. So… you don’t want to be too fancy but just effortless enough with a touch of chic. It is a polo match, not a pool party.

Phuket Beaches | Postcards From | Travelshopa

An excursion away from the frenetic and relentless pace of the city can be extremely liberating. Take that from a faithful city dweller who’s used to confined and artificially landscaped spaces. Being transported to Phuket’s open horizons and wide expanse of sea can be a hypnotic experience.

Winding coastal roads curling along the west coast of the island lead us through a succession of beaches and hilly terrains. In some of the more secluded beaches you’ll find little pockets of paradise with uninterrupted views of clear skies and azure waters. A long stretch of smooth white sand dotted by palm trees coax you to spend a few hours of relaxation under the shade, where the only audible sounds are those of the waves rolling onto the beach.
