Conde Nast Traveler 2021 Hot List

May 12th, 2021

Alice Marshall Public Relations is proud to have two properties selected in Conde Nast Traveler’s annual Hot List; White Elephant Palm Beach in Florida and Paradero Todos Santos in Mexico. The editors at Conde Nast Traveler have handpicked their favorite new hotel openings of the past year to feature in the prestigious awards.

The 32-room White Elephant Palm Beach opened on November 4, 2020 and is housed in the former Bradley Park Hotel – originally constructed in 1924 as one of the first resorts on Palm Beach’s Main Street. The design captures the spirit of a grand home while maintaining the ambiance of a landmarked boutique hotel. Breaking from the bright pinks and greens that dominate the Palm Beach aesthetic, the White Elephant Palm Beach features a neutral color palette with sleek metal accents and vibrant pops of color. The hardwood floors, Carrara marble, elegant tiles and woven rugs are all interpreted with contemporary style. Guests are welcomed onto the property by a seven-foot white elephant statue by Santa Fe-based artist Fredrick Prescott. (A “sister” elephant statue, Trunket, is on the grounds of White Elephant in Nantucket.)

Paradero Todos Santos, a 35-suite property, opened on February 1, 2021. Less than 50 miles from San Jose del Cabo Airport, Todos Santos has 355 days of sunshine per year and has become increasingly popular as a relaxed surf town and a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Paradero is spread across five acres of untouched land that is situated within the last unspoiled Mesa farming community – an agricultural area comprising 160 acres of family-owned farms. Due to its proximity to the Tropic of Cancer, the immediate landscape offers five distinct ecosystems: the desert with 200-year-old Cardon Cacti, the Sierra La Laguna Mountain range, miles of virgin beaches along the Pacific coast, an oasis with 5,000 palm trees, and farmland as far as the eye can see. Because of this diversity, UNESCO has designated Todos Santos as a Biosphere Reserve – one of only two such sites in Baja.

Switzerland’s La Réserve Eden au Lac also got a special recognition in the ‘Where to Travel Next’ category of the awards following its recognition on the 2020 Hot List. The French Empire-style building dates back to 1909 and houses the only luxury hotel located on Lac Zurich.
