Life is too short. Why not stay in a place worth remembering.

Since 1999 HIP Hotels has specialised in finding the world’s most interesting and individual hotels. We feel travel should be memorable, and we think that where you stay is as important as where you go. From cutting edge urban hangouts in the world’s biggest cities to rustic retreats in the middle of nowhere, HIP Hotels offers an exotic global variety of choice.

It all started with a globe-trotting photographer writing about his favourite places to stay. Herbert Ypma still travels to, photographs, and writes about all the hotels featured in the HIP Hotels books and on Now there is also an expansive programme of Apps to allow the iPhone user to access all sorts of unique hotels.

Carib Beach is all about being barefoot in the sand. It is a collection of five idyllic beaches on five exotic islands in the turquoise waters of the Caribbean.

From the blindingly white sand of Parrot Cay in the remote Turks & Caicos archipelago, to a half-moon shaped piece of private heaven in a hidden corner of Grenada, to the pink-tinged sandy perfection that entirely surrounds tiny Harbour Island in the Bahamas, to the manicured delight of having an entire bay in Antigua to yourself, to the decadence of the best beach in Barbados being literally outside your room, these are the kinds of beaches we dream about when we are stuffed liked sardines in the train on the way to work on a Monday morning. The best part is that these idyllic beaches all have equally idyllic hotels to accompany them. You can go native all you want, without sacrificing an ounce of luxury.

Travel is all about adventure and experiences, and the HIP Hotels Applications make it easy. Each App gives you an elaborate slideshow of each property, complete with tips on where to eat, how to relax, where to explore and where you will sleep. Booking is even easier. A freephone number is featured on each App; simply highlight the number and you will be dispatched straight through to a Travel Guru at our call centre who can arrange everything, including airfares.
