Gay-owned Brown Beach House is a chic, retro, summer-house meets urban boutique hotel. The fusion just works, it is located just moments from the stretch of sandy beach, but also just a short stroll away from the main attractions of the White City behind it. We loved the hotel’s design, with lots of Carrera marble and other gorgeous embellishments throughout.

We felt right at home and loved our private sun terrace with stunning sea view. Just so as to ensure you never forget the hotel’s theme, facilities include its indoor Urban Beach lounge, in-house spa and a Flamingo Bar (you can’t miss its giant neon sign), a fun watering hole that regularly hosts cool parties to an up-for-it crowd of locals, expats and visitors alike.
