The Most Instagrammable Millennial Pink Hotels and Restaurants on the Planet
Millennial pink is not only a shade, it's a way of life — and we take our love of color seriously. The hue, which has essentially blown up in the last year, has gained notoriety and a cult-like following via Instagram and Pinterest in the fashion and tech space. And these photos give an even stronger case for staying in a boutique hotel or frequenting a restaurant blanketed in the pale rosy tone. Allow us to point the way...
Monte-Carlo Bay Hotel & Resort, Monaco: Just imagine this view... as you lounge in a sandy-bottomed lagoon that winds through the hotel's grounds. After an afternoon of relaxation, you can also partake in their Cinq Mondes spa, in-house casino, Michelin-starred restaurant Blue Bay, and outdoor bar Blue Gin, which has stunning views of the Mediterranean.
