9 Pantone Living Coral Places to Help You Travel More Colorfully This Year
Pantone’s color of the year, Living Coral, has already made a massive splash — we’re seeing it everywhere, from new beauty products and on-trend fashion finds to home decor accents that’ll give any house or apartment a trendy touch. Haven’t hopped on the bandwagon yet? Fret not: We’ve put together a list of nine coral-colored places to plan a getaway this year.
1. The Laylow Waikiki, Honolulu, HI: Looking to treat yourself to the ultimate Hawaiian getaway this year? Honolulu is home to natural wonders like dormant volcano Diamond Head, miles of beach, and the historic Pearl Harbor USS Arizona Memorial. Even more, it’s a bustling city that’s great for shopping, dining, and entertainment. “This urban oasis in Honolulu allows for full kick-back mode with a saltwater pool and lounging spots filled with bright coral decor that blends mid-century modern with Hawaiian flair,” Emma Leggat, the director of communications at HotelTonight, gushed. Prices start at $209 per night. (Photo via HotelTonight)
2. La Valencia Hotel, San Diego, CA: Dubbed the “Pink Lady,” this $199-per-night property is known for its classic Spanish architecture and old-world charm. “It has courtyards, hand-painted murals, and real Living Coral elements,” Leggat explained. The ultimate Southern California beach city, San Diego has surf culture, beautiful sunsets, and a happening downtown scene that are worthy of any vacation time you may have been saving up.

3. Hotel San Cristobal Baja, Todos Santos, Mexico: “Named for Saint Christopher, patron of travelers, surfers, and sailors, this beachfront hotel surrounds a chic pool and lounge area featuring a bright coral wall and offers spectacular views of the Sierra de la Laguna mountains and the Pacific Ocean,” Leggat told us. We especially love the beachy-casual rooms. Each one features luxe coral Sferra linens and custom kimono robes for guests to wear during their stay. A stay at the Hotel San Cristobal Baja starts at around $350 a night. (Photo via HotelTonight)
4. Penthouse at the Beach, Tybee Island, GA: “Located in the ‘Coral House Triplex,’ this peachy penthouse is less than one block to the beach,” the HomeAway Team confirmed. “It’s also within walking distance of Tybee Island’s best restaurants and shops.” Good to know: This coral-colored property welcomes pets and boasts a large balcony that’s perfect for sunbathing or snapping dreamy sunsets.

5. Babylon Reef Villa, Cayman Islands: Have a bachelorette party to plan or looking to lock down a spot you can fit your whole squad? At $710 per night, this coral-colored, ocean-front villa can comfortably fit six people, with three bedrooms and 2.5 baths. According to HomeAway, this hotspot is also recently renovated with a sundeck and private pool — and it’s located on one of the best shallow snorkeling sites around. The natural light, scenic ocean views, and authentic Caribbean design will constantly remind you that you’re on island time, making this an ideal spot to kick back and relax. (Photo via HomeAway)
6. Avalon Hotel, Beverly Hills: Smack dab in one of Los Angeles’ most famous zip codes, this impeccably designed property blends Old Hollywood glamour with contemporary style that’ll give you heart eyes, all for the reasonable rate of about $175 per night. “This property entices with outdoor lounging cabanas that surround an hourglass pool. It’s a fitting tribute to Marilyn Monroe, who was rumored to live here in the ’50s,” Leggat dished. The Kelly Wearstler-designed restaurant, Viviane, is also a must-visit. “You can enjoy 1950s-inspired cocktails surrounded by bright coral and teal decor,” she says. (Photo via HotelTonight)
7. Medina Mansion, Marrakesh: This riad is a common type of house in Morocco and can sleep 11 people with two full suites, two additional bedrooms, four full bathrooms, and three half-baths. It features a huge terrace, interior garden, and is adorned in traditional decoration — all for about $155 per night. Staying here is a truly authentic experience: there’s a housekeeper on site to make breakfast each day, as well as to handle any other requests you and your BFFs might have. “Look to your housekeeper with requests like cooking classes, local advice, help with tours, or finding hot spots,” HomeAway suggests. There may be no better way to experience the Red City! (Photo via HomeAway)
8. Adobe-Style Dome Home, Costa Rica: Looking to go off the grid for a legit digital detox this year? Look no further than this adobe-style dome, nestled in the jungle with its own private garden. The dome home also boasts a private pool, spa-style washroom, and nature observation deck, a prime watching spot for shooting stars. Even more, it’s a short five-minute walk to the beach. Stays start at about $130 per night. (Photo via HomeAway)
9. Bejacu Beach Villa, Turks & Caicos: This massive villa is by far the biggest splurge on the list, but thoughtful math and a big, fun social circle could make splitting the costs a real possibility. This one could even serve as property for a retreat! For $8,625/night, guests get instant access to eleven hilltop acres above the shore, two wraparound infinity pools, and a staircase leading down to a completely private and secluded beach. The villa, designed by Mexican architect Marco Aldaco, has been featured in Architectural Digest and offers six bedrooms and seven bathrooms. (Photo via HomeAway)
