SUMMER DESTINATION GUIDE
Come to Capri with us. Or Rio. Or Bali. Or Marrakech. Wherever you and your Aura takes you, we'll meet you there <3
DESTINATION NO. 1
Capri, YES. Here's the download on what’s what on the most picturesque island in the middle of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
SIGHTSEE: Rent a boat for the day (buongiorno, capitano!) to check out Capri's iconic Faraglioni rocks, then hit up the Blue Grotto for some seriously mind-bending underwater views
EAT: While in Italy, do as all others do and indulge in some delicious gelato at Gelateria Buonocore - opt for the freshly made waffle cone over a cup (you won't regret it).
SLEEP: Let your head hit the pillows at JK Place and dream of the breathtaking views right outside your very window.
PARTY: For the best sunset views in this seaside town, a cocktail or two at Jacky Bar will deliver.
SHOP: Buy handmade custom sandals from a local sandal maker (made famous by Jackie Kennedy in the 60s).
DESTINATION NO. 2
WE <3 RIO
Adventure seekers, take note. Rio de Janeiro’s packed with thrills between the South Atlantic and Brazil’s tropical forests.
SIGHTSEE: Cristo Redentor, or Christ the Redeemer, is arguably the most iconic sight to see in Rio. This giant statue overlooks the *entire* city - talk about breathtaking views.
EAT: If Michelin stars are your thing, Oro will check all of your fine-dining boxes.
SLEEP: The Santa Teresa Hotel is the perfect hilltop stay with views of the entire city and ocean, while also offering a peaceful escape from the noisy city.
PARTY: You may have heard of this little festival thing that happens yearly in Rio. ;-) If crowds don’t intimidate you, consider visiting during Carnival to experience Brazilian culture to its fullest.
SHOP: Take a wander down Avenida Ataulfo de Paiva and check out the variety of unique luxury boutiques and upscale restaurants and cafes.
DESTINATION NO. 3
BALI IS FOR BABES
And in our mind, everyone’s a babe deserving of a vacay in the tropical and dreamy Bali province of Indonesia.
SIGHTSEE: There’s no shortage of sights to see, starting with the famous Tegalalang Rice Terrace and ending with the Pura Luhur Lempuyang Temple.
EAT: Where’s one place to taste all that Indonesia’s 17,000 islands have to offer? Nusantara by Locavore, of course.
SLEEP: While in Bali, shop local. Right in the center of Bali’s cultural capital is the Ubud Art Market loaded with clothing, accessories, and souvenirs crafted by local artists.
PARTY: Don’t let its name fool you: the Potato Head Beach Club is one of Bali’s most renowned party spots. Dance to an electrifying DJ set against the idyllic ocean backdrop.
SHOP: While in Bali, shop local. Right in the center of Bali’s cultural capital is the Ubud Art Market loaded with clothing, accessories, and souvenirs crafted by local artists.
DESTINATION NO. 4
ONE WAY TO MARRAKECH
It’s getting *hot* in the Red City, in a good kind of way. Get yourself a one-way ticket bc who knows if you’ll want to come back ;-)
SIGHTSEE: The Koutoubia Mosque is the largest in Marrakech, beautifully ornamented and with a large plaza filled with gardens you won’t want to miss.
EAT: For traditional Moroccan dining in the medina, Dar Yacout is the oldest restaurant in a beautiful old riad – start with cocktails on the roof before dinner by the courtyard pool.
SLEEP: The Oberoi in Marrakech is the grandest of the grand, carved from marble and nestled before the Atlas mountains on 28-acres of olive groves.
PARTY: Good for dinner or a drink, Le Comptoir is a busy late-night restaurant open every night, with relaxed dining and an upstairs shisha lounge, DJ bar, and cabaret.
SHOP: 33 Marjorelle is a must-see concept store opposite YSL’s Majorelle Garden. Prepare to be amazed by their top range of local designer wares and fashion.
DESTINATION NO. 5
NEW YORK, NEW YORK
We wouldn’t be Aurate if it weren’t for New York. So, for the city that has our eternal love, here’s the best of the best.
SIGHTSEE: Head to South Street Seaport for a drink outdoors, then catch a ferry to Brooklyn and get amazing views of the iconic Brooklyn Bridge - it’s the best of these two boroughs.
EAT: Dante West Village is the place to be. Their martinis are to die for, especially during their martini happy hour. Talk about ‘gram-worthy. Oh, and their food is pretty spectacular, too. ;-)
SLEEP: Sleep in style, like your fave NYC-based influencer, at the Ludlow Hotel. It’s modern for sure, but its vintage charms are sure to delight.
PARTY: La Esquina. Don’t let the tiny and brightly-lit taqueria upstairs fool you - there’s a teeny tiny door that will lead you downstairs into inarguably one of the coolest hidden bars the city has to offer.
SHOP: Designer delights await you in Soho. Enough said.
