The Nici, Bournemouth 

The Nici stands as an exciting addition to the UK’s burgeoning South Coast boutique hotel and restaurant scene.

Featuring 88 luxury bedrooms, garden hot tub suites, contemporary dining options and a 30m outdoor heated swimming pool, this newly renovated 5-star retreat distinguishes itself with its distinct Miami-Beach club aesthetic and stunning cliff-top setting.

Located in Bournemouth, just a two-hour drive from London, the hotel is a 10-minute walk from the town center and offers direct access to its renowned sandy beaches via a switchback path.

A £27 million investment has completely transformed the property, formerly the Savoy hotel dating from 1912, with bold, art-deco-inspired interiors.

The rooms are bright and airy, painted white and adorned with luxurious green velvet throws on the beds, complemented by gold detailing and brushed brass fittings.

Guests staying in rooms on the south side of the hotel will enjoy stunning views of the beach and the Purbeck peninsula.

A vibrant bar and restaurant attract not only guests but also locals. Dishes such as creamed sweetcorn with pickled jalapeño and coriander, burrata with compressed melon, violet artichokes and salsa verde, and pea and shallot ravioli served with a summer truffle dressing set the menu apart from typical hotel fare.

Guests can savor their meal in the stylish restaurant setting or on the terrace overlooking the ocean.

For a taste of Miami without the expensive airfare, the Nici hits the mark.
